Hefty, hefty hefty!
I'm wondering what they're planning on doing with the question about whether anyone in the applicant's family owns a gun. Or whether answers that would land a Republican on the front page of CNN will result in a wink and a shrug.
What do you think is being asked on the questionnaire? What's really important to the Obama administration?

Obama’s former campaign workers are now assisting Martin in his 25 offices across the state, Martin said. Those ground troops, he said, are more important than big-name politicians for getting voters back to the polls. Some prominent Democrats have volunteered to come down for his campaign, Martin said, without offering specifics.
Ok, so what big guns do the Republicans unleash?
Republicans haven’t been idle. The National Republican Senatorial Committee has issued a web-only fund-raising ad, which declares that incumbent Saxby Chambliss’ re-election is required, if we are to escape the “radical social agenda” of Barack Obama and other Democrats.
Former presidential candidate John McCain, scheduled to be here on Thursday, has sent out a relatively non-ideological fund-raising letter to Georgia voters, inviting them to “go on one more mission with me.”
U.S. Sen. Orrin Hatch (R-Utah), in another fund-raising letter, was less temperate: “We need every resource we can muster to ensure liberals don’t steal the election in Minnesota, and to stop the MoveOn.org’s candidate in Georgia.”
Orrin Hatch? Man, that gets me all hot and excited! And McCain is as weak in helping a fellow Senator as he was/is in defending his running mate.
Excuse me while I go stick my head in the oven.
The group, consisting of an estimated thirty people, is headed by a 45-year-old father of two, Expressen [some Swedish Newspaper] reports.
The unmarried former managing director is also moderator of a large internet animal sex forum and has a number of dogs and horses on his farm in southern Sweden.
Having infiltrated the network over a period of several months, Expressen eventually confronted the 45-year-old over his alleged mistreatment of animals.
Nice! And how did the ice chunker act when confronted?
But the man was quick to defend his relations with a bitch he bought online from a city-dwelling family who said they wanted the dog to have a better life in the countryside.
"Any of the times I did anything with her she was the one who backed into me and provoked it. She was in heat and made herself available. There were also times later when she didn't want to and then I backed out immediately," he told Expressen.
Oh, so a considerate pervert. How chivalrous.

The best part? Barack isn't even the worst name in the family:
Decontee Williams was so excited by Barack Obama's victory on Tuesday night that she started jumping up and down — and went into labor. Twelve hours later, Barack Jeilah was born at Phoenix Baptist Hospital to Williams and Prince Jeilah.Wow. Just wow.

Now if you'll excuse me, I have to go punch a hippie in the face to make myself feel better.

I'm at work listening to my African-American supervisor try to explain why his first-ever vote for a Democratic President this year wasn't identity politics.
Okay, whatever you say.
P.S. - I am aware that this post is racist.
Would America have elected Barack Obama if white Americans had not gotten accustomed to seeing (in succession) two African-American Secretaries of State? I don't think so. Before Bush, African-Americans were appointed to some good posts but not to our #1 foreign policy job. Two African Americans (one with a pretty odd first name) served as America's face to the world. That eased Obama's way. It is not Tiger Woods in whose footsteps Obama is walking — it's Rice and Powell.I guess Rice and Powell weren't just house slaves after all.
Fact is, "W" never gave any evidence of holding racist attitudes.

Exit question observation: If you don't fault Sarah Palin for McCain's loss, you're kinda like Annie Wilkes in Misery, doncha know?
You bunch of dirty birds.
1) Obama will be my President. I wish him the best in keeping America safe from attacks both at home and abroad and failure at everything else. One of the most annoying things about the past 8 years has been the Left denying Bush his presidency. I won't be that way.
2) I probably lost my chance at a job that would nearly double my salary and get me to DC last night. Blah.
3) This loss was on John McCain. I stand with Gov. Sarah Palin.
4) I eagerly await the reshaping of the Republican Party during our time in the wilderness. I hope that Palin, Bobby Jindal, Paul Ryan, Jeff Flake, etc. will have a primary role in bringing the GOP back to conservatism.
This is not a time to be depressed. If the Left has taught us anything over the past 8 years, it's that dissent is the highest form of patriotism. We have the chance to be very patriotic over the next four years.

This is getting out of hand.
Andrew Sullivan issued his endorsement today...you'll never guess who got it.
Update: In case you were wondering, Excitable Andy saw the letter from Gov. Palin's daughter. As you might expect, it's still not good enough, because it is only a letter and there is no detailed information. And yes, he knew what you were thinking. He made sure to say that it was okay when Obama just had his docter release a letter, because at least Obama had his doctor release it with a lot of time before the general election.
This is the first time I've ever delved into the Well of Crazy that is Andrew Sullivan.
I don't want to go back.

1. Obama says that he will bankrupt any new coal plants and cause energy prices to skyrocket.
2. Someone (Gov. Palin this time) calls his ass on the line for it.
3. We are informed by the Obama campaign that we are to believe them, not our lyin' ears:
The Obama campaign says that Palin took Obama’s position out of context because in the interview Obama said that “this notion of no coal, I think is an illusion.” Obama and McCain have both pushed for technology to develop cleaner burning coal. “What we have to do then is figure out how can we use coal without emitting greenhouse gases and carbon,” Obama told the Chronicle in the interview.I don't think I can handle four years of this crap.
Financial strain and an expired lease have caused the East Bay chapter of Code Pink, which has staged protests outside the Marine Corps recruiting center in Downtown Berkeley for over a year, to close its Albany office this week.They are having a Move-Out sale on all their materials. Now don't y'all trample each other like a bunch of Black Friday shoppers looking for the bargain basement prices on the misspelled signs.
