Oy.

Has this been linked? Ramesh Ponurru and Rich Lowery have some advice for the GOP. It's long, but worth it. The short version is: hey, dummies, you're nothing if you can't win elections.

The White House started pushing a rather stupid talking point yesterday that Obamacare isn't responsible for people losing their insurance plans, rather it's insurance companies who are pushing people off their plans (to comply with Obamacare). This idea was getting resoundingly mocked last night on Twitter, even among lefty journos I know. The thing about lies is they have to be at least plausible. The only people buying this are people who know nothing about what Obamacare actually does; now that includes a lot of low-info voters (see MKH's final bit at the link there), but not a lot of people covering the law.

I don't think I've ever agreed with anything NY Times' David Carr has written before, but this piece slaughtering Gawker is excellent. Gawker, Jezebel, Perez Hilton -- I can't stand any of those gossip sites and I wish people (okay, we're talking about women and gays, mostly) would stop keeping them in business. Ugh.
