A while ago, Eric Ripert, the culinary world’s most famous Buddhist, took a trip to Bhutan to tour the Aman Resorts. While he was there, however, he took some time to perform karmic actions by volunteering to make dinner at a nearby monastery. Lately he’s been reminiscing about his better, non-self-absorbed version of Eat, Pray, Love via Twitter, and as a result, the world has some gorgeous photos of his travels through Bhutan. (Also: this video of a procession at a temple.) Enjoy!
There's no cross domain hackery or tracking voodoo, it's just some sweet jQuery animations.
Please, think of the animations.
In the meantime, enjoy the html version below. I guess. If that's your thing.
Joe Scarborough Got it Wrong!
Scarborough's role in L'affaire du Trump has been overlooked by many, but he was among the very first to claim that The Donald was "very seriously" considering a run for President back on October 10th. But he outdid himself in a column he wrote for Politico in which he compared Trump's rhetoric with Ronald Reagan. Yes, that really happened.
Lawrence O'Donnell Got it Right!
Credit where it is due: nobody was more skeptical of Trump's charade than Lawrence O'Donnnell (and no one tooted his or horn as much either.) But in this case, the horn tooting is well deserved, so toot away Mr. O'Donnell, toot away.
Bill O'Reilly Got it Wrong!
The Fox News elder statesman entertained Trump on his show a number times, lending the platform of his highly rated show for Trump to spew his "rhetoric" and promote his show. While O'Reilly deserves credit for treating Trump somewhat skeptically, he did reveal during a call in to Don Imus' show that he'd heard from a close friend that Trump would be running. So there is that.
Glenn Beck Got it Right!
During his regular Friday appearance with Bill O'Reilly, Glenn Beck put it quite simply: America doesn't need a showboat highjacking the 2012 elections, or in his very specific words: "the last thing the country needs is a showboat’
Charles Krauthammer Got it Wrong!
Mr. Krathammer is among the most respected political commentators from the right, and when it came to Trump, he got it right before getting it wrong. Shortly after calling the candidacy "vulgar" Krauthammer revealed that after speaking to Trump, he believed that "absolutely” he was running for President. (Sad trombone sound.)
Greg Gutfeld Got it Right!
Greg Gutfeld and his Red Eye crew never took him seriously and often correctly likened Donald Trump to other media sideshows like Westboro Baptist church and the Koran burning pastor.
David Brooks Got it Wrong!
Mr. Brooks holds a special place in the field of political pundits: a right-of-center columnist in a sea of lefties at the NY Times. During an appearance on Meet the Press, Brooks lent the NY Times credibility when he exclaimed that he believed that Trump really was running for president. Oops.
Stephen Colbert Got it Right!
Technically Colbert was "behind" Trump's campaign, though anyone familiar with his unique and ironically detached brand of commentary would see through his support. But he's mostly included on this list for revealing Donald Trump's stunning admission that he didn't know what the 13 stripes on the American flag represented.
Dick Morris Got it Wrong!
Simply put, when was the last time that Dick Morris predicted anything correctly? Nothing of late comes to mind, and his confident statement getting behind Trump's campaign only reaffirms his status as a former political expert. Or as Jon Stewart once lamented, "Oh Dick Morris, will you ever be right?"
Rachel Maddow Got it Right!
Rachel Maddow barely even mentioned Donald Trump's name on her show, and when she did, it was to expose the lunacy of "birther controversy." Kudos to Ms. Maddow.
Mark Halperin Got it Wrong!
MSNBC and Time magazine contributor seems to like to play it down the middle, neither presenting a clear left nor right point of view, which is why he has earned much respect from both sides. But he most likely would not like to be judged solely by comments he made about Trump, in which he alleged that he is seriously considering a run. (Bonus points to Halperin for wisely putting Trump's decision in the context of the weak GOP field.)
