"Love for All"

One more reason to love him: Bjorn Borg launches a dating site with the below commercial. Love for all, indeed!

It's Real!

This is not a joke. I don't think.

A Worthy Read

A friend sent me this. It's about a butler worthy of hugs from a First Lady and state dinner invitations from the President. It's the best thing I've read all week, a touching and human story about race, and progress, and presidents.

'This is About the Human Heart'

A dose of history and common sense from Keith Olbermann about gay marriage. Bravo.

Mr. President-Elect, and Grandpa

The kid with the threatening stick in the back, like so many others, is on the wrong side of history. No you can't, little boy.

But yes we can!

Not Entirely Red

Obams has won 20 percent of Nebraska's electoral votes. More here.

That gives Obama 365 electoral votes. The most ever won by W was 286, who also won 271 Supreme-Court-aided votes in 2000.

Hetero Divorce: Still Legal

The people of California denied Ellen her marriage rights on Tuesday.
Apparently a loving lesbian couple presents a threat to traditional marriage, according to the will of a majority of voters.


Where's the proposition banning heterosexual divorce?

UPDATE: Good news for Ellen and 17,999 others.

The First Family-Elect

Totally, totally adorable.

And we totally, totally forgive Michelle for that dress.

Keep hope alive, mis amigos.

Four Words: "President-Elect Barack Obama"

Three more: "God Bless America"

Ignore my last post: The big winner tonight is the promise of America.

The Big Winner on Tuesday Will Be ...

Sarah Palin.

No. I don't think she'll win the election; in fact, I think she is costing John McCain votes. A lot of them.

Nor do I think she is necessarily eyeing a run for president in 2012. This probably isn't her first option, nor her best.

I think she's looking to cash in.

I expect that sometime in the next four years she will pursue or be presented with a syndicated talk show opportunity, on radio or TV. Think of her as a female Rush Limbaugh, an Oprah for conservatives. (Limbaugh made a reported $33 million last year.) Sure, a lot of people hate her, including a segment of moderate Republicans. But a niche of people absolutely love her.

She'll make millions.

She could even replace Elisabeth Hasslebeck on The View, or join Elisabeth on some new syndicated show for conservative soccer moms and Jane the Plumber.

On Tuesday, Barack Obama will become the next president of the United States, inheriting all the messes from Bush the Lesser. What he faces won't be easy.

But Sarah Palin? Sometime in the next four years, if she chooses this path, she'll be a filthy rich celebrity.
