Morally and Intellectually Slothful People

Christopher Hitchens nails it: This is what the Republican Party has done to us this year: It has placed within reach of the Oval Office a woman who is a religious fanatic and a proud, boastful ignoramus. Those who despise science and learning are not anti-elitist. They are morally and intellectually slothful people who are secretly envious of the educated […]

The Electoral College Makes Things Interesting

The Electoral College Makes Things Interesting

48 states plus Washington, D.C. are winner take all. So, you could have all of them by winning each one by one vote. That’s 49 votes. Maine and Nebraska have two and three Congressional districts, respectively. Their system is that there’s one electoral vote for each district and two more for the overall winner of the state so you’d need […]

Smear Tactics Confuzzle the Proof Readers

It all started with Sarah Palin’s first declaration that Senator Obama was “paling around with terrorists”. But wait. May he was “palling around with terrorists.” No, that doesn’t look right. Dang it. She’s gone and taken a noun and made a verb out of it and now nobody knows how to spell it. The AP says it’s “palling”. So does […]

My Election Prediction

Okay, going-out-on-a-limb time. Here’s the electoral map that I believe we’ll see on Wednesday, November 5th, 2008. Yes, I believe that Indiana and Missouri are going blue this year. It’s unbelievable but true. Uhh…I think. Bonus prediction: Senate will be 59:41 Democrats:Republicans. They may actually get their filibuster-proof 60 but I am having a hard time being that optimistic. I’m […]

Found: A Man With No Shame

Nicked from Andrew Sullivan. This is positively amazing. Some douchebag named Dan Riehl actually blogged this about Senator Obama’s visit to see his dying grandmother. She’s not expected to make it until the election in which the grandson she helped raise is chosen to be the president of the United States of America. He actually wrote this for all to […]

Campaign Integrity – It’s the Little Things

It’s not easy keeping your campaign on the good side of decent. But I have been amazed by how the Campaign for Change has gone out of their way to keep their message positive. As Matt Damon said in an interview yesterday regarding his decision not to criticize the McCain/Palin ticket, “The Obama campaign has decided to focus on the […]

Oh, By the Way…

Happy National Chemistry Week. We chemists are a crazy bunch, I tell ya. “Chemists Cause Reactions”“Polymer Chemists Do It In Chains”“Experiment With a Chemist”“If You’re Not Part of the Solution, You’re Part of the Precipitate”“Chemists do it in an excited state.”“Chemists do it periodically on the table.” Bonus chemist joke:A chemist walks into a pharmacy and asks the pharmacist, “Do […]
