This Shark Broke Into A Cage…With A Diver Still INSIDE

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again — I’m terrified of the ocean.

Of course, sharks play a big role in that fear. While I understand that they aren’t as bad as people paint them to be, there’s no way I’d ever go swimming anywhere near them. I just can’t risk something like this happening.

During a recent shark cage diving trip in Guadalupe Island in Mexico, things went very, very wrong for diver Ming Chan. As he was watching great white sharks that were swimming just outside of his cage, one of them lunged at the bait tied there and broke in.

While the man who filmed all of this says that the shark was likely just confused and couldn’t swim backwards, that doesn’t make this any less horrifying.

Luckily, Chan is a very experienced dive instructor and reacted quickly by swimming to the outside of the cage’s bottom as this happened.

He is completely unharmed and says that this experience has definitely not scared him away from future diving trips. He is a much braver person than I will ever be.

David Corn calls Sarah Palin stupid for telling the truth about the debt ceiling!/DavidCornDC/status/389858180521410560

Mother Jones’ David Corn took an opportunity today to partake in one of the sacraments of modern liberalism: Irrationally insulting Sarah Palin’s intelligence. Of course, as with most people who attempt that act, Corn ended  up making himself look stupid by getting his facts wrong.

In his attempt to bash Palin’s interpretation of the debt ceiling debate, Corn messed up his definition of the debt ceiling so badly that it’s laughable. Blasting Palin for her supposedly-moronic statement that, “the very reason why you raise the debt limit is so that you can incur more debt,” Corn insists that raising the ceiling only means paying down existing debt. Of course, he totally misses the point that the term “debt ceiling” signifies an upper limit on the amount of debt that can be incurred. Therefore, raising said ceiling is, by definition, allowing more debt.

Modern politicians have a tendency to raise the debt ceiling in order to create new debt to pay off old debt, but that doesn’t mean more debt isn’t being created. It’s like charging your credit card bills to a new credit card, and it’s absurd that our nation has reached the point that the only way we can pay off old debt is by incurring more debt.!/tmflancaster/status/389864660931215360!/napierc78/status/389921695483838465!/debitking/status/389921951226937345

Moody’s credit rating agency is with Palin on this, by the way. Here’s what it says:

The debt limit restricts government expenditures to the amount of its incoming revenues; it does not prohibit the government from servicing its debt. There is no direct connection between the debt limit (actually the exhaustion of the Treasury’s extraordinary measures to raise funds) and a default.

So, David Corn, your absurd need to catch Sarah Palin in a misstatement puts you in direct opposition to the economic eggheads at Moody’s. Nice work, genius.

The sip heard ’round the world: Rubio drinks water; Media dutifully carry water!/hale_razor/status/301554858773868546

Boom! It’s not surprising that tweet is at 560 retweets and counting. And once again, Twitter was prescient.

AWESOME Rubio speech. Our pathetic media will make his water break the biggest story.

— Jon Gabriel (@ExJon) February 13, 2013

… and now everyone is going to talk about Rubio drinking water instead of the subject matter of this awesome speech. #MSM #SOTU

— Madeleine McAulay (@m_mcaulay) February 13, 2013

And now the media will focus in on why Rubio needed that drink of water.

— Eric(@eriContrarian) February 13, 2013

Marco Rubio delivered a response to the State of the Union address last night that many conservatives described as “awesome.” But judging by the media coverage, it looks like he simply sidled up to the cameras and took a sip of water before preparing to slink away in shame and defeat.

Awkward Rubio drink

— Jon Passantino (@passantino) February 13, 2013

BREAKING: Suspected human being Marco Rubio quenches thirst with … gasp! … water!

Breaking: Marco Rubio is so extreme he quenches his thirst with Dihydrogen monoxide.

— Jonah Goldberg (@JonahNRO) February 13, 2013

Not so breaking: Once again, the palace guard media are carrying Obama’s water. “SQUIRREL!” of the day:

Oh, I get it. The press wants to ignore the content of Rubio’s speech or that he might be more dynamic than Obama, so WATER.

— Melissa Clouthier (@MelissaTweets) February 13, 2013

MEDIA: Substantively, Rubio is attempting to draw a distinction between the GOP vision and Oba….WATER!!!!!

— John Podhoretz (@jpodhoretz) February 13, 2013

Media won’t let a collapsing economy distract from Obama’s message, but a sip of water will be used to define Rubio thru 2016.

— John Nolte(@NolteNC) February 13, 2013

if only they weren’t so predictable RT @nathanwurtzel: FOX 5 morning news hits Rubio on water. No mention of speech contents.

— Prudence Paine (@PruPaine) February 13, 2013

.. I listened to Rubio’s speech on radio and he sounded fine and did a great job. MSM play by play TV focuses on a glass of water. #SOTU

— Jimi(@Jimi971) February 13, 2013

Lies and obfuscation pour from Obama’s mouth yet MSM is focusing on Rubio’s water moment? MSM is worthless. #tcot #TGDN

— Melissia (@ProudoftheUSA) February 13, 2013

Hard-hitting stuff: RT @politico: State of the Union: Speech not @marcorubio’s only water moment:

— Samuel (@SARosado) February 13, 2013

Wouldn’t it be something if the mainstream ‘news’ media showed even a passing interest in the actual contents of Rubio’s speech?

— Kevin Eder (@keder) February 13, 2013

Meanwhile @morningjoe producers literally ran the Rubio water drink on a loop while old (plagiarizing) man @mikebarnicle & others LAUGHED.

— Rick(@StrokesofCandor) February 13, 2013

It’s not surprising that the MSM was obsessed with @marcorubio and water last night — the media carries water for @barackobama everyday.

— Miké (@ThePantau) February 13, 2013

If your reaction to Rubio’s speech includes “…. But the sip of water took away…” you are part of the problem.

— RB (@RBPundit) February 13, 2013

If Marco Rubio’s rolling water bottle can occupy the media more than the substance of Obama’s speech, then perhaps we are winning.

— Jack Blair (@JackBlair69) February 13, 2013

Rubio laughed it off today as he made the morning show rounds.

Rubio brought his water bottle to the @gma hit. “I needed water, what am I going to do? God has a funny way of reminding us we’re human.”

— Rick Klein (@rickklein) February 13, 2013

On reaching for water at the podium, Sen. Marco Rubio: “Just glad the water was nearby, I don’t know what I would have done without it.”

— CBS This Morning (@CBSThisMorning) February 13, 2013

Love RT @mediaite: Sen. Rubio Follows Up On His SOTU Response On Fox & Friends — With Water Bottle In Hand… (VIDEO)

— Tabitha Hale (@TabithaHale) February 13, 2013

Many think the focus on Rubio’s “drinking problem” is an embarrassing miscalculation on the part of Obama’s water carriers.

The press is trying hard to avoid the content of Rubio’s speech, but the water stuff is actually making Rubio more likable to the public.

— AG (@AG_Conservative) February 13, 2013

Hey, that water moment illustrated that Rubio is, indeed, human. #ThankGodForThat

— Rachelle Friberg (@RachelleFriberg) February 13, 2013

Sen. Rubio did well and spoke in a language Republicans need to learn better as a party. Also, drinking the water was a human moment. #sotu

— Bryan Myrick (@BryanMyrick) February 13, 2013

We suspect it will be quite a while before the media’s “Water-gate” well runs dry.

Update: Tuesday night in a nutshell:

Summary of media coverage of SOTU and Republican response:Rubio drinks water. Obama walks on it.@twitchyteam
