It's Valentine's Day. Accordingly, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch has an editorial about a particular 'couple' that has been, shall we say, well-covered by the blogosphere.

If you only had one more edition of the Daily Howler to read before the world ended,read this one. It shows that, well, liberal bias in the good old days of JFK might not have been driven by any liberal desires of the press. Rather, they slanted to JFK because he and his staff made the press contented.

Just like Dubya did in 2000.

So the truth comes out...the media have always been butt-sniffing toadies out for themselves.

It did have the unintended effect of having someone in there who could keep the planet from melting down as a result of the Cuban Missile Crisis. The unintended effect this time could be just the opposite.

Sen. Jim Bunning (R-clown shoe) royally contradicts himself, bringing great mirth to Blogistan.

Matthew Yglesias and Jack Osbourne: separated at birth?

You decide.

The Westminster dog show, the Big Dog (pardon the expression) of dog shows in the U.S., awarded it best in show to a Kerry Blue Terrier named Mick. The Boston Globe is investigating if the lineage of the dog proves that he is a Kohn Blue Terrier with Jewish grandparents.

About that terrorist camp that has been operating in northern Iraq (in the no-fly zone) for quite a while now...you know, the "elusive link between Iraq and al Qaeda" that is supposed to be a pretext for war with Iraq. The group running that camp is a group of probably anti-Saddam Islamist Kurds out mostly to cut down groups of anti-Saddam secular Kurds. So reports a British reporter invited to see the camp in question. The camp also supposedly doesn't have crap for chemical weapons.

The reporter does say that the group's (Ansar al Islam) assertion that no Arabs have been imported stretches credibility.

So why has the Shrubbery allowed that camp to operate? The powers given to them right after 9-11 allows for the destruction of the camp. Yet even after the murder of a US diplomat in Jordan, it's still there.

Not much detail, but a couple of Marines were arrested for attempting to obtain materials in order to bomb Camp Lejeune.

I would like to comment that that part of Pennsylvania is white white white, and is the "in between" part that James Carville was referring to in his famous quip, "Pennsylvania is Philadelphia and Pittsburgh with Alabama in between."

UPDATE: One of the people that was arrested claims they were only kidding about blowing up their supervisor on the base. Apparently, the slackjawed yokels were having some problems with their superiors in the USMC.

How silly is Joan Vennochi of the Boston Globe about John Kerry? She sounds like George Costanza's mother after discovering that Donna Chang's name was shortened from Changstein.
