    Four things to sum up the week (from funny to normal but outrageous lies):

    Right-wing shill-of-the-week:

    That's right, it's Don King.

    By by Georgie. . .

    Look what people in the worlds largest democracy have to say about us and what may happen to us if we are lucky enough to visit India:

    ' "Americans should not venture anywhere near imambaras, mazaars or other places of religious importance. For if they do, the responsibility of their security would lie with the tourism department or themselves..." Shia cleric Maulana Kalbe Jawwad who issued this veiled threat before a 20,000 strong crowd in Lucknow says Americans or Britons are not welcome in holy Muslim shrines. "With anti-US sentiments running so high, anything can happen to the tourists. What if some individual decides to settle scores on his own? We can't do anything about that," Maulana Jawwad told Lucknow Times. "By closing our doors on US and UK nationals we are sending out a very strong message. We want these tourists to tell everybody back home that they were unwelcome in India because of their leaders who are killing innocent Muslims and and destroying our shrines," Jawwad reasons. "In fact, most of our imambaras are replicas of shrines in Iraq . How can the Americans bomb the original sites and visit their replicas! Where is the logic in that? The bottomline is that Americans should stay away from the imambaras and similar places, because we would be very uncomfortable with their presence," he adds. '

    Damn, time to cancel my trip to Delhi!

    Now for the failed marriage of Ahmed Chalibi and Mr. bush.

    Dialogue that took place last February on "Meet the Press:"

    Russert: If the Iraqis choose, however, an Islamic extremist regime, would you accept that, and would that be better for the United States than Saddam Hussein?

    President Bush: They're not going to develop that. And the reason I can say that is because I'm very aware of this basic law they're writing. They're not going to develop that because right here in the Oval Office I sat down with Mr. Pachachi and Chalabi and al-Hakim, people from different parts of the country that have made the firm commitment, that they want a constitution eventually written that recognizes minority rights and freedom of religion.

    Furthermore, in November Mr. bush says that he had a thirty minute "Good Talk" with Mr. Chalibi at Baghdad International during his surprise Thanksgiving Day visit. He even had time for a picture:

    But in a recent press conference, when asked about Mr. Chalibi the Dialogue was a little different:

    Q: Thank you, Mr. President. Mr. Chalabi is an Iraqi leader that's fallen out of favor within your administration. I'm wondering if you feel that he provided any false information, or are you particularly --

    THE PRESIDENT: Chalabi?

    Q: Yes, with Chalabi.

    THE PRESIDENT: My meetings with him were very brief. I mean, I think I met with him at the State of the Union and just kind of working through the rope line, and he might have come with a group of leaders. But I haven't had any extensive conversations with him.

    Q: I guess I'm asking, do you feel like he misled your administration, in terms of what the expectations were going to be going into Iraq?

    THE PRESIDENT: I don't remember anybody walking into my office saying, Chalabi says this is the way it's going to be in Iraq.

    There you have it!
