It Was So Thrilling, Some of Us Even Showed Up


Been awhile since you enjoyed the laffs at The Huffington Post? Here's a collection of opening lines from recent blog items:

  • Erica Jong: "As usual, Bill Maher is right."
  • Jerry and Joe Long: "A few random thoughts while trying to figure out how it is that Al Qaeda can even have websites?"
  • Arianna Huffington: "Here I am at the 2005 Take Back America conference in Washington. I haven't seen this many committed progressives in one place since Pete Seeger and the Weavers disbanded."
  • Randall Robinson: "I can no longer bear it. Even at the risk of being misunderstood. Of committing a gaffe of some magnitude or other—– a breach of some protocol, for instance, that I may not have heard of. Or, of some unwritten rule whose provenance no-one remembers anymore."
  • Torie Osborn: "The excitement was contagious at the first (only) meeting of Mayor-Elect Antonio Villaraigosa's Transition Team at the Science Center in south LA on Monday. Many of the 82 of us were there."
