Where’s Jack?

Say it ain’t so. Rumors swirling that Cafferty File and Jack are off CNN’s Situation Room. Carol from Massachusetts will miss you, if it’s true. I loved being your frequent on-air babe since November 18, 2009. A 3-year affair.
Thanks for the memories.

70% of Americans said this was one of the most important elections ever. Jack Cafferty asked why? He read what I said, “The country has passed its tipping point. Both parties need to grapple with how to balance an aging and diverse population’s needs without going completely broke. If civility doesn’t replace sniping, the Mayans may have been onto something.”

Kudos to Axelrod, Messina, Plouffe. Brilliant tactical campaign. Let’s hope Obama picks just as strong a White House advisory team and Cabinet to lead us through the tough challenges of the next four years. Exhale. Bon Weekend.

Prez Pre-Bate

New York Times Magazine article on “The Mitt Romney Who Might Have Been”. If Mitt the Massachusetts moderate had a backbone and didn’t chronically capitulate to the Republican right, he may be a more appealing candidate.

Frank Bruni’s column “Trembling Before Mitt”, wonders which Mitt will show up at tonight’s debate. Success in primary contests was accomplished by his opponents’ lack of gravitas. Perry, Bachmann, Cain et al.

Jack Cafferty asked what Romney needs to do to win the first debate. He read on-air what I said:

Evening Joe

Joe the Flubber. Biden. As I said on the air last night on Cafferty, “Let Joe be Joe. Always off the rails, unfiltered. Yet, he is authentic.” Needs to get a grip, though.

Joe the Plumber. He wants to shoot people who come over the border. Joe Walsh called the President a liar. How did that work out? Joe Klein aka “Anonymous” Primary Colors says Paul Ryan lives in Libertarian Disneyland. Joe Scarborough of Morning Joe,  wants to tackle real issues. Why are we spending $Billions a day on tragically flawed wars? Joe Arpaio, from Springfield, MA, now AZ, in bed with Trumpster, still debating Obama’s birth certificate.

And my Joe’s. Grandfather, father, brother, nephew, cousins. All perfecto.

Mad Weekend

Fun weekend with Ogilvy‘s newest Account Executive. Congrats to Ben! A lucky client will be getting all of his attention. mAdBen took us on a tour of Ogilvy with its DonDraper-esque decor overlooking the Hudson. Later on MadMen TV, Maman Marie was naughty ZooBeeZoo. Those French Canadiennes, woo.

Dining not as exciting. Mario’s on Arthur Avenue in the Bronx is a scene from Sopranos’ central casting. If canned clams and stale pasta are authentic, then it is. Being with Betsey & Ben for lunch was molto bene. Flatiron’s Madison Park sublime on a mild sunny afternoon. Dinner at The Black Duck, not so much.

My favorite ‘mad’ journalist asked what the most useless college major is:

ZooBeeZoo

“A Little Kiss”.  Zou Bisou Bisou. How can MadMen top that act? Montreal Megan is all the buzz in our house. Other houses, too. SkooBeeDooBeeDoo.

Can’t hurry love. Sounds like the Supremes could sting ObamaCare. Harvard Law may win the SCOTUS show. JackCaff read my view of the future of Prez O’s bill. As soon as somebody can tell me what’s in it and what it does, I’ll let you know.

All the early Spring pollen is blowing unrequited billets-doux. Big Achoo.

Weekend Treks – Men Madness

Men. Men. Men. Men. Love them. Tiger2 under. Joey3 Sticks on the mend. Final4. Lots of games left. My Michigan State pick out. MadMen5. Finally.

“Would you vote for Joe Biden in 2016?” JackCaff read my snippy retort
Wow. Are we already so done with this year’s election we’re speculating on an even more boring race in 2016? Who would he run against, Bob Dole?    

Alec Baldwin lifted my Zzzomney coin on 30 Rock. Etch-a-Sketch will stick. Tebow. Payton. Peyton. Cool sports blog. Check it out. ‘Timmy & the Jets’.
