HILLARY-LITE! Half the credentials as Clinton, but with that fresh Republican Taste!

Well, just 12 or so hours after Barack rode his golden chariot onto the stage in Denver comes McCain's smart bomb: Sarah Palin, 2 year Governor of Alaska has the right stuff to push out Mitt and Huckabee: A vagina!

Sorry Mitt, too late to get one in time for November.

While this move is clearly brilliant and will give some life to the Senator's run at President, I wonder if disenfranchised Clinton supporters will take the bait. Are they so desperate to see a woman in the White House that they will pick McCain over Obama, just to make sure that glass ceiling with 18 million cracks finally gets broken? McCain hopes so.

Wikipedia's short summary includes: "Palin is considered to have similar policy positions to George Bush and John McCain in most respects."

Her NRA membership, anti-abortion position, and blue collar background will certainly help enthrall the midwest housewives. Oh, and her oldest son is in the Army and being deployed to Iraq. Perfectly perfect!

Bait's on the hook ladies... wanna bite?

BTW: While some pundits are saying how shocked they are by this out-of-left-field choice, it's been an option for awhile. See the DANIEL FINKELSTEIN article from TimesOnline putting Palin on the short list way back in May.

John Edwards wants to be Bill Clinton when he grows up.

Looks like some of the moolah from those $400 hair cuts have been going to pay for baby food. He hasn't fessed up yet to the child, but John Edwards did confirm he was not only involved in an affair (I don't care) but publicly admitted to hiding it (I do care).

Look John, be morally vacant on your own time. Don't cheat on your cancer ridden wife while teaching us about the moral highground of your "Two Americas". It comes off as um... like your an a-hole.

The truly sad thing is that the deep cuts in investigative journalism meant that the National Inquirer needed to break the story.

I think it's time for me to get out of the the blog business. I'm losing my desire to report on these pricks.

NOTE TO OBAMA: If you have anything to spill, you'd better spill it, so we can elect the crusty but highly researched "other guy".

Jail bars are just a series of tubes: SEN. TED STEVENS INDICTED

Sen. Ted Stevens pleaded not guilty Thursday to seven felony counts of filing false information.

Stevens, the longest-serving Republican in Senate history, has been accused of not disclosing more than $250,000 in gifts and services he allegedly received from VECO, an Alaska oil services firm.

Stevens has not been charged with the more serious crime of bribery because prosecutors do not have evidence of a quid pro quo. Some legal experts say the case may be tough to prosecute because prosecutors will have to show beyond a reasonable doubt that Stevens knowingly filed false financial disclosure forms with the Senate.

Stevens said nothing to reporters before or after the arraignment. When the proceedings were over, he and his legal team slipped out a side door and into two black Cadillacs that were waiting for them.

U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan set a trial date of Sept. 24. The early date came at the request of Stevens' attorney, Brendan Sullivan, who said that his client "would like to clear his name before his election."

Stevens, 84, was released on his own recognizance.

QUICK! TOSS THE PRICK IN JAIL BEFORE BUSH PARDONS HIM. I can't think of a better end for his career.
