Sidetrackedery, n.: the weird, interesting, and/or fun stuff I find via my ever-behindness in my LJ flist, from Twitter, emails, going back through friends' LJs, and elsewhere.

:: From IAVA, Vets impatient with GI Bill payment delays (from militarytimes.com)
:: Also from IAVA, Obama to present Medal of Honor to Monti family Thursday (from militarytimes.com)
:: From HuffPo, Lorelei Kelly: Screaming Joe Wilson: Newt Gingrich's Frankenstein *sigh* Nevermind that Frankenstein was the doctor, not the creature.
:: This and this on the arrests made in Iraq after a rocket attack launched on the U.S. Embassy which coincided with Vice President Joe Biden's visit to Baghdad. (from militarytimes.com and nytimes.com)
:: From IAVA, Duckworth tells VA directors in Asheville to expect more women, more funding GOOD. (from citizen-times.com)
:: Heehee. From DailyKosTV, President Obama calling Kanye West a jackass. Off the record means off the record, but damn, that was fun to hear.
:: Right. The fuck. ON. From HuffPo, Trey Ellis: Mr. President, More "Jackass" Outbursts, please! XD
:: Getting TVTropes'd by HuffPo, cont'd: "Tea Party" Leader Melts Down On CNN: Obama Is An "Indonesian Muslim Turned Welfare Thug" Um, whut?
:: From a HuffPo Link, NineTwelvePhotos's photostream on Flickr.
:: From HuffPo, Reese Schonfeld: CNN Has Lost Its Way. He wrote:
When I heard one of the protesters demanding that President Obama and his "kind" were leading us to Communism, I had little doubt what "kind" he was talking about. Giving an audience of millions to enraged extremists is too great a gift to qualify as "freedom of speech."
And I disagree. Part of the beauty of freedom of speech is that everybody gets to be heard. I mean, yeah, CNN gets to decide what's shown on their air, but why not let the nutters hang themselves with their own rope?
:: So sad. Henry Gibson Died: Dead at 73 :( (from HuffPo)
:: SO not the change I voted for. RJ Eskow: Top Five Reasons the Baucus Bill is Really, Really Bad (from HuffPo)
:: Mo' HuffPo: CNBC's Maria Bartiromo Pretends Her Medicare Flub Never Happened I have a hunch that Maria Bartiromo is getting paid under the table by anti-reform corporations. But it's just a hunch. :P
:: This awesomeness about family from [info]metaquotes.
:: OMFFSM Dorkiest advice request ever. Is [info]mil_wives and therefore locked.

:: This will make any sane person's blood boil. From [info]rpeate at [info]antitheism, NOM's Marriage Talking Points. Nope, it's still bigotry and discrimination.
:: From @jorajo, this super-cute kitty .gif! :D
:: From a comment thread in [info]atheist, shitty advice is shitty. (from salon.com)
:: And this excellent comment to said shitty advice from [info]chron_job. (Also, a lot of the other letters in response to the article are very good.)
:: An excellent bit on friending and LJ by [info]skreidle, found at [info]fragbert:

It occurs to me that you may just want to lay out some ground rules...about how this LJ is for you first, audience second; that there will be some days you don't post, and that's just life, please don't email/comment/txt about the lack o' dailypost; to keep the drama out; and that when you boil it down, listing someone as a "friend" on LJ only means two things: 1) 'I currently enjoy reading what you write', and 2) 'I'm allowing you to see my Friends-Only posts.' Anything beyond that is icing."

:: From @danielabrams, Voices Revealed: Kidnapper's Blog Flooded With Vengeful Comments. Because that's so constructive, yanno? *eyeroll* (from mediaite.com)

:: Have some Newt Gingrich being an ignorant jerkoff: from [info]repate at [info]antitheism, Obama administration 'anti-religious,' Gingrich says. Dude, liberal non est secular. There is a religious left.
:: From @roomerholmes, H.R. 3200 IN ITS ENTIRETY. And I'm determined to have read it all by the end of the month.
:: Heehee, right on. From [info]ksol1460 at [info]olberfanns, Barnacle Bill the Sailor. Mightily NSFW, this is the bawdy version. :) (from kristinhall.org)
:: And here's the clean version she posted at [info]olberfanns. :P
:: From [info]lady_sci_fi (I still think that's an awesome username) at [info]olberfanns, Aaron Sorkin returning to TV? Possible fictional show based on Countdown with Keith Olbermann? That would be frakkin' AWESOME.
:: From [info]rahmbamarama, Biden's Puppy Breeder: "Never, Never, Never Again". Lordy, people were dicks to her.
:: WORDY GOODNESS. A comment thread in [info]mil_wives led me to [info]stupid_free which led me to a post in [info]ohnotheydidnt and in a comment thread therein I found World Wide Words. :D
