1. In the post below I mentioned Michelle Obama’s hyperbolic warning that under an MesmerO administration, we’ll all be required to “shed our cynicism.” (The phrase triggers an image of aÂ bunch of snakes molting their skins.)
Today Mark Steyn mentions that the whole concept of compulsory cynicism shedding reminds him of this old Dilbert cartoon:

2. I predicted way back in this post that as soon as it was clear that John McCain had the Republican nomination sewn up, the mainstream media which has been so friendly to him would turn on him with a vengeance. Of course, that happenedÂ today. Not thatÂ theÂ development was allÂ that hard to predict.Â
It was about as risky as prognosticating that Chris Matthews will soonÂ be an obnoxious cheerleader for the Democrats. Which leads me to my third point.
3. Because I don’t have enough to do, I’ve launched yet another blog.Â At www.chrismatthewsleg.com I will be chronicling the life and times of Chris Matthews’ Leg . . . whatÂ thrills it, whatÂ repulses it, and what hacks it off. (Not “hacks it off” in the literal machete-weildingÂ sense of the term, of course.)
I don’t know how long-lived it will be but I’m having fun with it for the time being.
