Phew… Maybe it is just Gail Collins on mushrooms or something. My sense of order has been restored. Bob Herbert wants us to get to the post post-9/11 era quick so he can start attacking Giuliani again.
For the second time in a week, the NY Times has an editorial criticizing Democrats. This has had more than a slight effect on my understanding of the world, and for some reason I feel as if I am in some alternate universe (remember bizarro Seinfeld?). I am going to hop over to the Washington Times andthe Free Republic to search for editorials praising Clinton and Daschle.
Haven’t seen this online anywhere yet, so I thought I would mention it. On the televisin news this evening, it was gleefully noted by the MSNBC crew that Bush referred to the Pakistanis as “Paki’s,” which is apparently a derogatory term for Pakistanis. No doubt this will be fuel for the fire for the ‘Bush is an idiot crew.’
At any rate, “paki” seems to be slightly less derogatory to my ears than ‘The Great Satan,” as we are affectionately called in those oil-rich sinkholes a couple thousand miles to the east.
One of the first things I noticed when I started to read all ofthese blogs was that I no longer feel the need to have the tv running on CNN, MSNBC, or FOX 24/7. Bloggers are funnier, faster, and wiser. At any rate, I still watch some shows while I am working, and I would like to nominate this gem as the Best Question by a Telepundit for the Year 2002.
At any rate, last Thursday or Friday, Mike Barnicle was filling in for Chris Matthews, and he asked Alon Pinkas to “explain to me the difference between Osama bin Laden and Yasser Arafat besides height.”
I could not have said it better myself, Mike.
I guess I did not miss the debate. Today Will Quick discusses blogs and Fair Use, something I was babbling about in my usual incoherent manner the other day (yesterday??).
Jima Romanesko points out this conversation in which it appears that some people are initmidated by Donald Rumsfeld. And, no. It is not the Taliban.
Rich Galen is up to his usual antics: providing plausible explanations to things I normally am to lazy to understand.
