Did anyone else watch tonight's Simpsons episode?

It was an episode where Lisa befriended a girl named Isabel, and she found out that Isabel was a conservative, and then they both ran for 2nd grade rep. I'm not going to spoil the ending for those who didn't watch, but it was interesting. The Simpsons definitely seems to have gotten more political than it used to be, at least in my opinion.

From 2007: Guy swipes FOX reporter's mic during iPhone live shot

I have come to the conclusion that...

many prominent Republicans are genuinely crazy and extreme. At first, I was a little skeptical about this notion and thought that they are just paid liars who intentionally mislead people so that they'll vote for more tax cuts. But after hearing Limbaugh, Palin, and now Glenn Beck decry the idea of Chris Christie becoming the GOP nominee, I'm now starting to think maybe they really ARE as crazy and ill-informed as they sound. IMO, no real political swindler would ever advocate sitting out an election if someone becomes their party's nominee because that would just boost the odds of the other major party to win. Furthermore, when looking at Christie's agenda, he has essentially done what the GOP wants him to do in NJ, whether it's union-busting, blocking tax hikes, or opposing minimum wage increases. He works with Pres. O ONCE during an emergency, and all of a sudden, these people threaten to sit out 2016. Smh...

P.S. Here is Glenn Beck suggesting that conservatives sit out the election:

“I really will not vote for another person––never before in my life have I said this––I just voted in a stupid local election… for the love of peet, I vote! I will not vote for another Republican like Chris Christie or Mitt Romney. I will not vote. I will skip it. I will not cast my vote for that!”

Either Rick Perry is very chummy with Chuck Todd, or he doesn't know Chuck Todd's first name.

@RalstonReports
"Good morning, Todd, how are you?" -- Rick Perry greets @chucktodd just now.

@mtomasky
Rick Perry wears glasses all the time now? And I think he just called Chuck Todd "Todd."

@aterkel
Rick Perry also ended with, "Thank you, Todd!" to @chucktodd

@NoahCRothman
Pretty clear Rick Perry has no idea who Chuck Todd is.

Anyone else feel guilty after seeing the calories on food?

I don't have problems with my weight and I try to avoid seeing the number of calories, but every time I see the calories posted on the front of a snack or beverage, I always end up feeling annoyed and guilty about consuming some of my favorite foods. Back in the day, it used to be that the calories were only posted in the "Nutrition Facts" area on the back (or sides), but now that's not enough and they're posted in the front.

CNN Has Lowest Ratings Week in a Year

Link: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/11/05/cnn-ratings-lowest-zucker_n_4217855.html?ref=topbar

From the "not-the-kind-of-coverage-you-want" files:

The New York Times:

CNN provided heavy coverage last week of the troubled introduction of the website tied to the Affordable Care Act. The result was the lowest weekly ratings for CNN in more than a year.

The Hollywood Reporter:

The cable news network suffered its lowest Monday-Friday primetime average in over a year for the week of Oct. 28 to Nov. 1. Averaging just 385,000 viewers and 95,000 adults 25-54, both key measurements marked CNN's worst showings since the 20-year record lows last August when the network suffered particularly against coverage of the 2012 Summer Olympics in London.

TV Newser:

It was CNN's lowest ratings in primetime since August 6, 2012, before Jeff Zucker took over the network...although CNN topped MSNBC for the second quarter of this year, the network has struggled of late, finishing third in both primetime and total day for October.

New York:

If CNN can't win the ratings during a breaking crisis, it really is in trouble.
