    XGARBLED ARABIC SQUIGGLES? You mean

    ?????? ????????? ?? ?????? ??????

    I’m starting to think that the most charitable explanation for our approach to the Islamic State and Boko Haram is that we’re just waiting for them to have actual territory to defend — enough to make it worth our while to take it.

    Couldn’t get WordPress to do it, sorry.

    Your work and this blog software is like a wombat riding a turtle

    now there’s something ya don’t see every day!

    Wow, that Breitbart one is so good, I had to check the byline. John Hayward. I don’t know how long he’s been doing it, since I had to go to the third page of his archive there just to get to a week ago. The man is tearing it up!

    Good. He deserves a metric buttload of blowback on that stupidity.

    I notice that he’s riding backward.

  • Daniel Freeman

    He must be compiling a retrospective. You have to look back for that.

    Breitbart is finally getting some new writers that bring in their own masses of eyeballs.

    I liked the early startup folks (Nolte, Loesch, etc.), but for a long time after Andrew died, the place was not as focused on sterling writing as it seems to be now. I like the Breitbart London page, especially.

  • Daniel Freeman

    Oh, definitely. Milo Yiannopoulos’s coverage of #Gamergate has been topnotch. And look! When I went there to get the spelling of his name right, he’s covering the sci-fi version.

    I’ll definitely check that out, thanks. Delingpole is another one I try to catch every week, as well as Gerald Warner. One of our British regulars at TheRightScoop, CollieMum, recommended Warner, referring to the fact she looked forward to “Warner Wednesdays”.

    Just as a metric ton is essentially a megagram — 1000 kilograms or 1,000,000 grams — I feel confident that he has received a megabuttload of blowback. I’ve even administered a few grams myself.
