Wednesday Night!

with 2 comments

* All about Facebook’s new privacy policy.

* Another headline that speaks for itself: “Flynt vs. Flynt: Larry sues nephews for producing ‘inferior’ porn with too much ‘boob element.'”

* Impeach Obama! Who knows why.

* Updates on tomorrow’s scheduled marriage equality vote from Blue Jersey and Pam’s House Blend. Sounds as though the Senate vote may be tabled rather than be allowed to fail. (UPDATE: The New York Times confirms this is what’s happening.)

* Glenn Beck has singlehandedly solved the health care crisis: just abolish Medicare. Why can’t the plan to win in Afghanistan be this simple?

* Bad Democrat Ben Nelson, at least, has “no serious objections” to the latest health care compromise.But progressive groups (and progressive House members) are pretty angry. Here’s more.

* Democrats are finally clueing into the fact that health care reform that doesn’t kick in until 2013 may cause them some political problems in 2010 and 2012. How fast could this Medicare buy-in be activated?

* I think every single political blog I read linked to Rachel Maddow’s interview with Coming Out Straight author Richard Cohen last night. Glenn Greenwald has the most detailed take, focusing on why Maddow is so much better than every other cable host.

* Bruce won’t play Christie’s inauguration; better call the B Street Band.

* Lots of interest today in the climate change denialism industry, with commentary from Al Gore, Kevin Drum, Chris Mooney, Jeff Masters, Think Progress, and George Monbiot, among others.

* Great clip from Jon Stewart on how Fox News calculatedly talks down to its viewers.

* Mysterious Light Spiral Appears Over Norway. Leave it to Bad Astronomy to ruin all the fun.

  1. I had assumed you were joking about the B Street Band. That’s incredible.

  2. I should have said “Hat tip to Hope D” on that one. She’s the source for all my B Street Band news.
