I'm in New York. More information soon, once I'm relocated to the first of several secure locations.

Posted by Tim Blair at July 24, 2004 02:35 AM

You're in New York? What the hell are you doing here?

"first of several secure locations"?

Did you grab an exclusive interview with Dick Cheney or something?!

Posted by: Cpl. Menno at July 24, 2004 at 02:47 AM

If I were less intoxicated, I'd post something more insightful. For now, I'll just say that Australia's beer prices are far too high.

Why not Boston?

Posted by: Parker at July 24, 2004 at 02:57 AM

Hey Tim, I sent you an email, let me know if you'd like to have a beer or something. I might be able to round up a few local LGF fans as well.

Posted by: Yehudit at July 24, 2004 at 02:58 AM

Let me be the first to insist that you go to a small cafe sixty blocks from where you are now, because they have the most incredible black-bean soup, and if you don't go there you're a moron uninterested in the *real* New York, man. Go enjoy your Disneyfied Times Square. Go on.

Posted by: Lileks at July 24, 2004 at 02:58 AM

By “secure,” Tim may mean “air-conditioned.” In the heat & humidity that we’ve been having, it’s hard to think of another reasonable interpretation.

Posted by: ForNow at July 24, 2004 at 03:02 AM


Any other locations to be visited in the US? If you come to DC let me know I will be happy to try and get together.


Posted by: Bart at July 24, 2004 at 03:15 AM

Tim is enjoying New York before the Islamofacists nuke it.

Abandon ship immediately.
Your presence is required urgently in Oz.

Dennis Lillee is standing for the executive committee of the WACA, proposed and supported by Graeme Wood (sometime brewery worker, former opening batsman for Oz and WA)

Seppo elections pale into unimportance in the face of this crisis.

Come home, vote early & vote often in the true spirit of democracy.

Let the tribal chant "Lillee-Lillee-Lillee" be heard once more throughout the land.

God-damn it Tim, you can't watch the riots from New York.

Get your arse up to Boston right now so you can get onto the floor and be the first journalist punched out at a convention since Dan Rather at Chicago in '68. What are a few teeth for an exclusive - not to mention the settlement - that'll make you really wealthy? Them Democrats are loaded.

Posted by: J F Beck at July 24, 2004 at 03:38 AM

Nah - in Boston, Tim would have to pay up for having scratched some fat union thug's knuckles with his teeth.

Posted by: R C Dean at July 24, 2004 at 03:45 AM

Thy're right. The riots are in Boston this weekend. Yankees at Red Sox.

Posted by: Eric Jablow at July 24, 2004 at 04:07 AM

Hi Tim Blair

I am new to your web site here. So far I gathered that you are a journalist from the same place I am, Australia. What I want to know is who do you work for? Or are you a freelance journalist?

Posted by: CB at July 24, 2004 at 04:24 AM

Hey welcome to the states! If you're in DC I'll buy you a round. Let me know!


Posted by: Adam Schmidt at July 24, 2004 at 04:29 AM

Hey Tim- if you all go out for a drink in NY would love to join you and others.

Posted by: Adam at July 24, 2004 at 04:36 AM

I'd be glad to buy you a cold one if you are going to be in NYC through the weekend. Thanks for all you do...

Draft Tim for a draft in DC! The Dubliner O.K.?

Posted by: Hudson at July 24, 2004 at 04:44 AM

It's pronounced "noo yawk", Tim.

Hope it helps.

Tim doesn't actually work, mostly he does lunch.

Posted by: J F Beck at July 24, 2004 at 05:09 AM


So, how's the chicken teriyaki? Pretty good, eh? Hey, check out that babe in the blue dress. They know how to dress in this town, anyway. So, anyway, I told the guy, "Not the red one, this one!" Ha! That's the last time I'll ever go there... HEY! What the hell!?!. WATCH OUT, TIM, IT'S AL GORE WITH A CHAINSAW!!! aaarrgggg!!! 631n12;sn9pxn9s=_

Posted by: Ash at July 24, 2004 at 05:33 AM


As J F Beck said. But the real reason is that Tim doesn't work for the Man, he is the Man.

If you've ever wondered how all of those world wide conspiracies co-exist, Tim is the answer. All the putative "regulars" here are really just his minions controlling various "independent" organizations -- Zionists, neo-Nazis, The Fourth International, Reuters, the Tri-Lateral Commission, vegemite distributors, etc. It's all in code, of course, to appear like it's just a bunch of rabid right wing nutjobs. I can't reveal anymore, but take it from me - if you see the word "felching" in any post or comment, get the heck out of any urban area.

Posted by: Annoying Old Guy at July 24, 2004 at 05:40 AM

I'm in for buying Tim a beer in DC too.

If you need a tourguide let me know. If your ultimate destination is Boston, I feel sorry for the DNC.

