HOT5 Daily 7/29/2010

1. "Democrat Party unveils cute, fuzzy mascot to distract liberals from its unblemished streak of domestic, economic and foreign policy blunders" Long title, amusing article.

Representative Sample: "Look at that insurance company's caveman and lizard ads. Or that f***ing duck! A duck! It increased sales like a gazillion percent for them."

2. "Andrew Sullivan Attacks Me Without Bothering to Consider What I Wrote Yeah, that's a surprise. For those wondering why I even bother linking takedowns of an obvious fool like Andrew Sullivan, it's because he has a large readership and people actually take him seriously. I know it's hard to believe.

Representative Sample: There is something in diplomacy between war and appeasement. It is called carrots and sticks, costs and benefits, quid pro quo. Cameron's speech was a mess because he abandoned that principle and resorted only to simple-minded flattery. Middle Eastern peoples--Muslim or otherwise--know what that signals: weakness, which invites ridicule and aggressiveness.

3. "Exclusive: Google, CIA Invest in ‘Future’ of Web Monitoring" And people get upset when I refer to the "right" of privacy as imaginary.

Representative Sample: America’s spy services have become increasingly interested in mining “open source intelligence” — information that’s publicly available, but often hidden in the daily avalanche of TV shows, newspaper articles, blog posts, online videos and radio reports.

4. "10 Things About Turning 40" Some of these ring true. Others are a bit out there.

Representative Sample: After 39 years of not being 40, I decided to give it a try. Being two score is unlike anything before it so I feel it would be prudent to warn you about a few things…

5. "Hamas Cracking Down On Un-Islamic Panties" Lingerie shops not allowed to display lingerie.

Representative Sample: This will not do much to bolster the assurances of Western academics and journalists that – contrary to deceit-soaked Zionist propaganda – Hamas is actually a secular civil society movement.
