Still adore Obama. He is brilliant, sincere, unpretentious, classy. A true leader, gazing down, bemused, as the petty GOP contenders claw each other's eyes out like 13 year old girls.
The country is poised on the edge of recovery, thanks to his steady hand: unemployment is down, the stock market is up, the car industry is back in business, and banks are paying back the bailout money, with profits going to the government. Bin Laden is dead, and our boys are coming back from Iraq, just as he promised.
If only he could get his jobs bill past the obstructionist Republicans, who are willing to destroy the middle class simply to regain power, this country would be back on its feet in no time!
So glad there is absolutely no competition for his office. All the sane Republicans know there's not one among them that could handle the most difficult job in the world, so they're in hiding, while their two representatives, Romney (aka Romney-the-Dog-Abuser) and Gingrich (aka Gingrich-the-Wife-Abuser) battle it out.

Simply, this article. Says it all. Romney was 36 at the time. I shudder to think where the maid would have sat should he have decided to bring her along.

Does anyone else have a really bad feeling about this new show that Jerry Seinfeld is producing? This "Marriage Ref" reality (I think?) show? Does anyone else have the sick feeling that it is going to be as awful as anything ever produced by network TV and… Read full post »
I recently went to the gyno for a check-up and they had these newfangled devices into which you load all your pertinent info and then you're part of their database.
So I got to this one point in the questions and this is what it asked:
This just in:
Today it was reported in the New York Times (no byline) that a gang in the remote jungles of Lima, Peru has been kidnapping and killing people to siphon off their fat, selling it to cosmetic companies in Europe.
Gang members have told police that the fat… Read full post »
I haven’t been invited to any Halloween parties at least as yet, but I anticipate this eventuality with the same dread every year. What costume should I wear? What can I dress as that does not make me look; 1) fat, 2) like a whore 3) like a fat whore 4)… Read full post »

I’ve been wanting to blog on this topic for a while and haven’t had time but OS writer Walter Blevins’ interesting blog on newly “supersized” uniforms for flight attendants (http://open.salon.com/blog/just-walt/2009/07/12/northwest_flight_attendants_demand_bigger… Read full post »
Well kids, it’s happened again. Forget all this twaddle about people going broke and losing their homes and living in tents and not having enough money to buy milk and bread and Tall skim frappuccinos.
T'was a date that I wanted to happen and did
With a man whose attentions for which I did bid
With sweetness and batting of eyelids so coated
In make-up I easily noted
That I couldn't life up my own eyelids to see,
The person across in… Read full post »
According to Freud, men have forever been asking, "What do women want?" and let me be the first to tell you. It's very simple. They just want a guy who can dress to go out without looking ridiculous.
Guys go out in outfits that could only be attractive to fetishists… Read full post »
Well people of OS – Here is my reportage on the Soiree, aka The Salon, of Salon that took place last night, Thursday, April 16, 2009 in New York City, from approximately 6:30pm to 9pm (or at least that’s when I left to go to work – half in the bag… Read full post »
Pure joy. I had to share it. I'm teary-eyed. Wish I was adept enough to link it to the word "joy".
Reminds me of my favorite scene in "The Fisher King" - waltzing in Grand Central Station.
Hell, why not add that Fisher King scene while I'm at it?… Read full post »

You read a lot about how stupid and greedy these people were who bought homes they couldn't afford with money they didn't have, resulting in bundles of "toxic" mortgages that, when they ballooned in cost, began the collapse of the house of cards it turns out the U.S.'s and in fact,… Read full post »
I’m going to have cheat to be included in this “best movie” thread. I just can’t do it without naming movies that I think were “best” for certain things they offered.

In the light of Nadya Suleman's (The Octomom) delivery of 8 babies, with 6 others still at home, and the interesting support of her by many with conservative leanings, I offer this satire. (Note: I originally wrote this soon after the babies were born. Now, in 2012, Nadya is on public… Read full post »
My 25 List: (the hardest thing I think I’ve ever been “assigned”)

Well I watched the premiere Episode of “Lost” the other night and I am so glad: not only did they explain what's been going on but they’ve given us a taste of what's to come.
In the next few episodes this is what will happen:

I recently went to see “The Curious Case of Benjamin Button”. Not bad, but not memorable. A little too saccharine for my tastes, but special effects were well done (although that’s really truly not what I want to care most about in a film).

I don't have anything to say and I'm on my way out the door, but I'm just yelling here on my own and had to join my voices with those in the crowds I'm watching on CNN. Hooray! Yes, America, you did it! "A real sense of national pride!" (per reporters)… Read full post »
This one's for Mungular in particular, but for also for the rest of the writers here (that's everyone I suppose), employed or not.

You'd be surprised (or I suppose men would be surprised; not women who wear these things) how easy it is to do. This happens to me fairly regularly, me with my undies on sideways, and sometimes I catch it before the jeans go on, and sometimes I 'm… Read full post »
I'm one of those who travels for the holidays; not to anywhere particularly fascinating, but to the homes of friends and family who put me up in the spare bedroom, on the couch, or who kindly kick their small children to the floor so I have a place to… Read full post »
We’d all like to think we’re not cruel people. We give to charity, we hold doors for strangers, we think appropriately sad thoughts when we read sad things in the paper. But the truth is, we sometimes are, and the people to whom we are most often cruel are the ones with… Read full post »
