    A few weeks ago, Ann Coulter announced that she was bored of American politics and was spending her days watching Turner Classic Movies. I confess that, when it comes to Beltway melodrama, I too am fighting vainly the old ennui, and minded to plump up the pillows and settle back with a bucket of bonbons and a beribboned Shih-tzu for an all-night Norma Shearer marathon. At least, unlike Washington, there’s a chance you may catch something you haven’t already seen a hundred times before. For example, I’ve a yen to see Roberta (RKO, 1935), in which Irene Dunne sings: Yesterdays...

    Beam me up, Yoda: Obama flubs 'Star Trek' term By DARLENE SUPERVILLE WASHINGTON (AP) — He's not a dictator and won't entertain the idea of a "Jedi mind-meld" with opponents. There's no "secret formula or special sauce" he can slip foes to make them see things his way. And not to worry, he says, the situation may look dire but won't be an "apocalypse." So who was the guy in a suit and tie who showed up Friday in the White House briefing room, mixing metaphors and references to "Star Wars" and "Star Trek"? "I am not a dictator. I'm...

    President Barack Obama, seeking to illustrate Friday that he has done all he can to avert sequester cuts, invoked a few memorable analogies. First there was one from the movie "Star Wars" -- although he mixed up his space dramas a bit. ~~SNIP~~ the fact that they don't take it, means that I should somehow do a Jedi mindmeld with these folks and convince them to do what's right,

    Obama: Republicans 'Paint Horns on My Head' Daniel Halper March 1, 2013 12:37 PM President Barack Obama suggested today he'd be able to negotiation with the opposition better if they didn't "paint horns on [his] head": "I recognize that Speaker Boehner has got challenges in his caucus," said Obama. "I recognize that it's very hard for Republican leaders to be perceived as making concessions to me. You know, sometimes I reflect, is there something else I can do to make these guys -- I am not talking about the leaders now, but maybe some of the House Republican caucus members...

    At midnight tonight, a bevy of steep spending cuts will hit the federal government unless Congress and the White House agree to an alternative deficit-cutting proposal. Although the national media has been relentlessly focused on this deadline, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said it will only affect New York City if the so-called “sequestration” continues for a significant length of time.

    And with that, he's done. 3m ago The president is hereby using the power of his office to advance his legislative agenda. He's spoken for 40 minutes to the press, an unusually long time in an administration when the president taking any questions at all has come to seem unusual. Obama's statement this morning is, let's talk about it. I've got nothing to hide. The more we talk about it the more my advantage grows.
