From a blog I used to have called Otherpeoplesblogs.

Today there was a small twang of guilt for my flippant disregard for the SOTU last night, even if I was in good company.

The guilt only lasted until I read The New Republic’s article on The Outsiders. (via Killer Boots) Good to see we are now three months past the election and the DNC infighting is giving Dean the party leadership, and just a few clicks away TNR is already talking about Bush’s “lame duckness” already setting in.

Sure I have not read it since it’s release in 1992, but I think I am doing to dig up my copy of “Why Americans Hate Politics” and see how it reads 13 years later.

(Anyone read Whitman’s “It’s My Party Too” yet? Don’t you dare mention Zel Miller as a comparison in the comments.)

    The sheer length of that article should have given me ample indication as to how incredibly unnecessary this whole selection process is for the DNC chair. Who cares? Dems are now the least popular, least popULOUS party since my father and 3,000,000 other Americans voted for Ross Perot. We could have Genghis Khan leading the march on liberal issues and people still wouldn’t give a rat’s ass…

    Project Runway is pretty cool, though.

    Hello Bloggers! I am a second year graduate student at the University of Southern California’s Annenberg School for Communication in Los Angeles. For my masters thesis project, I am researching the uses and gratifications of bloggers – basically, why people go to blogs: for content gratifications (information/education/learning), social gratifications (interactions/chatting), or process gratifications (search engines/surfing).

    I would really appreciate your assistance with this project. Please take a minute to check out the survey link – http://surveymonkey.com/s.asp?u=73418829968. It takes less than 2 minutes! And feel free to pass it along to all the bloggers you know and/or post the link on your blogs.

    Thanks so much!
