  • College: The Sixty-Five Thousand Dollar Misunderstanding

    04/17/2014 7:28:04 AM PDT · by SeekAndFind
    Pajamas Media ^ | 04/17/2014 | Roger L. Simon
    [1]Back in 1962, Robert Gover published a novel called the One Hundred Dollar Misunderstanding [2] whose premise Amazon describes this way: “A college sophomore spends a weekend with a pretty 14-year-old black prostitute under the manly misapprehension that she has invited him because she finds him irresistible.”I remember reading it as an undergraduate and finding it mildly amusing. Of course, inflation being what it is, it’s hard to write a book about a piddling hundred dollar misunderstanding anymore. But somehow the novel came to mind today when reading one of my favorite websites — The College Fix [3]. The...
  • Time for a little Koch jiujitsu on Democrats

    Harry Reid’s jihad against the Koch Brothers has already yielded a hilarious video compilation (by the Free Beacon) of his 134 mentions of their name. But now with new information, his Koch addiction can become a potent tool in the hands of Republicans. Call it karma, if you like, but the former boxer now leading the Senate majority has left himself wide open.It turns out that Koch Industries employees and PACs have donated to quite a large number of Congressional Democrats. The data was right there on Open Secrets when Jeff Dunetz of Truth Revolt picked it up and posted...

    Democratic Party front group Media Matters for America has been loyally defending First Lady Michelle Obama's luxurious Spanish vacation this week even as other liberals concede the Obama administration made a politically insensitive call in signing off on the trip.Today, Media Matters attacked Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit/Pajamas Media for his critique of Michelle Obama's trip. The headline of the attack piece: Michelle Obama derangement syndrome: Instapundit posts pic of First Lady as Marie AntoinetteNot only does the headline reinforce the growing meme that Michelle Obama is acting like a rich pig, but upon opening the article one is confronted with...

    TEA PARTY FUTURE: LESS GLAMOUR, MORE EFFECTIVE In his Washington Examiner column, Glenn Reynolds of Instapundit writes about the future of the Tea Party movement. Reynolds explains where the real work is being accomplished. Reynolds attended the April 15 Cincinnati TP rally: "But although that rally -- and the hundreds like it around the country that day -- was a scene of great excitement, that kind of excitement isn't the future of the Tea Party movement. The future, instead, is something much less glamorous, but much more important, than mass rallies and marches." --continue reading. *** Big government spending is...

    Pajamas Media is capitalizing on its earlier coverage of the Tea Party movement and has launched Tea Party TV. As the PR release says, "Expanding on its coverage of the National Tea Party Convention last week, PJTV announced its launch of Tea Party TV, offering comprehensive coverage of the Tea Party movement. The cornerstone of the Tea Party TV coverage will be a twice-a-week Internet TV show hosted by Glenn Reynolds and AlfonZo Rachel, well-known commentators on PJTV. " Since the original PR release, they've also added Dana Loesch to Reynolds and Rachel. It's "the best way to stay informed...

    In what may turn out to be the most important Second Amendment ruling since 1939s hideously misinterpreted Miller - and maybe the most important ruling on the Amendment in American history, the Supreme Court has granted cert to Parker v. D.C. and will be taking up the case in this session. Natch, Glenn Reynolds has tonsalinks. My first take (I have to admit Im shaking in my boots at the negative possibilities here, given that I thought the SCOTUS would dodge this one) is that the Court will find an individual right, but do so in such a way that...

    Paul Campos has beclowned himself. He did it in the usual way, by arguing loudly about things he does not understand. Campos chose to devote an entire column (The rights Ward Churchill, Feb. 20) to a blog entry of mine from last week, in which I wondered why the Bush administration wasnt acting covertly to kill radical mullahs and atomic scientists, rather than preparing a major attack on Iran. (Silly me, I thought this was advocating a less warlike approach). According to Campos, this suggestion was both morally wrong suggesting that we kill people this way made me a...

