Stuff I’ve been meaning to blog about but just haven’t gotten around to …

• • •

A letter from a trained soldier to our enemies … and our leaders.

• • •

This guy’s a waiter, but his blog is about waiting tables like Die Hard is about Christmas.

• • •

First there was Blog on the Run. Now there’s a blogger on the run. (Hat tip: Herb)

Must-see TV: Ann Coulter gets beaten up by a girl.

• • •

The New York Times on Pluto’s demotion: “Under the new rules, a planet must meet three criteria: it must orbit the Sun, it must be big enough for gravity to squash it into a round ball, and it must have cleared other things out of the way in its orbital neighborhood. The last of these criteria knocks out Pluto and Xena, which orbit among the icy wrecks of the Kuiper Belt, and Ceres, which is in the asteroid belt.”

To which my e-acquaintance Brian Bowling of the Tribune-Review in Pittsburgh adds in an e-mail to the NICAR-L listserv: “Parents all over the world have to be laughing about the ‘scientific’ criteria that knocked Pluto out of planet status — he didn’t pick up his room.”

I’m not surprised that 68% of female cadets at The Citadel report having been sexually harassed. No, what surprises me is that 17% of male cadets reported it.

• • •

And, finally, You Might Be a War Criminal If … a man who has prosecuted actual Nazi war criminals calls you one. But,
as “Rmj, Street Credentialed” observes: “Responsibility is so pre-9/11. Or will be, if [the administration] can get the War Crimes Act amended.”



  1. Not only did Coulter get slapped by a girl, she got slapped by a HOT girl, and Annie claims that they don’t exist on the Left. From her perspective, that must have been like getting her ass kicked by a unicorn and a leprechaun.

  2. Gentlemen,

    I saw the whole thing . All the left wing bitch ( setting in for Goofy Colmes ) did was rudely rapidfire overtalk Coulter, aided by the DNC guest. Two on one with no rules of debate is remiscent of the departed ” Crossfire ” which offered little in the way of reasoned and fair discussion. This was no bitch slapping by any means . Ann can hold her own toe to toewith best deaters. This was simply a case of a screaming out of control host shouting down the guest.
    It apparently takes very little of such clown acts for you to falsely boast your side as winning a momentary victory albiet it ever so shallow and empty.

  3. This isn’t about who won on the merits, Phred. It’s about Coulter getting a taste of her own rude medicine and whining about it. She’s not exactly the poster child for Civility on Cable-News Talk Shows.

  4. Sure, Phred – and things are going swimmingly in Afghanistan.

    Unicorns and leprechauns.

    Kicked her skinny conservative ass.
