  1. this was warned about by john leboot almost a year ago i believe. kerry has been out of the usa so much he needs to get on larry’s never gonna happen apology list.

    i remember when the explosions were first discovered and in the news. the concern was nuclear trigger development. a fission reaction requires extreme compression accomplished with explosive shells. i think that is an accurate layperson description.

  2. Sample quote from latest Gabriel Sherman specularama:

    Last month, Fox gave Trump more airtime than any other candidate.

    Does anyone think that’s ANY different from what MSNBCNN did? The above is an example of an empty fact: it’s true, it sounds like it supports the meme that’s being pushed, but when examined closely it proves nothing.

    • I just saw Rick Santorum on CNN. He was asked about Donald Trump. Why don’t the other candidates just refuse to answer any questions about DT? I don’t know for a fact that this is the case for every candidate in every interview, but I feel safe in assuming that it it so.

  3. Re: Wemple: CNN bleeps a Donald Trump comment

    I had to laugh (out loud actually) when I came across this comment on Wemple’s article in the WaPo comments section.

    “Nobody wants him to be, you know, the President but this is a lot of fun to watch.”

    I’m almost embarrassed to admit there’s a part of me that agrees.

    • I don’t know. Maybe those marines were despondent, or mentally ill. Will we ever truly know what their motive was? I mean, it’s not like they put a crosshair on a map or something.
