Mark Steyn interrupts his vacation by subbing for Rush today and tomorrow. See link for other Steyn sightings.

Is the caption contest still going?

“Since you don’t eat with your left hand, do you at least wash it?”

--Mussulman...Mussulman...no doubt all self-respecting jihadists would consider the term insulting today.--

The Arab ones probably would, as it's a Turkic and Persian corruption of 'muslim' and we know how blissfully the Religion of Peace® coexists across ethnic, sectarian and national lines.

Danube of Thought

Thanks, CCal. Kinda surprised the Dems ever had a lead here.

Iggy, the guy Adams was meeting with was an Arab. Do you suppose he was slyly insulting him by using that term?

Anduril posted something at 10:40. I'd like to ask everyone who actually read it to say so on this thread.

hit and run

Captain:
to keep those "lives touched" numbers up

I didn't ask to be touched. I don't want to be touched.

To them it's "touching". To me it's being groped.

"Stop Touching Me!"

A kind of modern day version of "Don't Tread on Me!"

I only read anduril comments if they are one or two lines; or, not insulting others. So I don't read many anduril comments.

--I will be the first to proclaim, however, that JOM's contribution to the health of American society is substantial. The blog acts as a honey trap for bigots like DoT, Rob, pofarmer and so on.--

I am highly offended that my distrust and loathing of the cancer known as Islam has gone unrecognized, by name, by the resident ignoramus.
I bow to no one in my distaste for this murderous, coercive, mysoginistic, liberty hating and soul crushing idealogy that the world has been cursed with for nearly 1500 years.

--Iggy, the guy Adams was meeting with was an Arab. Do you suppose he was slyly insulting him by using that term?--

Doubt it DoT.
'Mussalman' was, I believe, a very common term for 'muslim' at the time.

The Hill: "A conscious decision was made by certain groups to destroy this presidency the minute it started," Feingold said in a question-and-answer session with The New York Times published Tuesday evening. "People say it was the healthcare bill — no, it wasn’t. I go to every county every year and hold a town meeting," he added. "Within days of the president being sworn in, I had people showing up at my town meeting with hats on, with tea bags coming out, saying this is going to be socialism."

No doubt the Wisconsin media are studying those tapes and will report on the accuracy of Feingold's assertion.

Just found this LUNed goldmine of data analysis of the Epic Fail Fall. I would love to hear the wizards of finance here comment on their observations. (As a lowly engineer, I avoid most discussions with $$ attached to the numbers.)

Well Rick Santelli's rant was in mid-Feb. 2009

Within days of the president being sworn in, I had people showing up at my town meeting with hats on

That's what a conspiracy looks like, people. I've been involved in various governmental headwear procurement systems over the years, and the lead time is measured in months. I was seeing these people in a matter of days.

And they had hats!

We've all heard the stories about the "free-enterprise" system, and all the wealth it's supposed to produce. But come on. The only thing that could get hats to people inside of a week - and in Wisconsin, for crying out loud - is a massive, massive conspiracy to destroy the President and the Presidency as an institution.

You just can't get hats to people that fast.

"Stop Touching Me!"

No means No?

Jim - "awaiting moderation", it says an hour later. Oh, why don't I just put it here too:

What an infantile bit of mewling. If opponents of the Ground Zero Mosque (said to be located in New York City, which as so often happens is neither new nor in York) are so obedient, why aren’t they slavishly following the President like you are? If you fancy yourself an intellectual, why aren’t you searching out and grappling with the reasons why so many people disagree with you instead of typing tired insults into a blog?

The members of the Cordoba project have proposed to exercise their rights to observe their religious beliefs in a manner many people find provocative and insulting. Their opponents have protested. What founding principle says that the former group is not to be questioned, while the latter are to be hounded from the public square? You arrogate to yourself the right not only to question but to mock and belittle those who seek only to exercise similar rights themselves.

To Ground Zero Mosque opponents, the project is suggestive of violence. As evidence, they point to the fact that the project was originally named for the site of a famous Muslim conquest; the fact that the man behind the project has a personal history of violence; and the fact that the building is to be built to serve a religion in the name of which three thousand human beings were murdered less than a mile away. To you, the opponents suggest violence. Based on what?

I’m certain that there are individuals who hold bad reasons for opposing the mosque, as I’m certain that there are individuals who hold bad reason for supporting it. I don’t feel a need to say all mosque supporters are closet Islamic supremacists, or you all want to make the 9/11 widows and orphans cry. Why must you ascribe the worst motivations to your opponents? Are you ignorant of their reasoning, or afraid of the implications of your inability to refute it? Either way, your position is unworthy of a gentleman and a scholar. If you fancy yourself either, you’ll have to do better than this post.

DebinNC

Maybe Feingold saw scary-hatted folks like these

Clarice

Isn't it odd that the better and more rapid our communications industry, the more banal and meaningless the messages ? Can you think of one memorable Obama speech line ?

On the other hand we had people like Lincoln, largely self taught and then from damned few books, speaking at whistle stops and town meetings with little but his notes...

DebinNC

Can you think of one memorable Obama speech line?

Yes, that nationally televised joint session of Congress speech in which he said profit is part of overhead.

boris

Wonder if Mark Steyn will have anything to say about GZM?

Jim Ryan

Are you ignorant of their reasoning, or afraid of the implications of your inability to refute it?

This is a nice turn of phrase.

Earth to Russ:
Within days of being sworn in the dope had signed a nearly one trillion dollar porkulus bill. Think that might have had a little something to do with it?

"The Steve and Eydie of the Islamic set" I think we have the measure of Mark's opinion

rse

Wow bgates.

I post and you attack works well.

Brit Blog is a good email reader send because it alerts you into how mischaracterizations are being asserted without support and then accepted as mainstream knowledge.

Not anymore.

Pofarmer

Earth to Russ:

And, they'd already voted on a hugely unpopular TARP bill, there was already talk about the "Stimulus" bill, and overtures about Health Care.

Threadkiller

"Within days" of the oil spill, Obama should have asked these fast acting Americans to help.

PD

And they had hats!

Hey, if John Kerry can have a hat, why can't we?

PD

Can you think of one memorable Obama speech line?

His February 2009 prime-time presser in which he promised that people making less than $2xx,000 a year wouldn't pay "one dime more" in taxes of any kind.

I think a few days later he signed the bill raising cigarette taxes, which affects people in every economic category.

Rob Crawford

The blog acts as a honey trap for bigots like DoT, Rob, pofarmer and so on.

*snort*

Then why are you always here, Bubu? Did the "honey trap for bigots" catch you, too?

If you really think this site is a "honey trap for bigots", prove you're not a bigot by never commenting here again. If you *ever* make another comment, then you've demonstrated that, by your own measure, you're a bigot.

Pofarmer

Let's face it. Anyone who believed that is a waste of oxygen.

Meanwhile the folks at PPP must have a chiropractor on staff, from all the injuries,
from falling when the football is pulled away

" It

cast of Predator,"

Great line Narciso, LOL!

bunkerbuster

Thanks Rob. But, no. Bigots are defined by their comments, not the other way around. It says it all that you would make exactly that error of logic.

Ignatz

Bigot.
