Snapshot by Fred Reed

FOE_SideBar_Column_r1_c1Here is a real beaut from Mr. Fred Reed, expatriate journalist and contrarian.  His style can be an acquired taste. Sometimes a bad taste. He can be by turns irreverent, hilarious, scandalous and rude. Like a dead fish in the moonlight, he can both stink and shine. However, when the meds are adjusted just right he can be well worth the read. Here is a sample of  his latest offerings:

Headline: “Senator Lautenberg: US Won’t Be Upset if Israel Strikes Iran.” Well, Senator Lautenberg, presumably an Arab, won’t be upset. But with which Americans has he consulted? Me? I guess I missed his call.

Real answer: He has consulted with Congress, 535 commoditized temple monkeys pawing through the ruins of America in search of bribes. The bicameral whorehouse on Capitol Hill works like a vending machine. You put coins in the slot, select your law, and the desired legislation slides out.
