Two Hundred and Counting

Today, 538 Refugees posted its 200th article. It’s remarkable to see how much five people with busy lives can write. And we have more in store as we approach the new year.

Here are some previews of coming articles:

  • Sarah Palin and her reality TV show
  • A discussion of the principles behind progressive taxation
  • A look at the 112th Senate, and possible rule changes
  • The conspiracy behind Reagan’s October Surprise
  • Revisiting the Ansari X-Prize
  • A series of articles on potential Republican Presidential candidates

Above all, we look forward to your contributions as commenters. 538 Refugees was formed as a place to have lively, interactive discussion on political topics of the day. As PBS might say, this site is made possible by contributions from commenters like you. Thank you.

    Those sound like some great topics and I know you must have even more that were not posted. I hope one is on the Two Santa Theory that got mentioned briefly in the Merry Christmas thread. Keep up the great work.

    An old bald guy, a palm tree, and a bird with a pitchfork.

    I think that’s a Blue-Footed Booby.

    @Treme… I think that’s a Blue-Footed Booby.

    Ah so. You are obviously correct. So who’s the old bald guy? And who’s 200, and why are they on a desert island?

    And why is the blue-footed booby carrying a sword? I thought boobies were more into sidearms.

    “Hey.. is it Charles Darwin?”
    Duh! Is that a joke?
    Of course its Charles Darwin whose birthday is February 12 1809 (same as Abe Lincoln). So that cake is from 2 years ago…
    Hey, do you suppose that Charles Darwin and Abe Lincoln were actually the same person? Or twins separated at birth?
