Friday Clips

A little of everything

Good lord, I had no idea people had such strong emotions about the electoral college.

Here's what else is happening:

  • The Iowa rightosphere is consolidating at The Bean Walker and The Iowa Republican. Must-reads; gotta know what they're up to.

  • But the big must-read is Nate Silver:
    Obama crosses the 50 percent threshold at almost exactly 18 months from now, which would mean September 2010. At that point, a majority of voters say they will hold Obama accountable for the performance of economy.

    Perhaps not coincidentally, 18 months is also about the point at which a majority of voters expect the recession to have ended.

  • Sanjay Gupta takes himself out of Surgeon General; Dr. Dean still available.

  • Pluto is a planet again, at least in Illinois.

  • And you though I was bad with my Linux mania: this operating system holy war actually went to Fist City:
    "It's _____ ________ hippy freaks like you that are costing us our jobs. You got any idea how many people are getting pink slips because of your b_________? Every time you put that ____ on someone's computer, some guy trying to feed his family has to go home and tell his wife that he lost his job. How about I snatch that silly little ponytail and give you a tour of the parking lot?"
