George HW Bush

If, during this time of flowery praise of George HW Bush, you're having a hard time remembering who he really was, listen to Jeremy Scahill's Intercepted podcast today.

...but hey, do what you will anyway.


Just walked by a TV with the funeral on - pretty sure it wasn't Fox - and one of the narrators said of the congregated presidents on the front row: This is what makes this country so unique.  No other country has all their heads of state gather together in moments like this.

What a stupid thing to say.  Just because their state funerals and events aren't televised on our TVs doesn't mean they don't do it.  The hagiography and American exceptionalism is laughable these days.
