You know what? Mug him again!

Liberal self-loather makes excuses for the guys who robbed him at gunpoint:
“Who am I to stand from my perch of privilege, surrounded by million-dollar homes and paying for a $60,000 education, to condemn these young men as ‘thugs?’” asks Friedfeld. “It’s precisely this kind of ‘otherization’ that fuels the problem.”
Note to Mr. and Mrs. Friedfeld: are you sure you want to waste this kind of jack on your precious snowflake?

For starters, go to Gateway Pundit and just keep scrolling.

The NYT tries its hand at indirect vigilantism (and in the post linked, don't miss Iowahawk's great Tweet).

Good point: where was the National Guard last night?

If a black cop ever shoots a white guy in my neighborhood, I guess it'll be ok if I steal some neckties from Neiman Marcus, right?

Excuse me, can you repeat that?

Senator Chuck Schumer – DEMOCRAT FROM NEW YORK (!!!) – now says that it was a mistake to pass ObamaCare.

Interesting. What game is this slippery liberal playing? Is he acknowledging that Democrats focused on the wrong issue? Has he run the calculus and found out that the program, as currently structured, is a loser for his party long term? Or is he developing a cunning plan to head off Republican efforts at outright repeal?

One thing’s for sure: such is Schumer’s love for the cameras, we’ll eventually hear more from the horse’s mouth (er, depending on your perspective).

The news doctor takes steps to protect patients from an attack of the vapors

The New York Times deep-sixed some of John Kerry’s comments on the recent terrorist attack on a Jerusalem synagogue, apparently finding them insufficiently nuanced for easy consumption by the paper’s progressive clientele.

Actually, I think we’d be satisfied with a car that just didn't smell like puke and cat p*ss

In an interview with George Stephanopoulos, President Obama opines that voters are looking for “that new car smell”.

Elsewhere, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel is becoming familiar with the smell of a bus undercarriage.
