    From the article

    McCain has complained on the campaign trail that he hasn’t been invited even one time to the White House to negotiate legislation. Perhaps the show’s upcoming Season 4 premiere could be an opening for Obama to heal the rift?

    @demo woman: It will come as little or no surprise that McCain is lying (or has perhaps simply forgotten); recall that he was part of the GOP delegation for the “health care summit” last year.

    OK, technically that was held at Blair House across the street from the White House, but that’s a real hair-splitting distinction.

    Actually, given that McCain is to the left, the title might work a little better if it were “December/January” instead of vice versa.

    But yeah, the title pretty much works as the caption.

    Uhhh, except for that one time…at HCR Camp, which lasted all day, was nationally televised and covered by hordes of reporters where he couldn’t help but be a cranky old dick and Obama squashed his idiotic ass in front of everyone…

    yeah, that time

    good times!

    McCain has complained on the campaign trail that he hasn’t been invited even one time to the White House to negotiate legislation.

    If McCain wants Kabuki theatre, maybe Obama should give it to him. On second thought, it’s not like Grumpy McGrumpypants would change his tune. What exact senior position in the Senate does McCain hold, anyway? Other than designated Sunday Morning Talk Show President?

    It’s hard to tell, but I think her arm is behind the Senator’s back (note the green plant between their hips), so they could be touching.

    But that’s getting too close to kerning, so I’ll stop.

    McCain’s insane. Not only didn’t he contribute at that HCR meeting, but he sat like a sodden lump at that economic summit that was held during the 2008 campaign. Why invite him anywhere if he doesn’t bother to contribute? It’s not like they need his pretty face.

    @kommrade reproductive vigor: I was thinking more along the lines of “sharts,” but then, I’m immature that way. But you know, McCain is probably susceptible to those. Which may explain why he’s not invited to the White House to negotiate legislation. It’s all connected!

    After meeting with a representative from the C Street Family Senator McCain announced that he would be visiting regularly at their Washington DC Center.

    When asked about the meeting he replied:

    “My experience with the fundamentalist community hasn’t always been good. I view this as a chance to build a new relationship, get some hands on experience, and make sure their needs are being taken care of.”

    Many DC area conservatives actually live it the C Street center while they are away from their districts. We asked the Senator if he had considered doing the same.

    “Well it is too early to take up residence but I think it is safe to say I will be spending some nights there. They have promised to show me the ins and outs, and if I like it as much as I think I will, I might consider making it a regular thing. It’s all very exciting!”

    Open thread, right?

    You have to check out ABC’s latest outrage, blogged at Media Matters: http://mediamatters.org/blog/201007150011

    This is from an ABCNews.com article:

    The Recovery Act logo which was provided not only looks oddly similar to the Obama logo from the 2008 campaign but its stated purpose, according to the document, is to act as “a symbol of President Obama’s commitment to the American people to invest their tax dollars wisely and put Americans back to work.”

    MMFA goes on to observe:

    I guess if by “oddly similar” they mean they’re both circles, then I might get it. What “looks oddly similar” to me is the bizarre tendency among various media figures to see a resemblance to Obama’s campaign logo in just about anything that is round.

    The comments are priceless too.

    OT – I like the guy, but was Weigel as maddening at the Wapo as he has been borg blogging for Sully? Jesus Christ, he has been full of “Left is just as bad as the Right” Bobo-esque false equivalencies, and it’s driving me nuts.

    The New Black Panther Party plays the same role for the right that Hutaree-style militants play for the left: They’re a tiny, uninfluential group whose importance is magnified to keep the base excited. Left and right wind up worrying more about each other than they care about the institutions that actually govern the country. It’s great if your goal is maintaining movement identity, but not if you’re more interested in changing policy than collecting scalps.

    I like this comparison and think it’s 99% true. The 1% where it’s not true — the left gets attention when warning about militia dangers because of Oklahoma City. Unfair, probably, but militia members who mean well know how damaging the legacy of Timothy McVeigh has been. The left knows this, and that’s why you see a rush to paint conservatives with the “militia” brush — Americans hear it and think “like those terrorists who blew up the Murrah building!” By contrast, the fringe New Black Panthers are more silly than violent.

    Oh for Fuck’s sake, the angry white guy/militia/2nd amendment/sovereign citizen movement has grown and has committed violent acts including multiple murders in the name of their insane beliefs/paranoia. The New Black Panthers nonsense is just another glob of bullshit wingnuts are throwing to the wall to see what sticks.

    It’ll be some civil rights activist/famous hispanic nominated to be put on a stamp that has them freaking the fuck out next week.

    Fuck it, just go read TNC.

    As for Weigel, I fear the Ring is slowly taking Frodo, if you know what I mean.

    His birth year in real life is probably pretty close to hers in the show.

    He was born in 1936, so he was 27 in 1963. I think that is roughly what her character is supposed to be.

    For McCain, Mad Men is about his generation.
