Bell Curve The Law Talking Guy Raised by Republicans U.S. West
Well, he's kind of had it in for me ever since I accidentally ran over his dog. Actually, replace "accidentally" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" with "son."

Everyone's seen this, right? Well, in case you haven't:

It's quite long. Get some popcorn and a beer. It's worth it.

Hey Bell Curve,

Thanks for the post! I look forward to having enough time to watch it all the way through. In the mean time, can you suggest a few times in the video for particularly good bits to skip to?

The whole thing is good, but FiveThirtyEight lists some of the highlights here. I'll see if I can give some good time marks to look at.

I checked out the 538 notes. This is what Obama should be doing instead of touring the South Pacific. Yes the Pacific Rim is important but he needs to give the foreign tours a little bit of a rest for a few months.

If President Obama did this kind of aggressive countering of the Republican revisionism, it could be worth a Senate seat or two come November.

Well, this is all fun for the political junkies, but I don't think it matters much.

What matters is the Dems need to lead, not quaver. Follow through on policies and explain to the GOP that it's lead, follow, or get out of the way.

Scott Brown's victory really should not be credited to much more than the fact that he was so lucky, that the election happened to occur during the 5-10 day span when a brand new telegenic candidate becomes a media giant. Palin would be vice President of the presidnetial election had taken place in the 2 weeks following her debut to a fawning media. A week later she was toast. Were the Brown election 10 days later, he would have lost too.
