I wish I had something cogent to say to this, but I just don’t. I’m literally left speechless.

I started watching the DNC rules committee meeting this morning.

Then I went fishing.

I came back and watched some more.

Went to band practice.

Came back and the committee was at “lunch”.

So I watered my lawn. Pulled some weeds. Made dinner. etc.

Then they came back and voted.

And now it’s FINALLY over.

The committee basically agreed to seat all of the delegates from both Florida and Michigan and only give them half a vote.

Things I learned from watching this today:

1. Harold Ickes is a total tool. Not only was he a dick to every pro-obama […]

This is madness.

Howard Dean may hope that the “healing will begin today,” but two blocks away from the northwest Washington Marriott where the DNC’s Rules and Bylaws Committee is meeting right now to try to figure out Florida and Michigan, the Hillary protesters are occupying an utterly alternate (and healing-free) universe: a universe in which one of the big lawn rally’s speakers yells that the Democratic Party no longer is in the business of “promoting equality and fairness for all”; in which a Hillary supporter with two poodles shouts, “Howard Dean is a leftist freak!”; in which a […]

This is so bizarre, I almost can’t believe it’s true. The SITE Intelligence Group (who monitors terrorist communications as a service) released a report that – allegedly – said the following image was created as part of a pro-terror video.

Media reports: “The SITE Intelligence Group said that the image, showing a ruined Capitol Building in Washington, was created by extremists as part of discussions about the feasibility of nuclear strikes against the US and Britain.” In reality, it’s a bit of concept art from the upcoming Fallout 3 – a game I’m quite looking […]

On this day in 1759 Pennsylvania lawmakers passed a law banning the performance of all plays.

“The law was adopted in response to pressure from religious groups, particularly Baptists, who found theatrical performances immoral.”

I just saw this picture of Obama …

The book in his hand is The Post-American World by Fareed Zakaria.

The Economist said the book “will serve as a powerful guide in facing all of [America’s] challenges.”

And man, are we going to be facing a lot of challenges after this guy…

There is definitely something wrong with Joe Lieberman. Maybe it’s not a brain tumor- but something is definitely screwed up inside his head.

If his transition from Democratic VP candidate in 2000 to cheerleader for the Republican presidential nominee in 2008 isn’t enough proof for you, then how about this:

Joe Lieberman is now defending John Hagee.

Yes, THAT John Hagee.

The crazy preacher who believes God sent Adolf Hitler to help Jews reach the promised land and that God sent Hurricane Katrina to kill the gays.

A guy so over-the-top that even John McCain has rejected his endorsement.

Ohio officials are preparing for the possible loss of up to 6,000 jobs in Clinton County after DHL announced yesterday plans to partner with UPS for its U.S. domestic air shipments.

The Department of Development has promised to assist workers if they lose their jobs.

I think this is a good time repeat my previous advice to the ODOD:


MyOhioNow wants to build a casino in Clinton County that will bring up to 5,000 jobs to the area.

This is the same county where DHL is located and almost the same number of jobs that […]

Yesterday, Michelle Malkin had a freakout over an image of Rachael Ray wearing what appears to be a keffiyeh – the traditional middle eastern headwrap – as a scarf, as is apparently the style now. Malkin called it “hate couture”.

Unfortunately for Malkin, it’s a clever bit of clothing that is very handy. So handy, I have one (in tan; it’s very versatile when working the farm). So handy, it’s a regular bit of gear for the SAS and even – gasp – American troops.

Unfortunately, Dunkin’ Donuts rather predictably folded. If you negotiate, the terrorists wingnuts […]

Ohio 15: Kilroy up by 10

On May 29, 2008 By

I just got the first polling numbers I’ve seen for the 15th.

According to a poll commissioned by the Kilroy campaign, Kilroy has a 47% to 37% lead over Stivers.

Congrats, Mary Jo!

There is a big debate going on in Chardon over two High School seniors who want to wear their military uniforms to graduation instead of the required cap and gown.

One kid is an active duty Marine and another in an Army National Guardsman.

Both have been through basic training- but neither seems to have learned a damn thing about courtesy, tradition, obeying orders or following instructions from their leaders.

I understand they are proud of their new uniforms but it sounds like maybe they need a little more instruction in the basics of military protocol.

Hey kids- […]
