[I need a prettier style for blockquotes]
I think it's nice that Charles and Camilla got married and I think she looked lovely and graceful and that he genuinely looked happy. Man, the princes are hot! Yowza!

If you haven't had a chance to see this year's Pulitzer Prize-winning photos, do yourself a favor and do so. I was moved to slight, repressable tears at work. There are some harrowing things going on in the world right now, and that fact that some in the Ridiculous Right would even insinuate -- or flat out say -- that the AP was in cahoots with insurgents to get the more shocking photos is sickening, sad, and ignorant (hey, there's a new GOP slogan!). I can't even imagine the depths of courage it takes to willingly get out in the middle of a fucking war with a camera and a pack of heavy lenses to capture images of the barbarity occurring more than we will ever truly know. Not to mention the depths of courage it takes just to be an Iraqi at this point.

Anyway, this is amusing. Powerline has tallied the imagery, and the results make them grumpy!

• U.S. troops injured, dead, or mourning: 3
• Iraqi civillians harmed by the war: 7
• Insurgents looking determined or deadly: 3
• US troops looking overwhelmed or uncertain: 3
• US troops controlling Iraqi prisoners: 2
• Iraqis celebrating attacks on US forces: 2

• US forces looking heroic: 0
• US forces helping Iraqi civillians: 0
• Iraqis expressing support for US forces: 0
• Iraqis expressing opposition to insurgents: 0

Oh my God -- stop the fucking presses! This drawn-out, messy war is producing negative, bloody photographs of mayhem, anger, dirt, bile, body parts, hatred, uncertainty, and pain? That's unacceptable and Unuhmurican (a new word I'm coining right now). Everyone knows that everywhere our American Humvees roll instantly turns to gold and grass and Starbucks and rainbows. Er ... maybe not rainbows, if you get my drift. That's a little too fruity. Right, Joey?

I love the word unhumerican. I'll have to use it today in some fashion.
