shadow of a doubt
The seeds of doubt are running rampant these days.
People are doubting the veracity of Salaam Pax's claims to be who he says he is. I've not taken a stand either way and I probably won't. As the seventh grade math homework says, there are not enough facts to support an answer.
People are doubting that there are or ever have been weapons of mass destruction in Iraq. Of course, they are using that doubt as a soap box to declare the war unjust and false; nevermind the children freed from underground prisons or the uncovering of mass graves. I, for one, am doubting that most of the people declaring the war to be a scam care anything for anyone but themselves.
Andrea doubts that the flightrisk chick is for real. I tend to agree with Andrea on this one, and for some of the same reasons; one being that it doesn't speak well of the truth to be backed up by a guy known for evading the truth. That would be like Jayson Blair coming to your defense in a perjury trial.
I'm beginning to doubt that Scott Peterson killed his wife. The latest news -that Laci's body was mutilated - has all the earmarks of a deranged, jealous lover. But that could just be my 7am self talking.
I sincerely doubt that George Pataki will be on my Christmas list this year. In fact, I doubt that I wouldn't have the urge to kick him in the balls should I ever run into him. Same for Mike Bloomberg.
Of course, there's the usual doubts. I doubt there will ever be peace in the mideast, I doubt that we will ever find out what happened to Saddam, I doubt that the Red Sox are for real or the Mets will get any better, and I doubt that the dream I had last night about Mark Steyn writing OpEds for Command Post will ever come true.
One thing I don't doubt is that tomorrow will mark the event of the worst hangover ever, as tonight is my baby sister's bachelorette party, which will involve no strippers, but plenty of alcohol and a Spongebob layer cake.
[And I doubt that this man is who he says he is - I have it on good faith that he's really Helen Thomas]
