A very important post about.... things I will not miss while I am away
Your humble blogger is getting the hell out of Dodge for the rest of 2007 and the beginning of 2008. Blogging will be nonexistent for the next 36 hours, followed by ten days of, at best,
Since it is the end of the year and I will be out of the country, here is a short list of things I will not be missing while I am gone:
1) Paul Krugman's jihad against Barack Obama. As an outsider to progressive infighting, this was fun for a few go-arounds, but we've now hit the tedious patch when Krugman spends every column and blog post searching desperately for something to dump on Obama. This is Krugman at his most humorless and least persuasive.

Krugman was standing with his nose pressed against the window wishing he could get in during the last Clinton Administration, because he hadn't carried water for Bill. He is eager not to make the same mistake again. Will it work? Who knows.posted by: dave.s. on 12.25.07 at 07:59 AM [permalink]
Oh, the answer to question #3 is clearly Juno. I laughed more at Juno than Knocked Up (heck, I thought Superbad was vastly better than the latter), although some of that may be just due to waiting to see Knocked Up on DVD.posted by: Chris Lawrence on 12.25.07 at 07:59 AM [permalink]
Hey Danny, I just discovered your blog some 15 minutes ago or so and I like it. I hardly ever show up simply to complement a blogger but I appreciate the blog so you're worthy of the accolades.
The hype around Miss Spears is shameful. Since when are actors responsible for being the character they play on screen? And let's not assume that every 16-year-old mother is going to be irresponsible. Really, who is out there castigating the young man?posted by: Charli Carpenter on 12.25.07 at 07:59 AM [permalink]
