By: Monday December 31, 2007 8:04 pm

It’s that time of the year – time to make lists of resolutions that you SWEAR you’ll complete in the new year. Riiiiiiight.

1. No more negative attack ads! Only positive attack ads!
2. Dye sideburns gray.
3. Find undisputable proof that Jesus rode a dinosaur.

1. Remember my own name without prompting.


The Law of Unintended Consequences

By: Monday December 31, 2007 6:00 pm

Okay, this is so stupid it’s just mind-boggling:

Despite more than 20,000 lawsuits filed against music fans in the years since they started finding free tunes online rather than buying CDs from record companies, the recording industry has utterly failed to halt the decline of the record album or the rise of digital music sharing.

You Say You Want A Resolution…

By: Monday December 31, 2007 4:30 pm

A little Beatles to ring in the New Year. Good way to start things out. Make any resolutions this year? I’m going to get healthier — better food choices, more regular exercise, some semblance of stress management, etc. Which means I’ll be looking for some great up-beat music to walk to, and some acoustic goodies for my mellow days.

After Huckabee blew the landing at his press conference, the Huckabus made its way over to his office nearby where a Ron Paul throng was shouting and a group of anti-war protesters had made their way into his office with signs saying “who would Jesus bomb?”

Huckabee’s campaign had them arrested.

“Charlie Wilson’s War” Celebrates Our Destructive Foreign Policy

By: Monday December 31, 2007 1:00 pm

Having read lots of positive reviews and generally liking everyone involved with the movie, I saw Charlie Wilson’s War over the holiday. It was extremely entertaining, beautifully produced and well acted (though Hanks never quite got that East Texas accent right). It was also a love letter to the aggressive imperialism and military interventionism that Very Serious People in both parties agree should be the United States’ foreign policy.

The Huckabee School of Political Theater

By: Monday December 31, 2007 11:35 am

Huckabee just held a press conference where he announced that he made a negative ad against Romney — Lord forgive him — but at the last minute he decided to turn the other cheek and not broadcast it. But just to show he wasn’t shittin’ y’all, he decided to show it to a few of his closest friends at a press conference that included Tim Russert, Joe Klein, Barbara Comstock and a few hundred journalists and bloggers of varying degrees of noteriety.

Greetings From Iowa

By: Monday December 31, 2007 10:00 am

We’re here in Iowa. It’s frigging cold. There’s a lot of buzz around Edwards, and the sense of a lot of people is that he may pull it off.

We got our press credentials and hope to catch up with Huck this afternoon. Very excited to see Huckmania up close and personal.

Via the NYTimes: New details of Benazir Bhutto’s final moments, including indications that her doctors felt pressured to conform to government accounts of her death, fueled the arguments over her assassination on Sunday and added to the pressure on Pakistan’s leaders to accept an international inquiry….
