Re: Recently viewed films

I also saw Slumdog Millionaire yesterday and absolutely loved it. Although I'd obviously heard of the film quite a bit with all the award nominations, I honestly hadn't heard anything specific about it. I think that really enhanced my enjoyment. The story was original, the stylization was great, an...

And the experience issue is forced front and center. Excuse me, but how do you reckon? The "experience" card was one of McCain's big weapons and now he's gone and chosen someone as his VP nominee whose credentials are questionable, to say the least. If anything, his choice of Palin takes ...

Re: The Politics of Politics: The Ride of a Lifetime

McCain picked Sarah Palin for VP. Very smart and calculated move. There are enough still-pissed-off Hilary supporters out there that could be drawn to her, despite her ultra-conservative tendencies. This will be an interesting election, but I think with this pick McCain has a lock on it. Here is a ...

Whether you agree or disagree with his conclusions, it's clear that he's done a lot of thinking about the topics, on his own, and not based on papers or thinking done by others.

Credibility of both candidates is lacking, so it is up to the 'handlers' to position the celebrities. There is little reliable substance in either.
