In an unusually public rebuke, Prime MinisterEhud Olmert of Israel said Monday that Secretary of StateCondoleezza Rice had been forced to abstain from a United Nationsresolution on Gaza that she helped draft, after Mr. Olmert placed a phone call to President Bush.
“I said, ‘Get me President Bush on the phone,’ ” Mr. Olmert said in a speech in the southern Israeli city of Ashkelon, according to The Associated Press. “They said he was in the middle of giving a speech in Philadelphia. I said I didn’t care: ‘I need to talk to him now,’ ” Mr. Olmert continued. “He got off the podium and spoke to me.”
Imagine for a minute a Democratic President got out from behind a podium and take orders from the President of France. Me thinks the wingnuts would be losing there minds. But as John Cole says, "Crickets."

Many years ago, the Israeli scholar Yehuda Elkana published an essay in which he noted that there were two lessons one could draw from the horrors he'd witnessed as a boy at Auschwitz. The first was "this must never happen again." The second was "this must never happen to us again." Of the two, wrote Elkana, a member of the Israeli-Palestinian Peace-International, a network of scholars committed to ending the occupation and promoting a just settlement of the conflict, "I have always held to the former and seen the latter as catastrophic."

Some gifts people give are pointless: Styling mousse to Dick Vitale. An all-you-can-eat card to Kate Moss. The BCS Championship given to Oklahoma or Florida. It means nothing because the BCS has no credibility. Florida? Oklahoma? Who cares? Utah is the national champion.
Reilly blames the greed of the BCS conferences. But I think that the brothers at NOIS have the real answer.
Yes, Utah deserves to be National Champion.
No, greed and conspiracy to exclude non-BCS teams from the pot of gold is NOT why they aren't in the title game.
Clearly, the painstakingly obvious reason must have been beyond the sleepy eyed view of the lethargic minded Reilly.
Utah has a Negro QB.
And we will let Reilly take us out(celbratory background music)
Until all these people do the right thing, I'll be celebrating with the true national champions — the undefeated, untied Utah Utes. (Our new slogan: Utahk about a team!)
Lemonades for everybody!
