An Aimlessly Didactic Season of Mad Men at Least Ends With One Important Moral Lesson. When you inexplicably decide to go to Yale after entrancing us with three delightful seasons of watching you try to get into college, you WILL end up a Stepford Wife on the New Canaan Metro-North Line, sneaking off for a final tryst at the Hotel Pennsylvania (!) with Pete Campbell before your husband sends you away for yet another round of electroshock treatment.

Just watched ‘Game Changer’ again…

Another point of sympathy…Sarah’s ignorance to the idea that the British queen reigns, but doesn’t rule, seems to be less a fatal intellectual confusion on her part than a fatal constitutional one on theirs. 

Why, in the end and despite all evidence to the contrary, our team has won after all….

AFP:

"I would like to offer a large apology" to those who were injured or killed in the bombing of an Oslo government building as they were just passing by and had no political connections, he said.

But when prosecutor Inga Bejer Engh asked if he wanted to say the same to any of the 69 people - mainly teens - slaughtered in his shooting massacre on the nearby island of Utoya after the bombing, Breivik said: “No, I do not.”

He reiterated that youngsters attending a summer camp hosted by the ruling Labour Party’s youth wing were “legitimate targets”, as “political activists” working for the “deconstruction of Norwegian society” through the multiculturalism he insists is leading to a “Muslim invasion” of the country.

Because, of course, if there still in fact existed people who actually believe in the timeless ipso facto good of traditional phallogoeurocentric judeochristian culture, the obvious word to use there would be simply “destruction.” But everyone knows that everything is, like, constructed, dude—thus only one way to take it apart.

Former conservative French President Jacques Chirac and a number of his family members will vote for Socialist Party candidate Francois Hollande in the forthcoming presidential election, according to media reports Tuesday.

According to daily newspaper Le Parisien, Chirac’s daughter Claude, her husband Frederic Salat-Baroux and her former husband Thierry Rey have all said they will vote for Hollande in the first round of the vote on April 22.

New York Magazine in my head.

I just received the ‘Second Annual Yesteryear Issue’ in the mail. (The former resident has still yet to move her subscription! What is wrong with her?!) It’s on ‘Three Centuries of New York SCANDAL!’ I think it would have been closer to the spirit of the exercise to have just put the 2011 Yesteryear Issue back on the newsstands. Is that what this is?!

Why didn’t he think of this earlier?

Barack Obama’s calling the House budget proposal “thinly veiled social Darwinism.” What a great, underutilized term for the modern hoi polloi! Who cares what he’s talking about, it sounds like socialism for apes…and can Republicans really deny being social Darwinists?
