The Vancouver Scrum

On the move!

Agh! You’re still here? My new site and weblog, is now up and running; new posts are building up over there, never to be mirrored here. Go! What are you waiting for? All the stuff worth keeping has been migrated over to the new server, and I don’t anticipate making any more posts here.

Bloggers and webmasters: Update your links! Simply replace with in your blogrolls or bookmarks to point to the new site. Old posts will remain on this server for as long as the people at Blogger/Google allow them to remain; unfortunately, I’m not going to bother to come up with any way of converting permalinks on this blog to their corresponding posts on the new site. Yes, I plead laziness. I also realize the irony of switching away from Blogger just it starts to add features that the demanding blog nerds insist upon.

Thanks for reading and linking, and see you over at!

The folks over at TAPPED, institutional weblog of The American Prospect, notice that a New York Sun article on the spat between investigative journo Seymour Hersh and uberhawk Richard Perle (and Perle's pending lawsuit against Hersh over allegations that Perle has been positioning himself to personally profit from a war against Iraq) is little more than a platform for Perle and his buddies to sling mud at the internationally-respected Hersh. Shocking, I tell you! An article in a neoconservative media organ like the NY Sun being slanted and one-sided? Couldn't imagine it... Some of you bright readers might have noticed the byline on that Sun story: No, your eyes do not deceive you,.It really is a "news" article by former Canadian Alliance and Ontario Tory youth organizer Adam Daifallah, better known to Canadians as one of the handful of young activists trotted out by the Reform-Alliance in an attempt to convince Canadians that the party is not solely that of grumpy old white men, but also the party of grumpy old white men in training. Seems that Daifallah has found his calling -- working as a 'journalist' at one of the establishments that exists thanks to the patronage of wealthy conservatives. Good for him, I suppose.

Shit, why didn't I think of that? Maybe I ought to start cranking out uninspired right-wing fare under a nom de plume.
