The letter writer's wife is right about the TV show (Seinfeld), but the funniest episode is the one where they go to Joe Mayo's party.
"That's right, a purse. I CARRY A PURSE!"
As awful as the Obamacare website is, it's still better conceived than Obamacare itself.
Do you got insurance?
Seriously? They assume that their audience speaks this way?
LOL. Do you have to stand on your head and rub your belly while you do this?
you know what else pisses me off about NRO? I stopped getting the g-file! I don't go to the website anymore for all the popup ads... but I'm pretty annoyed that I don't get the g-file anymore. I even re-signed up for it and still nothing. · 52 minutes ago
They've been having trouble with that for a while. As a temporary fix, Jonah puts out a phrase on Twitter every Friday around 4. If you e-mail him with that in the subject, he'll send it to you. · September 30, 2013 at 4:39pm

While I admire the impulse to fight against this trainwreck of a law, I haven't seen anyone answer these two questions:
What is the strategy?
"... none other than Ed Schultz, MSNBC's resident maniac."
I thought it was Lawrence O'Donnell.
It makes no sense to compare McDonalds to a fine restaurant, so you would not do so.
(For that matter, you probably wouldn't hear McCartney's music played at a fine restaurant, but there's a decent chance you would at McD's.)
A journalist should have the "ability" to us as many unnamed sources as he likes. Then it is up to us, the audience, to judge the credibility of the reporting and the news outlet.
Best comment thread ever!
All this with "no boots on the ground," mind you.
This is my last straw regarding Boehner. Dead to me now.
I'm betting Jane has texting and Facebook too, and if she is popular and a bully, she is probably bullying in those formats as well. In any case, take away the cellphone and the computer for a week (I'd prefer two) and see if that has an impact on behavior.
