People, this person will not be blogging for today and maybe tommorow. This is because the computer here needs to be reasoned with. I will be attempting an install of Windows 2000. Wish me luck!
Don't go crazy while I'm gone, will you?

Alterbitch Alert!
Alterbitch again proves his idiocy in today's latest post. In his so-called "factual" reply to Sullivan, Alterbitch accuses Sullivan of being a liar. While it is true that Sullivan exaggerated, (Alterbitch didn't explicitly say it, but he did suggest it between the lines), Alterbitch loses his slippery moral high ground by using the famed Prospect figure that was debunked by the great Kauster and Sullivan here. By not including a side note about how the statistics were not valid, Alterbitch shows himself to be either A) an ignorant slut, or B) a biased Alterbitch. I'll leave it to my readers to decide which one it is.
Lilek's has a sublime post on our country today.

Here are photos of the blog bash that I went to.
Ender's Game is one of my favorite books of all time. The mix of science fiction, morality, politics, and free will combine to make a reading experience that no one ever forgets. So imagine my pleasure when I find out that Orson Scott Card, the author of Ender's Game, writes online, and he writes sublime columns like this one. Visit it post-haste.
Sir, I hape to break it to you, but this is not news. Anyway, this person seems to be showing the Democrat behaivior of "They're conservatives, so they can't be trusted at all!". (Mind you, conservatives can be guilty of this as well. It's just that it isn't as prevalent in their statements.) The person advocates that the Book of Revelations is the only reason that conservatives support Israel, meaning that it is only because of their "fundamentalist" beliefs that they are supporting the Jews. While that probably is true for a good portion of the supporters, the author here never cites any statistics about conservatives as a whole, and never really looks hard at the issue. The huge support for Israel might be because conservatives are super wary of Europe, wary about Arabs, or like access to the Holy sites in Israel. Instead of actually writing something worth reading, the author is content to label a huge group of people as something to be afraid of. Perhaps he ought look at (god forbid) some actual opinion papers of the conservative movement before writing something like this.
Also: What is inheretly wrong with the conservative position? The author declines to explain that as well.
A list of permanent links will be forth coming soon.

Apology: A few weeks ago, I attacked Eric Alterman for his supposed bias against Jews when he attacked Israel. However, I just found out today that Eric is Jewish himself. I thus apologize for my stupidity. That doesn't mean Eric is not going to be attacked later. This just means I was wrong, and I will try to prevent it from happening again.
I have a feeling that if the Republicans play their cards right, they can hammer the Democrats out of the senate. With both the famous descision about the pledge being unconstitutional, and the Supreme Court descision on vouchers, the Republicans have both a greater claim on the majority of Americans, and a way to brutally take the black vote away from the Democrats, since the majority of black voters really, really, like the idea of vouchers. Combined with the trend of Jews to start having a 40-60% ratio of Repub's to Democrats, instead of the traditional 25-75% ratio, the Democrats have a preety bad situation on their hands. Unless they start changing their strategy, the Democrats could be faced with another 80's period of irrelevance to the debate.

Will you look at that. If this many people are brave enough to march openly against the PLO, Arafat's days are numbered. Hey fella, there are some nice grave sites. I have a feeling you might want to arrange one preety quickly.
This just in: Arafat has gone fucking insane!
Thanks to Vodkapundit for the link.

I went to the Colorado Blogger Bash yesterday. I met some very cool people, including Stephen, Jeff, Doug, Matt T., and Matt Moore. And their lovely wives. I had a great time.
