Why We Love Us Some Terry Gross

This morning on NPR interviewing Joshua Green of The Atlantic about the performance of the Clintons in Denver, she considered the quality of their remarks and the response of the Obama supporters to those remarks as and compared that interaction to:

make-up sex.

Which was brilliant and left Mr. Green nonplussed, probably recalling from personal experience (one hopes) of how the zest and sparkle of make-up sex sometimes, even a considerable fraction of the time -- help me out here, gentle reader -- justifies and perhaps even encourages the fight.

Or as that venerable political pundit and marriage counselor Ralph Kramden put it: "To the moon, Alice, straight to the moon."
