Atrios Threatened With Lawsuit by Paul Krugman's Stalker

Yes, just when you thought one could not sink lower in the petty pool than Bill "Shut Up" O'Reilly, you look a few fathoms lower and find Donald Luskin. What makes this worse is that Atrios blogs anonymously and has neither Al Franken's connections or bank account.

But if you Google "Donald Luskin" and "stalking" the first person who called Luskin a stalker appears to be -- Luskin himself. I hope this is just a lot of hot air. So in support of Atrios I am posting what has the funniest post ever on Luskin's preoccupation with Paul Krugman.
Seriously, I've paid less attention to girls I wanted to have sex with than Luskin does to Krugman
Well, what do you expect from someone called Midge?

Okay, that’s probably not fair. If there any readers named Midge who have not written a breathless tribute to sex god Donald Rumsfeld (I can’t believe I typed that) please accept my apologies. Still, I think you should join me in a hearty round of ewww-ing at what I can only describe as smut peddling.
She spoke of her subject admiringly, but without obvious emotion. “The key to him is that he is a wrestler,” she said. “A wrestler is a lone figure. He battles one on one, and he either wins or loses. There is only one man on the mat at the end of a wrestling match. It is no accident, as the communists used to say, that he wrestled.”

Is the whole unitard clad –man writhing with another man thing a little obvious? Okay I won’t go there.
She observed that he was called a “virtual rock star” on CNN, a “babe magnet” on Fox, and “Rumstud” by the president. He appeared in the December 2, 2002, issue of People, having been selected as one of the world’s sexiest men. “In Washington, to be anywhere he is has become chic,” a friend of Rumsfeld’s told Decter. “People actually follow him around.

Yes, you are reading that correctly. President Miserable Failure in a flight suit called him Rumstud.
Ann Coulter Yammering Doll

Just in time for the holidays. No voodoo seance would be complete without one. Spring for the Dennis Miller doll and have a grand ole dittohead bonfire. I think the dog needs a new chew toy anyway.

WARNING: Parents of teenagers, doll may promote anorexia nervosa in girls and bed wetting in boys.

Couldn’t bring myself to sit through the Dem Debate last night on Fox. I prefer my Fox News heavily filtered. I’m guessing that the logic behind this unholy alliance was to reach as many viewers as possible. I know these debates are part of the process but they discourage me in the same way that Democrat-Green Party fights do. United we stand, blah, blah, blah. Well, at least I don’t have to watch it.

Anyway Jesse condenses it nicely, so I don’t feel so guilty.
