...I'm okay with being REALITY-based.

So things are going well on the international relations front...

SEOUL (Reuters) - North Korea hurled invective at President Bush for a second day Tuesday, calling him a political idiot and human trash, and said six-party talks on Pyongyang's nuclear ambitions appeared doomed.

A day earlier, a Foreign Ministry spokesman for the isolated communist state described Bush as a tyrannical imbecile who put Adolf Hitler in the shade and said Pyongyang could see no justification to negotiate with his administration.

Six-party working-level talks on the communist North's nuclear weapons ambitions had been planned for August but have yet to materialize.

Meanwhile, Bush declared from his vacation yesterday progress was being made in Iraq. I guess "progress" means almost 3 Coalition deaths a day this month.

What's more despicable is that the press continues to think that repeating smears and lies about things that happened 35 years ago is more important than informing the American public about what is really going on.

Of course, if the American public really wanted to know what was really going on, they'd demand it. And they don't do that. Which is the shame of our society.
