Thursday Clip Show

Don't blame the byline for the headline... but couldn't my friends at the Register have come up with a better word to describe Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz than... "cheerleader"? Not because of the implied sexism, but because she can't possibly live up to the gold standard of yelling set by one of her recent predecessors.

What else I got here...

  • Says here that Joe Biden, fresh from his Iowa visit, will be with the President in the oval office awaiting the Supreme Court's health care ruling. Which clearly means the ruling will be a big deal.

  • They're actually polling on which candidate voters would trust more against an alien invasion. That's space aliens, the kind Steve King worries about. Obama wins two to one, but even Mitt would do a better job than Jack Nicholson:

    Priceless crosstab: "If angry aliens did attack Earth, 21% would call the Hulk in to deal with it, 12% would call Batman, and 8% would call Spider-Man." As a space alien himself, Superman must have been deemed ineligible.

  • And on the technology front: "Orbitz Worldwide Inc. has found that people who use Apple Inc.'s Mac computers spend as much as 30% more a night on hotels, so the online travel agency is starting to show them different, and sometimes costlier, travel options than Windows visitors see." Priceless comment: "Linux users get access to a special half-price deal -- but you have to make your own bed. They supply the hammer."
