You Can Levin Your Hat On

I watched the debate over the Florida/Michigan delegates yesterday on MSNBC. For some reason there was a live audience that was permitted to clap and cheer at any point, which I thought was bizarre and added to the goat-rodeo feel of the event itself.

Carl Levin gave a red-faced rant towards seating the Michigan delegates in full, and I have to admit that he made some good points about the principle of why Michigan moved their primary date and why they should allow their votes to be counted. Except for that the committee members kept coming back to the fact that there were no other candidates on the Michigan primary ticket aside from Hillary.

It kind of reminded me of the exchange in A Few Good Men when Tom Cruise's character, Kaffee, is practicing his interrogation of the medical examiner with his fellow cohort Sam:

              KAFFEE
Doctor, other than the rope marks, was
there any other sign of external damage?

SAM
No.

KAFFEE
No scrapes?

SAM
No.

KAFFEE
No cuts? Bruises? Broken bones?

SAM
No.


KAFFEE
Doctor, was there any sign of violence?

SAM

You mean other than the dead body?

KAFFEE
Fuck!! I walk into that every goddamn time!

    Dammit, now I've got that Joe Cocker song stuck in my head. Great song, but not a lullaby.

    That's actually a great idea. Tabblo is perfect for such things.

    Also: Nice use of the lingo.
