Random thoughts inspired by the current memeorandum page:
1.) Anyone dumb enough to pay money to Charlie Sheen deserves what they get. End of story.
2.) I refuse to click the links and see what they say, but I am guessing the reactions to that scumbag minister burning a Quran (Christianity, the religion of peace!), leading to the deaths of multiple UN workers include a.) brief paeans to the 1st amendment, b.) clownish posts about how the murderers are really responsible, c.) sheepish remarks about draw mohammed day, d.) chest-thumping from the war party/”freedom isn’t free” jackasses. Personally, I’d like to ship all these draw Mohammed/Burn a Quran jackasses to the homes of the victims and explain how shit happens and they died defending the American 1st Amendment. That should go over well.
3.) Pinch Sulzberger is concern-trolling us about lawyers losing their jobs because the death penalty was ended in Illinois. I’m seriously reconsidering my stance on the NY Times paywall. I may not buy it when my free offer is over.
4.) The AIPAC crowd is very upset at Goldstone again. Conspicuously absent from all discussions are the fact that over a thousand Palestinians were killed. Shit happens. War is heck. Anyone who moves is a VC.
5.) The Times reports that Republicans are going to go after Medicaid. Of course they are. The poor don’t vote in the numbers the elderly do.
