Can you make against plural? Againsts. Anyway, here are some of the prominent ones from today.

Big Lizards: Kucinich Unhiniched

By mmguestblogger  •  January 10, 2007 07:19 PM

This post is absolutely not by our dearest Michelle; instead, it’s by those rascals at Big Lizards, who crawled out of their holes long enough to bespeak themselves. ~^~ Rep. Dennis Kucinich (D-OH) was just a guest on Hugh Hewitt’s radio show. Hugh just asked him if he knows who the Supreme Leader of Iran […]

Bush speech: See it before you can hear it

By mmguestblogger  •  January 10, 2007 06:59 PM

Bush speech pre-game. It’s like ESPN Gameday, but with a disappointing lack of Kirk Herbstreit. Tonight at 9 p.m., the President will admit mistakes in Iraq or lay out a plan for victory, depending on which side of the aisle you’re seated. Let’s go over what we actually know before tonight, which given the leaks, […]

Britain turned down suicide-bomber attack on Hitler

By See-Dubya  •  January 10, 2007 01:01 PM

There was one of the sequels to The Dirty Dozen–I forget which one, but it wasn’t very good–in which the Dozen were sent into Germany in order to kill an SS Major in order to keep him from killing Hitler. The theory was that since Hitler’s crazy-evil leadership was hampering the German war effort, it […]

Reading a Warzone: Bloggers in Iraq

By mmguestblogger  •  January 10, 2007 12:08 PM

Iraqi army, Iraqi police, Shiites, Sunnis, U.S. troops, local tribes, insurgents, and how to win. Bill of INDC is in Iraq, and puts them all into one dispatch for the Examiner: The radio crackled: a M1A-1 Abrams tank was hit by a large IED while patrolling a notoriously active downtown street. The typically invulnerable behemoth […]

Big Lizards: The 100 Man Lurch

By mmguestblogger  •  January 10, 2007 05:53 AM

This post is by Dafydd of Big Lizards, not by our dearest Michelle. No, seriously… I really mean it. I don’t look anything like her, and I’m married to a lady, not a dude. And I think I’m taller than she. ~^~ I must take unusual exception to the conclusion of one of my blogmates […]

Media Watching

By See-Dubya  •  January 10, 2007 04:01 AM

I don’t know whether to laugh or to cry at this entry from Patterico. Actually, scratch that: it’s pretty clearly cryin’ time. The LA Times’ cluelessness is chuckle-worthy, but their subject matter here is outrageous and tragic. In 2005, the LA Times wrote a sparkly puff piece about a “community leader” and former gang member […]

Triumph des Caliphs

By See-Dubya  •  January 10, 2007 03:33 AM

Leni Riefenstahl’s 1935 film “Triumph des Willens” (Triumph of the Will) went a long way toward making the Nazis look cool, or at least, rather less like a bunch of pasty sausage-gobbling dorkozoids. Now, consider this “promotional” film for the radical Muslim group Hizb-ut-Tahrir (more about them here and here). Although they take themselves every […]
