Innumeracy Strikes!

From an article on sales of the Clinton tome:

The price at both stores was $21, or 30 percent off the $35 cover price; the audio book, read by the author himself, was $24.50.

In fact, the book was 40% off the cover price.

Blogging Update

I will continue posting to Brainster's but the political race is heating up, so I will have far more posts on my political blog for most of the summer.

Another Hero

Sometimes you read these stories and you just shake your head in amazement.



Meet Private Dwayne Turner, a combat medic in Iraq.

"I moved to (my vehicle) just before the first grenade came over the wall," Turner said. "The blast threw me even further into the vehicle, and I took on some shrapnel."

Ignoring his own injuries, Turner ran to the front of his vehicle and saw a soldier with eye injuries.

"I checked him out, and tried to get him into a building," Turner said. The other two medics established a triage system under the cover of a building while Turner ran back outside to bring more soldiers into the makeshift clinic.

"I just started assessing the situation, seeing who was hurt, giving them first aid and pulling them into safety," he said, downplaying his actions on that day.

Turner, his legs wounded by shrapnel in the initial attack, was shot at least twice while giving first aid to the soldiers.


That is one brave soldier. Thanks Private Turner!

Stephanopolous Grills Moore

Aaron Arnwine points us to George Stephanopolous' tough questioning of fictional filmmaker Michael Moore on Sunday's This Week. Best bit:

STEPHANOPOULOS: But you're also making leaps, and by doing that, aren't you doing exactly what you accuse your opponents of doing? A lot of people have said the Bush administration looked at the raw data, looked at the raw intelligence about weapons of mass destruction, but then cherry-picked it, selectively edited it, exaggerated parts, extrapolated parts. Aren't you doing exactly the same thing?

George does let him get away with a ridiculous lie about the Bin Laden's supposed financial support for the Bush family:

MOORE: I don't blame him for that. I don't blame him for that. Hey, if you gave me $1.4 billion, I'd take your call too.

But overall he does a pretty good job of deflating the gasbag.

Dead Air America

The AP and WSJ dissect the train wreck that is Dead Air America.

Mr. Visotcky wasn't the only insider in the dark about the company's problems. Many of Air America's investors and executives say they thought the network had raised more than $30 million, based on assurances from its owners, Guam-based entrepreneurs Evan M. Cohen and Rex Sorensen. In fact, Air America had raised only $6 million, Mr. Cohen concedes. Within six weeks of the launch, those funds had been spent and the company owed creditors more than $2 million.

What a shock! Liberals don't know how to run a business? Not without government subsidies, apparently.

Cited for Breaking the Christmas in Cambodia story (at Kerry Haters):

Hugh Hewitt: KerryHaters was on this story a long time ago. How could the elite media not have asked these questions before now?

Ankle-Biting Pundits: Our friends Pat and Kitty at Kerry Haters deserve the blog equivalent of a Pulitzer for their coverage of Kerry's intricate web of lies regarding Vietnam.
