Timwatch 2/27

Tim this morning featured one of my favorite and one of my least favorite senators. The good: Joe Biden is super-cool. And he is from the lovely neighboring tax-free paradise that is Delaware. Oh, if only life were totally different and he were Secretary of State rather than Little Miss Look at My Fuck-Me Boots, Don't They Make You Scared? The badness is, of course, Rick Santorum. If you're not politically-minded, you may have hear of "Santorum" from Savage Love. If not, well, http://www.spreadingsantorum.com/ The weird thing was, Santorum was being really open and honest about the fact that the whole Social Security privatization thing is totally not economically feasible. And that he supports raising the retirement age. A lot. Um, Rick? Aren't you running for reelection to the Senate from the state of Pennsylvania, second only to Florida in the sheer frightening percentage of old people? Dude, they are so going to hear about that. Most of my generation is still in a hungover (or possible still-drunken) stupor when Meet the Press is on, Rick. It is totally the oldies who watch that shit, and unlike me they're not watching just because the think Tim rules.
