Line of the Night

Line of the night goes to Wonkette, courtesy Tilting at Windmills:

Bush is ready for Kucinich machine:

The president’s team said it also has done substantial research on Sen. John Edwards (N.C.) in case he surges to the nomination and has even prepared a couple of ad scripts targeting long shot Dennis J. Kucinich, an Ohio congressman.

In other words: Ad scripts to campaign against the vegan endorsed by “the creatures of the forest”? Got ‘em. Post-invasion plan for Iraqi government? Uhmmmm…

Yeah, the Bush Administration out some things well in advance, and then one member of the administration calls the National Education Association a “terrorist organization”. Talk about a split personality. How can an administration that has the organization of Machiavelli still make such boneheaded moves?

Return of the King Passes the $1 Billion Global Receipts Mark

That’s the news on CNN. By doing so, the third installment of the Rings trilogy becomes only the second movie in history to achieve this feat — the first being the saccarine and manipulative blockbuster Titanic. Return of the King, I note, also got this far in seven days less time.

Of course, if they combine the global worldwide take of this movie with The Fellowship of the Ring and The Two Towers, then they’d have a movie that beat all and everything… including the running time of War and Peace.

And it’s a lot more fun to watch.

Carnival of the Canucks, XI

I shamefully forgot to mention that the eleventh installment of the Carnival of the Canucks is up and running at the G Spot, complete with a nice license plate motif. Way to go, Kim!

Meanwhile, on Blogs Canada, Jim Elve wants to get Nunavut into the blogging world in a big way, going so far as to offer free setup and a year’s free hosting to the first person who signs up. Way to go, Jim!
