NYT DROPS BOMBSHELL ON INAUG. EVE: Literally nothing in life is funnier than when a web editor takes the last name of columnist/blogger Charles Blow and places it alongside a headline or teaser that suggests something sexual or drug-related, as this one does. Name one thing that is funnier than this. UPDATE: Ken was going to write this exact same post but with this pretty illustration depicting the Times’ virulent hatred of black people. [NYT]

    Speaking of, can I get Barry’s number cuz, I’ve got some inauguration parties to tend to tomorrow night…it’s going to be exhausting after working all day…you think you could hook me up?

    Last names first… Obama sells blow, Kristol the war president, Krugman performs voodoo for/on banks?

    Funnier than this?
    Hitchens on the day Jerry Falwell died; “If you gave the man an enema you could bury him in a match box”.
    For that I will always love Hitch. Still makes me cry.

    I knew he was the magic unicorn to come delivery from a lack of drugs the last couple days. Except for yesterday, and now that I think of it except for today too.

    Many people try to situate themselves at the nexus of Bush and Blow (Such as that eponymous American, Tony Montana), only to have it all fall lifeless after the introduction of “my little friend”.

    Not only is Charles M. Blow hilariously unaware of the connotations of his name as well as various social phenomena, according to his NYT biography “Mr. Blow graduated magna cum laude from Grambling State University in Louisiana.” And I think we all know that Blow and G[r]ambling are closely connected…

    This doesn’t surprise me. You didn’t think Obama really had that huge campaign war chest from people giving him a few bucks here and there, did you?

    Blow had a piece on cocaine last week and I laffed at the irony. As to the Lincoln wouldn’t like Barry piece, man I was skeptical but it was good.
