There is much that is amusing over at NRO today.
There is Doughy Pantload on D-Cup Hugh:
For reasons I’m not entirely sure I understand, several readers think I said Hugh Hewitt is dishonest. I didn’t. I wrote “One can call Hugh Hewitt a dishonest and hackish partisan (which I am not doing), but let us not slander dishonest hacks by saying they are no better than Sid Blumenthal.”
If for whatever reason that sounds unfair to Hewitt, I apologize. As I thought I made clear, I wasn’t calling him a dishnoest hack. I was saying that even if you think he is one, that still makes him a far better man than Sid Blumenthal.
Hewitt – dishonest partisan hack.
Blumenthal – More dishonester, partisanier, and hackier.
Then John Miller teases us with the possibilities of the “top 50 conservative rock songs of all time“:
What makes a great conservative rock song? The lyrics must convey a conservative idea or sentiment, such as skepticism of government or support for traditional values. And, to be sure, it must be a great rock song. Weâ€™re biased in favor of songs that are already popular, but have tossed in a few little-known gems. In several cases, the musicians are outspoken liberals. Others are notorious libertines. For the purposes of this list, however, we donâ€™t hold any of this against them. Finally, it would have been easy to include half a dozen songs by both the Kinks and Rush, but weâ€™ve made an effort to cast a wide net. Who ever said diversity isnâ€™t a conservative principle? ...
For the record, using the expression “rock on!” is de facto evidence that John Miller has at least one Richard Marx CD in his collection, a Quarterflash 1981 Harden My Heart Tour t-shirt in his closet, and children who privately cringe when their friends come over and Dad wants to “hang out” and “rap” with them.
Finally Katherine Jean Lopez, or K-Lo to the uninitiated, a woman who presumably met men and spoke with them when she attended college, writes (in all seriousness. Seriously! I’m not making this up) this:
When the Duke story broke, I reflexively thought, looking beyond the (big) rape allegation: â€œWhy are college guys having stripper drunken parties? Thatâ€™s conduct unbecoming sensible young men.”
Never has hilarious and sad been so connected in such a deep, mysterious and unexplainable way.
It’s like looking into the face of God. And He’s laughing too.
