[links] Link salad Sunday edition

An apology from me — I managed to offend a number of people yesterday. Judging from the comments, I'm not sure I haven't compounded the problem.

The secret history of the term "superdelegates" — Interesting reading about lexicography, framing and politics.

Babyfood — Some really cool tromp de l'oeil chalk drawing. (Thanks to sheelangig.)

McCain says Hamas pro-Obama — Mmm, Democrats certainly are terrorists, aren't they?

The close relationship between military analysts in the media, and the Pentagon — This is a long, fairly technical story from The New New York Times, but if you're interested in how the media narrative is gamed by the Bush administration, it's fascinating reading.
