Do you ever get the feeling that news stories are extensions of high school spats? First Sarah Palin’s family was brawling at a party, now a boyfriend-gone-bitter sparked an online flamewar unlike any other. The Gamergate story would be very silly if it didn’t involve threats of violence against women, bomb threats, mass shooting threats and egregious invasions of privacy.
In case you haven’t noticed, the video game business is now gigantic, bigger than traditional Hollywood movies.
The news media reminders arrive almost daily now: President Obama's approval rating is low and going lower. McClatchy Newspapers highlighted the "dropping approval ratings," while the Washington Post declared "President Obama's approval ratings have plunged to record lows." The Christian Science Monitor noted the numbers have "plummeted." The Washington Examiner stressed the president's approvals were "sinking to historic lows," while an Atlantic headlined announced, ""Obama's Sinking Approval Could Drag Democrats Down With Him."
The portrait being painted by an array of media artists is unmistakable: Obama's approval ratings are not only weak but they're going down, down, down.
But it's not true.
The part about Obama's "dropping" and "sinking" polling numbers simply isn't accurate, not matter how many times it's repeated inside the Beltway echo chamber.
Does the White House wish Obama's job approval rating was higher?
You don't know what to wear for Halloween yet? Neither do I! (Oh god, it just came to me! I'm not telling.) But if you, on this Halloween morning, still haven't figured out what to wear, that's not necessarily a bad thing. It means you're a well-adjusted adult. Wasn't the whole point of becoming an adult that you didn't have to figure out stupid Halloween costumes anymore?
Just before the new year, "The Colbert Report" will air its final episode, and the world will lose one of its most valuable political satirists: Stephen Colbert. On Thursday night, Colbert announced the date for the final "Colbert Report": December 18, 2014. (And he made a push for folks to buy his book "America Again: Re-becoming the Greatness We Never Weren't.")"Stephen Colbert, the guy you've seen here every night for nine years will be gone," Colbert reminded the audience.
On Thursday's episode of "The Daily Show"--the last episode taped in Austin, Tx.--Jon Stewart addressed the few misinformed pundits who think Texas could flip from a red state to a blue one."Listen, Texas has been a conservative state since dinosaurs roamed it 6,000 years ago. At least, that date's according to the Texas state high school text books."If Texas is ripe to turn blue, how do people like Greg Abbott and Louie Gohmert have such significant leads?
Sen. Kay Hagan (D-NC) has seen her prospects for re-election take a slight, but potentially pivotal, dip.
For anyone with kids, that has done hard time in a Chuck E. Cheese or some similarly kid-themed restaurant burdened with a money-sinking arcade, the game "whack-a-mole" is probably quite familiar.
For Democrats, that has to feel like these last few days (and perhaps even weeks) on the polling front.
