Endnotes (2/15/10)


Elle magazine has a new lit blog.

The 43 sexiest presidents, in order. The Bush 43 description is particularly great:

It's hard to separate politics from the image with the younger Bush, but lets be honest, if he had remained owner of the Texas Rangers, he would have been one of the sexiest businessmen in America. He's fun, spontaneous, obsessed with his body, and knows how to party. Bush is great one-night-stand material for all the same reasons that he was a terrible president.
I would have reversed numbers one and three on their list, but otherwise it seems right on.

Ezra Klein, one of my favorite bloggers, will be writing for Newsweek. Congrats!

This blog post is so weird that I don't even know what to say about it. (h/t Kate)

Alyssa presents a compelling argument that the American TV season should be shorter that also just makes me want to watch British crime shows.

I feel bad for Weir and Lysacek being set up into this "the talented one"/"the hardworking one" dichotomy, because I grew up with people saying that about me and my nextdoor neighbor in regards to music. Therefore (shockingly) I am on Team Lysacek, if we have to pick.

I am wary of all three of these books, but I will probably read them anyway.

This piece on casting the John Edwards Lifetime movie is made of awesome. And not just because it includes Bradley Whitford. (For Young, not Edwards.)

I have to say, I am rather looking forward to voting for this guy.

Did they plan this just for me? Colin Firth and Matthew Macfadyen (yes, Mr. Darcy and Mr. Darcy) are going to be in a WWII-era British political crime drama.

These Chinese love consultants are pretty interesting.

I love that sexiest presidents list. Andrew Johnson bears an uncanny resemblance to Tommy Lee Jones.


Also, John Kerry IS Andrew Jackson. Talk about uncanny...

Is that "save my marriage" blog post a joke?? Weird doesn't say the half of it...

Ha! the list of Presidents is quite amusing. I'd have gone for 1) Sam Seaborn (if we're including future/fictional ones!) 2) JFK 3) the young George W Bush (wow, had no idea I'd ever catch myself thinking that, but it's a good pic!) 4) Obama and erm, then everyone else in no particular order!

And Clinton. Obviously Clinton.
