Basketball claims another (highly unlikely) ACL victim

It's more than halfway through the season, so I get it that somebody like the Spurs' M. Ginobili could be hurt at this point; or the Rockets' T. McGrady (how's Y. Read below the fold...

Once-reputable BAG News repeats big lie that Hillary called for Obama's assassination

Disgusting. If you can't hear it from me, maybe you can hear it from Bob Somerby: part 1, part 2, part 3, and part 4.

No, I really don't want to relitigate the primaries, but if you don't stomp the lies, they come back -- as we saw with CDS in the primaries.

It's a shame. I guess there's some Kool-Aid you just can't undrink. Read below the fold...

Student takeover at NYU

Interesting.

Any NY readers want to post?

Not real clear on the demands, but I like the firm commitment to non-violence. Don't know if it's silly, or sweet, or great, or what, but it's another straw in the wind, isn't it? Read below the fold...

Don't "wait 'til he does something" on Social Security

Digby explains why:

Hamsher has an update about the "Fiscal Responsibility Summit" that indicates to me that the administration is working on the fly. I think that the stuff we heard about the plan being the result of a small group within the White House operating on the fly in changing circumstances is the most likely explanation for why this thing is such a train wreck. Apparently, the story is changing from minute to minute, even about who's speaking at this thing and who is attending. [Jane Hamsher writes:]

Not Even a Close Call

Thread: 

Regarding this:

Jon Keller is right:

"I don't think it's even a close call - this vile New York Post cartoon is racist and deplorable, as is the fact that the Post's alleged editors thought it was OK to print and are defending that decision instead of abjectly apologizing."

One good reason bipartisanship is teh suxx0r

David Broder helps us understand the stakes:

And think ahead to entitlement reform. Democrats will never tackle Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid -- and the taxes to finance them -- unless, as former Wyoming senator Al Simpson used to say, significant numbers of Republicans agree to "link arms and go over the cliff together."

Bankster of the day

Robert Kelly:

Feb. 19 (Bloomberg) -- Bank of New York Mellon Corp. Chief Executive Officer Robert Kelly said he opposes a limit on bankers’ bonuses because it could make senior executives quit.

Why isn't cleaning out the executives who fucked up exactly what we should be doing?

Sounds like we need to replace the categories "exempt" and "not exempt" with "entitled" (the executives) and "not entitled" (everybody else). Read below the fold...

The Village is far from done with you, Democrats.

Suddenly, the Village is concerned with corruption and ethics:

WASHINGTON — The Obama administration and the new Congress are quickly handing over to Republicans the same “culture of corruption” issue that Democrats used so effectively against the GOP before coming to power.

Freshman Sen. Roland Burris, D-Ill., is only the latest embarrassment.

Senate Democrats accepted Burris because they believed what he told them: He was clean. Burris now admits he tried to raise money for Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, who authorities say sought to sell President Barack Obama’s former Senate seat.

We'll huff, and puff, and, well...write you a sternly worded letter, of course.

So, back in November and December, the opposition in the Canadian House of Commons was all in a huff (as they should have been) by the Conserative-lead government's fiscal plan that included a plethora of non-progressive/regressive-minded cuts and tools such as suspending federal workers' right to strike.
