The Gift Of Traffic: Some Awfully Good Nibbles From Around The Blogs


Thought I’d spotlight a few goodies from around the blogs:

— Stirling retells the house that Jack built.  And scares the bejeebers out of me.  And Steve Benen says prepare for guerilla warfare.  But Duncan puts the blame where it belongs:  clearly, all our problems are caused by a few poor people.

—  My, oh, my…I love Roy.

— Oh, look.  It’s a hypocrite in action. 

— Stoller tries to untangle Obama’s cabinet knots.  Singer does as well.

— Is it cookie time, yet?  Wolcott cleans up a particular crumb.

— This just in:  more pardons on the way from W.  Knock me over with a feather. 

— James Fallows muses about the security mindset — and how hard it is to change it.

— Josh highlights something from a reader that I’ve noticed in commercial lending, too — and not just with real estate.  Wow, that no strings, no oversight attached, be as greedy as you like taxpayer cash handover worked out well for us all, didn’t it?  *cough* 

— Pam showcases some family values. 

— Picture?  Worth a thousand words and then some. 

— Susie whets my appetite.  Skippy piles on.

— And then tbogg kills it.  With a mullet. 

— Shit you should not say, indeed.  "Insensitive clod" is right.

— The stupid…it burns.
