And keep your eye out for a review of the book that Susan from 29 will post at 2 PM ET Saturday in the Readers & Book Lovers group blog—check it out so you'll be up to speed when David's around to answer questions.
- What's coming up on Sunday Kos ...
- What's in it for me? Your Obamacare health insurance options, by Joan McCarter
- Five States You Will Care About A Lot In November of 2014, by Steve Singiser
- Yes she should...run for Lieutenant Governor of Nevada, by Denise Oliver Velez
- Time to go nuclear over Obamacare -- here's one thing the White House must do, by Ian Reifowitz
- We Must Go To War. Just Not In Syria, by Egberto Willies
- The global corporate power grab you hear nothing about because it's being decided in secret, by VL Baker
- Obamacare 202: The HHS & the Affordable Care Act, by DarkSyde
- Surprising absolutely no one with functioning brain cells:
... it certainly seems true that, in the words of Salon’s Alex Pareene, “Drudge has seriously stepped up his ‘scary black people’ coverage” since Obama’s election, is that something that can actually be quantified? In fact, yes: The handy Drudge Report Archives has taken a snapshot of the site’s home page every two minutes since 2001. We turned to the archives to count the frequency of race-related search terms in Drudge’s headlines before and after 2008. [...]
The results were striking: Drudge headlines featuring a variety of terms linked to race appeared more frequently after 2008, when Barack Obama’s presidential campaign kicked into full gear.
- For Karl Rove, vindication:
Everybody knows that our political views can sometimes get in the way of thinking clearly. But perhaps we don't realize how bad the problem actually is. According to a new psychology paper, our political passions can even undermine our very basic reasoning skills. More specifically, the study finds that people who are otherwise very good at math may totally flunk a problem that they would otherwise probably be able to solve, simply because giving the right answer goes against their political beliefs.
- A handy map of places John McCain has wanted to bomb.
- Not sure why, but:
Actor Alec Baldwin has agreed to host a weekly cable show on MSNBC that will air Friday nights beginning in October.
- This is very cool: Sixteen minutes of isolated vocal tracks, done when the Beatles were recording "Abbey Road" (their last album):
- Condolences ... to no one:
Hitler bodyguard Rochus Misch, last witness to Fuehrer's final hours, has died, colleague says.
- Always remember:
- On today's Kagro in the Morning show, Greg Dworkin's roundup buries a central neocon tenet, and once again illustrates the Gop's inability to win general elections with just its base. Armando foists Michael Tomasky's Daily Beast piece on Syria on us. He didn't mean for us to seriously dissect it, but we did anyway, and thus did Syria end up occupying the bulk of the show once again. Other subjects of interest: Armando's weekend sports show (12 noon ET on netrootsradio.com), McConnell's anti-Obama tactics boomerang, and the NRA joins the ACLU's anti-spying lawsuit.
