Great line of the day 

Following his discussion of the attempt by Fox News and Insight Magazine to smear Barack Obama with the accusation that he attended a "madrasah" (which actually just means "school" in Arabic), Juan Cole says:
The real question is why foreign billionaire cultists own so much of America's media . . . This smear was brought to us by the media owned by the Reverend Moon (who did jail time for tax evasion) and by Rupert Murdoch (which picked it up shamelessly). Americans will never get back their purloined liberty until they stop letting the super-rich tell them what to think.
Emphasis mine.
