So odd. Even when I found the permalink to that comment ( http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/columns/Sunday_Ref... ) it still didn't take me (in Chrome dev build, at least) directly to the comment.

Technical explanation: The Disqus comments don't load until a second or two after the permalink's anchor jump (#comment-55003614) is attempted by the browser. So when the browser tries to jump to the comment, the comment isn't there yet.

It's an unfortunate side-effect. I wonder if Disqus could circumvent this by using a hashchange-type trick (referencing Ben Alman's BBQ jQuery addon).
