Good one, today, about talking points and the innertubes.

2. I don't know who Ted Rail is, but it's obvious he's not an Obama supporter, but
how could anyone think that Michelle Bachmann would beat him?

14. I think he's suggesting that Bachmann would be one of the few who'd lose to him.
I happen to think that he's easily going to win a second term. I'm just not entirely convinced that will be such a great thing.

5. 262 comments on CommonDreams -- that might be a record
quite a revealing read, too, for those of us who spend most of our dialogue time within the confines of DU.

9. Heh!
I'm betting this one's 20 fathoms under. :)

Some people unrec based on topic, some based on linked writer, some based on perceived critical link to their favorite sports hero or political personage, some to DU on author. This post has it all.

10. That was a minor reason why a gave it a rec.
I've always liked Ted Rall and the article is spot on. Which means that the "kill it quick!" crew is out in force to protect the poor, powerless, helpless, albeit, mighty, unerring, and faultless subject of the article.

12. Ted rall can be on and off
There are times he can say great things, but he loves violence a bit too much for my liking, especially when he sees it as the only way for change. Fore reference, read his "anti american manifesto."
