Link round-up for 23 September 2012

Enough politics.  Check out some bear cubs and fish art.

Feminists have magic dong-shrinking powers.

Here's the new Louisiana curriculum in action (found via Squatlo Rant).  Maybe they'll also teach this conservative history of the US.

Round up some guys and head for the pub.

Can you guess -- hideous or yummy?  (NSFW blog header)

Meet a 47-percenter (found via Kay's Thinking Cap).

Parents, be accepting of your daughter's sexual orientation.

Granny stymied by voter ID laws?  Get her a gun permit.

Murrmurs looks at God, money, and the Pledge.

Romney is outraged by the lies.

The Muhammad-movie flap is idiots all round, but its maker should be condemned for deceiving and endangering his actors.

Venture, if you dare, into the right wing's alternate reality.

A Kansas Republican says Obama supports anti-black racism.

The head of the Alabama Republican party is promoting a new form of birtherism (found via Parsley's Pics).  Read the TPM comments, they're funny.

Rosa Rubicondior compares the evidence for the existence of witchcraft with the evidence for the existence of Jesus.

Planned Parenthood has a handy voter guide.

As Governor of Massachusetts Romney vetoed a law requiring hospitals to give contraception to rape victims (this is a pro-Romney site).

Chick-fil-A caves.

Swing-state polls are looking good, and the "enthusiasm gap" is now in our favor.

Romney threw a tantrum before his Univision appearance and broke the station's rules by packing the audience with supporters.

This is what life was like when people took religion seriously.

Earlier I discussed the oddity that while Gallup and Rasmussen show the Presidential race tied, most other pollsters show large Obama leads -- but those other pollsters also show a surprisingly high level of Democratic party ID among voters.  Check out this analysis of subtle errors in Gallup's samples, and this review of the methodology of both Rasmussen and Gallup.  Historically, higher Democratic party ID is the norm (though please note this doesn't mean we always win).  Here's a critique of weighting by party ID, something only Rasmussen does.

The Republican convention yielded a negative bounce in Pennsylvania.

Before you marry a guy, make sure you know who he is.

Yes, Romney's Benghazi super-gaffe did hurt him with voters.  It won't help with Washington either.  Oh, and Jim Hoft is an idiot.

Read reactions to the 47% speech from Booman Tribune, Dissenting Justice, Michael Tomasky, Ezra Klein, and David Frum.

Jury nullification wins one in New Hampshire.

Ryan was soundly booed at the AARP convention for threatening to repeal Obamacare.

A British cabinet minister has a meltdown at the police.

Libyan protesters are attacking and destroying Islamist encampments in Benghazi.

The Syrian civil war descends into horrific brutality.

Neanderthal sex:  good for your immune system.  Especially if you're wearing feathers.

As the Arctic ice disappears, the race to exploit the region's resources is on.

Nice post.... say, could you serve some toast and eggs with the Links next time? And I love the Pic.... reminds me of a girlfriend in college.... only she had a Hoover instead of a broom.

"Arctic ice disappears . . . "

Spare a thought for the poor polar bears who have relied on polar ice cycles for tens of thousands of years.

SK: The world is weirder than we imagine -- kind of fascinating though.

LP: It reads like those essays assembled from individual lines from papers by high school students who weren't paying attention.

Okjimm: I guess even witches move with the times. Sorry about the toast and eggs, but they're vegetarian links anyway.

Blurber: Yes, it's very sad. Yet more victims of the destruction of the environment by global warming.

Maybe we can relocate them to Antarctica (then they'd be bi-polar bears).

RC: I guess you don't need a gun permit for a gun these days, you just need it to vote.
