THE FOOD OF LOVE
Click on image for info.
We’ve listed movies; now how about music? I’m not all Bonnie Rait and Eric Clapton. DogMan, who was a musician in a former life (w/wife #1), has introduced me to gypsy jazz. He fires up the Bose every morning and plays it for hours. He’s learning gypsy guitar, too. On one of his CDs is this enchanting piece by Maurizio Geri called Sogno di Valzer. I’m sorry that the recording quality here is not very good; it simply does not do it justice.
What are you listening to?

1. Paper Moon (1973)
2. Stalag 17 (1953)
3. Reckless (1984)
4. Choose Me (1984)
5. It’s A Wonderful Life (1946)

DI-VESTED CHARLES TO REMARRY
I couldn’t care less what Princes Charles does. I had some empathy for Princess Di since she married very young truly in love with Charles while truly believing he was truly in love with her. As we have since learned, while Charles was grimly and obediently plodding to the altar to marry Di, he was yearning to be Camilla’s tampon. He carried on shamelessly with Camilla, whom Di had nicknamed The Rottweiler, all through his sham-of-a-marriage. Di was, in essence, a prisoner in a castle; while she was chained to propriety, he was not.
All of Britain is atwitter with the news that Chuck and Camilla will marry. The Uppercrust Queen, Tina Brown, was chit-chatting with that King of Retro-cool, Don Imus, this morning. Once again, thanks to LoanCat, I’ve got the bytes for you.
Tina dishes on Camilla and Charles: A “wildly horny relationship.” They’d go off into the bushes and he’d return with “grass stains on his back.”
Tina disses Di: “She would not play the game.” She was “a professional hysteric.” Yuk yuk yuk.
I have to admit that I laughed at the Camilla clip. And here I left a comment on LifelikePundits about being more careful about such things. Y'know, being sensitive?
PUTTING THE BYTE INTO NEWS

Another Memo ... Another Phony Smoking Gun
Overblown memos that don't say what the leftwing media say they say seems so 2004 to me. Frankly, I've grown pretty damn tired of this garbage.

What looks like G sprouting horns is actually a spent shell from the guy who was shooting next to her. She said she kept getting pinged. It didn't interfere with her shooting, though.
How old is G now? Here she is on her wedding day, 7/17/99.
How old is G today?

LOVEABLE LITTLE FUZZBALL UPDATE
Rush slams Democrats, receives cheers
Preaching optimism and slamming Democrats, conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh was greeted like a rock star by a packed San Jose Civic Auditorium audience Tuesday night.
``We are in the midst of a seminal historic shift in this country,'' Limbaugh, 54, told a crowd that paid $40 a ticket and welcomed him with a standing ovation. ``The Democrat party and the media have lost their monopoly. They don't rule the roost anymore.''
He told the 2,700 in the audience they had nothing to fear from Sen. Hillary Clinton and an ineffective Democratic Party, while tossing out the Clinton name almost as frequently as Bush used the word ``freedom'' in his January inaugural speech.
Most of the time Limbaugh's show follows Republican party lines, but the host got his biggest applause by questioning the administration's softness on illegal immigration.
He said he was afraid of ``the Republicans' failure to understand the American people's building rage on illegal immigration'' and feared that a third-party candidate, like Ross Perot, who would take a stronger stance, could split the party.
Other than that, the message was optimism.
He said he couldn't understand how people could see things negatively in a country where so much is possible.
``I'm doing better than ever before. Every year is better,'' he said, adding, ``I wish everything that has happened to me could happen to you.''
MONEY (THAT’S ALL I WANT)
Disclosure: Other than maybe their Lady Madonna, I am NOT a Beat-ulls fan. Never have been; never will be. If I hear Yellow Submarine when I die, I’ll know I’ve gone to hell. So what better way to needle the Lefties’ mantra of “rich Republicans,” than with some crockamamie moldy has-been like Sir Paul. What is he now, like 70?
PAUL'S A $UPER RICH MAN NOW
That's the tune Paul McCartney is singing this week after earning an astounding $3.3 million for his 12-minute Super Bowl halftime performance, sources say. That's about $278,000 for every minute the ex-Beatle was onstage. NFL officials will not say what they paid McCartney, but knowledgeable advertising and media sources said the $3.3 million figure — first reported in Britain's Daily Mail — is in line with what other performers have been paid.
"Yes, it's an awful lot of money. But for what Paul did, which was restore the dignity of the Super Bowl, it was well worth it," one insider told The Post.
Dignity? Ex-keeeeeewz me?
Our AnkleBitingPundits buddies are excited about a new media merger:
Peter Daou ran John Kerry’s blog outreach during the 2004 campaign and now runs the Daou Report. Salon.com is an ultra-lefty webzine.
I wasn’t around much yesterday … shelling out $$ on the car … so I missed all the excitement at Pat’s Brainster blog. But it’s not too late. Surf over there and chech it out, and while you’re there wish Pat a speedy recovery from the flu.
Lefty Bloggers on Gay Witchhunt
The big story in the lefty blogs today, getting easily as much attention over there as the Eason Jordan story on the right part of the blogosphere, is the supposed revelation that Talon News Reporter Jeff Gannon is gay. Don't have a clue as to whether it's true or not and couldn't care less. IIRC, I did link to Talon News once or twice over at KH, but I didn't kid myself that it was anything more than a seat-of-the-pants operation, and I don't particularly care what Mr Gannon (or whatever his name is; there is some dispute over that as well) does in his spare time or who he does it with.
And his UPDATE:
Okay, lot of comments on that post from the left. Why don't I care about Gannon's treason? Why don't I care that he got press credentials under an assumed name? Why don't I care about his prostitution business? Why don't I care that the GOP funded his employer?
And another UPDATE
And check out the comments! Boy, did Pat hit a Leftie nerve!

