I think it could also be complete cynicism about politics. Why watch when it's same old same old and none of it will change your life. Not that Honey Boo Boo will.

With all this subtle textual and visual analysis, someone could mistake you for a liberal if you're not careful.

Who gives a rat's ass if Paul Ryan shaves? Shouldn't that be positive , that he's too busy to? Too busy to fact check too, but still too busy.

I'm sure the NYT always photoshops out the President's scruff and grey hair.

I honestly would never have noticed that he hadn't shaved in that pic. Maybe it's more obvious in print, but even now I have trouble seeing it.

The bigger issue with the photo for me is that he is so small in it, and looks almost sad. It was a poor choice of photo. Interestingly, the local version of the NYT used a much better photo.

Anderson Cooper looks so good. Love that tie.

I love the random people trying to dance. I can't dance either.

Why didn't they have Cory Booker in prime time?

GOP will get tons of mileage out of taking the word God out of the platform.

I thought that was a really great tribute to Ted Kennedy; I thought it was kind of ingenious to put the Kennedy/Romney debate footage in it.

Emotional stuff. It's too bad that he's gone.

The dream will never die. The dream lives on.

Really? I never heard that, always out of the loop on that.

He seems so smart, so personable.
Saves people from burning buildings. I like him.

Kennedy / Romney debates, that's some good stuff. Maybe they're on You Tube.

The two rumors I heard regarding his singleness:

1. He's dating a white woman. Could e problematic in areas of Newark.

2. He's gay, is on the soft DL, and therefor will never seek national office, at least in the foreseeable future.

But who knows? I want to live with hope.

Didn't he get into some trouble a while ago when he said something - I don't remember exactly, something about Wall Street I think - that Dems weren't happy about? I remember the guy being referred to as a 'traitor'.

He criticized Obama for something.

Why that's a problem I have no idea. I love that, honest fair criticism instead of forced blind loyalty.

I love that he has the you know what to do that.

How old is he? Too bad people make an issue of his single status. He's super cute.

Could see him running for POTUS . If he's gay well who cares. That would be a damn shame, if he couldn't because of that.

I looked it up to jog my memory:

Quote:
Booker generated controversy on May 12, 2012 when he appeared on Meet The Press as a surrogate for the re-election campaign of Barack Obama and made remarks which were critical of that campaign.[54] Booker stated the attacks on Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney's record at Bain Capital were "nauseating to me on both sides. It's nauseating to the American public. Enough is enough. Stop attacking private equity. Stop attacking Jeremiah Wright."[54] Some objected to Booker's remarks because Romney has made those claims about job creation at Bain central to his campaign. Others criticized Booker saying his comments were motivated by his closeness to and dependence on Wall Street donors. The comments were subsequently utilized by the Romney campaign against Obama.[55] Booker made followup comments clarifying that he now believed Obama's attacks on Romney's record at Bain were legitimate, but did not retract his point about attacking private equity in general.[56] Two weeks later, Booker's communications director Anne Torres tendered her resignation, although she maintained it was unrelated to Meet the Press.

He is 43-ish, I think. He's a Stanford grad who was on the football team, student body president, and also did a year at Oxford. He lives in a housing project in Newark and saves people from fires. I told Memphis that I would leave him for Booker and he agreed, he'd do the same.

HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius just came to the podium to Dire Straits' "The Walk of Life."

Wondering if there will be a bleep during this Rahm Emmanuel speech.
