So, I’m on a blogging break, but I can’t help but say I told you so!
On September 28, 2008, Black Thought wrote, and I quote (myself):
Ever noticed all you ever heard was Palin saying “Bristol and the young man she will marry.” You never heard the “young man” say he was going to get married.
He doesn’t want to, and he won’t if McCain-Palin loses.
If he did, he would have a while ago.
Of course, he might just do it if they win. The White House is a lot more fun than Alaska.
Just a prediction (link)
Its sometimes just so nice to be so right.
And I’m back to my blogging break, so satisfied.
This is the guy who used to run the CIA. Awesome.
The Atlantic‘s Jeffrey Goldberg offers an interesting excerpt from “A World Of Trouble,” a forthcoming book by Patrick Tyler on the White House and the Middle East. In this scene, CIA director George Tenet, drunk on scotch at Saudi Prince Bandar’s pool, rants about Bush administration “Jews” who are “setting me up” to take the fall for the false WMD claims.

Powell on Palin:
Gov. Palin, to some extent, pushed the party more to the right, and I think she had something of a polarizing effect when she talked about how small town values are good. Well, most of us don’t live in small towns. And I was raised in the South Bronx, and there’s nothing wrong with my value system from the South Bronx.
And when they came to Virginia and said the southern part of Virginia is good and the northern part of Virginia is bad. The only problem with that is there are more votes in the northern part of Virginia than there are in the southern part of Virginia, so that doesn’t work. (link)
If I can make myself forget about the Iraq war for a moment, you gotta like this guy.
