Amusing result from trying out Twitter

leave a comment »

I finally joined Twitter so I can not Tweet while I not blog.

The “You might also want to follow:” feature is hilarious.

I follow Glenn Reynolds @instapundit, Twitter says, “You might also want to follow: Eric Martin ‏ @EricMartin24 Senior Editor of The Progressive Realist”

No, I think not.

I follow Adam Baldwin @adamsbaldwin, Twitter says, “You might also want to follow: The Fix ‏ @TheFix WaPo’s Chris Cillizza”

Seriously?

I follow Monty @AoSHQDOOM, Twitter says, “You might also want to follow: NBCOlympics ‏ @NBCOlympics NBCOlympics.com is the exclusive US home to 2012 London Olympics coverage and the only place to watch LIVE video.Come and explore London 2012 with us.”

I guess Twitter has similar reservations about the Olympics as Romney.

I follow James Pethokoukis @JimPethokoukis, Twitter says, “You might also want to follow: Kevin Hart ‏  @KevinHart4real”

Other than them both being men who use Twitter, what do they have in common?  Okay, Twitter suggested Kevin Hart again after I followed Walter Olson.  What am I missing here?

My favorite related tweet:

P.S. His whine in the video about being outspent $4 million to $34 million is pure garbage.

If Supermarkets Were Like Public Schools

leave a comment »

From Greg Mankiw’s blog we get a look at an excellent piece from the Wall Street Journal’s Donald Boudreaux:

If Supermarkets Were Like Public Schools

As for the handful of radicals who call for total separation of supermarket and state—well, they would be criticized by almost everyone as antisocial devils indifferent to the starvation that would haunt the land if the provision of groceries were governed exclusively by private market forces.

Read the whole thing, twice.

Quote of the day

leave a comment »

Not this day, but Friday.  Frank J reads the news:

Something like 80% of people approved of Obama taking out Osama (which seems kind of low, actually), but Ron Paul has decided to go after that other 20% since… you know… he’s a serious presidential candidate. He said he would not have approved that raid… I guess because it wasn’t backed by gold. RON PAUL!

I do wonder at that 20%. This is something like the third thing that President Obama has ever done right, and one out of five Americans didn’t approve?

He doth make me bust a gut

Borepatch has come up with an absolutely hysterical twist on a beloved scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail: I told you, We’re an anarcho-syndicalist commune…
