"O'Donnell is a creature of an age in which politics have no meaning beyond performance art. She is the Creature from the Green Room, with no apparent public career beyond being available whenever some teenage booker from the cable shows needed someone to say something reliably stupid. She is one of those people who'd show up at CNN with a waterbowl in her teeth if someone there blew a dog whistle . . .

She is what politics produces when you divorce politics from government. She is what you get when you sell to the country that nothing government can do will help, and that the government is an alien thing, and that politics is nothing more than the active public display of impotent grievance.

She is what politics produces when you turn it into a game show and the coverage of it over to a generation of high-technology racetrack touts. She is what you get when political journalism reduces politics to numbers on a scoreboard, divorcing it from the real-world consequences of what are increasingly seen as cute little eccentric decisions.

She is what politics produces when we abandon self-government for self-gratification. And that's the real obvious irony in her victory on Tuesday night, and the only thing about it that truly matters. Christine O'Donnell's campaign is a successful exercise in angry, misfit masturbation, with as little to do with the deadly problems this country faces as some guy wanking in the balcony of a grindhouse has to do with Romeo and Juliet."

Thys year, I'm participating in the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure on September 25, 2010 in Chicago. This will be my first-ever 10K timed race. For someone who hadn't run for exercise for over 15 years before this March, this is something of a big step.

My personal fundraising page is here:

Obviously, anything you want to donate is more than welcome. But I would also appreciate it if you would circulate this among your friends and associates. Every little bit helps!

And if anyone wants to join the team, please let me know and I'll try and set it up.

Thanks!

All this because Brittfar didn't get a chance to redeem himself in overtime?

I dunno, I'm really having a hard time rationalizing this new NFL playoff overtime rule as anything other than a really dumb idea.

Some might argue this poll has an implied spoiler, so just to be safe, let's cutCollapse )

No poll like a snow poll

Poll #1523499 I'm not going out there yet

Snow shoveling - do it while it's coming down, or wait til it's done?

Wait til its done - I'm not going out there twice

Get off your lazy ass and do it. More than once if needed.
1(33.3%)

Anything to add?

You know, I could really get behind this new trend of exciting Super Bowls that are actually decided in the fourth quarter.

And Sean Payton has balls of titanium-dipped adamantium. An onside kick to start the second half? Who does that?

Bad ads for bad beer

Geez, Anheuser-Busch's ad contributions are especially lame this year.

Is that in Aisle 7?

I just dictated a shopping list in my phone using the Dragon Naturally Speaking app. So now I am off to get bagels, two poblano chiles, Jews and potatoes.
