I should be doing work, so no long write-up, but here are some interesting links I've run across this morning:

The Poor Man is in top form mocking people who don't know the Bible as well as they think they do.

Mark Schmitt makes the very interesting speculation that Bush polarizes the electorate on purpose, aiming for a 51% victory as a mandate for a maximally conservative agenda.

Brad DeLong looks into the historical origins of a line from "The Wire": "If you come at the king, you best not miss." I first encountered this idea from Cersei Lannister: "When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die."

Chris Bowers posts an article by Brad Carson on Carson's experiences running for Senate in Oklahoma.

A news item: The Dover, PA school board has become the first in the country to mandate the teaching of "intelligent design".

Hmmm, that last item (based on what you wrote, I didn't read it) is depressing.

In a variant of a couple comments you made: You can't kick someone in the nuts and say 'Oops!'
