The Daily Link

This isn't going to be as easy as it seems. In order to find a cool site, you really have to wade through a lot of crap. I just spent the better part of an hour reading deranged rants from the unstable right (giving me new appreciation for O'Reilly's balance). Well, when all else fails, turn back to the Aussies.

Today's link: Whom Gods Destroy.

Active since: January 2002

Tag: None, but there's this quality proviso: "Full access to this blog requires a one-time-only registration as a reader. Once on my 'user list' your access becomes seamless. If you find that inconvenient, unusual or weird, then don't bother, but that's the way it is."

The blogger is a financier who "supports the labor movement in Australia." Proof that we've wandered away from the moral clarity of our own shores, where financiers are Republicans whose support of laborers extends about as far as five bucks an hour. He is also, obviously, idiosyncratic. His prose is both jaunty and dense--you don't know what he's talking about, but it's fun reading, anyway.

Trenchant quote: "Let's start off with the latest from the Intelligence furore and this headline from the ABC - Howard disputes intelligence concerns. Well, bugger me! I'd have thought he'd just roll over. Why not order yet another legal opinion, Johnny? After all, you're still out-numbered by two opinions to one and I'm certain there are political opponents in the legal profession you haven't managed to defame yet."

Enjoy.
