Caption This!

In probably the most symbolic meeting of President Obama’s less than 100 day old presidency, the President and First Lady met with the Queen of England and the Duke of Edinburgh. And this is the photo they took to commemorate the occasion. I wonder. Just what is going on in this picture?

The 2008 Presidential Election: It’s a Chick Flick!

There is a reason why I love Maureen Dowd. It’s as though she read my mind with her latest column, entitled “Vice in Go-Go Boots?” Some of my favorite excerpts below.


The guilty pleasure I miss most when I’m out slogging on the campaign trail is the chance to sprawl on the chaise and watch a vacuously spunky and generically sassy chick flick.

So imagine my delight, my absolute astonishment, when the hokey chick flick came out on the trail, a Cinderella story so preposterous it’s hard to believe it’s not premiering on Lifetime. Instead of going home and watching “Miss Congeniality” with Sandra Bullock, I get to stay here and watch “Miss Congeniality” with Sarah Palin.

Sheer heaven.

It’s easy to see where this movie is going. It begins, of course, with a cute, cool unknown from Alaska who has never even been on “Meet the Press” triumphing over a cute, cool unknowable from Hawaii who has been on “Meet the Press” a lot.
