Irregular commentary on whatever's on my mind -- politics, sports, current events, and life in general. After twenty years of writing business and community newsletters, fifteen years of fantasy baseball newsletters, and two years of email "columns", this is, I suppose, the inevitable result: the awful conceit that someone might actually care to read what I have to say. Posts may be added often, rarely, or never again. As always, my mood and motivation are unpredictable.

He Makes Netanyahu Look Like Gandhi
The Prevaricating Peach has appointed David Friedman as the next U.S. Ambassador to Israel. Friedman a far-right, hard-line belligerent. He rejects a Palestinian state, he's called President Obama a Jew-hater, he's called liberal-leaning Jews Nazi sympathizers, he encourages more settlements on the West Bank, and wants to move the American Embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. He's a real charmer.
Must every member of the incoming administration be a complete asshole?
This Friedman character is still fighting the Crusades! He's so far right, he makes Bibi Netanyahu look like Mahatma Gandhi!
This blog is offered as an amusement to any open-minded, liberal-leaning readers who may stumble upon it, and as an educational service to the closed-minded conservative crowd.
I hope you like it. If you don't, get your own blog.
