Achetez le timbre antituberculeux — Not sure why, but I find this 1917 French poster to be striking. A nice site for vintage art.
Phony flier says Virginians vote on different days — Oh, look. Voting fraud. By Republicans. If you can’t win on your ideas, cheating sure helps.
McCain’s senior economic policy adviser on the McCain healthcare tax credit proposal — “What [younger, healthier workers] are getting from their employer is way better than what they could get with the credit.” There’s some brutal honesty. Speaking as an older worker with a history of cancer, McCain’s plan will screw me very, very hard. Would quite literally kill me if I had another bout. Me and millions of other Americans.
A wave for GOP staffers? — GOP staff jobs on the Hill and at K Street will be way down. My heart bleeds. After fourteen years of slash-and-burn politics, maybe a few of these guys can go live in the brave new world they helped create for electoral gain and party loyalty.
The Republican shipwreck — There’s something surreal about how fast the GOP has gone from arrogant triumphalism to its death throes. It’s a funny line, and an interesting opinion piece, but I think the writer is significantly overstating his case. (Nicked from jeffsoesbe.)
Why McCain is getting hosed in the press — Politico on media bias. I wonder where all this concern about bias was when Al Gore was getting hosed in the press while W got a free pass? Sure didn’t bother conservatives back then.
Blessed Are the Persecuted — Noted liberal rag The Wall Street Journal on the conservative cult of victimization.
Question of the day: Are Paul Prudhomme, Dom DeLuise and Luciano Pavarotti really the same person?
