  • Rational debate

    Megan McArdle attempts to hash out gay marriage using comparisons to previous failed social-engineering efforts like welfare. While the piece doesn’t draw any actual conclusions, I think the general vitriol level in the comments reinforces my impression that it’s overall against it.

    Related: a new CNN/USA Today poll shows opposition to gay marriage up to 68%, from 58% prior to the elections. This means Andrew Sullivan will write something unintentionally hilarious in 5..4..3…

    The French goalie who initially refused to play against the Joooos™ went in anyway and got scored on. Maybe that’s really why he didn’t want to play?

    Robert Mugabe, the man who puts the “dick” in “dictator”, won re-election. Of course, the opposition candidates aren’t convinced.

  • Been caught spinnin’

    The New York Times got caught doing what they do best (worst?) by the Power Line guys. Specifically, they had anti-Pope quotes ready to go but were not only unable to find anyone pro-Pope, but they published the story with “place quote here” markers intact. Whoops!

    Pope John-Paul II, one of the figures instrumental in bringing about the end of Soviet communism, is dead at the age of 84. The linked FNC story has tons of info available from it including pictures and articles on how the next pope will be chosen.

  • As you may have heard, an answering machine message by news/sportscaster Pat O’Brien has leaked out in which he says all manner of dirty things. But only the semi-retired Creator of Worlds thought to splice it into Lionel Richie’s “Hello”. The combination will make milk come out of your nostrils. Even if you aren’t drinking any. However, as noted in the title, this is definitely NC-17. So if you’re up to it, Ace has your hookup.
