Yesterday’s link dump post was a bit of a hit, so why not do it again? If you all like it, I’ll make a regular deal of it. As before, these are all items of interest that lived in my browser tabs today, but that I didn’t have time to build into grown-up, adult blog posts.
- Ed Morrissey finds a bunch of Federal employees who feel very comfortable using a now-familiar sexual slur in a campaign ad. It won’t surprise you to know that they’re fine with heaping mountains of debt onto our grandchildren so long as they’re fat and happy today.
- I don’t know why Valley of the Shadow has volunteered for the 60 Minutes beat, but the results are pretty darned good.
- If you want to know all about why the Black Panther voter intimidation case is is a big deal, Quin Hillyer has the best summary I’ve seen.
- Friday, I noted a poll that suggested that Democrat John Dingell, the only member of Congress enttiled to call John McCain a “young whippersnapper”, could be in trouble in November. Well, he just uncorked what may be the first attack ad he’s ever needed to run. Or, as Jim Geraghty puts it, “John Dingell Runs His First Attack Ad Since the War of 1812″.
- Why does cash-strapped New York City have to shell out $27 million to change all its street signs? Because some dopey bureaucrat in Washington doesn’t like the font (via memeorandum).
- Lance presents the year in interesting…and odd…quotes.
- Ed Driscoll has found the most competent campaign ever! Well, okay, the campaign found him. A whole state away.
- Eric Whitacre writes beautiful music and I”m glad to see that he’s teamed up with a record company that realizes it. And speaking of Whitacre, he’s looking for singers for the latest iteration of his Virtual Choir. If you sing, you should, as the funny Russian dish subscriber says, jump in it.
- The more trailers I see for this movie, the more I know I have to see it in the theater. If you know me, you’ll know how rare that is.
