Mick Jagger uses "Neocon" in a Song.

The fact that Mick Jagger wrote a song about the war is somewhat interesting, but the fact that he used the term "neocon" is a very interesting.

JAGGER ROCKS BUSH, RICE: 'HOW COME YOU'RE SO WRONG, MY SWEET NEO-CON'

"You call yourself a Christian, I call you a hypocrite/ You call yourself a patriot. Well, I think your are full of sh*t!... How come you're so wrong, my sweet neo-con."

Ready to drop in the coming weeks, a new Bush-bashing tune from the ROLLING STONES: "Sweet Neo Con."

"It is direct," Mick Jagger says with a laugh to fresh editions of NEWSWEEK.

"Keith [Richards] said, 'It's not really metaphorical.' I think he's a bit worried because he lives in the U.S." Jagger explains. "But I don't."

The full lyric also mocks National Security Advisor Condoleezza Rice.

News about the song surfaced a few weeks ago with many expecting that it would not make the finally cut on the new CD, A BIGGER BANG.

Jagger once vowed not to comment on the political process in the United States.

"I feel very much at home in America. I've spent half my adult life here. I have many personal feelings. But I'm from the school that considers it impolite to comment on other people's elections. Now if I had the vote - and I should have, as I pay so much in taxes - I would have a lot to say."

Now with the elections long over, the tongue is unleashed!

The band kicks off its world tour in Boston on Aug. 21.

Regarding the conversation some of us had about Laura Rozen and her "articles" on the AIPAC investigation ...and with this tidbit I rest my case on Rozen's very transparant journalistic slants.


"Journalists in Washington were on guard. The New York Times has reported that McNulty’s office wants to talk to all reporters who communicated in the past with Rosen and Weissman. JTA has learned that two of the reporters referred to as receiving leaks in 2004 about alleged threats against Americans and Israelis in northern Iraq are Glenn Kessler of The Washington Post and Laura Rozen of the Nation."

Your US senators at work..


Senator calls pope’s ambassador

Sen. Rick Santorum (R-Pa.) called the Vatican’s embassy in Washington to express concern about Pope Benedict XVI’s omission of Israel from a list of countries victimized by terrorism.
On Aug. 3, Santorum called Apostolic Nuncio Gabriel Montalvo, the pope’s ambassador to Washington, and told him he was hearing concerns from the Jewish community and had his own concerns about the pope’s recent comments, said Barbara Ledeen, a spokeswoman for Santorum.

Montalvo accepted the comments and said he would pass them on to the Vatican, Ledeen said. A spokeswoman at the Apostolic Nunciature in Washington said the office does not comment on private conversations.

The pope’s pronouncement on terrorism — which ignored Israel but condemned attacks in Egypt, Turkey, Iraq and Britain — has sparked a war of words between Israel and the Vatican.
