“[T]here’s no better training ground for politics than motherhood.”
-Sarah Palin, in Going Rogue
i feel like–maybe–we ought to ask Hilary what she thinks on that. maybe sexy sarah thinks that because she went and had five kids because the Bible told her to do her husband’s bidding and not to use any contraception and lost control of her home… but let’s humor her and briefly compare motherhood and politics. the old joke about politicians and diapers notwithstanding, how the fuck could she seriously make that comparison??
i need one of two things to happen: she needs to retire to Alaska and never be heard from again, or become a pariah in American media, held up for ridicule and for laughs. by everybody, not just the Left.

jezebel always has an insightful analysis of the new Mad Men episodes the day after they air. obviously, they pay special attention to the portrayal of the women in the show, the situations they’re in, what their options are, how they react and what they were or might have been thinking. i always like reading those after seeing the episode.
this past episode was quite good.
the one question that i remember having after watching it was the scene at the end, when Roger confronts Don after seeing him in an awkward moment with Jane. Roger says that it’s dangerous to act too happy, saying that when one does it, it essentially makes him a target. Don says that Roger isn’t actually happy, he’s just pretending to be (or something to that effect.) shortly thereafter, Don walks by Roger and Jane slowly swaying on the dance floor after almost all the guests have left. Don walks past them and finds Betty out on the lawn and starts slowly swaying with her. i’m still trying to figure out whether that means that Don is also just pretending to be happy (more probable) or if both men are as happy as they can be, considering the time and their options.
anyhow, if you like Mad Men as much as i do, you’ll wanna keep up with these.
(here‘s the previous one, it’s about the same episode as the first one.)

i know there’s a joke about the connection between the conservative baby-machines that shop at Wal-Mart and the call here, but my weekend brain isn’t quite making the connection here…
