    Sigh.

    President Obama stopped shaking hands for a moment today so that he could embrace a sobbing woman whose uninsured sister recently died of colon cancer.

    And the Republican response.

    Sometimes I can’t believe this thing is even close. Jump to 2:01 of “the Republican response.”

  4. Some Longreads

    Hey y’all.

    Feel like I’m writing a letter to friends as opposed to my normal Tumblring duties over at the Cheat Sheet (which I LOVE!). Wanted to point out 2 longer political pieces I finally caught up on at the end of this week on Instapaper. (Is it in poor taste to discuss politics on personal tumblrs, as it is at a family get-together?) I saw them as solid pieces of journalism (says the guy who’s updated a tumblr called Blake Lively Doing Things in the same week). 

    So, you know, if you’re looking for some Obama Hope this weekend.
