Don’t forget the Tourbillon Tuckerization poll.

A short history of modern finance — A complex topic approached with a fair amount of clarity. (Thanks to lt260.)

Worm Grunting: A Mystery Solved — I didn’t even know it was a mystery. Weird science and weird culture, mixed together. And who thought of this in the first place, anyway?

Report says Arctic temperatures at record highs — Apparently even the weather has joined the liberal conspiracy on climate change. Rush Limbaugh to Ice Station Zebra, stat! (Thanks to lt260.)

Palling around with terrorists — McCain and G. Gordon Liddy. Guess it’s just not the same kind of treason if your terrorist-of-choice is a conservative. More on the nearly absolute lack of coverage of this story from Your Liberal Media.

Reporter assaulted at Palin rally — Fire up the wingnut base, they get fired up. GOP: you own all of this.

Ignoring its own reporting, NY Times omitted key facts on ACORN voter registration allegations — Your Liberal Media, propping up the conservative narrative again even though the facts are biased against the GOP.

Palin discovers pro-America parts of the United States — “We believe that the best of America is in these small towns that we get to visit, and in these wonderful little pockets of what I call the real America, being here with all of you hard working very patriotic, um, very, um, pro-America areas of this great nation.” Which would make the rest of us…anti-America? I’m pretty sure her husband was a long-time member of one of the few anti-American political parties in this country.

An oldie but a goodie from a conservative stalwart — “It doesn’t say anywhere in the Constitution this idea of the separation of church and state.” (Sean Hannity) And here I thought conservatives were strict constructionists.
