Rule 5 Sunday

By Smitty
Tearing myself away from writing an annotated bibliography for a course I'm taking, why not do something pleasant, which refreshes the soul, and brightens moods the blogosphere over? Yes, it's Rule 5 Sunday time. These gems have been queuing up since the last outing. Your submissions are sought, at smitty1e. To the posts!
  • The Traitors Among Us gets us going in fine form, with Carrie-Ann Moss, leather, and a cannon. Splendid trifecta.
  • The Patriot Room, whose author is a lawyer, has a ball taking his Rule 5 racquet to court. Quite attractively, too.
  • On the topic of court-ship, props to American Power Blog for honoring Ann Althouse sporting the shiny. Blessings to you, Ann!
  • Stephen at The Liberty Papers likes Julia Roberts as Dagny in Atlas Shrugs. Smitty shrugs. Who is pleased easily is pleased often. Standards are for picky people. Has the actress a pulse?
  • HotMES proposed a rule change as a means of putting up a Catharine Zeta Jones picture. Maybe we should restrict the Rule 5 format to days ending in the letter "y." It's a thought.
  • Dave C, unconcerned with Atlas Shrugs, is more interested in Angie Harmon as Governor Palin. One can find no fault with this.
  • Tigerhawk offers a double-entendre we can't resist: "Saturday Evening (Exploitation) Post," with Rule 5 NCAA basketball cheerleader hottage.
  • The Eye of Polyphemus offers some Sarah Palin action photos. <rant>I have a theory that you could correlate liberal media angst with BHO cock-ups, if you did some Lexis-Nexis work. Seems like every time the good POTUS raises the stupidity bar another notch, there is some story about Sarah's second-cousin's neighbor's untied shoe, and how Sarah clearly can't manage footwear, much less the Presidency.</rant>
  • Less pressed by domestic matters, The Troglopundit cruises the international political hotties scene. This is a profound example of meticulous research and worthy of renown.
  • Carol at No Sheeples Here offers a Charlotte Tea Party slideshow that fits bot the zeitgeist and our non-command of the rules.
  • Bob at Bob's Bar and Grill, in his affably daffy way, gets around to linking Patricia Heaton. You'll have to RTFP to understand the left-handed apology at work here.
  • Be sure not to miss the original inspiration, Pirate's Cove Patriotic Pinup Sunday.
  • Considering that he threw us the PityLanche, we can probably count this as Glenn Reynolds' contribution to Rule 5 Sunday.

  • Update:
  • Recent addition to the scene Trac-a-'Crat seems to be a Carl Bruni scholar.
  • Serr8d contributes a somber review of the lovely Farrah Fawcett, whose cancer has returned. Blessing on you, Farrah.
  • We heartily approve of Paco's retro taste. More, please!
  • Pat down in Shreveport bends it like what's-his-name.
  • Finally, The Purple Center joins the fray with something that is both Rule 5 and newsworthy, so let's get in a late shout.
Bring out your links...bring out your liiinks...


  1. Robert,

    Thought I'd call your attention to a near hobocide that occurred in Seattle last week. The article says a similar incident happened about a month previously.

  2. Carla Bruni demands inclusion (please)!

  3. "Nothing wrong" with Angie Harmon as Sarah Palin? She's pretty, gorgeous hair, but is a STICK compared to Palin. Besides, she's got one of the best voices of all time, and it would be a shame to hear her distort it in order to imitate Palin.

  4. Help us newbies out...What's a Rule 5 and a Rule 2, etc.?
