News Roundup for 11/21/11

Schoen and Caddell

-Headline of the day-
"The 'Dump Obama' movement has begun; Guess who'd replace him?"

Conservative columnist Andrew Malcolm is just super-excited to learn that there's a movement out there to run Hillary Clinton for president, so she can kick out Obama. Here's a list of the names in that movement; pollsters Douglas Schoen and Patrick Caddell.

OK, so that's not really a "list" (it's not officially a list until you have to use a comma), but that's OK, because it's not really a movement either. Basically, it's two "Democratic" pollsters and an op-ed in the Wall Street Journal. And, of course, these pollsters are "Democratic" in much the same way that Joe Lieberman is. They tried this crap before and no one bit then. But this time for sure, because it's a "movement!"

Hillary says no way, but who cares? Andrew Malcolm is totally sure this "movement" is on the march. (Investor's Business Daily)

-The art of crowd control-
Lt. John Pike, the UC Davis cop who gratuitously pepper-sprayed peaceful protesters, has made his mark on internet culture. According to the report, Pike "is popping up in some of the world’s most famous paintings as part of an Internet meme intended to shame him for his actions."

And not just art, it's moving on to movie stills, historical photos, etc. Pike is now famous for being a prick.

Good for the internet. (Washington Post)

-Bonus HotD-
"The Top 0.1% Of The Nation Earn Half Of All Capital Gains."

And that's why Republicans love capital gains tax cuts. (Forbes)
