Rumble in the Blogosphere

"Rumble" as we used the term in the days of my (misspent) youth: A street fight.

Seems the Left side of the street doesn't think the First Amendment applies to the hosts of a certain San-Fran talk show co-hosted by Melanie Morgan and Lee Rodgers (caveat -- both sites are link-heavy to some really neat places, so don't go surfing at work unless the boss is elsewhere) and have declared jihad on them, their employer and the radio station itself.

The Right side of the street, with FREEpers in the van, are mobilizing to defend a Lady in Distress.

The Lefties have opened with a BlogSwarm and the Right is countering with a FaxSwarm.

Electronic Mayday call from Melanie is in Flash Traffic, slightly abridged and annotated by Yrs Trly...

Dusty Drops In

[He did it late last night - and, as usual, his stuff ought to be it's own post, instead of crammed into the bottom of the H&I.]

John! Quit it! You want to give me a freakin' heart attack?!? Naming a school after an actual, no shite 21st century military hero? What's Kos gonna think? Atrios? I gotta sit down, I think I'm getting a case of the vapors...the horror!

Or not. In fact, I think I'll just salute smartly (standard greeting to MoH winners, regardless of rank, for those who didn't know) and smile quietly to myself at the gaskets currently blowing in DNC HQ

-P.S. Congressman Murtha? F**k off.

That is all...

I thought I'd be done by now, but I'm not (too much coffee, a bruised rib cage--what you get when a 52-year-old tries to scrimmage with a 9-year-old female soccer star-in-waiting and hoping the Tylenol with Codeine kicks in soon--trying to run the battery in the laptop to sleep to calibrate it after getting the replacement that isn't designed to explode, something I liked to call the al-Lithium al-Ion Special, etc., etc., etc.).

Anyway, here's a variation on an earlier theme:

Jeremy Glick Senior High School
Thomas Burnett Elementary

Caught on, yet?

How about the Mark Bingham Trauma Center

Got it now? No? OK, last hint...

The Todd Beamer Federal Building.

Of course, none of that'll ever happen if the Deaniacs control the conversation. Thank God for blogs...shouting at the gathering Darkness and remembering what Churchill said:

"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. Improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live. A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement; the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property - either as a child, a wife, or a concubine - must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.

"Individual Moslems may show splendid qualities. Thousands become the brave and loyal soldiers of the Queen: all know how to die. But the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it. No stronger retrograde force exists in the world..."

Sorry, y'all but I got no more patience with any of 'em.

Hmmm. La Schlussel is at it again.

I don't know these guys from anyone, I don't have a dog in this fight.

But having gotten a Schlussel-Standard "Cease and Desist I Own Everything I Ever Saw Or Put On The Web" from the lady, such as for this Rebus...

Guesss Who is a Horse's Ass?

One wonders how it differs in any significant fashion from her use of the Northeast Intelligence Network logo in this post of hers?

She even did it for exactly the same reason - Parody - that I did. But for me to do it, it's a violation of her copyright, for her to do it - well, she's a lawyer as she'll tell you at the drop of a hat - so, somehow it's apparently different.

Perhaps so, in some arcane fashion. I'm sure I'll hear about which hairs you split to reach that conclusion.

But this one is pure me. Created completely by me, but "in the fashion of" Ms. Schlussel... so to speak.

This is my Warholian Can of Campbell's Soup.

Providence! Here I am, groggy after two nights of crappy/no sleep, wondering what I'm going to put up this morning, since I'm kinda Jesse'd out. (There are things working behind the scenes to put together a process for vetting [ooo! a pun!] these guys, btw) Night before last we lost power for several hours - and since I use a CPAP there wasn't a whole lot of sleeping that night, and last night sucked, too. Like you all care. Moving on...

Oh, yeah - what's the Post of the Day going to be? Well, I open up the email to go through the overnight comments and find troll-scat in a bag on the apron of the portcullis, which a few late-night visitors stepped in because the troll musta broken out the light. Steve must have surprised the troll, because he forgot to light the bag, and the email got dumped by my spam-filter.

I stuck his missive [with my annotations] in the Flash Traffic/Extended Entry for your viewing pleasure. I deliberately altered the link to this troll's website because I refuse to allow dunderheads like that to use this place to try to capture some traffic.

As for the substance of the troll's post... I think that Pinch Sulzberger and Justice Ginsberg and Robert Rubin would be rather *shocked* to find themselves on a list of supporters of President Bush.

This is simply a list of prominent Jews, in government and out. And as useful as a list of prominent Catholics, or Irish, or African Americans. In other words, except as an indicator of the biases of the author, not useful at all.

Ergo, the prima facie evidence is simple anti-semitism, vice anything else useful. Not that the nick of "Imaginary Holocaust" wasn't an indicator.

I visited the website. Castle Argghhh! will not send traffic that way, nor do we support this form of Moonbattery. If this is all you've got, IH, please stay up in the rafters as a lurker. Don't soil the comment space with pointless drivel like this. But do wander through the pics of the collection. You'll especially like the well-marked Israeli Mauser and battlefield capture Arab pieces (with the exception of the Turk pieces, which aren't battlefield captures...)

Any further postings of this nature from this source will simply be deleted. Any further postings of this nature will simply be deleted. The only reason it survives is because it gives me a platform to make the statement that this space does not entertain this viewpoint, and is not provided to promote it. Oh, and please, as this space is private property and non-governmental, the First Amendment does not apply internally, only externally. Well, externally at least until John McCain has his way.

If you'd like to pile on this hoser, you may do so in the comments. *All* the rulez apply. If all you have to say is "#$%*^" or " #*$%^" or "!(@%^," just mutter it to yourself and move on... Oh, I'll allow mild personal snarkage if it's clever and witty. This is an exceptional case, I'll allow exceptional behavior. No spittle-flecked rants, please, unless you are going to clean up after yourself! Absolutely NO poop-flinging. It's expensive to clean the tapestries.

Speaking of Generals Colonels.

Let's talk about Colonel Janis Karpinski and what this wretched example of the Officer Corps is up to.

She has a book out. One Woman's Army. I haven't read it, I'm not sure I'll have the stomach to wade through it. I might have to go see if the local library has it, as I'm not sure I want to contribute to the financial health of this pathetic example of an officer totally unable to accept responsibility for her failures in command. Mind you, even though we finally have a LTC being charged over Abu Ghraib, I'm *still* looking for more senior scalps to hang at the portcullis.

While I know nothing is going to happen to her for this - her book cover is, quite simply, wrong, and in that little, dark, vindictive corner of my soul, I wonder if it's chargeably so.

Karpinski is a Colonel. Not a General. And all her wishing to the contrary doesn't make it so. And, technically, she's never *been* a General, her promotion to same having been tainted by her failure to acknowledge her arrest for shoplifting while a Colonel. That event caused her promotion to be set-aside... as if it had never happened. Like it or not, in a very real legal sense, she has *never* been a General, and she certainly is not one now.

Ergo - *this* is what her book cover *should* look like.

COLONEL Janis Karpinski

And lest anyone have any doubt - I checked her AKO entry. Colonel.

I left the tagline to the book title unchanged. The story is right on the cover.

But I *will* accept a review copy, should the publisher (as the *brilliant* firms of Simon and Schuster and Regnery already do) wish to provide one...

Update: If you are coming in from the link, you really want to see this post. But you're welcome to hang around and poke in the corners.
