The rest of the world can go back to being completely jealous of America. Yes...our majority white country just freely elected a black president; something no other democracy has ever done. Take that, Canada! Where's your Nubian warrior president? Your head of state is a boring white dude named Stephen Harper. And mine is a kick-ass black ninja named Barack Hussein Obama! - Bill Maher
As Sarah Palin
settles back into her job as the state's chief executive, a new ethics complaint
filed Tuesday says she's already improperly mixing her official duties and
broader political ambitions.
The charge: That Palin broke state ethics rules by holding national television interviews about her run for vice president from the governor's office.

Open letter to AHNC readers
Greetings from Finland .
For the last 8 years I have watched in disbelief at what the neo-cons of the Bush administration have done to the US . Floridas election debacle in 2000 made me a critic to the GOP and the illegal war in Iraq made me “pick up the boxing gloves”.
What really pissed me of though was the war-drums, before the Iraq war. The american press threw their brains and ethics in the dumpster, and became lapdogs for Emperor Bush. Not one major newspaper opposed the war. In my opinion the critics to the war, were found on the internet and on comedy central. It is tragically and morbidly funny that the most accurate real analysis of the situation that you found on the TV was aired between sockpuppets and muppets making prank calls.
From yellowcake uranium and Powells vial of anthrax to the aluminium tubes, the only people raising eyebrows were the bloggers.
AHNC, Bartcop, Buzzflash, Kos , were the ones that kept my faith to the american people alive. My faith for the Bush administration was dead and buried. It was a hard hard eight years.
Humour kept me believing in you, the american people, when the faith for your leaders was gone.
Why do I write this ? To me AHNC was one of the places I visited daily. The photoshops, collected links, replied letters, all pointed out that the creator of the site had something unique about her. I found no cynicism, no malicious slurs on the site. Lisa was fights with humour. That humour kept me coming here. Now that the elections are over and you have a leader that can form a complete sentence, I found it necessary to thank all the people that made it possible.
Please, donate some money, or spread the word around about the site. We need to keep this site online.
Kari X, Finland
Thank you so much for taking the time to write Kari.
I'm once again optimistic about my country and my brand new president that can form a complete sentence.
The trick in the future will be AHNC trying to expose those that can't form complete sentences.
Thanks again Kari, I needed that.
Fist Bumps all around. Thank you for your support!

mistake by not checking to see if the sack was tied down, and said she's still
smarting over the whole thing.
