While on some level, I find these kind of statements encouraging...

“I want to vote for Hillary Clinton, don’t get me wrong,” said Andrew,
a former chairman of the national Democratic Party. “My commitment to
her is profound, but I would be troubled if either she or Barack Obama
actually became the nominee because superdelegates decided, opposed to
actual voters going to the polls and pulling the lever.” Link

I have to say, it's a bit insulting that some fatcat out there has the power to decide weather or not voters should decide who gets the nomination. Isn't there something fundimentally undemocratic about 700 or so people who's preference counts for tens of thousands of regular voters each?

I'm talking, of course, about the "Super-Delegates": People who have been elected to national office or party leadership and who apparently have more authority to pick the Democratic canditate than you or I. Should some guy I never voted for who was elected in Idaho have 5000% more power than I do in picking who might be my next president?

Should I keep on asking silly leading questions?

This "dilemma" wracking the Democratic party is a problem of their own making. But I suppose if your party believes people can't be trusted to spend their own money, it follows that they probably can't be trusted to choose their representatives either.

Yahoo Widges suck

I'm not sure what's going on. But I thought, hey, why not give 'em a chance again. Previously, they were buggy obnoxious memory hogging wastes of time. Now they're just buggy to the point of uselessness.

I've been trying to install them...currently I have two widgets open...but I can't get access to the "Yahoo! Widgets" application to open our time tracking tool. I try to open the yahoo application...but it's already open...apparently...but I can't seem to bring up their menu. They don't exist in the finder app I can't force quit it. So I'm left with this vauge ghost of an application that I can't quit, interact with, or fix.

Yahoo, get your shit together with this stuff. It can't be that hard.

UPDATE: it appears a faulty installation was to blame. I re-installed the software from scratch and it appears to be behaving itself. I'm not sure how I got the half-install in the first place, but I suppose this sort of thing is prone to happen when one relies on "Web Installs"

Can we have News without Reporters?

We have lost perspective on what a reporter actually is — a middleman.
On one side are news events. On the other are audiences who want to
know about them. A reporter’s job is to move “the truth” from Point A
to Point B as accurately as possible.

Brace for Impact!

Good cops.

They're out there in abundance. They deserve our respect and admiration

Digging deep...

You know Obama's opponents are desperate when the stoop to dishing up what his PASTOR says as dirt on him.
How the hell is this an issue? What kind of fucked up politics do we practice when a brilliant politition's campaign can be sunk because of what his long time pastor spouts from the parapit in a burst of anger? We have to listen to some asshole say that 9/11 was God's punishment for our tolerance of gays...but Obama is in trouble because of some shit his pastor is saying?
This is world class douchebaggery.

Obama must have some powerful people really freaked out. They're digging really deep to bury this guy.

A brilliant lambasting of the idiotic banking world

This man is a disgrace both to the country he proports to represent and the flag he cowardly hides himself behind.

He has vetoed a bill banning torture.
