Paul Krugman of the New York Times had harsh words for Romney:
“I believe Mr. Romney when he says he isn’t concerned about the poor. What I don’t believe is his assertion that he’s equally unconcerned about the rich, who are “doing fine.” After all, if that’s what he really feels, why does he propose showering them with money? . . . Even conservative politicians used to find it necessary to pretend that they cared about the poor. Remember “compassionate conservatism”? Mr. Romney has, however, done away with that pretense. At this rate, we may soon have politicians who admit what has been obvious all along: that they don’t care about the middle class either, that they aren’t concerned about the lives of ordinary Americans, and never were.”

As I posted a couple days ago, McDonald’s has agreed to stop using “Pink Slime” in their burgers: “Jamie Oliver was totally disgusted to find out that McDonald’s used pink slime additive in its burgers. And several months after, Jamie Oliver finally won the battle, as McDonald’s has just announced it has decided to stop using pink slime additive in its burgers.”

Ever wonder what happened to the “Leave Britney (Spears) Alone” youtube guy? Well, there’s a really good documentary shown at Sundance not only about him, but also “the expanding era of internet fame — the odd paths people take to achieving it, and the ways it consumes lives much like traditional celebrity.”

One of my favorite comedians, John Mulaney, has a new special New in Town. It’s hysterical.
So the show Portlandia does a self-parody of their song “Dream of the 90’s” with a new song “Dream of the 1890s”.

I can’t wait for Hayao Miyazaki’s The Secret World of Arrietty. As Wired writes: the film’s “meditative exploration of life, death and the tiny people who live off the scraps of oblivious humans can enlighten an America embroiled in Occupy protests, class warfare and permissive militarism, if given the chance.”
