"Forest Whitaker" - Bad Books
I love this song. First thing I've heard in the last couple of months that really grabbed me.
"You started a job that you hate when you're sober and hate even more when you're not."
- More onanistic triumphalism -- I will note that the popular vote is now at 51-48 as per my prediction and Obama is up by 3.2 million votes. When all the votes are counted, there is a decent chance that Romney will end up with an highly poetic 47% of the vote.
- This is an incredibly wise post by Rich Yeselson at Political Animal about the difficulty for the Republican Party of engaging in ideological retooling without undermining their reactionary and tribal base. Also at Political Animal is this great piece by Ed Kilgore regarding the absolute imperative for the Democrats of improving off-year turnout in elections. Read them both. They are far superior to almost any of the half-assed post voting reflections you will see in your daily rag or the talking head shows.
- Why do I find this a bit shocking? Really, you're a congressional leader and the President calls and you don't take it because you are asleep?
- Might I just note that were Ashley Judd to run for the Senate and beat Mitch McConnell it would be the single greatest aesthetic improvement in the history of legislatures of any time and place. I have already explained to my wife that I will be quitting my job and working for her campaign full time.
