  1. Stalie? What a great name!

  2. This would be comic if it weren’t so tragic…

  3. I’d just like to thank my Mommy Russia, and my Daddy Karl Marx, and most of all, my good old Uncle Joe. Thanks Unc, we couldn’t have done half as well without you!

  4. Thank you for this link. This gives me something specific and timely to cite when I say the UN is a farce and the U.S. should withdraw from it, and my friends look at me like I’m an idiot.

  5. This would be comic if it weren’t so tragic…

    Remember, one award is a tragedy. A million awards is a statistic.

  6. No, a tragedy is having David Letterman as the host.

  7. Steveo, the UN is an arena of competition. We shouldn’t withdraw; we should try to win.

    So what’s the deal with Freedom House? Are they the neoconservative answer to Amnesty International?

  8. SPD,

    Excellent paraphrasing of Stalin’s famous quote. I stand by my first comments.

  9. To our anarchist friends, I call your attention to page 67 of the report (“Trend Arrow”).

  10. The UN is “an arena of competition”?

    Some games are best not played.

  11. . . . the UN is an arena of competition. We shouldn’t withdraw; we should try to win.

    And you voted for Kerry? To compete in the UN?

    W competed in the UN; Kerry would have surrendered to it.
