Did you know Sen. Evan Bayh has a Flickr account? Only, huh, most of the pictures are of him. On the other hand, if you ever wanted to know what Ken and Barbie would look like at midlife, that’s the place to go.
(Which, by the way, should not be construed as a dig at Ken and Barbie. I’ve never talked to Ken, but Barbie herself — Susan — is an effortlessly charming woman. I’m just sayin’: Some things are obvious.)

my mother worked with the adult ed folks after her retirement as a teacher; she taught first grade for 17 years. she was invited to a thank-you luncheon with susan bayh as the speaker when her husband was the gov.
my mother, too, was charmed by mrs. bayh.
somewhat ot, but i saw her in an indy book store about one or two weeks she gave birth to her twins. she was in line a couple of folks ahead of me.
believe me, when the bible says great with child, i never truly knew what that meant until i saw her. she was BIG.
and as for ken-doll husband … one man who makes dick lugar look like james brown.
and btw, some judge in indy has decreed that a father and mother can’t teach his kid pagan/wiccan beliefs.
go to daily kos for the details.
fuckin’ indiana. and we’re four days away from a very overrated race.

I’m sorry. I know he’s a Democrat, and he’s progressive and all that, but I can’t look at those Bayh photos. They’re so perfect there’s a Speilbergian thing going on. A shark is going to jump out of the perfectly shaped shrubbery and eat one of the twins or something.
Derna derna derna derna (shark music).

old acquaintance of mine went to college with evan’s dad, birch. anybody remember him? (yes, we’re really, really old, and this acquaintance is even older.) friend had the same observation about bayh the elder: insufferably perfect, even as a callow youth. always impeccably dressed, always “on,” and already polishing his image — at the tender age of 18!

One of Evan’s opponents said it was so frustrating to debate him, or even talk to him, because he just didn’t seem to have a level beneath the Permanent Politician. “You get the feeling if you scratched his face, you’d see wires under the skin,” he said.
On the other hand, at least he’s not an evangelical right-wing butthead.
