Don’t look there.

Really. Don’t look where you want to look. Look at her feet. That woman must be a hell of an actress, because I can tell you, those dogs are barkin’ but she doesn’t let you know.

    From the looks of that big, purplish bunion it’s quite possible she doesn’t have any feeling left down there.

    I always heard it was hard to carry boobs like that, but I didn’t know it would splay your feet.

    Alex actually got to my line first. I was originally going with “Them giant onions’ll give ya the bunions”.

    HA! that toe is positively scary. she is a goddess in that dress, though. that does NOT look like a rachel zoe production, need i say.

  6. brian stouder said on September 22, 2008 at 5:28 pm

    What feet?

  7. nancy said on September 22, 2008 at 5:46 pm

    That’s a great color on a redhead. That, and black.

    Rachel Zoe is a plague upon the land. I watched the first episode of her show and thought I would faint from boredom and irritation. It was like being stuck in a middle-school girls’ room for an hour.

    She has feet? Where?

  9. Colleen said on September 22, 2008 at 6:10 pm

    Yikes. Her big toe looks like a thumb. Guh Ross.

    I have a friend whose feet are perfect triangles. The only shoes she can wear are those rubber aqua shoes.

    This Mary Tyler Moore item? We saw it coming. Why should Mary Richards give a shit about anything but Joker makeup and a Jack Nicholson brestionnaire when Phyllis walks with the living dead? So dressing absurdly in domino may make sense. Was it really any worse than poncho and flung tam?

    We saw this coming. Couple days ago, the Red Carpet michigass sneaked through my filters and my love won’t let me use the mute. (The TV program channel brought to us by Time Warner out of the goodness of their adamantine corporate oxygen pumps demands attention to Botox bimbos and Joey Fat One, and Sharlie has got to hear what they’re saying, the better to sink her sardonic teeth into like Dorothy Parker. She‘s funny off her meds and acquiescence beats an argument every time.)

    So anyway, one of those trout-lips says here’s Cloris Leachman. Okay, I think, she’ll make a mockery. But they ask her about Dancing With the Stars. Holy crap, seems she’s a contestant. Nobody asks her who she’s wearing. She appears to be shorter than Madeleine Albright, and looks like a dead ringer for Billy Crystal as Miracle Max. Horror rises like bile, and these harpies treat her as an insane vestige of a once-fine actress.

    So Cloris exudes dysphoria and her lack of balance and I want this to end. And talks about wetting her pants doing the first number, and I’m looking for sarcasm, but she’s vacant. She discusses adult diapers. Surely Lars is still Nordic man enough to forestall this ignominy. No relief in sight, and I think Sharlie went off her medicine, because she‘s got nothing vituperative to say.

    Just saying, if Mary saw this, she may have thrown vanity to the wind. What the hell does she care? Mary and Phyllis and Rhoda, it’s not Danny and Peachy but it’s close to Butch and Sundance, which wasn‘t close to Danny and Peachy either. I’m forever surprised and disappointed by cattiness, and still find it funny. I think, to my chagrin, that Cathy Ggriffin is funny, sometimes. Upper arm wattles? Shit, it’s her world, she was a spectacular talent, now she’s old. Her best friend is paraded like the blind elephant, and if she wants to wear a dress with no sleeves, y’all are being catty and self-referential.

    My pard who’s heading to 50 but still looks a perpetual 39, she’s not talking on this subject, except to say it wasn’t the sleeves, it was the rose. We saw Dracula with the Edward Gorey staging, way back in the 70’s. Everything black and white. Mary’s 72.and in full possession of her faculties There with the grace of God you might go. This idea about sleeves sounds like Burka to me. Exactly whose standards is she failing to meet.?

    Michelle Obama has been criticized aboutsleeveless dresses. She seems toned like Tweetee. (If you don’t know who that is, she’s a born assassin named Deanna Nolan that plays for the Detroit Shock in the captivating WNBA. If you think you’re a sports fan and don’t follow the WNBA, you’re a poseur.

