Open Thread


Going to spend some time with my wife and daughter today.  Lighter than usual blogging.  So get outside, look at a tree or something.

Or tawk amongst yourselves.

I’d stick around, but now that Sunshine Sarah has finished speaking, I’m done.

Talk amongst yourselves.

State polls are all over the place, but the trend definitely appears to be heading in Obama’s direction.

Turns out the Hoover once said the fundamentals of our economy remain strong.

If you squint, McCain kind of looks like Hoover.

Anyone notice that civil discourse is going to hell in a handbasket?

Discuss.

Nightly Open Election Thread


To paraphrase the Talking Heads,

Well we know about Palin
But we dont know where she’s been
And we know what she ain’t knowin
And that she has five children
And were not really stupid
And she knows what she wants
And the future ain’t certain
Give her time to work out another lie

She’s on a bridge to nowhere
And then she lied
Takin that bridge to nowhere
Ban books she tried

We’re on a bridge to nowhere
We’re on a bridge to nowhere
We’re on a bridge to nowhere

Yeah, I know, not very good.  Maybe you can come up with something better.  Talk(ing Heads) among yourselves.

Latest Gallup daily tracker has McCain up by 5, which is exactly where he should be at this point, people.  So stop hyperventilating and start talking amongst yourselves.

I’m at my godson’s birthday party today, and there’s a very real chance we’ll lose power because of Hurricane Sarah Hanna.

So have at it.  But be nice.

Open Thread and a Superfluous Go-Go’s Reference


Vacation, all I ever wanted,
Vacation, had to get away
Vacation, meant to be spent alone not blogging…

As I mentioned earlier today, I’m actually on vacation.  So I’m going to take a break for the rest of the day (and evening).

Tawk amongst yerselves.

Oh, and I still think Wilford Brimley would have been a better choice for McCain.
