Somebody’s Gearing Up For A HUGE Party

Someone in Georgia is apparently planning on hosting a kegger for a small division [HT: my wife].
Thieves took tractor-trailers loaded with beer and swiped the suds twice within the past week, authorities said.
Dougherty County authorities are investigating a report of a missing 53-foot-long trailer that was loaded with more than 2,300 cases of […]

Thompson: A Real Bartlet Man

Speaking of Thompson, his sense of humor (which seemed absent after wonderfully wicked pre-campaign bits such as this) is really starting to come out. I love his response to the AP’s question about the candidates favorite President from the other party. Predictably the Democrat’s all chose Teddy Roosevelt, the Republicans leaned toward Truman. Fred steps […]

The Thompson Surge!-Updated

According to Matt Lewis:
Anyone watching Iowa had better not write Fred Thompson off just yet …
Why?
Matt points me to this column:
But after a sluggish start, Thompson has sensed an opening in Iowa, and he’s moving decisively to exploit it. The opening arises from a combination of Romney’s changes of position on social issues and Huckabee’s […]

Bad Santa

Thaddeus Tremayne sees potential legal troubles for St. Nick in the UK:
A frosty reception awaits Santa Claus in Britain this year. It seems that the much-loved benefactor of children everywhere is, in fact, suspected of being guilty of a number of illegal practices.
The jolly fatman’s employment practices are demanding particular scrutiny:
The Equality Commission has also […]

Blast From The Fashion Past

The linked post is a couple of months old, but the thoughts are yours to treasure for a lifetime.
Remembering the ’70’s:
Last weekend I put an exhaust fan in the ceiling for my wife’s grandfather. After a bunch of hours spent in The Hottest Attic In The Universe, he had a ceiling fan that […]

Death Has Never Been So Sexy

I learned in Shakespeare 101 that many mentions of “death” were really a wink and a nod to the peanut gallery alluding to an orgasm (from the French le petit mort). Consequently, the actor on stage could be professing his everlasting love for some lovely young lass, declaring how he would die without her, […]

It’s Time To Chase The Donuts!

Drunk driving isn’t funny. That is unless your name is Warren G. Whitelightning, you’re drunk, you’ve stolen eight giant red hot pickled sausages from a convenience store, and then you decide to take a Krispy Kreme truck for a joy ride. Soon, you have both University of Wisconsin police and Madison’s finest on your tail–which, […]

Hugo Chavez: Genius!

From E. Frank Stephenson:
From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez thinks it’s curtains for America as a world power. “By the crash of the dollar,” he says, “America’s empire will crash.”Tyler Cowen’s suggestion that currencies are not markers of economic success notwithstanding, I hope Chavez’s theory that declining currencies signal the end of regimes […]

The Housing Crisis

I think this explains it better than I have, at least it is more entertaining:

Joisey Quagmire

A low level civil war slash insurgency is plaguing New Jersey, and some say that there is little we can do about it. Law enforcement has all but given up:
The strategy sounds almost illogical: Detectives in New Jersey are being urged to build criminal cases with as few witnesses as possible. Or with none […]

CBS News Writers To Go On Strike

I’m guessing this is a sympathy strike in support of the one going on in Hollywood:
CBS News writers, producers and editors voted to authorize their labor union to call a strike after working without a contract for two years.
About 81 percent of the nearly 300 CBS members of the Writers Guild of America voted to […]

Evidence for a deity?- Updated with Video and a link Bleg!

Update: Michael has been talking some smack. He has laid down a challenge. He calls it tits versus snits. His coverage of Reid’s machinations on the war, versus my attention to Salma’s breasts. Which is unfair, he has an Instapundit link. So I am asking Glenn Reynolds to rectify this so we can find out, […]

Slippery Slope

I guess “man bites dog” is just too normal nowadays:
NEW DELHI - A man in southern India married a female dog in a traditional Hindu ceremony as an attempt to atone for stoning two other dogs to death — an act he believes cursed him — a newspaper reported Tuesday.
P. Selvakumar married the […]

Cracked Toys

Hat Tip: Tyler
Please run through this list of baffling toys. Please leave responses. People who understand Japan are especially encouraged to leave comments. I need to understand the fascination with poop.
This is a practice stripper poll, that was yanked from toy store shelves in the U.K. last year when some fussy killjoys questioned whether […]

News Brief, Caribou Edition

Cross-posted to The Conjecturer.
Defense & the War

While recognizing the horror of Blackwater’s atrocities being so common they’re… common, Mountain Runner points out the very real, very messy problems that arise when the Iraqis start to raid contractor compounds. As he said, “Phase out contractors or bring under our wings, don’t let them hang outside because […]

I Didn’t Know High School Kids Were So Smart

We are apparently a couple of reading levels below QandO.

I’m thinking that the writing here at ASHC is so clear and understandable that all you need is a high school education to comprehend it … yeah, that’s the ticket ;)

Footwear Follies — A Continuing Saga

The hits just keep on rollin’. It seems that the Boi from Brazil (you know the one who wrote that outstanding bestseller “How Would A Patriot Act?” — apparently they move to another country) has noticed little ole us in his latest diatribe. Take it away Glenn!:
For those reasons [the ones detailed in […]

These Old Hands

Many people suggest that we should listen to the wise council of the International Relations experts rather than ideologues who don’t understand how things work. I will not deny that is possibly usually true, but my own experience is that it is not necessarily true.

Russ Feingold Unveils Anti-War Strategery

Sen. Russ Feingold writing at The Huffington Post (HT: Confederate Yankee):
Over in Iraq, our troops get up every day and risk their lives in the middle of an Iraqi civil war. They have to do their job, no matter what the risk, and no matter what the cost. They do what they are asked to […]

The “Bull Moose of Climate Change” reminds me of “A Modest Proposal”

I sauntered over to Instapundit today and noticed this story:
Norway is concerned that its national animal, the moose, is harming the climate by emitting an estimated 2,100 kilos of carbon dioxide a year through its belching and farting.Norwegian newspapers, citing research from Norway’s technical university, said a motorist would have to drive 13,000 kilometers in […]

You’ve seen LOLcats. Then there was loldogs and lolhamsterz. Now there are even lolterrorists (or lolterizt if you prefer). So it seemed to me that the next logical progression was lolpolitishunz:
