We don’t need no education

Three-year olds protest the Iraq war (with video).

On one hand, it’s creepy as hell. On the other, they probably know as much as their elders anyway.

Song of the Day

“Back to Black” by Amy Winehouse.

Like everyone and their mother, I am completely obsessed with Miz Winehouse. Her sound is just incredible. This song is awesome.

I think this is it….

Fred Thompson quits LAW AND ORDER…

I am trying to temper my excitement but I can feel myself chugging the Kool-Aid. Fred!

Blogroll update

What does it mean that two of my semi-regular commenters are writing a political blog and didn’t tell me? I’m looking at you and you.

Some poker bloggers I know have joined together to form a political opinion site called Verbosities. I’ll add it to the Here, There and Everywhere section of the blogroll since the contributors are scattered all over the place. Check it out.

Paging Von Bek, again

If Fred Thompson does indeed get in the race, and Tommy Thompson doesn’t see the writing on the wall and drop out before then, won’t it be more than a little confusing to have two Thompsons vying for the Republican nomination?

Ace’s moron-blog readers have already confused the two while voting in an online poll and these are, presumably, people who read blogs and should be more plugged in than the general population.

So, how will it work with two Thompsons? And have we ever had a race where two candidates shared a last name?


Yes, I’m concerned that the hype will translate into a Fred flop and yes, I know he’s not perfect, but wowee am I excited that it looks like Fred Thompson will enter the race on the 4th of July. Anyone want to roadtrip to Tennessee right around then to watch him announce? Allah? Ace?

Hat-tip Peter and Charlie.

If Ben Affleck says it, it must be true

Via Drudge:



Romney’s main mouth Eric Fehrnstrom, when asked to comment about the Affleck rant, told the Track in an e-mail: “I think the polite thing to say is no comment. We don’t spend a lot of time thinking about what Hollywood actors are saying about the presidential campaign.”

So, who wants to take me to Mexico?

Largest-ever exhibit of Frida Kahlo work to open in Mexico

I went to a Frida Kahlo/Diego Rivera exhibit a few years ago in Paris and it was one of the most incredible exhibits I’ve ever seen. Should you find yourself in Mexico City before August, check it out.

“I love you, but I’m afraid to love you. Oh that was so real.”

Jeff Buckley died while swimming in the Mississippi River 10 years ago today. He was beautiful and made perfect, gorgeous music. On his song “Lover, You Should Have Come Over”, he sang about shoes filling up with water. He drowned wearing his boots. We didn’t have him long enough and that’s really too bad.

Hat-tip Peter.

The John Johns

John Kerry’s former advisor says the Senator voted for the Iraq war out of political expediency. Ya don’t say.

Bonus: John Edwards is creepy as hell.
