Sunday Roundup

Posted: 02/12/2012 12:00 am

This week, I used my vast storehouse of football knowledge (i.e., almost none) to correctly predict that the Giants would beat the Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI. I did not, however, predict that supermodel Gisele Bundchen would make headlines with her expletive-laden tirade blaming hubby Tom Brady's teammates for the loss. I also failed to predict the Catholic Bishops' forcing the president into overtime in Birth Control Bowl MMXII, or Rick Santorum's trifecta on Tuesday night (is it time to officially downgrade Romney from inevitable GOP nominee to evitable GOP nominee?). Elsewhere, President Obama abandoned his previous denunciation of outside money (in the wake of the Citizens United ruling he had called super PACs a "threat to our democracy") and joined the super PAC parade -- a decision his campaign defended as a necessary evil, but which many viewed as just another example of this White House's willingness to waver. Even on "threats to our democracy."
