Joe Biden Is An Idiot
Monday, January 29, 2007
Joshua Muravchik on Jimmy Carter. It's long, but really worth reading.
Ever since his presidency, there has been a wide gap between Carter’s estimation of himself and the esteem in which other Americans hold him. This has manifestly embittered him. For all his talk of “love,” the driving motives behind his post-presidential ventures seem, in fact, to be bitterness together with narcissism (as it happens, two prime ingredients of a martyr complex). But he has worked hard to earn the reputation he enjoys. In contravention of the elementary responsibilities of loyalty for one in his position, he has denigrated American policies and leaders in his public and private discussions in foreign lands. He has undertaken personal diplomacy to thwart the policies of the men elected to succeed him. And in doing so he has, at least in the case of North Korea, actively damaged our security.

A Lizard Messiah?

Religion is observed in the Baron Cohen family but does not dominate. “I wouldn’t say I am a religious Jew,” he told NPR. “I am proud of my Jewish identity and there are certain things I do and customs I keep.”
It’s what you might call Church of England Jewish: he tries to keep kosher and attends synagogue about twice a year. Where possible he goes home on Fridays to observe the Sabbath with his family. Not that he gets home very often. He lives in Los Angeles with his fiancée, the Australian actress Isla Fisher (perhaps best known
as Shannon from Home and Away).
Something Funny Happened On The Way Out Of the Parking Lot
Not wanting to start a political argument with a complete stranger, I holler back, “I have no idea!” The attendant shoots back, “Why?” I end this weird conversation with, “Hey, the election isn’t for another two years.” That finally quiets her. I’m still scratching my head over this incident.

So as I'm enjoying my prime rib, a waiter shows up and places a plate of potato kugel on the table. Huh? What the heck is 13 inch round, uncut kugel doing on the table?
No disrespect to the kugel; I love potato kugel. But it seemed a little out of place next to the prime rib and pistachio nut encrusted chicken, baby vegetables, and potato puree.
Has anyone seen this before?
