http://voices.washingtonpost.com/44/2009/07/03/palins_remarks_in_stepping_dow.html?wprss=44 Sarah Palin’s remarks from today’s announcements, as taken from her website. I’m surprised someone had the forethought to remove the 😉 and LOLs, though the remaining text does give the impression it was written by one of her pre-teen daughters. In the words of General MacArthur said, “We are not retreating. We are advancing […]

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090703/ap_on_re_us/us_palin_resigning_25 Sarah Palin “resigns” (like she won’t come back in an even more annoying venue – talk show, anyone?), citing one of the least coherent political arguments ever: She said she had decided against running for re-election as Alaska’s governor, and believed it was best to leave office even though she had two years left […]

http://www.cbc.ca/canada/bcvotes2009/story/2009/05/12/bc-election-results-main-story.html I know very little about Gordon Campbell outside of his DUI from a few years ago (and, really, that’s about all I needed to know), but it seems I was also ignorant of the total collapse of BC’s political right wing. It makes sense, in such a socially progressive province, but I’m surprised – […]
http://www.contracostatimes.com/ci_11548403?source=rss Sarah Palin’s apparently itching to pen a memoir, for the right price. Reports said last week the Alaska governor and GOP vice presidential candidate wants an $11 million book deal, and she’s hired Washington, D.C., power attorney Robert Barnett to look for one. So far, reports say, no publishing house has expressed interest. Perhaps […]
http://www.alanataylor.com/2008/11/designersforobamaorg-fantastic.html A timely Stumble; I was just the other day thinking about what a fabulous logo Obama had for his campaign. You get so used to seeing these things sometimes it’s hard to evaluate them from a graphical point of view. One more month until the new dawn. My fingers are crossed.

http://www.rollingstone.com/politics/story/23318320/mad_dog_palin/print Forgive me one last, late election-era article. I like to remember Sarah Palin’s candidacy in the same way that I remember the Hypercolor tshirts, sideways ponytails and multiple-Swatches of an earlier posting: As a bullet-dodged, “what were they thinking?” kind of nostalgia. The great insight of the Palin VP choice is that huge chunks […]
