Hillary is soooo just like us!

Um, I can't help it, I'm posting the clip of Hillary attempting to get herself a cup of coffee. It's kinda awesome.

Addicted to Scrabulous

Yes. I've succumbed. That's where I've been. Scrabble on Facebook. It's amazing and all-consuming. I'm entering rehab and will hopefully be back to blogging by the time John McCain is president. Talk soon.

Viral Video of The Week err make that Month

This is what Viral Marketing is made of. The above video is amateur camcorder footage of Kobe Bryant Jumping over a speeding Aston Martin. It's obviously not real, but a really smart marketing campaign by Nike for a new shoe. And my boy Ronny Turiaf is in it for added effect. A quick search of the net yields a bevy of reactions. Some calling the campaign breakthrough and genius. Others saying the video is stupid. And some calling it irresponsible because of how dangerous the stunt is. Well, I think it's awesome. It's a perfectly crafted short that starts with two pro athletes on the roof of a building, arguing over whether Kobe is going to get hurt. He then starts throwing his new Nikes on as he talks to the camera. In such a short time, they build a nice bit of anticipation and then they slam right into the great looking "stunt." Hands down, the best viral marketing video in a while. Check it out.

McCain is Mean

According to the forthcoming book 'The Real McCain' by Cliff Schecter, while out on the campaign trail, good ol' Johnny McCain called his wife Cindy a (C)ute and (U)nusually (N)aive (T)art. But you know...without using the word Tart.

I'd pay 5 bucks for audio of this one, but unfortunately its not available, so this little clip on the story will have to suffice - it includes the full quote. But, don't worry you Maverick McCain fans out there, at least this stays in line with his know, he rides the 'straight talk express' and...well, it doesn't get much straighter than this outburst. ha.

Trollop: (Noun)
1. an immoral or promiscuous woman, esp. a prostitute.
2. an untidy or slovenly woman; slattern

Fine, yes, this was a Senatorial campaign years ago, but still, its an awesomely funny anecdote.

Red Phone is new Obama Girl

Hillary Clinton has released a new Red Phone video, this time going after John McCain for his policy of not wanting the government to bail out individuals who made poor personal investment choices. Does anyone else find it ironic that Hillary Clinton is hearkening back to anti-communist cold war imagery to promote her commitment to socialism? I mean I get it, the government shouldn't have promoted low income home ownership in the first place and you can't unring a bell and people will be stupid and greedy and buy things they can't afford nor understand and the government helped create this mess and should maybe help clean it up and yada yada yada... But if Hillary was president during the Enron implosion, would she have proposed bailing out individuals who put all their eggs in the Enron basket? I dunno. Sometimes I think things.
