"I'm with it. I'm hip. Taka-taka-taka-taka-taka..."
I know this blog has been very Zimbabwe/Mugabe heavy this week, but it is a big story here right now and has been on my mind constantly. And I'm trying to lighten it up with photoshop skills.
So Barack and Hillary snuck out on the press last night for a cozy tete-a-tete.
Wouldn't you just love being a fly on that wall?
A tony senatorial door opens somewhere in D.C.
In silence, two people walk into a beautifully appointed living room and sit down in armchairs facing each other.
The silence lengthens. Then one of them says, "Barack, these heels are killing me. Mind if I take off my shoes?"
"No problem, go for it!"
Then they laugh. He asks her, "OK, Hillary, let's cut to the chase. I want to ask you the big question."
Defeating John McCain -- that's the bottom line this fall.
Whether you were a backer of Obama or Clinton (or Edwards, Dodd, Richardson, Biden, Gravel, Kucinich or Vilsack), the door has now clicked shut on the primary season, and we as progressives need to combine our forces to achieve victory in November.
With the stakes this high, we need (to use one of the sports metaphors pundits love) to keep our eye on the ball. Here is the resume of the Republican nominee:
Ok I listened to Senator Obama once again thinking perhaps I was too harsh and should give him another chance. What do I hear? I hear LIES! What? I must be hearing things. His grandfather was what? Oh it wasn't his grandfather it wasn't even his great grandfather, So 'who' was it? It was his UNCLE? and it was where? Oh pleaseeee...I'll let you read "his words" - I'm done trying to give this guy a shot. By the way, the Washington Post calls it a three-Pinocchio doozy
Tonight, Senator Barack Obama surpassed Hillary Clinton in the
number of pledged delegates, effectively assuring his nomination as the
Democratic nominee for President. I watched his speech from Iowa and
cheered as he spoke of his gratitude for the people who have given
their time, their money, their support of him: the grandmothers who
spent time on the phone calling folks they don't know; people who are
having trouble paying their bills who have written checks to his
campaign for $5.00; college students who have given their vacations to
Is John McCain a Pro-Choice Republican? Would you vote for him if he was?
There seems to be a lot of confusion over whether or not John McCain is pro-choice or pro-life. Why is that?
Up until a few hours ago, I would have said I thought he was pro-choice. Maybe it has something to do with Republicans For Choice supporting John McCain?
Super Tuesday has come and gone and the presidential candidates have moved into a race for delegates in the states that have yet to vote. Lots of humans have weighed in about who they think will be the best person to lead our country, but one question remains: who gets the animal vote?

Sunny and cold
We’re supposed to get a good bit of snow today, so I’m going grocery shopping early and THEN coming back to write.
What is it about sending out a draft of a novel, even when you like and trust the recipients, that just makes you want to throw up? Or am I the only one who feels this way?
And I just want to re-iterate how much I loathe writing the synopsis and outline. I understand why it’s necessary. It’s part of my job, so I will suck it up and deal. But I HATE it.
