GQ NAMES THE 20 BEST COCKTAILS IN AMERICA

November 20, 2008

The goodegg has quite a few clients and colleagues that are heading to the Inauguration in January.  Since I will not be joining them, I will celebrate by    trying the “Juliet and Romeo” from Obama’s hometown bar “The Violet Hour”.

In an opulent bar from another time, the J&R stands two heads and four shoulders above the rest. Think: gin, mint, cucumber, lime, bitters for accent, and a drop of rose water for elegance. Served up in a coupe glass.—andrew santella

Republican writer, Christine Todd Whitman, in todays Washington Post

November 14, 2008

The Washington Post graciously allowed Christine Todd Whitman and her ghost writer to say Nyah Nyah Nyah on their editorial page today, and it’s an immensely satisfying read.

Whitman really went out on a lonely GOP limb a couple of years ago by publishing It’s My Party Too, a book all about one of our favorite subjects, how the Republican Party will die if it keeps pandering to the Christian nutjobs. And she was right! So now she gets to say things like this:

Our central thesis was simple: The Republican Party had been taken hostage by “social fundamentalists,” the people who base their votes on such social issues as abortion, gay rights and stem cell research. Unless the GOP freed itself from their grip, we argued, it would so alienate itself from the broad center of the American electorate that it would become increasingly marginalized and find itself out of power.

At the time, this idea was roundly attacked by many who were convinced that holding on to the “base” at all costs was the way to go. A former speechwriter for President Bush, Matthew Scully, who went on to work for the McCain campaign this year, called the book “airy blather” and said its argument fell somewhere between “insufferable snobbery” and “complete cluelessness.” Gary Bauer suggested that the book sounded as if it came from a “Michael Moore radical.” National Review said its warnings were, “at best, counterintuitive,” and Ann Coulter said the book was “based on conventional wisdom that is now known to be false.”

What a difference four years makes — and the data show it.
