SENATE: GEORGIA

This week the National Review’s Eliana Johnson had a big scoop when she reported on a leaked internal memo from Georgia Democratic Senate hopeful Michelle Nunn.

Nunn, who comes from a Georgia political family, is seen as a strong candidate and the main reason Georgia is now one of the few, and top, seats Democrats think they can turn in November.

Gag Baby Gag: The Clinton Police State Cometh

Critics 'should neither be allowed nor enabled' to speak ill of Hillary
Chelsea Clinton Graduates From Oxford University, Britain - 10 May 2014

Political journalists are going to love the Hillary Clinton presidency. Judging by the way Team Clinton has responded to a series of books that are critical of the elderly homeowner and her philandering husband, it will be a real treat to cover them in the White House (again).

According to Politico, for example, public relations representatives for the Clinton family have issued a joint statement condemning the recent publication of “trashy” books by Ed Klein, Daniel Halper, and Ronald Kessler, all of which reflect less than favorably on the Clintons. The spokesmen condemned the “despicable” authors, arguing that “their behavior should neither be allowed nor enabled,” and called on “legitimate media outlets” to promptly censor them.

As world-renowned data scientist Nate Silver explains: “Democrats Are Way More Obsessed With Impeachment Than Republicans.” For example, nearly every time the word “impeachment” has been entered into the Congressional record this month, a Democrat said it.

Surely the wingnuts at Fox News have been using the I-word more often than the intellectual pundits at MSNBC, right?

Oh.

The Movie Star Is Dead. Long Live the Age of Brands

Guardians of the Galaxy, hitting theaters near you in a few short hours, is really good. I’m under embargo, but I don’t think the studio will get too terribly upset if I tell you that I think it’s the best movie of the summer.*

And it’s the best movie of the summer in large part because of Chris Pratt, who you may know as the lovable goofball/dimwit Andy on Parks and Rec. He’s just perfect in Guardians: funny, at ease doing action, kind of bro-tastic with just a hint of smarmy charm. If this movie had come out two decades ago, he’d be in line to become a Will Smith/Tom Cruise-style star.

This is what Christopher Rosen is getting at in a piece headlined “Thanks to Guardians of the Galaxy, Chris Pratt Is Our Next Giant Movie Star.” And I don’t really disagree with anything Rosen writes in his analysis, exactly. But the problem is that Chris Pratt can’t be our next giant movie star. We simply live in a post-movie-star world.

I hate the New York Yankees. All right-thinking Americans do.

That said, it’s hard not to have respect (if not grudgingly) for the captain, Derek Jeter.

Jeter is enjoying his final professional season and, as tradition dictates for a player who is an automatic Hall of Fame inductee, he is being celebrated at every ballpark he visits for his final game there.
