Love me and despair

I know Demetrius just meant this for a comment link, but what the heck....

Funny comment on a article:

"And now we have Bobby-Gate. Apparently, Hillary’s heart has greatly desired the death of her rival. I’m getting images of a tempted Galadriel from Tolkien’s “Lord of the Rings”: “in place of a dark Lord you would have a Queen; beautiful and treacherous as the sea!

Hillary Cheney is unhinged. She wants to take a blood-soaked White House.

And all of this because he beat her and won’t choose her as his running mate.
...couldn't resist an accompanying picture.

News and links

I've added a number of new articles to my Google shared items here. This headline in particular caught my attention.

Is Clinton acting out because Obama told her no to VP?

The words "acting out" evoke a certain image in my mind. Something like this...

And a couple of not-so-new but possibly forgotten quotes...

From October 2007
"It's clear, this election they're having is not going to count for anything," Clinton said Thursday during an interview on New Hampshire Public Radio's call-in program, "The Exchange." "But I just personally did not want to set up a situation where the Republicans are going to be campaigning between now and whenever, and then after the nomination, we have to go in and repair the damage to be ready to win Michigan in 2008."

And from February 2007...
“If the most important thing to any of you is choosing someone who did not cast that vote or has said his vote was a mistake, then there are others to choose from,” Mrs. Clinton told an audience in Dover, N.H., in a veiled reference to two rivals for the nomination, Senator Barack Obama of Illinois and former Senator John Edwards of North Carolina.

Honestly, Hil--it's like you don't think hard working Americans know how to use the internets to look this kind of stuff up.

Are you missing some matter?

Apparently some has been found.

How can you pass up a headline like this: Half of Universe's Missing Matter Found.

Surprisingly, it wasn't found behind the couch.

Except I really do plan to go in anyway. I have to. I left that box of tissue with the lotion in it on my desk...

McCain campaign seeking blogger outreach

Submitted without comment...

Wishing you could be a campaign surrogate, but don't have a national platform? Do you find blogging your own opinions tedious? Wish you could have someone tell you what to think during this political season? Well look no further than John McCain's new blog outreach!

More here.

I remember reading a couple months ago that 1627 is the real magic number, with respect to delegates...

1,627 is fifty percent plus one of the 3,253 democratically selected delegates to the Democratic nominating convention.
Barack Obama is poised to reach that milestone today.

Credit where due

Thank you for this, Hillary.

Largely absent from her swing through South Dakota and Oregon, two of the four states (plus Puerto Rico) that have yet to hold primaries, was any mention of her opponent. On Thursday, she mentioned Mr. Obama only when she defended him from Mr. Bush’s remarks that implicitly compared him to appeasers of Nazis.

The Clinton campaign began running three more television advertisements on Friday in Oregon and Kentucky, none of which criticized Mr. Obama directly. An aide said that in the coming days, Mrs. Clinton planned to focus on the economy and avoid directly criticizing Mr. Obama.

Also, this post at The Field is worth checking out.
