Ali G

If you've ever seen Da Ali G Show, you've wondered how this fake rap star manages to get interviews with major public figures, who answer his bizarre questions with a straight face. How does he do it?

We truly left there thinking he was the stupidest person ever

Monkeyboy's Linkblog points us to a Slate article that tries to figure it out. Fascinating.

Of God and War

Do you really believe that there are fewer terrorists plotting against America today than there were before you began the invasion of Iraq?

Your version of Christianity supports and blesses preventive war. What relation is this to the Christianity preached by the pope and by mainstream Protestants who oppose preventive war?

Since you obviously did not anticipate the troubles in Iraq, what do you plan to do to the incompetent advisers who misled you and are responsible for the deaths of more than 1,000 American G.I.'s and 20,000 Iraqi civilians? Or do you not see an accountability problem? President John F. Kennedy fired the people who led him into the Bay of Pigs. Why do you not do likewise?
