Re: Arizona is a blasted hellscape

He can only do that if Kyl steps down voluntarily. Right. Kyl has said that's exactly what he intends to do. The appointment is for the rest of the term. What I'm really curious about is the actual wording of the law at this point. Because normally if a Senator retires mid term, we get a special el...

Re: Arizona is a blasted hellscape

I just heard Kyl on the radio indicating that he doesn't intend to stay in the Senate past the end of the year. This puts Ducey's strategy into context: pick an uncontroversial choice, win reelection, then appoint whatever even-farther-right yes-man he REALLY wants. If Garcia wins, I expect Kyl to h...

Re: Let's all go to the movies~

I saw the trailer for Small Foot and I expected a bog-standard, mindless kids' movie -- bland and inoffensive at best. If I didn't have a young niece and nephew to take to movies, I never would have gone to see it. That would have been a shame, because it turns out it's a much smarter movie than it ...

Re: What Do You Mean Yours Doesn't Do That?

Depends a lot on the location and whether it's a chain. The closer you get to campus or to the mall, the likelier you are to see restaurants staffed by people who don't have the same national origin as the cuisine. And Mexican food is so common that you'll see people of all ethnicities working in Me...

Re: MST3K, Rifftrax, & sundry

MST3K: The Comic is out, and it's high concept as fuck. It feels very much like a Joel project, in that it throws a lot of stuff at the wall and a lot of it comes out feeling like it's unnecessary and doesn't quite work but it's nonetheless really fascinating. I haven't decided how I feel about it o...
