Believe me, I was never a Hillary supporter until I attended one of her early rallies when she was still "testing the waters" back in '06. Everything she said resonated with this disgruntled Ohioan, mostly because she focused on economic issues. I guess seeing the candidate in person sometimes leaves a much more lasting impression on a voter than seeing that candidate on TV. But I must say, I've been disappointed with Senator Clinton's debate performances and public speaking of late; in my mind, she hasn't yet matched the incredible speech she gave that one October day in a school gymnasium somewhere in the bowels of Ohio.

In retrospect, the Clinton years are pleasantly nostalgic for me. I miss the days when the federal government was running a budget surplus, when Madeleine Albright could handle North Korea single-handedly and sans cowboy diplomacy, and the Lewinsky affair was the talk of the day and not pre-emptive warfare.

To be fair, Obama is flat-out awesome in every respect except his relative lack of experience in national government. I will be proud to campaign for him if he gets the nomination.

In any case, the cynic in me says everyone's been infiltrated by special interests with the exception of Dennis Kucinich, because nobody wants to associate with the candidate who stepped off a UFO.


I actually happen to be most in line with Mr. Kucinich on most issues. One of those presidential-compatibility sites told me so.

Yeah, it's a shame he's not quite as electable. But all right, all right; just had to ask. I've got a few female friends from high school who are completely on the Hillary bandwagon. The joke is on them; Hillary's "feminist triumph" is now riding on her husband's coattails.

The "women for Hillary" phenomenon is a media fiction to my experience. Every woman I've spoken to regarding Senator Clinton still abhors her handling of the Lewinsky affair or otherwise doesn't like her because she's perceived as cold. Which is why that tear brimming in the corner of her eye helped her during the New Hampshire primary -- it proved in some people's minds that Hillary really isn't a cyborg.

the only line I could think of for that, regardless of how racist it seems, was "Nigga please."

Wow, what a coincidence. I actually submitted that picture to Sullivan's blog for picture of the day, since he had already posted a pic of a suspicious black girl looking at Bush.

You know, I can unabashedly say that I would actually build that given the money. The D's bridge is the best in Trek, far removed from the dim, spartan war crap that appeared after TNG. It's bright, comfortable...and illuminative.

*Tries to stop laughing hysterically*

Just thought I'd post this. Maybe it will bring as much incessant joy to your day as it did mine:

Another shocking bit of Revelation:


I think I'm starting to understand why people buy rag magazines now. According to that website, Communists are vampires by the way. Huh. I wonder what the hell that makes Capitalists?

Read the comments! There is such a powerful reaction to this. Here are some better comments:

Quote
you DO realize that Wikipedia goes around the world and not just the US, right? Freedom of Speech is limited to the US.

And we answered:

Quote
That's their fucking problem!

Quote
Sorry, but freedom of speech and information is the right of all people...because freedom is the right of all sentient beings.

Quote
Um, no. Wikipedia is based in the US and people from around the world CHOOSE to use it. If someone with 9th-century sensibilities is offended, I suggest they google for "Shariapedia" the next time they need information tailored to their delicate needs.

Quote
Freedom of speech is something guaranteed to everyone -- fuck you and anyone else who says otherwise.

Hahaha, YEAH!
