  • John Kerry: terrified of a blogger

    And it’s not even one you SHOULD cower in terror of, like Misha or Mike Hendrix or Tom from Hootinan. Go see the sordid details for yourself.

  • Clue(tm). It’s a wonderful thing.

    Would-be jihadis discover that the Iraqis don’t like Saddam much. Next, maybe the media will discover this too.

    Michele made a movie about Rachel Corrie. Heh heh. (Read the Tim Blair link she provides for context before watching the movie).

  • Go figure

    An increasing number of Americans have a negative view of Islam. Not surprisingly, it seems to be CAIR’s fault.

  • Mooning your opponents

    Den Beste figures out why the anti-war crowd is failing, using examples from his own email. The first Update on the post is a link to a leftist who read this new article and then called him names again instead of arguing any positions or ideas. Go figure.

    Al Queda is reportedly planning more hijackings. I’m sorry, I don’t think that stunt will work again. Passengers know exactly what’s at stake now, and if anyone acted funny they’d be down faster than Brett Favre at the Warren Sapp Clone College.

    UPDATE: ScrappleFace agrees with my general assessment.

  • Things that make you go hmm

    The Blogathon organizers seem hell-bent to ignore their top fundraisers in favor of those promoting, shall we say, more proletarian causes. Tsk tsk.

    UPDATE: Michele has more.

    UPDATE 2: Meryl says it’s not what it appears.

  • Istanbul not Constantinople

    The Turks love the National Lampoon’s Vacation movies so much they’ve hired Chevy Chase to reprise the Clark Griswold role for a new commercial. I am not making this up. I could not if I tried.
