Finally functioning on full power after Sandy, which is more than I can say for my parents and relatives in Connecticut and New York. Let’s let the polls speak for us tomorrow when we get to…gauge responsiveness, shall we say. Speaking of which: tomorrow’s officially Election Day! I’ll be down at Democracy Plaza at 30 Rock, and I hope NYers come by and check it out. Even if you don’t DON’T FORGET TO VOTE!!! Let’s move downward, shall we?
Before anyone gets too excited, no, this is not a Springsteen/Kid Rock festival of actual political commentary, but rather a small playlist commemorating which songs best fit which political figures in this election season. Feel free to post agree/disagree, but don’t forget: if you can’t say anything nice…you’re probably already an internet commenter and the point is moot. Jam on!
This week has been nuts for nuts, since it’s almost Halloween and so everything is now revolving around costumes. Let’s just say there have been duct tape dresses, beanies, cat and pig ears and wigs…and we’re still a week and a half out from Halloween. But other things are apparently happening too! Moving on!
Last week, Joe Scarborough finally broke on Morning Joe. He yelled “OH SWEET JESUS” and covered his face in response to clip of Mitt Romney trying to start a “ROMNEY! RYAN!” cheer at a rally. This is the same reaction that Republicans have assuredly been having over the last 3 weeks. Since the moment that Mother Jones leaked the “47%” video, the Romney campaign has been playing extreme defense. This month, he’s making make a final push to get people to like (and vote for) the Romneytron 2000.
