- Today's comic by Tom Tomorrow is The year in review, part two:
- What you missed on Sunday Kos …
- Book review: The Betrayal of the American Dream, by Laura Clawson
- 2012 In Review: Grading the Pollsters, by Steve Singiser
- The least bad option: Going over the cliff, by Armando
- The fear of young black men, by Denise Oliver Velez
- The problem with Hagel, by Scott Wooledge
- The national debt? Republicans built that, by Jon Perr
- Hair tearing time for the right-wingnuttia:
Americans again this year name Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama as the Most Admired Woman and Most Admired Man living in any part of the world.
- File this under ewwwww:
It reads like a hoax, but I did some Googling, and prisons apparently have been using “anal” scanning chairs for a while now.
Reportedly the British embassy in Kabul, Afghanistan is now using the creepy chairs as well.
(How long before we have to sit down for an anal exam at the nation’s airports too?)
Oh, the chairs do vaginal exams too. (No word on whether they offer you a cigarette after.)
- Watch your step:
Just about everyone in Washington is worried about stepping off the “fiscal cliff” on Tuesday. What they should really worry about, though, is stepping off the curb: New Year’s Day is the deadliest time to be a pedestrian.
- Drink fast:
Many Russians consider beer a soft drink – a light refresher that can be guzzled on the way to work or sucked down in great quantities before a picnic and a swim in the river.
Hard drinkers sniff at its weakness, as the saying goes: "Beer without vodka is like throwing money to the wind."
But a hung-over nation will wake up to a new and troubling reality on New Year's Day when beer in Russia becomes classified as an alcoholic drink for the very first time.
- On today's Kagro in the Morning show, it's Fiscal Thingy-mania! Greg Dworkin joined us for a laugh/cry at blaming "both sides" for winning the election and expecting that to make a difference. So just what would the mechanics of a last minute deal be, that any single Senator could blow it u?. Hmm. Anyone know where Jim DeMint is? Plus, our UK friend, Gideon on everything from the NRA's nuttiness on violent video games, to Mitt Romney's self-depricating humor at the Al Smith dinner, to the lack of progressive policy representation on the Tee-Vee machine./
