Given that today is Loyalty Day, a day where all good Americans should redouble their efforts to thwart the vile traitor Emmanuel Goldstein, I suppose I should crawl off my sickbed and post some things.

First, the Abu Ghraib story. Remember that battle for the hearts and minds of Iraqis? We lost. This isn't just going to feed the resistance in Iraq. Every day -- every hour -- that passes without decisive and public justice being meted out takes us one hour closer to the US having no role in Iraq going forward whatsoever. Which I'm not saying is a bad thing, in the long run, but this was not the way it should have happened. Of course, you could say about the whole war.

Meanwhile, the dominos in the Middle East are starting to teeter.
