[links] Link salad for a Saturday

Don’t forget the Tourbillon Tuckerization poll.

A short history of modern finance — A complex topic approached with a fair amount of clarity. (Thanks to lt260.)

Worm Grunting: A Mystery Solved — I didn’t even know it was a mystery. Weird science and weird culture, mixed together. And who thought of this in the first place, anyway?

Report says Arctic temperatures at record highs — Apparently even the weather has joined the liberal conspiracy on climate change. Rush Limbaugh to Ice Station Zebra, stat! (Thanks to lt260.)

Palling around with terrorists — McCain and G. Gordon Liddy. Guess it’s just not the same kind of treason if your terrorist-of-choice is a conservative. More on the nearly absolute lack of coverage of this story from Your Liberal Media.

Reporter assaulted at Palin rally — Fire up the wingnut base, they get fired up. GOP: you own all of this.

Ignoring its own reporting, NY Times omitted key facts on ACORN voter registration allegations — Your Liberal Media, propping up the conservative narrative again even though the facts are biased against the GOP.

Palin discovers pro-America parts of the United States — “We believe that the best of America is in these small towns that we get to visit, and in these wonderful little pockets of what I call the real America, being here with all of you hard working very patriotic, um, very, um, pro-America areas of this great nation.” Which would make the rest of us…anti-America? I’m pretty sure her husband was a long-time member of one of the few anti-American political parties in this country.

An oldie but a goodie from a conservative stalwart — “It doesn’t say anywhere in the Constitution this idea of the separation of church and state.” (Sean Hannity) And here I thought conservatives were strict constructionists.

    Yes, the GOP owns all the fringe violence that will inevitably manifest from all the hate rhetoric, but what no one says or acknowledges is the sick fact that the GOP is proud of this. It loves this kind of dark power.

    TAXI TO THE DARK SIDE, folks. It ain’t CASH CAB.
