I am going to climb out on a limb and say that without the blogosphere an asinine comment by Alcee Hastings in support of Barack Obama's candidacy would not morph into a debate over whether moose meat can be kosher. Who is going to argue that this is not a great thing?
CWCID: Glenn Reynolds, who makes an especially bad pun.
Moose can be kosher. After you drop Alces alces with a bullet, you have to cut the throat according to the ritual, while sort of pretending it is alive until after you have addressed the blade to throat. Muslim Arabs (who like to hunt as much as the rest of us) use the technique all the time.
