Satudray Links for a Rainy Day

Damn, Rand Paul really sucks at this. At this point I don't think he can pick more unsympathetic causes to make the case for his political philosophy, but who knows? Maybe next he can take up those unjust child-labor laws. Speaking of, he bailed on his Sunday Meet the Press appearance.

Using Snopes to examine the amount and validity of rumors regarding Obama and Bush. The pattern is pretty much what you'd expect. It's interesting to think back to the accusations of "Bush Derangement Syndrome" during the previous administration. At least the Bush haters didn't have to make shit up to justify their dissatisfaction with him.

Crooks and Liars liveblogs the Texas School Board meetings. It's pretty painful. Poor Texas.

Your awesome of the day: Muggers make the mistake of attempting to rob someone outside of a Sydney dojo. The students come to the rescue - dressed in full ninja garb. "You should have seen their faces when they saw us in ninja gear coming towards them."

Via Buzzfeed, a new site, Openbook, allows you to search Facebook statuses by keyword. Much like Please Rob Me (now no longer in use), it's meant to draw attention to how public some Facebook user's information is. I know it's meant to be a criticism of Facebook's privacy policies (and hit users over the head with the idea that you should really tweak your privacy settings, you morons), but I can't help but be entertained by it.

"And then I went down there and beat the crap out of this guy."
