Wes Anderson commercial

This ad initially appeared during the Super Bowl, but a Friend of mine just sent me the link from YouTube, so I had to post it. It's Wes Anderson's American Express commercial, and it's brilliant!

Money, money, money, money

All I can say is Carla Katz picked well when it came to the decision of who to fool around with. Since breaking it off with the then-U.S. Senator and soon-to-be Governor, Katz had her $470,000 home loan paid for, and now questions abound about Corzine's connection with the $1.1 millions condo in the Hudson Tea Building she just bought.

And let's not forget why she bought the condo; to have someplace to live while according to the Star-Ledger, $550,000 in work is being done to her house. All this on a $100,000 salary.

She reminds me of the guy in Goodfellas, when right after the crime had been committed, and the crew were all supposed to be on the lamb, in walks in this guy with a new fur coat, and a bright and shinny new Cadillac.

If I were Corzine, I would talk about it. I'd be pissed!

Any other suggestions for Bush?

It's cold in New Jersey

With spring less than 2 weeks away, it seems like Mother Nature is giving us a final F-U with this latest bout of cold weather and snow. I just booked a hotel for the Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington in April, and just clicking the "Pay Now" button seemed to warm me up, thinking about those blooming trees basking in the spring sun.

Then, I looked out the window.

A black cloud over Cheney?

Well, much to my surprise, Scooter Libby has been found guilty on four counts, including perjury and obstruction of justice. Frankly, I didn't think it would happen, because the deliberations of the Jury went on for so long.

And according to Patrick Fitzgerald, "There is a cloud over the vice president." According to the International Herald Tribune, Cheney faces a civil suit from Joseph Wilson, even as he's being questioned politically for possibly letting his former Chief of Staff become a "fall guy" for the administration.

It doesn't matter anyway. The National Review Online already has an editorial calling for Bush to pardon Libby. So even if the vice president found himself in somewhat murky waters, I'm sure his pawn would ride right up and pull him out.

God bless the USA!

Does Ann Coulter need discipline training?

Oh, Ann Coulter. how do people even take you seriously anymore? And it's not as if this is the first time we've traveled this road with her. On Hardball with Chris Matthews back in July of last year, Chris Matthews asked her, "How do you know that Bill Clinton is gay?" -- referring to her comment the night before on CNBC's The Big Idea that Clinton "show[s] some level of latent homosexuality." Coulter responded, "I don't know if he's gay. But Al Gore -- total fag." Here's a video from her speech given before the American Conservatve Union at the Political Action Conference that's gotten her back into all this heat:

If the Right is going to complain about the "left-wing media bias," shouldn't they also have credible sources of information from their side to support their views? Coulter? Limbaugh? Hannety? Come'on!
