Net neutrality treats the Internet as a data pipeline, akin to a water pipeline. It doesn’t discriminate between the content that flows through it. That’s all net neutrality is. But there are Republican politicians who want to monetize the Internet … Continue reading
The Supreme Court. A reader at Andrew Sullivan’s blog makes the point concisely: A president Clinton will have […] a very gray Supreme Court (FOUR octogenarians in her first term). Think about what that means for all those Voting Rights Act cases … Continue reading

In an off-year election when the make-up of the electorate is maximally conservative (in terms of turn-out), Terry McAuliffe still won Virginia’s governorship last night. Think about that. He was a deeply, deeply flawed and unattractive candidate running in a … Continue reading
Responding to the discovery in the Republic of Georgia of a 1.8-million-year-old Homo erectus skull (possessing about one-third the volume of the average human skull), a wag from Seattle under the moniker of “1west,” commenting this morning in the thread … Continue reading
If you’re worried that the federal government will default on its debt Thursday, worry no further (if Brian Beutler, writing in Salon this morning, received good intelligence): Boehner communicated to Reid, a top aide told me, that he’d send the Senate … Continue reading

If you’re wondering where the Tea Party has gotten the bulk of its political energy, look South. According to a recent academic study, half of all Southern whites are Tea Party supporters. Half. And, as Michael Lind notes in a … Continue reading

The Republicans are certainly getting everybody’s attention, most especially individuals from the business and finance community. Here’s The New York Times today: One of the top executives who met with Mr. Obama, Lloyd C. Blankfein, the chairman of the Goldman Sachs bank … Continue reading
