Lucky Dawg Gnaws on a Bone
Note: Neither of these blogs has permalinks, so if you come across the story awhile from now, you may have to do some scrolling.
Our buddy Chris at Lucky Dawg
got a pretty good scoop last Friday that Kitty linked to over at Lifelike
. A Los Alamos labs whistleblower got beat up outside a nudie bar and claimed it was retaliation for his whistle-blowing activities. Chris looked into it and discovered it was just a case of a guy having too much to drink at the bar, getting into an altercation in the parking lot, and having his face rearranged as a result.
Well, the poorly named "Best of the Blogs" got hold of it, and managed to turn it into an attack piece
on Heather Wilson, a local (Republican of course) congresswoman (scroll down to "Los Alamos, Argentina". Really, this post has to be read to be believed, as this excerpt shows:Strange things happen when your top lab is located right in an area that boasts the highest heroin overdose rate in the nation. This story cuts both ways... The right says one thing. The left has their take. One thing’s for sure. The Trustees of the University of California (with help from Feinstein, Boxer and Jane “in harm’s way” Harman and maybe even Willie Brown) are in a Steel Cage Death Match with lil’ red state darlings Lockheed-Martin for control of crown jewel in our nation’s empire of fumble, bumble and boom, The Los Alamos National Labs (a subset of the Lawrence-Livermore National Labs, run by them fuggin commos in Berkeley… that’s in California, for the geographically challenged).
That's a lotta snark for just one paragraph, and it goes on that way with talk about Wilson being a "repiglet" and a carpetbagger from New York (Chris writes that she's actually from New Hampshire). Chris fires back today
