ON BOOBAGE. You can now tell your grandchildren that you learned that word here. It is a good term for what is happening at MSNBC. On July 30, nearly half an hour of the MSNBC news day was devoted to the discussion of Hillary Clinton's cleavage. If you happened to see the picture starting all this fuss you might scratch your head. To paraphrase, I've seen exposed cleavage, and that picture is not it.

So what is all the publicity really about? Could it be a way of addressing the gender of Hillary Clinton, without seeming to do so? "Can cleavage be the commander-in-chief?" That sort of thing.

I'm not sure. My take on the whole non-issue is available at my other place.
