Worth remembering as Baghdad hangs in the balance. Also worth remembering, as Dick Cheney prepares for the inevitable Fox News interview blasting Obama’s weakness, is this 1994 Dick Cheney interview in which he warns of an Iraqi quagmire.
Oh, how I’ve dreaded this day, among the most holy on the hipster calendar. It’s Christmas morning for Europhiles, who, as I write this, are summoning every ounce of faux passion within their eager-to-please-the-right-people beings in preparation for Day 1 of the World Cup. They’ll act like they’ve been waiting their whole lives for this … Continue reading It begins

Which is what I heard a talking head say earlier on CNN, a conclusion I fear will become repeated as fact. Sexism, like racism, is still alive, but waning. But it didn’t keep Hillary from the presidency in 2008. It was her unsubtle sense of entitlement, along with the clumsy attempts by her and her … Continue reading Hillary Clinton didn’t lose in ’08 because she was a woman
From Grantland’s conversation about “Edge of Tomorrow”: We needed this movie from Tom Cruise. And Tom Cruise desperately needed to give it to us. … Not like it’s a new feeling, but there’s always something a little disorienting about Cruise box-office disappointment.

Just got my Goop newsletter, featuring more fascinating musings by Gwyneth “War is Hell” Paltrow: I am fascinated by the growing science behind the energy of consciousness and its effects on matter.

It should come as no surprise he hails from Mississippi (and was endorsed by Sarah Palin). From The New Republic: Republicans and movement conservatives take great umbrage at any suggestion that the party’s electoral coalition includes a troublingly influential faction of resentful white reactionaries. They may often lie dormant, but McDaniel’s likely victory is their … Continue reading ‘Resentful white reactionary’ likely headed to U.S. Senate
