By popular demand, I've finally put together some new Snob gear meant to appeal to those who prefer a more streamline look. Featuring the current snob girl logo or just the simple word "SNOB," these new bits of swag come a variety of colors and styles. Meaning ... yo, Greeks. You can totally color coordinate your Snob gear. (Psst! Alpha Kappa Alphas. I made a "Snob" girl with a green "O" in SNOB and pink lipstick. And I put it on not one but two pink shirts. Don't say I never gave ya' nuttin'!) I also have stuff for the menfolks. I also have gifts, tote bags and all kinds of mugs. Represent in style! All proceeds towards Snob gear go to The Snob's "Keep this Blog Alive" fund! The less stress I have over those bills in such the more I post! (Psst. I also take donations.) Check out the new Limited Edition shop here.

According to Wikipedia: "A reform school in the United States was a term used to define, often somewhat euphemistically, what was often essentially a penal institution for boys, generally teenagers."
So what is the inverse of this term, aka "school reform?" A penal institution for teachers who work at schools? Or a penal institution for children who don't have the money to afford private school?
Last week, I was chatting with an ex-White House staffer at lunch in Georgetown about President Obama and the midterm elections. I was talking, with horror, about how if/when the Republicans take back Congress, America can look forward to at least two years of gridlock, of nothing getting done, of government shutdowns, of political show offs and potential pointless investigations against the President in order to roust him from office.
Meaning -- 1994 all over again.
Which made me think of former President Bill Clinton and how Barack Obama can't use the last Democratic President's patented coping technique -- hugging it out with Negroes.
