Gringo Unleashed translates an article in which Manuel Gutiérrez Fierro equates Bush = Hitler, U.S. = Israel, Mexicans = Palestinians. Gutiérrez doesn’t stop at being ridiculous, he rolls right along into hysteria.
Lost Budgie and Dumb Ox post about how Hospital Staff Executed Patients To Facilitate Hurricane Katrina Staff Evacuation. Shameful, and I hope all those involved are prosecuted.

U.S. Reclassifies Many Documents in Secret Review
I still have a heavy cold, but Maria recommended Zicam and I’m felling well enough to make a round-up of the articles she sent. I highly recommend Zicam.
Crazy first ladies
Maria’s favorite columnist, Bert Preluski, writes about Voices from the left
However, if there’s anything worse than having to listen to these shnooks screaming to the choir, it’s having to listen to the ladies on the left. I refer to the sisterhood that includes the likes of Susan Estrich, Teresa Heinz-Kerry, Nancy Pelosi, Gloria Allred, Barbara Boxer, Cindy Sheehan and, of course, Hillary Clinton. Each and every one of them has a voice that sounds like fingernails raking a blackboard.
I don’t want to suggest that their voices are all alike, aside from the fact that each has the power to make your ears bleed. Some, after all, are whinier than others, some are harsher, while a few are so nasal you’d think that Estrich, for instance, must have adenoids the size of grapefruits.
Howard Gordon, one of three executive producers of “24,” freely admits that the original model for Ms. Smart’s character was Martha Mitchell, the volatile wife of Richard M. Nixon’s attorney general, John N. Mitchell, known for her late-night calls to reporters outlining outrageous theories about conspiracy in the Nixon White House, a number of which turned out to be true. The Nixon administration response — just as in the fictional Logan administration — was to label Martha Mitchell as “unstable.”
My memories of Martha Mitchell aren’t all that recent (and yes, if memory serves me, she was an unstable woman), but Mr. Gordon could also seek inspiration in the persent from watching Hillary’s tirades, or Nancy Pelosi’s rantings.

The Bush Isle of Thanatos
They are all profilers now
Tempers are flaring over a United States demand to open to scholars and researchers a huge repository of information about the Holocaust contained in the files of the International Tracing Service at Bad Arolsen, Germany.
Based in part on documents gathered by Allied forces as they liberated Nazi concentration camps, the stock of files held by the organization stretches for about 15.5 miles, and holds information on 17.5 million people. It amounts to one of the largest closed archives anywhere.
Don’t holler out ‘Remember Chappaquiddick!’ while Ted Kennedy is present.
