Croc Hits 4 Jesus
Interesting piece by columnist and radio talk show host Colin McEnroe on how the Hartford Courant tanked for Connecticut’s insurance industry when it came time to review Michael Moore’s Sicko.
He also put a headline I wish I’d thought of on the photo he posted of Bush wearing Crocs with socks (the latter tastefully decorated with the presidential seal awarded to him by the Supreme Court) and a to-die-for little cap with a black Scotty embroidered upon it.
Am I starting to sound like Maureen Dowd here? I am, but I can live with that.
Back to the headline: It’s “I'm the Commuter! Of Scooter!” As to my own headline on this posting, it probably sounds like nonsense to you. Which explains why you’re not on the Supreme Court.

Oh, Jerry, you'll never cut the mustard (or want to) when it comes to competing with Maureen "elephant ears" Dowd. If you don't know what I'm talking about, the Rude Pundit or Avedon Carol could tell you all about it the elephant ears thing-it's a little bit raunchy. And while we're talking about Avedon, she's got a nice tribute to up on her blog to James Martin Capozzola of the Rittenhouse Review who sadly just left us.
Which ties in nicely with the complaints about the Courant's film reviewer.
Capozzola's "Alpha Girls" post won all kinds of awards back in 2002 but until today I'd never read it. But it's a powerful and important piece of blogging work that covers the kind of things I've never considered.
The left blogsphere is getting some of our own Alphas and Betas, the blogs HP and FDL come to mind-that's why this is below the fold.
But we owe Avedon some links as she's been linking to you guys while I've been sitting on my ass because I check Technorati. Well anyway, we owe Avedon a few links. But that's not the point.
Don't miss that Alpha Girls post. Reading it before I clicked on your link broadened my understanding of how this stuff works and your link to the Courant piece helped me understand Nancy Johnson and the people who suck up to her and people like her a lot better than I normally ever would have before today.
Whew! I can't believe I just wrote all that. Maybe I need to start back blogging.
Looking at the picture you linked to, I'd say that Bush is developing more of a pot than you'd expect on a 61 year old guy that works out as much as he claims to. My guess is he's lying about those workouts the way he lies about everything else.
Crocs with socks "kinda gay"? How does this McEnroe guy pick his epithets? No gay man would wear anything of the sort. Not even in Connecticut.
Hey, what do I know? I'm from Connecticut too (so's Dubya). I had to Google crocs to find out what the hell they were. Now if I were from San Francisco, like some I could mention…
If you were from San Francisco, you'd know gay men have better fashion sense than that.
Now, gay women might wear such a thing...
