6/5     Rezko convicted of 16 counts of corruption        Obama: "This isn't the Tony Rezko I knew."  Now was Wright the pastor
        "he knew"  Who does this guy know?
         \_ Ahh, smell the desperation.  Is this really the best you have
            right now?
        \_ Ahh, smell the desperation.  Is this really the best you have right
           \_ Starting in 2003, Rezko was one of the people on Obama's U.S.
              Senate campaign finance committee, which raised more than $14
              million. Rezko threw an early fundraiser for Obama, and that
              fundraiser was instrumental in providing Obama with seed money
              for his U.S. Senate race. Obama has since identified over
              $250,000 in campaign contributions to various Obama campaigns as
              coming from Rezko or close associates, and has in consequence
              donated almost two thirds of that amount to charity.
              \_ This is why we need campaign finance reform. Every politician
                 has to cater to people like this. Remember Bush and Enron?
                 McCain and the Keating Five? They all have to do this just
                 to stay in office.
           \_ No, I just thought it was funny.  This guys is surrounded by
              hustlers, and he just keeps saying "That's not the ____ I knew."
              He's either an idiot or a hustler.  Which do you think he is?
              \_ Surrounded by hustlers!  Everywhere he turns!  Pimps and
                 drug dealers!
           \_ Try this, "Republican State Senator involved in land for cash
              deal with power broker convicted on 16 corruption charges!"
              You'd be the first one screaming for that (R) guy's head and
              telling us how this proves (R) are all evil.  But in this case
              it is Obama so there's no problem with his prior actions or
              associations.  I don't have a horse in this race but I do find
              your comments intellectually dishonest.  I don't see how Obama
              is any different than McCain and his dirty deals or Clinton and
              her dirty deals or the rest of the Washington insiders and their
              dirty deals.  I fail to see how anyone can look at Obama and
              give him such a big pass on *everything* so blindly just because
              he sounds good reading from a prepared speech or teleprompter
              and talks about hope and change a lot.
              \_ But this isn't about Obama.  If Rezko is guilty he should
                 pay the price, but you are seriously reaching to pin
                 this on Obama.  It's not like Rezko was convicted in
                 corruption as part of his relationship with Obama.
                 (And yes I know about the land deal, it seems like a weak
                 story at best right now.)
                 \_ P.S.  As to if it was an R, nah I wouldn't.  Some here
                    might, but they'd be wrong too.  If Obama was going to
                    the mat for Rezko I'd be upset, but I don't see any
                    evidence of that.
                 \_ *cough* Abramoff *cough*
                   \_ Wait, you think this is anything like Abramoff?
                      Seriously?  You are that blinded by the need to
                      hate Obama?
        \_ do we really need a president who can't observe worth a damn?
           \_ Judgement!
        \_ The Hillary wikipedia page has a paragraph about how Hillary
           worked for a Known Communist for a summer straight out of law
           \_ "Known Communist?" Are we travelling back in fucking time?
              Aren't the new enemies the brown people from Arabia?
              \_ I think we're moving towards pasty Han people.

6/4     I think I got up in the middle of the night and deleted my
        pron RAID5.  then went back to bed.  oddest thing ever
        \_ Are you taking Ambien?
           \_ No.  I'm just crazy.

6/5     When setting http cookies, what is the difference between and ?  Is it just to qualify for
        the two-dot rule?  Put another way, is there a semantic difference
        between domain=. and domain=  TIA

6/5     It's pretty amazing to read this and think "wow, that was only 42 years
        42 years ago there was regular rioting in Chicago because of laws
        saying it was illegal to have neighborhoods where you couldn't buy
        a home unless you were white.  That's pretty mind blowing.
         \_ the phrasing of this is interesting.  It is also subtly wrong.
            \_ How so?
