The source of the USA Today’s preposterous advice? A book titled “Math for Grownups.” I kid you not. According to USA Today : That raise actually might not be as good as it looks. The extra money is nice, but it could very well bump you into the next tax bracket, possibly leaving you with less money than you had before the raise.

Thank you for your heart, your backbone and your good sense. You may wonder why a Floridian is so interested in the Governor of Alaska. It’s because I hope that you are our next Vice-president. Talk about change that we can believe in! So began an email from Stan Raley of Florida, sent on August 27, 2008, at 6:36 p.m. In just a few hours, Raley’s wish would be granted, and Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska would be the running mate of Senator John McCain.

Watch as Robert Gibbs goes into the belly of the beast to deliver the news that health care reform is going to become the law of the land — and it will become law of the land within the next week: The subtext of Gibbs’ statement couldn’t be more clear. Not only did he basically declare victory on the question of whether health care reform would pass, but he did so on Fox News, the biggest media cheerleader against reform.
Arianna Huffington: Newsmakers Roasting on an Open Fire: Your Gift Ideas for 2009’s Naughty and Nice

Earlier this week, I asked for your ideas on what gifts we should give to some of our favorite — and not so favorite — public figures. You dusted off your Santa suits and squeezed down the virtual chimney, loaded with gift ideas. Now it’s time to unwrap the presents. Here are our favorite gifts to stuff into the stockings of some of 2009’s most memorable characters: Chris Matthews: a microphone that cuts off after he asks a question. (submitted by MrJoyboy) Barack Obama: a GPS, to show him the way from Wall Street to Main Street.

Last January, as I understand it, the White House promised Big Pharma, big insurance, and the American Medical Association the moral equivalent of what Joel Halderman allegedly demanded of David Letterman: hush money. The groups agreed to stay silent or even be supportive of healthcare reform, as long as they were paid off. But now that it’s time to collect, the bill is larger than the White House expected, and it’s going to fall like an avalanche on middle class Americans in coming years. That could mean an ugly 2012 election (read Sarah Palin).

When people allow themselves to be overwhelmed by fear things usually get crazy. Sadly, such is the case concerning Health Care reform. During a series of town hall meetings around the country last week, members of Congress have been jeered, shouted-down, and threatened with death. Many of the protesters have been ginned up by pundits and political organizations: Sean Hannity: “Become part of the mob!” read a banner on his Web site.

The news today that Pennsylvania Senator Arelen Specter [R] has announced that he’s switching parties should be a wake-up call for a Republican Party that has moved so far to the right that it is in danger of alienating the increasing majority of moderate Americans, especially those in the northeast where the Republican Party appears to be slipping into obsolescence. The GOP has long prided itself on tarring the Democrats with “being out of touch with mainstream American values.” Today, that tag seems more applicable to them than it does to the Democratic Party.

The disadvantages of being a writer, who is often written about, are numerous. I begin with an enthusiastic call to my 81-year old mother, hoping to share my enthusiasm from an assignment abroad. “Hey ma…” “I know,” she says, “You’re on Jupiter, it’s all over the Internet. They say you’re cavorting with the planet’s president! They say he’s anti-earth! And Sean, why is your hair so big in the pictures?” I muse, “Lack of gravity?” “That’s what Hannity said!!” she tells me.
