Regardless of corruption charges, of which Sen. Ted Stevens has been found quilty, USA must be the only country in the World where an 84 year old can seriously make a bid for a six year term in the Senate. The man would be 90 by the end of his term. Do Alaskans have a secret formula for eternal life?
An unscientific and absolutely impartial US presidential poll:
This kind of people have a vote on who is going to be the president of the most powerful country in the World. I would like to add something sarcastic but there is obviously no point.

I just had to ask.

John Cleese expresses an honest and accurate opinion about Sarah Palin. His punch line: “Monty Python could have written this”.

This is the Saturday Night Live version of the Biden vs. Palin debate. My favorite maverick: “Marriage should be a sacred institution between two unwilling teenagers.”

The Biden vs. Palin debate is going to take place on Thursday, early Friday in this corner of the World. Although I rarely sleep in the night, I do not think I am going to watch all of it because I just might feel sleepier than usually if I did. I think I am going to settle with the juiciest sound bites afterwords.
Here is some warm up stuff for the show.

I almost did not believe my ears while watching this clip. There was so much bullshit pouring through my loudspeaker that I had to go to the bathroom and wash my ears.
I guess most of us are familiar with the fact that Alaska is geographically close to the Far Eastern coast of Russia. Most of us also know that Alaska has a land border with Canada. However, it remains a mystery for me and many others, how quoting these facts could possibly entitle Sarah Palin to claim credentials in foreign policy.
It was just my opinon until now but it is beginning to look like a truth written allover the sky: this woman should not be in a public office and it was a HUGE mistake to put her on the ticket.
There was an election four years ago, remember?
A road strip in Lancaster California has been equipped with grooves cut into the surface in order to produce a sound which bears a resemblance to the William Tell Overture. It is one of three musical roads in the World, the other two being in Japan and South Korea. The musical road is a courtesy of Honda.
Hearing the music for a short moment as you drive by at a speed of 55 mph may be nice but local residents do not think so. They have to bear with the sound every single time somebody drives by. The music was designed to sound good in a car but what the residents hear is different.
The Lancaster musical road is now going to be closed but thanks to the Tube the experience is going to be available for us.

A quick look at Sherry Whitstine’s blog makes Sarah Palin look like a bleeding heart liberal. That puts the Wasilla blogger even further away from my values than Ms. Palin is. However, that does not change what I have always believed: I strongly disagree with you but I would go to far lengths in order to defend your right to disagree with me.
Displaying Sarah Palin exactly as a bleeding heart liberal seems to be much of a mission of Sherry Whitstine’s blog. In her so far latest post she throws the following at the Alaska governor:
Where’s the good and positive fruit Sarah? Sarah has produced nothing that resembles a good faithful conservative. She’s not a small government gal, She has shown NO high ethical standard of duty to the state or community. Sarah’s legacy is vindictiveness, obstructionist and hatred for anyone who may appear to have another answer. You are honored and praised if you are in agreement – You are demonized and minimized if you do not agree.
That I can relate to up to an amount. As far as “Sarah’s legacy” is concerned, I would call it an accurate description. As for most other content of the blog, I respectfully beg to disagree but I would defend the author’s right to make her case.
If it is true what I read in NYT that Sherry received a call from the governor’s assistant Ivy Frye four mounths ago saying: “You should be ashamed! Stop blogging. Stop blogging right now!”, then I would say that I am worried about John McCain: how could he have a judgement bad enough to pick a running mate like that?
I do assume senator McCain was aware of governor Palin’s background. Because if he was not, how could anybody trust him to make adequate decisions based on the intelligence he would have access to as a president if he is unable to make a simple background research about his own VP?
While the presidential campaigns have been extraordinary so far, I have a hunch that the show is just about to begin. I have no idea what the dirt departments of each party and candidate are going to produce during these remaining weeks. I am going to keep an eye on this entertainment although not full time. There is the small detail of casting a vote myself on 26 October on a ballot where I, unlike the US election, am eligible to vote. And I have not made up my mind yet.
By the way, I enjoyed reading Emer’s post about the American presidential election although I did not agree to 100 %. Close enough, though.
If you are in a TV studio, you may want to pay attention to what you say even if you are no longer on the air. The camera may not be pointing at you but you never know for sure if the microphone is actually turned off. MSNBC anchor Chuck Todd apparently fooled Peggy Noonan to tell what she really thinks about Sarah Palin: political bullshit!
These guys spend millions of dollars to promise what you want to hear. Yes indeed, it is time to go campaigning.

It is not official yet but the news is leaking allover the media and Internet: Barack Obama has chosen senator Joe Biden as his running mate in the presidential election. The news prompts all kinds of comments both in the traditional and less traditional media:
Edit: I guess it is official now. This image originates from the Obama web site:
