Winner: Fact checkers. They've been in high demand and kept busy. I hope they're being paid per fact checked. Winner: Twitter. Once again, Twitter proved its relevance. Without Twitter, I would have thrown something at the TV or died from implosion, you know, all that screaming inside my head and my chest. Loser: All of [...]

My parents taught me well: never gloat. Never rub it in. So I will simply put these up with no comments added.             Now... In case you are worried that we are all going to get a big head and become complacent and start subscribing to this false belief of [...]

Can’t keep my mouth shut

Romney was asked to defend his position on gender equality at work place at the town hall "debate" tonight. Even though I enjoy the snarky tweets, in all fairness, here is what Romney said (excerpt from L.A. Times) Romney countered that, as governor of Massachusetts, he had a stellar record when it came to hiring [...]

I feel bad for Mitt Romney…

Kind of. For about 10 seconds. It's tough to be a politician nowadays what with the ever shrinking size of recording devices and of course, the Internet. Oftentimes in this hyper-connected, over-sharing, real-time-news-update-by-the-second, meme-obsessed world, WWW is the kingmaker. At the same time, it could also easily topple a career. (Ironically, the same world is [...]

I am back on! (I do suffer from bi-polar disorder so I was probably in a funk earlier today...) But no matter. Here is the 44th U.S. President, Barack Obama's inaugural speech. It reminded me why I was captivated by this man the first time I heard him speak on TV, and why I believed [...]

Sarah Hepola, thank you! Her humourous, yet sobering, look into the world of Obama-fever merchandising begins thus,"The other day, curious how far the Obama madness had spread, I Googled the words 'Obama sex toy.' God bless America: I was not disappointed..."Go straight to the slide show of some of the choice merchandise being sold if [...]

I am a liberal alright and a staunch Obama supporter. In fact, I am proud of the fact that I "called it" in 2004 before Obama gave that fateful speech at the Democratic Convention that launched him into the national spotlight. (And what's more, he wrote it himself!) I called it even before that: I [...]

Finally.  Dare I say "Finally"?  Al Franken finally was given enough evidence to declare victory, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune, based on a 225-vote lead.  Norm Coleman of course immediately indicated, "I am going to SUE!!!"  (Attaboy, like a good old American, that's what I'd do too!)    Please please, let Franken have the [...]

I am never one to abandon people when they are down in their luck. I do genuinely worry about people who enjoyed their 15-minute of fan and then never to be heard/seen again. I want the follow-up news, the updates. I want to make sure that they were not thrown over the wall like a [...]

Son: Hey, do you know the name of my cane?Us: No. What?Son: John McCain!(Confession: he was, for the longest time, pro-McCain. There, I said it. He actually cried over this several times pre-election day. His mind was set on McCain because he saw a lot of the commercials by the GOP camp during the 2008 [...]
