GOP guy on 2012: Freedomworks 'impotent' to stop Romney, Palin 'third-tier'

10/05/11 09:23AM

The last time Republicans tried to win the White House, Steve Schmidt served as senior campaign strategist for the McCain/Palin ticket. Last night, he surveyed the field -- starting with Mitt Romney and Dick Armey's FreedomWorks, which would like to end the Romney bid. Schmidt had this to say about whether FreedomWorks could derail Mr. Romney:No. Look, I think at the end of the day, it's a pay-for-play organization that is good about sending out press releases about itself. read more

You should meet Maurice Sendak-- author, illustrator, freaker-out-of-children.  And you can do it here.  Sendak has given a moving and memorable interview to the Guardian in which he explains how the grotesqueness of his characters came from his childhood.Sendak shakes his head beneath the low-beamed ceiling, in this room full of art and old rugs. "I can't believe I've turned into a typical old man. I can't believe it." He smiles and his face transforms. read more
