Obama and the Frog
Drudge slayed me yesterday with this picture and the caption: “DYNAMIC DUO LEAD CHARGE ON IRAN.” . . . . Remember those health care upbeat stories I linked to last week, including the one about favorable polling figures? It looks like the polls have already gone back to pre-reform numbers: “Nearly two-thirds of Americans say the health care overhaul signed into law last week costs too much and expands the government’s role in health care too far, a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll finds.” Give NBC some time. They’ll come out with a favorable poll shortly. . . . The new middle-aged crisis outlet: Ironman contests. My brother-in-law did an ironman last year, and he frankly admitted it was a mid-life crisis of sorts. He told me, jokingly, “It’s either this or do something really stupid, like find a chick half my age or fly off to Tahiti. I figure this is far better for my wife and children.” I agree. I’m still waiting for my mid-life crisis. I’m 44 and the most-radical thing I’ve considered is giving up beer. . . . But that alcohol thing is off the table now. I think I have finally, after many false leads, found the source of my stomach problems: chronic dehydration. I simply haven’t been drinking enough water for the past few years. . . . Well, this will set us traditional conservatives back a little: “Dr Aubrey Levin, who in South Africa was known as Dr Shock for his use of electricity to ‘cure’ gay military conscripts, was arrested after a patient secretly filmed the psychiatrist allegedly making sexual advances.” Electric shock seems a little extreme, but hey, if I had the urge to [fill in the homo-erotic blank], they’d have my permission to light me up like a Christmas tree. . . . My digital friend Nick Milne published some concerns last week about B16’s response to Ireland. I haven’t read Nick’s piece carefully yet, but he’s awfully bright, a good stylist, and worth reading. . . . Related: Mary Kochan takes apart the New York Times most-recent anti-Catholic witch hunt.
