COMMENT OF THE DAY

Congratulations from a fan of the team who last benefitted from the curse: the NY Mets. When was that? 19″86″. Weird huh? It’s like the Babe was TELLING you when he’d lift the curse.
Good job, guys. The fact that that you turned it around on the Yankees makes me all warm inside :)

LOOKS LIKE SHE FORGOT LAURA BUSH WAS A TEACHER, TOO

LOOKS LIKE SHE FORGOT LAURA BUSH WAS A TEACHER, TOO

Barbara Bush tells grandson not to waste his life being a teacher:

Council: How did you make the transition from wanting to be a teacher to wanting to be a lawyer?
Bush: Candidly, my grandmother Barbara Bush sat me down. We were having a dinner one time and she had said . . . “You should really think about getting a graduate degree for your long-term prospects. You can always go back to teaching. It’s a noble cause, but with the law you’re able to help your community out in a much larger scale and also make a little bit more money.” She wanted me to make money. That’s kind of her litmus test for success, unfortunately, especially before getting into public service or politics or something like that.


Read more about how George P. Bush (son of Jeb) got into a prestigious law firm despite placing in the bottom half of his class at UT Law School.

” Some people say that’s something you can pat yourself on the back for because UT is a top 20 school. But at the same time . . . I gave it my all, all the way through my third year. But it wasn’t enough. And I guess I could make the argument that a lot of it was ideologically driven and that some of these professors made their political beliefs well known. But I’m not going to blame it on that. I’m going to blame it on myself. But I was fortunate enough to get the clerkship and be in a firm like this. “

Yeah.

Fortunate.

HA.

Damn all that affirmative action for minorities.

THE ECONOMIST ENDORSES JOHN KERRY

THE ECONOMIST ENDORSES JOHN KERRY

John Kerry says the war was a mistake, which is unfortunate if he is to be commander-in-chief of the soldiers charged with fighting it. But his plan for the next phase in Iraq is identical to Mr Bush’s, which speaks well of his judgment. He has been forthright about the need to win in Iraq, rather than simply to get out, and will stand a chance of making a fresh start in the Israel-Palestine conflict and (though with even greater difficulty) with Iran. After three necessarily tumultuous and transformative years, this is a time for consolidation, for discipline and for repairing America’s moral and practical authority. Furthermore, as Mr Bush has often said, there is a need in life for accountability. He has refused to impose it himself, and so voters should, in our view, impose it on him, given a viable alternative. John Kerry, for all the doubts about him, would be in a better position to carry on with America’s great tasks.

Of course, I don’t know how much influence the ‘Economist’ will have in getting people to vote for Kerry five days until the polls close.

THE RNC WANTS THE 411

THE RNC WANTS THE 411

According to Slantpoint, Ken Mehlman and the Bush/Cheney Campaign is desperate for some information about shadowy threats, smears and lies. Like the 9/11 families begging Bush to testify under oath about the months leading up to their loved ones deaths, Mehlman pleads for help:

With very few days left, we need you to be our eyes and ears on the ground. Call our hotline at 1-888-610-8170 if you get any suspicious messages.

I, for one, plan to call in to report the shadowy threats of nuclear bombs going off in American cities, danger to the Citicorp center and these hate baiting mailers.

Go on, call.

It’s probably the last time the Bush administration and their allies will ever elicit the truth from us “eyes and ears on the ground.”

So’s your face

So’s your face

Scrubs is now my favorite show on TV. If they don’t win the Emmy for best comedy now that Sex & the City is gone, I’ll just cry.

What?

You got a problem with that?

Is it too childish, sexist or slapstick for ya?

Well, so’s your face.

HA.

Work has been, well work. I leave for vacation in 36 hours and they mean to get every last minute out of me before I go. There’s not too much interesting political news, except that Karol may be suffering from a meltdown. Will confirm when I hear actually bubbling over the phone. But that’s more funny than interesting.
