Tuesday Tidbits

As the Margaret Wente plagiarism story finally hits the mainstream, she discovers a lone defender...yeah,  Ezra Levant, and for him it really all comes down to The Muslims.   Ah well, as Ms. Wente herself once wrote: "It was the best of times; it was the worst of times." (PS.  I stole that joke off an anonymous blogger.)

Speaking of Ezra, Bernie Farber Nate Leipciger and Avrum Rosensweig take him to task here over his anti-Roma rantings.  Worth pointing out that here as with the early days of Wente-gate, Canada's little tribe of media folk said nothing.  Presumably, a CRTC complaint will make them sit up and take note.  Although, from Bernie and company's column it sounds like Roma community leaders have not yet decided whether or not to file a police complaint.

Meanwhile, in non-Ezra-Levant-related news, I think we have the quote of the millennium:

“When you have a fire in an aircraft, there’s no place to go, exactly,” Mitt [Romney] told the LA Times in an interview. “You can’t find any oxygen from outside the aircraft to get in the aircraft, because the windows don’t open. I don’t know why they don’t do that. It’s a real problem.”

If this doesn't disqualify the guy for president, I don't know what will.  I wouldn't trust him with the window seat on a Cessna, let alone The Button.
