'it was a tale of sound of fury, signifying nothing, told by an idiot



And who wants to risk eyeburn by reading on to find out?

Don't look at me. I'm invoking my white privilege.


I suspected as much, even before ailaI saw the details:


Cecil Turner (on mini pad)

Well, my fave remains "Wherefore art thou Romeo?" . . . which isn't really even a misquote.

I wish I'd known privilege covered the article; but for those who are tempted, no, there really isn't a point hidden away at the end.


Peril Sensitive Sunglasses are in order when handling the NYT.


Dems won't call Muslim terrorists "terrorists". But they have no problem calling TEA Partiers "terrorists".

Could it be any clearer whose side they're on?

I linked this on the last thread, but I'll put it here also.

Gowdy editorial:



I just checked my white privilege and I still have it.


New post up that is full of accurate quotes, including from matt's favorite, Whittaker Chambers.


Trying to ground what is clearly going on with what has been sought for a while.

Jeff Dobbs

Heck, I've got white male privilege.

Not too sure about this privilege thing . . . If it won't get me into Princeton, or out of reading the NY Times, what good is it?


Just some rogue agents in Cincinatti;



My white privilege let me castrate sheep in the snow in high mountain valleys.

TM, you rock!


'western education is forbidden' must be a guideline, not a hard and fast rule.

I pass my days peacefully without reading Gail Collins.

To paraphrase Satchel Paige who gave the following advice to young ballplayers, "The social ramble ain't restful"--reading Gail Collins (or any other part of the bilge in the New York Times) ain't restful. In Paul Krugman's case, it's not only not restful, it's revolting.


I agree with Jane. TomM has gone all Shakespearean on Gail Collins' incredibly white, arrogant, cellulte puckered, ass.

Bravo Zulu Tom.

TM always rocks. You think I come here for the golf tips?


TM chooses to snark Krugman, Brooks, Kristof, my bete noires are David 'Abbott' Kirkpatrick,

"You think I come here for the golf tips?"

So I jump ship in Hong Kong and I make my way over to Tibet, and I get on as a looper at a course over in the Himalayas.

A looper, you know, a caddy, a looper, a jock. So, I tell them I'm a pro jock, and who do you think they give me? The Dalai Lama, himself. Twelfth son of the Lama. The flowing robes, the grace, bald... striking.

So, I'm on the first tee with him. I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one - big hitter, the Lama - long, into a ten-thousand foot crevasse, right at the base of this glacier. Do you know what the Lama says? "Gunga galunga... gunga, gunga-lagunga."

So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consciousness."

So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.


There's no gambling at Bushwood sir.....
and I never slice.

Hey Judge, you can owe me.

I owe you nothing!


This is my own hybrid. It’s a mix between Kentucky Bluegrass and Northern California sensimila. The great thing about this is you can play 36 holes on it and then get smoked to the bejeesus with it.


She' been sharper since Sochi ended;


so I put forward at the Horde, the notiony that Volodya might be trying to put forth a new dynasty, like many predecessors did, the Romanovs were not the first in the line,


As the Kipling line, from 'the Gods of the Copybook Headings;

Gowdy should just throw the question right back at Tapper! Why doesn't the MFM care as much about Benghazi as the Iraq intel?

Captain Hate

Is this the Jake Tapper that people like Maybee insist is somebody "we can work with"? I've worked with a lot of a-holes, if that's what she meant...

Btw, I'm not clicking on any Carlos Slim links but how did the title of David Foster Wallace's humongous book get in the post title?


Janet - I just tweeted your question to The Anchoress (who linked Mediaite) and Jake Tapper.

Miss Marple

I would ask Tapper how many hearings, leaks, and general investigations he wants for Iraq intelligence, since it seems to me we had a boatload.

Perhaps he should go ask British Intelligence or German Intelligence, which had the same information.

Gowdy wasn't even in Congress then. How in the heck is this relevant to anything?

I would ask Tapper myself but unfortunately he blocked me about 3 years ago for criticizing him.


I stopped following Tapper after he reverted to form. Even reporters should be curious. He's not.


Tapper falling back into Prog JuiceBox line, IMO, shows how serious Benghazi is to the Progs/HildaBeast. They will all stall and mock continuously, the Benghazi truth is the enemy to these characters.


I was more struck by the uncharacteristically weak response from Gowdy. I hope he's ready the next time the question comes up.

David Burge (@iowahawkblog) tweet: "You know what's more persuasive with slave traders than hashtags and sad-face selfies? Marine snipers."


Gowdy should just throw the question right back at Tapper! Why doesn't the MFM care as much about Benghazi as the Iraq intel?

Hell they care 100 times more about Valerie Plame.


Kirkpatrick doesn't disappoint, he buys the notion of BH as overeager choir boy
