New Feature: Moonbat Watch

March 11, 2007

The search for the elusive ‘moonbat’ continues…..

RSS moonbat watch 

I’ve decided to take advantage of Digg’s cool RSS capabilities. and place a feed that searches for ‘moonbat’ sightings.  I’ve placed as the second to the last RSS feed in the sidebar.  I’m using this powerful tool to track stories that have ‘moonbat’ in the title or description, in the hope that it will lead me to the holy grail.  That is, solve the riddle, find the truth, and answer the eternal question:

What the hell is a moonbat? 

Update:  Wow, this thing realy works!  Today I noticed a netizen that has a particular fetish with all things ‘moonbat’, having submitted a handful of ‘moonbat’ entries to Digg within a few hours of each other: cleanshots. It was a very busy day on Digg for this person.  In fact, ‘moonbat’ was thrown around with such reckless abandon that I think we actually got a little further from finding the true meaning of the term. 

Update:  OK, I’ve located another expert in the field of moonbattery.  The blog Pirate’s Cove has two categories for ‘moonbats’: Raving Moonbats (211), and Beyond Moonbat (78) …can’t get enough of ’em.

Update:  Well, the RSS feed for the digg search for ‘moonbat’ doesn’t seem to work anymore.  I’m not sure why, but I’ve removed it from the sidebar.  I know, it stinks.


Shadow Wolves To Hunt Bin Laden

I found this interesting story on the Digg wire: Native American trackers to hunt bin Laden

WASHINGTON: An elite group of Native American trackers is joining the hunt for terrorists crossing Afghanistan’s borders.

The unit, the Shadow Wolves, was recruited from several tribes, including the Navajo, Sioux, Lakota and Apache. It is being sent to Tajikistan and Uzbekistan to pass on ancestral sign-reading skills to local border units.In recent years, members of the Shadow Wolves have mainly tracked smugglers along the US border with Mexico.

Reading this, I was instantly reminded of my childhood days of playing with and watching….. G.I. Joe:


Now you know, and “knowing is half the battle”   I wonder if they’ll bring “Billy” along?  One thing is clear; Bin Laden has a new foe, and it is G.I. Joe.  Go Joe!

Seriously though, I’m interested to see if this really works. 

Update:  Now that I think about it, I think the character “Billy” in the movie Predator was a G.I. Joe reference:


Wouldn’t the Pentagon and others want to keep something like this secret
