And again

Avedon Carol always has a lot of great stuff, but here she gives us, in simple words, how Alito got confirmed. Brace yourself...Congressional Democrats were afraid of annoying Republican voters.

Okay, it's starting to be very clear that Yahoo is evil.

I guess the exploding costs of healthcare in this country mean nothing when it comes to treating of and education about diseases Republicans don't approve of.

A bit biased in favor of Noble Democratic Workers, but a lot of truth nevertheless. If today's crop of Republicans do believe, as so many of them say, that gov'mint is evil, then it makes a lot of sense that the reason so many of them are willing to sully their hands with it is to getrichquick. Which means their excessive level of corruption makes a lot of sense. (It's even less admirable to deal with evil for financial gain than to do it because you refuse to recognize the evil, but there's no explaining that to some people. Especially people on the Right who worship at the shrine of Mammon.)

I really do find Andrew Tobias entertaining.

"Especially people on the Right who worship at the shrine of Mammon."

Not much to be said in response to that, I suppose. An excellent example of what I pointed to on my own site the other day.

Andrew! Nice to see you!

Yours was an excellent post which I wish I'd seen in time for this week's frenzy of linking. :)

I shall try to be around a bit more in the future, if I can. And perhaps one of these days we can actually meet at one of those blogger bashes.

I have full intentions of being at the next one (assuming I'm in town, since my new job will require some travel) with bells on. Or, at least clean and neatly dressed.

(I'm a bit embarrassed to say I took your post, some time back, that you were largely giving up blogging seriously...I don't think I've checked your site in quite some time. But you're back on my regular reads list now.)
