I'm watching CNN and not only do they talk about re-naming "French Fries" as "Freedom Fries", they talk about "Liberty Dressing" instead of (you guessed it) "French Dressing". So I guess there are hick morons in places other than Kansas City too!
I heard about Saddam wanting to have a live debate with GW Bush - I think he should take him up on that. Since "arguments" between nations are generally just arguments between the leaders of nations, they should really just try to resolve things now before it gets out of hand. But of course, I really don't think GW Bush is very good at impromptu speaking - I don't think he has enough RAM or something.
And - here's a message just for the sound folks at CNN: Knock it off with the "Showdown with Saddam" music. We know war is scary without them playing music like freaking Sephiroth is about to descend. Grr..
