Well, now that Biden is Obama’s VP pick, I will make only one, short comment:
Biden, Spector, Kennedy and Anita Hill–and now with Obama, the same crap still being dished out, this time to Hillary Clinton. It feels like a double-punch…
Here’s the latest on what’s going on with the Rezko sentencing:
According to the piece, ” other defendants convicted of similar crimes have been sentenced to numerous years in prison”
Should make interesting headlines, if the media decide to do their job…
A great post up at NO QUARTER…ACORN – CSI – OBAMA. Someone else noticed!
The writer discusses how some of the “mainstream” press is beginning to take a look, notably the NY Tmes and the PIttsburgh Tribune-Review.
My own series on the recent news about ACORN and the League of Youth Voters here in NM can be found here. The latter group has had its status changed and is now considered a PAC, which means under the law it must reveal all donors. There’s going to be a lawsuit, but at least Attorney General Gary King is bringing some scrutiny to the unaccounted for money coming into the state’s politics.
Texas Hill Country had a good post on Wes Clark titled Wesley Clark Un-Uninvited To The Convention, Or Is Showing Up Anyway
Here’s a snippet:
Well today in a live online interview through the Washington Times site, Wesley Clark was asked if he was really not going to be at the Convention.
In response, Gen. Clark said that the will be overseas “on business” having “meetings” that he “couldn’t reschedule” but would be at the Convention Thursday night….
the Obama campaign woke the hell up and realized what we all did… How friggin moronic could Obama be to NOT invite the most prominent 4 Star General that is also a DEMOCRAT that would give Obama some BADLY NEEDED FOREIGN POLICY CRED
Wes Clark is going to show up anyway.
Apparently, Clark doesn’t like it under the Obama bus!
A few weeks ago I wrote a post about “Brainwave Analysis” and how it is already being used by CBS to help figure out, Welcome to “Brainwave Analysis”–Where Brainwaves are “Taken, Analyzed, Cleaned-up, Processed” and the Metrics are “Extracted” (Coming to a Future Political Campaign Near You?).
Sort of makes you feel like a robot, doesn’t it? Well, take a look at the next thing coming down the pike…an animation that looks like a real human being: “Meet Emily–the most life-like animated actress every made“.
A company named “Image Metrics” has created Emily, “an extraordinary animated woman created using a ground-breaking modelling technique that captures minute facial movements.” Be sure to check out the accompanying video. It will blow you away. Maybe one day a Presidential candidate will be fabricated by this technique, although Obama has managed to be fabricated without high-tech…
Finally, in case you haven’t had a chance to see a pic of Yoda, the 4-eared cat, you can see one here. I have to say, this is one adorable creature!
There’s touch of fall in the air here in southern NM…the morning light is different and the evenings are cooling down faster. In the garden, the eggplant are still going wild and my first-ever crop of lima beans has been spectatcular! All the rain has really made this a great garden this year! One veg that is really doing well is the pimiento pepper. I had a space to fill and picked it up at a reduced price and it is producing gorgeous sweet peppers. I think it’s doing better than the usual green bell peppers do in this climate.
