H.L. Mencken Quote of the Day

without comments

What I admire most in any man is a serene spirit, a steady freedom from moral indignation, an all-embracing tolerance — in brief, what is commonly called good sportsmanship. Such a man … is frequently an eager gladiator, vastly enjoying opposition. But … he carefully guards his amour-propre by assuming that his opponent is as decent a man as he is, and just as honest — and perhaps, after all, right.

Smug Brit Glibly Summarizes America

without comments

In this segment from “Stephen Fry in America,” the foppish English actor writer gains field access to the Auburn-Alabama football game:

Fry’s litany of contradictory adjectives doesn’t encapsulate America; it demonstrates only that– even if America could be defined– the patronizing pedant Stephen Fry is not the one to do it.

Do we want alien civilizations to attack us or not?

without comments

Paul Krugman would like to see space aliens attack Earth so that we’ll have to initiate a massive, economy-stimulating military build-up:

But wait– the Guardian doesn’t want that at all. And you’ll never guess what contentious environmental issue may be attracting the ire of superior intelligent life:

It may not rank as the most compelling reason to curb greenhouse gases, but reducing our emissions might just save humanity from a pre-emptive alien attack, scientists claim.

Watching from afar, extraterrestrial beings might view changes in Earth’s atmosphere as symptomatic of a civilisation growing out of control – and take drastic action to keep us from becoming a more serious threat, the researchers explain.

UPDATE: Allahpundit is funny.

MSNBC – Morons Shrieking Nonsense about Black Clouds

“Deceptive” doesn’t quite do justice to Ed Schultz’s scurrilously selective editing of a Rick Perry speech to claim that the Texas governor is– you’ll never guess– an Anti-Obama racist.
