Sarah Palin and Tall

John McCain picked the completely unknown Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin. Mother of five, governor of 600,000, and pro-life advocate for his Vice President. She has been governor of Alaska for two years... prior to that she was the mayor of a town of 6000. No, I'm not kidding. Stop laughing. This is serious.

Not her... just looks like here

She is an avid hunter... yeah, that went over real well with the last VP. I'm sure it can only mean good things. Are the PUMAs (Hillary Supporters who are acting like children) so goddamned stupid that they will actually vote for McCain for this? Crap. They are.

Nope... still not her.

Here's the thing that a friend pointed out: Obama picked Biden because he knew he could help him govern better. McCain picked a woman only because it could help him win. Contrary to the idiots like Cindy McCain that said she has "international experience because her state is near Alaska"*, she has no actual international experience. While Alaska is a very large state--it is the third smallest in population. Basically, the mayor of my hometown has overseen more constituents than pretty little Sarah.

Yep. That's her.

But Chris, you're probably saying, it's not all that important, is it? She's just the VP. Think about this: consider that John McCain produced 8,000 pages of medical records from 2002 on (which he would only let the press see for less than an hour) the chances of this guy making it to inauguration is pretty sketchy. Then again, the Republicans wouldn't just put up some moron just to win an election so she knows what she's doing, right? Right?!
Christ, were fucked.

Spank Bank Friday: Assume the Position

Have a great Labor Day weekend! Do someone... er, something fun!
For Michelle

My friend Michele missed out on much of the Beijing Olympics because she lives in Norway and it was not covered as obsessively as it is in the U.S. (NBC paid $500 million for the rights, you'd better believe they were going to show it non-stop). I love the Olympics. The pomp. The circumstance. The pagentry.

Here are some amazing images from the games that will stick with me. I grabbed most of them from This is Life blog. It's great and I suggest you check it out as it's always worth a visit.

Hold Onto Your Socks...

...this is hysterical.

Portrayal Of Obama As Elitist Hailed As Step Forward For African Americans

Wednesday, August 27, 2008

“No way. No how. No McCain.”

Hillary Clinton knocked it out of the ballpark last night. Her speech at the DNC Convention in Denver was brilliant and effective. While not a personal endorsement of Barak Obama, she laid out in VERY clear terms why her supporters need to vote for Obama:

“Were you in this campaign just for me? Were you in it for that young Marine and others like him? Were you in it for that mom struggling with cancer while raising her kids? Were you in it for that boy and his mom surviving on the minimum wage? Were you in it for all the people in this country who feel invisible?”

I continue to shake my head in wonder at those ‘spoiled children’ that won’t vote for Obama because he beat Hillary. Or—more aptly—will vote for McCain because he’s not Obama (who beat Hillary). I was eight when I first understood the idiocy of cutting off my nose to spite my face—yet, these people continue on that path. Thank you, Hillary for letting your supporters know that to vote for McCain is a disservice to you and all you’ve worked for:

“I haven’t spent the past 35 years in the trenches advocating for children, campaigning for universal health care, helping parents balance work and family, and fighting for women’s rights at home and around the world … to see another Republican in the White House squander the promise of our country and the hopes of our people.”


There were some nice touches, the “No way. No how. No McCain” being at the top of the list. I also thought her “Sisterhood of the travelling pantsuits” to be particularly amusing. She seemed to be in her element last night and I know that if she had been the nominee she would have made a fine president (and still can someday).
However, now it is Barak’s time. We need to get out there and vote for him to put this country on its intended path and to right the many wrongs of the last eight years.

The Daily Kos has a great list of reasons John McCain can use the above card. It keeps growing... and growing... and growing...

"Ho, Superquiz!"

Years ago--almost 25 to be exact--my friends and I would kill the long hours of work by playing Superquiz in the morning paper. It was never planned... whomever was reading the paper would come across the section and shout, "Ho, Superquiz!"

Later, I adapted this to my printed 'zine and the emailed precursor to this blog. Well, it's time to bring back the Slap & Tickle Superquiz.

As the image below suggests, "can you guess all these movies from just these letters?" Click on the image to make it bigger.

There are 46 answers... you might win a prize if you get them all right.*

The good news: there was a major power outage and work was plunged into darkness and we got to go home early.

The bad news: never got to post anything for Monday.

The great news: I found this:

McCain Served by Hilton... Laughs Ensue.

I'm sure you've heard Kathy Hilton's response to that McCain ad that used Paris' image to mock Obama. I think Joel McHale from The Soup put it best:

Comcast Not that into Phelps

Check out the screen shot from Comcast for Michael Phelps after he won his fifth gold medal of the Beijing Olympics (he has since won another). Apparently, he's not as pretty as Ryan Lochte, but you'd think they could at least put his full face on their website...
Olympic Champions Quiz

Head on over to Miss Cellania and take her US Olympians Quiz. I got 11 of 15 right. Not great, but not too bad.
Spank Bank Friday

His name is Koji Murofushi an Olympic Hammer Thrower from Japan. Normally, not into Asian guys--not racist, just a preference--but Koji (along with his amazing legs) is a definite exception (along with Yun-Fat Chow). Check out my new love below.

Bloodtype? Weird... still hot, but weird

Check out this video from the BBC on taxi, air, boat, and phone traffic around London and the UK. Amazing.

Olympic Up Close & Personal:
Alvaro Paseyro

Sport: Judo
Country: Uruguay
Hotness: Gold Medal

Alvaro Paseyro was the Uruguayan Judo contestant in the x weight class at the 2000 Olympic Games in Sydney. He may have come in fifth at the Olympics, but he’s on top of my list as a stud. He can body-slam me anytime.

From what I've read--and there's not much out there--he hurt his back and isn't "Judo-ing"* anymore. Hopefully, he's still gorgeous. Well, in my mind he is... and he has an accent!

I'll comment on the current Olympics some other time... I'd do it now, but Michael Phelps is about to knock off another Olympic record...

And if anyone knows the music in this video, I'd love to know what it is.

*What is the term for that? Wresting has wrestlers, ball games have players, what does one call someone who participates in Judo?

Spank Bank Friday

You know, in the after-glow of my Olympic Opening Ceremonies Orgasm, I've neglected to put up a proper SBF. So, for those of you who are feeling a little left out on the Obvious Eye-Candy (i.e. dudes that have amazing bodies not because their athletic, but because they are man-whores*), here's something to chew on for the weekend:

Why's he pointing that way, when he's clearly looking over here?

*Not that I would call either of these upstanding gentlemen "man-whores"... but if they are, my number is: (408) 429 -
From The Temple of Hera...

...the Olympic Flame has been lit--which we won't see until late tonight PDT--and the games have begun. As we look forward to the Olympic Games in Beijing, a final look back at some of my favorite pics from the countdown:

For Jill...

I bet you can't tell which country I'll be rooting for...

Hint: USA! USA! USA!
