Take Note

Chik-Fil-A's values are not Chicago's values, says Rahm "DeadFish" Emmanuel.  But Louis Farrakahn?  Sure.  Come on in.  Rahm, exactly what are "Chicago values," anyway?

You Might be a Rombot If...

In homage to Jeff Foxworthy, you might be a rombot if...

  • are so scared of the thought of another four years of Obama, you think anyone who questions what President Mitt Romney might do should be treated like an Obama supporter
  • ...the word "rombot" makes you cringe, but the word "palinista" makes you giggle like a schoolgirl
  • think Romneycare was a brilliant conservative touche, but you trust President Mitt Romney to repeal Obamacare because simply because he said he would
  • can somehow square the circle when shown footage of Mitt Romney calling himself progressive
  • cheer Romney's focus on the economy, forgetting that "It's the economy, stupid" was a James Carville talking point from 1992
More to come as the mindless rombots inspire me.

Doctor Milton Wolf had a brilliant piece last week in the Washington times about how certain movement conservatives, Ann Coulter among them, are complicit in redefining conservatism into something it's not.  He beautifully articulates a point that I've been trying to make for months, but let's not kid ourselves.  No apology for Romneycare will be forthcoming from Ann Coulter, let alone Romney.  In order to have any hope of securing this armchair pundit's vote, W. Mitt Romney would have to give a speech that the American people have no realistic hope of ever hearing.

RIP Steve Jobs -- 1955 - 2011

In the interest of full disclosure, I should mention that I don't use Apple products at all, really.  No Ipad.  No Iphone.  No Ipod.  No Itunes.

And yet, my admiration for the late Steve Jobs can hardly be overstated.  He was one of a handful of people that shaped the twentieth century and made the twenty-first century as we know it possible.  So many have managed to say it more eloquently than I ever could, so I'll leave it at a simple "Good bye, Steve.  You'll be missed."
