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.

RNC Chair Steele Evolves on Trusting Criminals

By: Monday February 9, 2009 6:10 pm

Michael Steele says that we should ignore allegations about his campaign spending because they come from a convicted criminal. So did a few of his high-profile endorsements.

Nerve of Steele

By: Friday February 6, 2009 8:00 pm

Newly-named RNC Chair Michael Steele says he’s going to make the GOP competitive in the, how shall I put this, less monochromatic territory of the northeast. It seems unlikely.

Obama vs. Rush?

By: Friday January 30, 2009 8:00 pm

Well, some people, including the folks voting for RNC chair, think so. That’s why the guy who tied his fate to Rush dropped out.

Why people keep hiring Bill Kristol – and why they keep firing him.

‘Cause the (Inaugural) Bible Tells Me So

By: Friday January 23, 2009 8:00 pm

So, if you blinked yesterday, you probably missed the ginormous fuss over President Obama’s do-over of the oath of office. Apparently, in the rush to conciliate people who didn’t realize that he became president automatically at noon while the quartet was-or-wasn’t playing, the Obama family didn’t have time to dig their bible out of their luggage. The missing Bible, the hostile justice, the screwed-up oath? Not the first time.

Slaves—men of West African origin branded with Christian monikers like Tom, Peter, Ben, Harry, and Daniel—helped build the White House. Three were on loan from its chief architect, James Hoban. Construction began in 1792, and slaves worked as sawyers, quarrymen, carpenters, stonemasons, brickmakers. Such was the fabric of the new republic:

Inaugural Nonsense on the Right

By: Monday January 19, 2009 11:25 am

The problem with PEBO’s inaugural festivities for the usual suspects is, of course, that he’s having them at all. That battle being convincingly lost, our friends on the right are becoming increasingly desperate to find something the rest of us will object to.

Today, on As the Senate Appointment Turns

By: Friday January 16, 2009 8:00 pm

Reports that Governor Paterson is determined to appoint Caroline Kennedy to Senator Clinton’s seat may be a bit exaggerated.

Civil Wrongs in the Bush DOJ

By: Wednesday January 14, 2009 11:39 am

Remember Brad Schlozman, Bush’s dubious head of the Justice Department Civil Rights division? According to the Department’s Inspector General, he broke the law making personnel decisions for political reasons. Then he lied to Congress about it.
