Things You Might Have Missed

Charles Davis is covering for Glenn Greenwald this week and wrote two really great posts. And I’m not just saying that because one of them relates to the campaign the criminal (in)justice committee is working on.

I don’t know how I didn’t know that the guy behind the IMF was a spy.

According to the NYT, communists are hot and anarchists are scary.

How low do you think voter turnout can go before people stop calling it apathy and start calling it awareness?

Really 911?

Maybe the cops can’t be bothered to show up for shootings because they are too busy keeping us safe from hemp pants and bongs. (Fashion police?)

First I get a letter from Gloria Steinem via Code Pink that asks me to write to Hilary Clinton and Susan Rice – two women who never met a war they didn’t like – to ask them to pretty please not bomb Iran. Then I read that Steinem has now joined the rescue industry and has been in India talking out her ass (here and here). News flash, Gloria. Having lady parts does not make you an expert on all things involving women. Nor does it make someone biologically anti-war.  Will she never go away?
