this weekend has lots of fun stuff. some new yorker festival events. some open house new york events. finally, FINALLY seeing august osage county this weekend.
and i'm nervous for the debates. i'm nervous she'll somehow pull it out. i'm nervous biden will gaffe. i'm nervous he won't call her out on her gibberish. i'm nervous he will and people will decry his bully-dom. and she can't name a single paper she reads. if you actually read newspapers, you KNOW which ones you read. i know which ones i read, which order i read them and with what regularity. yet, somehow, she reas "all of them" and still didn't know what the bush doctrine was. this woman is not for real. when is christopher guest going to come out and tell us this is just another of his mockumentaries?
this made me laugh: Gooch speculates on how she would answer if asked how she spells her name:
Oh, you know... pretty much the way you would. It's a very common name, you know, not -- I mean a lot of people have heard one like it. I spell it the same way I always, the way my mother taught me, just like you and everybody else. There's this, you know, crazy perception that we, Alaska, you know we spell just like everyone does. It's not this strange foreign country unlike Washington. But, you know, like, I, you know, I get it--this gotcha journalism we all have to deal with these days. Plus, you know I can see that Russian guy in the morning from where I live. Nkay?
