After the awards – the Slumdog kids got a trip to Disneyland. Faves!

… at least the GOP thinks so.
Can prayer’s save the economy?
South Carolina’s governor is offering prayers instead of stimulus funds to his state:
On C-SPAN’s Washington Journal this morning, Sanford received a call from a Charleston resident who said he lost his job because he has been taking care of mother and sister, both of whom have serious illnesses. The caller told Sanford he is “wrong” to decline the money. “A lot of people in South Carolina are hurting. And if this money can come and help us out we need it.” In response, Sanford could offer him only his prayer.
Dumb. Plain stupid. Forget the whole part that the federal government is actually throwing money at your state Gov. Sandford – free money – just take it, like an allowance. But just forget that. Remember the people that actually need the money. The one’s who are losing their jobs and their insurance. Unable to put their kids through school, get food on the table, buy clothes, pay the mortgage. Yeah, remember them? Don’t they deserve a little bit more than prayers? Yeah, think about that for a second. Then try again.
James Carville is writing a new book about the changing demographics of the Democratic party – aka the incoming Millennials
The book — whose title is “40 More Years: How the Democrats Will Rule the Next Generation” — is largely a tract about how demographic shifts portend a lasting Democratic ascendancy, Carville said. But Carville — a longtime close friend of both Clintons — offered some tantalizing hints about other parts of the book, confirming that he’d also delve into sensitive aspects of the Hillary campaign.
Hurrah! More research for my thesis! And from James Carville no less – circa 1992 hott, circa 2009 not!
