Ugh, Oh, Good Lord!!!!!!!!!!!! Make it STOP!! PLEASE!!!!

This really deserves no introduction, no explanation, no... good freakin christ, just watch this and tell me you're not afraid. Why, John McCain, WHY!!??!?!?!?!?!

Ugh, I think I'm going to be sick.

This Doesn't Happen In America! Maybe Ohio, But Not In America!

Nice little video from the Simpsons, Homer trying to register his vote(s)... with some fun results.

hat tip: Wonkette.

First the UN, now Epcot

The Onion breaks news today of Sarah Palin's next planned step to make her foreign policy credentials more robust, a lengthy fact-finding mission to Disney's Epcot Center. Check out the details here.

Hamburgers and economics

It's good to see that the economic advisors to the McCain and Obama campaigns are focusing on the important things.

Best part:

GOOLSBEE: Wait -- when they came to a deal...
... John McCain wasn't there. John McCain was out to dinner at one of the fanciest restaurants in Washington on a double date with his wife, Joe Lieberman and Joe Lieberman's wife. They were having a meal.

HOLTZ-EAKIN: What, does Obama eat at McDonald's every night or something?

GOOLSBEE: ... for a 3 a.m. phone call.

HOLTZ-EAKIN: You guys don't eat. Barack Obama hasn't eaten since the campaign started? Come on, Austan, get serious about this issue.

The bottom line is this...

GOOLSBEE: If you're having a meal where there are $35 hamburgers...

... and you get a 3 a.m. phone call, it's time to ask for a doggie bag and get back to work. That's what John McCain was not doing.