    GLENN Reynolds isn't just the author of "An Army of Davids." He's a living, breathing embodiment of the book's attractive and persuasive thesis as summarized in its lengthy but informative subtitle: "How Markets and Technology Empower Ordinary People to Beat Big Media, Big Government and Other Goliaths." In August 2001, Reynolds was a respected but relatively obscure law professor teaching at the University of Tennessee, a college better known for its football program than its brainpower. Then Reynolds, who had been haunting Slate's reader forum "The Fray," started Instapundit.com, which took off like gangbusters after the 9/11 attacks. Reynolds linked...

    Glenn Reynolds in TCS Daily talks about the reason for the decline of newspapers. Its worthwhile reading the whole thing. While Glenn lists a number of reasons for the decline in readership, let me get personal. There are two reasons that I no longer read the Virginian Pilot: First, the stories it carries are already old by the time they reach my box in the morning. To get a comprehensive overview of the important events of yesterday and today, I turn on my computer and go to a few web sites that provide that service: Drudge, Instapundit, and Free Republic...

    Not long ago, Canada's Conservative Party looked to be irretrievably on the ropes. Today, the Conservative Leader, Stephen Harper, will become the country's next Prime Minister. How did this happen? Basically, Canadian voters got tired of the corruption, pork-barreling, and smugness of the entrenched Liberal Party. Meanwhile, here in the United States, it's the entrenched Republicans, who control all three branches of government, who are facing these problems. Corruption? We've got the Abramoff scandal. It may not amount to as much as Democrats hope, but it's not good, and there are probably more scandals waiting in the wings. (There always...

    NEW YORK A media Web site scheduled to debut Wednesday will seek to blend traditional journalism with the freeform commentary developed through the emerging Web format known as blogs. Some 70 Web journalists, including Instapundit's Glenn Reynolds and David Corn, Washington editor of the Nation magazine, have agreed to participate in OSM _ short for Open Source Media. OSM will link to individual blog postings and highlight the best contributions, chosen by OSM editors, in a special section. Bloggers will be paid undisclosed sums based on traffic they generate. The ad-supported OSM site will also carry news feeds from Newstex,...

    Three years ago, I looked at the phenomenon of "preference cascades" -- in which people who have been obliged to conceal their true beliefs by social pressure or sheer force suddenly discover that a lot of other people feel the same way -- and wrote: "This illustrates, in a mild way, the reason why totalitarian regimes collapse so suddenly. (Click here for a more complex analysis of this and related issues). Such regimes have little legitimacy, but they spend a lot of effort making sure that citizens don't realize the extent to which their fellow-citizens dislike the regime. If the...

    Colin Powell has resigned, and will likely be replaced by National Security Advisor Condi Rice . This isn't an unusual move, as Rice won't be the first National Security Advisor to move to State. And there are a lot of advantages: President Bush is obviously very comfortable with her and with her judgment, and she's undoubtedly up to speed on events. And they're used to working together in secrecy.

    Although everybody's talking about weapons of mass destruction, the story that's not being reported --you'd almost think the press "wants Kerry to win"-- is the complete collapse of John Kerry's foreign policy case, and the reason for that collapse. The ISG, who confirmed last autumn that they had found no WMD, last night presented detailed findings from interviews with Iraqi officials and documents laying out his plans to bribe foreign businessmen and politicians.

    UPHILL FOR KERRY My Friday entry entitled John Forbes Dukakis seems to have been onto something. Labor Day weekend saw a lot of Dukakis references in regard to the troubled Kerry for President campaign. Mike Dukakis' former campaign manager was out last week threatening dirty tricks. Meanwhile, former Dukakis hitman John Sasso is now working for Kerry, which, as Eileen McNamara of the Boston Globe notes, is a bit of a problem for the Kerry campaign, even if Sasso does possess the kind of dirty-tricks expertise that Estrich seems to want: The problem with soliciting contributions to end the "smug...
