Apollo 4 on column of fire

AAR double standard

Okay, now, I have complained before about Air America Radio hosts (specifically Randi Rhodes and Jon Elliot) picking on Fred Thompson being in his sixties and having a wife who is in her forties, pointing out that colleague (on a different network) Mike Malloy is in his sixties and has a wife in her thirties. Well, I just thought of another and less obscure instance, which is Dennis Kucinich, who is twice divorced and 61 and now has a wife who is 30 and has a tongue stud; of course, Randi Rhodes adores this couple (and also is an acquaintance of Susan Sarandon, 61, and Tim Robbins, 49).

Winning among registered Dems

Exit polls supposedly say Clinton wins among registered Dems and slightly among women. Neither result would be too surprising to very many people, and it’s why I am prepared at any moment to look like a fool for having said she jumped the shark. :)

I of course have a bias against her candidacy. :)

Armando and the SCLM mentality

The Revenge of The Women Voters?
By Big Tent Democrat

CNN Exit Polling shows Hillary MIGHT have won New Hampshire. [By percents of the voters it’ll come out that way, about delegates I don’t know.—Barry] She took 47% of the women's vote to Obama's 34%. She lost men to Obama 42 to 30%. Women comprised 57% of the vote. The Media Misogyny is not taken to kindly by women. My math tells me that means Hillary won.


That would be a shocking result. And it would be a clear signal that the Media Misogyny, and yes Tweety Matthews, I am talking about you and your ilk, is unacceptable to women in the United States. And thank gawd for that.


So I commented:


Hmm, that must be what matters (none / 0) (#16)

I suppose it isn't possible that people actually voted for the candidate they preferred, rather than in spite towards the SCLM [So-Called Liberal Media]. But, hey, I guess as long as people are reacting primarily to what Tweety says then that's what really matters.

Somebody wake me when it's Super Tuesday.

Immature for his age

I’m not sure I have said this quite so clearly, but I am not simply saying that I think Obama is immature. I also think he is immature for his age.

Something just occurred to me: is he an only child?
