Update #1:   God, Clinton is such a douchebag.

“Suppose for example you’re a voter and you have candidate X and you have candidate Y,” Clinton said. “Candidate X agrees with you on everything but you don’t think that person can deliver on anything. Candidate Y disagrees with you on half the issues but you believe that on the other half, the candidate will be able to deliver.”

“This is the kind of question that I predict — and this heas nothing to do with what’s going on now — but I am just saying if you look at five, 10, 15 years from now, you may actually see this delivery issue become a serious issue in Democratic debates because it is so hard to figure out how to turn good intentions into real changes in the lives of the people we represent.”

“And this has nothing to do with what is going on now?”  Oh cripes you utter creep, didn’t we get enough of that kind of dialogue and monologue in the 90’s?  I agree with the next quote.

“I don’t think the Clintons’ feelings would be hurt” if Obama lost the 2008 election, said Republican strategist Chip Saltsman.

Update #2: This is why organized charity (1) sucks, and (2) should be watched very very carefully.


At first I thought this image was P-Shopped, but after some digging around… yes and no.  It is a double exposure and it was taken at dusk.  Kofa Mountains in Arizona.  It’s a beauty, our Milky Way.  (Source:  http://antwrp.gsfc.nasa.gov)

More at home, down-to-earth-wise, is a exoskeleton to help former Israeli paratrooper Radi Kaiof walk again.  Mechanized walker for a man paralyzed 20 some-odd years.  Pretty cool.
