Via Roger’s Rules we contrast the reception of two different Commanders-in-Chief

People like to forget what side the president was on in Iraq. Marines never forget. They are polite and respectful as required but they never forget. The reaction of the media person at the end is priceless.

…did David Frum rate a Newsweek cover article.

And the Sunday and Monday shows will jump all over it. This week already did featuring David “Obama is a moderate” Brooks. Where the panel of course agreed that conservatism needs to change.

We will see a lot of this for a while, as the Obama program makes things worse we of course will not see the reverse suggesting that Rush was right.

As long as you are willing to attack leading conservatives voices the media will always love you.

this is why.

Oh and when they say that less that .05% of documents are affected think of it this way.

Worldwide how many users do you think there are of the free google document stuff, 1 million, 5 million? 10 Million? More?

Lets say each of those people have 50-100 documents. that is between 50 million and one billion documents. That works out to between 25 thousand and half a million documents. A mere pittance!

One of the great things about upsets is the sheer joy of reading articles like this.

The Netherlands’ chances of advancing were slim to begin with, but when Jair Jurrjens chose not to participate, it left them with virtually no chance.

In under 24 hours they have gone from virtual no chance to one win away from advancing. Now lets look at the other end of the spectrum:

Even without Rodriguez, though, the Dominican team is loaded for manager Felipe Alou, who will field a lineup that still boasts the likes of Hanley Ramirez, Jose Reyes, David Ortiz and Robinson Cano.

Ya think they might be calling for his head in the Dominican tonight. They certainly will be if they lose tomorrow afternoon against Panama.

Albert Pujols, Alfonso Soriano and Vladimir Guerrero all opted to skip the event.

You think those guys are going to hear about it if the Dominicans are bounced in round one? I think it will be rather nasty.

As it was a clutch situation I don’t know if A-Rod would have made a difference.
