Okay, it’s the lies.
Video of Bush joking about not finding WMD in Iraq interspersed with
pictures from Iraq.
They didn’t find the naked SCOTUS funny (but it is).
New blog chronicling Republicans (or previous Republicans) who endorse
‘The founder of the U.S. Christian Coalition said Tuesday he told President George W. Bush before the invasion of Iraq that he should prepare Americans for the likelihood of casualties, but the president told him, “We’re not going to have any casualties.”‘ (Hyperlinks added by me.)
This is interesting to me only because it’s obvious he’s wearing “something”, and the administration’s official response isn’t “he’s wearing something, but we can’t tell you what it is”, but instead “he’s not wearing anything”. My feeling is that if you’re going to make stuff up, at least make it sound like it could be the truth.
This is a blog post about Queen of Sky, a Delta flight attendant who was fired with no notice and no chance to make amends for posting “racy” pictures of herself on her photoblog. She has filed a discrimination lawsuit against them, claiming that the pictures are no different from the many others that male flight attendants have made publicly available. I can see her point – the pictures (at least the ones I’ve seen) are not porn. I can also see Delta’s point – companies would like to control their public image. I haven’t made up my mind yet about who’s right here. Technically, I suppose it comes down to whether Delta had a published policy on employee communications that was clear and understandable. But, on the other hand, lots of people have blogs, and that number is growing daily. Blogs mean publicity that can’t necessarily be controlled, and corporate policies will need to deal with that.
