  • Dylan plugs in!: Plot Functions Weekly centerfold Nate Silver is moving to Brooklyn, of all places. [FiveThirtyEight]
  • Obama has a new website, Financialstability.gov, which means Joe Biden will presumably be on the talk show circuit this week, hyping his new daguerreotype flipbook, financeeconomy.website. [The Caucus]
  • What we talk about when we talk about waterboarding: Andrew Sullivan calls out the Washington Post for being the Dick Cheney propaganda organ it really is. [Andrew Sullivan]
  • It appears there is much confusion within Obama’s new defense against the dark arts team over whether they are still allowed to publicly speak of the “global war on terror.” [Ben Smith]
  • New polls, which Nate Silver will now be analyzing from a really chill independent socialist coffee shop, show that for whatever reason, people are feeling better about the economy. [CNN Political Ticker]

Now he can eat real pizza.

If he is living in Brooklyn and trying to log in from a commie independent coffee shop then he’ll have to pay $6 per day to do so (at least, if you also want a bathroom).

It’s only the corporate drone coffee shops that offer free internet.

Obama’s new defense against the dark arts team

So, is Hillary supposed to be Remus Lupin or Gilderoy Lockhart?

Tommy Says Soooo, Jugdish! March 31, 2009 at 3:35 pm

Your boyfriend Nate is probably going to move into Jonathan Safran Foer’s minimansion basement and be his beeyotch. Though he will easily be the best writer in that place.

I haven’t been to the Five Thirty Eight since Barry dunked on John Mccain’s dumbass last November.
Is all Nate’s permutations-porn from Dec-Mar archived?

The Global War on Terror is the McMansion of neocon foreign policy — anyone who loved it during its heyday deserves a small, cramped box today.

That’s a nice segue by Sully from 4 am at the Mineshaft to waterboarding…

Khmer Rouge torturer found Jebus after the torturing; American torturer found Jebus before the torturing. THERZ A DIFFRINZ!!1!!1

[re=277734]magic titty[/re]: Yeah, there are archives and Nate’s got some good shit in there, but the comments section sucks ass.

jagorev March 31, 2009 at 4:11 pm

OMG OMG OMG NATE IS NOW LIVING THE SAME BOROUGH AS ME.

I think I just came.

bitchincamaro March 31, 2009 at 4:15 pm

[re=277708]sppeterson[/re]: Please. Even the rats in Williamsburg have teh wi-fi.

Uncle Glenny March 31, 2009 at 4:45 pm

[re=277767]bitchincamaro[/re]: Yes, there’s a difference. Here in America one receives a decent cultural education and introduction to Jeebus, so one doesn’t need to discover after-the-fact that waterboarding is a Godly act.

Bruno March 31, 2009 at 5:12 pm

[re=277802]jagorev[/re]: Eh, even with suffering real estate prices, I don’t think Nate’s book advance will allow him luxury housing. He’ll be one of the people, ripe for stalking.

Lascauxcaveman March 31, 2009 at 5:25 pm

[re=277739]SayItWithWookies[/re]: As Nate Silver’s pretend editor, I’ll second that.

NebraskashireGentry March 31, 2009 at 6:44 pm

could someone please write a good satiric novel about a government that only conducts polls? leaders do nothing but enforce laws requiring the populace to stand in lines everyday and complete a confidential survey, expressing (in the form of answers to “yes” or “no” questions) their opinions about the effectiveness of the government?

the results of which the press dutifully reports, obviously.

I’d write it myself but the CNN/Wall Street Journal poll said 81% of Korean-American police officers with two children under the age of six don’t think I’ll finish it. so what’s the point of starting?

Mr Blifil March 31, 2009 at 8:47 pm

Yvette Clark is my Rep as well, which means Nate’s my new neighbor (except I have to go to DC for 3 months, sigh). Yes he’ll be posting from Gorilla Coffee, where you all WISH you were getting your morning cuppa, you flyover country losers.

Mr Blifil March 31, 2009 at 8:48 pm

[re=277708]sppeterson[/re]: Sadly, no. Unless you are referring to the $6 per day in coffee and babka cake. To that part I will testify.
