This week is a quickie, just a few links to share. If you haven't read these posts, you are in for a treat. File this under the TGIF-edition.
I'll start off with Scott Lemieux's Fetuses are Right's Bearing Subjects. This is a must read for all.
I'm sure you've noticed the push for the TV show Commander-in-Chief. I don't watch much TV, other than news, history channel, food, channel, biography channel and BBCAmerica. Sheelzebub puts into concise words how the hype is devoid of reality.
Here are Ms. Julien's take on the Religon in democracy study recently published. Is it any wonder that the Enlightenment is under attack and such books as the Left Behind series is such a big seller? (More on the Left Behind series soon -- I've dipped my foot into the edges of hell and started reading the series. All I'll leave you with today is Oh. My. Fucking. God.)
Speaking of religion, Amanda takes on DI and the watered-down creationists.
Maha works on the Culture of Corruption that is finally unraveling this administration. This would make a great series -- I just don't have the time to write it.
