The moderator of tomorrow nights VP debate, Gwen Ifill, stands to make money off of the election, should Obama win, with her new book.
But I’m sure she will still run a fair and balanced program.
So this is scandal number, what? 27? 48? Read about it here. Just keep piling it on. I’m really enjoying watching her approval ratings sink.
An Aside: Tonight’s Debates
Who’s watching them?
“You better watch out congress because she’s out to shake up Washington She’s our number one woman, We all love that Hockey Mom”

I love, love, LOVE the TED talks. I’ve yet to watch one that wasn’t absolutely fascinating and mind-opening in some way or form. Jonathan Haidt’s The Read Difference Between Liberals and Conservatives is no different. It’s the sort of open and honest talk on a subject that effects all of us almost every day that both sides of the equation could watch and nod their heads to. Definitely worth freeing up twenty minutes (and your undivided attention) to check out.
Should we concerned about this? Is this the sort of thing that happens every election and we’re only now making a big deal of it? Or is the election being stolen right out from under our noses?
Political magic cards. That’s Magic: The Gathering, mind you, a nerdy card game a number of us played when we were 14 (or 27). Funny regardless of experience in nerdy card games.
McCain selects Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate.
Will the Hillary democrats now vote for a republican just because his running mate is a woman?
Barack Obama will accept the Democratic nomination for President on the 45th anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech.
i don’t care what your opinion on either man is, you have to admit that it’s a pretty amazing and fantastic milestone.
This all started when the president of Georgia, Mikheil Saakashvili, ordered an attack on the Russian territory of South Ossetia. South Ossetia was once part of Georgia but declared independence in the early 90’s. When Georgia first moved into South Ossetia, the Russian diplomat warned Georgia that they will defend the new country if a conflict breaks out. Saakashvili offered a ceasefire but then let conflict break out anyhow. So that’s the background.
Now the Russians are pummeling the Georgians, our military is flying the Georgians back home to defend their country, and all the world seems to be crying foul on the Russians for attacking this “beacon of democracy” in middle east.
Did I miss something? What the fuck is going on here? Georgia unilaterally attacked another country and Russia defended it. Granted, South Ossetia is acting as a de facto country and is not internationally recognized, but still. Georgia attacked! Even NPR’s Daniel Shore seemed to sympathize with Georgia, and that dude’s always spot-on. So what am I missing?
