Clint Eastwood sings the hits of Neil Diamond


The TV show that inspired Clint Eastwood's speech last night

The Rom-bot 4000 gets a running mate.

Debuting next week in "The New Adventures of Queen Victoria...." THE RY-BOT 4.278!


Nothing like a good gay-rights thread in GD

to build your Ignore list.

Sigh.

Mind if I hang out in here for a while?

Would you sit quietly as a leader of the KKK gave the benediction at the Democratic Convention?

No?

Then don't tell us it's "only one prayer" and to shut up and sit down again.

The Catholic leader giving the closing prayer at next week's Democratic National Convention said earlier this year that he prays daily that President Obama will work to limit marriage to unions of one man and one woman.

Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the Archbishop of New York, is to give the closing prayer at the Democrats' convention, according to a statement from the archdiocese this morning. Dolan also is delivering the closing prayer at this week's Republican National Convention in Tampa.


Mr. President, revoke his invitation.

"America's Next President"

A filmmaker friend, Chis LaBree, came to me back in the spring and said "is it just me, or is this election looking more and more like a reality show?"

And thus began the journey to "America's Next President."



"America's Next President" lampoons both our obsession with reality television and the dearth of political discourse in our modern world by letting the "voters" at home pick from among nine ridiculous candidates including a pot-legalization advocate, a fire-breathing preacher, a vulture capitalist, a man from Tennessee with three PhD's who lists his favorite hobby as "noodling," and a guy in a lobster costume. Oh, and Hitler.

Twice a week your host Mac Fleetwood joins judges Jessica Fletcher Christian Leibowitz, Drake "Pi-Dawg" Booker, and Missy-Lynn O'Hara as they put our candidates to the test. Who will win? Only the voting public knows for sure.

I had the pleasure of writing the first nine episodes of this satire cum farce, and the eventual winner actually will be picked by "voters" at the show's website at http://americas-next-president.com/

The series debuts September 17th, and I hope you enjoy it.

What a difference a (biased) pollster makes.

From electoral-vote.com, today's map with all polls factored in:



If you take Rasmussen out of the picture:



Take Rasmussen out, and Obama jumps from 297 to 347 electoral votes. Romney drops from 212 to 191.

I wonder what it would look like if you took just-as-biased "Purple Strategies" out as well.

Turn on Rachel Maddow RIGHT FUGGING NOW!

No special reason, just you should be watching her.

Does Wisconsin have a Lyndon Law?

When Johnson ran as Kennedy's VP they passed a law allowing his name to appear for two separate offices on the ballot, so he could keep his Senate seat if he lost. Lieberman took advantage of a similar law in Connecticut in 2000 (unfortunately).

Is Paul Ryan going to have to give up his House seat to run for VP?

Great minds think alike.

Nice to see that the DU staff and I were on the same wavelength this morning.
