"This is not a serious bill. Unattached to a budget measure, it will never survive the Senate or a presidential veto. It is designed simply to send a punitive message to a news organization that conservatives have long considered a liberal bastion."

life:

Muammar Abu Minyar al-Gaddafi wasn’t always the lopsided, loopy, lunatic leader that he is today. In fact, in 1969, when he led a bloodless coup and overthrew King Idris, the 27-year-old Gaddafi was downright handsome. Come along, then, and gaze at a young, fine-looking, buoyant Gaddafi.
When Gaddafi Was Cute

you know what? NO. excuse me if i don’t see your cutesy slideshow as amusing or funny or cute, life. excuse me if i am offended by the fact that you find that now— literally hours after the subject of your slideshow released bombs on MY family and MY friends in brega and ajdabiya—is an appropriate time to be publishing consumer-baiting, tabloid-like slideshows that trivialize the actions of that very same man by reducing him to some sort of supposed hunk. excuse me if i don’t appreciate your timing or your clever wit, life. excuse me if i don’t find a man responsible for the massacre of thousands of MY OWN PEOPLE in the past two weeks cute or handsome or fashionable. screw you. UNFOLLOWED.

Weekend Reading: Wikileaks

danpatterson:

I’m currently reading two great books about Wikileaks. I strongly believe that the importance of Wikileaks – and more specifically its function – will long outlive the surrounding…
