1. Digby: Are We There Yet? (the War in Iran has already started; Bush is "a megalomaniac child in the hands of manipulative men")
2. In a world on the brink of implosion, where are the GOP's priorities?
Flag burning, gay marriage and abortion, that's where. Billmon responds: "Thank God the GOP is on top of things, because if we can't get this nationwide epidemic of flag burning under control, we could be in some real trouble."
3. Former Marine Captain Chris Sheppard: "I will never trust any of them again."
4. Morford: The Bible's All Wrong. Again.
5. Salon: What Rumsfeld Knew (All 'bad apples' need a leader, don't they?)

ON THIS DAY: In 1935, the Rev. Sun Myung Moon had a vision of Jesus Christ. The Big JC told Rev. Moon to take up the mantle and complete the mission he started almost 2000 years prior. In 1954, Moon proclaimed himself the messiah and formed his Unification Church. For the next half-century, Rev. Moon would be driven out of Korea, arrive in the U.S., achieve cult-leader status, build a business empire, get imprisoned for tax fraud, be embraced by the Reaganites, and eventually help propel George W. Bush to the presidency. In 2004, the current US Congress would honor Rev. Moon in a 'coronation ceremony.' Also on this date, in 1937, Daffy Duck made his theatrical debut. Coincidence?
