Those kids at The Daily Caller are so cooooooool that they drink beer. Beer!
They just don't care. That is so cool.
Koran-Burning Preacher Terry Jones and Rush Limbaugh: Class of 69.
The recent 9th Circuit ruling denying torture victims their day in court
did not please Jane Mayer. Adam Serwer argues that the only possible way out of the executive power expansion
is congressional reaction. Should we give up on closing Guantanamo Bay
and ditch military commissions? It's a compelling argument, but there are still really, really good reason to close Guantanamo. How and why Republicans ended
the 9/11 campaigning truce. (In part because "the anniversary appeals to inchoate, patriotic anger that only Republicans promise they're going to act on..") Russell Simmons comes out
for Reshma Saujani! A National Infrastructure Bank is a good idea, but is it a
bad jobs program?
A really interesting look< at services at Feisal Abdul Rauf's mosque. (And just one part of a good series on how Muslims worship in America.) The story of
the Muslim prayer room in the Twin Towers.
The story of Terry Jones: "a modern media retelling of Faulkner's 'As I Lay Dying', in which a gang of Islamaphobes, cast in the role of Addie Bundren, bamboozle the media into carrying their coffin full of malevolence on a journey of pure debasement." An eye-opening chart:
"9/11 deaths vs. everything else we did, 2001-2010." Yeah, if you're running for governor, you probably shouldn't have the woman in your attack ad
be the ex-wife of someone your opponent put in jail.