Posted by: Mahatma at July 24, 2004 at 07:01 AM

The Dubliner could work - or Capitol City Brewing Company. Of course since they're across the street from each other... [ http://www.capcitybrew.com/ ] [ http://www.phoenixparkhotel.com/dining.htm ] And of course the famous Brickskeller with its 1001 varieties of beer [ http://www.thebrickskeller.com/ ] although it’s on the other side of town.

So here's the deal – Tim, you come down to DC and all of his will get your first few rounds. Just try to smuggle in some VB and Tooheys New next time you make a trip to the states... all we can seem to get around here with an Aussie label slapped on it is Fosters!

My sources in Washington tell me that Blair and Lileks will be named Director and Assistant Director of the CIA. Mebbe' the other way around.

Great move by Dubya. It's called thinking outside of the box.

Okay, so Blair/Lileks don't know what the hell they're doing in terms of intelligence gathering (ahem) but you gotta' admit the CIA press releases will kick ass.

Tim, pass this one on to Lileks: the swan flys at midnight when the moon is blue.

Judging by the offers, Tim won't have a sober moment between now and the end of the GOP convention.

I'll be flying into New York Wednesday, but, uh, Syracuse, New York, not New York, New York. Who's buying me a beer? *crickets*

Posted by: Aaron at July 24, 2004 at 12:05 PM

PJ, I think they actually based "Crocodile Dundee" on Tim. I saw him once on one of his American tours. He was wearing a snakeskin vest. Crocodile teeth necklace. No shirt. (No pants, come to think of it. He said it was due to "national security concerns". It wasn't until Sandy Berger that I understood.)

Posted by: dorkafork at July 24, 2004 at 12:11 PM

If Tim doesn't head to DC so you guys can buy him a beer, you're welcome to buy one for me. It's the least I can do.

You're in NEW YOURK, Tim?? Oh, the horror of it all!

The weather in the Pacific Northwest is much nicer, especially in Seattle. Eastern Washington is hot, but not humid. And the beer is just as good, if not better. And we also have air conditioning! Too bad you didn't come here.

I guess you're suffering through the East Coast Weather because the RNC and DNC decided to hold their conventions there. I just hope you write Some Good Stuff to compensate for your many sacrifices.

Oh, isn't this lovely: Tim is in the States, and the Mouth of Sauron is issuing threats against OZ:

An online statement by a group representing itself as al-Qaida's European branch threatened Saturday to turn Australia into "pools of blood" if it doesn't withdraw its troops from Iraq

"We call upon you to leave Iraq before your country turns to pools of blood," the statement warned the Australian government.

"We will shake the earth under your feet as we did in Indonesia, and lines of car bombs will not cease, God willing," the statement said, referring to the 2002 Bali bombing that killed 202 people, many of them Australian tourists.

Posted by: Rob at July 25, 2004 at 08:36 PM

Mr Tony Abbott as PM would be the greatest thing that could happen to Australia (post John Howard, should he choose to retire) - he is absolutely what the world needs now - an unreconstructed social conservative.

On the other hand, Mr Peter Costello is yet to make his mind up where he stands on some issues.

Appropos of nothing, I offer this report.

John Kerry claims that he goes deer hunting with a "trusty" 12 gauge shotgun:

He was asked in the interview Sunday what kind of hunting he preferred.

"Probably I'd have to say deer. It's tough, depending on where you are," said Kerry.

"I go out with my trusty 12-gauge double-barrel, crawl around on my stomach. I track and move and decoy and play games and try to outsmart them. You know, you kind of play the wind. That's hunting," said Kerry, whose manner was relaxed as he spoke on the final day of an excursion along the scenic upper Mississippi that he seemed to take some relish in.

He's a f*cking liar.

Posted by: DrZin at July 26, 2004 at 04:14 AM

hey, it takes a real leader to baffle a deer with nuance

Posted by: Mr. Bingley at July 26, 2004 at 04:52 AM

Maybe Kerry learned to enjoy hunting like that in Vietnam. He was there, didn't you know?

Posted by: The Real JeffS at July 26, 2004 at 05:22 AM

So many things about that quote, where to begin... (psst! DrZin! drop us a link so we can read the rest of it and mock it some more!)

Anyway, to continue:

"I... crawl around on my stomach..."

You crawl around on your stomach to hunt deer? Well what do I know. Maybe he hunts the ground-dwelling mole-deer...

"...and try to outsmart them."

Kerry: Sometimes Smarter Than a Deer.

Posted by: Andrea Harris at July 26, 2004 at 05:40 AM

Full story here, I think.

(Hmm, my hometown newspaper for the next year...anybody from the area care to assess how the Journal-Sentinel ranks on the Left-O-Meter?)

