http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20090624/ap_on_re_us/us_sc_governor_where_60 Much as I love news reports exposing Republican hypocrisy and “immoral” (their words… prior to getting caught, anyway) behaviour, they’re coming at rather a quick pace.

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 […]

http://www.iht.com/articles/ap/2008/11/05/america/NA-US-Elections-Rice.php I’m late in commenting on this story, but I hope it’ll be the last nail in the coffin of my electoral commentary – I want to look forward to the Obama administration, and put McCain/Palin behind me. A final word, then, on the stupidity of “Maverick” McCain, whose choice of an unaccomplished, inexperienced redneck […]

Larry Craig – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Larry_Craig Speaking of the shamed Senator, earlier evidence that his glass house was shattered by much stone throwing: In 1999 Craig became sharply critical of U.S. President Bill Clinton for the Monica Lewinsky scandal. Speaking on NBC’s Meet The Press, Craig told Tim Russert: “The American people already know that Bill Clinton is a bad […]

http://www.nytimes.com/2008/10/23/us/politics/23palin.html?em Sarah Palin’s wardrobe cost more than my condo, and could probably buy a whole city’s worth of foreclosed houses. Rodney, have the well-dressed candidates hit Warren, yet?

http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20080709/ap_on_re_ca/g8_climate_change_24;_ylt=Aly.sKQgzIEO1CmS18qnIyEE1vAI The G8 miraculously come to a consensus on climate change, and promise swift action to meet greenhouse gas reduction targets. Ha ha, just kidding. As usual, the self-congratulatory group present a plan that calls for halving today’s levels over the next 42 years. Dream big, guys, dream big. The one bright spot in the […]
