It’s Mean, but… It’s funny.

It’s Mean, but…

It’s funny. Here you go.

I should probably get off the Dixie Chicks, but I couldn’t resist this one.

Hot enough for You, Rachel?

Hot enough for You, Rachel?

Another homicide bombing in Israel.

Three bystanders and the bomber were killed, and 55 people wounded, police and hospital officials said. Twenty people remained hospitalized later Wednesday, including six who were in serious condition.

It was the 89th suicide bombing targeting Israelis in the past 31 months. Since September [...]

Too Good to Pass up

Too Good to Pass up

I found this article by Mark Steyn via Instapundit:

Got that? Last month, the Russians were opposed to war on the grounds that there was no proof Iraq had weapons of mass destruction. This month, the Russians are opposed to lifting sanctions on the grounds that there’s no proof Iraq [...]

Sorry Phyllis, but You’re Wrong on this One

Phyllis Schlafly writes:

Three young women were part of the U.S. Army’s 507th Maintenance Support Company that was ambushed March 23 near the southern Iraqi city of Nasiriyah. Fortunately, Army Spc. Shoshana Johnson, 30, has been rescued, thanks to an Iraqi who told U.S. soldiers where American [...]

Peaophobia

Zoe Williams of the UK’s Guardian writes about homophobia in black culture:

This mistake is born out of one syllogism, one misconception and one silly error. To deal with those backwards, the silly error is this: where no one would ever define “white culture” solely by the views of its young straight men, there [...]

I Woke up Screaming

Do you remember the movie Dreamscape where President Eddie Albert has recurring, debilitating nightmares of nuclear war and a parapsychological think tank headed by Kate Capshaw and Dennis Quaid use Dennis’s psychic powers to unfuck his mind but are almost thwarted by evil psychic David Patrick Kelly?

I do.

I had [...]

One-Sided Pacifism

David Lewis Schaefer wrote a very interesting essay on Gandhi’s stance on Jewish suffering during World War Two.

It is interesting, in this regard, to recall how Gandhi himself responded to the evil perpetrated by one of Saddam?s role models, Adolf Hitler. In November, 1938, responding to Jewish pleas that he endorse the [...]

Exactly

Thomas Friedman of the New York Times writes:

As far as I’m concerned, we do not need to find any weapons of mass destruction to justify this war. That skull, and the thousands more that will be unearthed, are enough for me. Mr. Bush doesn’t owe the world any explanation for missing chemical weapons [...]

See? I’m Not the Only

See? I’m Not the Only One

Larry Elder states:

Hollywood’s antiwar critics seem to want it both ways. They use their podium to espouse their leftist views, yet, when individuals and private organizations react negatively, they shout: “First Amendment”! No, Mr. Robbins and Ms. Sarandon, the First Amendment prohibits governmental interference with political speech. It [...]

Touched by an Angel Sucks Big Green Donkey Dick

And I’m not afraid to say it. Cal Thomas has an article about the show and its final few episodes, basically lauding it as a masterwork of TV splendor, or some such. That’s the tough thing about being a Jewish conservative; you sometimes have to wade [...]

Whoops, One Last Bit, then I Go to Work

Lileks has a great bleat today:

That said: if anyone insists Santorum should suffer consequences for his speech, they are denying his First Amendment right to dissent! A chilling wind is blowing across America! If anyone disinvites him to an event, the black cloak of Ashcroftian [...]

Rick “The Dick” Santorum

The Volokh Conspiracy weighs in on the “faux pas” Rick Santorum made during the AP interview regarding gay sex. I must say that I agree wholeheartedly.

French Perfidy Explained

Check out Den Beste’s USS Clueless for an article on the appalling state of the French economy, among other things. What other things, you ask? Read it.

By the way, blogging will be light the rest of the week while I actually get some work done.

You Can’t Feel the Chill

You Can’t Feel the Chill Wind when You’re Dead

I found this article from ABC News Online via Jeff Jarvis:

[The gravedigger] said all the dead that arrived during the last three years he worked at the cemetery were aged between 15 and 30, men and women who had been shot or hanged. “They were [...]

Break Like the Chill Wind

The story is that Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon were going to speak at the Baseball Hall of Fame to commemorate the 15-year anniversary of the movie Bull Durham, but the party was canceled by Hall of Fame President Dale Petroskey because, as he wrote, “We believe your very public [...]
