    Hitting the links


    Another chance to use that old punchline "Oh, that liberal media" comes from an op-ed in the Washington Post, concerning the memo from ABC's Mark Halperin. In case you didn't hear about it, Mark wrote an internal memo to everyone at ABC just before Charlie Gibson moderated the second presidential debate. The memo asserted that while Kerry distorts the truth, it's not as bad as Bush. His chief rationale for this was that Kerry isn't distorting in order to win the election, while Bush is. The best thing about the memo is the unintentional humor afforded to us by a highly placed editor using horrible grammar and spelling to make his points.

    John Podhoretz has some more thoughts on the matter, and I agree with him (as usual).

    PJ O'Rourke has some advice for President Bush going in to Wednesday's debate. No need to convince you to read PJ, I hope.

    Galley Slaves (a great blog) has some thoughts about the article, which means I only have to add "Ha! Me too! PJ rules!"

    And finally, Mark Steyn had written an article for a London newspaper which declined to print it. I can see why they would be worried about it (its topic is the recent beheading of a Brit), but all the same I'm linking to it. Partly because I'm a fan, and partly because I am tired of some PC editor getting in the way of bluntly stating things that need to be said. Let's stop pretending it will just go away if we all eulogize the dead and stoke our grief to what we feel is an appropriate level. Ok? Actually, here's another one by him which focuses on the US. I haven't read it yet, but that's where I'm going now.

    For Free:

    We are living for free;
    The air is for free,
    The clouds are for free.
    Hills and dales are for free;
    Rain and mud are for free;
    The outside of cars,
    The entrance to movie houses,
    The store windows are for free;
    It is not the same as bread and cheese,
    But salt water is for free;
    Freedom will cost you your life,
    But slavery is for free;
    We are living for free,
    For free.
