By the way

As my wife has pointed out (er, in another context...) I really do have a long refractory period. So after I reached a sort of pinnacle of blogasm around the time of the Jan 23rd election, I needed to take some time off. In doing so, I avoided commenting on Emerson (my bottom line: close to irrelevant, and occupied too many column inches for too long), Fortier (ditto), cartoon violence (death-worship takes us all another step closer to the abyss; honour and thanks to Ezra Levant for doing what every newspaper and magazine in Canada should have done), and Gretzky betting scandals (you're kidding, right? Gambling is still a crime??). Not to mention a Hamas victory (clarifies things for some people, no doubt) and Dick Cheney shooting his friend (regrettable for all involved, of course, but intrinsically funny and uniquely American).

I'll try to post more frequently in the next while.

In the meantime, look at these sitcom ideas for Mohammed. Hilarious. Probably NSFW in Canada, mind you.

This is a perfect example of why I don't link to Bourque

His unique "I-was-a-Red-Tory-when-Red-Tories-weren't-cool" worldview really pisses me off. His second rate "same-links-as-Drudge-but-12-hours-later" news aggregation I can do without. But what really gets my goat is the sense that, in reading Bourque, I am consuming the web equivalent of microwaved McDonald's coffee: it's nasty, it's bitter, and it frankly wasn't that good when it was fresh.

Here is today's banner headline:


Classy. I mean, honestly: was he drunk when he posted that?

Hello? Hello? Can we get some N in here?
