Just Calling It As I See It

December 31, 2007

I just thought I’d post something that I feel strengthens my status as a bit of a maverick when it comes to blogging on political issues. 

The other day, I received another “hat tip” from Noel Sheppard at, for pointing out that the netizens at Daily Kos (dubbed Kossacks) don’t seem to follow their own rules:

Hmmm. So even the Great Kos recognizes how “unreliable” articles from Jason Leopold are.

As this diary was HIGHLY recommended by hundreds of Kossacks, it will be very interesting to see if they all get banned.

Thanks for the great catch, CZ.

Now, I’m not sure he’s aware of it, but this is the same Noel Sheppard that I called out over there for overly gratuitous use of the word “delicious”: Noel Sheppard’s favorite adjective? 

Just for the record.

And, also for the record, the reason why I was aware of diary protocols over at Daily Kos is because I am, in fact, a Kossack


Noel Sheppard’s Favorite Adjective

December 18, 2007

As I mentioned a little while back, I was approved for an account on the righty media watchdog site NewsBusters.  I kinda like the site, so I hope that this post doesn’t put my membership in jeopardy.  After all, this is just an observation, but it didn’t take long for me to notice that Noel (one of the site’s prominent front-page contributors) appears to like to use the word “delicious” (or “deliciously”) when he posts: 

Clinton Front Group Cherry-picks a Fight with NewsBusters

…More deliciously…

Matthews Panel Hates Hillary, Hearts Huckabee

…Deliciously, when Sullivan said…

Plummeting Ratings Cause NBC to Give Refunds to Advertisers

…As deliciously reported

…possibly more delicious side of this story…

…deliciously smacked down…

 David Gregory Slams Both Clintons for Bill’s Iraq War Flip-flop

…How delicious…

…As deliciously reported

 Helen Thomas Smacked Down by Press Secretary Perino

…watch the entire delicious exchange…

And that’s just so far in December

The best variation I’ve seen?  Why, it has to be “exquisitely delicious“!

Of course, I couldn’t help but ponder the question:  What the heck is so yummy over there?
