On the lighter (definitely random) side

The U.S. Dept. of Defense will commission its newest attack submarine on February 19--the name of the sub is the USS Jimmy Carter. There are excellent reasons for naming a sub after our 39th president--for example, he is the only US President to have qualified in submarines (not sure what that means, but it sounds impressive).

However, among the more conservative folk on the blogosphere, there is a great deal of amusement over this announcement. Some of the best remarks can be found on NRO's group blog The Corner. A cartoon about the announcement can be found here.

By far the most amusing, however, are the snide remarks about Killer Rabbits. Having been born in the late 1970s, I was not previously aware of the event. Imagine how educated I feel having read this article! (Warning: Maybe I'm just hard up for a laugh, but this had me laughing aloud.) If you want pictures, look here.
