Boy, there’s a lot of serious blogging going on at blogs not called TrogloPundit today
All kinds of good, serious blogging about real, serious issues out there today.
- Marathon Pundit has first-hand reporting of Christian ministers advocating theft, plus an upcoming milestone for the Occupy “movement.”
- Dan Riehl (who blogs like he’s growling at you through clenched teeth) has leapt headlong from the Perry bandwagon (vaulting over me running alongside it) and somersaulted into a perfect landing through the Gingrich-mobile’s sunroof.
- Stacy and Smitty of The Other McCain are doing their usual blanket coverage of the GOP primary and philosophical cage fighting over Constitutional first principles.

Oh, fine, she was in “Van Helsing” – another crappy movie – and she’s going to be in the “Total Recall” remake. Fine. “Resident Evil” is still more fun.
In other Trog Distraction News today, former MMA fighter Gina Carano’s new film “Haywire” was released yesterday.
Oops, she got a run in her stocking.
I won’t see this movie, more than likely, unless somehow it shows up playing in my house and I didn’t have to pay for it, and there’s no football on. I only mention it in context with those other movies, and because I wonder what it’ll mean for sales of the Gina Carano Action Figure:
