    the psychological hell these creeps put people through, but Taibbi's piece has got to be one of the funniest things I've ever read! I was heretofore unaware that handwriting analysis, and anal fissures were actual demons. I'm not even certain what an anal fissure is... unless we're talking butt cracks. But my Dad always said those were like opinions - everybody's got one.

    On a more serious note, Matt made one analogy in there that struck a chord with me because it's one of my favorite anecdotes from the last eight years.

    He mentions the "born again" experience of so many of our recent leaders - and specifically cites W's miraculuos conversion at the hands of Billy Graham.

    Back in 2004, specifically on an evening just days before the November elections, NBC's Brian Williams did an interview with Rev. Graham. I was among the , probably not small, number of people who was gobsmacked to hear Billy say that he somehow didn't remember this much-ballyhooed event from George's bio! If you recall, the story had been bandied about for five years at the time.

    Read the link (thankfully the story is still online!), and pay attention to the final paragraphs. My only question was - why didn't Rev. Graham say something earlier?

    Meddle not in the affairs of dragons... for thou art crunchy and good with ketchup.
