First we destabilized his government, then he was killed and then we invaded …

I have a few corrections -- or clarifications -- some errata and a plug or two. I'm clearin' the desk. I'll get to destabilizing governments and killing and invading and all that in a jiffy.

First, in this post, I wrote that the ex-gay "exodus movement" holds "that homosexuality is a cureable disease, like psoriasis or athlete's foot." A reader informs me that psoriasis, while it is a heartache, is not curable after all.

I suppose I could look these things up, but that seems like a lot of work.

I see now that I also misspelled "curable."

Speaking of that mustachioed moron John Bolton, as I did here, take 10 seconds and watch this.

I'll wait.

OK, onto … Karl Rove.
