NOT PC's week: 15-22 August

Another week in which top sport dominated the attention of most rational people, and politics was delegated (mostly) to its rightful place.  But a few moments of political madness still slipped through the net ...

  1. Tragedy on the mountain
        A storm on a mountain generated another storm here in the comments: What did you first think of  when you heard there was tragic news emerging from the Prime Minister's tramping party?
  2. Wake up warmists
        Here's a few updates on the collapsing of the warmist mantra, which in a more rational world would presage the collapsing of the bipartite political stampede towards an Emissions Trading Scam.  Sadly, etc...
  3. Aren't we over the bloody haka yet?
        It gets done when visitors arrive. It gets done when they leave. It gets done before sports games.  It gets done after sports games. It gets done to show respect. It gets done to show disrespect. It gets done to say, "Good onya." It gets done to say, "Fuck you."
        Aren't we over the bloody haka yet?
  4. "Sea level is not rising"
        It's time to feel sorry for warmists.  Their most cherished beliefs are under threat, poor dears.  The Globe is not "Warming," alas, so all they can do is assert "There is a warming trend."  And sea levels are not rising, so all they can do is pretend.  
         No wonder the warmists are getting more shrill.
  5. Amazing sporting weekend
        Has there ever been a more comprehensive weekend of NZ sporting achievement!
  6. Who's Christine Caughey?
        Who's Christina Caughey?  She's the silly bint who wants the internet "regulated" -- from little old New Zealand! -- to stop bloggers and internet sites saying nasty things about self-important small-time busybodies like herself.

All this, with lashings of great Olympian-themed sculpture thrown in!  What more could a reader ask for. Enjoy your weekend. :-)

Clearly the lady has a limited grasp of how that inter-web thing works.
