Alright, I'm done "guesting"

Although in reality it was nice of Atrios to just tell me to blog the last couple days when it didn't turn out to be too necessary.

But before I leave, and Echidne fills in until the sweaty lug gets back to his cats, I simply must post up this insight into the one and only Hammer of the Krauts:

About three years ago, I saw Krauthammer flip out in synagogue on Yom Kippur. The rabbi had offered some timid endorsement of peace — peace essentially on Israel's terms — but peace anyway. Krauthammer went nuts. He actually started bellowing at the rabbi, from his wheel chair in the aisle. People tried to "shush" him. It was, after all, the holiest day of the year.
