Political chatter from DC and NYC, the amNewYork way
In a time when we should be zooming around in jet packs and wearing shiny clothing, we sure are seeing every kind of ism rear its ugly head in 2008. After Kerrys loss in 2004, nearly all Dems shook their fists in ire and vowed that next time around we would put up someone electable, unlike Kerry who was pegged as the Starbucks-drinking, windsurfing, French-speaking,...Read more »
An intriguing segment on ABC News discussed the differences between the front-runner presidential candidates official logo fonts and how they support campaign themes.
For example, Obama uses the font Gotham, a relatively young sans serif, based on the Port Authority sign perhaps in homage to his liberal elite reputation? Collins, a branding consultant, describes...Read more »
Ill go ahead and put it out there: Im a black woman.
There have been a couple of instances in life when Ive felt a sense of double discrimination. However, there have been innumerable occasions where Ive cringed on others behalf -- usually minorities and women. I think Marie Coccos Washington Post article is a bit biased and blind...Read more »
President Bush has been known for politicizing any event, be it a college commencement, anniversary of 9/11 or a state visit. Its no surprise that he injected himself into the 2008 election today by comparing those who believe we should negotiate with the terrorists and radicals to Hitler appeasers before World War II. This cannot be seen as anything but a swipe...Read more »
Bush sounds like he has a new speech writer. I was somewhat impressed by his history references in his speech to Israels Knesset on Thursday. I had to reread his statements a couple of times because they were rather stronger (and dare I say more intelligently presented -- word choice and usage, not content -- than most of the stuff he parrots). He came out strong,...Read more »
So I have this friend (no, no, its not me) who is a huge Doctor Who fan. She watched BBCs season three DVDs in about two weeks. (What a total sci-fi dork!) This friend also happens to be heavily invested in the primary elections.
Imagine her glee when she came across a chart listing all the past and present Doctor Whos and which presidential candidate would make his...Read more »
We get it. Sen. John McCain is old. (At 71, he's almost three times my age.)
But what I now think is getting old are jokes about presumptive Republican nominee being old. So what of this picture?
And what of a blog that every day lists something that's younger than McCain (Velcro, the shopping cart, Nylon)?

First the "American Idol" finale, and now Sen. John McCain goes green by rolling out his new line of eco-friendly campaign apparel mostly made of bamboo, a renewable resource, and cotton blends, as seen on Drudge. Many pundits rebuff this and other recent acts as a ploy to woo environmentalists from the left to reconsider McCain as their presidential candidate.

MSNBC and CNN are both reporting that Sen. John Edwards will endorse Obama tonight at a campaign event in Michigan.
Never thought I'd see that happen. Guess who'll be glued to her TV tonight!

Edwards today announced his official endorsement of Obama for president.
I wonder if those $400 haircut rumors will help or hurt Obama's "elitist" image. Sigh.
