Matt Damon, Rhodes Scholar

You know, I actually like Matt Damon's work, especially his work in Team America: World Police. That said, his brain is apparently not functional or he has no internal irony meter.

So life is keeping busy right now, but I had to pass this along. Excerpt:


"I've been in the media for a long time, I signed up because I hate this right-wing, knuckle-dragging, imperialist system, and I would gladly sacrifice any number of my fellow Americans to advance my agenda - but this is a dumb war and a rash war," Keith Olbermann of MSNBC told The People's Cube outside a congressional office he visited to demand a government crackdown on dissidents. "Why must we in the field put our reputations on the line when this Congress has the power to simply confiscate Rupert Murdoch's assets and put Beck, Hannity, and Coulter in jail?" he demanded.

Check the DNA

Julian Sanchez links to what you'd assume is an April 1 gag column. You'd be wrong, however. In short: a girl gets slipped a date rape drug, comes to in the gutter and calls her "friend" from the hospital. Apparently something good was on TV because this "person" didn't bother to go to the hospital. Something about the bounds of acceptable friendship. Anyway, I'll let Julian respond:


Friendship? Jesus, that’s the minimum I’d do for someone I barely knew in a situation like that. Hell, it’s the minimum I’d do for someone who’d taken some drugs on purpose in an attack of poor judgment. It’s what any remotely decent, adequately socialized person would do. How on earth could you hire someone to whom this isn’t just gobsmackingly obvious to write an advice column about friendship?

James Joyner, from whom I found this story, makes the following comment:


My grad school buddy Wayne, a retired Green Beret, says that men make what he terms Bozeman, Montana friends. We may move across the country and fail to keep in touch but, if we were to get a phone call in the middle of the night from one of them after not hearing from them for three years saying, “I’m in jail in Bozeman, Montana and need you to wire me $2000,” our only question would be about how to get him the funds and we’d be on the phone to Western Union two minutes later.

Quote of the day

And it's from the fertile mind of Moxie regarding the charisma that Pawlenty exudes:


He has all the impact of dust landing on a down comforter.

Pawlenty strikes me as a decent guy and a reasonably conservative fellow. And I find the possibility of him beating Obama to be somewhat where in the neighborhood of zero. Okay, maybe next door to zero. Okay, in the same house AND sleeping in the same bed.

Better him than me

James Joyner does yeoman's work by diving into the fetid pit that Balloon Juice has become. He even links to Cole twice today (maybe yesterday- I didn't check the time/date stamp) and call's one of Cole's opinions "wrong-headed". Now I'm not disagreeing with Mr. Joyner, but calling Cole's opinions wrong-headed is not much different from stating that the sun will rise in the east.

What he said

I'm used to Glenn Reynolds' understated way of commenting on news items. Therefore I was a bit surprised by his response to something Megan McArdle said:



“You would think we’d busted him for unpaid parking tickets. The guy drugged a thirteen year old girl in order to rape her. Perhaps the French have some sophisticated, European point of view on these things that I, with my puritan ancestry, simply cannot rise to.”

Or they could just be miserable shitheels.

To quote a puppy blending monster: Heh.

What a kidder

Andy McCarthy makes the following statement which, I assume, has got to be a joke:


There are so many funky things going on with Obama and the people he surrounds himself with that it's hard to keep up. But the administration's transparent effort to squeeze artists dependent on NEA grants for support in pushing Obama's agenda is one to watch. At Powerline, John Hinderaker has a superb analysis, including consideration of the question whether criminal statutes (such as the Hatch Act) have been violated.

Needless to say, if something like this happened during the Bush administration, there would already be congressional hearings and screams for the appointment of a special prosecutor. We're about to see (yet again) how serious the Pelosi/Reid Democrats are about all that "rule of law" stuff they spout.

To be fair, I'd probably have given him/her and "A" on the test for being able to make me laugh.

Whack job moved into the dustbin of history

I've more or less ignored the preening of self-righteous prick CJ, proprietor in chief of Little Green Moonbats these last couple of years. I'd actually forgotten that his demented little blog was still over in my sidebar; I'm terrible about updating links. Well, I've finally decided to move CJ into the dustbin, as he's decided to make himself an historical footnote, a blogging cul de sac, a veritable echo chamber in which he stands waist deep in his own poo while claiming to be the Lord Ruler of the blogiverse.

A top ten list that I can get behind

Top Ten Greatest Cleavage Moments in TV History. Excerpt:


America has been patient long enough and I think it's time we all work together to make a 24-hour "Cleavage Channel" on Direct TV a reality. If we all contribute a little money or sign one of those petition things we can finally start watching quality TV shows like Battlestar Booblactica, It's Always Cleavagey In Philadelphia and everyone's favorite sports news show Cleavagecenter. For the price of a cup of coffee a day, we can finally feed our cleavage-hungry souls.


#10 Tiffani Amber Theissen (Beverly Hills 90210) - America truly enjoyed watching Kelly Kapowski grow into a woman and become "Kelly Boobwowski."

From the inestimable Camille Paglia:


Why has the Democratic Party become so arrogantly detached from ordinary Americans? Though they claim to speak for the poor and dispossessed, Democrats have increasingly become the party of an upper-middle-class professional elite, top-heavy with journalists, academics and lawyers (one reason for the hypocritical absence of tort reform in the healthcare bills). Weirdly, given their worship of highly individualistic, secularized self-actualization, such professionals are as a whole amazingly credulous these days about big-government solutions to every social problem. They see no danger in expanding government authority and intrusive, wasteful bureaucracy. This is, I submit, a stunning turn away from the anti-authority and anti-establishment principles of authentic 1960s leftism.

How has "liberty" become the inspirational code word of conservatives rather than liberals?
...
But affluent middle-class Democrats now seem to be complacently servile toward authority and automatically believe everything party leaders tell them. Why? Is it because the new professional class is a glossy product of generically institutionalized learning? Independent thought and logical analysis of argument are no longer taught. Elite education in the U.S. has become a frenetic assembly line of competitive college application to schools where ideological brainwashing is so pandemic that it's invisible. The top schools, from the Ivy League on down, promote "critical thinking," which sounds good but is in fact just a style of rote regurgitation of hackneyed approved terms ("racism, sexism, homophobia") when confronted with any social issue. The Democratic brain has been marinating so long in those clichés that it's positively pickled.

She also adds some withering fire into the side of the GOP, which it well deserves.
