10/9    In a campaign with plenty of gaffes to go around, John McCain added
        one to the mix Wednesday. The Republican vice-presidential candidate
        addressed a crowd in Pennsylvania as “my fellow prisoners.”
        McCain made the slip while discussing his plans for the economy,
        including health care and energy policies. “Across this country, this
        is the agenda I have set before my fellow prisoners,” he said. The
        prepared remarks, which the campaign distributed during the speech,
        showed he meant to say “citizens.” The Arizona senator was a prisoner
        of war, spending nearly six years in Vietnam. He often talks about his
        experiences on the campaign trail, albeit briefly.

12/5    Romney is right after all -- our military does need more horses and
        bayonets!  http://www.csua.org/u/y3j  Romney for 2012!
        \_ I'd never considered Romney's campaign as an ad for Revolution,
           but I guess that makes as much sense anything else.
        \_ The tax cut removal is ill timed.
        \_ holy crap. This is scary. US troops are most vulnerable as it is

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

        "Arabs, who would seem to have an even stronger race claim than
        Hispanics do, are trumpeting their own write-in campaign because the
        Census by default counts them as white ... Ironically, part of the
        problem is that Arab immigrants a century ago petitioned the Federal
        Government to be categorized as white to avoid discrimination."

5/26    Is it correct to call someone the daughter of Puerto Rican
        "immigrants"? Seems wrong to me. Puerto Ricans get US Passports.
        \_ Yes it is correct.
           \_ Thanks! Obama immigrated from Hawaii, right?
              \_ Not the same.  Doubly not the same in the early 50s.  Go watch
                 yourself some West Side Story.

5/13    THE DEMOCRAT SOCIALIST PARTY!  Oh man, this is awesome.
        \_ The GOP is Godwining itself. It is an amazing thing to watch.
        \_ GOP is Godwining itself. It is an amazing thing to watch.
           \_ What's actually hilarious is that you believe this is some new
              kind of phenomenon that has never happened before.
                \_ Like when?  Say in the last 60 years?

        How much did the Dubyas and the Clintons make?
        \_ Obama wrote two bestselling books right around that time.
           \_ But Obama wasn't that famous before the presidental election
              campaign in 2008.

12/11   Congress makes me sick. They forked over $700B to the banks with
    less hand-wringing. $15B is chump change. Just do it. They don't
    deserve it, but neither did the banks.
        \_ The $700B was a loan.
           \_ and we're gonna get every penny back, with interest!  or how
              about this:  it would have been much worse if we hadn't loaned
