Years from now — when the world is one smoldering rock and the only vestiges of our culture that have survived are Arby's roast "beef", that Kanye West I'mma let you finish… meme, and the United Empires of Google — everyone will use Google Wave to mark passages of time, like this…
…but for now, I still don't understand what the hell is going. Is a new "Wave," more like an email or an instant message? Can I kind of merge my Wave account with my Gmail account? And why would I ever even want to do that?

Sen. Jim DeMint on Rep. Joe Wilson and the "You lie!" heard 'round the world…
"When I heard this 'you lie' comment, the President turned and looked at me and I said ‘Oh no, they think it’s me,'" DeMint told the crowd. When he learned it was Wilson, DeMint said he immediately became concerned that his friend could face a firestorm of criticism that could threaten him politically.
But, DeMint said, "a couple days later, after he raised a few million dollars off of it, I was thinking 'why didn't I say that?'"
Then, maybe somebody would pay attention to me.
I'm so lonely. I'm dying inside.

Try as I might, I never quite understood the net neutrality debate. All I knew was nerds cared very deeply about it, so I assumed it had something to do with Cheeto taxes or Real Doll tariffs. But on last night's Daily Show, Jon Stewart broke it down into simple terms even a touched halfwit like me can understand.
The Daily Show airs Monday through Thursday at 11pm / 10c.

I have a feeling this is not what Michael Steele had in mind when he promised to re-brand the GOP has newer and hipper…
Don't you hate, though, how these funny vial clips often make unkind assertions about politicians and leave you wondering if they have any proof to back up their claims. Well, turns out, there's a post for that.

Looks like the Rep. Joe Wilson saga has officially jumped the plumber. Big Daddy YouLie! has, it seems, become the newest hero of the Republican Party…
Not many people get to sign their names to one of the [National Republican Congressional Committee]'s fundraising e-mails. Its chair, Pete Sessions, does — so does House Minority Leader John Boehner, and Rep. Tom Price, R-Ga., who's the leader of the House's conservative caucus. No one other than those three has done so since the end of June, at least not according to my inbox. But on Friday, Wilson did.
What's that? The guy who yelled nonsense at the President like a heroic junior high student signed his name to this fundraising email? Grab my checkbook and tell the kids to forget about college! It's Savin' America Time!
