Inoperable Terran

Irony is the enemy of the post-modern left(tm)

Archive for September, 2008

The new track from The Fireman, aka Paul McCartney and the producer Youth. Contrary to their previous efforts which were well-done if straight-ahead electronica this is balls-out blues rock. I’ve seen it described as “Helter Skelter as played by Led Zeppelin”, and that’s not far off.

For the kitchen with everything

Computer mouse pointer magnets. Cute!

  • Realism

    Kathleen Parker at NRO is today’s Kos talking point, but they don’t have the context that she’s been all but rooting for Obama since Mitt Romney dropped out. Rick Moran has a more even-keel analysis that’s neither too Debbie Downer nor too cheerleadery.

    UPDATE: Byron York has more medicine. Mona Charen largely splits the difference, although all 3 agree that making Palin try to recite McCain talking points on command is deeply stupid.
