About Me:
Middle-aged (thank god); married (oddly enough); native New Yorker; one (thoroughly magnificent, thanks) child, She Who Must Be Obeyed, aka HM (Her Majesty). But a mere lowly end-user by profession, and a former [pretty much everything, at least in somewhat limited first-world terms]. Extravagant (mostly organic) cook, slapdash (completely organic) gardener, brain space originally assigned to names and faces piled up with the overflow from the desperately overcrowded Old Movie and Broadway Trivia section, garage space which was originally assigned to a car piled up with boxes of books. Dreadful housekeeper, indifferent dresser, takeout menu ninja and the proud owner of a major percentage of the partially finished crafts projects on the east coast of the continental United States. The handsome gentleman in the picture is Hoa Hakananai'a. He joined the collection of the British Museum in 1868. His name, which is thought to mean "stolen or hidden friend," was given to him by his previous owners when he was collected.

The Disloyal Opposition

By: Friday March 27, 2009 8:00 pm

Voice of America says that “As President Barack Obama makes his way through his first 100 days in office, Republicans are still trying to find their voice as the loyal opposition as they adjust to a new Democratic president and Democratic control of Congress.” Some of them, like Bobby Jindal, have decided disloyal pays off better.

NY-20: Siena Poll Shows Tedisco Four Points Behind

By: Friday March 27, 2009 11:28 am

In a poll taken before the Obama endorsement ad was released in the district, the Republican has fallen four points behind in a district with a 70+k registration advantage. Maybe trying to nationalize the election as a referendum on the stimulus package isn’t working out for them…

Panic! At Tedisco

By: Friday March 20, 2009 8:00 pm

In the latest episode of Assemblyman Tedisco: the voters or the people paying for the ads?, the Republican candidate for Sen. Gillibrand’s former seat swerved towards his would-be district and distanced himself from Rush Limbaugh. That lasted a few hours…

More NY-20: Mr. Tedisco Hits a Speed Bump

By: Tuesday March 17, 2009 5:15 pm

When last we saw Mr. Jim Tedisco, he was turning down help from the RNC because they were too negative for his district, and he wanted to run a kinder, gentler race. Only now, it’s starting to look as if what he really wants is to distance himself from the head of the RNC, one Michael Steele, who is, if you haven’t noticed, very unpopular with national Republicans, because his new friends aren’t very nice at all. . . .

Tedisco (NY-20) – Man of Steele?

By: Friday March 13, 2009 8:00 pm

Mr. Tedisco, the Republican who’s trying to get Sen. Gillibrand’s old seat, has a small problem. Not only is he polling way behind the Republican registration advantage in his district, it’s starting to look as if national Republicans want him to lose.

NY20: The Saga Continues

By: Friday March 6, 2009 8:00 pm

When last we met Mr. Tedisco, the Republican candidate for Sen. Gillibrand’s seat (in a district he doesn’t live in), he was refusing to say where he stood on the stimulus package. This week, he continued to refuse to say where he stands on the stimulus package. Happily, his guest, Mr. Giuliani, was less discreet.

NY-20 – the rebirth of Republicans?

By: Friday February 27, 2009 8:00 pm

Mr. Tedisco, of the State Assembly, is running on the Republican line for Sen. Gillibrand’s former seat. He’s got a rogue’s gallery of usual suspect Republican supporters, an ad campaign which carefully omits his party identification, and a few burgeoning scandals. If anyone’s still interested, there’s a NY congressional race that could use some attention.

The Essential Oversight

By: Friday February 20, 2009 8:01 pm

When the Republicans in Congress promise us oversight, they’re not kidding. They built a major oversight right into the stimulus bill.

Great Moments in Pocket-Lining: The Cantor Family Bailout

By: Wednesday February 18, 2009 9:05 am

Minority Whip Eric Cantor is disturbed by government bailouts. Nonetheless, he voted for the one which helped his wife’s company.

Mr. Boehner has a Tantrum

By: Friday February 13, 2009 8:10 pm

Oh, dear. Mr. Boehner’s all sad again, because the Democrats aren’t being respectful of the minority party, like a majority party should be. Badumpcha. Tip your waiters and try the veal.
