You know that feeling when you see a really great article or funny video or picture of a kitten and you want to tell everyone about it, so you post it to Facebook immediately and then realize that you’ve been blocked from your friends’ newsfeeds for being too political, too brazen, or simply too noisy?
Maybe it’s just me.
Anyway, I am endeavoring to be more sensitive to my non-political social media acquaintances by simply rounding up all of those fabulous links once a week and sharing them with you, my intelligent and awesome readership.
(Also, you need to help me name this new weekly feature. Wednesday Round-up? Too boring. The current name? Non-existent and way too long, all at once. Help!)
Buckle up, friends! Here is MY favorite news of this week:
- Meghan McCain asserts that the Obamas deserve an “emoticon of privacy”. Oh how I wish I was kidding. I love me some Meggie Mac. Yet another notch against John McCain deserving anything other than our pity.
- A single mom in Oklahoma shot and killed an intruder. What can I say? Girlfriend is my hero.
- David Boaz talks about the appeal of healthy libertarianism. Not that this is unusual, but I really liked his piece.
- Finally, a Democratic candidate we can take seriously. Free ponies!
- Chris Christie replies awesomely to an Occupy Wall Street protester. (Also, he’s backing Romney. Interesting.)
- The Heritage Foundation wrote a blog praising Margaret Thatcher, and it is AWESOME. Read it!
- Rick Santorum won a great deal of my respect with his slightly self-deprecating and well-reasoned interview with Hannity the other night:
- 51% of Huntsman voters said they were satisfied with Obama as president. Eeeeesh.
- Green fuel is SO great. So great, in fact, that our up-to-our-eyeballs in debt country is paying $15/gallon for it. Yay!
Happy Wednesday, everybody! What do you think of my new feature? Like it? Hate it? Got a name for it?
