The Editorial Staff could have gone a very long time without contemplating The Firmness of the Presidential Tuckus:
... Lena Dunham didn’t last long as the voice of a newly self-aware generation of young women who openly acknowledged the awkwardness — and, perhaps, the undesirability — of sex sans commitment. First, it was the ad that managed to combine my 6th-grade sex-ed class with my 6th-grade government class; it told us to vote for the president because he cares a lot about birth control and abortion, and we should love men who never want us to have their children, and care that we can always abort them, or something like that.
Today, she was sounding more like my friends circa 8th grade, when she gushed on Twitter that “you could bounce a quarter off [Obama's] butt”...
This is no partisan slight, mind you. Somehow we have managed to get through the entire election season without once pondering the thankfully unrevealed magnificence of Mitt Romney's glutes.
Must be a generational thing. Then again, perhaps not.
What is wrong with these people?

That's a great line, and a rather important one.

She has a quarter?
I am off to finish watching Rob Roy. Never got around to watching it after 'Braveheart.'

Rob Roy is the better movie in certain respects. They took the physics seriously in Rob Roy: in Braveheart you see a man drawing a blade over his shoulder in impossible ways, and you see 'the battle of Stirling bridge' fought without a bridge, and without a river.
All the same, Gibson was on to something that Liam was not.

I liked 'Braveheart' but detested the license taken with certain aspects of the story. Rob Roy was a better movie because of editing, a good script, and an interesting take on the money he borrows. It just appeals to my dark side.
'Braveheart' is in my political canon because of the main character. William Wallace is, was and will always be a man for all seasons. Even now, I can hear him spinning in his grave.
Rob Roy struck too close to home; MacGregor borrows the money to improve the lot of his people. He didn't intend for them to become enslaved. We did that on a national scale.
