Saudi Hypocrisy on Full Display

The Saudi government hates the Assad government in Syria because they are Sunni and he is Shia [err, oops. He's Alawite, of course, and I knew that], so they're demanding democratic elections in that country. But not their own, of course.

Worldnetdaily Goes All Worldnetdaily on Immigration

The Worldnetdaily has never quite so...Worldnetdailyish...than in this article about a decision by the Obama administration to make those who are fleeing violence in several countries in Latin America eligible to apply for refugee status before leaving their home countries, thus avoiding the huge problem of rape and extortion by smugglers in Mexico helping them get to the U.S. currently.
