The Morning After

In the months since Donald Trump clinched the Republican nomination, Facebook has become a savage place. Friends on both sides have posted ugly, intolerant things. Multiple friends have posted along the lines of “If you’re voting for _________, unfriend me. I don’t want you here.” These come from the left in a ratio of about […]

I feel your exhaustion

President Obama being too tired to entertain British P.M. Gordon Brown was a hot topic around the blogosphere last week, but because I had something in common with Mr. Obama, I didn’t post about it. You see, I was too tired. My children are 7, 5, 3 and 8 months and, being a deranged lunatic […]

Republic of trivia

Don’t be shocked, but I’m writing today to defend Barack Obama. After all, the new President deserves a honeymoon, even from conservative bloggers, right? Since I can’t in good conscience defend the appalling Geithner appointment or the dubious Clinton one, I’m afraid my defense has to be on more frivolous issues, but still, a defense […]

The Iceman cometh?

It looks like Mario Burgos is going to get his wish. In a post titled, “Obama, please take our governor,” my fellow New Mexican opines that we’d be better off without Mr. Richardson in the governor’s mansion. Maybe so, but will “Judas” Richardson be better off having to watch his back serving in a cabinet […]

Caribou Barbie — the crazy, dangerous, castrating bitch

I still haven’t ascertained who coined the nickname Caribou Barbie for Sarah Palin, but it’s spreading through the cyberworld like wildfire. Already on Sept. 3 Wonkette was using the term as though it was nothing new, though I haven’t found any earlier occurrences. The name is actually quite clever. Sexist and demeaning, but clever. Barbie […]

The personal and the political

I’ve been dying to blog for days, but family matters have prevented it. As it is I’m supposed to be out the door with all my kids in half an hour, and I’m probably not going to make it — at least not with everybody’s hair fixed. I try to keep a balance on this […]

Disappointed in Denver

Is it just me, or does it seem like Bill Clinton is the only one having a really good time at the Democratic National Convention? He was cheerful as all get-out before Hillary’s speech, leaning in close to the good-looking redhead sitting next to him, chatting her up and giving her both barrels of the […]

Clinton cried, Pfleger lied

I had never heard of Father Michael Pfleger until I saw Hugh Hewitt’s blog post, but he made a memorable first impression in his sermon (Obama campaign speech?) at Trinity Church in Chicago. At one point he mocked Hillary Clinton’s now famous campaign trail tears, sobbing loudly and theatrically into a handkerchief. This was rather […]
