A new era is dawning. Obama-Biden are giving us information about what they are doing. Imagine, a government that is working to inform its citizens. :wow: edited to add direct links: (Link)/ and (Link) NOTE the .gov addresses. :woohoo: "Today we begin in earnest the work of making sure that the world we leave our children is just a little bit better than the one we inhabit today." - President-Elect Barack Obama edited to add this hasty screen grab: (Image) and edited again to add the Pres...

Did you know that McCain's sister married into the JP Morgan family? I didn't either until a little while ago. See, since McCain wants to play the "who is associated with whom" game, I decided to play along and see what I could dig up. Here's what I found. John has an older sister whose married name is Sandy McCain Morgan. Sandy is married to retired Rear Admiral Henry S. Morgan, a great-grandson of JP Morgan. Here is how I pieced it together. First I had to find out who Sandy McCain was. ...

I saw this banner at the corner of 18th and K Street. I wish more businesses in DC would put similar displays to remind those who walk along the streets of downtown DC of the terrible toll this war is taking. (Image) (Image) (Image)

Have you ever had an idea for a video that mixed historic speeches with modern music? Have you ever wanted to make your own political or issue oriented video but felt stymied because you didn't know how to do it? Have you ever wanted to make a video contrasting what various politicians have said over the years but couldn't find the right video clips? Well, now you do. Naturally, a lot of the older materials are read by actors, but there are also actual recordings from people like Walt Whit...

Remember, remember the Seventh of November, The GOP Treason and Plot, I know of no reason Why GOP Treason Should ever be forgot. Al Gore, Al Gore, t'was his intent To low old coal and save Enviro'ment Three-score pages of Opinion blow To approve America's overthrow; By Court's providence he was catch'd With jury stacked and votes to match. Holloa boys, holloa Sandy, bet that hell did ring. Holloa boys, holloa Sandy, you gave us this Reigme. The original: Remember, remember the ...

I thought it was pretty funny. Hope you enjoy it too. John Kerry, on Nantucket at the DSCC fundraiser last weekend, recited this limerick: There once was a man named Vitter Who vowed that he wasn't a quitter But with stories of women And all of his sinnin' He knows his career's in the -- oh, nevermind.

The actual question was: 2. As you may know, impeachment is the first step in the constitutional process for removing a president from office, in which possible crimes are investigated and charges are made. Do you think there is or is not justification for Congress to begin impeachment proceedings against President Bush at this time? 2007 Jul 6-8 Yes, is 36 No, is not 62 No opinion 3 MOE +/- 3% (Link) I don't know if you remember or not but back in May of this year ...

because at the time it was a popular decision and gave Gore a boost. Thanks to AlGore-08.com for the information reprinted from one of their earlier posts at (Link) Actual polls from 2000, showing Clinton was a drag on the ticket, and Lieberman was a boost. (Link) Here's some data from the 2000 exit polls: Those with an unfavorable view of Clinton as a person US 60% TN 62% AR 61% FL 56% Those who approve of Clinton’s performance as President and like him as a person US 35% TN 33% AR 33% ...

Do you remember the article written by Gail Sheehy and published in Vanity Fair before the 2000 election? Her article was called and it had some interesting vignettes about Bush's childhood that struck me while he was making his speech calling for an escalation of troops in Iraq. The part of the article that came to mind was the part recounting W's constant wanting of "do-overs" until he either wore out the other kids (they let him win so they could go home) or until his momma made him stop (b...

I propose a Rapture Amendment to the Constitution of the United States with the following provisions: 1. We will let you pass inane resolutions concerning abortion, gay marriage, etc.; 2. We will let you veto beneficial legislation; and 3. If you believe the rapture is imminent you have to start taking public transportation (because otherwise you might kill some of us who need to see the light after your gone) or you have to stay at home and keep your opinions to yourself. In return, t...

True story: I was working with an older Republican woman, very Republican, a few years ago. Her most cherished possession was a grip-and-grin photo of herself and Reagan. We were working on a project and the number 69 came up. She said that 69 was one of her favorite numbers. Then she grinned. It was like she had a secret. For the next fifteen minutes or so she kept saying "69" whenever she could and then hinted that it was her husband's favorite number too. I was getting a little uncomfo...

Five years ago, Al Gore was the much-mocked pol who blew a gimme with his stiff demeanor and know-it-all style. Today? C’mon, admit it: You like him again. By Ezra Klein Issue Date: 04.08.06 The most important speech of Al Gore’s post–non-presidency was neither well-covered nor particularly dramatic. He delivered it against a plain blue curtain, and when he finished, the applause rippled but never roared. None in attendance, however, would have dared call it boring. The address was the key...

Shortly after 8 a.m. this morning the wind started howling and then just grew. It sounded like a tornado to us. My husband ran out to roll up the car windows and says he saw the wind coming. It went as quickly as it came and the devastation around town is hit and miss. A couple of blocks over there was downed powerline, streets were closed off because of trees lying in the street and people were out walking around the neighborhood almost in shock at what it looked like around here. We've he...
