Drunk Shopping on QVC

Apropos of my post of a few days ago about stores targeting people who are drunk-shopping, check out what QVC is hawking as we speak  (at 9:12 p.m. ET / on 1-1-12):

$1,000 for a camera?  Someone, anyone, please, is QVC’s audience as a whole in the bracket of those who can afford to spend that kind of money on that kind of thing?

I don’t think so.

Heck.  I wouldn’t pay that much either.  I looked at a camera the other day that was going for something like $84, and I nixed it.

It’s just sad.  Sad that ten days from now good, well intentioned good people will open their credit card statements and wonder WHAT THE HELL DID I DO?  QVC, on the other hand, will smile all the way to the bank.

Ugh.

Homes of the GOP Presidential Candidates

Time to be a voyeur — meow — and to take a peek at the homes of the GOP presidential candidates, like Rick Santorum’s home in Great Falls, Virginia:

Or this one; Mitt Romney’s home on Lake Winnipesaukee in Wolfeboro, New Hampshire:

Far as I know, Romney also has a home in Massachusetts and one in La Jolla, California.  One would think he has one in Michigan too but I don’t know that for a fact.

Anyway, see the rest of the pix here.

What’s With Ezra Klein?

If you’re a news junkie like me you know who Ezra Klein is. And you probably think, like me, that he has the potential to be an up and coming liberal, soon-to-be star.

But I must admit that when MSNBC signed him on as a “contributor” a month or so ago, I wondered why.  I mean, you don’t get to be a “contributor” on MSNBC if you’re a true radical lefty.  You have to have kissed some corporate a** somewhere along the line.

I’m not saying that this is the be all, end all article about Mr. Klein but I think it’s an enlightening glimpse into what he’s about: Ezra Klein’s Shine Job on the Kochs:

Ezra’s shine-job, headlined “How powerful are the Koch brothers?” does its Beigeist best to muddle the reader’s head into believing that, yeah, the Kochs are kinda bad ‘n stuff, but hey, it’s just how things are.

That ain’t good.

Just sayin’.

Does Tim Tebow Expect God to Do ALL the Work?

I live in the Denver area and I can tell you that the local sports shows aren’t at all happy with the Denver Broncos tonight. This is the kind of thing I’m hearing (as in a lot of irritation):

Whatever swagger the Denver Broncos had following their six-game win streak has flown out the window. The offensively offense-less Broncos lost 3-7 to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 17, dropping their third straight game to finish the 2011 season 8-8.

Tim Tebow‘s fourth quarter magic has been noticeably missing of late. …  His fumble in the second quarter within striking distance of the Chiefs’ end zone was an even larger game-killer. Tebow finished 6 for 22 for 60 yards and an interception.

6 for 22? In one game? Really?

Is the guy even trying?

Does he expect God to do all the work?

Rupert Murdoch Joins Twitter?

The big news about Fox today is that Rupert Murdoch has supposedly joined Twitter.

Yes, there is a Twitter account under Rupert’s name and it has his picture on it but even if it’s his “officially sanctioned” account, who in the world thinks an 80-year-old guy with Alzheimer’s disease is capable of sending out tweets like these?

Did you see him testify before the British inquiry investigating telephone hacking at News of the World?  I loathe the guy but I actually felt kind of sorry for him.  It was painful and pitiful to watch.

No way is he composing those snappy things.
