The Famous Ray's Pizza on 11th and 6th is the "real" one (though not the first one), responsible for all the hype. Anytime in the 70s or early 80s it had a line out the door. Known for its custom toppings under extra cheese. Still open, but the quality hasn't survived two rounds of ownership changes. » 9/19/11 6:08pm 9/19/11 6:08pm

The issue with Michigan and Florida in 2008 was that Obama and the Democratic National Committee wanted to disenfranchise Democratic voters in two key battleground states because of decisions at the legislative level they couldn't possibly have been aware of, or had any control over. In Florida's case, the Republican… » 9/13/11 10:44pm 9/13/11 10:44pm

Nah, coming from Facebook this is just a ploy for more data, disguised as a privacy upgrade. They don't need me to categorize my friends in order to weight my news feed toward the ones I'm interested in, their algorithm knew that three years ago based on my activity, until they decided they wanted to be all Twitter… » 9/13/11 10:15pm 9/13/11 10:15pm

Well there's also this, as Michael Gerson said on the PBS News Hour on Friday: Paul has a ceiling of support that is not much higher than his floor. His "extreme" and/or "reasonable" views are outside the Republican primary voters' mainstream. All the excited young activists are not going to turn him into a Republican… » 8/21/11 3:04pm 8/21/11 3:04pm

"This is part of an orchestrated campaign that has been going on for many months. It involves the Obama administration, the Center for American Progress, aligned left-wing groups, and their friends in the media. This is just the latest salvo in their attacks on the Koch brothers and Koch Industries. But it is an… » 2/25/11 5:47pm 2/25/11 5:47pm

@idiolect: medical research is not like opinion research, they're not measuring percentages, but rather observing a phenomenon like you would in a test tube. You do need to see it repeatedly, but there is a lower threshold. » 1/17/11 10:10am 1/17/11 10:10am

@shan164: Carter was right about many things but was politically ineffective. 1980 was a depressing choice; Carter was an unmitigated failure but Reagan was appalling. I supported Ted Kennedy for the nomination, then voted for John Anderson in November. If only Ford had beaten Carter in 1976, neither Carter nor Reagan… » 1/07/11 9:01pm 1/07/11 9:01pm

@Thunderclees: I don't think any swing voters (who "don't read" as you point out) have or will ever have the slightest clue who the White House chief of staff is. Unless they were from near Chicago, they wouldn't have been able to name or recognize Rahm. » 1/06/11 2:18pm 1/06/11 2:18pm

Hey, 4chan, Anonymous, whoever... I know you're reading this... here's a target for you. Koch Industries, sponsors of the Tea Party and smearers of legit journalists. Low-hanging fruit. Do some good and go after these guys, will you please? » 1/05/11 10:27pm 1/05/11 10:27pm
