They found Roland The Headless Thompson Gunner's Head!

Apparently, he helped Michele Bachmann win the Republican Straw Poll in Ames, Iowa.

This is what is affectionately known as "Pallin' Around With Terrorists".

Not To Be Confused With The Lobster Award

I'm not much into some of the chain mail blog memes, but it appears as though I've won an award, the much coveted Liebster Award. I've been lacking lately in my linkage to other blogs, so I guess this is a good enough excuse to post some links.

“Liebster,” in the German and Spanish vernacular, means “beloved”…According to the Liebster Blog Award guidelines, I’m to link to the blog what gave me the award and then pass it on to five equally worthy candidates.

So, here are some cool blogs, check them out if you haven't done so yet!

The Torture Never Stops

Today's Democracy Now show has a story and interview with Donald Vance, an American veteran and contract worker in Iraq. He and Nathan Ertel were detained and tortured by the American military for 3 months after it became known that they were working with the FBI to uncover illegal activities by their employer, Shield Group Security, during the war. They are suing Rumsfeld, and a Federal Appeals Court has granted the right for the trial to proceed.

In rejecting the request to dismiss the case, the court ruled on Monday the plaintiffs had sufficiently alleged that Mr Rumsfeld had played a personal role in authorising the harsh treatment to which they had been subjected while in US custody.
