A day of blogging is like an evening of strong cocktails and loud conversation. Somebody says something that moves you; you say something back. There's a lot of good give and take, and there's some acrimony, sure – but oftentimes you reach a consensus and there are always a few laughs along the way. Blogging works much the same, only it's just me, my computer and whatever I happen to read on it. Blogging is cocktail party debate in the form of a website - the news hits, and I hit back. Fun.And he has the nerve to say to the world what a lot of us were saying in private: the nominee's name is boring us! Okay, inspired by Green, I'll say what I said that made Chris laugh last night: "It's like he doesn't even have a name."
It's sort of like a name in Frank Capra title: "Meet John Roberts." "John Roberts Goes to the Supreme Court."
Chris says all the current Justices have interesting names. I say "Thomas" is a pretty boring name. He says "Clarence" is interesting. I say, "Yeah, like the angel in 'It's a Wonderful Life.'"
