Initial reviews not withstanding I certainly don’t want to skip the new 4th Doctor Audios:

Well lucky for US Based Dr. Who fans. Mike’s comics has an announcement to make:

As stated on our BBC Doctor Who Audio webpage, there is a new licensed source to the US market for BBC Doctor Who & Blake’s 7 audios, and we have negotiated preferred terms for these audios.

On the page all of the Hornet’s Nest episodes are available at only $9.99 each.
hornet's nest the stuff of nightmares
That is a better deal than any currently on eBay. They also offer a boxed/slipcased set and if THAT isn’t enough they offer free shipping on cd’s orders over $60 sent by media mail!

What more can anyone ask?

The sad thing is they announced this 10 days ago! See what getting tied up with the blogwars does? It keeps you from important things.

April 4, 1865:

One black man, overcome by emotion, dropped to his knees, prompting the president to conduct a curbside colloquium on the meaning of emancipation. “Don’t kneel to me,” said the president. “That is not right. You must kneel to God only, and thank Him for the liberty you will enjoy hereafter.”

September 2009:

We would be happy if Obama could stay forever as the president of America,” Muammar al-Gaddafi

No Complaining now, otherwise you are an enemy of the revolution against equal pay for equal work.

Update: Michael Graham Nails it:

Seriously, my Lefty friends—do you not understand how CREEPY this is to normal people?

Yes they do, that’s guys like media matters are paid to fight back but don’t link the video.

It’s why the school is more outraged over the video than about the action.

Update: I see youtube has decided to hide it. I would remind people of this verse:

You have done this deed in secret, but I will bring it about in the presence of all Israel, and with the sun looking down. 2 Samuel 12:12

Wake up your Gods it’s going to be a bumpy ride.

What do I expect from the president’s statement coming up any second? I expect him to Chanel the 4th doctor in City of Death To Wit:

4th Doctor: “If you do that one more time, Duggan, I’m going to take very, very severe measures.”

Duggan: “Yeah, like what?”

4th Doctor: “Er… I’m going to ask you not to.”

The Doctor and Duggan, in “City of Death”

Let’s see if I’m right but I have to scoot in 25-35 min so lets hope he talks before then.

MSNBC: 8:37 a.m. at moments like this Republicans wish Hillery Clinton had won. Hey Mr. Beck how’s that Obama is better than McCain bit going?

8:39 a.m.: Halperin: Obama is a natural multilateralist. He doesn’t want to be the leader.

BTW why am I watching this on MSNBC? #1 Morning Joe, #2 Mika is a handsome and fair woman, #3 Greater chance of absolutely comic nonsense to quote.

8:43 a.m. It starts, Gorden Brown got his meeting now didn’t he?

8:44 a.m. “We expect the IAEA to investigate”, That’ll put the fear of God in ’em

8:45 a.m. “Iran is breaking rules that all nations must follow” Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is shaking in his boots.

8:47 a.m. “Iran must be prepared to co-operate with the IAEA” Or what?

8:48 a.m. That’s Obama’s plan to say this while Ahmadinejad is drinking so he will choke to death!

8:49 a.m. France expects a “rigorous investigation”. Talk about high expectations “everything is on the table” including Sanctions! THE HORROR!

8:50 a.m. Sanctions in December! That’ll learn em!

8:51 a.m. Brown: “We are prepared to implement sanctions.” oh brother.

Shades of Life of Brian:

Judith: They’ve arrested Brian!
All: What? What?
Judith: They dragged him off! They’re gonna crucify him!
Reg: Right! This calls for immediate discussion!
Judith: What?
Sibling: Immediate!
Sibling II: Right!
Loretta: New motion?
Reg: Completely new motion! Uh, that, uh, that there be, uh, immediate action…
Francis: …uh, once the vote has been taken.
Reg: Well, obviously once the vote has been taken resolution the oh —- resolution!
Judith: Reg, let’s go now, please!
Reg: Right, right!In the – in the light of fresh information from sibling Judith…
Loretta: Ehm…not so fast, Reg.
Judith: Reg, for God’s sake! It’s perfectly simple! All you’ve gotta do is to go out of that door now and try to stop the
Romans nailing him up! It’s happening, Reg! Something’s actually happening, Reg! Can’t you understand? Oooh!
Door: [Sound of Closing]
Reg: Yeah, hello. Another little ego trip from the feminists…
Rogers: Hrm.
Loretta: What?
Francis: [Whistle]
Reg: Oh, sorry, Loretta. Uh, read that back, would, you?

Warning Brief nudity totally non rule 5 at the .50-1:10 This stuff starts at 8:59

MSNBC what did we learn:

8:59 a.m. Mika called it a very strong message that’ll show em!

I think they are at stage 3 of the foreign office method. Sir Humphrey would be proud!

Hotair headlines reacts, gateway pundit posts.

My reaction: Statement of common principles #12

12. Israel should not be expected to risk another Shoah for the sake of the national interest of any other country.

If the president simply said that it would have a greater deterrent on Iran than anything the three stooges said this morning.

Update: John Miller makes a good point:

Remember the central rationale of Obama’s decision to cancel the missile-defense sites in the Czech Republic and Poland?

I should have brought it up first, but I’m too excited.

Update 2: Yup Beck is wrong about McCain:

Claude Rains would be “shocked” to learn the Iranians have an undisclosed nuclear enrichment site…

Wars come first and McCain gets it. Watch out John, Captain Ed might sue.

Update in detail at Hotair:

As for Russia, they still see Iran as critical to their economic health, so don’t expect much from Moscow. Earlier this week, they sounded fatalistic about new sanctions, and some wondered if Obama hadn’t worked out some quid pro quo based on the shift on missile defense in eastern Europe. Instead, it looks as though Obama may have shared this intel with Russia, which is probably how Iran found out about it.

Hey we don’t have to worry, didn’t the president take care of Nukes yesterday at the Security council?

Update 3: Cripes even Talk Left is worried.

Update 4: Firedoglake reports it. Check out the comments there, WARNING: Be sure you are not drinking while you do so.

Update 5: Tell me how this parody is less accurate than what Iran has actually said?

Dear suckers esteemed inspectors of the IAEA,

Ok I see the problem, “Suckers” is crossed out.

From the archives of Cox and Forkum First 2006:

And a second one that although it has a different person it just remove the word “Communist” and substitute “Islamic” and it will give the same meaning:

This lesson applies to any dictator.  Via Cox and Forkum BUY THEIR BOOKS!

Check out their Archives, the sad thing is their cartoons on Iran almost all could have been drawn today!

And did I mention BUY THEIR BOOKS! I review one of them here.
