    The problem with Obama is that he woefully miscalculated – thinking pandering to the republicans would start off a new era of bipartisan cooperation… big mistake. I’m terribly disappointed and disillusioned…. however, NOT to the point of giving the reigns of power to the fricken’ hypocritical republican wingnuts! That said, Obama – please pay attention and do what YOUR base wants going forward!

    This is silly, but ever since watching Top Gun as a very young guy (when I didn’t realise how bad movie it was, I just found the guys hot and wanted to have a scene with wet TC) I’ve found Tom Cruise attractive. (Even though I really don’t agree with his views on almost anything.)

    “New York Times columnist David Brooks uses lamentable language to express his lament over California’s state of political affairs”

    1. Repeal Prop 13 NOW, it’s been a disaster
    2. Remove the rule that a 2/3 supermajority is needed to pass legislation, return it to a simple majority

    Gwyneth Paltrow on Glee. Hmm. Well, since no one on that show can sing, what difference does it make if Ms. Paltrow can or can’t sing? And please – that bullshit with Huey Lewis ? Give me a break.

    The Gwyneth/Huey Lewis duet was from that karaoke movie she did. She also did “Bette Davis Eyes” as well as a nice duet with Babyface of “Just My Imagination.”

    She sang backup with Sheryl Crow on one of her songs, too, I think it’s “It’s Only Love.”

    It really is a shame that they autotune people who can sing on that show the way they do.

    Obama lectures LGBTs on what’s “irresponsible”?

    You know what’s really irresponsible? Squandering historic Democratic House and Senate majorities to do almost nothing, on even your signature Health Care bill.

    This man’s arrogance infuriates me. If he’s trying to win votes for his Democrats in Congress, this isn’t the way to do it.
