From a CNN pool report, Friday

David Axelrod described the message coming from President Barack Obama days before Election Day as "coming from his loins."
"I've never seen him more exhilarated than he is right now. He believes in what he's doing. He believes in what he's fighting for," Axelrod told reporters Friday after the president's event in Lima, Ohio. "You can see in the speech that he's delivering that this is coming from his loins."
"I just wanted to say loins," the president's senior adviser added with a smirk. "I wanted to see if I can get loins in the story."
Axelrod forever.

Is "Back to Blood" on the White House reading list? I bet it is....

On a related note, does anyone out there like I Am Charlotte Simmons? I thought it was pretty fantastic, and I feel like I'm on an island of one on that one.

I sadly will not be joining you on that island. I thought that parts of it were very perceptive, but there was a lot of "Can you BELIEVE the kids are drinking and hooking up?!" to it too. Then again, I read it when I was in college - maybe I'd find it more relatable now, with some distance.
