5:54PM - That'd be the point, yes.

From an article about the latest anti-gay-marriage thrust (heh heh), the one featuring Miss California, a spokesperson for the "National Organization for Marriage" (straight marriage, that is):

"Brown also said Tuesday that the group is concerned that people of faith who oppose same-sex marriage are being cast as bigots in much the same that people who opposed racial integration were during the civil rights movements of the 1950's and 1960's."

Well, yes. That is true. Let's just think for a minute about why that might be.

Are you listening, Winter? Lean in real close, because I want to be absolutely sure that you can hear me. Ready?

Loved the HELL out of Watchmen. No small task, considering I've been building it up in my head for literally 20 years, since I first read the book. I was not disappointed in any way.

6:05PM - Inadvertant Understatement

On CNN.com's front page right now, there's an article link that reads: "Panel leans toward impeaching Blagojevich." Up top, there's a big red BREAKING NEWS!!!1! banner that says "Illinois legislative committee votes 21-0 to recommend the impeachment of Gov. Rod Blagojevich."

Yeah, I'd say that's a lean.

9:00PM - All else being equal...

Roland Burris might make a pretty good choice to fill Obama's Senate seat. All else, of course, is not equal, and the fact that he's willing to accept this appointment at this time really has to cast serious doubt on his judgment.

8:51AM - I'm the trend.

Since I turned 18, every person I've voted for for the office of Governor has later come under charges of corruption by the federal government.

9:36AM - It's not just us.

Here's a really fun (and touching) series of photos of reactions around the world last night.

1:09AM - Best Fantasy victory ever

If current polls hold up (and as I'm typing this, Indiana - Indy-fucking-ana - is finally called for Obama, and North Carolina - good Lord - should be shortly), I will have called all 50 states correctly in our election party pool.

I've said for the last eight years that I'd believe the American people weren't idiots when I saw some evidence to that effect.

Now I have.

The universe is just too damn cruel sometimes.

6:26PM - Even Nostradamus couldn't have seen this coming.

Right on cue, nameless terrorist threat that we should all be very terrified of and remember who has protected us all these years since 9/11.

Gee, wonder

7:13PM - Seriously. Seriously.

Follow-up to my last post:

It gets better.

10:02PM - Bar status: floored.

I'm not exaggerating (and I'm certainly not being sexist) when I say that Sarah Palin makes George W. Bush look like a goddamned genius.

1:00PM - Security situation

The Secret Service has nothing on these guys. God bless these brave souls.

10:45PM - Throw the bums out (but not me).

Bush lied about virtually everything. McCain, it would seem, promises not to do that; to bring much-needed change to Washington. No, he will not lie about virtually everything, he will lie about literally everything.

Not gonna lie - when Nastia Liukin was struggling to control the tears after winning the gold last night, it got a little dusty around the Rettberg house.

12:25AM - The truth is out there.

Finally: Proof that Obama is a secret Muslim masquerading as one of "us" to further some diabolical scheme that will surely blah blah blah

9:49AM - 'Merica, this sucks.

Holy smokes - Bernie Mac is dead. I always thought he was funny as hell in whatever he was doing, and his show did a wonderful job of being hilarious and charming simultaneously. Why are the comedians I enjoy dropping like flies lately?

3:34PM - Thanks

Well, I'd definitely like to thank the Cubs for this week's early birthday present.
