Billie’s Quickies…Early week news predictions

bllieddoseThis week should be fascinating, what with the new Veteran death panel talk, @mccainblogette on The View, Chuck Todd gettin’ cold yelled at about Blackwater, the reality show dude who killed his ex allegedly committing suicide, and the continuing debate about what constitutes a “right” in America.

Well, here are my predictions as to what will make the news, along with some just plain interesting, cool, or weird linkage.

Best health care in the world, eh?

Politico Releases its Own Sexist Flesh List

pete

On the heels of the Playboy Hate F*** List controversy, you would think political blogs would have the sense to stay away from this kind of icky itemization.  Not Politico, which has released its own list of “The Hunks of Washington.” (ps Joanie Cunningham called, she wants part of that title back.)

When are men going to get the respect they deserve?  Why must Peter Orszag put up with being described as “so numbersy,” or Grover Norquist as “unyielding in his vision, in his mission,” or the kicker, Chuck Todd, a ““brainy guy poring over computer printouts.”  Why don’t they just stick these guys in Speedos and have them photographed washing Camaros?

Where’s the equality?
