Nightly Ramble Monday

Welcome one and all to the most intense nightly read anywhere on the ‘sphere; The BitsBlog Nightly Ramble


  • NOW WE”RE BACK TO GLOBAL COOLING: So says the Daily Mail. [2]The amazing thing is the AGW crowd still hasn’t admitted they got it wrong and nobody’s called them out on it.
  • CONGRESS’ WASTEFUL SPENDING IN COPENHAGEN: CBS News has made note of it finally.Given the whole thing is a farce anyway, as demonstrated by the first item today, may I suggest that the whole freakin’ thing is a waste?
  • SARAH  A AT FOX? According to TV BY THE NUMBERS [3] Sarah Palin will be working at Fox as a contributor.
  • OIL NEAR $84/BBL: as of today
  • 20 MOST ANNOYTING LIBERALS OF 2009Right Wing News has unleashed The 8th Annual “20 Most Annoying Liberals of 2009?. [4]
    Just to give you a little taste, first off, here are the honorable mentions for the list:
    Joy Behar, Barbara Boxer, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Anderson Cooper, Chris Dodd, Maureen Dowd, Dick Durbin, Thomas Friedman, Glenn Greenwald, Maurice Hinchey, Arianna Huffington, Jesse Jackson, Hank Johnson, John Kerry, Ezra Klein, Paul Krugman, Pat Leahy, Rachel Maddow, Bill Maher, Michael Moore, MoveOn, Lawrence O’Donnell, Markos Moulitas, Clarence Page, The New York Times, Ted Rall, Charlie Rangel, Rick Sanchez, Shep Smith, Pete Stark, John Stewart
    Also, here’s a sample entry for #4, Barney Frank.
    Barney Frank: He’s an utterly corrupt, nasty tempered, frighteningly incompetent, toweringly arrogant, prissy little [email protected] whose only quasi-redeeming qualities are a gift for lying that would make a professional con man blush and a sort of ugly charm most associated with drunken frat boys picking on hapless underclassmen for the amusement of their friends. Naturally, given that he exemplifies all the worst qualities that people hate about Congress, Frank has been in office since 1980 and will probably remain there until he’s a doddering old codger whose aides have to wave the vultures away to keep him from being mistakenly carried off. Thanks a lot, Massachusetts! First Ted Kennedy, now this creep.
    Defining Quote: On what planet do you spend most of your time? Ma’am, trying to have a conversation with you would be like trying to argue with a dining room table. I have no interest in doing it. —Barney Frank [5], to one of his constituents at a Town Hall meeting

  • DEFENDING THE INDEFENSIBLE: Apparently the Democrats know they’re in trouble with Harry Reid.  They’ve begun circling the wagons. [6]
  • DEFENDING THE INDEFENSIBLE II: Ben Smith says [7]they’re calling in the big guns to try and save Kennedy’s Senate Seat.Ya see despite the crowing from The Globe about a 15 point lead, their candidate is losing. Michelle suggests Andy Stern will Tunnel out of the MTA somewhere [8] shortly to bolster that effort.
  • A SEX ROBOT? Ok, I guess. [9]Is it just me or is there something terminally geeky about that?
  • HITLER IN CONTEXT? One can only wonder what the marvelously addled brain of a Oliver Stone would consider to be the proper context to view Hitler in [10]. On the other hand, he also suggests that he could empathize with Stalin [10].  How many drugs must one take to arrive at the very special place that Oliver Stone is in today?  For that matter, do I really wanna know the answer that question?
