Little Known Fact: Sarah Palin
I Ain't Nothing But Tired - Spencer Ackerman

Oh, I think we finally have achieve critical mass on hilarity in this campaign cycle. Any more and the McCain campaign will explode into a comedy worthy of Kafka. Now is the time when things go from mildly amusing to outright joke.

Women Should Be Seen And Not Heard

Jason Zengerle: a small man with a small sense of rhetoric. The speech was great and went a long way to blunting both the PUMAs and the Republicans. So grow up Zengerle and get over your mommy issues.

Don't Trust Anyone Over Thirty

The Great White Debate has begun anew with the start of the Democratic convention. As a reader from Andrew Sullivan's site has noted, Sen. Obama doesn't fit into any of the preconceived categories white people have created for blacks. Moreover, the PUMAs (Party Unity My Ass) folk represent that side of the party that cares nothing for advancing the Democratic agenda. It's one thing when a member of the Republican party expresses fear of a black president, it's quite another when members of the party that's supposed to support Sen. Obama won't because he beat their favored candidate in the primaries. It's really stunning to see so much hatred thrown at a man who has done everything he can to unite people. But of course, he's black so we can't trust him.

Gun, Meet Foot

McCain Would Consider Reinstating The Draft - Colby @ Truemors

Now considering Sen. McCain's past of saying one thing in public only to have his handlers tell the press something completely different, I'm not going to lose any sleep over these statements. Until reinstating the draft becomes written policy for McCain's campaign then it's just words. However, if Sen. McCain were to make the draft part of his platform then he better make sure his GOTV efforts for the elderly are running superbly. That's because nearly ever person under thirty is going to vote for Sen. Obama. Even making passing comments about reinstating the draft for a war that the public has seriously soured on is like taking close aim at your foot with a very large gun. Moreover, during the week of the Democratic convention, you don't make stupid statements like this. Sen. McCain should know better that the Democrats will easily make his comments part of their campaigns and speeches this week.
