Christmas Links

This is crazy, check it out. A high rise fell over intact in Shanghai.

A really interesting blog post about the future of cell phones, cell companies, and Google.

Johnathon Chait says Republicans screwed up by trying to defeat health care reform instead of influence health care reform. I agree!

Matt Yglesias agrees with Chait and makes the obvious but interesting observation that by not participating in the reform process "they gave all their leverage away to Joe Lieberman and Ben Nelson, so we wound up with some weird freebies for Nebraska." This should have been obvious to any casual observer but somehow was still lost on Mitch McConnell.

Ezra Klein channels Tom Harkin who thinks the Nelson deal (getting full federal reimbursement for Medicaid expansion) might lead to full federalization of Medicaid.
