  • The Royal Treatment

    Neal Boortz’ producer Royal Marshall is currently on CNN’s TalkBack Live arguing the anti-idiotarian position against a colosally confused Brit. Too bad they’re not in the same room, as Royal is a very large black gentleman ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • Movin’ on up

    It’s been rumored since anti-Americanism cranked up post-9/11 that the US might move it’s military bases from Germany to Poland. This would be a win-win since it keeps US troops in a country where they aren’t hated, it will greatly boost the Polish economy, and it’ll make sure Putin doesn’t get any ideas about resurrecting the Iron Curtain. Also, it would further devestate Germany’s economy and maybe get them to clarify their position a bit.

  • Crikey!

    An Aussie lefty blogger and nudist got Fisked and then picked a fight about it in Andrea Harris’s comments.

    UPDATE: Andrea puts major smack down. Even Acidman and Misha will be hard pressed to out-bile that.

  • Nelson Mandela

    I know that moron’s been a topic of many Fiskings lately, but I like this one by Laurence Simon the best.

    UPDATE: this dispatch from IMAO’s world ain’t bad either.

  • Muggings Administered Daily

    Noel shares his story of how he tried to be a good leftist but those darn facts kept getting in the way. Emperor Misha hints at a similar story but then doesn’t tell it. Tease.

  • Fisk-wah!

    Glenn Reynolds says that the White House is emailing out this Fisking of the New York Times to lots of journalists. Following in the footsteps of “Axis of Weasel” becoming an internationally known term, I can only say “Advantage: Blogosphere!”.

    Charles Krauthammer eulogizes the UN. And it’s not complimentary.

  • Message in a Bottle

    Everyone’s done this but me so far, but I just have to list some of the more amusing searches that have brought people here:

    “Paige Davis bikini” (what, not Amy Wynn?)
    “mindy paige davis” (don’t make me staple flowers to your bathroom)
    “cox forkum” (this would sound weird to non-LGF regulars! ๐Ÿ™‚
    “naked peace protestors pics” (sorry boys)
    “Joe Millionaire” and bondage (I know why this is a search, but I don’t know why it leads *here* of all places).
    “bomb france” (damn skippy)

    And yes, I’m aware that even listing these will skew future searches even worse. But I couldn’t help it.

  • Bush has a Posse

    The “gang of 8” has become 10, with the additions of Albania and Slovakia.

    Additionally, the EU parliament has more than enough signatures to start an investigation of where the “Baby Wipe Billionaire” Yasser Arafat is spending Europe’s money. What a terrible day for the likes of Chirac and Chris Patten.
