No Going Back

Michelle Obama:
Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your cynicism. That you put down your divisions. That you come out of your isolation, that you move out of your comfort zones. That you push yourselves to be better. And that you engage. Barack will never allow you to go back to your lives as usual, uninvolved, uninformed.
My comfort zone
Is my own.

Leave it alone.

Lobbyist Qua Blonde

So is this "blonde lobbyist" story bad for McCain... or good? 

Since the Times went public without anything solid - assuming they don't have more - does McCain just gain sympathy as a victim of a smear?

Be careful of making attacks
With airy gossipy facts.

The Daily Guilt Trip

Blogoloquaciousness challenges Chicago's daily guilt trip:
Now let's return to the not-so-glamorous, yet brilliant, marketing campaign the homeless man was taking part in. His catch phrase was a question, "Help the homeless today, sir?" This synecdochical phrasing leads you to believe that there is such a thing as an entity called "The Homeless." Perhaps they are a "community?" I'm not sure, but what we are told is that by giving this man our money, we are helping "The Homeless."
When I was a kid, they were just called bums.
This is the way that progress comes.
