The Sight Is Dismal 

The second in what will hopefully not become a series. Once again, this blog believes that satire ought to be laid on thick 'n' clumpy. In case you haven't caught on yet, I'm a (rapidly failing) theater student.

Derbyshire and Goldberg Are Dead

A Short Play, in (Reverse) Blog Form

Two CONSERVATIVE BLOGGERS are passing the time in a place without much visible character. Each of them has a laptop.

The law of probability, according to an episode of The Simpsons, has something to do with the proposition that if six monkeys were given the chance to invest some amount of their payroll tax funds in the stock market, they would make enough money to retire comfortably about half of the time.

An emailer has alerted me that I am, perhaps, talking about either an episode of Family Guy or the Law of Diminishing Returns.

Re: HEADS [Jonah Goldberg]
Derb’s post puts me in the mind of the recent Sen. Byrd kerfuffle. For the life of me, I can’t figure out what Byrd was thinking when he dredged up the old Bush-Hitler comparison. List of possible explanations. One: Byrd has lost his mind. He’s what, 150 years old now? Clearly too old to remember how he himself was for changing the Senate cloture rules in 1975, as an emailer pointed out to me earlier today.

Two: Bush-hating has finally jumped the shark. That is, like The Simpsons after season 8 or so, it is re-hasing old plots and losing its original spark and vitality.

Three: A spectacular vindication of the theory that any leftist Democrat, given an theoretically infinite amount of time, will eventually use every ad hominem argument against Bush available – once again, a theoretically infinite number of possible permutations. I’ve never seen anything like it on the Senate floor, though.

A SYLLOGISM [John Derbyshire]
One: Jonah Goldberg has never seen anything like it on the Senate floor before. Two: Jonah Goldberg has never read about anything like it in a book. Three: It has never been in a book.

TIME-WASTER [Jonah Goldberg]
Here’s a pretty good game to waste time with while you’re supposed to be working: Questions! (mild language)

ENDS AND MEANS [Ramesh Ponnuru]
This conservative will go out on a limb and say that just ends are a necessary but not sufficient condition to justify the means used to achieve them.

Re: FIRE! [John Derbyshire]
It’s all right – I’m demonstrating the misuse of free speech. To prove that it exists.
