Monkey Augmentation Suit — Sometimes Get Fuzzy makes me laugh so hard I damned near pee.

Zodiacal Light Vs. Milky WayAPOD does it again.

Jon Stewart on Glenn Beck — Wow. An amazing deconstruction of Beck's insanity. Worth your fifteen minutes to watch. Politics as performance art. (He's also making me realize how much Glenn Beck works like a televangelist.)

Why We Reform — Paul Krugman on HCR. Money shot. In every other advanced nation, insurance coverage is available to everyone regardless of medical history. Our system is unique in its cruelty. If you're conservative, if you're opposed to HCR, please explain to me why it is fine with you that other people sicken and die for your beliefs? That's profoundly un-American and inhumane. Just pray you're never in that position yourself.

Bart Stupak: I Don't Listen To Nuns — Another conservative forced pregnancy enthusiast happy to dish out to women, can't take it in his own life. Welcome, Mr. Stupak, to the daily life of reproductive health providers, who are subject to such harassment every day courtesy of your friends at Focus on the Family, National Right to Life, and the USCCB. Stupak may be a Democrat, but like most conservatives in public life he's just as morally bankrupt and inhumane as the bulk of the GOP caucus. Try a little empathy, Congressman. You might be amazed.

?otD: Why do they call it a cold if I'm hot most of the time?
