The Daily Wrap

More

Today on the Dish, Andrew collapsed the Big Lie of the right, and Rush Limbaugh believed in the twinkie diet. Obama's Indonesian nanny was a tranny, and he used his trip to Asia to put Israel in its place, while Larison wondered what India on the UN Council would mean for Iran.

Sarah Palin still couldn't read the WSJ on grocery prices, and readers sounded off. Palin's Alaska heavily depended on federal funding, and we looked at the 2012 Tea leaves state by state. Romney's former sanity on healthcare has been destroyed by his ambition, Dylan Matthews doubted Hillary Clinton could have passed healthcare reform, and Frum proposed that eventually the GOP will realize it should have cut a deal on Obamacare. Douthat dissed the unprincipled moderates, Nils August Andresen charted the GOP's brain drain, and political scientists tracked Democrats' unpopularity.

Jack Shafer urged MSNBC to come out of the partisan closet, and Jason Mazzone pointed the way forward for Obama to end DADT, but Drum wasn't on board. Ryan Avent bet there'd be self-driving cars for his infant daughter to ride in 2026, and Americans overestimated the number of illegal immigrants in the U.S. FDR's innate leadership stemmed from his temperament, and readers insisted Mitch Daniels was pretty short. Johann Hari put Churchill's racism in perspective, and P.J. O'Rourke had sympathy but not empathy for politicians.

Andrew almost lost his lunch over this foreskin revelation, Serwer skewered The Walking Dead, and this writer was losing his words. This reader's father enjoyed his vaporizer over Christmas dinner, readers taught us all a lesson about illegal US plants, and many responded to the agnostic thread. This is how Michael Caine speaks, Yglesias award here, MHB here, FOTD here, VFYW here, and the VFYW contest #23 winner here.
