National Review and its "The Corner" blog in particular are always good for a laugh. I decided to let them know how funny (cough...moronic) they are by e-mailing a response to a recent post by AEI's Michael Ledeen regarding the recent saber-rattling between Australia and Iran. To wit:

"I've been reluctant to link to it, since it comes from al-BBC (you know, the ones that recently advertised for information about "troop movements" so they could broadcast it to anyone interested), but this link is to The Australian, so I decided to post it." (Source)

I assume I can expect a virulent denunciation of Fox News and any Corner posters who reference Fox News to be forthcoming, replete with race-baiting al-Fox News neologisms.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    •  referring to Geraldo drawing a map in the sand (0+ / 0-)

      and juxtaposing it to nro's complaining about the bbc, I believe.  Of course nro hates geraldo as much as anyone so I really don't know what one thing has to do with the other.  geraldo is one of the house "liberals" at fox noise that they throw in our faces in order to call themselves "fair and balanced".  He's also a moron.

  •  You're thinking too much like a liberal (0+ / 0-)

    Think more like them

    Accusations of treason, however spurious they may be, are perfect grounds to hold whoever you want guilty by association. Makes perfect sense, right?

    For Example:
    NYTimes Unmasking of Wiretapping -> al-NYT

    Massachusetts' Progress on Gay Rights -> al-Massachusetts

    and here...single BBC story -> al-BBC

    Go on make up your own. It's shockingly easy. Why even a small child can come up with these! Although this is not to say that children elevate the "al-" insult up to the level of piercing wit that Mr. Ledeen does. You have to get a Ph.D. in punditry from RegentU to do that.

    You're thinking that Geraldo's "liberal" past and current sock puppet routine count as evidence. You seem to be under the mistaken impression that things like facts and evidence have to be taken into account. Better to do what the esteemed Stephen Colbert, D.F.A. suggests and "follow your gut." Welcome to right-wing pundit world.
