These are pretty good. +Dave Merrell +Michael Halenar I think you two would particularly enjoy this.
A tribute to all those beat writers capturing horrible, blurry images of some of the most mundane shit imaginable.

I feel strongly about this one.

In hindsight, I think the joke works a little better if it's Indy's downtown commercial district or something. But it did afford me the chance to make a really terrible flier for the Super Bowl, which I found very enjoyable.

The Daily Show needs a lot of wood to house all the nails they hit on the head.

Oliver condenses and displays the rhetorical strategies used in the feud wonderfully.

Another nice clip from the Daily Show about Santorum's conservative hypocrisy. But I think the Daily Show might be going a little board on tagging their web clips. This is the list of tags associated with this 6-minute clip:


birth control
controversies
health
insurance
men/women
laws
religion
Catholic
church and state
money
scandals
Obama administration
Barack Obama
First Amendment
Rick Santorum
appearances
Mitt Romney
primaries
partying
pranks
penises
Canada
vaginas
Republicans
candidates
campaigns
Indecision
Indecision 2012

This covers pretty much everything, I'd think. I'm surprised Gingrich isn't in there (as he is quoted in the video), but maybe there's a 28-tag limit.
Rick Santorum believes that all Americans should be free to live by Christian law.

I'm guessing the next step in the polarization of the national political scene will be conservative politicians will stop agreeing to talk to or appear on The Daily Show and the Colbert Report.

How much fun does this look like? All the fun.
Part gymnastics, part parkour, wall trampoline is a nascent sport with few participants, but its proponents have big plans for it.

Jayson Stark writes a nice piece on who deserves to make the Hall of Fame, and why.

For me, as much as I stick to the numbers when it comes to analysis, I judge HOF-worthiness based on this: "could you tell the story of his era without him?" If the answer is yes, he probably isn't worthy. On the other hand, if the answer is yes, then he should go in.
