Open Thread

Been out of the swing of things for a little bit. What’s news these days?

UPDATE: If we need a topic, how about this one: Chris Christie gets lap-band surgery.

But we don’t really need a topic.

Ted Cruz on Being Criticized

I love Ted Cruz.

This is one guy for whom I would campaign hard if he were to run for President.

Anderson Cooper Victim of Attempted SWATting

Filed under: General — Patterico @ 7:02 am

I almost reported this last night, but the only source was a article that was very tentative in its conclusions. I see it being reported by multiple sources now, however, including the New York Post, which I will quote for the entertainment value of how wrong their facts are:

Anderson Cooper has become the latest victim of the “celebrity swatting” pranking craze — after a flurry of cops descended on his Hamptons home over a bogus report of a shooting.

It was the first time the hoax — in which pranksters create false reports of violence to trigger SWAT-like responses at celebs’ homes — had been pulled off outside Los Angeles.

That is so far from true as to be laughable.

A 911 caller last month told Southampton Town cops a man had just shot his wife at the CNN anchor’s home in Quiogue. Cops from four departments flooded the streets but found no signs of a shooting, sources said.

Interesting fact about this one that I’ll keep under wraps for now.

Here is the (partial) roll call of the SWATted: Anderson Cooper; Magic Johnson; Mike Rogers; Wolf Blitzer; Ted Lieu; Erik Rush; Ryan Seacrest; Russell Brand; Selena Gomez; Justin Timberlake; Rihanna; Sean Combs; Chris Brown; Tom Cruise; Paris Hilton; Clint Eastwood; Brian Krebs; the Jenners and Kardashians; Justin Bieber; Miley Cyrus; Ashton Kutcher; Simon Cowell; Aaron Walker; Erick Erickson; Mike Stack; and me.
