[links] Link salad dethrones the dictaphone

My post on persistence as a writing success factor has gotten a lot of link love: [ jlake.com | LiveJournal ] — Joe Bob says check it out.

Big Guns: 1917 — More Shorpy goodness.

Giant snake fossil hints at a hotter future — The intersection of paleontology and climatology. Fascinating.

Today’s GOP: Hoping for the Worst — Sad, sobering and right on the money. Are you proud of your Republican party?

Obama plans review of faith-based policies — Not as hopeful as the headline makes it out to be, but this story does look like a step in the right direction.

Obama puts the heat on Republicans — Go get ’em, tiger. Though my favorite sentence in the story is this one: Moderates from both parties have complained about spending projects, such as smoking-cessation programs, that don’t seem geared to giving the economy a jolt. It disingenuously implies there are moderates in the Republican Party, sustaining the press’s ongoing pro-conservative narrative of false equivalency in political goodwill between the sides.

From One-Party Rule to Cry-Baby Caucus — Bipartisanship the way Republicans played it. Useful reading for those of you under the illusion that the Democrats are mistreating the GOP minority. Unless, of course, you’re not interested in the actual political history of this past decade.

    Dethrone the dictaphone? Never happen. Just switch to digital.

    The best thing Obama could do would be to GET RID of the Office of Faith Based Initiatives. The whole thing was simply a way for Shrubus Minimus and “Swingin'” Dick Cheney to shovel government money to their political supporters and have it crammed into partisan Republican causes in turn.
