Wankster Blogger Alert!

The problem with falling asleep at 7:30pm is that you are up at 3:00am with far too much time on your hands. I thought it would help the cause of sleep if I read. I logged in to peruse the headlines at the Toronto Star and this bloggy by-line caught my eye (registration required):
Why `Weenie' may start with a capital Dubya

This is pretty much the standard Bush fisk but it is written by an alleged journalist, writing an alleged column for a major Canadian newspaper. Now I have no problems per say with journalists who hanker to be bloggers but Slinger needs to spend some down time reading and learning how the real bloggers do it. Memo to Slinger: Read Frank J at IMAO.

I have no problem tuning out the outrage factor on the Bush is a Weenie diatribes but I have nothing but blatant contempt for the man who would write this -- or for the newspaper that would publish it:

“He can't quite tell the difference between the gallant Royal 22nd Regiment that has just returned from making Afghanistan safe for opium growers”

I wish I had said, sleep be damned and finished playing Halo 2. Next time I will know better.

I have asked Santa for Halo 2 for Christmas. Is it any good?

Let's try this again. It is better than Halo 1, I am anxiously awaiting the new Metal Gear Solid.

To return to topic... like it wasn't safe for opium growers before?

And the fact that girls are in school again, well, that counts for nothing.

Valueless schmuck.

Sigh.

We return you to your regularly scheduled gaming thread.

Half-life 2.
