It’s too Funny to Laugh at
Mike Tyson says to interviewer Greta Van Susteren:
“I just hate [his rape victim Desiree Washington's] guts. She put me in that state, where I don’t know…I really wish I did now. But now I really do want to rape her.”
What else can you say? I suppose this [...]
The Second Sex
No, I’m not talking about sloppy seconds, you preevert. Suzanne Fields writes:
Modern feminism has freed women to work, but it liberated them to be lonely. Those who get the most gratification from the sexual revolution are men in their late 20s and 30s who enjoy the life of Don Juan (without [...]
Jesus Was Gay
Really! At least, that’s what Rollan McCleary of Melbourne, Australia has been paid public funds to prove.
Melbourne-based Rollan McCleary, who will today be awarded his doctorate, earned $17,000 a year to work on his three-year thesis on homosexual spirituality.
As well as his revelation about Christ, Dr McCleary has also reached [...]
That Despicable John Fitzgerald Kennedy
William F. Buckley comments on the recent admission by Marion Fahnestock that she had an affair with then-President John F. Kennedy over 40 years ago.
Never mind his abstract indifference to adultery. What he did was to seduce a 19-year-old girl working in the White House under his command. A [...]
Septermber 11 and the Death Penalty
Byron York has a good article about shifting attitudes toward the death penalty:
In a new Gallup poll, 74 percent of those surveyed say they favor the death penalty for people convicted of murder. Just two years ago, in May 2001, support stood at 65 percent, its lowest point [...]
The Matrix Reloaded
Lileks has some interesting things to say about The Matrix Reloaded:
Short version of the review – Attention, Wachowski Brothers: put down the bong and step away from the script.
Long version follows.
Of my innumerable complaints, the one that rankles me the least is Zion, but it’s a long-standing worry of [...]
Check out this article from Scrappleface:
U.S. Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld apologized to Senate Democrats today for pre-war “hyping” of the threat posed by Saddam Hussein’s regime.
“I’m sorry Senators Biden, Rockefeller, Byrd, Roberts and others,” said a contrite Mr. Rumsfeld. “We overestimated the threat posed by a lunatic dictator, who [...]
Sorry everyone; still not at 100%, blogging will continue tomorrow I hope. I’m not giving up on you, I promise. Today will be spent watching Planet of the Apes movies, hoping my sinuses drain, and gloating over the fact that the peppers and strawberries I recently planted are already beginning to sprout. Now [...]
More Light Blogging
Still sick, etc. etc. Check out this article on Jayson Blair.
The guy’s a shitbag. That’s it. Laughing about plaigiarism, happy to have lied, glad to have been an example of everything that’s wrong with affirmative action (as if the whole concept isn’t bad enough). I refuse to write about him any [...]
But only for a bit. Blogging will be light today due to exhaustion and ear infection. Read Lileks, especially today’s bleat about the dickhead in the BBC who’s been publicly claiming that the Jessica Lynch rescue was faked. Drink your milk. Don’t go to Canada when you’re sick.
One more Thing
This from Emmett Tyrrell:
WASHINGTON, D.C. — The dark times at The New York Times grow darker. Just days after the paper flagellates itself with a front-page story admitting that it repeatedly published fabricated stories full of plagiarism and other journalistic sleight-of-hand from a 27-year-old con-man reporter whom the editors of the [...]
I’ll be going on a business trip this weekend and won’t be back to blogging until Wednesday, May 21. I’m considering writing up a trip report as a kind of blog of the trip as it happens. We’ll see. Despite that I’ll be going to Canada, I doubt that there’d be much political [...]
STOP THE PRESSES!
Because it’s such news in and out of the Blogosphere, I feel that I must weigh in on the Jayson Blair scandal.
Who cares? The Gray Lady is so goddamn slanted anyhow you might as well be reading transcripts from NPR newscasts. If they caught some guy making things up, it comes [...]
No Food for Oil
Check this out at SFGate.com:
The United Nations oil-for-food program in Iraq allowed billions of dollars in illegal oil revenue to flow to Saddam Hussein, lawmakers said Wednesday in a call for making internal audits public.
Rep. Joe Barton, R-Texas said his Energy and Commerce subcommittee plans to asked the [...]
A Bit more on the Catfight
Columnist Kathleen Parker weighs in on it:
No, what’s disturbing and frankly creepy about the “powder-puff” implosion is the apparent lack of remorse, empathy or insight -or any of the responses we might expect from well-adjusted, sensitive human beings -either from participants or among observers.
There’s something very wrong [...]
