Still downloading all the pictures that you all sent in, and I came across these brothers:
Buehler. As soon as I saw that pose, especially the way the back legs are splayed all over the place, the first thing that came to mind was Bill the Cat. Oop Ack!
Slow Sunday morning around here. Nothing I want to write about, so I am just watching CBS Sunday morning and doing some work. I will see you all later.
– President Ronald Reagan

Fey nailed it again, I see: it appears Fey nailed it before:

OK, I suck, I can’t embed the link:
Finally got around to reading the whole Tim Dickinson article about McCain in Rolling Stone (click here to read, h/t TPM), and yowza is it something. Sure, it’s got great verbiage slamming McCain ("In one vital respect, however, the comparison is deeply unfair to the current president: George W. Bush was a much better pilot." Ouch.), and there are all sorts of salacious details about John Sidney McCain III’s sex life (Rio=Better Chance To Get Laid for McCain, apparently), but it’s the psychological profile that really sets off depth charges:
Holy shit. And I thought I was scared of him before!
But what is truly destroying about the piece is the comments from Republican Senators about John McCain’s principles and temperament:
Republican Senators Chafee, Smith, Domenici, and Cochran said this about John McCain. This should be on video, on national t.v., every day until the election.
You know, if my parents had made a habit of dropping into ice cold water, I’d be a pretty angry person too.
It’s funny ‘cause it’s true.
Yeah, well, we laugh so we won’t weep, often…

Buehler appears to be demonstrating the Cat Thermometer pose for 110 degrees:
@Tara the antisocial social worker: I shall now refer to my kitteh’s position using this chart at all times. She’s now at aprox. 64%, trending upwards.
For once I am enjoying the bobble-heads on CNN: Leslie Sanchez, Republican strategist, women & Hispanic issues consultant, saying "Lets call a spade a spade" while talking about the Obama campaign.
At least, Wolf Blitzer’s panel isn’t four old, fat, bloviating white guys. (Yeah, I can say that ’cause I are one.)
Update: Alex Castellanos, Republican strategist, says "It’s time to get out the prayer rug." Appeaser! Paller around with terrorists!
For more unambiguous good news for Obama, check out The Economist‘s latest informal poll of economists: [click here for the link]
Basically, economists who answered the poll overwhelmingly favored Obama’s economic policies. Check it out.
Dollars to doughnuts The Economist is gonna endorse Obama/Biden – after all, they’ve already (more or less) apologized for their 2000 endorsement of W. Bush and endorsed Kerry in 2004 (making the jump off the crazy train before certain other conservative institutions managed to, cough cough).
On Topic: My kitteh is now at aprox. 117 degrees, rubbing her back against my ankle. If she is not given attention soon, a retraction to 30-35 is forecasted, accompanied by sharp fings on my foot.
[edit: link fixd. Forecast correct. Ow. Ow.]
Regarding Tim Dickinson’s Rolling Stone article;
I read it a few days ago and it confirmed every fear I have of a McCain presidency but I was surprised that Dickinson missed one damning McCain story that was making the rounds a while back. It would have fit the story well.
In other news, Poland leaves the "coalition of the willing" (h/t Juan Cole).
Do widzenia! Niestety na temat bałaganu.
Especially perfunctory trash talk since I found out about it all of 15 minutes ago.
