The top 10 money-making movies of all time, adjusted for inflation are: "Gone with the Wind," "Avatar," "Star Wars (the original)," "Titanic," "The Sound of Music," "E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial," "The Ten Commandments," "Doctor Zhivago," "Jaws," and "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs." Not a single R-rated movie in the bunch.
On the other hand, I know a lot of women -- mostly the 18- to 35-year-olds -- who don't think any higher than their waist.

Don't forget the other side of slow news -- the breakdown of the family, the celebration of perversion, the acceptance of corruption, the institutionalization of failure.

So if it were 50.1% we could put "most" in ALL CAPS because, you know, they read louder. And as more felt it was patriotic than felt it was unpatriotic -- polls never sum to 100% -- "most" is a fair statement.
I'm not too sure about the women.

Obama’s Scandal Playbook

Ms. Pavlich; may I call you Katie? Please forgive the stereotyping, Katie, but your photograph makes you look quite young and I'd just like to say it is gratifying to read something from someone just-out-of-college who can apply logic and recognize patterns. I might re-name Step 4 as "Attack Outside Investigation" because, as you point out in Step 2, an internal investigation (that will find no evidence of wrongdoing) is part of the plan. I would also re-name Step 5 "Declare It's Time to Move On" because I feel that more accurately describes the ploy. All in all, a most excellent article.
"The shocking, inarticulate stupidity of this analysis is only outdone by the stunning ease with which Clinton offered it." I've been inundated with this "shocking, inarticulate stupidity" from a (rapidly becoming former) friend in her mid-thirties who chose not to have children -- I imagine she felt it would hamper her career as a wonderfully talented but as yet unpublished novelist -- and is now insisting the Supreme Court is going to make her change a thousand diapers a day. Trying to reason with a liberal is like trying to teach Hindu to a beagle.

And why wouldn't they think that, with liberals in the schools and universities and liberals in the entertainment industry and liberals in the media saying that, over and over again, their entire lives? It's all they've ever heard. I would wager, however, that if you transported them to live in whatever they thought the greatest nation in the world IS, they would be in for quite an eye-opening experience. But such an experiment is unlikely: Reality is death to liberal thought; it can only exist in theory.

Even Obama's ex-pastor, Jeremiah Wright, knows that Obama participated in his church merely as a political strategy. (Being seen in the Black church can woo a lot of Black voters.)
