How To Take The Credibility Of The Blogosphere Down A Notch

March 2, 2008

Having previously noted the dueling ads that are playing out in Texas, I thought I’d expand on it by highlighting a bit of unhinged blogger hysteria I happened to notice surrounding Clinton’s TV spot.   Namely, this post at Althouse: “Why are the letters ‘NIG’ on the child’s pajamas?”

*sigh*

nig.jpgNow, I’m not going to dive into the fray of painstaking analysis and (are you kidding me?) follow-up posts, but I will mention that the post was deservedly mocked across the political web.   I mean, are people really suggesting that the child’s pajamas were printed, stitched, and dressed in a way that allowed the camera to capture 1 second of “NiG”, presumably to plant some sort of subliminal message?  

Please, say it isn’t so.  I really don’t know what to say.  

Then again, maybe I do:

  1. I’m assuming it goes with the ht you can’t see but would logically assume is on a pair of pajamas. The vid is hilarious btw. I especially like the mouth movement without sound in classic martial arts movie dubbing.

    Yea, I added a pic for a visual aid, but you’re exactly right. The child’s PJ’s are printed with what looks like “good night” (something that Althouse conceded right away, but alas, they went ahead with the lunacy anyway).

    Re: The vid. Yea, that was the plan. I’m a little shy about putting my mug up here on the blog, out of fear of retribution somewhere in my personal life, so I decided to go with this theme. The added bonus of course is that I can use the same video to say pretty much anything I want lol. This was my first run at it, so we’ll see if I can get the creative juices flowing a bit more and come up with better stuff in the future.


  3. Since I am not allowed to have a political blog, I’ll have to release my aggression on other people’s sites. Sorry, Chen; this means you!


  4. Chen, could you possibly do a post on the bombing of the recruitment station in N.Y.? I assume that we’re on the same page – while we strongly disagree with the war, what that guy did was inexcusable.

    Since I am not allowed to have a political blog…

    Who or what is stopping you?

    I certainly haven’t endorsed bombing anything domestically here on this site, but I’ll have to check the news on this one…

    Update: Is that you kip? OK, I see what you mean now.


  6. Yep, it’s kip.
    What’s stopping me from having a political blog is a long story, but I’ll try to make it short.
    Last fall I wrote a piece on what it would be like for a sweet, little old lady who didn’t heed the preaching of fundamentalist pastors. It was pretty caustic, and a couple of days after I posted it and got a ton of pretty hateful comments, my site was banned.
    I think they must have gotten my api code or something like that, because as soon as I start a new blog with any kind of religious/political tags or anything, it gets blocked.
    I’ve had my silly little poetry site for a while, and no one’s bothering with it.
