6. We were only freshmen (except that we are embroiled in legal battles) Two would-be senators-elect are making headlines today, Roland Burris (D-Illinois) and Al Franken (D-Minnesota). Al Franken (you might know him from the 1995 movie Stuart Saves his Family) won the Minnesota recount by 225 paltry votes! And we all know that Burris is Blago's new political pawn. But the Senate isn't going to seat either of them. Is it just me or is becoming one of the most useless-yet-entitled men in the country harder than *ever* these days?
5. Lobbing vs. pounding? NY Times joins the alpha men of CNN. Israel is strong and mighty. The Gazans are girly-men. And despite them both firing rockets at one another, the language used to describe them varies greatly. Compare this NY Times description of the impotent Gazan rockets to CNN's description of the vital man meat rockets of Israel.
4. On that same note, the New York Times relishes putting Nancy Pelosi down a peg or two. That darn Nancy Pelosi thinks she's so great. My favorite article quote: “She has been queen of her castle for quite a while now and the face of the Democratic Party, and I think she is going to want to continue to be at least the co-face as much as possible." The article also describes Pelosi's on Congress and how she has 'relished' being in command.
3. On the Gaza crisis: "Whose side is God on?" That was courtesy CNN's Rick Sanchez. Not that CNN is guilty of making false equivalencies or anything.
2. Fox News does a hard-hitting expose on the world's most Awesome Weapons Ever! To whet your appetite: "Modern conventional weapons, deadly as they are, have no monopoly on terrorizing soldiers and civilians. Many military innovations of the past scared the enemy senseless!" Thank you, modern equivalent of Woodward and Bernstein.
1. And finally: The 'Obama girls.' Because they are so gosh darn cute and the media refuses to present two equal viewpoints on the Obamas: Cute or Not Cute issue.
