So this is what became of The New Republic: Headline: Rolling Stone’s Rape Article Failed Because It Used Rightwing Tactics to Make a Leftist Point.¨

I’m not making this up.  That is exactly what the headline says (see below).  I know.  It’s sad.  But the comments make it all worth it…

UH-OH: ‘American Sniper’ Effect: Rival Benghazi Movies Aim to Capitalize on War-Film Trend.

I must confess I find it amusing to see knee-jerk commenters around the web go into fits at the mere mention of this movie.  Not that it’s a movie made to please neo-conservatives, (it’s a Warner Bros. release, for crying out loud).  Haven’t seen it yet, anyway.  But my general take on Hollywood war movies past and present is that they are more about sacrifice than about glorifying war.

At any rate, don’t expect these Benghazi movies to put Hillary or Obama on the spot, either.  But at least they’ll keep the tragic events in the popular mind for a time to come, maybe into 2016.

Rachel Maddow, Call Your Office: After ISIS execution, angry King Abdullah quotes Clint Eastwood to U.S. lawmakers.

So the brilliant, old man who was dismissed as a virtual Alzheimer’s patient for daring to compare POTUS to an empty chair is not only the hot director of the moment, but an example of strength to be imitated by a non-radical Muslim leader. Funny how that happens…

I’m sorry to say it, but this is starting to smell of a World War.  If only the president had left all those troops in Iraq instead of removing them to…why did he do that, again?  I guess he needed them so that he could keep expanding our military presence in Africa and Afghanistan.

Symbolism should be limited to novels, films, poetry and the like.  Better to keep it out of military decisions…
