Please for the love of God shut the hell up!

Can someone please tell people that it's just plain not alright to bring up assassination in a casual context when talking about a Presidential candidate. Especially when that candidate is put under Secret Service protection "the earliest a candidate has ever been provided protection". It's not as if we're talking about people who have a surfeit of sanity or reason (as that last one says, "Trust your Instincts," you sure wouldn't let facts or actual thinking get in the way).

Please Hillary, stop it, drop out. You're now so desperate that you're playing in the same fields as the right-wing dipshits who send my father-in-law e-mails about how Barack Hussein Obama is a Muslim "Manchurian" candidate. You're embarrassing yourself and hurting America. Seriously: shut the hell up.

Update: Andrew Sullivan makes a good point: "I saw the apology as well - an apology to the Kennedy family, I might note, not to Senator Obama."

Keep it classy, Hill.

Their Priorities

So after various incidents have indicated that maybe we should keep an eye on our food supply, how does the Bush Administration respond?

How many days of this bullshit is left now?

Prestige of the office, so why is Bush so child-ish

Remember how one of the big things about Bush and the Republicans is that they were going to bring back respect for the office of the Presidency? There were going to be adults running things again? I know it's hard to remember that far back (considering it was all BS anyways), but really, does this kind of childish taunting indicate in any way that Republicans are adults:
The president noted that... the Giants vanquished... the Dallas Cowboys. Many Dallas fans pinned their team's surprise playoff loss not on the Giants, but on [Jessica] Simpson... Apparently, Bush bought in.

"I'm a good sport," Bush said at the South Lawn ceremony. "We're going to send Jessica Simpson to the Democrat National Convention."

The Democrat National Convention. If the intent is to show that you have contempt for your political opponents, I guess that works. For people that push that "United We Stand" front, though, using the equivalent of "nanny nanny boo boo" seems a little... disuniting.

263 days left...
