    CotW: rep. anh "joseph" cao of louisiana.

    I’m finally resurrecting CotW and this week’s crush is Representative Anh “Joseph” Cao (pronounced “Gow”), the freshman Republican representative from Louisiana. Crushable why? Because he broke ranks with his political party to vote in favor of the Democratic health care legislation — a refreshing move in the world of divisive partisan politics. Educated by Jesuits […]

    happy links friday: SUPERSIZED EDITION.

    The economy might be down, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t be “up” — why? Because it’s Friday!

    72 hours away.

    Election ’08 in 2:30 minutes. I especially appreciate the 24-esque countdown beeps at the end.

    $150,000. So what?

    Last week, news broke that the GOP spent more than $150,000 on VP nom Sarah Palin’s wardrobe. Sartorially-prepping the Alaska governor for selling herself as an everyday American, so it seems, meant dropping $150 G’s on designer labels bought at Saks Fifth Avenue, among other places. So, what’s the big deal?  As someone who also […]
