Today's Hoot!

Jonah Goldberg on Jihadi Chic:
At the annual Cairo antiwar conference in Egypt, the hot panel discussion this year was “Bridge-Building Between the Left and Islam.” John Rees, a British Trotskyite, observed: “Where else can you sit down in a single evening and listen to senior people from Hamas, Hezbollah, the Muslim Brotherhood, people from the revolutionary left and the antiwar movement from around the globe?”

Gosh, it sounds great. I’m just sorry I missed the rollicking game of Pictionary between the Castroites and the jihadis afterwards.
Now the Leftoids have always been willing to jump in the sack with just about anyone in the hopes of gaining power (see Hitler-Stalin pact), but doesn't swapping spit with Islamic terrorists put a crimp in all the gay and women's lib rhetoric? Apparently not.

There's more fun in the full article including:
Now, it’s way too early to start talking about the “Taliban wing of the Democratic party” or anything like that, but this is a fascinating and largely ignored phenomenon.
Heck, I thought that "Leader of the Democrat Taliban Wing" was Nancy Pelosi's job title!

She must have mislaid her broom

It was scandalous how all the "earth friendly" Donk candidates showed up for their South Carolina debate in chartered private jets, but Her Heinous Hillary Clinton showed them who really has the biggest carbon footprint:

After flying from D.C. to the Thursday Orangeburg debate aboard a chartered Gulfstream II aircraft, Mrs. Clinton was then flown back to D.C. Thursday night after the debate concluded, aboard the same aircraft. After dropping-off Mrs. Clinton, the Gulfstream II was then sent back to Greenville - - with no passengers in it - - to await her return to South Carolina the next day.

After a Friday morning speaking engagement in D.C., Mrs. Clinton boarded a private Hawker 800 jet, flew to Greenville, climbed back on board the Gulfstream II that had been waiting for her in Greenville since the night before, and took a short flight from Greenville to Columbia. Upon arriving in Columbia, Mrs. Clinton then boarded a Gulfstream III aircraft that she had ordered as an upgrade (“she didn’t like the configuration of the cabin” of the Gulfstream II), and flew from Columbia to California, while the Gulfstream II that she didn't like returned to D.C. - - again without passengers.
Maybe the Gulfstream II didn't have big enough seats to accomodate her wide load?
