Man, I love the story about the Iraqi who almost hit George Bush with his shoes:

My God, It's Full of Cthugha

More proof that Lovecraft is a science writer, and not "science-fiction" writer. NASA just released a picture of a planet circling the star Formalhaut, the home town of everyone's favorite lender of pillars of fire, Cthugha:

I am not sure how this works with Obama's Big Hug and Backslap Policy, but it is nice to see a Dem with some balls.

Report: Emanuel accepts chief of staff job

MSNBC is reporting that Rep. Rahm Emanuel, D-Ill., has decided to accept Barack Obama's offer and become the new White House chief of staff when Obama is sworn in as president next January.

Emanuel brings quite a reputation with him. Known as "Rahmbo," the former Clinton administration official is legendary for being a no-holds-barred political operative. In a 2005 article for Rolling Stone, Joshua Green related this famous tale:

"The night after Clinton was elected, Emanuel was so angry at the president's enemies that he stood up at a celebratory dinner with colleagues from the campaign, grabbed a steak knife and began rattling off a list of betrayers, shouting "Dead! ... Dead! ... Dead!" and plunging the knife into the table after every name. "When he was done, the table looked like a lunar landscape," one campaign veteran recalls. "It was like something out of The Godfather. But that's Rahm for you."

Time for the Victory Lap and to run up the score.

Glad my Obama stuff won't join my "Draft Wesley Clark 04" and "Dean for America" Mugs.

On to Morning in a New America.

Palin Punk'd . . .

The popular Montreal comedy duo Marc-Antoine Audette and Sebastien Trudel, aka "The Masked Avengers" ( Les Justiciers Masqués ) are notorious for prank-calling heads of state and celebrities who take themselves a little too seriously. Surely none take themselves so seriously as Sarah Palin. She was pranked by the pair today when they social-hacked their way past security and convinced her she was speaking to Nicolas Sarkozy, the president of France.

Free Money! Free Money!

Well, maybe in 2012. But not this cycle.

As was pointed out to me by both alizarin and DNA, the formatting I tried to use on the post that previously filled this space was completely unintelligible and required both mentally rearranging the columns that disappeared once I posted it into LJ and reading my mind to figure out how to fill in the form.

It should not have taken a UI specialist to point out that it resembled New Egyptian. This idea first started as the form that I would use at an election party in which I would be there to fill in the pieces. But that vision of the project meant that I would be there to explain it and give instructions! A bit of a problem for an online post . . .

Thanks for being straight with me that what I had posted here made no sense and was, despite Klink's protestations, actually the antimatter version of edutainment. I did learn a valuable lesson for the Obama vs. Palin election in 2012! Format Matters and Instructions are Helpful.

Be there for Free Money 2012 and Big Prizes!*
