Am feeling a bit Orwellian today, so it’s a classic Devo “A Beautiful World.” What suits your mood today? Feel free to share a link in the comments…
— Teresa at MakingLight — who actually works for a real publishing house in real life — deconstructs the idiocy that is wingnut welfare publishing. And the newest scam in self-published wingnut-idiocy disguised as victimhood-for-not-so-much-profit. Excellent work.
— TBogg captures the Bush Administration in a children’s book nutshell. What The Peanut will not be getting for Christmas…
— Wolcott takes a ride on the War Wagon Of Electibility, and finds the service lacking.
— McJoan puts together the links on the latest Baghdad media offensive. As Jane said yesterday, how many times will Our Elite Media be folled by the blatant flim flammery?
— Why yes, this does piss me off all over again. Oh, and do take the time to read yesterday’s Froomkin if you haven’t already — it’s chock full of interesting nuggets.
— Oh, Rudy. How is it possible that one man could be so full of crap? See here (H/T to Taylor) and here (H/T to Avedon.).
— If you are a Republican in Iowa, might I suggest the lovely “None of the Above” for tomorrow’s straw poll as an expression of the craptastic nature of the other choices?
— The Center for Constitutional Rights is taking on the FISA bill and illegal domestic spying without a warrant. See here for some details, and ThinkProgress has even more. (H/T to twolf1 for the link to TP.)
So, what is catching your eye in the news or around blogtopia (H/T to skippy) today?
