Welcome to America, 2007

So, how did everyone else celebrate Loyalty Day yesterday?

What? You didn't reaffirm your loyalty to this great nation yesterday? That means you haven't been keeping up with your presidential proclamations, have you, Citizen? That's almost... disloyal of you. Maybe you need to be sent to one of our secret prisons overseas a re-education center for torture re-education about the president's glorious War on Terror.

Monday night, got a few people together to watch Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters, which was exactly what I expected. If you like the show, you'll love the movie, as it's just a really long episode. If you don't like the show, I don't know why you're watching the movie. The guest voices were a surprise treat (Bruce Campbell!) I'm also a huge fan of Time Lincoln.

Because Snowden sucks, we didn't get a single new trailer. In fact, a couple of the trailers were for movies that were already out. No love.

"The war will soon cost more than $500 billion. That's about ten times more than the Bush administration anticipated before the war started four years ago, and no one can predict how high the tab will go."

Good read: Dick Polman has the quotes from the beginning of the Iraq invasion.

"This is a dishonest measure, dishonestly presented, and Congress should reject it. Before making any new laws, Congress has to get to the truth about Mr. Bush's spying program."

Vox populi: Chris Cillizza parses the polls about the Iraq funding debate.
