SHAARI‘ YOU CANT BE SERIOUS:

P O’Neill takes Hitchens (and by extension Sullivan) to task over his eulogy for “the Arab street.”
But with his trademark laziness, Hitch never supplies any actual instances of someone ever using the term “Arab street,” let alone someone who has since dropped it. Not that he’s likely to have even tried, but one possibility is that a Google search only provided a bunch of Fouad Ajami articles, and of course Ajami was always insightfully cynical about the concept. As opposed to Hitch’s brand of neo-colonial cynical

WITH REGRET, BUT ALSO UNDERSTANDING ...:

Steve Mussina has decided to hang it up.

While Sebastian and TBogg thank him and urge him to keep his hand in, and we certainly think he underestimates his own abilities, we can also understand from where he speaks. Two years is a long time, in blog years, to be at this. Believe us. When they reach that age (and may they), they’ll understand.

Just look, O longtime readers, at some of the names that were prominently featured back in those now-halcyon days of summer 2002 when we first started pecking away. Names that are no more. Hesiod. Wyeth Ruthven. Free Pie. Many gone from our blogroll, but oh so important way back when in what was the Planck time of liberal blogging, when Atrios was yet unknown to the major media and Daily Kos was a while off. Back when, as we’ve noted before, any reporting about political blogging in the corporate media treated them mainly as a conservative phenomenon and even conservative bloggers pretended their liberal counterparts didn’t exist.

Oh, man. You always feel a little older when it’s one of your own whose passing wets your eyes. Too old.

UPDATE: He changes his mind. Good. And adds commenting to his blog. Even better.

THE RIGHT’S WAY OF HELPING PROMOTE STAR WARS: EPISODE III:
Why has there been such astonishing silence about torture — even sickening comments by people like Taranto and Chrenkoff?

Because they were seduced by the Dark Side of the Force, that’s why.

If you only knew the power, Andy! If you only knew! The ability to milk hot loads is insignificant when compared with ... oh, forget it.

We’d also be remiss if we can’t see what he’s talking about in the Taranto link, either, although that may have changed since he put it up. (Then again, he may just have decided he’s going to be James Tarantino, instead).
