Driscoll vs NY Times & other fun things

Driscoll vs NY Times & other fun things November 18, 2009

This is really very good. Head over to Pajamas Media and take a look at Ed Driscoll laying out how hap-hap-happy the NY Times has always been to celebrate the state, and statism.

I do love to see alternative media bite the ankles of the media establishment, particularly these days, when a paper like the Washington Post can publish something as lazy, cliche-ridden and vapid as this so-called “review” call it “journalism.”

But I’m just in a cranky mood about that execrable “review” and the fact that the “reviewer” has WH press credentials and regular WaPo bylines. But really, I should be use to it; we’ve been reading “so-called” journalism from la belle pathetique for all these years, after all.

And, the NY Times does have some helpful do-ahead recipes for Thanksgiving, so that’s something.

Meanwhile, don’t miss Driscoll.

Some more interesting/fun reads:
Roger L. Simon describes this condemnation of Obamacare by the dean of Harvard Medical School as “a haymaker.”

You don’t hear a fine old cultural word like “haymaker,” anymore. Now, the big words are “unfriend and “teabagger.”

Is Obama going to fire himself? Hey, who said he doesn’t love America?

Obama has had a very chilly, nay, epic fail trip to China, where what I like to call “ObamaSpend” is even making them uncomfortable. The number of countries overwhelmed with his wonderfulness and therefore giddy with America-love continues to diminish, but given his love of the grave, historic photo-ops, I somehow doubt he’s going anywhere, voluntarily.

Michelle Obama, not “yet” beloved in China. The article, which is often unintentionally funny (and sad), assumes that if the Chinese were just exposed to Mrs. Obama, they too would be enthralled by the “rock star couple,” and share in the “fascination” with Michelle Obama.

Question: Are you “fascinated” by Michelle Obama? I think she’s a so-so dresser, she has nice kids and I liked her WH garden, but I wouldn’t say I’m “fascinated.” Are you?

An Audio Plague of Frogs? It sounds like raw chicken breasts thrown onto the ground.

Most transparent Administration evah and all their certifiably bogus numbers.

Okay, so this isn’t actually fun: the Health Care Rationing Commission. “Experts,” you know.

Jobs “Created or Saved” in Congressional Districts that don’t really exist.

Living in a big house, with a huge carbon footprint, Thomas Friedman tells why you and I should not do the same.

I do love imagining Dick Cheney quotes, though.

Another video: Makes me want to get my son on a train, not a plane for Thanksgiving.

Stupidity & Bigotry, all tied up in one Congressperson: and saying, in essence, Catholic Bishops and the rest of those believers shouldn’t have anything to say about policy, especially not when it interferes with abortion, abortion, abortion. That’s ’cause in the minds of some of these fools, when you become a believer, you should be made to give up your right to, you know, have an opinion and freely voice it.

Boy, that constitution is such a pain in the tuchas, for some.

Speaking of which, there goes privacy. Seems to me that left or right, coming or going, we have issues.

Finally, do not miss Bill Whittle’s video take-down of the upcoming “showtrial of the century” in NYC. Bring the kiddies, make popcorn, it’s a disaster film in the making.
