What If Male Superheroes Posed Like Wonder Woman On The David Finch Justice League Cover? — Beverage warning on this one. (Snurched from @lilithsaintcrow.)

A Wall to Remember an Era’s First Exiles — Japanese Americans on Bainbridge Island.

Genetically Engineered, Glow-In-The-Dark Beagle Created By South Korean Scientists

Third-party challenge in 2012? Not likely, experts say — In our system, third party votes are throwaways. In 2000, a vote for Nader was effectively a vote for Bush, precisely the opposite of what the vast majority of Nader voters intended.

The tea party just cost you $322 — History is not going to be kind to the politics of our era.

The Madman Theory — Nixon was a liberal?

Adventures in tea-party cognitive dissonance — I beg to differ. It’s hard to have cognitive dissonance in absence of coherent cognition. (Snurched from Steve Buchheit.)

The Defeat of Flood Geology — Unfortunately, you can’t defeat wilful ignorance. If it was possible to overcome that from the outside, the conservative movement would be a handful of cranks meeting in Denny’s every Saturday morning.

Texas Rally Renews Debate Over the Boundaries of Perry’s Faith — This would be the same Rick Perry who when asked in 2002 how his faith informed his politics, he replied, “I don’t think it does, particularly.” The cynical opportunism of religious conservatives in politics isn’t usually quite so blatant. Note that Your Liberal Media didn’t mention this little fact in covering his commitment to religion in this election cycle.

  1. Coffee that turns your blood to ink, so that you have a plentiful supply.

    What cracked me up most about the tea partiers want more aircraft carriers article is the assumption that building aircraft carriers will automatically create jobs in America.

    The aircraft carriers themselves would be built at American shipyards simply for security reasons. But the steel would most probably be procured from whoever the cheapest supplier is and that’s most likely not the US steel industry. In short, building US aircraft carriers would create jobs in steel mills – in China or India.

    Never mind that the American obsession with aircraft carriers looks very odd from a non-US perspective anyway.
