About me

I'm Brendan Loy, a 26-year-old graduate of USC and Notre Dame now living and working in Knoxville, Tennessee. My wife Becky and I are brand-new parents of a beautiful baby girl, born on New Year's Eve.

I'm a big-time sports fan, a politics, media & law junkie, an astronomy buff, a weather nerd, an Apple aficionado, a Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter fanatic, and an all-around dork. My blog is best-known for its coverage of Hurricane Katrina, but I blog about anything and everything that interests me.

Too good to be true

Is it really possible that Bill Clinton actually said to Bill Richardson -- in reference to Richardson's refusal to endorse Hillary -- “Isn’t two Cabinet posts enough?”

Color me skeptical. I'd love to know what the sourcing is on the report where the quote first appeared. Like the allegation that Paul Wolfowitz said the Iraq War was "all about oil" (subsequently corrected and deleted), this is one of those quotes that's so deliciously wonderful, so perfect, so neatly encapsulating what everybody in the Beltway secretly (or not-so-secretly) thinks about Bill Clinton -- that he's a presumptuous, insufferable egomaniac who considers himself God's gift to the Democratic Party and believes that everybody in the known universe "owes" him -- I just can't believe it's actually true.

Having worked around white male CEOs for a number of years, this is exactly how I would expect a call like this to play out. And I really see nothing wrong with it.

If someone appoints you as the U.S. Ambassador the the UN and as the Secretary of Energy, you would think you should be able to call in a chit. It's called loyalty and it happens everyday in business.

Cutting CEOs' grass does not count.

We need 50 more years of pure republican
sweat talk to guide on out of this mess

"sweat talk"?

What is that? Wait, I don't think I want to know.

I'm with Mad Max on this one. If I was Billary, I'd be fuming with Richardson on this one.
