Things we talked about here over the weekend.

If a retired Supreme Court Justice is going to publish an essay in a classy literary tabloid, he should do better than this.

If an erudite Kenyan goes on a lesser Sunday talking heads show, he needs to call bullshit.

Don't let your bleeding heart bleed for geese.

And by "bleeding heart," I mean Dane County (as in Madison), but you Danes (as in Denmark) have problems of your own, even if that bleeding-heart radio organization thinks you are the exemplars of happiness.

Black Friday shopping links for Althouse-tested items.

I'm a snob about what I'll drink but I defend your right to drink what the government is prying from your numb, shaky hands.

Irradiating irrationality.

Oh, those young people, so irony-oriented and lameness-avoidant... how it hurt to fall in love with Obama!

If you want respect, don't demand it from teenagers.

This is the time... this is the moment... for pie!

At my house, we talked about how to get dress pants for the boy. I found some -- he has an unusual build -- at Macys for $50 -- the only pair in the whole store that fit him.

Then we went to Mt. Horeb and found a pair for $4 at the Bargain Nook! Woo Hoo! Time for a Macys return.

I was listening to Air America program in the morning about how young people were all left-wing idealists and hated the Tea Party. Oh and 99% of tea partiers are old white men.

One thing we talked about this weekend:

Obama-Biden will win easily in 2012.

There is no hope for the GOP:

- Possible candidates will not run.
- Media loves us (see Chris Matthews interest in Palin to create easy road for us).
- We cannot lose to Palin.

I disagree. While the standard for articles in the NYRoB is to use the book as a jumping off point for a canned essay of one's own, here Justice Stevens merely wrote a book review.
