Week In Review - March 10, 2012

The GOP primary doldrums rolled on this week, and the Republican base is still unmotivated by their two main choices - Mitt Romney and anyone other than Mitt Romney. Mitt apparently managed to swallow some good ol' Southern grits (and his pride) on the campaign trail, but he is still choking on the continuing positive employment numbers President Obama is racking up month after month. In the politics makes strange bedfellows category, I attacked Bill Maher's misleading defense of Rush Limbaugh.

Sports superstars were big news this week. We wept at Peyton Manning's classy farewell to Indy, and we celebrated the return of Roger Federer to top form and hopefully to the top of the tennis rankings. Golf's #1 player Rory McIlroy is apparently unsatisfied with dominating only one sport, as he was filmed this week playing a tennis point against top women's pro Maria Sharapova at a Madison Square Garden exhibition event.

Lastly, we got a brief glance at a great new book of horrible but hilarious personal advice from the likes of Louis C.K. and other comedians, and we enjoyed a musical tribute from Peter Gabriel to the power of women in honor of International Women's Day.

As always, thanks for reading!