    We’re a household sort of divided. Sharlie loves the Shock. Me? That jerk Laimbeer traded Tasha Humphrey, and when the Chief cold-cocked his cheating ass, it was the finest NBA moment since Havlicek stole the ball.

    Sports fanaticism. I know for a fact that Frenchy Fuqua deflected the ball on the Immaculate Reception. I used to despise the Steelers for this. Now I love the Steelers because Hines Ward is the smiling face of that team. And because he plays con brio and blocks better downfield than any receiver in the history of the NFL. Pats this week? Smallest violin in the world. Is it elitism that so many of these opinions are based on alma maters? The two best players on the Pats are Ben Watson and Richard Seymour. I want them t do wel, I want the Pats to be humiliated.

    Zombie movie? If it’s set in Detroit, there’s got to be a place for Human Being Lawn-Mower. I always thought the song was about Fahrenheit 451. If a potential president thinks books should be banned, shouldn’t that be a deal breaker?

    But, if people want to knuckle under to Cheney’s energy tea party, and creeps get to install unitary presidency because Cheney thought Nixon was treated poorly, who’s anybody to object?

    NancyNall participants seem fairly informed. Does anybody believe W didn’t bolt and Kerry saved crewmates under fire at risk of his life?

    Republicans committed crimes to steal the last two presidential elections. Their campaign didn’t just make Lee Atwater roll over, it made him puke and drown in his effluvia.

    Where do these assholes get off? WP takes exception to Obama’s characterization of McCain’s stance as 100 years of war. How is that an exaggeration? If we sray, there will be retalition. That would seem fairly obvious to anybody that understood the difference between Sunni and Shia an US hegemony. They’re modus operandi was based in abject racism. Prevent black people from voting, Somebodyt want to tell me that’s not what these bastards did.

    The idea that Kerry was somehow lacking is so lame it’s infuriating. He won and the Republicans and Diebold did what they could to usher in the nitwit. McCain claims credit for everything Kerry accomplished. He vanished and let Kerry take the heat,. On MIAs, on dealing with VietNam. McCain was a total asshole on these subjects. Kerry drove them home. These are facts. McCain bailed in every circumstance and tried to piggy-back on Kerry.

    The deal: Nobdy would have thought the Pretzeldent would just lie his ass off to impose some absurd bunch of lies. It was a crock. If you htink Daniel Pipes ought to be running your country, Well Pakistan and Israel, and both countries are nuts, are sitting on bombs and it would seem they’re unstable. We’re supposed to worry about Iran, that actually signed the NPT. Did India? Did Israel?

    Absurd. I don’t realy think this, but no future.

    Zombies in the MC. I grew up in the Motor City. We sell Four Roses over the counter if you can reach the counter. And I wanna be Anarchy.

    I wonder what Catholics think? I know for a fact that Bishops that have interfered are an extremely small bunch of assholes. Blaming thiis on Catholics is such an immense lie it amoumns to

    Catholics believe in human rights. The US bovernment thinks that’s passe. They think beating the shit out of anybody is acceptable

    Little Achilles baby heel in “Madmen”? The language. On last night’s rerun, Don said “wiggle room”.

Somebody else said “logo” – don’t recall hearing that before the 70’s.

    Joel Achenbach, a WaPo reporter/blogger, has posted an entry from a commenter who is a real estate salesman in Florida, land of foreclosures. Pretty grim picture. In addition to the human costs and the economic losses, he notes the loss of farmland, as fields were paved to build new condo developments that are now sitting empty.

    Here are two other sites, Brian, to feed your habit. I agree, though, that the 538 site is a lot of fun.

    Real Clear Politics

    Pollster.com

  23. brian stouder said on September 22, 2008 at 11:11 pm

    Thanks Jolene. Pollster.com is very user-friendly; it is now added to my bookmarks!

    (and I love that both of the sites show Indiana as a toss-up! But I think we hoosiers are the canaries in the coalmine; if Obama wins Indiana, he will necessarily have crushed McCain so comprehensively all across the country that we’d still be inconsequential!)

