How much do I love Keith Olbermann? On Palin's speech: "People who like this sort of thing... will find this to be... the sort of thing they like."

After staying up late (again) to watch the replay of another convention speech (again) I was woken today by a phone call and took a look at the news. I'm now researching this Sarah Palin woman, who seems to support drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Reserve, is pro-life as hell, pro-NRA, and has banned gay marriage in her state and passed legislation to deny benefits to partners of gay state employees, even though Wikipedia reminds us "she has stated that she has gay friends." As Jerell from Project Runway would say, she's got two years in office and one stank policy. Don't trust the bitch.

My infamous *NSYNC poem is finally in print. You can buy it, along with some other poems and stories and junk, for a low price of $11. Or if you want t give me $11 directly, I'll come and read it in person at your child's bar and/or bat mitzvah.

"I LOVE THE NEW MILLENNIUM" PREMIERES MONDAY-THURSDAY, JUNE 23-26 AT 9 PM AND 10 PM

I love that VH1 cannot even wait until this decade is over to make a talking head series about it. According to the press release, they are going to talk about the Big Mouth Billy Bass and the "Thong Song." THONG SONG. Oh, and: How did people watch television before TiVo? Who decided that trucker hats weren't just for truckers anymore? And perhaps most importantly of all...who let the dogs out?

They must be stopped.

The past two days have been Futureheads mania and I would do each member of that band hardcore, even though they totally broke my eardrums tonight, the end.

The world at large seems to have a depressing singular voice tonight.

I'm happy for Obama and think he will make a superb candidate. I don't have sour grapes. I do find it perturbing that people are jeering at Clinton -- arguably one of the finest, most experienced, most eloquent and capable female politicians we have -- for continuing the fight. To an extent, it's not about her anymore; it's symbolic. I don't care what anyone says to dismiss it; her campaign brought to light the insane amount of unabashed sexism we still foster and condone in this country. I am depressed by the sheer number of women I see and hear making jokes at her expense. Whether she's seen as a typical selfish, rich politician or a feminist figurehead is a matter of opinion; there's no denying that a presidential campaign of a female candidate was both historical and long overdue.

Obama should ask Clinton to be his running mate. He probably doesn't want to, but he should. I highly doubt it would divide things as badly as some people think. Is it not blatantly obvious how close the race was all along, and that Clinton has a ton of support? That support isn't going to go away -- speaking as someone with a best friend who owns a Hillary Clinton travel mug and once sent me five emails in an hour asking me to contribute to her campaign. And for every person who doesn't want Obama running with Clinton, there's another person out there who won't vote for Obama because he's "elitist" and/or black. Furthermore, VPs don't really have much power in the long run. It would be more symbolic than anything; a black man and a woman running together -- a strong message to the old white men who've been in charge of everything up to this point, to the racist and sexist citizens of our country. I don't see how it would make things worse; they would be a political powerhouse. Anyone who would drop their support of Obama because of his VP choice probably doesn't feel too strongly about his platform or know much about politics in general, and I'd be happier if they stayed at home and didn't waste everyone else's time on Election Day.

Obama is a remarkably smart man, but he will be discredited again and again and again. They're going to smoke him on his lack of experience, as debatable as it may be. He could do a lot worse than a running mate who's already seen it all and been raked through the coals more times than one can even count.

This is not to say that I'm against people expressing their Obama love. I will devote myself to the hopes of him winning, for sure. But the Clinton hate is a bit much. She deserves a lot of respect and admiration for making it so far. That respect can even start with her name; if Barack is "Obama," Hillary should be "Clinton." What's good for the gander is good for the goose; let's not be convinced otherwise.

ANTM is awesome this cycle. I totally called the walking forehead getting kicked off first, but I had no idea she was going to volunteer to leave because she has a distaste for fashion! Way to leave that part out when all those other girls left behind were bawling. Paulina Porizkova totally wants to beat out Janice Dickinson as bitchiest judge ever. And Miss J has all of their names on her jacket and rips them off in disgust when they get eliminated! Plus, bonus exploitation of female genital mutilation (going from calling it a "special" ritual in one breath to the most horrible thing a woman can ever experience in the next and mentioning it every five minutes)! And a kickoff photoshoot where they dress up like homeless people while posing with a group of FORMER HOMELESS PEOPLE. Eating garbage and begging for change = so glamorous! This cycle has it all, I tell you. Tyra, I do bow.

Mary & I Are Good Roommates, Episode #1

While both watching VH1's Top 100 Songs of the '90s in our respective bedrooms:

mary: uuuuugh ultragrrrl
mary: i am so glad she got fired
me: but she's insightful
me: "like, ugh, who doesn't relate to that??"
me: brilliance
mary: i just can't help thinking how awkward her and mikey way's first time must have been
me: did she sleep with him? gross
mary: they were high school sweethearts
mary: then he married pete wentz's sloppy seconds
me: isn't that pete wentz pic i sent you the worst picture ever?
mary: oh dude, yes
me: he looks like a retarded caveman
me: the other cavemen ostracize him

Then she yelled that I should post it on LJ. I have to point out that she yelled it, because we were IMing. Yes, in the same apartment. Now she's in a rush to finish her laundry because I told her "Tearin' Up My Heart" was coming up soon on the countdown.
