I'm Not Sure Obama Wants to Hear Much About "Rebounds" Right Now

The Administration's always-happy-to-help friends over at Politico spat out a typical bit of "Obama's about to come roaring back, just you wait and see!" wishcasting this morning. It's a piece of no redeeming informational value whatsoever - just a bunch of Democratic Party hacks pushing pro-O soundbites with a couple of "Nuh-uh!"s from GOP types tacked on to the end - but author Glenn Thrush must be cringing over this line, in light of more recent events:

They see the makings of a serious potential rebound for Obama if he settles on steady message, the economy finally cooperates and Sarah Palin takes the presidential plunge.

(Yes, of course I saw it at Hot Air first.)

What the Frig is a Rajiv Vindaloo?

Because everyone keeps asking: No, I'm not Indian. No, I'm not making fun of Indians. It's from this ancient SNL skit. At some point in the distant past, some thread on here degenerated into a discussion of which skits were their favorites, back when the show was actually funny and not just a patronage scheme for Ruling Class attention whores. Someone mentioned this one, I needed a stupid name to post with, and you can't get much more stupider than "Rajiv Vindaloo". So there you go.

This actually is one of the best skits they ever did, if you ask me. This is from the underrated early-80s era, the only one that has had almost all records of its existence wiped off the face of the intertubes. Why? Because a) the network weasels at NBC have bots set up to file takedown claims with YouTube and the rest within five minutes of anyone uploading something with any SNL-related keyword in it, and b) Lorne Michaels is an egotistical Sucker of Cock. This is the period in which Dick Ebersol (not exactly a lovable guy himself - who at NBC is?) was running the show, so Lorne has seen to it that the SNL video archives over on NBC.com are a black hole from 1980-85. What a twat. And fuck you for coasting for a solid decade at this point. Enjoy your audience of 16-year-olds and Manhattan media bloggers.
