Website Tracks Changes to Fox News Site

While checking the design blogs I read regularly, I ran across a link to The Quick Brown which tracks manipulations changes to the Fox News site headlines over time. It's an interesting site to see how Fox changes things. Unfortunately they do not have an RSS feed.

Ann Coulter vs Sarah Palin: CPAC Wasn’t Big Enough For Both of Them

No wonder Palin didn’t show up for CPAC–Ann Coulter got all the laughs and adulation as a rightwing pin up girl. Note how Coulter is going arm-to-arm with Michelle Obama in a sleeveless dress.

Palin Changes Line of Succession, Pal Now in Line for Lt. Governorship

Carrying on a long tradition of helping her friends, Alaska’s Frost Lady has changed the line of state succession, paving the way for her high schoolmate Corrections Commissioner Joe Schmidt to be lieutenant governor should the current lieutenant governor, Sean Parnell, be unable to serve.

Talis Colberg, who resigned earlier this month, held that position when he was attorney general. Under state law, the governor must appoint a back-up from her cabinet to step into the lieutenant governorship–and should Palin be unable to serve, running the state as governor. How sweet that Palin feels Schmidt is qualified–he’s spent 20 years running prisons, you betcha he can run a state!

What if the Wingnuts Threw a Fit, and Nobody Cared?

One of the most interesting things about the latest Daily Kos/Research 2000 poll is that Nancy Pelosi’s net favorability rating continues to rise. Despite being the target of right wing rage and held up as the poster girl for profligate spending, subject to sexist Twitter attacks by GOP members of Congress and targeted by human bile machine Ann Coulter, hasn’t affected her popularity at all.
