Watch Obama's Inauguration live on symbii (via hulu)

This is cool...Hulu's providing embed code so you can have people watch Obama's Inauguration live on your blog (it includes a link to get the embed code): It should appear on Hulu at this link, or you can probably double-click the embedded player above to get to the Hulu page.



Note to RNC: The election is over, idiots.

You know things are going well for the RNC when even Republicans are annoyed by them...that's the reaction they're getting to a video they put out trying to link President-elect Obama to Rod Blagojevich, since Rod just got caught for major corruption in Chicago. In a nearly three-minute...



McCain and Obama roasting each other

The media loves going on and on about negative attacks, so with Election Night just 2 days away, here's some funny and friendlier slams that Obama and McCain have made. The first two clips are from the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Dinner, and the last one is McCain on SNL last night. In...



Palin followup

I hate to keep harping on this, particularly because I usually don't enjoy political discussions, particularly in the internet medium. For the most part people that have certain views tend to keep those views and see others' views as irrational, and that really applies to everyone. And for those that...



Letterman gets snubbed by McCain, strikes back

Not just snubbed, he got dropped as part of the "campaign suspension" of McCain for the economy, but then McCain appeared in an interview with Katie Couric. Letterman proceeded to rail on him: Speaking of campaign suspension, McCain's smells all kinds of funny. He hasn't cast a vote in 5 months...



Sarah Palin is McCain's VP nominee

Yes, Sarah Palin who McCain only met once: And the one who is currently under an ethics investigation, keeps talking only about Alaska, and asks "what is it exactly that the VP does everyday?" She had this to say about Iraq: In an interview with Alaska Business Monthly shortly...



Seriously, McCain? I mean, really?

Yeah, politics are in full swing and candidates will frequently take jabs at each other. That is entirely unsurprising. What's amazing though, is the tactics of McCain's campaign, spending all of their time trying to convince everyone that Obama is overhyped and "too much of a celebrity" while failing...



Finally! (Hillary to suspend her campaign)

Just when it seemed like it would never happen: Of course, she's only "suspending" her campaign, which means she still keeps her delegates. We'll see if that has any additional implications, though I seriously doubt that she'd be a VP option. But uniting her supporters with Obama will be a big...



Huckabee is hilarious, not presidential nominee

SNL returned to air last night after 4 months off due to the writers' strike. It was a decently funny episode, but Mike Huckabee led to its funniest moment: NBC link in case the YouTube vid gets taken down He may not be great presidential material, but he's definitely hilarious, so it's...



Voting in the Illinois primaries

It's hard not to get swept up in the excitement of the presidential race, though I'm glad I didn't pay much attention to the pundits and their commentary, both on Hilary's struggle before the New Hampshire primaries (a bunch of stupid, baseless hype), and then on her crying affecting votes (in my opinion,...



The White House lost emails

So the government can record phone conversations and monitor internet activity of millions, but somehow they "lost" something like 5 million White House emails?!? Whoops, that was convenient. The White House said yesterday that it could not find an unknown number of e-mails written by Karl Rove and...



Make more babies

dave submitted an article from Media Matters about how FOX News' John Gibson says Americans need to have more babies. On The Big Story, John Gibson urged viewers to "[d]o your duty. Make more babies," because he had found out, from a recently released report, that nearly half of all children under...



Israelis not to be outdone by Iranians

dave submitted an article from Haaaaaaaaretz (Haaretz) about an Israeli competition for the most anti-Semetic cartoon. After hearing about the decision by an Iranian newspaper to join the international Muslim protest and open a competition for cartoons about the Holocaust, illustrator Amitai Sandy...



The $223 million "bridge to nowhere"

dave submitted an article in the Washington Post about a fight in the Senate over the construction of certain bridges under the highway spending plan just passed by Bush. Senator Tom Coburn of Oklahoma is trying "to eliminate some $450 million in federal funds for Alaskan bridges and shift $75 million...



Resigned FEMA chief still getting paid - as consultant

According to a CNN article, former FEMA chief Michael Brown is being investigated by Congress for being kept on the federal payroll after his resignation. Brown told congressional investigators Monday that he is being paid as a consultant to help FEMA assess what went wrong in the aftermath of Hurricane...



The Nation rips Bush, his mom, & Republicans a new one

The magazine The Nation has a blog entry that describes Barbara Bush's visit to New Orleans and her ludicrous reactions, and another blog entry that depicts the various ways Republicans in the upper levels of our government have tried to divert attention and blame from themselves for the obvious mishandling...
