You know what I want to see?

Monday, January 18th, 2010

I want to see a parody of one of those Broadview Security commercials. You know the ones … a woman is at home alone or with a small child when someone breaks into the home. The intruder runs away immediately, and the phone rings with the security company calling to see if everything’s ok.

Would you stop to answer the phone in that situation?

I want to see the woman pick the phone up, only to hear, “Hi, Marge? It’s Betty. I just heard that Liz and Barney are getting divorced, and …”

Meanwhile, the camera cuts the to the security company’s office, where we hear a busy signal over the image of a phone operator.

It’s the eighth of January

Top Democrats head for the exits.

Given the falling popularity of Congress, the fact that the health-care takeover that the Democrats are pushing through is heavily opposed by voters, and the fact that fewer people are self-identifying as Democrats these days, I think that’s a reasonable characterization.
