10/8    Palin = Star Wars, Clinton = Star Trek: [io9]
        \_ Obama won his Senate race because of Star Trek, no joke.
           \_ How so?
              \_ The Illinois senator/incumbent/expected to win candidate
                 dropped out of the race after it became public his wife,
                 Jeri Ryan, divorced him because she got sick of him dragging
                 her to public sex clubs and him trying to nail her in front
                 of other people.  The Illinois Republican party couldn't
                 find anyone popular enough to run in his place... so they
                 invited Alan Keyes to move to Illinois and run for the empty
                 spot.  More people voted for Obama than Alan Keyes.
                 \_ You forgot that Obama sued to unseal their divorce records.
                  \_ No, the Chicago Tribune sued, on grounds that they were
                     unjustly sealed.  But why stop making shit up?
                     \_ He got his Obama and Liberal Media talking points
                        mixed up, you have to excuse him.
                 \_ Jeri Ryan as in 7 of 9? Wow.
                 \_ That's semi revisionist history going on.  Yes that all
                    happened, but my memory was it was a close race but
                    Obama was in the lead before the whole sexual scandal.
                    Also, Jack Ryan was not an incumbent.
                    \_ I can't tell reliably. I found a page by Michelle
                       Malkin about this subject. puke.
                 \_ People should be a little more understanding for someone
                    wanting to nail Jeri Ryan in public.
                    \_ I'd rather nail Jeri Thompson in public.
                       \_ I want her all to myself.

2/10    I like Woz, and I like iWoz, but let me tell ya, no one worships
        him because he has the charisma of an highly functioning
        Autistic person. Meanwhile, everyone worships Jobs because
        he's better looking and does an amazing job promoting himself
        as God. I guess this is not the first time in history. Case in
        point, Caesar, Napolean, GWB, etc. Why is it that people

11/2    California Uber Alles is such a great song
        \_ Yes, and it was written about Jerry Brown. I was thinking this
           as I cast my vote for Meg Whitman. I am independent, but I
           typically vote Democrat (e.g., I voted for Boxer). However, I
           can't believe we elected this retread.
           \_ You voted for the billionaire that ran HP into the ground

2/20    Ok serious question, NOT political.  This is straight up procedural.
        Has it been declared that we didn't find WMD in iraq? (think so).
        So why did we go into iraq (what was the gain), and if nobody really
        knows, why is nobody looking for the reason?
        \_ Political stability, military strategy (Iran), and to prevent
           Saddam from financing terrorism.

8/5     Regarding NKorea relesing the journalists, here's what I think the
        actual deal between Kim and Obama is:
        - Both agree that Kim needs to save, or gain, face to pave the way for
          his son's succession and for NK's stability.
        - Both agree that Obama doesn't like losing face by publicly

        Just like the way Clinton was the first African-American president.
        \_ Two wars, a banking, housing, and general economic crisis, a truly
           massive deficit, and now, Swine Flu.  Has any president except for
           Lincoln and Roosevelt faced worse?

        \_ Good thing the legislature passed the biggest tax increase in
           history!  That should solve it.
           \_ because cutting taxes has done such a great job so far!
                \_ it has.. giving mortgages to poor folks did us in

        failure. Especially when those rewards are subsidized by US taxpayers."
        \_ Turns out, he gets it.
           \_ Talk is cheap.
              \_ Freedom is strength.

        Note the steady growth of gov't jobs
        \_ What is this guys source for data? Overall employment in the

           have more than made up for that, I don't know.

           citizens and foreign governments. This Snowden guy must have
           been born yesterday to think he is revealing anything of import.

           It's a much better outcome than the alternative, which is 4 years
           of regress.
           \_ Can't argue with that.

The Republicans tried to replace Hillary Clinton in the hearts of millions of women voters by giving us Sarah Palin as John McCain's running mate. But Palin hasn't quite proved to be the perfect Hillary replacement. It's really the fact that Hillary is totally Star Trek, while Sarah is 100 percent Star Wars. If you ask Sarah how she'll fix the financial problems in the US, she'll say "trust your feelings," and tell you to put on a blindfold so you can see the problem more clearly. Hillary believes in working with the United Nations to keep everyone out of the Neutral Zone, and create treaties to keep our precious replicator technology from falling into the hands of civilizations that aren't advanced enough to cope with it. Meanwhile, Sarah Palin is part of a "team of mavericks," who have broken away from the Empire and are willing to do whatever it is that a maverick does, to get things done, even if it means hiding out on an ice planet somewhere. Sarah Palin uses Jedi mind tricks, Hillary Clinton makes a deal with the Borg. If you ask Sarah Palin a question she doesn't like, she'll wave her hand and say, "Those aren't the answers you're looking for." Meanwhile, when Hillary gets in a tight spot, she's not above calling up the Borg and trying to work out a little arrangement. She's been on the Borg, I mean board, of a bunch of big companies, so she knows how to work with anyone. Sarah Palin is Yoda, Hillary Clinton is Deanna Troi Sarah is full of wise sayings, even if they often don't make sense and lack a certain amount of grammar. She seems like harmless and a bit goofy, until she's under attack -- and then she'll start hopping around like a maniac. Hillary, meanwhile, acts kind of cold and uptight -- but she really, really, no really feels your pain. And Hillary stands by her guy, even though he's overweight and always running off to Risa to hook up with some Trill skank. Sarah Palin hangs out with Jar-Jar, Hillary Clinton knows Wesley Crusher If Sarah Palin ever gets to be president, you just know that Jar Jar Binks would be in charge of FEMA, or maybe become Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Sadly, we already got to see what a great job Jar Jar did when he got "promoted" to the Senate in Attack Of The Clones thanks to knowing the right people. Hillary belongs to that sophisticated, big-city, elite world where you can go off to cocktail parties in the 17th century just by clicking open a big door, and anything goes in your happy fantasy world. Meanwhile, Sarah Palin belongs in the small towns, where the real people are. Where you can go and have a drink, goshdarnit, with honest bounty hunters and the drinks come in two flavors: green and purple. Sure, it's a wretched hive of scum and villainy, but it's not fancy or anything. Sarah Palin is bacta, Hillary Clinton is the magic salt shaker Sarah Palin's health care plan involves losing your shirt and taking a bath. Hillary's health care plan involves a certain amount of waving a salt shaker around and hoping for the best. Sarah Palin has Jawas, Hillary Clinton has Ferengi In Sarah Palin's world, the biggest threat is guys who come along and try to steal your land-speeder or jack your robots when you're not looking. You need to keep your blaster ready and one eye on your binoculars in case they show up. In Hillary's world, the biggest danger is a bunch of crooked businessmen with funny ears who will pull any hustle to score some gold-pressed latinum.
