She addressed the nonsense of fondling Bambi instead of holidng accountable and also why she's blogging now.

"Frauds passing themselves off as 'helpful'" -- Elaine's piece was the second most requested here during last week. We're glad Ty told us that because Elaine was saying, "I didn't do anything worthy of a highlight. Just link to other people's stuff." This is a pretty amazing post.

"Caroline" -- Elaine's other popular post from last week. Addressing how the Caroline-standard is uneven and broken.

Isaiah's The World Today Just Nuts "Caroline Speaks" -- Also addressing Caroline -- who's the Greta Garbo of the political world when it comes to reclusion -- was Isaiah in this hilarious comic.
