A Holiday Tradition Continues

Posted on | December 24, 2012 | 24 Comments

“We lost. We are losers. . . . Our operatives are incompetent and we live in a dream world.”
Rob Long of National Review, in an interview with Joe Hagan of New York magazine during a Caribbean cruise in November

Readers expect “Christmas Cheesecake” from us this time year and what kind of conservative would I be if I did not maintain this tradition?

Last year’s round-up was entitled, “Behold, I Bring You Peace, Goodwill, and Also This Gratuitous Vintage Pinup Girl.” Nothing quite so cheers up despondent bloggers the way a pretty girl does, unless maybe it’s a blizzard of round-up linkage:

You know what this means? She’s a genius!

Merry Christmas, everybody!

    Merry Christmas everyone!

    When even Perez Hilton is bitch slapping Piers Morgan, you know it is bad…

    Didn’t Piers Morgan get caught altering photographs during Abu Graib to make them look worse? That is how he ended up on the entertainment side of things–he was drummed out of real news coverage.

    The explanation is that both organs are largely composed of fat. Therein lies the justification for my waistline.

    If I wuz a Brit, I wouldn’t want Piers back either. They prolly heaved a very heavy sigh of relief when his plane was finally over the Atlantic headed west bound.

    Why don’t we deport him to some place like Buna, New Guinea. They prolly won’t like him either, but at least he will stand out and they’ll have an easier time avoiding him. And, more importantly, he won’t be here.
