Blog Credo

The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.

What More Is There To Say?

The most compelling story from last night's Superb Owl was not the game, which was a Fail Fest.

No, the most compelling story was the commercials.  And by commercials, I mean the one commercial that sent the Wingnutosphere into paroxysms of anger.

No doubt Fox News is working up a demand for an apology from Coke.  I hope Coke tells them to pound sand.  One of the interesting dynamics recently is how banks are trying to get people to refinance their homes with government programs and health insurance companies are working to get Americans to sign up for insurance via Obamacare.

Meanwhile, the GOP is trying to alienate everyone who isn't old, white or extracting hydrocarbons from the ground.
