The steampunk conversation at Babel Clash continues interesting
A Living Planet Between the Stars? — I am officially in love with the term "Steppenwolf planet".
Why patients need a say in their health care — My own experience has been a lot more progressive than this, but, yeah. (Via danjite.)
Inside the Secret Service
Is Huntsman Out To Get Romney? — I don't buy this theory (and neither does the author, I think), but this bit of GOP inside baseball gave me a giggle nonetheless.
It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp — Why the latest conservative hidden-video trick to embarrass liberals has fizzled. Conservatives victimized yet again as slippery liberals making it harder for the party of family values to conduct fraudulent entrapment.
NY Rep. Lee Resigns After Shirtless Photo Surfaces — Lee, who won his seat in 2008, cultivated a family-values voting record in the House, earning an 88 percent approval rating from the American Conservative Union for his 2010 votes. Gosh, what a shock. Any bets the FOX News crawl mislabeled him as a Democrat in disgrace?
House Republicans Heroically Propose to Cut the Budget by a Teeny Tiny Bit — Defense budget? What defense budget? Oh, and tax cuts don't count. Only things that benefit poor or brown people. (Via goulo.)
