Michelle’s Bangs…

I love Michelle Obama.  She is beautiful, worldly and inspiring.  But I don’t love her new bangs.

Before the hate mail starts pouring in, let me say right up front that I have had bangs my entire life.  So I started thinking why do her bangs seem so wrong to me?

I have here for your consideration an assortment of hairstyles that I would like to see her consider as alternatives — and we’d like your vote, too.  … [Read more]

Republicans: Feeding at the Public Trough

In critiquing First Lady Michelle Obama’s convention speech, the arm of the GOP named, facetiously, Fox “News,” was caught a little flat-footed:  She didn’t (overtly, anyway) disparage Romney, didn’t give them anything much to take out of context and run with, and delivered her speech with charm, warmth, grace and skill. So what’s a body on Fox to do when propping up the GOP (and, in particular, its dismal presidential candidate) is one’s reason for living – and the Dems refused to offer them any real fodder?… [Read more]

Fired up and ready to go!

And here’s the biggest difference between the Democratic National Convention (DNC) and last week’s Republican National Convention (RNC): Other than the obvious racial, religious and ethnic diversity of the audience, Day 1 was energetic and hopeful — and it focused on the American people, not the speakers who, at the RNC, appeared to be priming themselves for their own presidential bids.… [Read more]

Goodbye Herman Cain, I Shall Miss You!

Your 15 minutes of political fame as the black guy who almost became the anything-but-Romney-choice for the Tea Party are just about up.  It has been a bizarre horse race up until now — but I’m pretty sure Herman Cain, while still in the race for the Tea Party-backed nomination (hereafter referred to as TeaPublican), is not going to remain a top contender.… [Read more]
