Out of My Mind for 15 August 2009

Normally, I save the fun stuff for the end but this is too awesome; the world can wait a few minutes to go to Hell….

Professor Krugman agrees: even when the Times does good work, it’s often still somehow lacking, like this.

Another hypocritical GOP asshole: Chuck Grassley: Votes for “death panels” then, against them now. Reason for change: no better reason than to stop Obamacare. More here. Of course, it would help the debate if the Big Media bothered to make clear at all appropriate times that one of the big objections to the public option is that in a lot of states, health insurance is a political-contribution-purchased monopoly so f course the pols there are paid to vote against competition.

Speaking of which, how well does the UK healthcare system work? And it was created by a conservative “icon”!

To me, this is funny:

Boswell says the president told him “he’s willing to be a one-term president if that’s what it takes to get healthcare and energy reform.”

But will he be happy to be a one-termer because his services to Wall Street fail to really fix the economy? You know, like despite everything he does, instead of an L-shaped downturn we get a W-shaped one with the second valley coming around 2012? Four years of recession and near-recession and relative impoverishment usually isn’t a winning platform.

Coming this Sunday: Smackdown! Maddow vs. Gregory. The freaky looking white boy hasn’t a chance, unless he games the match….

Busted: Bob Dylan. For walking around a neighborhood looking for a house while wearing a hoodie. So maybe it’s not racism, maybe cops are, along with the rest of rightist society, just gtetting really stupid?

Awww! I love red pandas almost as much as “real” pandas….
