[UPDATE: CORRECTION! CORRECTION! CORRECTION! AN ALERT READER POINTS OUT THAT GLENN REYNOLDS HAD IN POINT OF FACT SPECIFIED “EVIL NINJAS!” I THUS APOLOGIZE TO GLENN REYNOLDS FOR THE ERROR, AND WILL NOW EXPIATE MY SHAME BY GETTING THE COFFEEPOT* READY FOR TOMORROW. – ML]
Surely Glenn Reynolds knows that ninja have historically been familiar with firearms for centuries; so clearly any good, patriotic American ninja would see no problem in belonging to the National Rifle Association – particularly since doing so would also help a ninja guarantee his Second Amendment rights. Not to mention Concealed Carry… and, honestly: if you can’t trust a ninja to be responsible and careful about the weapons that he bears, then who can you trust?
I will readily admit that evil ninja would be well-advised to avoid the NRA, but that’s a different story altogether.
Honestly, I don’t know what Glenn was thinking, there.
*[Because I have none.]
In the latest event, a sword-wielding ninja smashed 11 cars in South Union Township, PA. and tried to stab a man who confronted him, say police. Santino Guzzo said he heard glass breaking, found the ninja hiding in a yard, and was cut in the hand during the ensuing ninja escape.
“He was like a gazelle that just got attacked by a lion,” Guzzo told the Pittsburgh Trib. “He got up and fell, and got up and fell. Then he jumped off a cliff.”
Guzzo reported that he “did not move with the grace typically associated with a ninja” and that he therefore “will not live in fear of the ninja’s return.”
By the way, Boing Boing: the plural of ‘ninja’ is ‘ninja.’ Yes, yes, I know: English traditionally doesn’t give a [expletive deleted] what the grammatical rules are for other languages. But, given that ‘ninja’ means ‘night-clad assassin of DOOM’… well, do you want to offend them with your barbarian’s defiling of their native tongue?
That’s what I thought.
Going to the G20 summit in Pittsburgh.
Well, I guess that the antiwar movement needs to do something with its time, now that they’ve lost the war to lose the war in Iraq.
PS: Betcha that they all hate capitalism – and that they all have iPods.

Like the DaTechguy, I’m actually not outraged over Kos’s Pittsburgh comments, and for the same reason: this is who the Online Left are, this is what they set out to become, and now they’re there and have to deal with the consequences of eating, drinking, and breathing hate for eight years. So, no surprise, and you need surprise to sustain outrage.
Fully justified contempt, on the other hand, is still easily achievable. And quite fun. I can’t wait to start asking Democratic Congressional candidates if they too believe that Republicans are copkillers, and neither can anybody else on this side of the spectrum.
[UPDATE]: Welcome, Instapundit readers. You might enjoy the tank post. [UPDATE the second]: And welcome again; this time I’m going to suggest that you go buy Rules for Radicals, if only because the visitors from the two Lefty sites visiting here don’t want you to (I’d link, but I’m pretty sure that both sites are pro-torture. Besides, Lefty sites are notorious for their readers not actually clicking through anyway.)
Are any of you wondering why he’s gone Full Metal Moonbat over this (see also Jim Treacher and Hot Air)*?
Nah, me neither.
