President Palin

John McCain made an interesting pick for VP in Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin. The 44-year old mother of 5 is a heartbeat (or heart attack) from being the President if McCain is elected. John McCain's grandfather died of a heart attack at the age of 61 and his father died at the age of 70 of a heart attack. McCain is currently 71 years old so this isn't me being cynical but rather taking account of his family history.

Anyway, on to Sarah Palin. Here's the only two things you need to know about her. She opposes all forms of abortion (fair enough) and severely wants to limit women's reproductive rights. And in possibly the stupidest comment said in the last year here is her response to Newsmax regarding global warming.

What is your take on global warming and how is it affecting our country?
Palin: "A changing environment will affect Alaska more than any other state, because of our location. I'm not one though who would attribute it to being man-made."

Its called judgment and obviously this beauty pageant winner of 44 years old has more of it than the overwhelming majority of scientists (and even recently the Bush administration) on whether global warming is a man-made phenomenon.  I hate to do it to such a pretty lady but you're getting the first of our new weekly award for "Fucking Moron of the Week".  Let's not even consider McCain's judgment in putting this woman one accident/heart attack/dementia induced resignation away from being the most powerful person in the world.

Tonight Barack Obama becomes the first African American to be nominated by a major political party for the office of President of the Untied States of America.

But it is about so much more. The movement embodied by this man has the potential to heal the great wounds of the past eight years and fundamentally change the political system and landscape for the better.

Yes We Can.

Edit: The Gettysburg Address, I Have A Dream, and Obama's Acceptance Speech. Its History. I'm calling it.

Video to come.

Still no video on youtube, but I did find this ringing endorsement of the Speech.

You can actually see Bloody Bill wince in pain at those admissions.

Another "Victory" for Bush's Foreign Policy

Last October, it seemed as if The Bush Gang had proved the "stopped clock" theory and had "gotten one right" on the foreign policy test. A major development in the nuclear situation in North Korea involved six-party talks and an agreement stipulating that N. Korea would end their nuclear programs in return for removal from the "State Sponsors of Terror" list. They did. We didn't. Surprise!

Now, as the US and other nations bicker about the method of verification of the disarming, N. Korea has stated that as of Aug. 14th, they have halted the dismantling of their enrichment program.

Way to go George. The immaturity of this guy is astounding. He got what he wanted, the feather in his cap for disarming N. Korea, but when it came time for him to keep his end of the bargain, guess what he did? Yup, changed the rules and yelled "Psych!" And now the world once again must face the consequences of the Bush Cabal's ignorance/incompetence; a potentially re-armed North Korea.

I've Moved To Chicago!!!

Sorry that it has been so long since I've updated but things have been rather hectic lately as I moved to Chicago on one week's notice.  Hopefully things will get settled down pretty fast and I can start posting again.  Dean will still be in Texas and if he ever gets time will be posting from there still.
