Hilzoy's spot-regarding the auto bailout, but her post would be worth gold merely for the last line.
Update: Reading Holzoy's comments, count me in among the many confused and frustrated people who don't understand why Reid just doesn't make the Republicans filibuster this bill and go up one by one and give speeches about why destroying several million jobs is awesome because, apparently, said blue-collar Americans don't deserve their paycheck.

Buy! Buy now!
Not to be excessively whiny or anything, but if you're interested in ordering any books or signed prints, today is the last day you can order with regular shipping prices and be guaranteed pre-Christmas delivery.
Basically, my "shipping office" is also known as me going to the post office the day after you place your order. So you can still order stuff today, tomorrow, all the way up to the 22nd, but you're totally at the whim of the U.S. Postal service.
Starting today, I'll make the occasional reminder that for a few extra bucks I can ship anything you want via Priority Mail, meaning it'll get there in 2-3 business days.

We'll have it all figured out by the time we reach The Frontier
Please enjoy, or failing that please shit yourself over, the military's latest new anti-missile toy, which is apparently that spinning death sphere device from The Last Starfighter.
I know. Totally worth the crumbling school systems, right?

Ever notice how right-wing Republican politicians love to explain how Republicans lost an election because the candidate wasn't as right-wing and conservative as them? I mean, they were elected themselves- logic dictates it's sort of impossible for them to not know that if they thought a Republican who had views like them would win, then maybe they could have done it? There's certainly no other explanation as to why a politician as wildly popular as Jim DeMint didn't spread the Jim DeMint style of Republicanism that embodies the majority of the electorate onto the national stage. What's that? Yes. Jim DeMint. He's a senator.
I really would like to stress the importance of buying some crap at this time. The "official" deadline for guaranteed pre-Christmas delivery is this Thursday. Since most stuff is shipped via standard mail, you might have some leeway, but Thursday is the last day I can say with 100% certainty you'll get an order on time. Please don't wait until the last minute to order your copy of the new book or a signed print. Just to be clear, the last minute is upon you.
Next Monday will be the final normal strip of the year. The week after that, you get the Christmas comic. The week after that, you get a static pattern. Or you would if this was a broadcasting station in 1987 and not a website. You'll still get the Christmas comic. Have I mentioned you should buy some crap, like, right now?

What could very possibly be a somewhat plausible inclination that you are completely fucking insane
David Horowitz- David "there is a secret conspiracy between PBS and Hamas to extend Affirmative Action and flag-burning through our nation's college campuses" Horowitz- thinks the Obama birth certificate whackjobs are nuts.
My favorite part, naturally, is Horowitz calling Alan Keyes "an unhinged demagogue on the political fringe." It's sort of like Gary Busey telling Anna Nicole Smith she's really let herself go.
