Not-So-Great Birthday Present for Uncle Ted

Today is Ted Stevens’ 85th birthday. I wonder if the old windbag has enough hot air in him to blow out all those candles.

I already know he’s not getting what he wants for his birthday.


See ya, Ted.

Hey, maybe now that he’s been convicted AND has lost his seat, they’ll finally remove his name from the Anchorage International Airport.

State of Alaska Division of Elections Results page

Earlier today, the lead was 3 votes. That was me, my husband, and my best friend. Every vote counts.

Every vote counts. Absolutely amazing.

By the way, this is blog post 100. Neat.

Faux News Clips about Palin

She didn’t know Africa is a continent? Wow.

A New World

We end the night at the beautiful beginning of a new era, a new world.


Tomorrow will be the first day in this new, much anticipated world. Hope and reason have triumphed, greatly, over negative campaigning, bad decisions, pure idiocracy, and the relinquishment of responsibility by so many right-wing voters who stated that God will decide the direction our nation will go.

God has cast His vote, and apparently He is a DEMOCRAT. So take that. If you happen to be one of those right-wing conservative individuals who, facing imminent and absolute failure of the Republican candidate, left it up to some abstract deity — well, don’t tell me. I don’t want to be disappointed in you. Voting is a serious act, and I feel the duty of every eligible citizen. Don’t trivialize our elections. Keep your God out of my government. Get your ass to the voting booth.

I can’t begin to explain the excitement I feel, knowing that my young son of mixed heritage can enter childhood, adolescence, and finally adulthood truly knowing that he can grow up to be whatever he wants to be, including President of the United States. We have broken the final racial barrier. We have shattered it.

We have shattered it. We have shattered the final racial barrier. We are creating a new world, a better world, for our children to inherit.

The rest of the world may finally look upon our nation without disdain, disappointment, or heavy-handed sarcasm. The people have spoken, and all raise our voices to say YES WE CAN.

We just did.


Exorcism? Really? Yes, Elect Her.

By the way, I hope my sarcasm is tangible.

Barack Roll

I freakin’ love Obama.

Republican National Convention

Ugh. It’s like a train wreck — you can’t help but look.

Tonight I shouldn’t have looked. Or listened, rather, since I was streaming it from NPR.org. Joe Lieberman was talking. He kept calling himself a democrat. The asshole is just bitter he didn’t make it into the white house.

Seriously, it was the most infuriating thing to listen to, yet I couldn’t turn it off.

Tomorrow should be a real show-stopper. Sarah Palin is talking.

I may do what a friend is doing and make popcorn. It’s going to be a real doozy.

In case you missed it…

…watch it NOW.
