‘Oh, Bennie, card tricks. If I’d known…’

December 1, 2009

"It's over! The links, the beautifully conditioned links are smashed. They're smashed as of now because we say so, because we say they are to be smashed. We're busting up the joint, we're tearing out all the wires..."

We call them “deal breakers.” You ladies know what I mean. He tells you he loves model trains. Or Star Trek. He’s a part time clown or ventriloquist — or, heaven help us, full time. You fix a rictus grin on your face, silently morn the time you wasted shaving your legs, and scan for the ladies room exit.

One of my deal breakers (were I still single) is magic tricks. “Pick a card, any card.”

The guys at the George Soros Steno Pool, also known as Media Matters, are still trying to impress their blind dates with fumbling table magic and lousy sleight of hand.

They’re hoping to focus your attention to those hacked “Climaquiddick” emails; no less than four headlines on their homepage today pointedly mention them, beneath a cheap stock photo of a particularly shabby looking polar bear.

Of course, the real story lies in the hacked computer code files, not bitchy messages between some scientists, and how they were acquired. (Funny, the mainstream media isn’t this scrupulous about the source of “stolen documents” when they support their favorite narratives.)

The big liberal media is practicing the same sleight of hand, in part because emails are easier for the average “math-is-hard”  journo to “analyze” than scientific data or computer code.

And in part because the code, where the real scandal lies, proves that their pet cause, “global warming,” was the Loch Ness monster of weather all along.

As blogger Jim Treacher quipped: “Climategate is a story about computer hacking in much the same way Watergate was a story about parking garages.”

Hey, Watergate! Remember that? “Following the money”? Those “brave” journalists going up against the Establishment? All the President’s Men?

Oh wait: wrong movie. One about brainwashing makes a much more fitting reference point…

We’re busting it up so good all the queen’s horses and all the queen’s men will never put old Raymond back together again. You don’t work any more! That’s an order. Anybody invites you to a game of solitaire, you tell ’em sorry, buster, the ball game is over.

    Kathie, you sound like a lot of women I have dated. In fact, my last wife’s name is Kathy. I think she found someone who didn’t like model trains as a hobby.

    I edited my last movie, now I can relax knowing everything is going to be taken care of by my representatives. I await the pill that silences me.

      No hard feelings I hope, Carter. Just me having fun 🙂

        I cried awhile, but hell, my experiences are nothing compared to what the future beholds for all of us.

        Where’d you find the happy face, all mine have the lips pointing down.

    Of course, the real story lies in the hacked computer code files,

    Your so correct . That’s where we should hammer these frauds. Absolutely Kathy. One hundred per cent. Indeed the e-mails though interesting from a s sociological point of view concerning scientific tribalism. They are just the musing of the rot, not the evil source itself.

    If your love of model trains has made you very wealthy Carter, the ladies will listen with a great amount of interest. Add Star Trek and even part-time clowning etc.

    This is one of many Real Facts of Life someone needs to write a book about…..why not you? 🙂

    Now OT: Warmergate is a major disappointment for scientists of all kinds. Their profession, like doctors, get a great amount of deference and respect based on their reputation for unbiased objective search for best answers to tough problem from the available data/history. The leaked emails appear to show this is not the case by climatologists, etc, working at the CRU.

    I suspected global warming was being over hyped and not worth a major resource allocation, especially in a down economy. However, I support a continued effort to reduce pollution caused by humans, that is not deniable, where it is necessary and affordable. If global warming is occurring, and it appears it is(the argument being whether it is natural or man-made), it would make since an any case to spend most limited resources on learning to live with the warming instead of trying to change it by carbon dioxide reduction, which is not a pollutant, on the chance this is causing it.

    “..spend most limited resources on learning to live with the warming instead of trying to change it by carbon dioxide reduction, which is not a pollutant, on the chance this is causing it.”

    To clarify: because it is highly unlikely the world could agree to make a significant enough and expensive change in carbon emission to make a difference in a 150 year accumulation, even if it were a forgone conclusion. And even if it could, it would still likely be too late to make a difference in the environment the size of the whole world’s. Of course it is not a forgone conclusion man-made carbon is the cause.
