A The Daily Beast Round Up

The Daily Beast is growing on us…growling on us? No. Growing.

  • “The Barrier That Didn’t Fall”, poll results are fascinating. As well as the editorial to accompany the findings.

  • Ana Marie Cox has stuff on the site. How could that possible suck?

  • The Buzz Board where smart people or at least people you’ve heard of recommend things…that maybe growling.

  • Our favorite is TOURe interview with rapper Jim Jones about the Barack Obama victory:

    Jim confessed that the election inspired him to drop the word “nigga” from his vocabulary-where it was a nearly ubiquitous presence-and replace it with “Obama.” He gave me a few examples: “What up, my Obama?” “Yo, did you see them Obamas last night?” “Now that’s a real Obama.”
