Good Week

Revolution: This new fall NBC show premiered last Monday night. It was a very solid start. Yes, it’s another post-apocalyptic drama, but this one, thus far, is striking a nice balance of mystery with interesting characters. The gorgeous and elaborate sets look big budget. I only hope they can avoid the absurdity of Lost and the snail’s pace suffered by Heroes (second season). And please, please producers, don’t make this a love story… the psychological and sociological elements are so much more interesting. One last request, more plot lines for the Google guy!

Tammy Baldwin: Tammy Baldwin stepped down from her Congressional seat in Wisconsin to run for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Herb Kohl. If she wins, she will be the first openly gay person elected to the U.S. Senate. In a state that has been crawling with the likes of Scott Walker and growing increasingly conservative in the last decase, it certainly looked like a long-shot. Over the last week, however, as Mitt Romney has not only shot himself in the foot, but blown off his whole leg and the blast pattern has begun to reach other Republican candidates. According to CNN, Romney is dragging WI Republican Senate candidate Tommy Thompson down with him and we have seen an 18 point shift in popularity. Tammy was 9 down 30 days ago and this week she is 9 points up. Go Mitt! Keep talking.

Bad Week

Mitt Romney: I don’t have to have to rant about his faults, he’s showing them all just fine on his own. I am looking forward to November 7 when we won’t have to hear his name so often. I predict an embarrassing loss. If there was an independent alternative for all the reasonable Republicans (and yes, I do believe there are many), this guy wouldn’t get 40% of the vote.

The NFL:  I was going to title this section “NFL referees” but it’s not their fault. These people have been thrown into a difficult position. They are filling in for a job that requires years and years of experience to do well. But now they are beginning to effect the outcome of the entire season. The calls are that bad. The BAD goes on the NFL and its executives who have not found a way to settle this lock-out. You better do it soon friends or this entire season will require an asterisk next to the results.
