8WND trumpets yet another PRATT: Piltdown Man, ergo evolution is false. Even more stupid in the comments.
2There is a "sketchy bit of news" to the effect that the Attorney General of New York is joining a presidential committee. Clearly this is part of a plot by President Obama to neutralize his opposition.
11Pack your bags! There's another Rapture due on January 28th
8A columnist states that neither the military nor the free market ever fueled significant technological innovation. He then shatters a dozen irony meters by sending the column to its readership over the Internet, formerly known as ARPAnet.
7Waaaaahhhh! I don't want to show up at the White House because Glenn Beck tells me that Obama is leading America into fascism! Free speech!
16Democrat's cat killed, word "LIBERAL" written on its corpse. (Warning: graphic imagery included.)
15"No (sic) only is Ms. Hillary ruthless to the core and would do any bidding to put herself in the No. 2 seat, but so too would her equally felonious hubby, Bill. In this way, he could back door his way into the White House for a second run at the interns, among other “affairs of state.”". WorldNetDaily, please don't ever change.

-9The Nation is apparently willing to make an exception to its usual opposition to coal power in Margaret Thatcher's case, blasting her for deciding that coal was an inferior energy source. Even a stopped clock is right once a day, guys.
5Prof. Henry A. Giroux is upset that the media coverage of the Penn State football scandal does not mention Penn State's receipt of military research money, despite not actually managing to make a link between the two.
-4Michael Shermer serves up a double-dose of bullshit by plugging sock puppeteer and data fabricator John Lott as well as Steven Pinker's latest exercise in PIDOOMA statistics. (But I thought this was supposed to be Skeptic Blog!)
