Brian Williams said what?

By Michelle Malkin  •  June 30, 2005 11:56 PM

Durbinization alert: Tons of readers are e-mailing me about NBC News anchor Brian Williams’ comments tonight in which he apparently compared the Founding Fathers to modern-day terrorists. The remarks seem to pooh-pooh the story about Iranian president-elect Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s alleged involvement in the 1979 hostage crisis at the U.S. embassy in Tehran. Williams previewed his […]

NORMAN MAILER: STILL OFF HIS MEDS

When last we heard from the paranoid codger, he was blaming Karl Rove for Newsweek’s bogus Koran desecration story. The NYPost’s Page Six brings us the latest Mailer-strom: Norman Mailer is catching static over “Asiatic.” The literary lion offended the politically-correct crowd by denouncing New York Times critic Michiko Kakutani as a “kamikaze” and an […]

I’ve written before on the perils of paying off throat-slitting terrorists. John Rosenthal at Transatlantic Intelligencer tipped me off to his very interesting analysis examining the correlation between ransom and civilian casualties in Iraq. Check it out.

The series of five stamps released for general use Wednesday depicts a […]
