Trying too hard to be cool is not cool

Look, kids, the Republicans know Paris Hilton and Britney Spears have enjoyed fame in the last decade! And they've seen those old Norm Macdonald sketches on Saturday Night Live where he talks about how much Germans love David Hasselhoff, too!

Surely these ultra-clever pop culture references, along with John McCain's avowed awareness of the Internet, shall be the final elements needed to establish the GOP brand as the choice du jour of the "it" crowd and thus worthy of electoral dominance this fall. Or maybe they can keep people from thinking about, you know, issues and stuff. Hey, it's a win either way, right?

The long-promised return to regular posting will begin no later than this weekend. Now that political reality seems more outlandish than the best efforts of The Onion and Stephen Colbert combined, I have too much material to stay away any longer.

McCain knows who will be the real 'Celebrity' after Obama takes the Oath in January.

Glad to see you're going to get going with your blog. I'll be checking in (after I get back from Germany in the latter part of August)
