commented on Six Questions for the Girl With the Blue Green Hair Who Walked Around Our Block 100 Times
Is it me, or is Dan frequently drawn towards vaguely spunky or eccentric young women? I'm thinking short-haired, ukulele playing YouTubers he's promoted over the years. Would he have done a double feature on a 63 year old lady doing the same project? I don't know. (I'm not saying this as a critique, just an observation. An interpretation might give us some additional insight into one of our local celebrities.)
Also, following off of Anna @3, the phenomenon of young women, even up to the age of 33, referring to themselves as "girls," seems worthy of some sociology dissertation. Maybe that's what the TV show Girls was commenting on, I don't know because I haven't watched it.

From his Senate bio: "...following graduation he attended Heartland Baptist Bible College in Oklahoma City in preparation for mission work in Uganda". I can't figure out how any of this could be true, given that he received such a thorough Biblical education; the Lord works in mysterious ways. On the bright side, I'm sure the folks at Heartland are performing a thorough religious audit, and questioning their core theological and pedagogical assumptions, to make sure this doesn't happen again.
commented on Fill Out the White House's Dumb Form: "Share Your Obamacare Disaster Story"
@2, I was healthy too, and make decent money so I didn't get any subsidies. It seemed like a waste to pay so much each month when I never met my deductible. Then I got a series of 3 random, unrelated ailments over the course of two years, and what do you know, I am using my insurance and have not had to declare bankruptcy. I think that is actually how insurance is supposed to work.
