Standpoint: on Obama, Iranian Missiles, Hunter S. Thompson

New posts up on my blog at STANDPOINT magazine on-line.

I write about Obama's Iraq dilemma in their newly inaugurated media blog "Lost Illusions" here.

About the Gonzo Photography of Hunter S. Thompson here.

About the faked Iranian missile photos here.

About a dossier of photos Ahmadinejad will allegedly present to the UN here.

Also, there been much talk about the difficulty of creating and delivering political jokes and satire about Barack Obama. I disagree. Here's one:

“A traveling salesman knocks on the door of a farmhouse, and much to his surprise, Barack Obama answers the door. The salesman says, ‘I was expecting the farmer’s daughter.’ Barack Obama replies, ‘She’s not here. The farm was foreclosed on because of subprime loans that are making a mockery of the American dream.’ ”

Maybe its' not so easy after all.
