LACI DECAPITATED: If I had

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 11:35 pm

LACI DECAPITATED: If I had a publicity guy in charge of publicizing this blog, he would tell me: “Write more stuff about Laci Peterson getting decapitated.” See, I have a site tracker that tells me, among other interesting information, what searches people use to find this site. Turns out that “Laci + decapitated” is a popular Google search nowadays. Apparently, when I wrote a post about the idiot NOW representative who complained about murder charges for the killing of Laci’s fetus, I used the words “Laci” and “decapitated” in close proximity. That got the attention of a lot of people who were looking for information about Laci being decapitated. Probably they were trying to find out whether Laci really had been decapitated. (Sorry — I have no inside scoop.)

Well, I am not a whore, and I refuse to write posts including the search terms “Laci” and “decapitated” simply to get more hits on the site. If you want to read about Laci getting decapitated, you’ll have to go somewhere else. (Unless, that is, the subject of whether Laci was decapitated just happens to come up naturally.)

UPDATE: While I am on the subject: has it been conclusively established whether Laci indeed was decapitated? I know there were reports to that effect early on, but I have not really followed the story thoroughly. Has there been official confirmation of this? Someone please click on the “E-mail me” link on the left margin of this blog, and fill me in on this important information, so I can keep my readers informed.

THE SHARK CATCHES ROBERT SCHEER

THE SHARK CATCHES ROBERT SCHEER WITH HIS PANTS DOWN: The always recommended Shark Blog has a priceless post here that exposes Robert Scheer for the ass he is.

The relevant quotes:

Scheer — Jan 7, 2003:

However, the viewing public doesn’t seem to understand that what is being planned by our president is not Gulf War II — a swift punch in the mouth to our old ally Hussein — but rather a multiyear occupation by the U.S. of an independent, powerful and modern Muslim nation rife with ethnic tension.

Scheer — April 22, 2003:

Of course, our vaunted intelligence forces knew well … that Iraq had been reduced by two decades of wars, sanctions and arms inspections to a paper tiger . . .

JUAN WILLIAMS ON SANTORUM: I

JUAN WILLIAMS ON SANTORUM: I just watched Juan Williams on Special Report with Brit Hume. Juan is critical of Rick Santorum because, he says, he doesn’t understand why Santorum can’t distinguish between homosexuality and polygamy — after all, polygamy is illegal!

Of course, so is homosexual sodomy — in Texas. And, of course, Santorum’s entire point was that if you create a right of privacy for all sexually related conduct between consenting adults, you couldn’t make polygamy illegal.

Other than those minor issues, Juan makes an excellent point.

Juan Williams — not the sharpest tack in the box.

MORE STORIES OF TORTURE BY

MORE STORIES OF TORTURE BY SADDAM HUSSEIN: Can be read here, if you really want. It’s pretty gruesome. Quotes abound such as: “I thought they were going to fix my eye . . . but when I woke up I had just one eye left. They had cut the other one out.” Another guy’s tongue was cut out (you know, because he had allegedly used it to criticize Saddam). The article says that “the fedayeen officer who cut the tongue held it up to the crowd and shouted, ‘You see this? This will be the fate of anyone who dares insult the president.’ He then threw the bit of flesh on the ground; another fedayeen officer scooped it up and said it would be given to Uday Hussein as a present.”
