I can’t believe that I am doing this … but I feel moved to add the White House website to the links here in the JordanCornblog sidebar. I feel moved to explore the site, read the blog, check it all out periodically. What is happening? As someone who grew up in the sixties and came of age during Watergate, I hardly know myself.
Meanwhile, the drama around Hillary’s Senate replacement seems to be drawing to a close as the Huffington Post and other sources are reporting that Governor Paterson will be announcing the appointment of Kirsten Gillibrand (D-Hudson) today. It’s been an amazingly disjointed and confusing process … as evidenced by the Huffington piece which cites lots of conflicting reports, even through last night. While not attaining the heady reaches of the Blago-sphere, Governor Paterson’s performance in this regard has certainly been something-less-than-stellar.
In our Rachel Maddow fashion feature (something we seem to be slightly fixated on at the moment) it’s noteworthy that she lost the turtleneck last night. Too bad, we say. It’s a good look (although one should definitely consider the source when weighing JordanCornblog fashion statements). On Maddow’s site, we see that Susan Mikula has an important show titled Sic transit at the Chelsea Gallery. CB … could you please go check it out? 😉
Of course, speaking of fashion – Princess Sparkle Pony always has the latest – including the odd fact that Condi has signed with the William Morris Agency. Say what?
In soccer “stuff” we have an interview with Hope Solo (now a brunette, apparently) by Andrea Canales. As you can see from the following excerpt, clearly Hope is into Change (watchwords for this period, eh)?
I’m just excited for a change. I’m at that point in my career, I’m 27, where I just want something different. Going in, I don’t know what to expect. I have a Brazilian coach. He doesn’t speak English. I have a Brazilian goalkeeper coach, and he too doesn’t speak English. I’ve heard his style is completely different than anything I’ve ever seen. As much as it’s going to be interesting – I’m happy to have something new, because I think change is good. Check out the hair color.
