Mediaite has a clip from “Morning Joe” in which Joe Scarborough rails against the media’s treatment of Herman Cain, claiming that Cain’s series of recent gaffes aren’t receiving as much criticism as they ought to be.

Oh, dear — The Mary Sue reports on a new videogame called “To The Moon,” whose only premise is answering the question “If you could go back and change one thing in your life, what would it be?” Um…BRB, spending the rest of the afternoon soul-searching. To read the full post, click here.
Interesting: Mogulite reports on the donations that Occupy Wall Street has received thus far, which were large enough that the protestors had to put them somewhere. Somewhere like a bank. It raises all kinds of questions about how to reconcile activism with the realities of day to day life. Get the full post here.
