Quickies

The Wilson sisters from Heart, a band I hate with a passion the same way I hate Led Zeppelin and Bon Jovi, have earned my respect. They sent a cease-and-desist letter to the GOP telling them to stop using their song Barracuda. Good for you, girlfriends!

The Republicans went on and on about Palin being from a small town, "with small town values." What nobody in the media has pointed out is that it's not really a small town. It's a suburb. There's a big damn difference.

Read this article on Salon by Bill Maher. Short, funny and true.

Lots of big cheers went up when McCain mentioned building more nuclear reactors. How many of those people do you think would allow one to be built in their town?

Has anyone noticed just how decrepit-looking Ron Silver has become since he switched from being a Democrat to a Republican? Damn, it ruins your health too, not just your soul.

Oddly, I didn't even have to scroll down to see who the author was after that first sentence.

Oh, Deni. You zany hate-machine.

I stopped trusting Ron Silver when his character on "The West Wing" started working for the RNC.

I wonder if his real-life turnaround happened around the same time. Hmm.
