More Smack Down

Remember when I pointed out Edward Daley at the American Thinker and his comments about Bill O’Reilly? Well, Tim Blair has weighed in, and where I said that Mr. Daley is the more polished, Mr. Blair is certainly the more eloquent. Quothe Tim Blair: While we DO thank you for the gift of your fear, […]

Hahahahaha!

She’s a politician and she got glamour shots of herself! Can you imagine Nancy Pelosi with two dozen glamour shots of herself?! Augh! (Curtsy: Politburo Diktat)

If Fanny Farmer Were an Iraqi Insurgent, This Would Be Her Cookbook

Little Green Footballs had this way back on the 17th., didn’t they? Or are these different chemical and biological weapons with instructions in English, German, and Russian. At any rate, more chemical and biological weapons were found.

Maybe They Forgot?

Early anti-Bush demos fizzle in Canada Even the organizers didn’t show up: Efforts to contact protest organizers were unsuccessful, with the phone numbers listed by organizers remaining unanswered.

Oh Thank God

Pig not degraded by televised sexual experience, British watchdog rules That’s a relief. I find it an amusing diversion to imagine Posh with a tape of Rebecca Loos getting the, ah, sample, that she watches whenever she’s feeling blue. Just so she can see how far that stupid woman fell.

Web of Influence, Indeed

Foreign Policy Magazine has a seven page article about blogs, and starts out (chronologically) with: It was March 21, 2003—two days after the United States began its “shock and awe” campaign against Iraq—and the story dominating TV networks was the rumor (later proven false) that Saddam Hussein’s infamous cousin, Ali Hassan al-Majid (“Chemical Ali”), had […]

Wow… How… Revolutionary

A Z-List celebrity actually says something positive to get noticed, rather than the usual line of I-haven’t-worked-in-years-except-for-that-one-flop-so-I’m-going-to-visit-Iraq-and-tell-the-world-I-know-best actors. Pat Sajak has cast a Hollywood searchlight to the Netherlands. There’s another possibility; one that seems crazy on the surface, but does provide an explanation for the silence, and is also in keeping with the political climate […]

While the Dutch Kill Theirs on Purpose

Floridians neglect theirs to death by accident. I’m tired of Scott Peterson. Does this count as murder with special circumstances (child neglect, drug use, an abomination in the sight of god, etc)?

This Sounds Like Good News

But why do I get the feeling it will include an exclusion of the US from the Security Council in its first draft, or some such nonsense? UN unveils sweeping blueprint for reform

Say, About Those Declining Population Numbers…

This sort of thing isn’t going to help. Yes yes, the Dutch are euthanizing terminally ill babies who won’t do much for the population for very long, and it’s all very sad, but, um… Well, everyone knows the arguments.

Less Hand Wringing and More Solid Facts

Iraqi Election Details are out. (Curtsy: Politburo Diktat) The ballot for the Iraqi elections scheduled for Jan. 30 may list about 200 parties or individuals, each identified on a line with a name and a logo, but each voter will have a single vote to cast. (was that in question? or is this in response […]

Must Be a Pennsylvania Thing

Just watching Tom Ridge’s press conference. Anyone else notice he sounds just like Jimmy Stewart?

This is What We Like to Hear

Reciprocal Boost for Israel and Italy in Joint Weapons Production Screw the Canadians. They’re too busy looking for mechanics to work on their submarines, much less weapons development. We like Geopolitical Realignment.

Babs is Being Clever Again

Why does anyone still read her? My head hurts. Anyway, before the aneurism swelled to painful proportions, I got as far as this: Only in the Bush Administration can one’s consistent failures and misjudgments lead to ascension within the ranks. Let’s discuss the Democratic success stories, shall we? Bill didn’t do anything but lose to […]
