I M 4 BORING

1. For reasons not worth exploring, I was listening to a local right-wing talk radio guy this morning, and he was complaining about the 'identity politics' of (non-white) immigrants. How, in other words, they identify as something else first and Americans second -- African-Americans, Nuyoricans, etc. He claimed that 'real Americans' never do this. I immediately dispatched a boy with a message bearing this news to the Boston Irish and the Pennsylvania Dutch.

2. So, McCain has picked Sarah Pander Palin as his vice-presidential sacrifice candidate. Good for her! She's been governor of the second-smallest state of the union for less than two years, which should give her that vital foreign policy experience he's always saying is so important. We're pretty much on the verge of determining whether my theory is true that the Democrats could run JFK for office and the G.O.P. could run a shoe against him, and the Democrats would still lose.

We could, couldn't we? It's a gift.

It's like the GOP is taunting the Dems now.

"Hey! Look who we picked for VP! And we'll still kick your ass. IN YOUR FACE!"

Thank you for reminding me; I need to take out that McCain INTRADE contract before the option spikes.

I like her - but only as governor of a weird state I'm never likely to visit where they can afford to have libertarian porkbuster pinups in charge. Still, she'll do for arm candy next time Cindy sprains her wrist opening a can of caviar.

Question: given how they're supposed to be the ones who analyze double standards and right wing tricks and generalizations, don't you think this response is kind of chumming the waters for right wing attacks about lefty hypocrisy?

Oh man, the Democrats are doomed. Just picture the debates. Biden could sprout angel wings and fly around the room, and America will still just be in awe of that purty lady governor.
