TILTPAT-BIDHAT4 (040708, Evening)

Filed under: TILTpatBIDHAT — Tom @ 6:49 pm

The acronym stands for “Things I‘d Like To Post About Today; But I Don’t Have Any Time For (4).”


Here goes:

  • From Powerline — The Minneapolis (Red) Star Tribune’s title for the AP employment-report story I criticized on Friday was “Pink Slip Nation.” As I noted, green slips outnumbered pink slips by 574,000 in March.
  • Captain Ed at Hot Air — “Post-war Germany took a decade of occupation.” Do you think they teach this in elementary and high school history? Do they even know which war is being referred to?
  • Michelle Malkin (my headline) — “Absolut-ly Out of Control”
  • From AP (Ten days old, shouldn’t be forgotten) — “Obama suggests ex-pastor is contrite.” Sorry, pal. No surrogate apologies accepted. That’s about 20 miles short of the required complete and abject repudiation of Black Liberation Theology (which isn’t coming anyway, so who’s kidding who?).
  • Another somewhat old one from Michelle Malkin not to be forgotten — (my title) “Chicago’s South Side Collection of Cracked-up Clerics”
  • Allah at Hot Air — “Time reporter in Baghdad: Every Iraqi I know is praying for a McCain victory.” I wonder why?
  • Sun-Times Blogs’ Lynn Sweet — “Obama did NOT ‘hold the title’ of a University of Chicago law school professor.” (inside Ohio observation) Jean Schmidt’s detractors are strangely silent over a much greater resume infraction.
  • Mark Steyn, on the Hillary 2012 strategy — “Even if she can’t win, she can deny victory to Obama, and to her party. As they say in showbusiness, it’s not important for me to succeed, only for my friends to fail.”
  • Two feet of snow in Minnesooooota? In April? Well, it is supposed to be a year of global cooling (ha).
  • Lori Gunter, in the Edmonton Journal yesterday — “Will Commonwealth oust Mugabe? He stole the last two elections and lost last weekend’s vote; he must go now.” It would be impressive if that happened. I doubt it will.
  • Greenspan Endorses McCain — Thanks, Al. I meant for the housing slump, and (to an extent) the dot-com bubble. What, you thought I meant the McCain endorsement?
