Pucker up for a big wet kiss from our pals

The poster in the back of the White House with "ISLAM WILL DOMINATE" is a nice touch too. Oh yeah, al-Reuters tells us that this is "supporters of Lebanon" protesting outside the Israeli consulate in New York. Golly, you could have fooled me! I would have said it It looks more like the usual Islamic terrorist fanboys.

Can't teach an old hag new tricks

The things you can find on Google Earth

I don't have a lot of time for looking for oddities from space via Google Earth, but apparently they are some folks that do and look what they found in China:
Those among you who like your skies darkened by black helicopters are invited to mosey on down to the remote Chinese village of Huangyangtan which hosts what must be the strangest military installation ever spotted by the Google Earth Community.
Zooming in for a closer look, we have what appears to be a 900x700m (about 3000 x 2300 feet - ed.) scale model of a mountainous landscape complete with lakes, valleys and snow-capped peaks
Don't, however, spend the next three days scouring the world's mountain ranges trying to find a geographical match: the legwork has already been done for you by this enterprising Google Earth Community member who correctly identified the model as representing this disputed area on the Chinese/Indian border.
Click through for the pictures and theories about why the Chicoms would go to all the trouble to build this. It may really be a pilot training aid, but my theory is they're building a really big model train layout for Jung Il Kim.

Now that's cool

From across the pond comes Turn off the aircon and take off your clothes:
As UK temperatures head for a possible all-time high, British unions have called for UK companies to adopt a more relaxed dress code, the BBC reports.
Ecoweenie whining skipped. You'd think these prats had never heard of a hot summer day.
Barber cited the example of Japanese prime minister Junichiro Koizumi, who has "urged his country not to wear jackets and ties during summer" - for Japanese business a concession pretty well equivalent to Brit managers suggesting employees sit naked in the office drinking beer and smoking marijuana.
Woohoo! I'd attach more credence to the analogy though, if it didn't appear that the average British office was..., er, rather relaxed:
It's official: the UK office is a steaming cauldron of sexual desire in which colleagues exchange flirtatious emails and smouldering looks as a ritual prelude to forming the work-based beast with two backs.

That, at least, is according to research by the Aziz Corporation, which concludes that not only have one third of Brits had a "fling" with a fellow worker, but that the majority of managers consider the practice "perfectly acceptable".

Indeed, 83 per cent of big cheeses polled presented no objections to inter-staff rumpy-pumpy, and 53 per cent said they'd indulge in a bit themselves - even if it were with a junior colleague.
Some cautions about such behavior follow ending up with:
Which should act as a warning to the 13 per cent of Brits who claimed they'd enjoyed "intimate relations" in the workplace: mission-critical purchasing decisions should be made after extensive market analysis and financial projections; not after a quick shag under the desk with someone from accounts.
Sounds like they need to set the AC on freezing.

Today's Hoot!

Michelle Malkin has a laugh with Gain Weight on the Moonbat Fast Plan. I really like the contribution from that clapped out media whore, Cindy Sheehan:
I find traveling out of the country very challenging being on a fast. When I was on a layover in Madrid on my way to Venice, Italy yesterday, the closest thing I could find to a smoothie to get a little protein was a coffee with vanilla ice cream in it.
Ole Cindy gives room temperature IQs a bad name.

Dreams of a clown

The Blogger picture posting service has been casters up for the last few days, so you'll just have to imagine Pittsburgh Tribune-Review news hen Robin Acton giving a Lewinsky to Crooked John Murtha while penning the amazing Murtha commands respect. Best lines:
Although he kept a low profile for years with regard to international matters, "Jack" Murtha has extensive knowledge of global affairs.
He can order at a Chinese restaurant?
He's traveled on behalf of the United States at the request of several presidents to dozens of locations around the world, including Vietnam, Cambodia, Russia, Afghanistan, Kosovo, Somalia, Kuwait, Korea and Columbia.
(Note to Robin, it's Colombia, dear.) Translation: Murtha knows how to take a junket with the best of them. Not to mention his ability to negotiate with Arab sheikhs with suitcases full of cash.
"It's a compliment to the people of his district, that with all the options he has, he chooses them," said U.S. Rep. Nancy Pelosi, the House Democratic leader.
Nancy undoubtedly blesses Botox so she can say stuff like that with a straight face.
And while others say he's a natural for Secretary of Defense because of his expertise in military and defense issues, Murtha insists he "would never be interested in a Cabinet position or any non-elected position."
One wonders whether these "others" are allowed by the staff to handle any sharp objects.
No, he wants to be the House majority leader.
And have the loot deposited in a few local banks.

All the usual cockroaches

Spirits Are High in Syria's Capital as Leaders Openly Show Support for Hezbollah

Iran warns Israel of "unimaginable losses" if Syria attacked

Palestinians eager to jump into fray

And don't forget the mini-roach - Hugo Chavez: US causing ME 'Holocaust'

But the lineup of brainless vermin wouldn't be complete without the NY Times' editorial board who took time out from their lesiurely weekends at the Cape (or on Fire Island according to taste) to excrete The Real Agenda:
It is only now, nearly five years after Sept. 11, that the full picture of the Bush administration’s response to the terror attacks is becoming clear. Much of it, we can see now, had far less to do with fighting Osama bin Laden than with expanding presidential power.

Today's Hoot!

Mark Steyn, of course:
Aside from Larry's closing tribute to Red Buttons, I've never heard more rubbish in a single hour since . . . well, come to think of it, since the last time I saw "Larry King Live." But at least that was a special with Heather Mills (Paul McCartney's missus), with which subject Larry seemed rather more engaged, at least after Lady McCartney plunked her artificial leg up on the desk and invited Larry to feel its lifelike texture, which is more than one can say for Larry these days. But the point is that Larry and his Friars' Club Roast approach to geopolitics is about as irrelevant to what's going on there as could be devised, short of Sen. Hagel proposing Heather Mills as his Special Envoy, which may be just what Hamas and Hezbollah deserve.
