AFTER-WORD


  • Parliament in the Ukrain has attempted to boot the government of Kremlin-backed Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovich, but he calls the move illegal: "I will never recognize this decision ... they approved the decision in political terms. But it is against the law, it is against the constitution."

    If they hold another election, Yanukovich is gong to get his clock cleaned, and opposition candidate Viktor Yushchenko – flailing self-righteously in orange – is likely to win, unless Russia rolls in the tanks or the Ukraine splits. The latter is more likely but would generate hostilities between Moscow and Brussels. Their Uncle Sam will have to separate them before they come to blows.



  • Speaking of governments which don't play well with people, Canada and Demark are pulling each other's hair over shrimp.



  • Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano is pushing her State's junior Senator John Kyl to be the next Secretary of Homeland Security. She'd select his Senate replacement, who would be a Republican but likely less conservative than is Kyl. Also, as the #2 Republican in seniority on Senate Judiciary, he could be needed in that committee to keep chairman Snarlin' Arlen in line.




  • The State Department has backed Norm Coleman's investigation of the United Nations regarding Oil-for-Food.

    As I wrote earlier, I hope this leads to a further investigation by a joint committee leading to our withdrawal from the United Nations.



  • I'm listening to Georg Muffat, some suites and concertos. This is baroque!

    And 't is, indeed, the season.

    Napolitano would appoint a Democrat. She is a liberal Democrat who should have never been elected in this state.
