Well, that didn't take long at all... | Main | Delaware Morons, Vote for O'Donnell
September 19, 2010

Arrr, Landlubber News Bites

Ahoy, Brethren o' the Flaming Skull, it's Talk Like A Pirate Day and here's the word in dinghy-sized pieces:

Ahmadinejacket is in New York City. He's offering to return the two remaining U.S. citizen hikers in exchange for eight Iranians convicted here of violating sanctions. He also says the stories about that woman sentenced to lashes and stoning were propaganda by the American media.

Fox News has a bit of fun with Christine O'Donnell with the headline "Campaign: No Magical Explanation for O'Donnell's 'Witchcraft' Confession." According to O'Donnell's campaign, the witch video had nothing to do with her decision to back out of the Sunday shows. She wanted to attend church and a Republican Party picnic in Sussex County, which played a major role in her winning the nomination. The campaign says they didn't even know of the Maher video until Saturday afternoon.

The latest film to suggest that Boston is a deathtrap, Ben Affleck's The Town, is box office gold. Has Affleck finally earned his way back into our good graces after Pearl Harbor and Gigli? And, about Boston, eesh: Boondock Saints, The Departed, Mystic River, Gone, Baby, Gone. Movies don't lie; it's a place to run from, mateys (you thought I'd forgotten).

Finally, Legal Insurrection provides a sterling example of how not to end the intra-party feuding over O'Donnell's nomination. He's absolutely right that she's our candidate, so let's all act like it. He's absolutely a hypocrite to then slander his opponents by suggesting they opposed O'Donnell to get "high blog traffic." And he's out of his freakin' mind to then suggest that the Powerline guys or Patterico or, well, us don't want "to see our kids grow up in a nation in which the state is the servant not the master." As longtime moron It's Vintage, Duh observed to me, some people are demanding "unity" in the same sense that Democrats demand "bipartisanship."
