That said, I don't support him. But it doesn't have anything to do with his military service or his dedication to his country. I disagree with his policies.
Honestly, besides being tortured, what did McCain do to excel in the military?: "It's not 'nice' to ask the question, but it's actually a pretty good question. Yes, we all know that John McCain was captured and tortured in Vietnam (McCain won't let you forget). A lot of people don't know, however, that McCain made a propaganda tape for the enemy while he was in captivity. Putting that bit of disloyalty aside, what exactly is McCain's military experience that prepares him for being commander in chief?"

A similar thing happened when John Belushi died and we were left with Jim Belushi.
And now George can have the last word.
A: I like Bill, by the way. If there were only one cherry pie in the world, and Bill Clinton owned it, I might get a piece of it. If Bush or Reagan owned it, you'd have to kill them to get a piece of pie. That's my feeling about Bill. And Bill's a good bullshitter. America likes a good bullshitter. That's one of the reasons he was re-elected. Honesty has no place in politics. It would throw everything off.

Gloucester Mayor "Kirk says Sullivan has told city officials he can't remember his source of information."
This is as bizarre as the original story. How do you go to a major magazine, tell them all about goings on at the school you run and then later forget where you got your information? This doesn't even begin to make sense.

News Hounds: Bill Richardson Lets On He’s Under VP Consideration: "In a nice change of pace for the show, a Democrat got a segment to himself for a discussion about offshore drilling. Richardson, the former Secretary of Energy in the Clinton administration, advocated drilling elsewhere other than off the coast of Florida or California along with “a bipartisan, comprehensive energy strategy” that includes increased fuel efficiency, alternative fuels, clean coal, natural gas and even “keeping the nuclear option.” You can watch the entire interview here."

>>"Bigger setbacks are required.
I’ve been told by a reliable source, that a councilor who voted for the wind farm in Ripley and has at least one on her property is now living in Kincardine at her parents home.
The stray voltage is so bad that when she goes to the farm she suffers nose bleeds and headaches."<<

From an AP Story: The Associated Press: Obama campaign: Wife never used the word 'Whitey': "The rumor that Michelle Obama railed against 'whitey' in a diatribe at Chicago's Trinity United Church of Christ has circulated on conservative Republican blogs for weeks and was repeated by radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh. The rumor included claims of a videotape of the speech that would be used to bring down Obama's candidacy this fall.
'No such tape exists,' the campaign responds on the site, http://www.fightthesmears.com. 'Michelle Obama has not spoken from the pulpit at Trinity and has not used that word.'
The site is a response to the realities of a brave new world, where information travels 24 hours a day on blogs and voters are increasingly turning to the Internet for information. It's a particular problem for Obama, a relative newcomer to national politics who is still unknown to many voters and has been the target of persistent misinformation campaigns online."

'The one thing I didn't want to happen, the last thing I wanted, was for Max to go today,' Ecclestone said. 'Up until now, I've asked him a million times to stand down at the end of November. But today he got what he wanted. He is still there and that's it.'
Van Woerkom said most of Mosley's support came from smaller clubs — which held equal sway in terms of voting power to the national federations — because of the money they received after FIA last year gave Formula One team McLaren a $100-million fine for possessing sensitive documents belonging to rival Ferrari. The FIA and its members received $60 million of that sum."
