Robbed at the Oscars. [rdbrewer]

Sarah A. Hoyt: Speaking Truth to Power
"And the reason they feel forced to keep up the pretense of being downtrodden and hard done by while basking in all the privilege and material rewards of elites everywhere is that they are a theocracy and the faith they used to climb to power is Marxism...." [rdbrewer]


Student Mugged, Says He Deserved It Because Of His ‘Privilege’
No, not The Onion. [rdbrewer]
Astronomy: Spooky alignment of quasars across billions of light-years
Weird. "[T]he rotation axes of the quasars tend to be parallel to the large-scale structures [like galaxy filaments] in which they find themselves." So not only did inflation magnify small-scale density fluctuations, it also magnified differences in motion? [rdbrewer]

"The Scaffolding of Our Universe is Being Slowly Swallowed by Dark Energy"
"[R]eserachers at the University of Portsmouth and Rome believe they have found a better description, including energy transfer between dark energy and dark matter." Eh, I'll see it when I believe it. [rdbrewer]


Why Ferguson?
"The basic idea of that drama was, a black teenager got shot by a white man and this was an injustice." [rdbrewer]


Schumer: Despite Midterms, ‘Public Knows in Its Gut’ That Big Government is Best
Yes, incompetents who can't be fired run things great. (two thumbs up, knowing wink) [rdbrewer]


Krauthammer on Hagel: Obama Can Tolerate Incompetence and Laziness, But Not Criticism
More from AEI. [rdbrewer]
This Robot Hates Ebola
And now an update from Al Sharpton: THIS ROBOT HATES EBOLA?

Newt Gingrich: House Benghazi Report Has Been ‘Co-Opted By The CIA’
That figures, really. Mike Rogers is a government lifer who thinks everything government does is Totally Awesome. But there is also an element of CYA. [rdbrewer]


Mollie Hemingway: 20 Ways Media Completely Misread Congress’ Weak-Sauce Benghazi Report [rdbrewer]

World Science U
Short physics answers with Brian Greene. Just click on the question. [rdbrewer]
The Telegraph: 'Beam' of static electricity raises man's hair outside Google offices in London
Protip: If your hair stands up, it might mean you're about to be hit by electrical arcing. So, avoid that. [rdbrewer]


Sean Trende: Does Obama's Order Set a Precedent for GOP Presidents?
"Once a president uses executive authority to implement a major, controversial policy that has been under debate in Congress for almost a decade, especially after his party suffered a substantial midterm rebuke, there is no going back." [rdbrewer]


Check out these other mocktastic #WapoFactChecks [rdbrewer]


Kevin Williamson: A Small Man in a Big Office
"I do not think I would shake hands with Barack Obama." [rdbrewer]

Heather MacDonald, City Journal: The Microaggression Farce
"The latest campus fad, which sees racism everywhere, will create a new generation of permanent victims." Here's a better idea, kids: own your feelings. The victimhood fad encourages people to handoff control and responsibility to others. [rdbrewer]


Douglas Schoen and Pat Caddell: Obama Is Damaging Hillary’s Chances
"President Obama ’s high-risk immigration gamble may have severe consequences for Washington, the country and the Democratic Party, most of all Hillary Clinton." "Narcissistic fugue" should be a term. #LastTwoYears [rdbrewer]


Mollie Hemingway: Saturday Night Live Finally Makes Fun Of Obama, Media Get His Back
"A very weird thing happened on Saturday Night Live this weekend. The opening sketch — you may want to sit down — but the opening sketch poked mild fun at President Barack Obama’s executive overreach." And the Washington Post published a rebuttal. No, really. Here's the video. [rdbrewer]

TheLastRefuge: The Motives Behind The November Rogers/Ruppersberger “House Intelligence Panel” Report On Benghazi…
"This is not a House Intelligence 'Committee' report on Benghazi. This is only two committee members writing a report based on prior information.... The Rogers/Ruppersberger Report is specifically designed, by wording, to provide political cover to both parties – Republicans and Democrats within the Gang of Eight particularly included, and protected.... In short: Mike Rogers is trying to hide his willful blindness." [rdbrewer]


Report: Bill Cosby’s Fixer at NBC Comes Forward [rdbrewer]

Daily Mail: Meet Arthur the stray dog who followed an extreme sports team during a grueling 430-mile race through the Amazon rainforest and refused to leave their side until the finish
"Feeling sorry for him, he fed the dog a meatball and thought nothing of it, but as the team stood up to continue their race the animal started to follow them - and he didn't stop." Via @ComradeArthur. [rdbrewer]
