So there is a whole new set of words being coined associated with Mr. Obama. An Obamazon is a woman who is crazy for him. I needed a new picture for my profile here and I found this.

So until November at least it will be Ogeekbamania here.

(BTW I think he's a smart and charming fellow and hope to god he doesn't get elected. The man's grasp of economics seems hopeless; or his pandering is simplistic.)

How McCain Can Win

Colin Powell.

Yep it plays the race card.
Yep he's as old as McCain.
Yep he's tainted by working for Bush.
Yep he's a moderate.

I doubt if he'd do it.

Hump Day Roundup

Obama keeps spankin' Clinton.

He now appears to have taken the lead - what will the super delegates do?

Berkeley city council tries to come to their senses.

Oh well you can still get the best hot dogs there.

Some clowns think they should get $22 million for property next to the Hollywood sign.

Right. Six years ago they paid $1.7m but now it's worth $22m. Have they heard the real estate market is in a slump? Blackmail must be okay however.

Roger swears he's clean.

Well his head's not as big as Bonds. Well not physically.

Okay maybe a little fun. Superman is a Dick!

The best ones are the Seduction of the Innocent.

And so am I.

An Unacceptable Truth

While ethanol and other biofuels have long been touted as a means of reducing greenhouse gas levels, it turns out that they have precisely the opposite effect because of some unintended consequences.

Now here is the real kicker.

Not to mention the fact that we’re converting a cheap, nutritious food source into an expensive, inefficient energy source and thus raising the price of the former. Or, as a commenter at Tyler Cowen’s place notes, “causing many farmers to replace barley crops with corn which is leading to higher beer prices”

Nine Months To Go

Well we're nine months from electing a new president and we're down to three choices, and I'm not too pleased with any of them.

I'm not going to dwell much on the democrats but suffice to say they have at this point two candidates of questionable electability. A hard ass conniving bitch and a smart inexperienced black man with lots of platitudes but short on ways to get there.

As of today Romney is gone with the exception of a speech at the convention. Huckabee is relegated to keep saying he's still in but is now marginal. Neither would be of any help to McCain in the veep spot. There is no faction of the republicans that would vote for either democrat in spite of any misgivings they may have over McCain. The last minute support of the conservative republicans for Romney was more for the anti-McCain. The conservative are busy mouthing off that McCain needs to come to them. I saw Tom Delay being interviewed at the Conservative Political Action Conference gathering in Washington desperate to try and sound like they still counted. McCain will give them lip service but once again doesn't need to worry that their votes would go to a democrat. When hell freezes over comes to mind.

McCain can attract Reagan democrats and moderate republicans on his own. There are troubling acts in his past that bother many of them, myself included. McCain-Feingold is one of his worst and now he feels the burn. I'm troubled by laws that attempt to limit either election spending or terms. Neither should be controlled by laws that are too easily abused by the two major parties. It's the job of the voters to control the abuses of politicians - the first revolution takes place at the polls, the second by impeachment and recall. His immigration policy has stunk but he now says that has changed. We'll see. Then there is the 72 year old problem. The veep he does choose could be important.

A third party run by anyone is unlikely.

Nine more months may be more than any of us can stand.

I Voted

I could be arrested in Virginia Beach for this so if you're under 18 DO NOT look a this picture.

Yeah, so I couldn't resist.

Ron Paul and down on all props. SO THERE!
