In the end, its about John McCain
… and how he is 23 years older than the state of Alaska.
For the past year-and-a-half or so, she has been governor of a state with a shade over 600,000 people — which is to say, the size of Columbus, Ohio. Is Michael B. Coleman ready to be president? Nice work, Ezra. Can we chat for a minute about how there are plenty of qualified Republican women (more Democratic, but that’s not the point today) out there. Republican women who would...

More in fashion from the democratic party
Showing that they are just as forward-thinking in their fashion as they are policies, The Obama Family broke away from yesterday’s “it” color of “Unity Blue” to a daring purple-pink. From Barack’s tie to the sash on Malia’s dress the Obama family showed America fashion houses that they are willing to combine “unity blue” with “opposition...
Boyfriend (coming home from a baseball game): So, how was the speech? Joy: Amazing. Generation-defining. Boyfriend: I dont know, I have seen some great speeches Joy: this was better.

what is your John McCain tax break?
Are you “Fiscally Conservative” but “Socially Liberal?” Maybe just a little worried about what this Obama fella is going to do with your taxes? Check out this site to see what your taxes will actually look like under both the Obama and McCain plans. Turns out if you make anything less than $250,000 a year (and if you make more than that, call me), Obama will cut your taxes...
on crossing lines
erica: I keep wanting to send [redacted] dirty emails. I think I might be ovulating. Joy: tell him to come over and do dirty things to you in your office elevators Erica: I sent him the McCain article you sent and he wrote back, what a nasty prick McCain has become. I keep wanting to write back with a pun on “nasty prick…” Joy: put your nasty prick in my Cindy McCain? erica: ew! Joy:...

election08: Senator John McCain has chosen his VP and will notify his choice on Thursday. He’s scheduled to announce it Friday morning in Ohio. It’s bound to leak on Thursday. As the McCain campaign hopes in order to step on Obama’s acceptance speech. That’s a pretty grimy move, but not unexpected. The New York Times says it’s either Romney, Pawlenty or Lieberman. Aren’t they [NY Times]...

Joe Biden wrote the Violence Against Women Act? How did I not know that? Beau Biden, way to make the entire room (including Michelle Obama and your step-mom) cry. I am falling in love with the Biden Family.
Who can we trust to keep America safe? Barack Obama!– John Kerry in his speech to the DNC
election08: “Barack Obama is ready to be President of the United States.” — Bill Clinton in his speech at the Democratic National Convention Damn straight he is. Kudos to Bill for stepping up and going above and beyond what he needed to do. I’m proud of you, Bill.

one-way ticket to crazy town
Joy: It’s a pity that Kucinich has taken so many trips to Crazy Town that now he doesn’t really get any respect. Liam: yes, and it’s even worse than the band crazy town. Joy: Oh, I don’t know. I really like them. I own all of their records. Liam: good for you, Joy, good for you Joy: yeah, and I go to all their concerts Liam: you look like that type Joy: what? I look like awesome? Liam:...
jessicacoen: CONFIRMED: Aaron Sorkin writing Facebook movie for Sony, Scott Rudin How do you “show” (rather than tell) the Zuckerberg story? Just throw a bunch of iChat windows up there on the big screen? OMG, F my life. And F the fact that I will totally see this movie. And F the fact that facebook matters as much as The West Wing and Sports Night. F, F, F.
So. Good. I almost just don’t have the words to go into how amazing she was tonight. CNN said that she was “consciously feminist.” They framed it as being a good, positive thing. Did tonight put more cracks in the glass ceiling than the combined effort of the rest of the primary season? God bless 19th Amendment Day
Things that will change if John McCain is...
All State Dinners will start at 4 p.m. The “3 a.m. call” can’t come after 8 p.m. McCain will check the mailbox when someone tells him to check his “inbox” All stimulus packages will be sent through the U.S. postal service, in cash, in a card and in $5 increments Each American will receive a call from the department of Health and Human Services asking if they’ve taken their vitamins today...
the end of days, part 2
Second day in a row where I agree with something Chris Matthews said. So if we were going to take this on a biblical scale, then we have cruised right past the earthquake and should expect locusts to decend any time now. What’s that I hear? The pitter-patter of horsemens’ hooves?

Joy: I am completely in love with Michelle Obama. Momma: Your father is too. Joy: You’re not? Momma: No, I am. I just couldn’t stay up late enough to watch the speech. Why do they have those things so late? Don’t they understand that people on the east coast have to stay up until 11 to get through it all? Joy: It was only until 8 p.m. on my coast… Momma: when you move back here, you’ll remember...
