Scripting News for 1/28/2008

I’m a California voter for Obama 

I’ve got an Obama poster in the right margin of the home page of Scripting News. It’ll stay there for the duration as a virtual equivalent of one of those signs people put on their front lawns. I live in California, one of the Super Tuesday states and I’m an Obama voter. That’s what the poster means. Pass it on.

After Google indexes Scripting News, this query will have exactly one match. Right now it has none. Let’s load up Google with lots of blogs with Californians voting for Obama. And of course every other state in the union. 🙂

PS: This is where I got the poster.

Chris Matthews said something intelligent 

Most of what Chris Matthews says is mindless trash, but today he pulled out a great analogy immediately after Ted Kennedy’s stirring endorsement of Obama.

He compared Hillary Clinton to the character Salieri in the movie Amadeus. Until Mozart came along he was the leading composer in Vienna, but he was just a workman, a technician. Mozart had inspiration, feeling, the spirit. Salieri, even though he lived a long life and Mozart died young, is a footnote to Mozart’s lasting greatness.

Matthews nailed it.

Maybe this makes up for his calling the voters of New Hampshire racists because he and every other pundit read the polling data wrong. 🙂

Bill Clinton as Trent Lott 2.0 

Yesterday’s piece, lightly edited, on the Huffington Post.

I think it looks pretty good over there! 🙂

One response to this post.

  1. You nailed it, Dave. Thanks.
