Palin's Email

Hacking Sarah Palin's email is highly illegal. Jail time illegal. But how lame must her password have been? Bet it was Todd.

Hey Hey!!!

Maybe 100 years are enough.

Congratulations Zambrano! You made my year - I was in high school the last time there was a Cubs no hitter.

Interesting Article

Have you been wondering what Obama and McCain have been up to in the Senate the last couple of years? The Washington Monthly tallies it up for you.

There's one very surprising one for McCain. Cesar Chavez? Who'd a thunk it?

John Aravosis says it

Much better then I can.

Listening to the conventions, I was struck by how similar Obama's family values were to my family's values. Working hard and getting a good education and becoming a good citizen were everything. It's not easy - I work a lot of hours and then come home to minor home repair and parenting, but it's the most emotionally rewarding way to live that I can imagine. The Obamas are like my parents - my parents worked together to get my father through a doctorate at the University of Chicago. Not going to college was just not an option when I was growing up.

John McCain is not like anyone I've ever met in my life. The way he treated his first family is incredibly disgusting. He made a profession of being a Navy screwup until he was captured in Vietnam. After he was released he decided to be a playboy until he found a rich heiress to marry. Why Cindy married him I'll never know. Whenever I hear about her drug problems I just think that I'd take drugs if I was married to John McCain too.

Wouldn't it be nice

To see articles starting "Wasilla Welfare Queen, Sarah Palin"

The most disgusting thing I've ever heard

Sarah Palin presided over the most cynical practice I've ever heard of. Rape victims in Wasilla AK had to pay for their own forensic exams. I just can't believe how deranged that practice is. Apparently the government welfare queen who brought 20 million dollars in earmarks to a town of 5000 didn't want to spend $14,000 a year to put rapists behind bars.

If she ever gets in national office the crime rate is going to be even worse. I remember the way crime had gone down after Clinton got funding for 100,000 extra police officers and funded community policing efforts. Bush cut these programs and now we have 10 year olds gunned down in the street.

When I say

Stupid cracker I mean a bread product that's not smart.

Oh, that's where it is

I've heard about the welfare state all my life. Now I know where it is.

Doug Rushkoff says it better than anyone

I've been watching the RNC, I can only take it a little bit at at time because of the negative tone. Douglas Rushkoff wrote a piece on the convention that expresses very well what is bothering me.

Normally negativity doesn't bother me much - I met Buddy Rich once and I thought he was pleasant. The unholy combination of Giuliani and Palin is just too much. I have never heard two more vicious people. Sarah Palin is just Bush in a skirt.

Sarah Palin

What on earth was she thinking? As a mother, if I had a choice to keep my family issues private or broadcast them to the whole world, I would opt for quiet.

It is nice that her daughter was given a choice that she'd deny to my daughter. Yeah, that'll make me vote Republican. I have never seen a more stupid, greedy bunch of hypocrites in my life.
