Tonedeaf Jams. After working 24/7 (24 hours a week, 7 months a year) for the last four and a half years to gin up fear and loathing of the Middle East, is Shrub really so surprised that outsourcing control of U.S. ports to the UAE would backfire because of--you guessed it-- fear and loathing of the Middle East? Well, yeah, probably so given how well their "Trust us, we'll protect you, don't you worry your pretty little head about nothing" approach has gone for Bushco.

I'm a little put off by all the xenophobic rhetoric being tossed around. But I don't think it's the best idea ever. And I think if someone wants to make a real point about security here, it should be focused on the fact that only 5 to 7 percent of the cargo coming into our ports is actually inspected.

This and this don't help Bush's "fair play for good people" sell.

Whatever. You don't care about this. You just want more video of another really fat cat.
