Best Paragraph I’ve Read All Year

by Smitty Randy Barnett’s retrospective on the ObamaCare decision buildup over at Volokh is awesome, but if you have only time for one paragraph, read this: I especially want to thank Orin Kerr for his unstinting and unflagging skepticism from day one. I admit that, at times, I found his posts personally annoying, and my […]

Garbage In, Garbage Out (GIGO) Legitimizes Obfuscation

by Smitty Daily Pundit points to GIGO and its effect on global warming research: Nobody in climate science knows what GIGO means anymore? Dude, without GIGO, the notion of catastrophic anthropogenic global warming couldn’t even exist. Which would eliminate a lucrative honeypot for a lot of “scientists.” So GIGO is a feature, not a bug.

The tweet is a literary form of Oulipian arbitrariness, and the straitjacket […]

Conspiracy Theorist ‘Qritiq’ Conspires Against Neal Rauhauser’s Targets

Neal Rauhauser at the ‘Netroots Nation’ Conference FROM AN UNDISCLOSED LOCATION How stupid does “Qritiq” think we are, huh? The day after Aaron Walker is SWATted, why would Qritiq (who, several people claim, is actually a New York City schoolteacher named Lane Lipton) decide to publish contact information clearly aimed at getting complaints lodged against […]

Spec Ops SuperPAC? Really?

by Smitty I don’t really go for concern trolls, as I was relating to Mataconis on Twitter earlier. But, as noted byhat tip to Nice Deb, there is a Rubicon being crossed when veterans as such become politicized. Granted, the one driving that politicizing is none other than #OccupyResoluteDesk himself. Incapable of leadership in any […]
