Fair and balanced? Here’s fair and balanced in the MSM…
Can you believe this is even news? Here it is, almost Memorial Day, and the blithering, trifling Andrew Sullivan has taken exception to some soldiers in Iraq christening — pardon me, naming — their tank “New Testament.” According to the Gospel by Sullivan, quoted in The Washington Times, this is offensive.
“When our own military seems to be advertizing an explicitly Christian identity in Iraq, then it’s time [President Bush] took action. Whoever in the marines allowed this tank to be defaced in this way needs to be removed from his post. It’s an outrage — to both the New Testament and to our mission in Iraq,” Andrew Sullivan, senior editor at the New Republic, wrote Tuesday at his own Web site (www.andrewsullivan.com).
An outrage? Says you and who else? Oh, of course, that other great warrior, veteran of so many tank engagements, ‘weighs’ in on his website:
Filmmaker Michael Moore cited the story, posting the photo online (www.michaelmoore.com) with the Marine directive, “This image has been cleared for release.”
When you two boys sashay into battle, you can name your weaponry anything you want. But meanwhile, to those serving in Iraq, here’s a suggestion for your next tank or Humvee — make sure it’s in big letters:
Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I shall fear no evil for I am the meanest S.O.B. in the valley.
Those trifling pundits with more time and money than wit need to learn the Biblical value of silence.

What’s up with Belmont Club?
Here’s what Wretchard says:
“The Belmont Club is now totally unavailable. I am attempting to get Blogger to resolve the issues but there is no online support and the only replies I receive are canned email replies. Any ideas, anyone?”
In the meantime, he has begun yet another blog, Backup Belmont Club, at http://fallbackbelmont.blogspot.com/.
If he stays there long enough, I’ll change the URL for him on our blogroll.
To Whom It May Concern:
Dymphna actually wrote this post, not me. Since we share the same computer, it’s easy for each of us to accidentally use the other’s login when posting or commenting, which is what happened last night!
Fortunately for me, I agree with everything she said…
Why do I get the distinct impression that, had the Marine chosen to “enoble” their tank some pseudonym for a phallus, Randy Any wouldn’t have uttered a peep?
