A few morning videos

The drain bamaged person who posted this video asked that it be shared and since it made me laugh I figured I'd oblige. I just hope no one thinks *I* took this seriously.

Before you go off and worry about the alleged Obama/Khalidi buddyship...

You don't have to watch all of this. (My limit on Gov. Palin's voice is about 80 seconds before I need something to throw.) The phrase I'm looking for you to hear is from the very end of the first minute and the first few seconds of the second minute. There's one phrase alone I want you to think about, because I am unsure if Palin meant it the way it sounds or if she's just that stupid. Listen to it and then tell me, do you think someone wanted her to say "'hood" instead of "neighborhood?" I realize it is a perfectly appropriate word in this context, except that if "lipstick on a pig" means Obama was dissing Palin, don't you think "in the neighborhood" could be Palin being racist?

Just asking.....

Now I'm not really sure that Palin deserved the worst of the worst in last night's "Worst Persons in the World" from Keith Olbermann, but I'm not a baseball fan (except insofar as it works for me better than Ambien) so I can't imagine what Pennsylvania baseball fans think. But his second place "winner" seems to me to be the perfect gold medal winner in this not-really-a-competition. And if you want to read the whole article he's talking about, it's here. Just remember, Pamela Geller (no relation to Sarah Michelle, I pray!) makes Matt Drudge look both respectable and honest. And next to her he writes well. (BTW, she complains that Wikipedia, keeps taking down the information she's quoting from there. She sees conspiracy. I see correcting false, inflammatory information. But that's just me...)

If anyone can get me an icon based on the "bridge" picture in the following segment of The Daily Show, I will love you forever and ever. If the embedded video doesn't work you can find the video here. I did manage to print it from the flash player menu and will try scanning it but it's already getting blurry in just the initial direct print. Grrrr.....

And now I think it's time for coffee.

In 2007 Sarah Palin offered $150 to every hunter who hacked off the left foreleg of a wolf shot from a plane

I should think that a $400,000 budget item geared towards bypassing a federal law constitutes something akin to, if not worse than, a porkbarrel earmark. But that's just me, yanno?

Best Palin-snark of the week

We were in the car discussing politics and the issue of Sarah Palin's alleged foreign policy experience came up. And I explained that she claims that Alaska under her governess-ship sent trade delegations to Russia, while various pundits have checked and discovered that there have been no such trade delegations.

And Matthew, Kim's beloved, said, "Amway doesn't count."

I'm still giggling.

It's getting close to Election Day? Do you know where your registration is?

If you need to check the status of your voter registration, do so NOW. Go HERE. It doesn't do anything weird with your information, just directs you to your state voter registration site.

Dear John McCain:

I am NOT your fucking friend! I am your fellow American, one of the "folks" and lots of other things but I. Am. Not. Your. Friend.

Stop calling me that.

I noticed it, too.

What I wish I could find was the point where she almost said it right. Because she did. And then she corrected herself. Or, rather, Uncorrected herself. Or something.

I have a cold. And the last thing I want to do is make myself feel worse. And "Primeval" isn't on for a few hours yet. So I think I'm going back to bed.

The true cost of the war

Thanks to my bud Arkham4269 for finding this. I can't say I understand the math (I'm an accountant but the real life kind, not the theoretical kind) but I follow the logic used to set up the math.

This is from a book that I would dearly love to get but I suspect by the time it's published and shipped, it won't be relevant anymore. At least I hope it won't.
