The name I've chosen comes from "Lord of the Rings," when Gandalf faces down the Balrog in the Mines of Moria. My Hebrew name is Esther (which is related to the word for "hidden" or "secret") Serafina (which means "burning"). This seems appropriate because although I don't usually put myself forward, I do care very passionately about a lot of things. Maybe through these blogs I can share some of these passions, as well as less weighty ideas and opinions, with others.

Chris Matthews, Joe Biden and Bin Laden

I heard a lot about Sen. Biden's big mouth and pontificating during the Alito hearings, but the one time he should have opened his mouth was the one time he didn't.

Although I haven't read all the blog coverage, etc. on Matthews' comment likening Bin Laden to Michael Moore, in what I have read I haven't seen one mention of the most disgraceful thing about it. Matthews was talking to Biden when he made that comment, and what was Biden's reaction? Did he protest at the outrageousness of the comparison? Did he sit, utterly speechless at it? No, he LAUGHED, and then went on to say that he thought the tape was directed more at the Muslim world. He evidently doesn't mind a patriotic American citizen being compared to a man with thousands of American deaths on his head. He thought it was FUNNY.

Michael Moore's revenge Go for it, Mike!
