Garance Franke-Ruta RT @BuzzFeedBen: So is the damage Foster Friess did to Santorum today valued
Jesse Taylor Aleve would like to remind you that it's the doctor-recommended alternative to knee aspirin.

David Leonhardt @BetseyStevenson Fair enough. I was using the self-description the group prefers.
Betsey Stevenson @DLeonhardt oh so you needed irony quotes around "upper middle class"
David Leonhardt @BetseyStevenson The point of Nolan's essay, on Gawker, is that UMC claims to be mid class -- bc it doesn't have much after spending a lot.

Amanda Marcotte http://bit.ly/wXTOLk Is Issa working for the Democrats? Blocking women from testifying about women's health care is just too easy.
