Anyway, I just realized that this is the first time since Reagan-Bush 1984 that both nominees on a major party ticket haven't been lawyers. John McCain went to the U.S. Naval Academy while Sarah Palin got a journalism degree from the University of Idaho.
No offense to Gabe, of course, but that's kind of refreshing.
Update: I once again prove my Moron credentials. This is the first time a national ticket has had two non-lawyers since...ummm...2004.

At press time, the nut was still firmly attached to the base of the man’s genitals.Huh. Like most guys, I have two nuts firmly attached to the base of my genitals, but this guy is different, I guess.

These goofy "so scary that" promotionals and ads are ridiculous, but my favorite of these promotionals is for The Screaming Skull (which was featured on MST3K, you can see the corny promotional after the Gumby short, or skip to 6:00, but the Gumby bit was funneh),

McCain, who has pulled even with Barack Obama due in part to his very effective attacks on Obama's "celebrity," spent the evening collecting checks from Hollywood stars or people who once might have fit that description. Among those attending: Dean Cain (Superman); James Caan (Godfather I and II, Bottle Rocket); Jon Voight (Midnight Cowboy, Deliverance); Robert Davi (License to Kill); Lou Ferrigno (The Incredible Hulk); Adam Carolla (The Man Show); Lacy Chabert (Party of Five).
Out of the following VP candidates rumored to be on McCain's short list, which one DO YOU THINK HE WILL TAKE?
McCain I think will pick Pawlenty, and that's probably only because he knows he can't get away with putting Lieberman on there.
Out of the following VP candidates rumored to be on McCain's short list, which one WOULD YOU LIKE TO SEE HIM TAKE?
I think this is pretty obvious if you read our crapblog, most of us at doubleplusundead have been all about Palin.
Out of the following VP candidates rumored to be on McCain's short list, which one WOULD YOU LEAST LIKE TO SEE HIM TAKE?
Lieberman, not because I dislike the guy, because I do like him, but I like him as respectable and civil opposition and as a generally decent (but mostly wrong on policy) guy, but not as a VP.
Vaguely related(since we're talking Presidential candidates and their VPs, but fucking hilarious.
I would prefer that Invisible Monsters, Lullaby, or Diary: A Novel been made into movies first since...umm...those are the ones I've read. This is a good start, though, I'm sure.

If you've ever listened to Dick Morris, he always says that when he was a Clinton advisor and the GOP attacked Hillary, the Clintonistas were cool with it because the GOP wasn't making political attacks on Bill. I wonder if in part a similar philosophy is at work here.

(a) it's just a bump, which is nothing to worry about.
(b) it's cancer.
(c) a bug laid it's eggs in me while I was sleeping.
My guess is (c).
(Blame Barack Obama. I had planned to write on his VP pick, and how McCain could best react to that, but he's screwed that up for us, too.)

Oh, and judging from the results of this Google search, at least one other person noticed her appearance, too.

This is the Omaha-based band Tilly and the Wall. The fellas will probably like the percussion section.
And yes, I know it's old.
Earlier this month, a blast near a police station in northern Algeria wounded 21 people. And a suicide bomber on a motorcycle targeted a military convoy in late July, injuring 13 soldiers.
In both instances, the militant group Al Qaeda Islamic Maghreb claimed responsibility.
The same group also is accused of orchestrating a double car bomb attack in Algiers in December that struck a United Nations headquarters and Algeria's Constitutional Council building. The attack killed dozens of people, including 17 U.N. staffers.
What? Algeria wasn't involved in the war in Iraq? Well, surely large contingents of U.N. soldiers raped the innocent in Iraq! No?
AQIM seeks to destabilize countries such as Algeria, Morocco and Tunisia, which it sees as enemies of the Islamic state, authorities say.Then it must be the Moroccan and Tunisian soldiers who were especially brutal in Iraq and Afghanistan! No? You mean to tell me that this bombing didn't have anything to do with Goebush McHitlerBurton's war for oil?
