Live GOP Debate Coverage - Heck No, Opinion

Live GOP Debate Coverage - Heck No, Opinion

Romney looks nauseated
Or like a corpse

Perry is bottom fishing for votes attacking Paul
Santorum seems not worth attacking
I have never seen anyone project less leadership ability
He is inarticulate

Huntsman is weirdly OK
Dead in the water

Ron Paul speaks some truth about war and race
And the audience is silent
All the audience seems to care about is gotcha

Opinion:  The church can say what marriage is
At present it acts as a shill for the state
The state has no business legislating marriage
Clergy have no business acting for the state
Civil unions can be anything
No no one articulates this

Romney looks better when speaking than when acting as though he is interested
However listening away if I had to choose I would take Huntsman
over Romney without one hesitation
Romney is delivering canned statements
Huntsman gives a sense of having actually thought

Romney is growing noses

"Sto Perigiali" One of the Surpassingly Best Tunes Theodorakis Has Written

A Setting for a Poem "Denial" Beloved by the Greek People by the Nobel Prize Winning Poet Giorgos Seferis
The remarkable video at the link above is of a performance of "Sto perigiali" Mario Frangoulis and Mikis Theodorakis in 2001.

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …

Obama Ads Should Be Grass Roots Cinema Verite

ShortFormContent at Blogger: How President Obama Can Win Christian Conservatives:

'via Blog this'

To counter the invidious efforts of Karl Rove and the Brothers Koch, simple videos of everyday people expressing gratitude for specific results from specific things that the President has achieved will create a signature response that will turn the tables on the Super PACs.

There could be an intro that flags lies distortions and anonymous attacks as unreal and even criminal and a cut to what is real, recognizable and not anonymous I am (name). I have lived here in (name) for (time). Thanks to (President Obama's (name) Act ... and so forth for ten seconds. Close with a continuation of the story narrated over evocative images and simple acoustic music.

This would be a fantastic way to counter the attacks on the President. For every specific attack, a video that shows the truth. And grass roots people who intend to vote for the President.
