Nicely done, Dr. Maddow. That was an excellent address. My favorite line, "Some dreams are bad dreams." No kidding and well-argued.
"'I'm a huge believer in states' rights..." Do you think this tool has any idea that "state's rights" is code for all manner of racist asshattery? And congrats to the winner. "Ask me after I've had a pizza" is a much better response than, "I'm going to DIsneyland."
The Great State of Inebriation.
George went into politics because Karl Rove got a boner when he saw the Shrub in jeans and a flight jacket. I heard Rove tell the story. He left out the boner part but he did say how excited he was saw him and immediately thought he had the "look" that Texans would vote for. Rove was working for...
My OCD requires that a five word recap have five words, no more, no less. Five shall be the number thou shalt recap, and the number of the recapping shall be five. Six shalt thou not recap, neither recap thou four, excepting that thou then proceed to five. Seven is right out. Supernatural —...
For my 10th birthday my dad took me to a Chicago Blackhawks game. The Hawks beat the Red Wings and I saw both Bobby Hull and Gordie Howe play. (This was back in the day when only cities with actual winters had NHL teams.)
I need to get a bit of assholedness out of the way, first — OMG; I had no idea there was a rainforest in New York and that it needed saving. Now that that's done — OMFG that was the 2nd most amazing musical extravaganza we'll see this week. The first will be this week's Joss-directed; Neil Patrick...
I once gave a gym membership as a Valentine present. And shortly thereafter gave the "real present" — jewelry. Smoking and drugs are deal breakers for me, too. (I'm an ex-smoker and don't need the temptation of open packs lying around.) Another deal breakers is bigotry but it's sometimes harder to...
fuctardedness of the first order. Cable News Wonders: If A SCOTUS Nominee Plays Softball ... Is She Gay? http://tpmlivewire.talkingpointsmemo.com/2010/05/cable-news-wonders-if-a... I hope this isn't an indicator of what the right plans for the hearings on Kagan.
There should be a list of STOP HERE'S for books and movies or even better Specially Edited Lesbian Editions/Cuts. I remember the first time I saw The Fox. I knew nothing good would come of those final 15 or so minutes. **SPOILERS** **SPOILERS** **SPOILERS** It combined the dreaded "femmes die young...
Tex that was my shopping excursion not a description of the ensemble. And I admit it put me in a good mood all day.
Is it wrong to celebrate Naked Thursday by buying new boxer briefs and crew socks? I didn't think so.
I forgot about that — definite sense of betrayal.
I saw Michaela Conlin at ComicCon last year. She is jaw-dropping beautiful. And that's not a phrase I use very often.
Minnie, do you remember when June Lockhart played "The Lady Doctor" on Petticoat Junction? As if I needed another reason to stay glued to the set for that show.
yep
Agreed. Last night was the same thing. Ben Nelson? Seriously? Thankfully she had the good sense to have Dahlia Lithwick on to bat down some of that nonsense. Lithwick also had a pretty even-handed article on Kagan earlier this week on Slate: http://www.slate.com/id/2253496/
Sounds like you all had a great weekend. Khalil saw the photo of Uncle Neo helping brand the calf and said, "I sure don't like that, but I'll still play Guitar Hero with her."
". . . liberals worried about this nomination" Grace, I think you inadvertantly hit the on the explanation of the progressive divide over Kagan. Lower case "liberals" are concerned about single issues and how will Kagan vote on this or that. Capital L "Liberals" take a longer, more comprehensive...
Mystics, have you been watching her coverage? I don't get it. If there's one thing I always count on is for her to do her homework — but it seems she's only taking the anti-Kagan stuff seriously.
Grace, there's a lot wrong with using that example. 1. It's one single example (hasty generalization) 2. Roberts interrupted her every other word. No one would sound smooth in that situation. 3. Most important, as I pointed out in the other thread—There is a huge difference between the skills...
