And who did I run into?
John J. Miller, pimping an author who writes fiction about the War On Terror. Fictional universes are great - wingnuts can create alternate realities where the GWOT can be won militarily, and the libruls, who are always wrong, get their comeuppance.
Whatever fantasy flicks your Bic, dude.
Mark Steyn says the Corner's readership is noticing the dearth of posting as The End approaches.
Well yeah, because unlike fictional fantasy worlds where the libruls get their comeuppance, reality kinda sux for the wingnuts right now. Too bad, so sad.
Amy Holmes notes, "Drudge is reporting that Oprah may be offering to help Obama produce his half hour infomercial." From this, she spins a hypothetical where (a) Obama accepts the offer, and (b) Oprah forces her employees to work on the infomercial, whether they want to or not. She then discusses how crummy Obama and Oprah would be if they were to do this.
The appropriate response seems to be to discuss what we'd think of Amy Holmes if she had sex with goats in public, since that hasn't happened either.
Maggie Gallagher demonstrates that she doesn't understand the concept of a 'Kos Diary' - that there's really no difference between a Kos diarist whose diary hasn't been promoted to the front page, and a random left-of-center blogger that nobody's ever heard of.
Maggie, dear, anybody can write those things. And does. It's "from The Daily Kos" in the exact same sense that, if I post a comment on the WaPo website about one of their articles, that comment is "from the Washington Post." This is really quite old news. Please do something about that learning curve.
In consecutive posts, Jonah Pantload celebrates "the well-deserved beat down of Jacob Weisberg's amazingly silly epitaph of libertarianism," and, demonstrating the Corner's commitment to libertarian conservatism, Maggie Gallagher roots for California's Prop 8, which would deny marriage rights to gays.
Argue it out amongst yourselves, guys, and get back to us afterwards.
And via Byron York, Sarah Palin says “Rose the teacher” is among those who can expect to have their “dreams dashed by the Obama tax increase.” Aside from coaches of major sports at big universities, how many teachers earn over $250K per year? Good luck finding one. But if York's skeptical, he isn't saying.
