She hasn’t gone away you know…

From the BBC: Palin puts faith in God for 2012 Defeated Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin has said she hopes God will "show her the way" on any future bid for the White House.

Post-Election Meltdown

Many commentators (press and blogosphere) are taking great satisfaction from the meltdown and sniping among Republicans. My overwhelming reaction is one of relief that Obama won, accompanied by not a little satisfaction that Palin has to drag her nasty little ass back to Alaska.

Berlusconi = Entertaining Liability

Italy's PM, Silvio Berlusconi, has managed to screw-up his response to Obama's election victory, referring to Obama's "tan". Ahem.

Is this woman for real?

Sadly, yes. And she's not alone. I truly believe that democracy (one person, one vote) is the way to go... but watching this makes me want to propose IQ cut-offs for theright to particiate in elections! I snagged this from my most excellent neighbour, Gunderson Bee, in the belief that as many people as possible ...

McCain: Gifted Speaker

Yes, I lifted this from Wil Wheaton's blog. I thought there was insufficient overlap of our readership for this to be merely repitition... indeed, I think the more people that re-post this, the better.  A form of public service, if you will.Anything that illustrates McCain's inability to string a sentence together, just like his pal, ...

For those who think Obama has already won…
