Can we slow them down so I can savour them each a bit more? *sly grin* After going AWOL for seven days, Gov. Mark Sanford admitted Wednesday that […]

http://seattletimes.nwsource.com/html/politics/2009021903_bushlife11.html The forgettable yet unforgotten President Bush (remember him?) has resurfaced to announce his memoir plans. At the library, instead of a traditional chronological format, he plans to present his presidency through 20 consequential decisions he made… And instead of a full biography, his book will focus on a dozen key moments in his life, […]
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 […]
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://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 […]
http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20080613/wl_nm/zimbabwe_election_dc_43;_ylt=Apwfk.Uhxas5DbDTemQhpSgE1vAI Zimbabwe’s President Robert Mugabe said on Friday liberation war veterans would take up arms if he loses a June 27 presidential run-off vote.
