Oh, Let’s Hit It Again

I’m rolling really badly of late.

However, I will note that my favorite pundit, Andrew Sullivan (The Daily Dish) ((Note: just because he’s my favorite doesn’t mean I always agree with him. Indeed, I think I read him because I sometimes disagree with him, but he’s got an intelligent take on things, and isn’t afraid to change his mind. Unlike some conservative pundits. Well. A lot of conservative pundits, it seems, these days.)) has finally linked to my favorite semi-pundit SF writer, John Scalzi (Whatever). In particular, to this post:

I think some people are under the impression that the White House wants Fox News to disappear. Nothing, I suspect, could be further from the truth. The White House is in fact delighted that Fox News and its merry cast of commentators exists.

More at the link. It’s delightful and, as far as I can tell, true.

Another thing; Alex Massie comments on American conservatism:

Increasingly, British Tories wonder what has happened to their American relatives. It’s as if your favorite cousin had a nervous breakdown, found religion, and became an evangelist for an apocalyptic cult prophesying the imminent end of the world as we know and love it.

I just have to say: THIS.

At the moment, I have the temper of an extremely angry badger who’s had its set invaded, so I would probably rip into anyone who decided to comment in an upset, “you’re not being faaaaiiiir” manner on this post, because I have about that much patience right now. Thus I am closing comments, because blood is hard to wash out of the upholstery.

If you feel extremely slighted, go email Andrew Sullivan or comment at Scalzi’s Whatever or The Daily Beast, because I’m sure that they’ll totally not stomp on you there, whereas I will just rip your throat out, because I have no sense of humor.
