Friday Genius Ten “Fact-Checking And Self-Mocking With iTunes” Edition

Scott Lemieux talks about the ridiculous “what politicians have on their iPods” stories that are nothing but an excuse for journalists to push the same old Democrats-are-liberal-elite-and-corporate-ass-sucking-Republicans-are-secret-populists line, and I thought to myself, could the Genius function on iTunes actually help put a stop to some of the myths trotted…

Go ahead and enjoy fashion a little

Some fluffy Friday night Obamamania. I’m with the women at Broadsheet; I have mixed feelings about the focus on Michelle Obama as a style icon. On one hand, the whole thing smacks of the same old sexism that reduces women—even brilliant, ambitious, multi-faceted women like Michelle Obama—to decorative objects. But…

Kentucky, I know you can do better than this

This video, “Patriotic drunk rednecks“, is up on YouTube and, well, I just don’t know what to say except that this is an example of why Appalachia may never be fertile ground for Barack Obama voter base growth. And that’s despite the GOP f*cking over these working-class, ignorant voters year…

Time Magazine: Women Just Can’t Handle This “Woman” Thing

Feministing points us to this Time Magazine article theorizing that the reason “some women” don’t want to vote for Sarah Palin is because she’s pretty and confident risk-taking and, well, women just have problems with all of those things (the subtext being that women, of course, normally aren’t those things…

John McCain’s Rainbow Party

Periodically, when campaigns are feeling batshit insane, they pull out this “lipstick on a pig” thing. Let’s ignore the fact that it’s a ridiculously common idiom. Let’s ignore the fact that by the McCain camp’s standard, he called both Hillary Clinton and Mitt Romney pigs. Let’s even ignore that fact…

GAAAAAAAH

Lilly Ledbetter just gave a good speech at the Democratic Convention talking about equal pay and the distinction between Obama (good) and McCain (evil) on the issue. However, you wouldn’t know it by watching CNN, because they had to talk to Bob Casey about attacking McCain and what Hillary Clinton…

Stupid Is As Stupid Posts At The Corner

I’ll bet you weren’t aware that until Barack Obama’s quest for the presidency is over, Hillary Clinton actually owns the time 3:00 AM lock, stock and barrel. Anything that happens at 3:00 AM, from Taco Bell closing to your middle-of-the-night drink of water to someone’s car alarm going off? All…

Honest, Unvarnished Advice

Bill Kristol, he who believes that “white women are a problem”, laments the Democratic glass ceiling against Hillary Clinton. Kristol’s also wholeheartedly endorsed the Mark Penn strategy of fear, and has generally played the Democratic Party/Barack Obama’s concern troll since early 2007. The most prominent current pushers of the division…

DNS-ONE

As fun as it is to pore over what URLs mean as it regards Obama’s veep pick, this massively in-depth analysis misses one thing – a new veep site will go up at Obama’s current page. The Obama[Veep]08.com URL will just forward to the Obama homepage. There’s not even necessarily…

MoDo Explains It All…Or Some Of It…Well, None Of It, Really

Maureen, I was not aware that angry Hillary Clinton supporters equaled the body and full membership of feminism. I can’t even really explain the pointless turns to Amy Chozick’s “Obama’s too skinny” article or the relatively expanded exegesis on Obama as Mr. Darcy, except to say that Dowd honestly believes…
