The Week That Was

1202396124Chronicling the past week via quick links and pithy commentary (Farewell Mitt, hello Paris edition)

It was over before it even really started: Our moderate technocratic ex-governor’s run to the White House is no more. Fortunately, there’s still time to enjoy what’s left of varmint season.

The final pander: This is why no one took him seriously.

The Super Bowl was last week? First came the shock, then the blame, and finally, anger.

Paris takes Boston: It’s, like, hot or something.


The Harvard Crimson: Not that funny. OK, this was funny.

We were all about Super Tuesday: Hillary was spinning before the polls closed, and Bob Dole even made a surprise appearance.


The fallout, Part I: Romney says he’s still in.

The fallout, Part II: Clinton carries Massachusetts, but not Boston. Romney gets a nice parting gift.

The fallout, Part III: Three days later, we’re still not sure who’s winning for the Dems; but we’d stay up late to listen to Obama.

And the parties: We hit ’em all.


It’s about time, Comcast: Have you ever tried to watch Big Baby in low-definition?

That’s just Bill O’Reilly being Bill O’Reilly: It’s got to be exhausting though.


Time for another episode of the Hill and the Hall: The T is wicked broke.

Roger Clemens vs. Brian McNamee: It’s kind of hard to take sides in this one.

That’s all for this week. If you need us we’ll be drowning our sorrows in our Mitt mitts.
