Correlation & Causation

Apparently the American Bar Association has a liberal bias:

The bar association is, after all, a private trade association, not an arm of the government. It takes public and generally liberal positions on all sorts of divisive issues. And studies suggest that candidates nominated by Democratic presidents fare better in the group’s ratings than those nominated by Republicans.

I’m sure that couldn’t possibly be because Republican presidents are more likely to nominate ideological hacks, nooo.

Foggy Construction Photoblogging

Today kicks off Fog Week at Multi Medium!

Fog + Construction = Awesome!  Or at least Mildly Spooky.

Technically not actually fog, but I liked the steam in the background.

The shovel on the right looks kinda haunted. Or depressed.

How Low The Bar

Politico has a very generous definition of “accomplishment” and “victory,” at least where Republicans are concerned:

In reality, the Republican who has accomplished the most in the early stages of President Barack Obama’s administration is Rep. Eric Cantor, the buttoned-down minority whip who marshaled the House GOP’s unanimous opposition to the $787 billion Democratic stimulus package in February.

That victory enhanced Cantor’s already growing reputation, with admirers like Republican pollster Frank Luntz labeling the 45-year-old Virginian the party’s “go-to guy on everything.”

So… his attempt to block the stimulus package totally failed, but because his caucus was unanimous against it, it was really a victory.  Ooo-kay.

In that case, allow me to wish the GOP many more years of continued success.

Monday Media Blogging

LG breaks new ground in making TV more family-friendly:

The first feature would make me nuts, but I think I could have a lot of fun with the other two.  Too bad I don’t do drugs…

Eli’s Obsession With The Google Is My Bro

Okay, now this is really weird.  Eli’s Obsession With The Google makes a cameo appearance in this bizarre stream-of-consciousness thingy.

Did someone write it?  Was it computer-generated like my weird spam? And if so, to what purpose?

If it wasn’t for weird publicity, I wouldn’t get any publicity at all…
