I have a feeling my post will be more off topic than on. I'm a bit burnt out by all the politics. I don't fault AC360 for the political focus on Wednesday's program. If they didn't rehash Pennsylvania I would have been shocked.
The day after each Primary is a bit like Groundhog Day(haven't I said that before?)....the same thing over and over. I could almost scream when I heard someone say we'll know more after Indiana. Weren't we supposed to know more after Pennsylvania? So forgive me if I gloss over the broadcast...but I doubt if anyone will be too upset.
• First up a report by Candy Crowley on Obama and HRC. I'm guessing as to the topic as my recording was very garbled and I missed almost the entire segment.
• Tonight's panel was Carl Bernstein, Gloria Borger and Jeffery Toobin. Anyone care what they talked about? Except for Toob I tuned out.
• What's a rehash of a primary without a look at the magic map?
• Bill Schneider was next up with more exit poll analysis. If you were following along you learned that North Carolina is not near Ohio. Oh good Lord I really hate when they dummy things down.
• Are Anderson's ties (or knots) getting fatter or is he just getting skinnier? I'm not loving the new look. And I guess I'm no different than those who comment on the Live Blog about his ties. But my excuse was boredom and the tie really started to bug me.
• Now we get to the good part of the program....Paul Begala and James Carville, two of my favorite Democrat strategists. Poor Jamal was outsmarted and out numbered and I'm sure he made no friends in Florida and Michigan when he said those citizen's votes don't count.
• Randi Kaye was next in line with a story on campaign funding. Yawn. I'm just not a bean counter at heart and hate budget talk.
There was an interesting read in Monday's Arizona Republic about the fundamental fashion of the FLDS women. I found it fascinating and thought some of you might also.
What the women wear and why
THE HAIR: Grown long in preparation for a belief that in heaven the wives will be asked to wash their husbands' feet with their hair.
THE STYLE: It's called "the face frame." Women are required to wear hair tied back, so as not to be considered vulgar or endeavoring to entice a man.
THE DRESS: A pattern mandated by jailed FLDS leader Warren Jeffs, who outlawed skirts, ruffles and even plaid from women's ward- robes. Nothing that shows shape is allowed.
PASTELS ONLY: The color also is dictated by Jeffs, who maintains that lighter hues are more conducive to the spirit of God. Red is reserved for the robes of Jesus Christ, and dark colors evoke a dark spirit.
BENEATH THE DRESS: The women wear long underwear, which stretches from wrist to ankle, a slip and leggings to cover the underwear.
LONG UNDERWEAR: Hand-sewn from a pattern passed from woman to woman, long underwear must be worn by adults and children, summer and winter, to prepare church members for garments they believe will be worn in heaven.
