That model won't train.

What Alex Pareene still has not figured out about 2008

Forgive me for linking to this ridiculous Alex Pareene article about a possible Hillary run in 2016; but something needs to be said.

Obama didn't win in 2008 because of his oh-so-brilliant campaign. He won because he lied. Obama is the biggest con since Enron. Read below the fold...

Death by Media: Radioactive Days

I woke up Sunday AM and by habit, tuned in to CBS news radio. The dulcet tones of news guy Harley Carnes related how radioactive bluefish tuna swam all the way from Japan to our west coast. And then he told us not to worry; the fish were perfectly OK to eat since the added radioactivity was only 2% of what occurs naturally.

You first, Harley.

I tried to find a verifying transcript, but all I could locate was this thread comment on an obscure site:

but harley carnes on kcbs said it was ok to eat, according to the "official"

so, num,num

sushi anyone

Leaky Koch Disease


So an insider has unceremoniously dumped a number of internal documents from the Heartland Institute, a Koch front group. And it's a doozy. People are making a fuss over the "controversy" based climate denialism, but that's so obvious, it's not what intrigued me. Read below the fold...

Burying the lede in an unmarked grave

Maybe it's just me, but something seems hinky at Well, not just them; I haven't caught a single mention of Sean Hoare's conveniently timed death in the American media.

Anyway, a picture is worth a thousand words:

Re-he-heally? Okay, how about today?

American Psycho

What kind of drooling sadist would make an ad like this and then turn around and stick us with an insurance company bailout once he took office?

I guess it's the same kind who made up a debt crisis and is using it to gut what's left of the New Deal, and just to rub it in, told us it's time to eat our peas. Read below the fold...

A Feeling of Despair

[Welcome Confluence readers! -- Lambert]

Sorry folks, there is no activism today. I'm still processing my feelings about the shocking developments of last Sunday evening.

What I've ultimately settled upon, after my initial excitement has faded, is a feeling of despair. Read below the fold...
