Yep. And where is our national media? Busy doing horse race immitations and sucking up to MaCain's totally innane "straight talk" image. Nice to see they know what really matters in the world, and they are just so damned generous in sharing that remarkable wisdom.


C'mon, now; there are things we know and things we don't know and there are things we don't: wait, I get those people confused all the time. Too bad we don't have a Soviet Union to fight so she could use all her useless expertise.
She can play the piano and buy expensive shoes. I bet Bush can't do either.


I bet Condi can do things Monica Lewinski never thought of.

(Apologies to Monica Lewinski for comparing her with Condi)


I think I love you and I know I love your blog.


Gee, Nora, are you sure?

I'm not opposed to being loved--particularly not if it's an all out Breeding Boys type girl frenzy--but, just from visiting your blog, it seems like you would hate me.


reminds me of something the venerable Jim Bliss once said about her;

Much is said of her childhood prodigiousness… the fact that she graduated from university whilst still a foetus. And then people say that she’s a “concert pianist”. But they forget to point out that’s actually one and the same point. She went to university on a piano scholarship.

Don’t get me wrong… I’m a music geek, and excellent musicians impress the hell out of me. I have a deep and abiding respect for anyone who can make genuinely beautiful music. But it doesn’t automatically make you an “intellectual heavyweight”. And it certainly doesn’t mean you’re a good choice for Secretary of State.

I believe, for instance, that Prince is one of the handful of most talented musicians to have ever lived. I would nonetheless question the wisdom of putting him in charge of US foreign policy.

I suspect he’d do a better - albeit weirder - job than is currently being done, but I still don’t think Sign ‘O’ The Times merits that level of power. Call me old-fashioned, but there you have it.


wery good, respect!
