Oh Jesus, Don't, Like, Most People Suffer Existential Crises When They…

You know how yesterday I said What Happened was a good name for the Scott McClellan book? Yeah well WTF would have obviously been better. So anyway: Day Two of Scott McClellan WTF patrol. This morning he went on Today and seemed pretty fucking sincere. Of course, high-minded idealists such as the New York Times » 5/29/08 10:00am 5/29/08 10:00am

"I Know: Barf." Truer Words Were Never Syndicated, Peggy!

"I know: Barf," writes Peggy Noonan in today's Journal, in the only good thing about having to do this crap the Friday before Memorial Day weekend and after another night of pointless inebriation. "One wants to be sympathetic to Mrs. Clinton at this point, if for no other reason than to show one's range," she… » 5/23/08 10:00am 5/23/08 10:00am

Hillary Explains How Obama Is Sort Of Like An African Dictator

I thought I drank away all my capacity for nuance last night but I can still sorta see how that might piss some people off.… » 5/22/08 10:00am 5/22/08 10:00am

Geraldine Ferraro: You = What The Media Needs To Start Ignoring

I said I was never going to post about the Clinton campaign and sexism, since more than 12 out of 12 Clinton campaign surrogates agree that's not why she lost to Obama (despite that, congrats on winning Kentucky yesterday!), and… » 5/21/08 10:00am 5/21/08 10:00am

Meet Italian Cabinet Member Mara Carfagna, A Woman Of Many, Um, Parts

John McCain: Yeah, Maybe Just Let This Guy Be President

Bummertown Thursday, dudes. There's a death toll of 20,000 in China, some 2 million displaced people in Burma (and a newly-passed referendum ensures they will all remain comprehensively and brutally oppressed!) and longest and most depressing of all, a not brief Times cover story on John McCain and All The Places In… » 5/15/08 10:00am 5/15/08 10:00am

Barack Obama Doesn't Look Too Psyched About That Beer

Fifty thousand people are dead or close to it in Burma, and Barack Obama can state unequivocally that he does not drink designer beer. Seventy five percent of American adults will at some point be impoverished. The average American car owner really must save $30 this summer. Chris Hitchens believes Barack Obama may be… » 5/06/08 10:00am 5/06/08 10:00am
