9/24    Cindy McCain's outfit wasn't $300k after all
        http://tinyurl.com/49opdu
        \_ Why should anyone care? She's rich, she can afford whatever
           jewelry she puts on her, why should that bother anyone?
           \_ Because her husband is running around trying to tar Obama
              as too elite to be president.
           \_ But Obama is some uppity elitist while McCain is a good old
              boy just like you.
           \_ I don't know why anyone would care, but much was made of it at
              the time.
           \_ Weren't you the guy making fun of Edward's $400 haircut?
        \_ I wish it was still a month ago!

9/24    At least it isn't a 400 dollar haircut!
        http://www.usmagazine.com/news/john-mccain-uses-american-idol-makeup-artist
        (To be honest, I don't care about the prices, but I am sad that we
        had days or network news coverage about a 400 dollar haircut when
        that's just part of the price of being a national politician.  And
        I do wish the fake outrage from the shitheads on the right got the
        same silent treatment as the fake outrage from the shitheads on the
        left.)

        "These two entities -- Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac -- are not facing any
        kind of financial crisis," said Representative Barney Frank of
        Massachusetts, the ranking Democrat on the Financial Services
        Committee. "The more people exaggerate these problems, the more
        pressure there is on these companies, the less we will see in terms of
        affordable housing."    (said in 2003)
        \_ yawn, Barney Frank is a slimebucket.  maybe not as bad as Lieberman,
           but up there. -Dem
        \_ yep, Barney Frank is a slimebucket.  maybe not as bad as Lieberman,
           but up there.  Frank is also BFF with Hank Paulson. -Dem
        \_ in 2003 were they?
           \_ Read the article.  Yes.
        \_ What did Barney Frank do besides be extremely gay?
        \- BFRANK isnt awesome like GOPAT but he is a far far far far cry
           from LIEBERMAN who is basically a traitor [which is the Occam's
           from Lieberman who is basically a traitor [which is the Occam's
           Razor explanation of his behavior]. Just like CDOs have problems,
           FMae and FMac have problem too, but the REAL PROBLEMS are CDS
           which is insurnace not regulated as insurance [i.e. with reserve
           requirements] and "new unregulated entities" entering into
           which are insurnace not being regulated as insurance [i.e. with
           reserve requirements] and "new regulated entities" entering into
           the securitiezed mortgage mkt. If you want to understand this stuff
           read the economists, not random journalists with undergrad econ or
           english degree from Princeton who then went to CJS (clearly there
           are some journos who are very good and look at the data and read
           the research (in other fields say david cay johnson or laurie
           garrett, or the boston dood who did the signing statement story
           on BUSHCO) but most of them are just echo chamaber hacks ... e.g.
           the all the journos who missed the boat on the entitlement problem
           being focused on medicare not social security]. ok tnx. --jsl

9/24    Why is nscd going crazy?  DoS?
        \- back in the solaris say 2.5-2.6 era, it had both some bugs
           (some malformed nis maps made it go crazy) and architectural
           flaws in the IPC/door+threading mechanism. if you are running
           OS-recent, dunno, but you can trace it.
           \_ Yeah, I think it's just buggy.  I've restarted it, and it seems
              to be working again for now.  --mconst

        of the debate ?
        \_ what about it?       -mccain guy
        \_ Obama, always taking the chance to talk rather than act.
           \_ Yeah, now what McCain would do is get a group of mercenaries
              together, arm up, and invade those investment banks once
              and for all.
           \_ Yawn.
        \_ He hasn't figured out the answers to the potential questions yet.

9/24    McCain has the 3rd worst attendance record in Congress.
        The two above him are DEAD.
