Gas was at $2.33 before Dems took control of house
I am not saying it is the Govt. fault our gas prices rose, I don't know much about that sorta stuff, but if there is going to be a blame game then I think it important to know more of the story.
UPDATE: Unemployment rate during the Bush years bests the Clinton years. Here

I was going to write a blog on Clinton's dishonest and lame ass jab when she said
"John McCain is my friend and colleague, but he still doesn't believe women deserve equal pay for equal work."
but I snapped out of it and thought "Forget it! I need some Bowie."
Anyone watch Clinton last night? Wow, really worth watching. She was a completely different performer than she was a few months ago and she made me smile for two reasons...
1. After last nights speech, I was glad to know Barack beat her.
2. After last nights speech, I think many Dems were feeling buyers remorse.
Bill is speaking tonight and I think it is only going to compound the feeling that the Dems might have made a mistake. Obama is going to have to really dazzle them on Thursday if he doesn't want to be overshadowed by the Clintons, which he could do, but I am not sure if he will pull it off.
Hillary spent most of last nights speech talking about her personal accomplishments and very little about Obama himself. Obama has no accomplishments and no such luxury. What will he say? More about hope and change? It will be worth tuning in.
UPDATE: "Is this from the Onion?" quipped a McCain adviser Sweet!
2nd UPDATE: Double sweet! With the amount of times the camera panned to Bill last night, ya know this one is going to sting, that is, if he really does skip it..

Here is a new McCain ad
and here is a T.Rex video, which has nothing to do with this post. Well it sorta does. The song is called "Deborah" and the lady in McCain's video is named Debra... OK, that is stupid. Again, nothing to do with this post.

Didn't get to see the opening ceremony, but I heard it was really nice, but not the one last night. Some lame ass "Up With People" performance with bike helmets. What was that all about?
Oh well, so it goes.
Anyway, this post wouldn't be fun if it weren't political.
Over the last week, Obama praised China for their wonderful infrastructure and over at Conservative Punk we are reminded why it is so grand.
"People of faith are being engaged in the convention in a new and robust way ,and it's because of Senator Obama's acknowledgment that people of faith and values have an important place in American public life," said Joshua DuBois, the Obama campaign's religious affairs director.
Well thank you, Barack. Wouldn't have known that unless the chosen one brought it to our attention.
The article really makes a point that the DNC looks religiously diverse, too.
How I imagine it will go down.
"Ummmm... can I get a couple jews over here and add a sprinkle of Hindus.
yes, yes, yes that is good. And lets see... ummm... wait, I change my mind. Hindus come over here and replace them with muslims. Ya know, muslims and jews sittin' together. Spiritual harmony and what not.
(Man, that was an easy one. What was I thinkin't puttin' Hindus there to begin with)
What else, what else, oh yeah! the wiccans and the atheists. Need to make them happy. and don't forget the buddhists.
HEY, FUCK YOU MORMON! We don't need your kind here. Evangelicals can stay... we need the vote, but make sure you leave the hayfork and your sister, I mean, your wife at home. (God, I crack me up)" Read this

Gateway Pundit points out that Obama compared U.S.A. to Russia by saying
“They (Russia) can’t charge into other countries. Of course it helps if we are leading by example on that point.”
But in a way, isn't he also comparing Georgia to Iraq? (of course he is not comparing Georgia to Afghanistan because that is a war he agrees with) The idea that invading Georgia is the same as invading Iraq just proves how completely clueless this man is.
Did the leader of Georgia spend $26,000.00 per suicide bomber in Israel/Palestine?
Did Georgian leaders defy, how many was it again... 11 U.N. resolutions?
Did Georgian leaders kill thousands of their own people with chemical warfare?
Did they attack a neighborhing country because, according to 60 minutes, Sheik Jaber Al Ahmed Al Sabah of Kuwait insulted an Iraqi woman?
I could go on, but I think you get the point.

"I would not consider Frosted Flakes the food of an Olympian," said nutritionist Rebecca Solomon of Mount Sinai Medical Center.
"I would rather see him promoting Fiber One. I would rather see him promoting oatmeal. I would even rather see him promoting Cheerios."
Wait a minute, Ms. Solomon. What if Phelps doesn't eat Fiber One or Oatmeal or Cheerios? We all saw his home video, the Fucker was eating Lucky Charms.
"Russia's Foreign Ministry issued a statement saying the U.S. missile shield plans are clearly aimed at weakening Russia.
The U.S. says the missile defense system is aimed at protecting the U.S. and Europe from future attacks from states like Iran."
I don't know which to believe, they both sound right to me. But when you have Russia as the only country really complaining, it makes me wonder what they are so nervous about.
UPDATE: The new Soviet Union Missile shield in Syria?
to be President some day.
> Both of her parents, liberal Democrats, were standing there, so I asked
her, 'If you were President what would be the first thing you would do?'
> She replied, 'I'd give houses to all the homeless people.' 'Wow what a
worthy goal.' I told her, 'You don't have to wait until you're President to do that. You can come over to my house and mow,
pull weeds, and rake my yard, and I'll pay you $50. Then I'll take you over to the grocery store where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the $50 to use toward a new house.'
> She thought that over for a few seconds 'cause she's only 6. And while her
Mom glared at me, the little girl looked me straight in the eye and asked, 'Why doesn't the homeless guy come over and do the work, and you can just pay him the $50?'
> And I said, 'Welcome to the Republican Party.'
> Her folks still aren't talking to me.

