Since I inadvertently went on a Germanic trend over the past few weeks, I thought I’d end August with the godfathers of elektronenmusik, Kraftwerk. This track is featured on their wonderful live double album Minimum-Maximum, recorded on a world tour in 2005. You will enjoy, ja?

Sen. Craig MAY just have an out in the continuing Ickygate scandal. What he should say is that when he suggestively tapped his right foot in the men’s room stall, it was: tap-tap tap-TAP-TAP-TAP TAP-tap-TAP-TAP-TAP TAP-TAP-tap-tap-TAP-TAP-tap-TAP-TAP So give him a break, stupid biased news media!

Devasting

Mere words cannot express the effect of this systematic takedown of mainstream media reporting on Iraq. Read every word, it’s worth it. And then jump over and read Bill Roggio, Michael Yon or Michael Totten and read what’s really going on in Iraq. Via Confederate Yankee.

The list of calm left-leaning blogs is depressingly short, but Josh Marshall’s Talking Points Memo can usually be counted on to be partisan, intelligent and intellectually honest. And this take on the sordid mess of the Larry Craig affair is particularly insightful. “Look, I wouldn’t want to bring my 4-year-old son into the airport bathroom • Read More »

No, not this one. As far as we know, he is still safe, though I understand he’s demanding a conjungal visit with Malibu Barbie. Rather, the idea of G.I.