ELIOT & HILLARY CLOBBER PATAKI IN NEW POLL
The poll also found Democrat Clinton beating Rudy Giuliani should the former mayor try to take her on in 2006. Giuliani would top Spitzer, however, in a run for governor, the poll found.
Giuliani, believed to be eyeing a run for the White House in 2008, has not shown any interest in running for the Senate or governor in 2006.
In possible Senate races, Clinton tops Pataki 58 percent to 32 percent, and is ahead of Giuliani 52 percent to 43 percent.
GOP TARGETS HILLARY ONLINE
Gov. Pataki's chief political guru, Arthur Finkelstein, is planning to launch a new "Stop Her Now" Web site designed to help defeat Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton in next year's election, it was learned yesterday.
The site could draw millions of dollars in anti-Clinton campaign cash from across the nation, a state GOP source said. StopHerNow.com and StopHerNow.org are owned by Patrick Donohue, a longtime political aide to Pataki.

France Calls for Fresh Start in Relations with U.S.
PARIS (Reuters) - France wants a fresh start in relations with the United States and both sides have much to contribute to a renewed transatlantic partnership, Foreign Minister Michel Barnier said in comments published Monday.
He made the remarks before a visit to Paris Tuesday by Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice aimed in part at repairing ties damaged by the U.S.-led war in Iraq, which France opposed.
"The moment has come for a fresh start in our relations," Barnier said in an interview with the French daily Liberation which was conducted late last week.
France was encouraged by the election in Iraq on Jan. 30 and by a "renewed determination" in Bush's efforts over the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Barnier said.

BOY, 4, TAKES CAR FOR A SPIN
SAND LAKE, Mich. — A 4-year-old boy hopped into his mom's car in the middle of the night and drove to the video store. And back.
Although he was unable to reach the accelerator, the boy managed to put the car in gear, and the idling engine provided enough power to take him slowly to the store, a quarter-mile away, at 1:30 a.m. Friday, police said. Finding the store closed, the youngster began the slow trip back home.
But the vehicle, weaving and with its headlights off, got the attention of police Sgt. Jay Osga, who first thought he was following a driverless car.
The car turned into the boy's apartment complex and struck two parked cars, then backed up and hit Osga's cruiser.

Are you headed for a divorce?
A new survey of 22 questions can give a clear indication of whose relationship is rock- solid — and whose marriage is ca reening to the rocks.
The survey is simple but perceptive — and it's based on what couples know and don't know about each other. And, not surprisingly, those who are most knowledgeable about their partners' likes, dislikes, interests and hobbies are most likely to enjoy the married life.
Most important for couples is maintaining a good friendship, said Dr. John Gottman of Washington University, who created the test after studying couples for more than 20 years.
Yes, you read that right: JERSEY!
DATING IS HOTTER IN . . . JERSEY?
Sophisticated singles who insist New York City's the best place to date are in for a shock. It turns out Jersey City's much better.
In a survey of America's best cities for dating for 18-to-24-year-olds, the Big Apple ranks 18th out of 80. Jersey City's No. 11.

The End of Their Love Affair
Folks will recall the numerous and obnoxious public displays of affection between John Kerry and John Edwards during the 2004 president campaign. They always seems a bit contrived, no? Well if John Edwards' recent remarks in New Hampshire have any hidden meaning, it appears as though that particular love affair is headed for splitsville.
Anybody here ever watch her show Growing Up Gotti? Real waste of time, wasn’t it. Almost makes me feel sorry for Carlo.
ALMOST 30 years after actor Gianni Russo wed the daughter of Don Corleone in "The Godfather," he's disillusioned over his on-screen courtship with another godfather's daughter, Victoria Gotti. Russo, who played treacherous Carlo in "The Godfather," will be seen in "Growing Up Gotti" tonight, showering Victoria with roses, chocolates and even an impromptu love song in a crowded restaurant. But Russo is unhappy. "I think people need to know that she is not a nice person," he told us. "She is one of the most arrogant and mean-spirited people I have ever met, and I cannot believe that I was romantically attracted to her for so long. Meeting her was enough to put out any romantic fire inside me."
