Obama: You're funny.
W.: What are you laughin' at?
Clinton: With Bush Sr. in a wheelchair, I'm the tallest!
Bush Sr.: Is this Jeb's library?
Carter: I hate all these guys. Read full post »
No, seriously, I'm asking. Who gave her that phrase? Is it purposeful or just hairbrained? I just don't know anymore. I think maybe she just thought it sounded "real good and bloody, you know?"(Warning: it's almost 8 minutes long - yikes).
and everybody looking for a note
like life was just a fortune cookie
Given the recent story about the fraudulent study linking autism to the MMR vaccine, I thought it was a good time to recommend a blog that offers interesting information and encourages thoughtful dialogue on ASD. It's called The Tree With Blue Lights, and the blogger is the parent of a… Read full post »
The metaphor was too perfect for non-fiction. It was Icaraus and Daedalus meets Pixar's UP. The images of a homemade craft gliding across the sky were lovely: a bird, a plane...no, a mylar balloon shaped like a flying saucer. But wait, up in the sky: there's a boy in the balloon!… Read full post »
Jessica Yellin just appeared, Princess Leia-like, in the "Situation Room" on CNN. Wolf Blitzer kept reminding us that he was talking to a hologram. "You are indeed a hologram, Jessica Yellin," he would remind us (or her?) as he spoke to her, virtually, "in person", even though she was "really" in… Read full post »
AP/November 2, 2008
With the election set for this Tuesday, Nov. 4, sources tell the Associated Press that Barack Obama will likely fall short of winning every single vote in America. Despite a collapsing economy, Americans' fatigue with the war in Iraq, and President Bush's historically low a… Read full post »
If you saw the clip of John McCain defending Barack Obama during one of his town hall meetings, you know what I'm talking about. A woman who could not quite put a sentence together (no, not Sarah Palin) said that she "couldn't trust Obama," and then went to say…
There's a theory in psychology called "Imaginary Audience": developed in the 1960s by David Elkind, it became the standard for understanding adolescent psychology, and still provides the foundation for debates in that field today. It goes something like this: adolescents think (erroneously) that ever… Read full post »
Here is Palin from back in the summer, weighing in on sexism in the media and commenting on Hillary Clinton. I was going to name this post "Thank God for Hillary Clinton." Why? Because with Palin making a fool of herself with Katie Couric, and with the upcoming vice presidential… Read full post »
As a new survey suggests, in order to win the Presidential race, Barack Obama must outrun race itself. The upshot of the survey was that, yes, racial prejudice will play a role in the election (the effect is calculated to cost Obama 6 percentage points).This doesn't exactly tell us something we… Read full post »
Joan Walsh, Salon editors, photoshop wizards, "liberals" -- stop the madness! Why is Salon featuring Palin in a dominatrix costume on its home page? Surely we must realize that when we stoop to sexist portrayals to get hits, we do the Republicans' job for them. "Look -- poor Sarah Palin is… Read full post »
Have to go back a couple of nights to Giuliani and Palin. They offered quite a one-two punch. Giuliani was a kind of half-hearted vampire up there, all sunken sarcasm and hollow words. His bloodthirsty mockery of community organizers was matched only by the unsolicited chants of "drill baby drill" fr… Read full post »
No, not about John McCain. What Sarah Palin tells us about why Hillary Clinton's campaign for President was important, and why her candidacy continues to resonate for many women. In all the blatantly sexist talk about "angry women" who can't "get over" Hillary's loss, some very important things were… Read full post »
