Just because China has somehow kowtowed Taiwan into calling itself Chinese Taipei and leaving their flag behind, doesn't mean that you guys have to go along with it. You're independent journalists remember?

Or maybe I was too distracted by FundRace, HuffPost's addictive feature that makes it easy to see which presidential contender your friends, co-workers, and neighbors are contributing to. Our HuffPost team has been at it all week, crunching the numbers on everyone from media moguls to defense contractors to yoga instructors to Hollywood celebs (including the ones who didn't give).
