  1. Well, I pulled an all niter for this post. Tell me it was worth it!

      Weird. It doesn’t really seem to be affecting us yet. It’s in the 40s here, maybe a little below normal, but not cold. But Texas in the 30s? I see it’s 43 in NOLA right now, and it’s 48 here!

      • NW Luna says:

        You’re warmer there than here in Seattle. Right now it’s 37 degrees F, bright & sunny, supposed to get to a high of 44. Forecast for the rest of the week looks much the same. Very unusual for us! I like the sun, but am not used to this cold.

        • bostonboomer says:

          It’s warmed up to 52 here now. I looked up the normal temps for Boston in November, and that is in the normal range. However, we are supposedly going to get some snow early tomorrow morning, and the temps over the weekend will be a little below normal.

        • bostonboomer says:

          Here’s an interesting article from the local Boston CBS station. The weather for the coming weekend seems to be following the pattern this meteorologist predicts. It’s a little colder than normal, but not so much that it affect me much. He seems to think this winter will be cold like last year. I hope not. The NWS said this year would be mild. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see. In California it’s much hotter than normal, and that is supposed to continue too.

          It’s still 37 here in Austin and cloudy. Come on sun.

    • Fannie says:

      Got our first snow, wind was blowing, but has died down. Going on 5 hours, but not sticking like I thought it would.

    JJ – great post. Would you be able to utilize this to get your Classic Oldies instead of Direct TV? http://thinkprogress.org/culture/2014/11/13/3591851/mpaa-website-streaming/

    It’s not Joe Manchin. 🙂

    HuffPo: Jon Tester Will Lead Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee For 2016

    WASHINGTON — Sen. Jon Tester (D-Mont.) was named the next chair of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee on Thursday, placing a red-state Democrat with a populist streak in charge of recruiting 2016 candidates for the party.

    Tester’s new role was announced after Democrats in the Capitol held their leadership elections.

    “One of my concerns moving forward is being able to win in every state across this country — red state, purple state and blue,” Tester told reporters shortly after the new leadership team held a press conference. …

    Not since 1890 has there been so little common ground between Republicans and Democrats http://econ.st/1EC9wgf

    I was just perusing Memeorandum when I saw a story from Politico entitled “The Rudy Giuliani guide to beating Hillary Clinton.” My reaction was “Really?”
    I was wondering why Politico didn’t just pick Joe Schmo from the street and offered him the space to give that advice.

    Fortunately, Philip Bump from the WaPo beat me to it with this:
    Five other people as qualified to offer advice to Hillary Clinton as Rudy Giuliani”

    My favorite is Nr. 5

    • Literally anyone you might pass on the street today, wherever you happen to be. Let’s say you swing by the Winn-Dixie after work to pick up a broiled chicken. “Say,” you ask the cashier, “should a candidate for president be mean and get personal on the campaign trail?” If that cashier says no, he or she has offered campaign advice as valuable as that of the former mayor of New York. And you have a broiled chicken.

    I just got an e-mail from Elizabeth Warren. She is joining the Senate leadership. Quote:

    I just left a Senate Democrats caucus meeting, and I wanted you to know: Harry Reid has asked me to serve as Strategic Policy Advisor to the Democratic Policy and Communications Committee.

    That’s a fancy way of saying that I’ve been asked to join the Democratic leadership in helping decide how we can fight most effectively for the people who are counting on us.

    I don’t kid myself. Life is about to get harder in the Senate when Republicans take over control, but this is a seat at the table for all of us – and that matters. It’s a seat at the table to fight for kids who are being crushed by student loan debt. Working moms and dads struggling to make it on minimum wage. Seniors who depend solely on their Social Security checks to keep a roof over their heads. And all of us who just want a level playing field and a fighting chance to succeed.

    • dakinikat says:

      Reid evidently got an earful.

    • ANonOMouse says:

      Hell YEAH!!! Maybe she can drag this Party back to the left where it might have a chance of crafting a winning message. I’m hoping that Hillary decides to campaign to the left, IF she runs. Still I’m reluctant to jump for joy because I’ve watched the Party long enough to know that when the time comes to step up on stage and say things like (“We support Choice”, “We support wage parity for women”, “We support the full range of contraception coverage in insurance for women and men”, “We support full equality in civil law for LGBT people”, “We support Immigration Reform and Amnesty”, “We support SPUHC”, “We support legislation to protect SS/Medicare/Medicaid”, “We support raising taxes on Corporations and the Rich”.) they aren’t likely to do it.

    • RalphB says:

      I’ll bet the Warren/2016 people are pissed about that.

    Folks, we really honestly genuinely and truly did not think we would live to see this day. Sure, we have called Bill Kristol stupid many times. Many many times. All the times. We’re aiming for the world record on that, really.

    But now we don’t even have to bother pointing it out anymore, because he’s gone and done it himself:

    Dak, what’s going on with Landrieu pushing for a vote in support of the Keystone XL pipeline?

    • dakinikat says:

      She’s trying to get re-elected. They also said she voted against Harry Reid. But, she’s always been in big oil’s pocket. I tell her every chance I get and see her that this isn’t a good deal for us. Better we let them drill us because we do get money for that. She’s solidly in the pocket of big oil though.

      • ANonOMouse says:

        A DINO???? It seems that the Southern Dems are all convinced that the only way they can stay in office is if they’re DINO’S. I think what we’ve seen is that being a DINO doesn’t work either, better to just to be a LIBERAL and die with your boots on.

    Worst voter turnout in 72 years … no wonder the freaks keep winning … it’s an evil catch 21

    • RalphB says:

      Yay Texas wasn’t worst this year. We came in next to last just ahead of Indiana. sigh.

      There’s another voter statistic that’s even worse. Among all eligible voters, registered or not, voter participation has been dropping in every election cycle since 1840! I don’t know how to square that with anything other than sheer apathy on the part of our fellow citizens.

  11. Oh wow, I just finished watching this thing on PBS about the daughters of Queen Victoria, how interesting. They need to do a movie on those 5 sisters!
