Time’s former “Blog of the Year,” the execrable PowerLine blog with which I share a state, has done it again: said something so stupid and so palpably false that I’m feeling a bit embarrassed about ragging on Oklahoma in my previous post–I should feel ashamed by association at being a Minnesotan. Check out Deltoid: down is up in the world of the Hindrocket.
I feel PZ’s pain. I share a state with Tim Blair, who has now made exactly the same blunder as Hindrocket: “An Inconvenient Truth continues cooling”. We’ll see a correction from Blair sometime around never…
Oh what? You saw this post before? Twice. Well he’s made the same “up is down” blunder again. Last time, after he had linked to a June 27 story in his first post and a similar June 26 story in his next one, I predicted:
Next month he’ll link to a June 25 story about Gore’s ticket sales.
Silly me, he linked to a June 18 story this month. And because he keeps linking to earlier and earlier stories he makes it look the total sales for An Inconvenient Truth are decreasing, prompting comments like this from his fans:
Just $6.4 million total on less than 2 millions last week? I forget, who was the troll that tried to tell us it would easily pull in tens of millions…?
Actually the total is already $17.4 million and it’s still going strong, so it will certainly pull in tens of millions. Oops.
