ugly national review columnist even uglier on the inside. parts 1 & 2. i guess this is a beltway buzzer. i picked up on it from howie kurtz. with so much bill and hill bashing who can make a splash with their anti-clinton venom these days? hey lets jump on chelsea. shes 21 and thusly fair game. can you believe she had the audacity to speak up at a state dinner? can you believe she said when she went to college that she wanted to be a doctor and now plans on studying economics at oxford? we know all about oxford dont we? thats where that draftdodgin potsmokin scumbag actually had the temerity to protest the war. did i mention she may not be that attractive? now, jenna bush...what, shes only 18? ok, i can wait. i wonder if she likes dessicated old scarecrows?
third worlds a charm
the majority controls the subpoena power in congress which is why we see only democratic "scandals" investigated these days.

another reasonably average mindlessly blissless day shot to hell by the specter of impending bad news. had a small horde of chinese businessmen and women circling my apartment like ravenous buzzards eyeing a choice decaying morsel. you know its trouble when theyve got the tape measure out. and now that we are leaseless, its just one word and we are gone. looks like its time to draft the plan of last resort before i start crying about having to move again. did i mention i hate people?

love that song in the new michael jordan ad. did a little research. turns out to be mos defs 'umi says'. you can download a clip here or napsterize before its too late. but i just saw another nike ad for the firsttime -- the nba stomp. it seems like a major theme in the nike campaign are these strange open empty echo inducing soundstages with monochromatic colors and minimal props. and they all have a playful comedic sensibility. oh yeah, and kobe byrant is becoming the next michael jordan of commercials. he representing three or four companies. off the top of my head i can think of mcdonalds, adidas and spalding. shouldnt be long before hes doing a charles schwab ad talking about asset reallocation with anna kournikova. the last word...is "the answer." thats the reigning nickname for this years breakout nba star allen iverson. the nba has decided that despite the tats cornrows rap albums and attitude its impossible to ignore his talent so theyve finally begun to marketing him. last year it was time to embrace vinsanity, this year the only intelligent choice is AI.
