Holy Hyrax - American!

Congtratulations to Holy Hyrax on receiving his citizenship!! It only took him 23 years... He probably kept spelling his name wrong. But in all seriousness, congratulations. :)

While we're at it, a belated mazel tov to: Amishav on his wedding, Jewish Atheist on getting engaged, and I can't even remember half the rest of the celebrations from around the blogosphere.

And if you're looking for a good read, read Erachet's post on Israel and SoccerDad's post on Obama and foreign policy. Money quote:
If you had to do it over again, Moran asked, knowing what you know now, would you support the surge?

"No," Obama said. "These kinds of hypotheticals are very difficult. Hindsight is 20/20. But I think that what I am absolutely convinced of is at that time we had to change the political debate because the view of the Bush administration at that time was one that I just disagreed with and one that I continue to disagree with is to look narrowly at Iraq and not focus on these broader issues."


  1. Thank you, thank you.

    Now, which way to the welfare office?

  2. Mazal tov, Holy Hyrax!!! Now you can wear patriotic nail polish next July 4!

  3. Hey! Not nice to hate me! And come on, I bet red, white and blue nail polish would look excellent against your complexion ;)
