John Hodgeman's PC is Wile E Coyote.

He's too inept to win, but we're sympathetic to him.

It runs a little tight

I read the general tone of the reaction to this ad as "bemused."

 

As the opener for a sustained campaign to reintroduce the Windows brand to, I actually think this ad is pretty good. Not informative. Not substantial. Just kind of charming.

And who thought you'd ever think of something from Microsoft as "charming"?

Disclaimer: I work for the company that paid for the ad and Jerry Seinfeld's services. I may be biased. I may not. Hard to tell.

Amazing what people will say when they think the mic's off. Old GOP hands Peggy Noonan and Mike Murphy unwittingly shared some unguarded conversation with viewers on MSNBC:

Their verdict? Palin isn't the most qualified Republican woman to anchor the ticket, but a bit player cynically chosen to feature in a "bullshit" McCain political narrative.

Oh, and they think the GOP will lose.

Weird. Noonan's most recent Journal column didn't mention any of these observations until after she was caught out.
