11/22   Fox News viewers less informed than non-news viewers:
        \_ More details: Fox News viewers are less informed even after
           controlling for education, party affiliation, gender, and use
           of other news media!  Also, "non-news viewers" means people who
           consumed no news media at all in the past week -- no newspapers,
           no news websites, no political blogs, not even The Daily Show.

        Ahmadinejad for what he called his anti-Semitic attitudes and
        questioned his own actions during the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962
        during interviews with an American journalist he summoned to Havana to
        discuss fears of global nuclear war."

10/9    Will Glen Beck's head explode?
        \_ Oh, I'm sure he'll rant and rave.  What else is new?
           Of course, giving Obama the peace prize is dumb, but it's a step
           up from Al Gore.  At least a dozen steps up from Arafat.
           \_ Kissinger beats them all.
              \_ Kissinger stunk, but worse than Arafat?  I dunno. That's close.
                 Granted, Kissinger was well before my time.
                 \_ I think massive secret bombing of Cambodia is a lot
                    worst than anything Arafat may have done.
           \_ Arafat, Peres and Rabin shared the prize in 1994 for bringing
              an end a 50 year long war between Egypt and Israel and finally
              bringing lasting security to Israel. Two of the three were
              assassinated by extremists from their own country in the next
              decade. Arafat himself was the subject of an assisnation attempt
              decade. Arafat himself was the subject of an assassination attempt
              for his work. It was actually one of the clearest cases in history
              where the Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to people to really
              deserved it. The wing-nut brigade in the US hates the award,
              but they hate the idea of Peace period.
        \_ Which one do you want to go away if you had just one choice:
           Glenn Beck or Ann Coulter?
             \_ Michelle Malkin

              making a mistake."

        \_ GOP is Godwining itself. It is an amazing thing to watch.
           \_ What's actually hilarious is that you believe this is some new
              kind of phenomenon that has never happened before.
                \_ Like when?  Say in the last 60 years?
                \_ less hilarious: your patholigical need to put down

                   \_ pot. kettle. black.
              \_ Yes, it has happened overseas, but not really here, or has it?
                 The Democrats after 1968 kind of went nuts too, but not quite
                 this extremely.
                 \_ Comparing this to 1968 is a bit different.  That was the
                    party exploding from within combined with a serious change
                    to the political landscape.  What are the republicans
                    going to war against?  Do you seriously think this is
                    the same kind of situation?
                    \_ Yes, in some ways. The Democrats in 1968 had come off
                       36 years of dominating American politics and sort of
                       forgot that they had to worry about the opposition, so
                       they pulled themselves apart with intercine warfare.
                       The Republicans are in a similar state, having dominated
                       American politics for 26 (at least) years. They have
                       American politics for 26 (at least) years. They
                       are now where the Dems were after their disastrous
                       Chicago convention. We have yet to see the Republican
                       McGovern, but I am confident we will in 2012.
                       \_ But who will write "Fear And Loathing on the Campaign
                          Trail 2012?"
        \_ It is just a matter of time before a big successful party
           implodes. It happens to everything, and anything. I'll
           give the Dems 8-20 years before it implodes again. History
           will repeat itself.
           \_ This one seems exceptionally crazy.
           \_ This one seems exceptionally crazy.  We are talking the RNC
              here, not some splinter group foaming at the mouth.
              \_ The SDS had a huge impact on the Democratic Party and was
                 one of the primary actors that led to its splintering. The
                 current batch of Limbaugh/Coulter/Palin/Malkin is no more
                 (or less) foaming at the mouth than the New Left leadership
                 of the SDS was in the late 60's.

                 of the New Left was in the late 60's.
                 \_ SDS->Demoractic Party is nothing like
                    RNC->Republican Party.

12/3    When politicians lose elections, they often claim it's because the
        voters were stupid.  Here's an interesting new survey:
        - 35 % of McCain voters got 10 or more of 13 questions correct.
        - 18% of Obama voters got 10 or more of 13 questions correct.
        - McCain voters knew which party controls congress by a 63-27 margin.
        - Obama voters got the 'congressional control' question wrong by 43-41.
        - Those that got 'congressional control' correct voted 56-43 for
        - Those that got 'congressional control' wrong voted 65-35 for Obama.
        Audiences of Fox News got 'congressional control' correct 64-25
        Audiences of CNN got 'congressional control' correct 48-38
        Audiences of Network news got 'congressional control' correct 48-39
        Audiences of print media got 'congressional control' correct 52-37
        Audiences of MSNBC got 'congressional control' correct 55-35
        Audiences of talk radio got 'congressional control' correct 61-29
        \_ How many of those McCain voters still believe that one's
           sexual inclination is a matter of CHOICE despite scientific
           studies and consensus from the scientific community, and that
           gayness can be cured by God?
        \_ I'm not surprised. Average and mediam McCain voters are much much
           older and thus have more time to absorb information. Having that
           said, there is a big distinction between knowledge and
           intelligence. McCain voters may know more about congressional
           control but their stubborness and intelligence says something
           else completely about them.
        \_ This says more about the media than about the voters
        \_ I remember when a majority of Bush voters in 2004 thought that we
           had found WMD in Iraq.
        \_ It helps to have a link to the survey.
           \_ But if he linked to it, the biases would become way too obvious!
            \_ DingDingDingDing!
        \_ I agree with you, it is the Media's Fault that McCain lost. All
           you Republicans need to do is swing hard right, nominate Palin
           and do everthing you can to get your message out. The best way
           to do this is send hundreds of emails directly to reporters,
           correcting all the errors and biases in their reporting.

        "I think that’s significant, but even more significant is the role

                    \_ E_ROBERT_BORK?  Cool! -dans
                       \_ No.  Flaming frogs from the sky.
                          \_ Yes, E_ROBERT_BORK. -dans
                             \_ Sigh... no.  You're not getting it.  Go ahead
                                and post another bork and let's just be done
                                with it.
                                \_ Do you even know who Robert Bork is? -dans
                                   \_ Yes.  Do you?  Do you know anything about
                                      flaming frogs from the sky?
                 \_ We are talking about Bill Kristol here. He does not

                    \_ Again, you have helped educate us all with facts,
                       details, and hard core specifics.  Appreciated.
                    \_ I kind of liked him in "When Harry Met Sally". I
                       never realized he was so into politics.
                 \_ Sure a brutal critic can make valid points. From the
                    pages of another publication.

12/5    Fox News just pretends bombshell NIE report doesn't exist
        \_ ^reportA^estimate
        \_ ^report^estimate
         \_ Uhh, no, it's a report.  It might not be right (although
            frankly I trust it a lot more than some anonymous motder)
            but it is still a report.
            \_ NIE not NIR (NI estimate not NI report
             \_ Its a report.  Called the NIE.
            \_ And Evolution's just a Theory!
            \+_ War sells newspapers.
        \_ I gotta say, the NIE report should be pretty big news.
        \_ It was only July that at least one of the guys who signed off on
           this report said Iran was working hard and getting close to
           a working nuclear weapon.  What's the new info in such a short
           period of time?  And why do we believe this report and not the
           numerous previous reports that say otherwise?  Why do we believe
           any of these reports when the Iraq WMD reports were so wrong?
           And these are the same people who completely missed the fall of
           the Berlin Wall and Soviet Union.  I'll read about it in a few
           years looking back.  None of these guys know wth they're talking
           \_ When was the last time they _under_estimated someone's military
              potential/intentions? I think it's safe to take them as a very
              extreme viewpoint and assume the truth is less dangerous than
              they propose.
