Barbie and the shrew

According to my blog’s stat program, the term “Caribou Barbie” is gaining on (but is still well behind) “I hate Kate Gosselin” and “Kate Gosselin shrew” in the keyword search sweepstakes, and poor old Jerome Block, Jr., is now a sad and distant third, eclipsed by two women other women love to hate. And as virulently as some women hate Sarah, it seems like a lot more women hate Kate.

A reader who commented on my blog wrote to tell me about her own blog, which is a spoof of the “Jon and Kate Plus Eight” called “Tom and Trix Plus Six.” I checked it out and found it quite clever, especially the three-part Trading Spouses spoof where Trix Googler (Kate Gosselin) trades places with Esther Goddard (Michelle Duggar). The spoof is satire, and not particularly mean-spirited, though the author said she’s received hate mail. This hardly surprises me, given my own experience.

Apologies to my husband, who likes long, meaty posts here at Moralia, but I have to get back to work now. I have a second grader to teach, a pot roast to make, and the incredibly depressing economic crisis news to watch during baby-feeding breaks. I still haven’t completely sorted out my own thoughts on the bail-out, but watching Harry Reid talk about it on CNN this morning, I do know that I don’t trust that guy as far as I could throw him.
