Rule 5 Sunday: Away From Home

— compiled by Wombat-socho Having wasted most of my Sunday (listening to baseball and slaving over the hot pixels of wargame software), it is now time to consider the handiwork of God, as Lewis Grizzard once said before heading down for a tour of Atlanta’s strip clubs.

Troglopundit Is Not Only an Acromegalic Sideshow Freak, But Is Also Wrong

My friend Lance Burri was once famous as the second ugliest conservative blogger in Wisconsin. That was before Sean Hackbarth and his ludicrous hipster soul-patch moved to Washington, D.C., however, and the Towering Man-Mountain of Cheeseland has since ascended to the pinnacle.
