If you do Buster, please do the post-seal-bite Buster. And please take pics. And you have to talk about how your mom’s “still got it” all night.
I didn’t realize how many ideas you could come up from Arrested Development… it’s really absurd. Calls for a theme party, in fact. I won’t hold it so close to Halloween, but it’s definitely something I’ll keep in mind.

Maude Lebowski in the Gutterballs sequence, or sexy shark attack?
Sexy Shark Attack. You’re in the right hemisphere for it.
- Craig: Palin said if she and husband Todd had had a sixth child, they had already picked a name for a boy joining siblings Track, Bristol, Willow, Piper and Trig.
- "I always wanted a son named Zamboni," she said.
- me: NO
- THIS IS A PARODY

- me: I have to assume that was a joke on her part
- Craig: one would hope
- me: If only the Washington Post used proper typographic formatting

But in a tense exchange with Representative Henry A. Waxman, the California Democrat who is chairman of the committee, Mr. Greenspan conceded a more serious flaw in his own philosophy that unfettered free markets sit at the root of a superior economy.
“I made a mistake in presuming that the self-interests of organizations, specifically banks and others, were such as that they were best capable of protecting their own shareholders and their equity in the firms,” Mr. Greenspan said.
Referring to his free-market ideology, Mr. Greenspan added: “I have found a flaw. I don’t know how significant or permanent it is. But I have been very distressed by that fact.”
Mr. Waxman pressed the former Fed chair to clarify his words. “In other words, you found that your view of the world, your ideology, was not right, it was not working,” Mr. Waxman said.
“Absolutely, precisely,” Mr. Greenspan replied. “You know, that’s precisely the reason I was shocked, because I have been going for 40 years or more with very considerable evidence that it was working exceptionally well.”” —Greenspan Concedes Error on Regulation - NYTimes.com
I’ve done two of these! (3 and 4.) I endorse 1 and 2. I’d substitute “Swim with a whale” for #5.
When I speak about Britney’s rehabilitation, I’m not just referring to her well-publicized efforts to turn around a half-decade of tabloid-level personal breakdown. I’m also referring to her surprisingly checkered U.S. chart history. Indeed, the first question some of you might be asking yourselves is, How is this only her second No. 1 hit?
The short answer: she’s arguably gotten screwed by the refs. To a chart geek like me, Spears comes off as a victim of a decade of erratic industry practices and radical shifts in Hot 100 chart rules.” —
Great piece by Chris Molanphy on the chart career of Britney Spears. Recommended if you give a shit about pop music and/or the charts.
Stay classy, Jay-Z!
…aaaaand read the post to see what he suggests. It all sounds pretty good to me. Now is not the time for the standard Democratic Party pet causes, I’m sad to say; now is the time to create some new ones, like green jobs and tech manufacturing and a new energy-efficient national infrastructure, like better roads and a 21st-century power grid. If we’re going to pour taxpayer money straight into the economy — and it’s clear we need to, that’s the government’s role in a recession, to do the spending that the private sector cannot — that’s where it needs to get spent, not on the same old social-justice stuff.
So yes, please do have a laugh at the most overwritten children’s book review of all time. But the real message here is: my friend Mark’s first-ever published book already pulled a starred review in Publisher’s Weekly! Nice job, Jonesy. I’m stupid proud of you.
Ben LaBolt, a spokesman for the Obama campaign, highlighted the more than 2.5 million donors it had to wade through. “We have been aggressive about taking every available step,” he said, “to make sure our contributions are appropriate, updating our systems when necessary.”
But even a contributor who used the name “Jgtj Jfggjjfgj,” and listed an address of “thjtrj” in “gjtjtjtjtjtjr, AP,” was able to contribute $370 in a series of $10 donations in August.
A pair of donors named “Derty West” and “Derty Poiiuy,” who listed “rewq, ME” as their addresses and “Qwertyyy” or “Qwerttyyu” as either their employer or occupation, contributed a combined $1,110 in July.” —
Oh come ON, Obama campaign. This is bullshit. Don’t tell me you couldn’t have been screening out this kind of thing. This is the last kind of story the campaign needs rattling around in the final days of the election. I *strongly* suggest a large and aggressive purge of your cash on hand to fully refund anything that even sort of smells — and do it FAST, before this story grows legs. Believe me, you can afford to give some of this cash up. And I promise you, if you do, I’ll throw you some more legit money of my own.
