What is going on with the current trend of lists disclosing what’s on [insert political figure]’s ipod? It’s so very shallow. A number of political consultants are sitting around Washington working up these lists. It’s ridiculous. Didn’t Apple drop the “What’s on your ipod?” business a couple of years ago?

Oh, I’m sorry, were you under the impression that Condoleeza Hausshvarze is letting some jackass from The Independent or Bono Vox poke around with her ipod in the unlikely event she owns such a device for anything other than Bush’s-mountain-biking-adventure-style photo ops?

I keep thinking about how my dream candidate would respond to certain questions:

Q: Mr. Farnsworth, what’s on your ipod?
A: I’m 51. I don’t have an ipod. I’ve got better things to do than listen to records all day.

Don’t get me started about National Review‘s list of 50 conservative rock songs. Jesus, don’t they research anything at all? Every time you read “end of the Cold War”, remember the song was about how the most of the world was awakening from a long dark period (or trying: June 9, 1989) but we were stuck with religion and voodoo economics. Now with our 80’s Retro executive branch, we can add voodoo foreign policy to that list.
