    • America Defeats Germany Again
      There’s a good article in Der Spiegel on the German energy/industrial crisis which is worth your time. Basically industries which have high energy costs are being crushed. In particular this means chemical and automotive, both big in Germany, but extends far further. (Indeed, the chemical industry was essentially invented by Germany in the 19th century, and […]

  1. Today’s DKos Debacle

    In a diary about possible GOP frames against Obama in the general election, I get flamed for making a remark that I thought was constructive about how to deal with GOP attacks against Obama. The diarist suggested that the GOP would use the “plagiarism” charge against Obama not as a standalone attack, but as part of a larger attempt to make Obama seem “ordinary.”

    The diary, called “The Chink in Obama’s Armor,” is here: http://www.dailykos.com/story/2008/2/19/122439/941/1016/459695

    Apparently, although the diary is on the rec list, at least some Obama supporters think it is a troll diary whose only purpose is to repeat a slur against Obama. My comment suggested that it was a good idea to be prepared for the worst. But apparently that was just more repetition of the slur by a “dishonest” poster.

    My comment is here: http://www.dailykos.com/comments/2008/2/19/122439/941/312#c312

    I am now officially done with that place.

  2. Isisinny: Aw, you say you’re done with them but you’ll go back. It’s an addiction. I don’t know if I mentioned this before but DailyKos addiction is very easy to overcome. Simply get yourself banned. I recommend the following topic for a diary:
    Are Obamaphiles using Scientology recruitment strategies?
    Draw some correlation between the two (there’s *got* to be one) and then stand back and watch the amazing swarm descend upon you. It will be a sight to behold and in about 30 minutes, it will be over. Quicker than methadone.
    Oh, sure, you’ll be tempted to go back and see your friends but without the ability to post or recommend, it gets to be pretty pointless after a few weeks. In the meantime, you’ll be free to explore the rest of the blogosphere, which seems to be populated by a lot of very fine bloggers in the Reality Based Community.
