Presented without comment ... 

Regis Philbin talks about meeting Amy Goodman at a dinner party.


The White Man's Shoah 

I wasn't planning on returning to the well deserved ridicule of Jonah Goldberg's book "Liberal Fascism" for a few days. But it is the gift that keeps on giving.

Thanks, Jonah, for the best Christmas ever!

Something has come up that must be shared with the good people of this country

One of those hatemongers - as they are called, ironically, by Bill O'Reilly - at Daily Kos wrote on essay titled "Jonah Goldberg Presents: The White Man's Shoah." It may be considered a bit offensive by some, and of course, conservatives will get all politically correct about it because this is one of those cases where it suits their opportunistic agenda. (While they maintain their silence on the whole issue of Jonah's mendacity, of course. What's the point of being a conservative if you have to be consistent? Or honorable?)

The essay takes off from Jonah's perceptive comment that "The white male is the Jew of liberal fascism." And we can perhaps glean from this that Jonah is perhaps overstating his case a bit.

And perhaps looking quite the fool.

Anyone thinking Jonah's book "has some good points"? Please share.


To be the blue-haired girl 

It is not so easy to be like the blue-haired girl.

Especially when you don't have Miss Nanaho to keep the stupid away from you.

What with the strikingly ignorant words of Jonah Goldberg and the embarrassing dumbassery of certain elements of my environment, I find I am failing miserably in my quest to be more like Miss Kanade.

It is much easier to be like Lou Grant than it is to be like Miss Kanade. Especialy when you work in a newsroom.

Perhaps I should establish a girls school with a cannon and a self-destruct button. And make myself the president of the student council. That would perhaps make it easier to be like Miss Kanade.

Be the blue-haired girl.

It is a process.

Don't beat yourself up if you don't do so well the first week.
