No Rain, No Rainbow

In case you didn't know it, Sarah Palin is the Rod McKuen of her generation.
Just listen to William Shatner's dramatic reading of her Twitters.

Today's Bitter Irony

I'd really like to see this movie -- Soul Power -- it's a documentary of a concert in Africa in the 60s with a bunch of R&B acts like James Brown, as well as Miram Makeba, who was one of the first African performers to make an impression in the U.S. in the 60s.

So I went to to use their movie searching tool. I typed in Soul Power, my zip code -- 22101 -- and here's what showed up. I am not joking.

The McLean Family Restaurant

which is probably one of the whitest places on the face of the earth. At least on the East Coast. And I'm pretty sure James Brown never performed there.

Mark Sanford -- STFU

As much as I enjoy watching Mark Sanford go down in flames, what I'm not liking is what he's forcing his wife to have to listen to. That his Argentinian girlfriend was his "soul-mate." That it was a "love-story." That now he's going to have to "try to fall in love with my wife again."

Mark Sanford, what the hell is wrong with you?

And the thing is, I just discovered today, he's an Episcopalian. One of our own.

Come on. Dude! Show some class.
