Many many (amusing and smart) responses to a Tweet by Grover Norquist

Post 167860 by DMelanogaster deleted for the following reason: Eh, we've already had a fair amount of discussion of No, Not The Good Grover's recent twittery dumbfuckery in the current catch-all US politics thread, don't need a new post just for him. -- cortex

They call it a "Silent Recall"

Post 167851 by haikuku deleted for the following reason: This is a blog post from a few years ago, with some updates -- the last of which was over six months ago. It seems like a recall PSA? which on its own is not really the sort of thing Metafilter is for. If there's a longer, more interesting story behind this, feel free to post, and if you need some help, please don't hesitate to contact us, and we can help you work it out! -- taz

This Is Not Normal

Post 167743 by dave99 deleted for the following reason: Single link Op/Ed is a problem at the best of times, but we've also had a ton of these "why do liberals/Dems suck so much?" and Left vs Liberal posts and ensuing fights, and probably don't need Round 100 of that. -- taz

A brief golden age of health?

Post 167721 by Zarkonnen deleted for the following reason: Seems like that link has fairly significant issues that would need to be framed around pretty clearly in the post for this to really be a good idea. Probably better that we give this a pass. -- cortex

We’re still picking up pieces of Dad all over Cascade Shores.

Post 167564 by theora55 deleted for the following reason: Yeah, no worries, but probably better to make this if it's worth making with the "this is a joke" aspect clear in the framing. -- cortex

The presidential debates, edited for humor (NSFW)

Post 167578 by steeringwheel deleted for the following reason: Why don't you drop these in the ongoing political megathreads? Seems thin to stand alone. -- Eyebrows McGee

Orb demands loyalty

Post 167573 by Joe in Australia deleted for the following reason: This is an interesting article, but as framed it's picking up a lot of flags and only discussion of the political leaking -- maybe try again tomorrow with framing that makes the content more clear? -- Eyebrows McGee
