Speaking of really good blog headers, did you know that… (a) the State Department has a blog (b) it looks all hip and has a Twitter feed in the sidebar (c) it’s called Dipnote, which is awesomely close to Dipset, which the State Department may or may not know is another name for the “Harlem-based hip hop group” The Diplomats (hey, that works on so many levels!!) (d) this blog has a really nice looking blog header? Yes, all of these things are true. What’s more, Hillary is setting up some kind of cyber-program in which “American students will partner with our embassies abroad to conduct digital diplomacy that reflects the realities of our networked world”? What does that even mean?! But hey, we’re living in the future! 2009!

“For me, this will be the enduring memory of election night 2008: One generation released its grief. The next looked up confusedly, eager to please and yet unable to comprehend just what the tears were about.”
“Like many Americans, I first saw Barack Obama at the 2004 Democratic convention. I remember telling my wife excitedly, “This guy is probably stuffed after a cup of minestrone!”

Did anyone else notice the Republicans played Heart’s “Barracuda” like 3 songs after McCain finished his speech at the convention last night? WTF? I’d really like to have been there for the decision making process behind that one: “This song is just BAD ASS — John McCain is a bad ass! YEAH ADDING TO PLAYLIST!!” And it looks like Heart is confused, and rightfully pissed, too.
