Hailing A Sedan Chair For Caroline Kennedy

BLOOMBERG columnist Albert R. Hunt “makes the case for why Basil Paterson’s son should appoint John F. Kennedy’s daughter to replace Bill Clinton’s wife in the Senate”:

[Caroline Kennedy] has all the qualities–intellectual curiosity; a friendly, at times pointed, sense of humor, and a deferential manner (she hails her own cabs)–that are the stuff of a good legislator.

She hails her own cabs. Caroline Kennedy does not appoint a designated cab hailer.

We await the happy day when Caroline Kennedy gives her all for the green movement and takes to going about in an eco-friendly sedcan chair.

Sedan for Caroline!

PREACHER RIck Warren will bring in the Age Of Obama.

Says he:

You don’t have to see eye to eye to walk hand in hand.. I have many gay friends”

And he’s just as sure on his position on other religions:

When it came time for questions, a woman stood up, proclaimed her Judaism, and asked Warren if she was going to burn in hell. He paused before responding–and then answered her question the only way it could be answered. Yes, he said to audible gasps.

God Versus Santa: Fight

WHAT’S the difference between God and Santa?

Atheists ask the question.

But to Old Mr Anorak’s mind the answer seems to be based on which of Santa and God can punish you more if you don’t believe:

Santa won’t give you a new scarf; God will send you to Hell for all eterntity.

On the other hand, if you really believe, Santa will bring you a diamond G-string worn by someone who should and God will bring you years of worry and self-loathing…

Choices…
