Woot woot! Friday!!!! ‘Nuff said…
- As more details come out about the killing of Arkansas Democratic Party chairman Bill Gwatney, our thoughts and prayers continue to be with his family and friends with hope questions can be answered as to why…
- “President” Bush is warning the Russians about “bullying”… insert your own snark about a pot and a kettle here.
- In an attempt to heal scars left from a contentious primary season, Sen. Obama’s campaign has agreed to put Sen. Clinton’s name into the nomination hopper… (and with that the hopes of thousands of
Ron PaulClinton fanatics have risen that their candidate will rise from the ashes and grab the nomination. Note to them, it would take a confluence of Aristotelian proportions for that to happen, so don’t hold your breath…)
- Rev. Rick Warren said that his upcoming talks Saturday with Sens. McCain and Obama will be aimed at asking them “heartland questions.” (What the HELL is a ‘heartland question’, and how can you ask those questions in California?)
- Oprah is headed to the Democratic Convention… not sure why I should care.
- Even though it could be a signal of no significance, the media is jumping on the face that Sens. Evan Bayh (IN) and Joe Biden (DE) are scheduled to speak at the Democratic convention Wednesday night — which happens to be the night the vice presidential candidate is slated to speak… (How many times before have individuals who were on the veep short list spoken on the same night as the VP candidate. The media should stop trying to make news and simply report it…)
- In news that will end well, the US and Poland have reached an accord to install an American missile defense base on Polish territory… Russia sees this, rightfully so, as a reaction to their Georgian invasion and are pissed, saying that the move would “worsen relations with the United States.” (Lovely… forget Iran, North Korea or Pakistan… now it’s Russian… again)
- Despite the fact that some donations to charity groups operated by the Saudi government “ended up in the hands of Al-Qaeda,” a federal court ruled yesterday that Saudi Arabia “could not be held liable” for the 9/11 attacks…
- And have we mentioned? That with every word he says, the appearance of McCain being senile increase 10 fold? During a question-and-answer session with Walter Isaacson yesterday McCain said Guantanamo Bay is “one of the nicest places in the world to live in.” (Um… okay? Hyperbole much? Oh wait, you do...)
