Caligula For President - http://cintrawilson.com - must be read by you… Soon.
Found a campaign handout for Scott Garrett - Republican Rep from NJ - on the train - the word republican is nowhere on it.
I wonder what McCain would do with a half hour of network air? Ominous music, dark pictures of Obama, terrorists, mushroom clouds, fear.
Stealing elections is easy because in the face of improbable outcomes the media just wonders how the polls could be so wrong.
Wow the DJIA reall shot up today - almost 900 - what’s that saying again? It’s always dawnest before the dark?

Progressive taxation is moral. Complaining about it is selfish, ugly and decidedly un-Christian.
Right wing political discourse: blind repetition of talking points. Zero originality. Zero thought. Zero humor. Zero personality.
Just got around to installing MashLogic and - so far - I find it fairly interesting - usually don’t go for content/link mod plugins.
You down with o13? Let’s hear it for the real America - the original 13 colonies that fought and won freedom for the freeloaders at #49.

It’s a bit chilly on the platform today. At least I have the Arctic Monkeys and the new Brightkite IPhone app to keep me warm. - http:…
Just dipped a toothpick in the center of “social” media and it came out dry - I think it’s fully baked - all media is now social.
Could it ever be possible that my ability to repay a loan could exceed the bank’s ability to process my payment.

Planning for any emergency or crisis requires that the planner be able to ideate and chart solutions for the most pessimistic of possible outcomes. For me - given the current economic state - that…
Transported and stacked just over a half cord of good, dried firewood - ready for winter.
In starting to enjoy the weekday knowledge work - weekend manual labor dichotomy. Feels good for mind/body.

It all makes perfect sense now - John McCain gets his campaign strategy from The Penguin! - http://tinyurl.com/3lnxqs
This train is moving at a glacial pace. Like a slow beautiful stroll through NJ swampland.

Like the information passing through a wireless network the information of parallel universes flutters within you without you.
Like the information in a wireless network there is an unsees parallel dimension right beside you - we just need the device to tap it.
Interesting comment from Krugman on News Hour last night: “the market doesn’t understand what’s happening.”
It’s funny because it’s true →
I - like a lot of people - have found the tone and the undertone of the McCain campaign (or perhaps the campaign’s stoking of the “base” element of the right wing) to be both disgusting and…
Just starting to recover from weekend manual labor - man am I soft 2.0.
God help me I’m starting to like George Will. His McCain as Quixote - Palin as Panza is pure gold - perfectly captures their campaign.
McCain-Palin are fanning the flames of hate - playing on prejudice in a time of crisis - accentuating the negative for personal gain - SHAME
Missed this yesterday from Friedman - excellent piece: http://is.gd/3ILe
The Dow is dropping like a stone and the TED Spread is gaping - BUT - David Byrne and Brian Eno have made a great record.
After that “debate” one thing is clear: John McCain will NEVER win Last Comic Standing - painfully awkward.
Thinking how this financial crisis leaves us vulnerable; emotionally, physically, psychologically.
Bottom line: Obama rolls like he stayed at a Holiday Inn Express last night - McCain the airport budget motel.
And just so everybody is clear: John McCain is not my friend.
