The li’lest moonbat, and other Friday links

posted at 8:08 pm on May 12, 2006 by Allahpundit

I feel like the bad student who, instead of getting to go on the field trip, had to stay behind in class all day writing on the blackboard.

Just a few more lines to go on this welcome Friday eve.

  • You find Michael Moore’s cartoon Marxism and fondness for cheap media stunts appealing, but his personality rubs you the wrong way. You enjoy Anderson Cooper’s cuddly blandness and mawkish sentimentality, but aren’t sure enough about his progressive politics. If only there was some way to combine the best qualities from both men…
  • The British are disappearing. The Germans are disappearing. The Russians are disappearing. The Japanese are disappearing. And the French — damn.
  • Are you an “ugly American”? Pick up the new travel guide from Business for Diplomatic Action, “Behaving Like a Minimally Civilized Person for Dummies.”
  • Dalrymple was right.
  • A treat for only the most hardcore Mark Steyn fans: the man behind the decision to let women work in (gasp!) lingerie shops in Saudi Arabia is none other than Ghazi Algosaibi.
  • Quick and dirty — the world’s weirdest diseases.
  • Buzz Aldrin shows the guys at “Screw Loose Change” how to deal with conspiracy theorists.
  • Science mini-roundup: a car that changes shape to brace for impending impacts, and light that moves so fast it actually goes … backwards?
  • And finally, from the unnecessary-yet-gratifying discoveries file, monkeys know how to party.

I’m off to engage in some monkey business myself. Enjoy your weekend!

Justify capitalism in 3 words or less?

“I hate socialism.”

I think the French birth rate has more to do with the large minority of Muslims. I don’t have any numbers, but it’s worth checking out. Take out Muslim births, and the figure would be much lower than 1.9.

Really much more interesting and harder hitting than the schlup on the C. Matthews “Hardball! show! A much cuter host too! Also, she’s much more polite, while being very astute, than the Softball pitcher!

Seriously, it must have been perfect hell to have been kept off that fascinating road trip Friday! But, then since Allahpundit (PBNUH) is otherwise Godlike to his few worshipers, everyplace can be perfect hell.

That makes sense. Steyn dubbed Ghazi’s novel “erotic, in a sublimated kind of way.”

“Who did you exploit Today”

Well isn’t that ironic. Now who’s doing the exploiting here. Maybe this little tot ought to “axe” the adults who put her up to this, and I use that term “adults” loosely, who’s really being exploited.

I like the Ebonics touch also – cute kid but when will they teach these idiots to pronounce the word “ask” properly? I’m sure this little girls has “axed” her teachers many similar questions, since public schools are on the top of the list of exploiters.

Hmm. Maybe she should go axe Jesse Jackson who HE has exploited today. Bet he has a bigger list than anyone she asked on camera.

Who’s exploiting HER? And did you notice that everyone she stopped was white?

KC on May 13, 2006 at 12:04 PM

But you must admit it – she’s smart and cute. We don’t have to agree with the way she has been “programmed”.

Great – that little girl is a budding Cynthia McKinney. She’s been watching too much CNN.

Way to go Buzz.

Do an internet search on Buzz Aldrin + Punch and you’ll find more background on the incident.

Check this out.
This report from Islamicphobic and Phil Hendrie’s comedy talk show – with video by Sugiero

From the interview. Some of the grievances.

“Democracy is something they (Muslims) aren’t comfortable with.”

“And why can’t we do something about homosexuals?”

More grievances – Hinduism, Jews, music, representative art – and at the end, Hendrie makes the little leftist dhimmi cry as he decribes the tragedy or Iraq.

The li’lest moonbat is the perfect metaphor, really, for the left and its juvenile posturing: theatre passing for analysis.

I’m sticking it to The Man by taking an extra long lunch and using company internet access for personal web use!
