Herman Cain has found a way to revive Herman Cain's campaign:"Women For Cain" is an online national fellowship of women dedicated to helping elect Herman Cain as the next President of the United States."Women for Cain" is also a stock photo festival of the highest order, and we can't resist playing along.

Unemployment in November fell to its lowest level since March 2009, dropping from 9 percent to 8.6 percent. We continued added private sector jobs at more or less the same pace, with 140,000 new ones in the private sector offset by 20,000 jobs lost in the public sector. In a normal month, that would just about enough gain overall to keep up with population growth. But if we're adding jobs at a steady rate rather than an amazing one, why did the unemployment rate drop at such an impressive amount? It's so many people quit looking for work. read more

Rock Star Day at Liberty Park

12/01/11 06:20PM

I was down at Liberty Park this afternoon around lunch time when it also happened to be time for some celebrity musicians to play Occupy Wall Street. I've missed all the other performances down there, so this was the first time I've seen it in person. There's no electricity allowed, so they basically just stand up on a cement bench and strum and sing as loud as they can. It's hard to hear, but there were enough cameras and media there that I'm sure there's a version online that's better than having been there in person. read more

In California, the evicted are re-occupying their homes.

The next Occupation? Your neighborhood

12/01/11 02:56PM

As the weather turned colder, we asked on this blog and on TRMS what shape the Occupy protests would start to take, particularly in cold-weather cities. Having many of their outdoor encampments uprooted and destroyed by police since then has changed the physical aspect of the movement, combining with the cold to push Occupy Wall Street and many other protests to take shelter elsewhere. But where Occupiers are may not be as important as what they're doing. read more

Mitt Romney vs. humans, 1994

12/01/11 01:43PM

Producer Mike Yarvitz finds this old tape of Mitt Romney running for U.S. Senate in 1994, against incumbent Senator Ted Kennedy. Mr. Romney didn't just get that cringe-worthy style yesterday."Hi, how are you? Don't run away. I want to shake your hand. I know, you haven't got your makeup on yet, right?" he says to a woman outside a store. "You do, you do."(Adding: h/t Ben Smith) read more
