"Africa is, indeed, coming into fashion." - Horace Walpole (1774)


organizing skills of which he dare not speak

Because I enjoy snark, most days I watch Politico.com's Playbook TV, a video podcast that covers current political events with a bit of mockery. Today's is pretty spectacular in that host James Kotecki manages to emphasize Barack Obama's community organizing skills and reference Sufjan Stevens with respect to Mitt Romney, so I thought I'd share it here:

You got the host to comment on your blog! Pretty exciting! haha

Hi, I'm Lindsey! I stumbled across your blog via Kat awhile back and have been reading since then. I saw someone on campus wearing a Baylor sweater today and thought "Oh, Texas in Africa." I figured that if I'm being reminded about the blog randomly, I should probably say hi. :) haha.

I <3 Sufjan and I really enjoyed this video...I think I'll have to check out this web site. Thanks :)
