I’m still mired in the third cholera pandemic’s London outbreak, so no real posting. But I just saw this in my post-lunch attempt to read all of Twitter, and it’s too good not to share:
I have so many uses for this. You?
Plus: Bonus Champ, in all her world-weary glory:
This thread: it is open.
Megyn McArdle was daring you yesterday to come out of retirement and critique her latest defense of the whackos.
@JPL: Life is too short.
And I have another 40,000 words to get into shitty-first-draft shape by the end of the summer. No time for McArdle-gigging.
This really was a moment’s respite — four minutes later and Adam is sounding an alarm.
Go the way of the Russian warship is a great phrase.
@Tom Levenson: Just tell McArdle to go the way of the Russian warship.
@Old School: Works for me.
@Ohio Mom: Adam’s feet are big!
Hey–substance over cat pics every time.
Please show her the respect she deserves (none). Her name is Megan McArgleBargle.
@mrmoshpotato: Champ has her number and could take her out with a hiss and a swat.

@Ohio Mom: Meh on the Adam. I thought he’d be posting about what appears to be the beginning of the Ukrainian counter-attacking phase. I guess I’ll have to stay up late for that.
Anyway, now “go the way of the russian warship” will have to be more specific, as it appears that the Admiral Makarov is joining the Moskva on the bottom of the Black Sea (subject to independent confirmation.)

@Gin & Tonic: Admiral Makarov is/was a modern (2017) frigate and some people were amused that the namesake for the ship was born in Ukraine.
@Gin & Tonic: I would be very happy to post your take on the counter-attack and/or the significance of sinking the warships and/or anything else you have to say on Ukraine.
Really good to get multiple perspectives.
@Mike in NC: Most excellent news. And the weekend is just starting. I may also start practicing saying “make like a Russian warship”. Two smiles.
@JPL: Popehat has it covered.
[ snort! ]
I am the only one wondering why so many Ukrainians are using this in casual conversation with Tim Mak?
I can almost hear Champ asking me if I’ve gotten my ticket to the gun show
