from Steyn's piece 8/25/2004

John Kerry's real 'band of brothers'
---snip---

Senator Kerry couldn't have foreseen that Al Gore would invent the Internet, and there'd be this Google thingy, and all you'd have to do is tap in a few words and a nanosecond later it would all be at your fingertips – veterans memoirs, Cambodian history, declassified Johnson administration documents, previous Kerry "stretchers" (as Mark Twain called them).
---snip----

****

Written before the famous 60 Minutes II of Sep 8, 2004

I guess Rather, Mapes, et al do not read Steyn.
Their loss.

He is awsome.

'...Granted, a footling suicide cult with no mass support will still blow up cars and burn buildings, and it's savvy enough to do so in parts of the country conveniently located so that Zarqawi's shills in the Western press corps don't have to stray far from their hotels to film it. Or as the internet satirist Scott Ott deftly summarised the coverage: "Iraqi Voting Disrupts News Reports of Bombings."...'

last bump of the day I think. Got here via this:

Thanks for the ping.

We lost Johnny Carson, making Steyn now officially the funniest man alive.
