Day After Saturday Links (Now with tractors!)

Thanks, Duluth. You really did the state proud with this one.

Update on the neighbors: Police estimate the crowds in Madison yesterday were the largest yet, "85,000 to 100,000 people — along with 50 tractors and one donkey". (via Michael Moore)

I keep hearing a strange argument against unions since shit got real in Wisconsin, it goes something like "We needed unions in the past, but they are irrelevant today". It seems to assume that there's no way to rollback the gains labor has made, because there's no way someone would seriously suggest we get rid of things like child labor laws, right? Wrong.

Gee, I really can't figure out why health care costs in America are so absurdly high. I wonder if there is something we could do about it.

Looking back, if I had to do it over again, I probably would of supported Clinton in 2008. Not that she would have been any better on issues like this, just that I went with Obama because I though he would be.

The monster Glenn Beck panders to is starting to turn on him (this is also why despite all the hype, Mitt Romney will never get enough votes to be a viable presidential candidate).

Sorry to bring it up, because I'm just as sick of her as everyone else, but the next time someone starts whining about liberal identity politics, throw this in their face.

This is pretty incredible: CNN reports that the earthquake in Japan moved the island over by eight feet.

Rare moment of clarity from our Galtian overlords.

Finally, in case you missed it, Michele Bachmann is still very, very stupid.
