Give Us A Name, Miss Brooks

There is no way he can get away with telling a story like this and not disclosing who the Republican senator is. And note that after the groping story, Brooks starts talking about how lonely powerful people can be. Weird, very weird. But Brooks needs to disclose who this was.

Best Band You Never Heard of?

Unless you were in college around 1975, you probably never heard the German version of Emerson Lake and Palmer, but Triumvirat's Spartacus is far better than anything ELP did. It's a concept album about a revolt against the Romans by a slave and gladiator named Spartacus, as in the movie with Kirk Douglas.

They didn't have a singer like Greg Lake or an organist who could match Keith Emerson, or a drummer like Carl Palmer. And to make matters worse, they were Germans (you can hear it in some of the mistakenly stressed syllables). But what they lacked in technical chops they made up for in an album that should be on everybody's must play list.

They had a couple other terrific albums; Illusions on a Double Dimple is also highly recommended.

Greatest Song Intro Ever

I can't remember a song that started with a better hook. The "pow" about 12 seconds in is completely irresistable. The Moodys had some terrific intros: Ride My See Saw and You and Me are strong contenders.

If they had stayed together in the 1970s, I think they could have been a stadium band; they had a terrific catalog and when they reformed around 1978 they still could bring it. They just missed their wave, but at the top, they were as good as any band has ever been.

Is This Some Sort of Weird Gag?

Or is Wonkette just this clueless? Talking about Alberto Gonzales being hired at Texas Tech University:

This is definitely not what Thomas Jefferson & Ben Franklin had in mind when they founded Texas Tech University.

Given that Texas Tech was founded about 100 years after Jefferson's death and even more after Franklin's, it seems a bit of a stretch.

Unintentional Hilarity Department

Anti-Palin blogger is upset that Palin had the nerve to mention her:

Sarah Palin is a coward and a bully. What kind of politician attacks an ordinary American on the Fourth of July for speaking her mind? What’s wrong with her? The First Amendment was designed to protect people like me from the likes of people like her. Our American Revolution got rid of kings. And queens, too. Am I jacked-up? You betcha.

How dare Sarah Palin exercise her right to free speech! What kind of ordinary American attacks an politician on the Fifth of July for speaking her mind?


Why they hate Sarah Palin

Here's the best read today, written by a liberal feminist.

My take? For some of them it's nothing more than snobbery; the Mo Dowd, Andrew Sullivan, Tina Fey axis of weasels. She's not one of "us", they sniff. She went to five colleges in four years, whereas we went to Haavaad. She got married to a guy who's not in mergers and acquisitions at Goldman, or even a lawyer. She had five kids and didn't even have the decency to abort the "defective" one.

For most, it's that she's a traitor to her sex. Women are all supposed to vote Democrat, so therefore she's not really a woman. You saw similar reactions to Clarence Thomas (or indeed any black who happens to be a Republican). They're race traitors (as is Michelle Malkin; Filipinos are supposed to stick up for the Japanese).

And once the treason is revealed, who would feel the need to stick up for the traitor? Indeed at that point it's appropriate to express racism or sexism. Sarah is a bimbo; otherwise she'd been a Democrat, QED.

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.
