Things run into here and there:
- David Burge, the Iowahawk, has an amusing bit on the Rathergate report that takes off on ’40s crime fiction. (You can also look at his Dan Rather/Wile E. Coyote piece if you’re familiar with the cartoon series.)
- On the Rathergate report itself, PowerLine has a discussion that brings out the lengths to which the oh-so-boringly-establishment CBS review panel was willing to go to avoid reaching disruptive conclusions (like finding that supremely respectable and well-connected people and institutions that are typically on the right side of all issues and whose enemies aren’t so respectable were involved in actual fraud).
- And leaving respectability far behind, Michelle Malkin gives us a sample of her hate mail. Most of it seems to be from Filipinos and other non-whites who are obsessed by race and insanely jealous of WASPs and blonds for being WASP and blond. Why do they think it’s so bad to look Filipino? A lot of the race stuff is mixed up with sex, and I can understand why support by American sailors etc. for the Filipino sex industry would make that something of a sore point, but not enough to explain what they say.
