Weekend link dump for February 19

Happy birthday, Justine Bateman!

Don’t be too smug about your eco-friendly lifestyle.

I’d like to be the fact checker for New Yorker cartoons.

Remember “voodoo math”? Mitt Romney makes that look like basic algebra.

Do you want fewer fries with that?

Amazon is getting into the TV show business, except it won’t be on TV.

What’s not to love about giant Pacific octopuses? Nothing, that’s what. And yes, “octopuses” is the correct pluralization.

Being like something you say you despise doesn’t seem like a good thing to be.

Maybe they need voter ID in those Republican caucuses.

How Chioptle is the Apple of fast food.

Weird Al Yankovic is exactly what the Super Bowl halftime needs.

You want to claim you’re standing on principle, you’d better actually act like it.

Yeah, I don’t think that if the “religious” objections to the birth control mandate were coming from non-Christian religions that they would have gotten such a warm embrace from the likes of Mitch McConnell.

“Getting vaccinated is to health care like taking the bus is to transportation.”

Apparently, what Republicans really want their next President to be is a rubber stamp.

It’s not often that I get to say I know someone who was prominently featured in a story on “60 Minutes”. Congrats to Keith Baggerly for the excellent work.

Are you sad now that War On Christmas season is over? Here’s a little War On Valentine’s Day to tide you over till next season.

Give girls problems to solve if you want to get them interested in science and math.

Wil Wheaton and The Bloggess, together again.

“You can either be on the right side of history or the wrong side of history. Your choice.”

The opposition to the Obama administration directive on contraception is being driven by the bishops, not by Catholics as a whole. Pop quiz: Name a denomination, sect, or religion that maintains a male-only clergy, yet unfailingly support women’s rights in the broader society. I’ll wait.

When you’re generating backlash is a good way to know that you’ve made it. Or at least that you’ve made an impression.

If this doesn’t boost the President’s approval ratings, I don’t know what would.

Welcome, Fox News to the vast left-wing media conspiracy! Wait, what?

The Chicken Nuggets Of The Apocalypse kerfuffle is yet another reminder that pretty much anything the right-wing media is frothing over will be less than and different than what they say it is.

“Next month the U.S. Supreme Court will hear argument about the obscene government overreach that is the individual mandate in President Obama’s health care law. Yet physical intrusion by government into the vagina of a pregnant woman is so urgently needed that the woman herself should be forced to pay for the privilege.”

Con men, indeed.

Because it was such a great idea when Alabama did it…

RIP, Gary Carter.
