Welcome to the Obama years. The Clinton years are past as prologue when it comes to the right wing blogosphere. There was a thread on Volokh about how Obama's first job after graduating from Columbia—or did he? There's no graduation photo of him! (No, really.)—was at a place called Business International, which I gather was founded by a former member of SDS. You know, the original organization that eschewed violence so the radicals formed the Weathermen. So, obviously Obama is some kind of sleeper agent whose every step had been part of a long-term Weathermen plot to destroy America. Now, Obama still hasn't proven conclusively that he didn't murder Vince Foster or crash that plane that killed Ron Brown …

That's the only thing I am not looking forward to if (hopefully) Obama wins...the right-wing talk show hosts, the whack jobs, my friend Brandon (who is gay and worships Sarah palin -- I told him that would be like me worshipping Pat Buchanan)...all of these people are going to be insufferable.
Got a Rake? Sure!

It's the rabble and their rousers, man. We're in for some hell.

I was looking for that a few years ago, but couldn't find it. I guess it's been released now. I'll put it on my netflix.

Why not bring this back one more time. Hopefully, this is the last day it's relevant

She might run in 2012 on the Rabble Party ticket. She's certainly popular with my relatives in Maine.

My thing was at an old folks home, and I got there just a few minutes after 7, there was about 12 people in line. When I drove to work shortly after, I passed 2 polling stations, one at a barber shop and one at a park, and each had a line of close to a hundred. Chumps.
