Open Mic September 21
In celebrity news, we were all shocked — shocked — to find that Fiona Apple Maggart is following Willie Nelson’s career (and pharmacological) arc. She and her bandmates were busted for less than five grams. That must be some powerful stuff. Expect to see Apple playing to packed houses in Washington State and Colorado as she stocks up and Buys American Made to boot. Legal marijuana, same-sex marriage, Elizabeth Warren, Tammy Baldwin, Claire McCaskill, and Barack Obama are all up in the polls. Governor Susana Martinez (R-New Mexico) and former Governor Mitt Romney both find that “forcible rape” and “maker” vs “moocher” class warfare are two topics best left to professionals. Maybe Romney can find a third career as a Rom[ney]-Com star. Their colleagues make like Tonto and Peter and the IM Secretary’s tape and disavow any knowledge. Are they also self-destructing? Let’s discuss it here.
