George Clooney and Darfur

Clooney Pleads With U.N. to Head Off Genocide in Sudan

George Clooney warned the United Nations on Thursday that millions would die in Darfur if the U.N. Security Council does not send in a peacekeeping force to replace departing African Union troops at the end of this month. “After Sept. 30, you won’t need the U.N.,” Clooney said. “You will simply need men with shovels and bleached white linen and headstones.”

    Tony Snow

    Snow Almost Doesn’t Bother Lying

    Asked whether Bush still thinks there was a relationship between Hussein and Al Qaeda honcho Al Zarqawi, White House spokesman Tony Snow nearly admitted the absence of such a relationship, but then said one existed because Zarqawi “operated” in Iraq. But as ThinkProgress points out, that’s like saying America had a “relationship” with the Unabomber because he was ?operating? in the United States.

    ‘Daily Show’ Digests Latest Bush Puzzler

    George Bush recently said “America is safer than it has been, but it’s not yet safe.”  Attempting to make sense of this seemingly contradictory statement in a post-9/11, post-“mission accomplished,” post-Katrina world, “The Daily Show” came up with this rationale: “George W. Bush is the right man to lead us in the era post whatever horrible calamity he leads us into next.”

    Keith Olbermann

    Olbermann to Bush at Ground Zero: ‘May This Country Forgive You’

    In perhaps his most powerful monologue ever, MSNBC host Keith Olbermann savagely harangued Bush for using 9/11 as a wedge to pit Americans against Americans. “Who has left this hole in the ground? We have not forgotten, Mr. President. You have. May this country forgive you.”

  • Highlighting this speech and last week’s “Have you no sense of decency?” monologue, The Nation called Olbermann “the best news anchor on television today.”
