I find the televising of photos of Hussein’s sons unseemly, if not repulsive. I hate this war, but assuming that we needed to prove something to Iraqis, couldn’t we have shown the photos in a more solemn manner, say in the Baghdad City Hall for whomever wanted to see, or shown them to an Al Jazeera reporter, who could have reported, but not shown, their death? I’m hoping I don’t happen upon these pictures by accident. By now, it seems clear that their death hasn’t stopped attacks on our soldiers. Can the Bush administration make decisions based on reality, or does ideology alone dictate U.S. policy?

In better news, I read this morning that Arianna Huffington may run against Gray Davis in California’s recall election. I’m 110% against the recall, but I’m excited about Huffington. She’s gone from nutty right-wing wife of rich loser Michael Huffington to wacky independent gadfly. My friends disagree, but I think Arianna’s great. The bad news (for her) is, I hate the recall more than I like her. My vote’s with Gray.
