  1. PLOS ONE: The Rise of Partisanship and Super-Cooperators in the U.S. House of Representatives

    For the couple of diagrams showing how the number of congresspeople voting cross-party has changed over time. I love attempts to visualise party political changes over time.

  2. Modern Two-Party System in the Senate Timeline

    Fascinating and detailed graph of shifts in Republican/Democrat senators from 1857-2006. I’d love to see something similar for the UK.

  3. Senator Charles Grassley on the costs of health care (C-SPAN video)

    In case you missed the clips on The Daily Show, here’s the full video of Grassley’s bizarre cartoon-powered Arthurian mixed metaphors. It’s stunning that this nonsense happens in government.

  4. YouTube - Daily Show - Federal Bail Out

    I could link to the Daily Show every day but here Jon Stewart *really* gets going on Congress. If you only have two minutes to spare, skip to 2:30 for a very fine, and justified, rant. Can we clone him for the UK?
