My favorite moment of the week…
And my least…
In a week that saw Romney coin the new phrase “self-deportation," Gingrich announced his plan to build a colony on the moon by the end of his second term, Rick Santorum suggested that women who’ve been raped and become pregnant just “make the best of a bad situation,” Ron Paul had the best idea, which was to send them all to the moon.
Perhaps we shouldn’t be laughing just yet. This is, after all, the country that elected GW twice.
Trailing poll numbers did not stop Rick Santorum from soliciting donations with a new website: “Conservatives Unite Moneybomb.” Or CUM, for short.
You'd think Santorum, of all people, would have given that more thought.
If that left a bad taste in your mouth…
On Friday, the most obese nation in the world celebrated National Chocolate Cake Day.
Maybe “celebrated” is the wrong word. I don’t recall any parades and the post office was still open. Chocolate cake to this day remains my number one choice for birthdays, so I don’t begrudge this popular treat its day in the spotlight. Still, for a country that lusts for sugar while obsessing about thinness, it’s good to see that National Eating Disorders Week will be coming up soon.
And the Oscars were in the news this week...
... continuing their tradition of nominating people no one ever heard of from films no one saw.
Which fave of yours got snubbed?
It’s a good thing the always entertaining Billy Crystal will be hosting this year.
And finally, if you missed the moment, here’s… The Hug.
Didn't Mom teach you to share?
