The President Speaks

The President’s speech to school kids was fantastic… though probably boring to the older kids.

The hatriots did their best to demonize President Obama.  I hope sane people remember the ludicrous charges flung by the right, and recognize how little anything the racist/right says is based in any truth. Meanwhile, the President was asked about growing up without a father, from a kid whose parents divorced.

He’s not a demon, he’s a man doing the best he can despite the interference from the illiterates who (predictably) kept their kids out of school.

Why Did Ambien Change the Rooster Commercial?

I was watching tv the other day and noticed when the Ambien CR commercial, with the rooster, came on it was a different rooster more emaciated and less attractive actress but basically the same commercial. I wonder why they changed.

So I’m crusin’ Twitter (not that I’m a subscriber – it’s a long story) and I notice all these references to Dr. Horrible. My search for it, eventually got me to the Dr. Horrible website. What a treat!!! It’s from Joss Whedon, who created Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly. It’s starring Neil Patrick Harris and others you know.

What we have here is a pure Internet show. It’s not on TV (but it is TV). It’s not theater (but it is theater – in the Little Shop of Horrors genre). Please, please go to the website to see the episodes, but for those of you who need to see a sample first, here’s the preview:

Giants vs. McCain

Since 2002, the NFL has held its season opener on the first Thursday night after Labor Day. This year, the game runs smack into the final night of the convention, when McCain will officially accept the nomination and give a nationally televised speech from Minneapolis.

From Yahoo News:

Since 2002, the NFL has held its season opener on the
first Thursday night after Labor Day. This year, the game runs smack
into the final night of the convention, when McCain will officially
accept the nomination and give a nationally televised speech from
Minneapolis.

While the NFL has yet to announce its schedule for the 2008 season,
it’s apparently not going to shy away from having its season opener on
the scheduled day, with the game likely featuring the Super Bowl
champion New York Giants.

So, the NFL and NBC have agreed in principle to have the kickoff at
7 p.m. ET instead of the traditional 8:30 p.m. That would mean, except
in the event of an overtime, that the game would end before NBC’s
expected one hour of convention coverage for the night.

Unbelievable.
