Well, stop blowing sh*t up, then.

(Via Hot Air) Rick Moran and I aren’t precisely on each other’s Christmas Card lists, but he raises an excellent point here: after the tenth or fifteenth time that radical Islamist terrorist scum bomb/murder/attack civilian targets, you start seeing patterns in the data.  Of course I assumed that the Norwegian attacks probably had something to do with that Mullah Krekar guy: terrorist connections, deportation proceedings, recently charged with making death threats – yeah, gee, that was a stretch.  As for apologies… heh.  I don’t give a tinker’s dam about the tender sensibilities of Islamist terrorists; I never blamed ordinary, decent Muslims for this in the first place; and I have always been notably indifferent about whether the Apologist Left is happy at my reaction towards homophobic, sexist, genocidal, anti-democratic, anti-secular, anti-Semitic, violent terrorist scumbags*.

I had more, but it was mostly just a tedious reinforcement of the main point.

*You know: scumbags like Hamas, which is running the Gaza strip these days.  How’s that relief flotilla thing that the Left’s putting together for them doing?

President snubs Norway for no discernable reason.

Ah, this glorious new world where we’re no longer casually offending other nations with our actions. From noted British right-wing rag The Guardian:

Barack Obama’s trip to Oslo to pick up his Nobel peace award is in danger of being overshadowed by a row over the cancellation of a series of events normally attended by the prizewinner.

Norwegians are incensed over what they view as his shabby response to the prize by cutting short his visit.

The White House has cancelled many of the events peace prize laureates traditionally submit to, including a dinner with the Norwegian Nobel committee, a press conference, a television interview, appearances at a children’s event promoting peace and a music concert, as well as a visit to an exhibition in his honour at the Nobel peace centre.

I personally didn’t want him to accept the thing in the first place, but if you’re going to take the Nobel Peace Prize, you go and you do the whole experience. Even if parts of it are boring. Even if parts of it are not fun.  Even if parts of it are impositions on your time.

I was about to suggest that the President apparently just wants to be a constitutional monarch, instead – except that the European royal families typically are better at enduring dull ceremonial with good grace than this guy is.  So I’ll just note that we’re stuck with a POTUS that seems to just not want to work for a living.

What the HELL was that in the sky?

No, seriously: what is that? I know that they’re suggesting a malfunctioning missile, but since when to malfunctioning missiles shoot out blue-green rays for minutes at a time?

Seriously weird. On the bright side, at least nobody went blind. Which may be more than one can say about the results of watching that miniseries.
