Hey Ho The Brain Is Dead

We're actually referring the the Penny Dreadful, here, which thinks that unrestrained gloating would be the best way to react to the death of Yasser Arafat. We don't have the time or the constitution to go into the details of Arafat's complicity in recent violence or the sincerity of his acceptance of the Israeli state.

But how retarded to you have to be to say "he won't be missed" to the most prominent Arab to accept Israel's existence? Do they have a line on a horde of progressive social democrats holed up at Ramallah waiting to be unleashed? Maybe Murdoch's minions think that it'll just take one more bout of wishful thinking to take us to the neoconservative utopia for which they yearn.

Still, what the hell, Yasser Arafat, the man Clive James once named man and woman of the year, rest in peace. You probably need it.
