Around the Horn
Aaron asks, what movies make men cry
? Speaking for myself only, I'm more likely to cry not at sad parts but at happy ones, at moments of triumph and redemption; when Ralphie gets his BB gun, when Scrooge becomes a good man, when Rudy is accepted to Notre Dame.
Kitty points out that the correct term for Edwards is prissy
. Yes, I think Ann mistook metrosexual for homosexual.
Andrea Shea-King checks out Rudy Giuliani's record
of appointments to the courts in Manhattan and finds he nominated Democrats over Republicans by a factor of 8-1. In fairness to Rudy, you ever try to find a Republican lawyer in New York? But I certainly agree that social conservatives will have to think long and hard before casting a primary ballot for Rudy G.
Third Wave Dave has an interesting post up about Fred Thompson's possible run
. Andrea suggested he'd make a good candidate on yesterday's show. I like Thompson, but doubt he'll get very far; InTrade
has him at 0.2 to 0.5 cents (to win a dollar if he's the nominee). McCain's in the high 20s and Rudy's in the low 30s. If you really like Thompson, a $20 wager could net $4,000.
Hillary Needs a Vacation has coverage of PIAPS' ire
at Eliot Spitzer for not endorsing her (yet).