Posted by: PW at July 26, 2004 at 06:29 AM

From PW's link:

Asked by a reporter in the interview how a "Boston lawyer" was going to do better in rural America than Tennessee's Al Gore, the Democratic Party's last nominee, Kerry said: "People don't judge things like that. It's too stereotyped. People judge your character and judge what you're fighting for." (Emphasis is mine)

If John Kerry is betting on his character (i.e., none) and his position (highly variable), he is going to lose.

Hmmmmmmmm.......Deja vu! Remember Dukakis during his presidential campaign, riding around on a tank, like some kid on a toy? Think Kerry on a tractor, or stalking a deer!

'Tis to laugh!

DC Crew,

Never heard of Scotland Yard (the bar in DC) either - sounds interesting though. Since Congress just went into recess I've got a much more flexible schedule for the next several weeks; so if you do all want to get together let me know when. Wonder what Tim will think when he sees that his blog has become a venue for organizing DC happy hours!


Posted by: Adam at July 26, 2004 at 07:03 AM

A quick fisk —

"I go out with my trusty 12-gauge double-barrel" OK

A 12-gauge isn't actually a bad choice for deer in close country, but you don't use buckshot (scatters in brush), you use solid slugs. And you don't use slugs in a double unless one or both barrels are "cylinder" bored, and most shotguns are bored "improved cylinder" and "modified" which means the "chokes" or muzzles are constricted too much for safe use of slugs.

"…crawl around on my stomach."

Are you kidding? I've hunted deer. I know a lot of deer hunters. You don't crawl. Crawling in second-growth brush, you can see maybe 30 feet in front of you. Also, you're just a lump crawling in the brush, other hunters will fire you up. You stand and walk, so you can look around you, or you set up in a ground or tree stand...

"I track and move and decoy and play games and try to outsmart them. You know, you kind of play the wind. That's hunting," said Kerry...

Excuse me Senator, but Charlie don't graze. What it this decoy and play games crap? You find a well-used track or a watering spot and you follow it or wait for the deer to come along.

Or you do it Kerry's way, with native beaters driving the game towards you and maybe you shoot the occasional peasant once in awhile... you know, the way of a man of the people hunts...

By the way, is there any record of Kerry ever taking out a Massachusetts hunting permit? Or in any other state?

Posted by: richard mcenroe at July 26, 2004 at 08:28 AM

Tim whatever you do - DON"T FEED THE DENIZENS OF THE

of the zone throw stuff too. Oh well.

Posted by: Mike H. at July 26, 2004 at 08:35 AM

Oh, and if you're going to hunt deer with a shotgun, you use a pump or a semi-auto so you can mount a sight on it, not a la-dee-dah double...

Posted by: richard mcenroe at July 26, 2004 at 09:05 AM

Q: Senator Kerry, why is it that such a large percentage of the American voters consider you a so-called "flip-flopper?"

Kerry: I track and move and decoy and play games . . .

Q: That does seem to be the case. But how does a politician find himself shifting so frequently and dramatically? Do you base your policy positions solely on voter opinion polls?

Kerry: You know, you kind of play the wind.

Q: That's certainly what we suspected, sir. Finally, can you tell me how you plan to win votes from a justifiably skeptical electorate?

Kerry: [T]ry to outsmart them.

Q: Good luck. That would be your best bet, Senator. Senator, we appreciate your candor. Thank you for providing us such insight today.

Posted by: DrZin at July 26, 2004 at 11:17 AM

Never hunted deer myself, but I grew up around deer hunters. I know they walked through the brush until they found a nice place to hunker down and wait for deer to come along. If they were lucky, they'd finally spy a deer that they knew for sure wasn't another hunter, and then they either shot it... or they didn't. They never ever crawled! That is, until they'd been back in camp for a few hours and polished off a six-pack or four.

Posted by: Rebecca at July 26, 2004 at 11:19 AM

Rebecca — In Georgia, they hunt from tree stands. A typical Georgia hunting party consists of a Georgia cracker, his deer gun, and a bottle of Wild Turkey. Cracker climbs the tree, drinks the bottle, then either falls out of the tree, shoots himself by accident, or falls out of the tree and shoots himself when he hits the ground.

We'd be out in the woods in Benning, playing soldier with our M16's full of blanks, and you'd hear it off in the distance, "crackle, crunch, thud BOOM"...

The local media had a special name for it, "tree-related injuries" (weren't gonna piss off the NRA or their likker-selling advertisers). They used to just treat it as a joke, well, haha, look what Bubba did again, but it happened so often that one day someone stood up in the editorial office and said, "Wait a minute, this ain't funny, this is a statistic!" so they had to come up with a fancy name for it...

Posted by: Sortelli at July 26, 2004 at 01:05 PM

Maybe JFK didn't want to offend the deer hunters or the duck hunters, so he tried to have it both ways? He's not above taking both sides of an issue, is he?

And Tim, add me to the masses that would be willing to buy you a beer in NYC.
