Blogwars: Patterico vs. Greenwald, Ellensburg, Ellers, and Ellison

posted at 2:26 pm on February 28, 2007 by Allahpundit

He reserves most of his ire for those first three, but don’t worry. Ellison’s day will come.

Wuzzadem’s having fun with him, too. There’s something about GG that brings out the best in both of them. Probably it’s a simple matter of pegging the outrage meter high enough to unlock the creative impulse. Hypocrisy, egomania, apparent deceit, and stupendous sanctimony, all served cold in turgid, humorless prose: how could they resist, really?

In fairness, though, Gleen’s gotten a bit of a bad rap on this. Some lefties are positively overjoyed that Cheney’s okay.

Exit question: If the baby tigers and orangutans can get along, why can’t we?

Any way you slice it, that’s a cute picture.

I heard Ellison doesn’t like tigers…or orangutans. Filthy specieist!

major john on February 28, 2007 at 2:56 PM

Awwwww…Allah, you’re turning into such a softy.

That is some high-quality smackdown that Patterico laid down.

In 2 years the tigers will simply call the orangutans LUNCH!

See how the tigers get along with the monkeys in about a year.

Sometimes it is just best to wipe out (via force, education, economically) the lot of trouble-makers and let the void be filled by more reasonable people.

I bet the Saudis are terrified of the day we perfect non-fossil fuel vehicles, not even China and India can be relied on as long as the US has been forced to deal with the oil ticks.

Considering these tigers are not yet old enough for solid food might have something to do with it.

That picture is absolutely adorable. That one chimp looks like he is going to blow bubbles – just like my little granddaughter!

Even by Greenwald’s usual standards … that’s some pretty impressive hypocrisy.

Now pass the cheese-flavored popcorn.

Head butt’n contest. .
after awhile, who was right and who was wrong has been
forgotten. Its all about who is still standing.

Once those orangutans learn how to bang on a keyboard, Greenwald has himself some competition.

JammieWearingFool on February 28, 2007 at 5:21 PM

I am Greenwalds.

Resistance is futile.

Your blog, as it has been, is over.

From this time forward, you will get your comments from us.

The tigers have no idea the trouble they are in for.

B Moe on February 28, 2007 at 6:53 PM

Sure the baby aniumals are very cute, but a banjo-playing sockpuppet…..priceless!

KelliD on March 1, 2007 at 10:06 AM

oops…that’s animals.

KelliD on March 1, 2007 at 10:23 AM

If the baby tigers and orangutans can get along, why can’t we?

Did your ‘we’ mean to be:

- us, here on HA?
- you and us?
- liberals vs. conservatives?
- Islamists vs. the rest of the world?
- peaceniks and neocons?
- Sullivan and the conservatives?
- wolves and lambs?
- cats and mice?
- etc. etc. etc?
- all of the above?
