• He may have had the best possible excuse, but it’s always fun to note when Herman Cain doesn’t do things he should do (or does things he just plain shouldn’t).  Cain, evidently, failed to pay Georgia income taxes in 2006.
  • I can’t speak to the exact nature of what was going on in Oakland, but it’s hard for me to believe that this much force was necessary to end the Occupy Oakland protests.
  • It’s a sad day when a Democratic candidate for any office endorses a terrible idea like this one.  Especially when he admittedly has doubts about it.
  • Could have called it.  I’m just glad to know that Rick Perry doesn’t give a rip.
  • Jon Stewart, the man who I am convinced is my real father, delivers a hysterical tirade against the GOP field.  I’ll give you a preview: he gets a little help from an old friend.

    Cain didn’t need an excuse. Unless things were different in 2006, a Georgia taxpayer that requests and is granted an extension on filing Federal taxes automatically is granted an extension on Georgia income tax filing. Your state bureaucracy at waste.

    That inter-generational rant you always wanted to write: http://www.emptyage.com/post/11591863916/generation-x-doesnt-want-to-hear-it

    Extra credit for mentioning the Economic Mobility Project (EMP). The really long lasting kind of EMP too. JMP

    And with that, I think it’s fair to say that the Oakland PD overreacted.
