And here I thought Politico had picked up on the Trans Am Project. False advertising, subby.

Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: syberpud: Scorpitron is reduced to a thin red paste: I see Politico as a latter day Newsweek or Time - completely middle brow stuff with little depth slanted to right-center old people. Except because it's this day and age those 'right-center old people' tend to be Tea Party types. You can see it usually in their comments sections.

Politico is the "Inside Baseball" for campaign workers, policy wonks, and various other DC types. Tea party types (surprising number around NoVA/MD) actually hate Politico since it really only lives to cover "big gubbmint". They troll the comments apparently.

If it's slanted toward policy wonks and those in the know, it does a terrible job; it's often horribly misinformed and just generally addle-pated in its coverage. It does trend right, which is why it's amusing the Tea Party crowd detests it so much.


Admittedly "policy wonks" is a stretch - more for those that view politics as sport: professional campaigners, etc. Like all trade rags, it's rarely completely correct. It doesn't trend right (or left), but trends towards those in power at the moment - they live for access and if they piss off people in power they are out of business, so they tend to portray those currently in favor/power better than those falling out of favor.

topcon: FinFangFark: A couple of our very own Farkers started this. It was a simple thread on Friday afternoon that took a life of it's own. Thanks to all the mods for bumping the threads all weekend, and for being helpful in the process.

The goal is to kick it up a notch today now that everyone is back in the office, pretending to work.

/GIVE JOE THE BIRD!

What is the point of this stupid shiat, exactly? Gen-Y hipsters and their unfunny projects. After all the time that's being spent on this inane thing, none of you involved in can ever criticize any kind of lamebrained fundraising event, ever.


Yeah, but you're a racist, so nobody cares what you think.

Where it began

Uhm, it's not about your stance on either side of the aisle...it's just about taking the Uncle Joe meme that The Onion started, and taking it to a new level. Oh and several charities will benefit in the process.
