Y'all have a point. Isn't there anything more substantial out there than quick op-eds? Sample: feature on Dr. Rihab Taha, who heads Iraq's germ warfare program.

4. Aliens are obsessed with technology. They spend hours chatting on cell phones and sending e-mails. But they're not conversing with people -- they're actually transmitting data they've accumulated back to their home worlds.

5. Aliens have strange bodily proportions. The newest breeds of aliens attempt to imitate human appearance -- but they never quite get it right. They are like exaggerated ideas of human perfection. Their stomachs are too flat, their chests too big, their faces wrinkle-free.

6. Aliens have strange diets. Aliens may not be able to digest most human foods. Because of this, they are limited in the types of foods they can eat, and they may become vegetarians. Watch out for people who eat a lot of melons -- that's an alien favorite.

7. Aliens dance in inhuman ways. Most alien species have a completely different physiology than ours. They have the ability to move their bodies to music in a way no ordinary human can, and this results in a dancing style that is quite breathtaking.

My favorite "I Saw You" / missed connections ad from the Washington CityPaper in ages:

I SAW YOU reading Sean Hannity's book on United Flight 1709 from Dulles to New Orleans on Christmas Eve. I was the young lady, mid-20's, with long brown hair wearing red and green. I regret deeply not having introduced myself. I too am Hannitized & ISO of like-minded companionship in a city of liberals. If you're ISO a feminine (vs. feminist) companion, I'd love a second chance to talk politics with you & maybe more. 41940 (exp. 1/30)

Seriously - it's near the bottom of the page.

Hannitized for your protection.

Seriously, I know someone just like that. She drives a Lexus and listens to way, way, too much Cher.

Listens for sound of Cher rolling over in her grave.

Well I of course agree that Newsmax has zero credibility, I find it interesting that no one here is calling GriffX's post which links to such esteemed journalists as the "Buffalo Beast," who, among other things, call the one black guy in the article a "corpulent Oreo".

Tierney: "I caught [the French representative] whispering to the Iraqis after the list had been briefed to us....There is additional information that I can't go into," the former UNSCOM inspector said.

Of course, we understand why you can't go into it. The entire "kill Iraqis" movement seems to have information that it can't share with us - particularly if our interpretation might somehow differ from the party line. Or maybe there is no information -- but I'd be the last to suggest that. In any event, we obviously can't wait for the U.N inspectors to gather any more information....there's no time for these inspections, I tell you. We've only had this problem with Iraq since Rumsfeld armed them (1980s), and since Bush the Elder left him in power at the end of Bush-Sadda-Mania One (early 1990s).

And whispering to the Iraqis. What more proof does anyone need? That's the level of "proof" that's apparently going to suffice for our genius President and his supporters to send troops into Iraq, so the terrible sin of whispering should suffice for castigating the French.

Ah, and Tierney says the Iraqi has nukes, but offers nothing to substantiate that claim. Tierney: "Certain things convinced me that they had proscribed items at this presidential site."

That's so nice. "Certain things." When testicular mass accumulates sufficient to actually tell us what those certain things are, all will be revealed. 'Course, by that time maybe a couple of hundred thousand Iraqis will be dead. But no matter. There's no time for actually verifying any of this stuff, you know.

We've got to strike now, before Saddam is able to maybe buy any noocular weapons from North Korea. See, here's the deal. We can bomb Iraqi noocular weapons. We can't bomb North Korean noocular weapons for some reason, so Saddam'll be safe or something if he gets any from North Korea. I think. So see, we gotta move on this.

oh I see, it is a troll since it dosn't fit your point of view....

Right. Perfect. You folks who constantly whine "troll" every time you read an article on MetaFilter with which you disagree, are now wrinkling up your noses while tasting your own medicine? The hypocrisy of a certain segment here on MetaFilter never fails to amuse.

I will agree that the other post had more substance... I was just pointing out that people jumped all over that thread, too.
The question was surely rhetorical, anyway.

Oh, the hypocrisy!

I certainly agree with you there. After months of virtually daily Bush/Ashcroft = evil posts, many from highly questionable sources, that we are supposed to consider worthy of intelligent discussion, a single post with a different perspective pops up, and it is extremely important that it's credibility be trashed - instead of the actual points in it being discussed. I laughed my ass off at this thread.

Whether the Bush/Ashcroft = evil posts are called out as trolls or not (and I'd agree some should have been) doesn't make NewsMax any less troll-ish. Of course, talk to me after I've been Hannitized (I have an appt. on the 5th) and I'm sure I'll be singing a new tune.

y2karl: Exactly.. I thought it was part of the process of Metafilter to discuss this stuff. I don't find anything in the article that points to anything about Aliens or Santa Clause.

This from a foaming-at-the-mouth-with-it Clinton hater of long long standing in defense of another rabid Clinton hater.

If 9/11 happened on Clinton's watch, he'd be hamstrung by the same little set of traitors who tried to run him out of office with their little coup d'etat by special investigator because they hate hated hated him so much back then.

Mad because some trash Bush here?

You Clinton haters poisoned the common well of political discourse first and now you complain because you're served a weaker cup of tea than what you poured so rabidly and freely a few years back and pour so still.

Pot meet kettle. The jokes in your head.
