I wonder what Sarah Palin was thinking when she named her children? For example, her oldest son she named Track, as in "track" down and shoot? Or her youngest daughter Piper, as in "Piper Cub" airplane?  Her infant son is named Trig, short for Trigger or trigonometry? Inquiring minds want to know.



Sarah Palin calls herself a “hockey mom.” Which means we’re in good shape if the U.S. ever needs to body check Russian President Medvedev. – Will Durst

John McCain’s V.P. pick is the governor of Alaska, a unknown hockey mom named Sarah Palin that no one ever heard of. The only other job she had in politics was the mayor of a small town known as Wasilla, Alaska, and now she has the opportunity to be on a ticket opposite of Barack Obama, the first black man she’s ever seen. - Bill Maher


Turdblossom Plays The Doofus Card


 If Sen. Joe Biden was hurt that Republican operative Karl Rove called him a “big blowhard doofus” at an event in Minneapolis Monday, he didn’t show it.

On hearing the news, Biden grinned and said “he’s a great American.”


"Thirty-eight million people watched Barack Obama at the stadium in Denver. There were 84,000 full-throated supporters who turned out there at the field. The Republicans fired back today. They say, 'We can also fill a stadium with thousands of screaming people. For example, the Superdome during Hurricane Katrina.'" –Bill Maher


Obama Gets Convention Fist Bump


CBS/New York Times has Obama with a slight bounce, up 48%-40%. An earlier poll, showed Obama up 45%-42%. CNN/Opinion Research, however, has Obama up just one point, 49%-48%

Both surveys were conducted Aug. 29-31. Obama's convention speech was made on Thursday, Aug. 28th; Palin was picked the next morning, Friday, Aug. 29th.

The five-point post-convention jump is the biggest for a Democrat in the CBS poll since 1996 when Bill Clinton also saw a 5-point increase.

I think this is pertinent because McCain has been running this campaign based on, we’re at war, it’s a dangerous world out there. The Democrats don’t get that. I, John McCain, am the only one standing between the bloodthirsty Al Qaedas and you. But if I die, this stewardess can handle it.

Bush-Prison-Torture News


When they were vetting Sarah Palin for the VP job, like three seconds ago, she said, quote, I’m not making this up, “What is it exactly that the V.P. does every day?” Let me field that for you, Sarah. They start wars, they enrich their friends, they subvert the Constitution, and they shoot people in the face. That’s what the vice president does.- Bill Maher


In Memory Of Hurricane Katrina




How I spent Labor Day 2008



In the past 10 days, since tropical storm Fay and Hurricane Gustav dumped about 10 inches of rain here in southeastern Alabama, I have had three leaks in my main water line. Seen above: Frank, my friend who farms the fields surrounding my property/jack of all trades and his nephew, PJ (future Auburn middle linebacker) dug a new trench and will replace the old pipeline with new PVC pipe. Hopefully we can get this completed before Hurricane Hanna, Ike and Josephine arrive. I hope you had a wonderful Labor Day, too!

"She's not bad looking. She looks like one of those women in the Van Halen videos who takes off her glasses, shakes out her hair, and then all of a sudden, she's in high heels and a bikini. All of a sudden, I am FOR drilling in Alaska." --Jimmy Kimmel on Gov. Sarah Palin
