|News bloopers - arachnophobic Anchorwoman|
This is one circumstance where it would be defensibly nerdy to say, "I for one welcome our new arachnid overlords ..."
Maybe a "Life Imitates Simpsons" tag? And of course "KITTY!"
|Occupy Miami Broken Down by Police|
It's more than a slight recession; it's been an ongoing process by which opportunities have been drying up for very willing and able workers. The wealthiest Americans are doing better than ever (as they tend to), while normal Joes' wages and benefits have been dropping for decades to the point where people can't get by.
We've reached a point where a lot of people think it's fine that a person can't get by on a minimum wage. Think about that for a second. While I agree that a minimum wage probably can't be lavish, it certainly should be enough to pay for rent, utilities, groceries, and transportation. Those are the minimums just to function in our society, and if the minimum wage can't cover that, we've got problems.
The OWS protesters may not have answers to all our problems, but they don't have to; they are at least raising important questions about where we are and where we should be going.
|Russian Kid Makes Poor Choices|
Sweet holy fuck. If he ever gets ahold of a yellow cape, a utility belt, and some green underpants, he'll be unstoppable.
|Jodi Miller (newsbusted anchor) stand up routine|
That Irish Potato Famine bit pisses me off, and I know it shouldn't. But the problem was, Irish farmers didn't own their own land, and they would typically grow two crops: a cash crop to pay their rent, and potatoes to feed their family. So when the potatoes went bad, the choice was either to eat now and for sure be homeless in a month, or try to get by and hope you make it another year. And it didn't help that the English Parliament was forcibly preventing relief from reaching Ireland -- they were happy to see the Irish go, one way or the other, because Irish farmlands would be much more lucrative if turned to grazing land for cattle.

I like the cut of your jib, sir.
It's reinforcement of what they wanted to hear, which is comforting. Remember, a lot of conservatives thought that Stephen Colbert was for real, because he was saying the things they wanted to hear. Which is why a bunch of geniuses thought Colbert would be the perfect keynote speaker at the 2006 White House Correspondents' Dinner.
"He used... sarcasm. He knew all the tricks, dramatic irony, metaphor, bathos, puns, parody, litotes and... satire. He was vicious."
I get that she's trying to mimic the Jon Stewart model of delivery: report an actual piece of news, follow up with a joke that illustrates the irony or hypocrisy. Except in her case, it's report an actual piece of news, follow up with a wingnut talking point ... which is pretty much the Fox model of straight news. Take away the shoulder wiggle and she'd be Steve Doocy.

|I will show you why I like Ron Paul....|
The funny thing about libertarians is, they make the exact same mistake as dedicated Marxists do: they assume that, in the absence of overarching power, people will act both rationally and in the general direction of the common good. At least Marx was sensible enough to realize that it would take some time before man would be ready to abandon government and private property.

|Cicero and Titus Meet in the Garden|
A small point: Pullo was under orders to not plunder Cicero's estate, so he felt obligated to ask permission even before something as trivial as picking peaches. Titus Pullo was all right.
|Chris Matthews 2012 Republican Primary Rant: He Who Kills Must Die|
First thing we have to do is fix Congress. When Medicare was passed, there were 70 Democrats in the Senate; we have collectively allowed our ranks to thin to the point where we've typically held only a slim majority, if that. Even Obama's so-called filibuster-proof majority existed for no more than six months, and the crucial 60th vote was a guy who had campaigned against Obama. Those aren't the sorts of numbers that can pass truly progressive legislation.
We were one Democratic Senator away from a public option. We were maybe only five Democratic Senators away from single payer. It doesn't matter who your dream President is -- Bernie Sanders, Ralph Nader, Pinkie Pie -- if the numbers aren't there in Congress, things aren't going to get done.

Then perhaps a "preview" button that displays a preview'd comment in a new window or a DIV?
"Original Link" is now working. Thanks!
"Original link" isn't quite working right.
Oh god yes, seconding AH's request. Even if it serves no other purpose, it would make it easier to repair an improperly-submitted link.
1) There does not seem to be a link on one's Profile page for editing one's own user data (such as E-Mail address). I could be mistaken and am not seeing the link.
2) Please add a "Contact User" link on a user's Profile page so that, if that link is clicked, an E-Mail is sent to that user that simply says, "Bort [or whoever, use your imagination] would like to contact you via E-Mail. His E-Mail address is [use your imagination here too]." If you want to fancy it up, you could also include a text field for a comment.
|Rand Paul vs. The TSA|
Rand Paul, of all people. I wonder if this is related to the overall anti-union theme the Republicans have been pushing for the past couple years:
