Bob Owens vs Greg Sargent

Earlier this week, Bob Owens Laid The Smackdown on WaPo's Greg Sargent in regard to gun control.

In any event, Sargent came out against tonight and challenged me with what Instapundit himself noted was an ad feminam argument.

@bob_owens @instapundit @brithume Is the Oklahoma woman who shot an intruder a threat to the Constitution, too? washingtonpost.com/blogs/plum-lin…

— Greg Sargent (@ThePlumLineGS) February 5, 2013

I responded to Sargent that I’d come around to his way of thinking: photo ID and background checks should be required to exercise all sorts of rights.

.@theplumlinegs Have you not been paying attention? I’ve revised my position. I’m pro- photo ID/background checks, for guns AND voting now.

— Bob Owens (@bob_owens) February 5, 2013

.@theplumlinegs you know, for logical consistency.

— Bob Owens (@bob_owens) February 5, 2013

.@theplumlinegs You have to agree: one right is no more sacred than another. Background checks for all, for every “right.” It’s only fair.

Sargent's response evidently was..........crickets chirping.

How To Get Out Of A DUI

I really don't think this will work here in the States but hey, you never know. 'High Tolerance' Cited In Man's Drunk Driving Win.

He claimed, however, that he didn't feel under the influence at all while driving to work.

He also blamed the glögg for putting him so far over the limit, but pleaded with the court that he shouldn't be convicted because he thought the traditional Swedish mulled wine he had been drinking was simply an alcohol-free variety.

The court agreed, stating in its ruling that as the man drinks alcohol every day, even before heading to work, he must have a high tolerance for alcohol, Skånskan wrote.

The court therefore threw out the charges altogether and the man was set free.

Boot Phone

What the...? These Boots Were Made For Talkin'. I guess whoever is gettin' stomped can dial 911 for assistance.

Beer Power

Behold, the power of beer. Beer Will Help Power Alaska Brewery. At least the $500K in Federal grant money that helped design this went to something that is useful. And tasty.

Hunting Equals Murder?

Of course it is NPR that asks the question, When We Hunt, Do We Murder? Bet you won't see an article that asks if abortion is murder.

Doggeh Video

Man, this doggeh has a guilty conscience. He's always checking his six when he hears the fart.
