Mahmood Ahmadinejad wants to ride a rocket into space in place of a monkey.

Pretty funny if you ask me, and actually I’m in favor of it.  Load him up and let him fly.

John McCain thought it was pretty funny too, and tweeted (via Twitchy)

That’s how many Twitter followers we have as of this writing for Legal Insurrection and College Insurrection, respectively.

If you are not on Twitter, you need to be.  It’s easy, you can use the same fake name you use here.

Roger Cohen was among the worst of the delusional dreamers about the nature of the Islamist uprising in Egypt.

I frequently have quoted this prediction by Cohen on February 3, 2011:

Already we hear the predictable warnings from Israel’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu: This could be Iran 1979, a revolution for freedom that...

In addition to taking a look at our Blog Friends in Israel, I’ve created this Twitter widget of news sources for the latest.

I have not embedded the #PillarOfDefense hashtag because hastags can get hijacked by hostile Twitter users.

Obama was much more animated, and I’m sure liberals on Twitter and elsewhere were happy much as during the Biden-Ryan debate. But I don’t think it helped Obama much. I’ll be interested to see the focus groups and polling.

Obama got in some one liners, but Romney completely nailed it...

Assessment — Not sure how to rate this. I wonder how Biden’s constant laughing, smirks, and bombastic language (“bunch of malarkey”) played with the viewers.

Biden also talked over Ryan constantly, and the moderator often cut short Ryan’s answers. Ryan also didn’t get a chance to respond to many of...

There is no question that Scott Brown won the debate last night.

It wasn’t a knock out.  As Howie Carr correctly notes, a man can’t get away with hitting a woman too hard in a debate:
