    LOS ANGELES — I doubt that President Obama is about to sit down at the end of this year and tell Oprah Winfrey that he is giving himself a B-plus as he did just a year ago. He may deserve a great deal more credit than voters gave him last November, but you can’t brag about being a party leader whose party was clobbered and a commander-in-chief stubbornly pursuing victory in a winless, pointless war.

  • Quote of the Day: ‘Consider Christmas Pudding’

    The Atlantic Wire – Tue Dec 21, 5:42 pm ET

    WASHINGTON, DC – “Only a bedrock of latent intoxication and seasonal greed can convince an ordinary person that what they need after bloodymarysmokedsalmonchampagnewineturkeyroastpotatoessprouts carrotsgravywinecranberrysaucesausageshambaconwinewinewine is a mound of sticky, cloacal, saccharine sludge sloshed in alcohol butter, but back we come every year. Between the idea and the reality falls the pudding.”The pudding seems to have had two principal forerunners. The first were the earliest mince pies, which saw cooked, shredded meat, dried fruits, alcohol with its preservative qualities and perhaps a few spices or herbs, all encased in large pies. These were mainly bulwarks against winter, the hoarded dregs of more plentiful seasons. The second main Ur-pudding was a pottage or soup called frumenty, a fast dish involving cracked wheat, currants and almonds which was ladled out at the start of a meal. Subsequently, people baked this into a kind of pie, adding breadcrumbs for bulk, eggs to bind it, and upping the dried fruits. They then called it plum pudding, ‘plum’ meaning dried grape or raisin.”- Oliver Thring, writing in The Guardian’s Word of Mouth blog Full Story »

  • Next Up on Bailouts: Portugal?

    The Atlantic Wire – Tue Dec 21, 5:39 pm ET

    WASHINGTON, DC – Tuesday, Moody’s, the credit rating agency, put the Portugese debt “on review for a possible downgrade.” Recent bailouts for Ireland and Greece have made international markets increasingly nervous about Portugal, causing “the cost of insuring Portuguese sovereign debt against default” to rise and the euro to fall slightly, Reuters reports. Though thus far Moody’s does not doubt the stability of Portugal’s banks, the decision to put the country on review stems from concerns for Portugal’s “longer-term economic vitality.” Full Story »

    • Is a Good Teacher Worth $400,000?

      The Atlantic Wire – Tue Dec 21, 5:26 pm ET

      WASHINGTON, DC – Over the course of a school year, a good teacher produces $400,000 more in future earnings for a class of 20 students than an average teacher. What’s more, replacing the worst-performing five to eight percent of teachers with average teachers could catapult the U.S. to near the top of international math and science rankings, padding GDP by $100 trillion and generating returns that dwarf “the discussions of U.S. economic stimulus packages related to the 2008 recession ($1 trillion).” Full Story »

    • Happy Hour Vid: Larry King Sings About ‘Early Show’ Host’s Eyes

      The Atlantic Wire – Tue Dec 21, 5:10 pm ET

      WASHINGTON, DC – In an interview on CBS’s The Early Show this week, anchor Erica Hill got more than she probably expected while asking Larry King about his many marriages. The newly retired CNN host responds simply enough that he’s loved three people in his life. The short answer then unravels into an explanation of how people in the broadcast news business are not normal, King asks Hill how crazy she thinks she is, what kinds of weird things she thinks about, and the reveals that he is thinking about her “beautiful brown eyes.” And then he sings about them.

    • SEC Investigates HP Chief’s Mysterious Departure

      The Atlantic Wire – Tue Dec 21, 4:36 pm ET

      WASHINGTON, DC – The S.E.C. has launched an investigation of Mark Hurd’s resignation as CEO of Hewett-Packard, The Wall Street Journal reports. Hurd’s surprise departure in August, not long after a female contractor filed a sexual harassment complaint against him, transpired in a fog of uncertainty. Why did HP’s board of directors ask Hurd–often lauded as a highly competent corporate chief–to step down, many asked, especially after an internal investigation concluded that Hurd didn’t violate the company’s sexual harassment policy? Then, in September, a settled lawsuit allowed Hurd to become co-president of rival Oracle, a move HP had long attempted to stonewall in an effort to protect its trade secrets. It appeared the month-long corporate drama was winding down. Full Story »

    • Words of the Year: Right, Left and Populist

      The Nation – Tue Dec 21, 2:31 pm ET

      The Nation — For decades now, there’s been a gap between the left’s and the right’s ability to talk populist. Liberals tend to trip over their own subtlety, uncertainty and/or ambivalence (an example of which youmaybe just read), while the right produces categorical words that stick: media elite, death tax, and of course Democrat as an adjective, emphasis on rat.  Full Story »
