  1. Question: How come H&R was so much snappier with the coverage of the Myanmar troubles than the Pakistan troubles?

  2. It’s a weekend. The Burmese don’t know about the American News Cycle so they scheduled their civil right violations at the wrong time of the week. The Pakistani’s on the other hand, wise in both the ways of the west, and time zone differences…

    Oh Hell, I can only spew b/s nonsense for so long. I have no friggin’ idea. Did anyone really expect free honest elections in Pakistan, anyway?

  3. crimethink –

    this bio might have had something to do with it.

  4. Howley just refused to admit that Greg Gutfeld actually exists. Oh, wait, that was something else.

    It’s odd how Reason tries to downplay, or just ignores, serious issues like TheNAU, the NAFTASuperhighway, and the LawOfTheSeaTreaty. If I didn’t know that they pretend to be libertarians I might think they were committed globalists instead.

  5. I’m sure they care what you think, LoneWacko.

  6. You know, you don’t have to accept…

  7. Maybe it’s because I’m watching an Alex Jones crapfest on cable access, and can’t respond to that, but…

    DUDE, INTERSTATES (AS IN SUPERHIGHWAYS) ALREADY GO FROM THE MEXICAN TO THE CANADIAN BORDERS. LOOK AT

  8. Crap it is a conspiracy! My tags were eaten by the illuminati and trilaterals!

    what I wanted to say is

    LOOK AT THIS:
    http://tinyurl.com/2m7dxt, MAROON!

    *feels better after useless gesture, shuffles off*

  9. LoneWhacko,Ikeepaskingyouaboutthespaces,butIrealizeI’vebeenaskingthewrongquestion.Whydoyouuseanyspacesatall?

  10. I can’t believe I actually saw the acronym NAU and immediately recognized the meaning. This is almost as bad as the time I knew what JBT meant.

  11. Kerry is my favorite guest on Redeye, she always has such insightful and articulate commentary…mournfully she does not appear more frequently

  12. “It’s odd how Reason tries to downplay, or just ignores, serious issues like TheNAU, the NAFTASuperhighway, and the LawOfTheSeaTreaty. If I didn’t know that they pretend to be libertarians I might think they were committed globalists instead.”

    “Conpiracy theorist fruitcake” and “libertarian” aren’t the same thing. If you look really close you will notice that there is a slight difference in spelling…..

  13. Burma also had the advantage of having telegenic monks standing up to a repressive government.

    Guys in robes trying to use Buddha against guys in military uniforms with AK-47’s makes TV people happier than a bunch of “no good pictures” news in Pakistan about people knuckling under to their own dictator.

    Of course, I could also go all Democratic Underground here and explain about the MSM doesn’t want to be critical of Musharaff, since although at one time Bush did not know his name, they’re now best boyfriends.

  14. I can definitely see Bush sitting in the White House watching news reports out of Pakistan, saying “How come I can’t do that?!”

  15. DUDE, INTERSTATES (AS IN SUPERHIGHWAYS) ALREADY GO FROM THE MEXICAN TO THE CANADIAN BORDERS.

    You mean that [gasp!] Eisenhower was in on the conspiracy? Woe is us! Sovreignity is lost!

  16. Crimethink,

    We still have about a year until elections. Maybe he is just waiting until the elections are really close before pulling a Musharaff type move.

  17. zero: “October (2008)” surprise? Ha ha.

  18. Mourn the decline of our culture, and possibly all cultures

    Hmmm… Cultural Decline? IllegalImmigrationBySpanishSpeakers? Random thugs grabbing power? Lunatic conspiracies? There’s only one common focal point I can think of! These guys. Invisible (to sneak over the border?) Venezuelans (Chavez?) playing disco (cultural decline). In their video, there are also sexy stewardesses, who are banned (!) in Pakistan. Coincidence? I think not!

  19. This was actually on one of the smaller TVs in the bar, although the sound wasn’t on:

    “Who’s the cute chick with the black hair?”
    “She edits a magazine whose subscription I once cancelled.”

  20. This was actually on one of the smaller TVs in the bar, although the sound wasn’t on:

    You go to bars with Fox News on? They must be wild.

  21. Kerry,

    You are allowed to decline invitations to appear on television. For instance, if a demonstrably awful show, such as “Red Eye” invites you on, it isn’t in poor taste to politely decline. Don’t sacrifice your standards to save face.

    Best of Luck,
    Greg

  22. Re: the Pandagon thread

    I understand the symbology of the I-35 bridge, but what’s the deal with the floater dude(?) in a hawaiian shirt and hotpants?

  23. Whoops, wrong thread

  24. In my high school history class the teacher told us that the way the government could build the interstate highway system was under the “Post Road” clause in the Constitution.

  25. “Red Eye” is an example of the decline of our culture, and possibly of all cultures.

  26. “Red Eye” is an example of the decline of our culture, and possibly of all cultures.

    Oh no! TheBrownMenace has managed to InvadeFoxNews?

    That was TheLast CulturalStronghold in the WarOnCulture!!!11!1!!!!11!!!

  27. Taktix, what are you on about?

    I’m not LoneWacko. I was simply pointing out the irony in Kerry recommending we watch the aggressively crappy “Red Eye” show for scathing cultural commentary. Unless she was being ironic.

    Okay, go back to your groupthink fun now.

  28. A marked inability to detect irony is a sign of the decline of our culture, and possibly all cultures.

  29. A marked inability to detect irony is a sign of the decline of our culture, and possibly all cultures.

    Irony? I thought it was dead.
