A DAILY WRAP-UP OF SOME OF MY FAVORITE STORIES OF THE DAY
Between a Rock and Left-Wing Lunacy
JE Tabler writes today about a group of moderate Democrats (yes – you read that correctly) in Chicago who are fighting against the radical left-wing machine – and they have one hell of a fight ahead of them.
Hey Zirin! You wish you could throw like a girl!
Kudos to Jenn Q. Public for b*tch slapping the outrageous David Zirin, sports editor at The Nation. Zirin lashed out, in a recent column, at CBS and those behind the pro-life Tim Tebow ad that aired during the Super Bowl (including the popular Christian ministry Focus on the Family).
The Liberal Conception of Birtherism?
“Investigations for my new book, Wingnuts, revealed that the Birther conspiracy theory was first concocted by renegade members of” a hard core group of Hillary Clinton supporters, says Wingnuts author and regular Daily Beast writer John Avlon. Take a look at Calvin Freiburger’s post examining Avlon’s discovery of Democrat duplicity behind the Birther movement.
Sister Toldjah Tells Us About Murtha
Sister Toldjah has a good post up today about the passing of Rep. John Murtha (D-Penn). Check it out – and check out more of her blog while you’re there! Good stuff.
Another Google App Suicide on the Horizon?
Orkut, Google Video, Open Social, Friend Connect… If these apps don’t sound familiar, it’s because they were complete Googletastic flops. Nonetheless, Google is going toe-to-toe with yet another popular social media tool. This time, they have Twitterers (Tweeters?) in their sights. The Business Insider describes the changes coming to Gmail’s status update feature, which align it more with the functionality of Twitter updates. Good luck with that, Google.
Megan Fox Has Clubbed Thumbs???
Of all the post-Super Bowl chatter, this is by far the most shocking, stunning, heart-breaking, Earth-shattering… and so on, and so on, with the hyperbole. Yes – the woman every man wants (long enough for bragging rights) and every dim-witted woman wants to be is, in fact, NOT perfect. *GASP* This after-school special brought to you by I’M NOT OBSESSED.