  24. Jolene said on September 23, 2008 at 12:45 am

    Bill Clinton was just on David Letterman explaining some aspects of our financial crisis in a way that made sense. Part of the problem, it seems, was that after the tech bubble collapsed near the end of his administration, there was no place other than housing for investors to put their money. With the Fed lowering interest rates to stimulate economic activity following the end of the tech run-up and foreign investors looking for a place to put money (this from Steve Pealstein of the WaPo), too much money went into real estate rather than into activities that might have helped to build the economy and meet real national needs–in healthcare, transportation, or energy, for instance. So, in addition to failing to regulate financial transactions, we should be pounding on our leaders for failing to use economic incentives to direct activity in ways that would create jobs that would allow people to buy houses w/o subprime mortgages!

    I’m sure there was some self-interest involved in that explanation (for instance, he put the date of the tech implosion as 2001-2002, when I think it was, at least, beginning to occur while he was still in office), but it made a lot of sense to me. Will look tomorrow to see whether there’s a video on line and, if so, post the link.

    On the other hand, he was far from satisfying as an advocate for Senator Obama–a fact that was noted emphatically by Chris Rock, who followed Clinton on the show. Even worse, Clinton is giving John McCain a platform at the annual meeting of the Clinton Global Initiative. What’s with that? If McCain wins, I’m sure he could find some way to suck up to him after the election. He doesn’t have to feature him in advance.

    Finally, damn, but he is a good-looking man. We should all age so attractively.

  25. moe99 said on September 23, 2008 at 12:55 am

    Bill Clinton can kiss my butt. I’ve developed a deep distrust bordering on hatred for him. Sure he’s smart, but he’s narcissistic to a degree that impairs his judgment in a number of ways. He wants to be President again and he’s not particular in how he can elevate himself to a comparable level. Sure he’s well spoken and all but it’s all in service to himself front and center.

  27. nancy said on September 23, 2008 at 1:13 am

    I’m sorry, but blaming this on bad lending — or borrowing — alone is like saying the Titanic sank, but not mentioning the iceberg. The real culprit in this are the securities that were built around this crap, and the duplicity that went into their sales and valuation. To let Moody’s off the hook while repeatedly sticking it to a few shlubs who ate the juicy worm is just immoral.

  28. Jolene said on September 23, 2008 at 1:30 am

    Actually, it seemed to me that Clinton steered clear of blaming, least of all subprime borrowers. I think his explanation relates more to the background economic conditions that gave rise to the opportunity to create the shaky securities–the availability of money that led to the real estate bubble. I think he would say that the money wouldn’t have been there to create the complex derivatives if people had been investing in say, more efficient solar energy panels rather than in mortgages. At least that’s what I think he would say. I am so not an economist or finance person.

    By way of defending my judgment, I should say that my view of Clinton is not altogether different from Moe’s. I have sometimes viewed him as a tragic figure–a man of immense talents unable to control his appetites or to risk taking a political stand that would make anybody angry But, lately, his failure to act like a grown-up w/ regard to the election has really pissed me off–not only because I am an Obama supporter, but because it seems like he and Hillary have violated principles of Politics 101. When you lose, you support the winner in your party. They’ve done that, but they could do a lot more.

    Waht is Henry Kissinger going to say about seeing Russia from Alaska on a clear day?

    http://www.iht.com/articles/2008/09/22/america/campaign.php?WT.mc_id=newsalert

    I can see Parris Island everyday and invade it frequently by ocean kayak. Bet I know know more about defense of this country than Sarah Palin does,

    I just read The Yiddish Policeman’s Union, so I.d bet I know everything you need to know about Alaska. But you might not be able to get the book in Wasila.

    Would people get a grip? Dude says Alaska should secede. Does Sarah stand by her man. She believes Alaska is the repository for righteous folks when the rapture comes.

    FBI is wripping up peoples’ homes to try to catch the Palin email infiltrator. I assume they’re just strolling past the law-breaking involved in wholesale avoidance of Public Records laws. Unitary presidency in defence of unitary Vice Presidency is bad enough. Unitary Alaskan Governship?

    The moral outrage about invading the privacy of the greatBullwinkle hunter is relatively hilarious next to the clear estra-legal attempt to obfuscate public records.

