Anybody notice there's a war going on?

Apparently, while we were all snuggled away, waiting for Santa to arrive, Israel has invaded Gaza to rid the area of Hamas. Now I think Israel has every right to defend itself as it sees fit, and, after however many efforts to get the Palestinians to stop shooting rockets into Isreal (even after the voluntary evacuation of Isreali settlements in Gaza and the West Bank), it appears that Hamas will not stop its efforts to kill Israelis.

But that's beside the point of this post. The point is that the IDF now has a Youtube channel so the public, all over the world, can view certain military operations and evaluate Israel's tactics for itself. Of course, the IDF posts the videos, but it's an interesting use of the format, don't you think?

UPDATE: And, as is typical with all things Israel, Youtube is taking the IDF videos down, for some reason. Who do you think complained?

Top 5 uses of the word "Blagojevich"

From a facebook group I'm part of (these are mine):

5. "Go shave your balls, you dusty old Blagojevich!"
4. "Oh, my achin' Blagojevich....you got any ointment?"
3. "This Blagojevich tastes a bit off." "That's because it's mayonaisse."
2. "Two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions, on a sesame seed Blagojevich."
1. "Blagojevich me?!? Blagojevich YOU!!!"
