From the 2008 DNC, this pic says it all – there is much to be thankful for this season.




Who to blame?

November 26, 2008

The strawberry picker or the banker?

“In Bakersfield, Calif., a Mexican strawberry picker with an income of $14,000 and no English was lent every penny he needed to buy a house for $720,000.”



New AG on torture

November 26, 2008

Incoming AG Eric Holder on torture and other Bush policies:

“The term ‘Leader of the Free World’ is bestowed upon the United States president because of theĀ  civil liberties and the rights we guarantee our people. It comes from the power of our values as a nation. For the last six years, the position of Leader of the Free World has been largely vacant. We have ceded much of our moral high ground, which our own military leaders will tell you is a vital asset in our struggle against terrorism.”

From last July. Recommended viewing.


I love you, David Letterman

You’ll definitely enjoy Caution: Funny Signs Ahead, by my friends at RoadTrip America.

My favorite is the motel in South Dakota that proudly advertises, “Imaginary Friends Stay Free.”

Funny Signs Ahead



November 23, 2008

From a recent AFP story:

“US elected officials scored abysmally on a test measuring their civic knowledge, with an average grade of just 44 percent. Ordinary citizens did not fare much better, scoring just 49 percent correct.”

I heard Palin got an 8, just ahead of Bush’s 0. Cheney just scribbled profanities all over the test then vomited sulfuric acid everywhere.