    With no real knowledge of the situation, it seems to me the First Dude hasn’t the balls to take on the First Brother in Law man to man. The guy Monegan is telling truth while the Dude is sullying the idea of the Dude, who will abide, and tacking that wanigan on the gubernatorial double-wide for the skinhead, the out-of-control kid and the neo-naxi new shotgun son in law..

    I guess he might not be a neo-Nazi, but I’m willing to take him at his word he’s a redneck. If you live in a WaPo world where mild exageration is identical to outright lies, who’s to say. According to Papers of Record, it’s the same thing to say McCain stands for 100 years war and to claim Obama standfs for virulent and intrusive sex education for Kinderhatyners. What sort of objective reporter equates these things?

    The liberal press posed clearly bogus questions about Kerry’s war record against the undeniable evidence that W just bailed, and they acted like this was fair and balanced. Is John McCain a war hero for being shot down? Tell you what. Look at the record in the senate. McCain has insulated himself from criticism and piggybacked on brilliant Senatorial behavior by Kerry. Fact, jack.And McCain’s hung Kerry out to dry.

    In my home state, South Carolina, (well, it’s not, I grew to 18 in Detroit, and after that, I’m a proud citizen of Georgia). Lindsay Graham represents me as a senator. My Senator was against torturing the wayward detained before John McCain convinced him that torture was legitimate. Now they’re both assholes, and potential war criminals. Way to go, tortured moral conscience. Is it difficult to undestand that residents of North Viet Nam were ill-disposed to a jet jockey that had been killing people indiscriminately from 50.000 feet?

    Hero? I don’t get it? Bombing isn’t heroic, by any stretch of the imagination. Getting shot down isn’t heroic. Seems like smart bombs blow up Afghan brides and grooms, regularly, and aren’t we proud? If Afgjams comgregate, Al Quaeda must be there. Morons. Next it’ll be Athens GA. A veritable hot-bed. Code Orange? Assholes.

    Back to the original topic… whoever that woman is, it’s not a very appealing picture at all. blank stupid look, probably fake t*ts, that mangled toe don’t even figure in it. the whole thing just screams “hey everyone, look at THESE, they’re all I got…”

    The real culprit in this are the securities that were built around this crap, and the duplicity that went into their sales and valuation

    yes.

    What happened to the concept of fiduciary responsibilities, and board certifications and so on – for the lending and investment institutions?

    Put another way, I’m tiring quickly of the racism and class-warfare stuff coming from the defenders of McCain/Bush/conservatives.

    In the scenario where a wide-eyed fool accepts a risky, rickety mortgage deal, laden with trapdoors and pitfalls, and the narrow-eyed sharpie who signed over and sold the deal, who should we (the taxpayers) be angry at?

    How is this even a CLOSE question? What the hell are bankers and mortgage company ‘professionals’ being paid to do (ideally)? I’d honestly like to see a few thousand white-collar people get sucked into criminal fraud trials, and sent off (in their SUV, no doubt) to work-release programs and ankle bracelets…maybe they can assist those laughable ‘community organizers’ that drew so many sneers in Minneapolis (and on the rightwing airwaves)

  46. LA Mary said on September 24, 2008 at 2:24 am

    Catherine, I bet you and I see plenty of the not so real things you can spot a half block away.
    I used to work with a woman who was saving for two years for a boob job. She finally got one shortly before Christmas, going from a B to a D. She had let everyone know she was having it done, and after a couple of days of recovery, showed up at the office Christmas party in a strapless number, flirting outrageously with the most successful guy in the room. He drove her crazy not mentioning her tits, but saying, “hmm, something’s different. New shoes? Did you color your hair?”

  47. basset said on September 24, 2008 at 7:12 am

    “are your toes crooked? you sure?”

    real or not… and I will defer to the expert judgment of others … they’re too much and too obvious.

    and I may be the only person in the English-speaking world who’s never watched Seinfeld, either…

    I never watched Seinfeld, Basset. It was on during my non-tv watching period when the kids were small. Never watched Friends either.
