The Saturday Cartoons
Oh, boy, are you all in for a good time with today's animation. Our friend Nick Anderson at the Houston Chronicle does some unique mixing of cartoon animation and still pictures and comes up with a winner that's both poignant and funny. Have a look:
Our favorite exposer of national security assets is talking about retirement. But will Jon Stewart's favorite Douchebag of Liberty take the plunge?
The NRA seems to think Ayman al-Zwahiri should be able to buy an AK at a gun show near you. He has rights after all! So, um, do you agree with these nutjobs?

There's a lot of great Progressive blogs out there and here's some highlights from the last week from the ones I enjoy reading:
- Sean-Paul Kelley at The Agonist looks at the arrogance of George W. Bush, the tepid response from Congress and how it all lines up with ancient Rome.
- Melissa McEwan writes at Shakesville about what an atheist isn't.
