Today on the Dish, Andrew would govern as the right's "doormat." Readers pushed back against the idea of a third-party candidates, but no one was really excited about voting for the current slate. Election-relevant Reality Checks here and here.
Andrew also gave a heads-up about a livechat and blogging from England, compared Britain's economic future to the rest of Europe's, lamented the loss of Whitney Houston, got angry about JSOC's torture, and praised the Administration's decision to release some of its evidence about Awlaki. Greece lit on fire, Israeli might have worked with a terrorist group to assasinate Iranian scientists, and peacekeepers wouldn't have saved Syria. Marriage equality won in Washington, photos were worth a thousand Komens, the bishops attacked religious liberty on birth control, women in combat generated more debate, this viral video challenged our notions of child abuse, and the drug war may have killed Whitney. Prison phone bills were ridiculous, quality (or quantity?) attracted pageviews, the economy got crowd-sourced, it was cool to forget useless information learned for tests, and most smoke alarms didn't help that much. Animals domesticated themeselves, takeout became healthy, and cooking from 1904 (for "invalids") was totally weird. AAA here, VFYW here, MHB here, and FOTD here.
