Clipfile - August 19, 2010

“It isn’t enough to win back power.  Conservatives and classical liberals need to do with that power what needs doing.  Our very liberties are at stake — and it will no longer do to attribute to our ideological opponents the benefit of the doubt that they are good men with whom we merely disagree.  They aren’t:  They are the architects of our country’s demise who hope to rebuild in its stead a new society wherein they take their rightful place as our ruling betters.” - Jeff Goldstein

Shredded credibility

Associating (with terrorists) Press  Dept

There are some things you get to right away!
AP, Which Can’t Issue a Stylebook Guidance To Mention Democratic Party Affliation in Stories About Democratic Lawbreaking, Issues An Important New Diktat to Reporters:
We should continue to avoid the phrase “ground zero mosque” or “mosque at ground zero” on all platforms...  The site of the proposed Islamic center and mosque is not at ground zero, but two blocks away in a busy commercial area.  We should continue to say it’s “near” ground zero, or two blocks away.
R-r-r-r-i-i-i-g-g-g-h-h-h-t.
Two common factually wrong talking points made by Ground Zero Mosque supporters in private, government and media circles are that:
-- The proposed location is not at Ground Zero, and
-- It is two blocks away.

Neither is true.  The Burlington Coat Factory, the location for the Mosque, was hit by landing gear sheared off of Flight UA 157 when it stuck the South Tower and that gear stuck the roof of the Factory.  An engine from the jet hit further beyond the Factory.  The site of the Mosque is part of Ground Zero.

Second, WTC 7 which was destroyed by the attack, is only one block [away from] the the proposed Mosque location.
Seriously, do they think people can’t factcheck this stuff?

Clipfile - August 12, 2010

“Isn’t it a shame that ‘intellectual’ has come to mean either ‘ideologically strait-jacketed psuedo-intellectual posuer’ or ‘member in good standing of the righteous-thinking better class,’ depending on your point of view?  We need a word for the smarty-pants type that doesn’t mean, well, smarty-pants.” - “Ernst Schreiber”

Smoking Gun? Try MELTED!

Data, cooked?  Dept
Hot Time In the Old Town:
Egg Harbor, Wisconsin, really got cooking this July 4th around 9:59AM, according to NOAA and Coast Watch.  It was there, at the bottom left row of the temperature data points, that the records reveal on that day a phenomenally furnace-like 600 degrees Fahrenheit.
Unanswered so far is whether the erroneous data were discarded, or if it “conveniently” found its way into global temperature models.  Oh, and by the way, northern Lake Michigan has boiled dry.
