Aunt Bernice: “The government’s been overthrown, and guess who’s responsible.”
Ajax: “Wait! I know this. Eli Whitney? Harriet Beecher Stowe? Aaron Burr?”
Aunt Bernice: “No, Ajax.”
Ajax: “Unless it’s someone named Isosceles Triangle, I’ve wasted a whole year of school.”

Hmmmm . . . .

Ron Rosenbaum’s Pajamas Media column has been quite a bore lately, with the last ten posts (at least) trashing Tea Partiers and those who fail to denounce them. Now all his links (drop-down, fixed picture, and scrolling picture) have disappeared from the Pajamas front page and the PajamasXpress page. His last ten posts are still available through the direct link, but the comments don’t work, and I don’t see any way to get to the previous posts. (Archive and comment links now lead to the PajamasMedia front page.) I suppose we can always use the Wayback machine.

Oddly, Rosenbaum’s Wikipedia entry does not mention Pajamas Media in either the present or past tense. It does mention a Slate column, and his latest column there is a good one.
