Saturday morning crystallized what this campaign is really about. I will now outline my theory of this year’s Presidential race.
Other have hinted around the edges of what I’m about to say, but no one’s made the connections.
As I write this (or first did on Facebook) “Pal Joey” is on TCM, playing in the background and I can't help thinking how much cooler Richard Rogers was when Lorenz Hart was doing his lyrics instead of Oscar Hammerstein.
How can we tell Shabbos is sacred?
Who needs the IDC to undermine you, when you are perfectly capable of doing it yourself?
Romney's praises Ben-GurionCare (enacted by a socialist anti-colonialist)

I've noted more than once that I rarely discuss the Second Amendment with my friends, because I have the somewhat controversial opinion that the plain meaning of words is exactly that, so the regrettable Second Amendment means people can own guns, subject to regulation. I don't particularly care for that, but I don't like equal representation in the US Senate either, and that's in the text as well.
The member of the Weiner household with a future that involves something other than diapers or stand up takes center stage.
Don't put too much stock in the fact that Shelly Silver called Democratic control of the State Senate is “enticing;” he probably thinks lobster is enticing too, but you won't catch him putting it on his menu. In both cases, Shelly thinks they are traife.
