The “youths” in Paris barely have their cars, uh “started” and the former newspaper known as the NYT is already trash-talking the new French president.
And what is the title of their “analysis” piece?
Nicolas Sarkozy: Winning the Chance to Prove His Critics Wrong
Only the New York Times can read an overwhelming election and decide that the winner has to prove people wrong!
Don’t know much about Sarkozy. But if the NYT is aggin’ ‘im, I’m fer ‘im.
Reid Bryson, credited by some as the father of modern meteorology, has some pithy things to say about climate change. Like, duh, the climate changes.
Q: Could you rank the things that have the most significant impact and where would you put carbon dioxide on the list?
A: Well let me give you one fact first. In the first 30 feet of the atmosphere, on the average, outward radiation from the Earth, which is what CO2 is supposed to affect, how much [of the reflected energy] is absorbed by water vapor? In the first 30 feet, 80 percent, okay?
Q: Eighty percent of the heat radiated back from the surface is absorbed in the first 30 feet by water vapor…
A: And how much is absorbed by carbon dioxide? Eight hundredths of one percent. One one-thousandth as important as water vapor. You can go outside and spit and have the same effect as doubling carbon dioxide.
while I dab a little tear from my eye.
The Misogynists were going to play the Multiculturalists, and the AP thinks the fact it was called off is wacky.
It’s getting hard to tell real life from a Leno monologue.
Perhaps you wondered how much damage Richard Reid could possibly have done with explosives in his shoe. The FBI wondered the same thing, so they constructed an identical shoe bomb. The results are most impressive.

I should rename this post The Perils of Believing Newspapers. I thought that plane looked familiar. It is not, as the News of the World claims, an FBI reconstruction of the Reid shoe-bomb. It’s a much earlier test run on an L-1011 (PDF) They were trying to see if new luggage containers could mitigate luggage bombs.
Feel free to follow the LGF link above. Charles has the correction and a hat tip.
An incredible 85% voter turnout and a huge victory for Sarkozy. The press calls him “right wing”. My guess is that translates to “not far enough Left”. The Kos Kids moan:
It’s a disappointing development for our French friends and for the whole world. As many mistakes as Segolene made, I believe that she would have made a remarkable president. Sarkozy is poised to institute Le Pen-esque policies cracking down on those he has previously referred to as “rabble” and promised to clean out “with a fire hose”—anybody who doesn’t look and act French. If anything, this election proves that Americans don’t have a monopoly on reactionary politicians who get elected by using fear, division, and the politics of exclusion. Here’s hoping for a better result in the upcoming French parliamentary elections.
The “youths” seem even less pleased. Let’s hope they turn over control of the fire hoses to him right away.
A Mickey Mouse-like character preaches Islamic supremacy to kids on “Palestinian” TV.
This is what the enemy looks like, folks. They want us all dead, or under Shari’a. (Same thing.)
