Surrounded by Hope

2:06 pm - Jason G. - Politics, Technology

The Big Picture delivers again, this time with pics from the inauguration. I dub this one, Surrounded by Hope, where customers at a BestBuy stopped to watch the swearing in ceremony.

And this one is just silly…

It’s worth watching to see which way the last few Senators fall… “Under the rather curious rules of the US Senate, 41 Senators (out of 100) can block any given legislation…” (Mauldin) My money is on at least Georgia or Minnesota keeping a Republican in their Senate seats, so there will likely still be the ability to block a super-majority.

Vote Early

Even if you’re voting for the lesser of two evils, go exercise that civic responsibility… Early voting is available in many precincts.

Can I Afford It?

9:57 am - Jason G. - Humor, Politics

Stephen Colbert calls into the Suze Orman show to ask, “can I afford to buy a $700 billion dollar bailout package?”

Go to the 2 minute mark for the call…

3 losers, 1 winner

9:35 pm - Jason G. - Politics

From Mish on the debate

Careful analysis shows both Obama and McCain lost the debate. Last night I surmised that the country won because they could see how pathetic both candidates really are. Today, I change my mind on that. Most likely the country is going to think whoever they were for somehow “won” the debate. In the end, the country lost because neither of these candidates deserves to be president.
… For the first time in history, I am proclaiming a moderator to be the winner of the debate. Jim Lehrer asked very good, pointed questions that neither candidate would answer. Better yet, he forcibly kept at it, attempting to no avail to get some answers on the economy.
