Katherine Kersten: Dense or Willfully Ignorant?
Ms. Kersten, I know you have an important column writing for the Star Tribune, so that’s why, when I read your October 22nd effort this morning, I was dumbstruck. I know, I know, religion can be a sticky thing. Believe me, my parents don’t think his jokes are funny, either. But what you’re is missing is this: Some people (with a sense of humor) think it IS funny. To be so...
Secretary Powell says his endorsement is not about race,” Limbaugh wrote...– Idiot, Rush Limbaugh, on Former Secretary of State and four-star general, Colin Powell’s endorsement of Barack Obama.
Holy fucking shit, Michele Bachmann is fucking CRAZY!! And she represents our state. Uffda!
I am convinced that if there were no Fox News, I might be two or three points...– From Matt Bai’s forthcoming, 10/19, piece in The New York Times Sunday Magazine
Fallon Still Has It →
It is nice to see that, though battered, Fallon can still produce nice work. This web-only (?) video shows what happens when a good idea is executed brilliantly. So many agencies want to do something “out-of-the-box” when it comes to on the street engagements because, the thinking goes, it will attract attention and eyeballs no matter what. Well, there needs to be a solid bridge...
Oh God! →
What a nut! Can we not let this man sit on the highest court in Minnesota? Minneapolis Michael officially endorses the honorable Paul Anderson.
The Source →
Here is where the story originated: On Harper’s Magazine’s website. Sure it was a blog posting, but that doesn’t mean it wasn’t fact checked. Do you think Harper’s would jeopardize their storied integrity and legacy by NOT checking facts and sources? I will give you a hint: the answer isn’t yes.
Clothes Don't Make The Man →
This stinks to high heaven and I will be monitoring it on behalf of you, Mom. Dismissing bloggers is akin to John McCain saying he is “aware of the internet.” It shows a fundamental lack of understanding about where the world is headed. Nahm, answer the fucking question!
The past 14 days have transformed this election. The financial crisis has...– Steve Lombardo - Pollster.com
Rick Sanchez Is An Idiot, But He Gets It →
Rick Sanchez and CNN have been doing an awesome job embracing twitter and other social media. It doesn’t excuse the fact that Rick’s tweets are very often unintelligible. CNN: Congrats on getting it, but get a better conduit.
My Morning Jacket at The Orpheum
I have been listening to My Morning Jacket since I read this. Growing up in SW Minnesota and going to college in Sioux Falls, I didn’t have the best access to live music (though I did see Dashboard Confessional at the Knights of Columbus hall my freshman year in 2001 before they blew up!). After I read the RS piece, I figured I better pay attention. I was blown away by Z and sought out live...
McCain Campaign Hearts the New York Times?
I can’t keep up with this. Does the McCain campaign loathe the nation’s paper of record or love it? Does Sarah Palin “read most of them (newspapers)?” Or just the Times?
