Mojo, DADT, BARFF, and Kitsch Obama Style

Kitsch is the inability to admit that shit exists" — Milan Kundera

It’s interesting—as soon as Don’t Ask Don’t Tell disappears, so too must our acuity, our memory, our mind disappear. As soon as Obama stands before us with his big beautiful smile and his big beautiful voice, articulating in heart-felt tones the positives that seem incapable of being understood as clichés as long as He speaks them, all of a sudden “Obama’s got his mojo back!”

Tax rebates? LIving expenses?

"Thank God for Flood Insurance!" one distraught homeowner preached to the news anchor. Just the sort of blasphemy we 2 million without Christmas trees love to hear: Oh God, thank you so much for insurance companies. What would our lives be like without them?
