knowledge is power

seeking article on framing the debate

I'm looking for a blogpost which I apparently didn't save to delicious (or if I did, I did in a way such that I can't find it now) about framing the debate -- about how the far-right keeps proposing really radical stuff and thus shifts where the "center" is perceived to be. One of the examples in the piece was about homeschooling (I'm almost certain). Anyone have any idea what I'm talking about?

on introversion

Shoshana finds it difficult to believe that I'm an Introvert -- which is understandable, since she experiences me in social situations in which I feel comfortable, and I don't do a whole lot of hiding out period.

But for all that I'm secretly an Extrovert (various MBTI books talk about Extroverts wanting to e.g. process things out loud), I'm currently underslept and after all-day forum, I opted to sit in the lounge with my laptop rather than go to Young Adult Meet & Greet or Bisexuality Affinity Group. Last night I opted not to go out with any of the various groups of people (opting rather to stay in the house on my laptop and sometimes drift into kitchen conversation) but I felt fine when I got up this morning. I'm frequently shy, quiet, and misanthropic, but the fact that when I'm feeling run-down my instinct is to retreat is what says to me that I'm an Introvert.
