RAGGED Randomness

1) I guess he really is Rick James, bee-yatch! Get well soon, Dave.

2) Oh, come on, Karol.
Rich is just following in a tradition quite well-established by founder William F. Buckley. It's what has kept NR cool all these years, standing athwart history yelling, "Don't bogart that joint..." On another note, I'm sorry that you don't like the Post . Finally, Miller's show flopped, not because political comedy can't work in a televised format. It flopped because Miller suddenly stopped being funny when he came "out" as a conservative. I'm not saying that conservatives can't be funny -- I know several who do funny stand-up (and no, I'm not talking about myself). But Miller's schtick worked when he was ticked off at the world. Instead, post-9/11, he decided that the best thing that he could do would be to become George W. Bush's best buddy. It's not funny when someone whose signature act is being anti-establishment decides to pledge his allegiance to and campaign for that establishment.

3) If
this hadn't happened Wednesday afternoon, would this cover story from yesterday's USA Today have been much more broadly discussed today? Just asking.

UPDATE: So, the White House (including the First Lady, the Vice President and his wife) and the Capitol are evacuated, but no one bothers to interrupt the president of the United States in the middle of his bike ride!! Are you kidding me? After all flack the administration took after 9/11 with the 7 minutes in the school and the "My Pet Goat" BS, don't you think someone should have realized that, yes, it is a good idea for the Commander In Chief to be notified that jets have been scrambled and there is a potentially serious situation developing! Are you kidding me!?!?!?
