George McCain?



Keeping his ties very close with the current regime cannot be good for his campaign. What does everyone think?

The "Id"-iocy of the Unconscious Mind...

A couple of months ago, Hayden and I were having dinner at Cici's pizza. Hayden will bounce between the small game room and the table to occasionally take a bite between dumping quarters for superballs and plastic bling. At the table next to me was two teenage girls embedded in conversation covering the expected range of topics. I tried to drown out the chaos by watching the news until the girls conversation switched to something more interesting, the democratic nomination. Believe it or not, it was back in early March that Obama had been placed in a position to inevitably win. "He will be shot, " one of the girls said to the other. "A black won't be president for long." Maybe I am naive, but this was the first time, this horrible potentiality had crossed my mind. I spent the next few moments wondering if I was more uncomfortable with the subject or the fact the girl made the statement with the same tone and inflection as her previous blabber about "The Hills."

Funny, but foul.

This is a pretty funny little video, but I might note that it contains some awfully naughty words and violates Godwin's law.

A short description: an imagined conversation between Hillary Clinton and her advisors.

I might note that the video and audio has also been attributed to a certain European leader and his love of the Dallas Cowboys.

Our Next President...






A brief pause for chemistry

Highlight of the day:

Hearing a Nobel laureate (when asked to comment/improve on a low yielding reaction) say "You know, it's hard to help improve a reaction when you don't know the byproducts. What else is in there?"

Someday, I'm going to wake up in a cold sweat in the middle of the night, asking "Where's the rest of the material?"

We now return to you to your regularly scheduled Obama-hoping.

Hoth and Endor Superdelegates Support Obama...

Unfortunately, Endor is destroyed on May 31, 2008 (nuclear option).

Prediction: NC, Obama by 7, Indiana, Clinton by 5. Obama increases lead in both delegate count and popular vote but Clinton claims victory.

Indiana is an open primary. If you are registered to vote in Indiana (R, D, or I) please vote.
