    It's nice to see those damn activist judges actually doing their jobs and defending freedom for once.
    While it's not a good sign, Justices asking tough questions isn't necessarily a deal-killer.

    Especially since Scalia, Alito and Thomas were already decided well beforehand regardless of constitution, law or precedent.

    I think the big concern is that it was kind of iffy to begin with. So, no, it's not a deal-killer but it is still very worrying.

    Clearly, it's just one more reason to re-elect Obama in 2012.

    Just pay to go somewhere there isn't a line, then.

    Frankly I don't give a shit about the level of health care the rich get.

    That's always been the dumbest and least accurate complaint.

    Waittimes or "just go pay for it somewhere else"?
    Wait times. It's a boogeyman to scare healthy people who value convenience over all else.

    Don't worry about underwear. You can buy that from vending machines there.

    The one traditional Norse dish with a claim to international popularity is smoked salmon. It is now a major export, and could be considered the most important Scandinavian contribution to modern international cuisine. Smoked salmon exists traditionally in many varieties, and is often served with scrambled eggs, dill, sandwiches or mustard sauce. Close to smoked salmon is gravlaks, (literally "dug salmon"), which is salt-and-sugar-cured salmon seasoned with dill and (optionally) other herbs and spices. Gravlaks is often sold under more sales-friendly names internationally. A more peculiar Norwegian fish dish is Rakfisk, which consists of fermented trout, a culinary relation of Swedish surströmming.

    Until the 20th century, shellfish was not eaten to any extent. This was partly due to the abundance of fish and the relative high expenditure of time involved in catching shellfish when set against its nutritional value, as well as the fact that such food spoils rather quickly, even in a northern climate. However, prawns, crabs and mussels have become quite popular, especially during summer. Lobster is of course popular, but restrictions on the catch (size and season) limit consumption, and in addition lobster has become rather rare, and indeed expensive.

    People gather for "krabbelag" ("crab party") feasts, either eating ready cooked crabs from a fishmonger, or cooking live crabs in a large pan. This is typically done outdoors, the style being rather rustic with only bread, mayonnaise and wedges of lemon to go with the crab. Crabs are caught in pots by both professionals and amateurs, prawns are caught by small trawlers and sold ready cooked at the quays. It is popular to buy half a kilo of prawns and eat it at the quays, feeding the waste to seagulls. Beer or white wine is the normal accompaniment.

    Mussels are normally bought live from a fishmonger who can guarantee them to be free of harmful micro-organisms; few people gather mussels themselves, owing to the risk of poisoning. Preparation is simple: steamed with garlic, parsley and perhaps some white wine, and served with bread. The juice can be enriched with double cream to make a soup.

    The largest Norwegian food export in the past has been "tørrfisk" - dried codfish. The Atlantic cod variety known as 'skrei' because of its migrating habits, has been a source of wealth for millennia, fished annually in what is known as the 'Lofotfiske' after the island chain of 'Lofoten'. Tørrfisk has been a staple food internationally for centuries, in particular on the Iberian peninsula and the African coast. Both during the age of sail and in the industrial age, tørrfisk played a part in world history as an enabling food for cross-Atlantic trade and the slave trade triangle.

    A large number of fish dishes are popular today, based on such species as salmon, cod, herring, sardine, and mackerel. Seafood is used fresh, smoked, salted or pickled. Variations on creamed seafood soups are common along the coastline.

    Due to its availability, seafood dishes along the coast are usually based on fresh produce, cooked by steaming and very lightly spiced with herbs, pepper and salt. While coastal Norwegians may consider the head, caviar sack and liver an inseparable part of a steamed seafood meal, most inland restaurants will spare diners this part of the experience. A number of the species available have traditionally been avoided or reserved for bait, but most common seafood is part of the modern menu.

    Summer is fucking coming, y'all!

    I'm hungry.

    Also,
    While coastal Norwegians may consider the head, caviar sack and liver an inseparable part of a steamed seafood meal, most inland restaurants will spare diners this part of the experience.

    is true. No matter what horror you tear out of a fish, some old guy from the west land would say in a harsh dialect "Are you throwing out <unintelligble>? That's the best part of the fish!

    She said she's retiring after the election.

    She has recently said she is rethinking that and staying as the secretary for a little longer.

    So rumors have gone both ways.

    I really don't think the 2008 primary was a trainwrek. A close fought campaign between two very good canidates is the exact opposite of what the pubbies are going through.

    The Republican primary right now is a rocket-trainwreck on the moon. The Democratic primary was a trainwreck because it turned into a slap fight that dragged on longer than it ought to have.

    If she has an 8 year term, she'll be really fucking old by the time she gets out. As unlikely as it is that we'd end up with Democrats winning four elections in a row, I think having her run in 2020 would be pretty much throwing the election away.

    Hillary's my boss. :)

    The current pub trainwreck is because the democratic primary was considered a big reason that Obama won. He was so vetted it was hard to sling mud against him at that point.

    A long primary because you have two evenly matched Good canidates is not the same thing as an Annointed One battling against a series of "anyone else" because he is so completely bad at getting elected.

    Also doesn't help that they have to pander to their base. And the base of the republicans want things that a lot of the country do not want. So it has been hurting their likeability ratings. The 8 billion debates hadn't helped either.
