Back from vacation

After the game

The clock reached zero; the horn blew; the basketball game was over. The score was the most lopsided ever, 200-01. The crowd cheered. The press interviewed the winning coach and some of the key players on the winning side. The triumphant team left the stadium and went out for pizza.

The lights were turned off, but the losing team refused to leave the stadium. The were convinced they had the winning team, the winning strategy, and they were the rightful winners; the referees were dishonest, and the scorekeeper too. They said that when the winning team left to go get pizza, they had given up, and admitted defeat.

Home again

That’s how something I heard last night on RC’s radio show struck me. Reportedly, Sharon Rondeau, writing for the Post & Email blog (a pay site that I don’t subscribe to), used my recent article, “Blog on vacation” as a jumping off point for an article whose theme was rather like the losing team saying that the winners had given up in my little story preceding. Rondeau’s point was that a number of the blogs I listed as things to read while I was on vacation, haven’t published anything lately. Some of them have never published frequently and some have been quiet of late. (Others are as busy as ever.) Rondeau takes this is a sign that the Obots have given up in disarray. I think we’re celebrating over pizza.23


1100 =  198 lawsuits plus 2 elections.

2Rondeau also reportedly said that the web site The Daily Pen is an Obot front operation. If it is, it is highly successful, having fooled Mike Zullo and Jerome Corsi into republishing faked government documents.

3The Bad Fiction site has more detailed coverage of what Rondeau said.

    I assume you’re alluding to the comment on RC’s show last night, or the same idea from elsewhere, where some of Orly Taitz’ writing was fed into a reading level evaluator.

    I didn’t say anything then, but I thought that the exercise was silly. Writing something hard to read doesn’t make one smart, or indicate a proficiency in English.

    The articles on this site vary widely as to reading level. The last time I checked a significant sample of articles (August 2011), I came up with a an 11th grade average, which was just a little bit below Jerome Corsi (PhD Harvard) writing for WND.

    As I have said before: “Anomalous multisyllabic words exemplified by “crepuscular,” appearing in sentences lengthier than characteristic sentences in an article, can bias the Flesch-Kinkaid readability results towards a higher reading level than one otherwise resulting from the analysis of material in a publication. ”

    When writing for a general audience, that’s the goal. And that’s a readability score. You also failed to cite which standard you were applying. Tsk, tsk, you really are “Not Capable”! :P

    Yet, you failed to grasp the point.

    For articles about health issues the Federal government recommends writing at the 6th or 7th grade level.

    I guess that would be you since most people learned far earlier that sentences start with a capitalized letter.

    It’s also funny the Doc has been correct about all of Orly’s cases before she herself knew the outcome.
    If he’s dumb, I sure want him to pick some lottery numbers for me.
    Choosing 200 outcomes out of 200 tries is beyond what any psychic has ever done.

    Welcome back! I was hoping you might give a shout out to the anti-birther petition. Let them file their suits, but at least make them pay for it.

    I think I started the conversation when caller Veritasitas commented that she had no idea how Orly could pass the bar exam. I agreed it was a miracle given that Orly writes and speaks as if English is a second or third language for her. Law, unlike professions such as dentistry or real estate, is practiced in English and requires a mastery of that particular language in this country.
