This is hilarious. The genius of Mr. Harry Shearer (He of Derek Smalls and many Simpson's voices fame). Listen here (Real Player). Link via Kausfiles. Caveat: Satire is not gloating!
Continuing in the humorous vein, Josh Marshall offers up John Fund's Gilligan's Island defense of Iraq.
Via BlogCritics, the UK Guardian's list of the 100 Greatest Novels. Generally I like lists, they're fun and give us all the opportunity to get our panties in a wad about what was left out or what was on top. And at least this is novels, so Citizen Kane won't be on top. I think you all know I love Kane, but it just always seems to be on top of lists. I'd be interested in hearing nominees for best novel not listed. Off the top of my head and a quick text search, I was surprised to find that Nathaniel West's "The Day of the Locust" is conspicuous by it's absence.
[Update: Friend Bridget nominates "Atlas Shrugged" as conspicuously missing.]
