Who wants to redesign GOP.com? Michael Steele says that he wants it to be "outside the box' — then not only keep it outside the box, but take it to someplace the box hasn't even reached yet." Gawker has a good post on this, or just read the whole (hilarious) RFP below:

First she talks about her Dad is preventing her from getting dates, now she's writing this tirade against Ann Coulter. I think I'm falling in love with Meghan McCain. Here's an excerpt:
"More so than my ideological differences with Ann Coulter, I don’t like her demeanor. I have never been a person who was attracted to hate or negativity. I don’t believe in scare tactics and would never condone or encourage anyone calling President Obama a Muslim. But controversy sells and Coulter is nothing if not controversial. Everything about her is extreme: her voice, her interview tactics, and especially the public statements she makes about liberals. Maybe her popularity stems from the fact that watching her is sometimes like watching a train wreck."
Richard Dawkins' lecture of the University of Oklahoma was interrupted by a man who got up and screamed that Dawkins would "burn in hell." Somehow I don't think he was particularly affected by that insult. Via Atheist Media Blog:
David Carr has an intriguing column in today's Times about the future of newspapers. He suggests that the nation's newspapers band together and decide to to stop offering free content, block Google and other aggregators from using their articles, stop selling remnant ad space, and throw out the Newspaper Preservation Act. What do you think? Would you pay to read the New York Times online? What would happen to blogs like this that don't create anything original and rely on other people's hard work?
