NEW YORK (AFP) — Barack Obama's campaign expressed outrage over a satirical cartoon on the cover of The New Yorker magazine depicting the Democratic...


I can't believe Obama is mad about a cartoon. I'm not worried about his black skin, I'm worried about his thin skin.

"John McCain's economic adviser, former Sen. Phil Gramm, is under fire for calling Americans a bunch of whiners. He also said the country is in a mental recession. Apparently we're experiencing a mental slowdown. Kind of like President Bush." --Jay Leno

Saving The Oil

Disturbing News



The Driller-in-chief


President Bush on Monday lifted an executive ban on offshore oil drilling and challenged Congress to follow suit, aiming to turn the enormous public frustration about gasoline prices into political leverage. Democratic lawmakers rejected Bush's plan as a symbolic stunt.


"President Bush signed a bill giving phone companies immunity for letting the government spy on its customers without a warrant. Isn't that unbelievable? President Bush said 9/11 changed everything. And you know, he's right, because violating the Constitution and breaking the law used to mean jail time. Apparently no more." –Jay Leno








Republican-Shenanigans News





"The issue boils down pretty simply. If you are the Obama campaign, would you prefer to be spending this week talking about his Iraq plan, which is their message of the week beginning today, or dealing with the New Yorker visuals, I suspect they would rather be talking about their change plan for Iraq." - Former Al Gore spokesman Chris Lehane

...really miss you. I feel like an addict going thru withdrawal when you don't post. lol I hope your day off went well.



Awww, big hug Ben. As you know, I rarely take a day off unless it is very important.


Yesterday was a day of extreme highs and lows. I drove my son to the Atlanta airport to begin his yearlong journey studying in China. (fist bump to his grandmother for giving him this life enriching opportunity)  I told him I wanted two Chinese grandchildren by this time next year. ;)

One funny incident did occur at the airport. My son and I were posing for a last picture before he entered the security checkpoint, a TSA official, courteously told his father who was taking the photograph, not to take a picture of the security checkpoint and to turn the opposite way for the photograph, which we instantly did. I love Atlanta airport, they are so polite.





I hope you had a good time today
