PRC’s Long March 5b incompetently put in orbit, likely to irresponsibly deorbit.

I understand that the People’s Republic of China labors under the limitation of a third-rate political and economic ideology, but really, orbital mechanics are hardly new: “China launched the first module for its space station into orbit late Wednesday, but the mission launcher also reached orbit and is slowly and unpredictably heading back to Earth.” One does hope that it doesn’t land on anything populated.

#rsrh Great, I have to burn a blog post on this.

Gee. Thanks.

Sunshine State Sarah does her best to mitigate the damage that N number of boo-ers (and boors) did at last night’s debate:

The debate included video questions that were submitted on YouTube, and one came from a soldier serving in Iraq who is gay and asked about the candidates’ opinions on don’t ask don’t tell. There was audible booing after his question…however, please note that it was not the crowd booing. It was only one or two people.

…but said damage was in point of fact done.  It is not the end of the world, and it is not even going to cost us next year’s election, but booing a soldier who is serving in a war zone is still a stupid and low-rent activity that makes you (deservedly) look bad. It also makes the people sitting next to you look bad.  And you don’t get a mulligan on it if the soldier is gay. Continue reading #rsrh Great, I have to burn a blog post on this.




Hey, I guess I was wrong about something.

I figured that Meryl Streep wasn’t going to let them destroy her chances at a third Oscar by giving her a horribly deformed Margaret Thatcher to play.  Via Power Line, it seems that I was wrong:

The cameras have not even started rolling on a new film being made about Margaret Thatcher’s life in which she is expected to be played by Meryl Streep, but already the project has been tainted by controversy over the negative way it intends to portray the former Prime Minister.

On first hearing about the production last month, a member of Lady Thatcher’s family, who wishes to remain anonymous, said they were ‘appalled’ to learn that she will be depicted as a dementia sufferer looking back on her career with regret.

How do I put this nicely? Look, Hollywood: the reason why the movies that all y’all make that all y’all let be too informed by your personal political sensibilities never make any money is because, well, your personal political sensibilities suck and normal people hate them.  This is not the fault of normal people, and neither is the fact that all y’all get incredibly whiny about having to go through the unbearable tedium of making movies that people will watch in sufficient quantities to support your collective hooker, cocaine, and left-wing liberal activism habits.  So when this turkey bombs and Streep discovers that her numbers are going to be down slightly for the rest of her career, try some introspection before all y’all start pitching a fit.

In-tro-spect-ion.

I-N-T-R-Oh, never mind.
