Treat yourself to this little impulse buy that’s being advertised on QVC right now.  (Note the price.)

Gingrich v. Greenwald – The “Liberal Media”?

You probably heard about this all day long today on the “liberal media:”  It’s from Newt.

Newt re racism 5-27

On the flip side,  I’m willing to bet that you haven’t heard anything — not one word — about this from Glenn Greenwald:

Why Do Dogs Eat Mud?

One of my two dogs eats mud, or is it grass?  I don’t know for sure.  All I know is that she plants the tip of her mug on the ground, roots around, and lo and behold, seconds later, the grass is gone and there’s a little divot in that spot.

What the?

She has done this dozens of times. My yard looks like it’s been hit by a spray of tiny bombs because of the crater-like things she leaves behind

Does anyone have info, suggestions or expertise as to what might be going on here?


Thanks in advance.

Sonia Sotomayor is Bad Because She Spends Too Much (of Her Own!) Money?

That’s right.  It’s come to this.  Greg Mankiw’s grandma didn’t like big spenders so Sonia’s bad.  And that’s that.

(Someone, anyone, please — refresh my memory and provide links, please — re trash talk as to how Roberts, Scalia or Thomas spent their (own) money.)

CNN Lifts Content From TPM Without Giving Credit

CNN picks up TPM’s Sestak scoop — makes no mention of TPM.

Whooh!  We have another Maureen Dowd moment.

The corporate media, with its endless resources and hundreds of employees sprinkled all over the globe steals from a blog?  That suggests a massive failure of  imagination and a lack of good, old fashioned investigative reporting instincts.

These bastards need to get the fuck out there and do their damn job.  Enough already with this brain-dead idea of reading tweets and Facebook comments as if they’re “news” and then, stealing from blogs to prove you’re legit?

This is a fascinating moment in history.  Two or three years ago the corporate media accused bloggers of being dependent upon, and stealing from them.  Now, the corporate media is beginning to steal from bloggers.  Stay tuned.

Rush Limbaugh Says the GOP is an “Oppressed Minority”

Limbaugh:  DC is “Old South” for GOP, who is an “oppressed minority” in need of a “civil rights movement.”

They.  Are.  Going. Crazy. And they’re cracking up so soon.  We went eight long years without getting this loony.
