Drink and Drive

Well who says you can't drink and drive. This makes it pratical. This would sell well over here in europe. No open container law. ;)

Some interesting stuff here. The idea of mixing stuff with beer is kind of odd, though I do remember drinking beer and tomato juice with my grandmohter, Creta. This looks interesting, and not just for the name:

am not sure if Skip & Go Naked is what happened when the cocktail's creator enjoyed a few too many of his or her invention, but it is a great name. If you dare to try it yourself throw a few ice cubes into a tall glass. Fill it with 1 oz. of gin, 2 oz. of sweet and sour mix. Top it off with your favorite beer (a lighter pilsner style would work best with this one). Just make sure you lock the doors first in case you decide to take reenact the cocktail's moniker.

On Some Sad Laps, No Heads Bob: "This morning on Air America, Jerry Springer ran the tape of Rush Limbaugh's bizarre outburst against Al Gore's upcoming cable news venture for 'yoof' (as they say in British papers), mocking its mission to represent the viewpoints of young people..."

Great post! Is it just me, or are the wingnuts really going mad these days?

Terrorism: now you see it, now you don't

The scandal this morning, a good old-fashioned scoop apparently reported only by Knight-Ridder's Jonathan Landay, is that the State Department has decided not to publish its Patterns of Global Terrorism report this year, after the report showed an increase in terrorist incidents from 175 in 2003, which was already the highest in two decades, to 625. But the real scandal, which Landay mentions but doesn't dwell on, is this: 'The statistics did not include attacks on U.S. soldiers in Iraq, which President Bush as recently as Tuesday called 'a central front in the war on terror.'' The same was true in last year's report, of course, which, as you may remember, had to be revised because of 'math errors', causing poor Colin Powell to be 'disturbed'. Poor man.

And in a strong candidate for the political humor of the day post, 'A senior State Department official, speaking on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue, confirmed that the publication was being eliminated, but said the allegation that it was being done for political reasons was 'categorically untrue.'' And who would doubt that? Interestingly, although I can't imagine that Landay didn't ask the question, the anonymous State Department official evidently didn't say that the reason was exactly. Saving paper? Couldn't squeeze the printing costs into that $100 billion 'war on terror' budget?