Jodee Berry of Panama City, FLA., sits with her toy Yoda at her lawyer's office wednesday. Berry, a former Hooters waitress, has sued the restaurant where she worked saying she was promised a new Toyota for winning a beer sales contest in April. Berry, 26, believed that she had won a new car, but she was blindfolded, led to the parking lot and presented a toy Yoda, the little green guy from Star Wars.
Thanks to Ka-Pow for that.
Alas, I don't think he would handle it very well. Ya see, the man has no spine and is incapable of making the tough decisions.
Case in point, he had Hillary beat. Finished! and now he has allowed her to come back from the dead and take his spotlight. Reminding us all who he really is.
Now, the reason Clinton's name was added to the nomination, as far as the Dems are concercened, is for party unity, but Chelsea is giving an introduction at the convention, and both Bill and Hillary are giving speeches. This is now the Clinton's convention. Networks and cable organization will all cut back to the convention when these three speak.
Obama has castrated himself, but then again, one can't remove what they never really had to begin with.

Anyway, speaking of rain, I have to act as a little storm cloud by posting this quote from George Will.
"This year's August upheaval coincides, probably not coincidentally, with the world's preoccupation with that charade of international comity, the Olympics. For only the third time in 72 years (Berlin 1936, Moscow 1980), the games are being hosted by a tyrannical regime, the mind of which was displayed in the opening ceremony featuring thousands of drummers, each face contorted with the same grotesquely frozen grin. It was a tableau of the miniaturization of the individual and the subordination of individuality to the collective. Not since the Nazi's 1934 Nuremberg rally, which Leni Riefenstahl turned into the film "Triumph of the Will," has tyranny been so brazenly tarted up as art.
A worldwide audience of billions swooned over the Beijing ceremony. Who remembers 1934? Or anything."
I think George Will hit the nail on the head. All the polish and gloss should not allow us to forget the Communists, Tibet, political prisoners, religious persecution, no liberty (i.e. private property) or lack of freedom of speech. And though they are becoming capitalists more and more all the time, lets not forget that the Republic of China was created from a violent blood bath.

Third way is more Socialist than Centrist. There's already enough rules and regulations. Painful events are natural and necessary. The more we try to eliminate a truth of life, the more band-aids there are, and the messier things become.

Georgia has about 2000 soldiers in Iraq today (third largest of all other countries) and though they have announced they are pulling em out, their soldiers have been battle trained for 5 years.
Come to think of it, of the 21 coalition allies in Iraq, 12 either share the border with and/or were once occupied by Russia.
Ukraine, Poland, Slovakia, Georgia, Estonia, Latvia, Kazahkstan, Azerbaijan, Hungary, Bulgaria, Czech Republic and Romania
Edwards, Clinton, Newsome, soon to be Obama I'm sure.
Do you see what I am driving at? Couldn't the article spend a little more time informing the reader about other details rather than selling it as a "Ho-hum. Just another domestic dispute."?
"He always demanded that female workers signalled to him with their eyes that they desperately wanted to be laid on the boardroom table as soon as he gave the word," she earlier told the court. "I didn't realise at first that he wasn't speaking metaphorically."

Get Drunk And Vote 4 McCain
The idea of this blog is to say that "McCain is all we have for a GOP candidate, so we might as well vote for him." (not a direct quote) But if it is too tough for you to do, make sure you have a few drinks first.
The blog points out all the stupid things McCain and other Conservatives do and then gives you the recommended drink amount, at the end of each post, to help with the pain. (I think the milk is recommended when a Democrat does something stupid and helps the GOP's liver... not certain)
And I also think the site was started by Ann Coulter.

But don't read this AP article about it. It will only anger you.
This one is far better.
Also, More than 100,000 rare gorillas found in Congo and some are even carrying the features of Dian Fossey. (I might have made that last part up)
You gotta love Mexico. Not only are they willing to cut down on cow farts to prevent Global warming, but they do it by putting bulls to death in front 1000's of screaming fans. And they aren't age bigots about it either. 6 year olds can join in on the fun and 1000's of screaming fans will be witness if the kids gets gored.
Ok, so I exagerated a little. 6 year olds only fight the calves. (no horns)
But this 10 year old doesn't. This is Michelito Lagravere the kid the article speaks about. Watch this fight and you will see a couple of close calls.
If you get bored, fastforward to 4:10 for the kill.
Here is an Obama quote
"Andy Warhol said we all get our 15 minutes of fame," says Barack Obama. "I've already had an hour and a half. I mean, I'm so overexposed, I'm making Paris Hilton look like a recluse." (in case you didn't catch it, it isn't just Obama playing the race card card. )

I'll be voting from Paris or maybe even Canada, whichever. FYI: Canada is not America. (you stupid, stupid hillbilly hick.)
Anywho, TTFN and remember to Vote Obama.

"the paper's (New York Times) editors seem to have all the intelligence and reason of the average Daily Kos diarist sitting at home in his mother's basement and ranting into the ether between games of dungeons and dragons."
Read the whole thing. It is hilarious.
Anyway, it seems that some people think that hogs have rights too. Well at least the same amount of rights as the 11 year old who shot this one. here
I know, I know, just a bunch of jerks who are bored with life and so they are picking on the kid.
I am not worried. It is clear he can take care of himself.
Ahhh, it has probably already been done a thousand times before.
