HERE'S A SMILE (AT LEAST FOR ME)
Los Angeles Restaurant Closed for Filth - Guess what Hizzoner the Mayor Owns It.
Right wing Los Angeles Mayor Richard Riordan looked like an idiot when his own restaurant " The Original Pantry" diner was shut down
in the heart of downtown LA for nearly 40 code violations -- mostly to do with filth.
I know the place. 20 years ago I was dragged there for lunch with a gaggle of City Hall groupies who said it was the "in" place to eat a
What is turned out to be was a squalid filthy eatery, worse than any soup kitchen, where one was tempted to retch from the stench of
rodent droppings and dungy personnel and patrons alike.
Noelia Rodriguez, token spokeswoman for Riordan who actually eats breakfast in the diner weekly and must have known what a sty it
was , said he was "extremely disappointed'' by the closure. If you plan to date her, think again.
Health inspectors gave the diner a score of 55 out of a possible 100.
Then magically the diner reopened Thursday in time to serve Thanksgiving dinner.
Can you imagine for whom?

SPEAKING OF SADDAM . . .HERE IS THE U.S. LAW ON ASSASSINATION
"Prohibition on Assassination. No person employed by or acting on behalf of the United States Government shall engage in, or conspire
to engage in, assassination."
Executive Order 12333, issued December. 4, 1981, by President Ronald Reagan, continuing the policy of his predecessors Ford and
Carter. Neither Bush nor Clinton has rescinded it.

THE UNBELIEVABLY IRRESPONSIBLE PRESS AT WORK
Newsweek, November. 17: "Take him down." (next to a photo of Hussein and a downward-plunging arrow)
A real "little" rag.
Thomas Friedman, foreign affairs columnist, New York Times, November. 6: "Saddam Hussein is the reason God created cruise missiles. ...So if and when Saddam pushes beyond the brink, and we get that one good shot, let's make sure it's a head shot."
Friedman, who looks like he'd pee in his pants if a Puerto Rican couple was strolling behind him on a busy New York sidewalk is a joke and this statement should end his career as a serious journalist. It won't.
George Stephanopolous, former Clintonite and current ABC News analyst, on ABC'S "This Week," November. 9: "This is probably one of those rare cases where assassination is the more moral course...we should kill him."
Stephanopolous, disappointment extraordinairre, would be better off blow drying his hair less frequently and thinking more frequently before opening his mouth. He must make the President wince.
Sam "Dr. Strangelove" Donaldson, co-host of ABC's "This Week," November. 9: We should kill Saddam "under cover of law....
We can do business with his successor."
Donaldson? Well what can you say about him but that he's the epitome of the Peter Principal, rising to the top of a pile of sewage.
Bill Kristol, ABC News analyst, for ABC's "This Week" November. 9: "It sounds good to me."
Kristol was a disappointment, I thought he had more brains, and guts. 'Should've known better.
Cokie Roberts, co-host of ABC's "This Week," November. 9: "Well, now that we've come out for murder on this broadcast, let us
move on to fast-track..."
The more I see her arrogance and listen to her poppycock the more I'm reminded that she's a pretty prep girl from a wealthy political family and who's where she is for those reasons. At least here, she's making some sense.
Jonathan Alter, Newsweek, November. 17: "It won't be easy to take him out. ...But we need to try, because the only language Saddam has ever understood is force."
Fat Boy Priss Alter ought to volunteer to "take him out" himself-- could you just see that?
Newsweek, December. 1: "Why We Should Kill Saddam."
I don't know why - maybe it's a "moral" imperative?
TUCKER CARLSON UPDATE
From The New York Post . . .
Drinks "accidentally" flew at the American Spectator's annual dinner Wednesday night when two enemies in the right-wing camp went
on the warpath. Guests at the magazine-sponsored dinner - held at the Sheraton Washington Hotel and featuring such headliners as
Robert Bork and Rush Limbaugh - say the Weekly Standard's Tucker Carlson opened the waterworks by pouring a drink on Grover
Norquist of Americans for Tax Reform. Carlson recently attacked Norquist in a New Republic story, leading Norquist to hit back with a
nasty retaliatory letter. With the bad blood still boiling, Carlson walked onto the hotel's stage toward evening's end as guests were
mingling in the thinned-out crowd. Positioned above and behind unknowing Norquist, who was on ground level chatting with guests,
Carlson "accidentally let his Bloody Mary pour out of his glass on top of Norquist," said one source. Added another, "The celery stuck
behind Grover's ear, making him look like a conservative Carmen Miranda." After a half-hearted apology, Carlson left.
But our spies say soon Norquist's loyal colleague, Audrey Mullen, tracked Carlson to the Sheraton's bar where "she confronted him and he explained again that it was an accident," said one witness. "So Audrey said, "Well maybe this is an accident, too,' and threw her full
glass of wine in his face. People jumped between them, as Tucker told her, "I would never hit a woman.'" Carlson had no comment.
Norquist says Carlson's stage trick was no accident: "Right after it happened, a crewman from "60 Minutes' told everyone, "You should
know, he did it on purpose.' If you're going to pull a stunt like that and lie about it, you better not do it in front of a "60 Minutes' crew
Tucker was nowhere to be seen on pundit television this week. - with thanks to Dr. Gonzo

A Word from Eliot Janeway
"JK, a client, a friend, and one of the keenest minds in American politics, told me one afternoon: 'A good place to begin thinking critically about American and Western European democraciesis to ask yourself: What kind of man or woman would choose to run for public office? Think about that.' - I did."
