The Aspiring Mad Scientist Official Presidential Endorsement

My mind is now solidly made up. I'm voting for Sarah Palin for Vice President of the United States of America, and you should too.

We have to vote for John McCain to do that, and I'm now pretty much okay doing so.

MoronPundit over at doubleplusundead has a subdued, understated post regarding the VP choice, and I fully share the sentiments expressed therein.

Now I just need to figure out how to get the DVR to only record her portion of the VP debate...

Update: Since she hasn't been seen much on the national stage (unless you've been watching Kudlow and Co., Glenn Beck, and Craig Ferguson), I think it's important to include a photo montage of the GOP VP candidate. So you can recognize her when you see her. Barry in CO has included an excellent one here.

Convention blogging

Because I'm stuck in a hotel not far from DCA, with crappy wi-fi and only hotel TV channels. In the DC area, that means I have about 20 channels, and half of them are showing the DNCC.

So far:
Bill Maher is an unbelievable douche. How he's made it to his advanced age without being suckerpunched is beyond my ken.

Nancy {blink} Pelosi {blink} really {blink} blinks a lot. Maybe the surgery wasn't such a good idea, eh? Oh, and she has all the towering intellect and personal gravity of a junior high school class vice president. Know your Power? I'm pretty sure hers is a xanax/botox cocktail.

Keith Olbermann is an unbelievable douche. How he's made it to his advanced age without being suckerpunched is beyond my ken.

Chuck Schumer is wearing makeup.

Chris Matthews appears sedate. Maybe the PMSNBC backers sat him down and had a thrilling discussion about his leg. That or he's pacing himself for a live, on-air Obamorgasm later in the week. Oh, and he's an unbelievable douche. How he's... you know the rest.

Update: The flesh-colored headset mikes are freaking me out. They look like facial tumors.

Update 2: Ted Kennedy is sorry Mary Jo Kopechne couldn't be here tonight... Oh wait, no he isn't.

Update 3: Tear gas!

Image comics loses a customer

Green-skinned, proudly savage idiot endorses marxist associate of known terrorists for highest office. I didn't buy the title before, but I won't in the future, nor anything else Image puts out. Between this and Marvel's unbelievably stupid Civil War storyline, I'm not buying too many books these days.

Finally, a cogent thought!

It needed to be said, but the WSJ said it, so no one will listen. WSJ is just a bunch of anti-Hope, anti-Change plutocrats, after all.

Will congress ever get hit with the "corporations don't pay taxes, customers do" cluebat hard enough to fix this? I say lower the corporate tax rate so far that Halliburton moves back home. Hell, slash it to 5% under the lowest competitor. We'd steal corporate headquarters (and revenue) from everywhere on the globe, and jobs, revenue, and other goodies will come with them, and already-domestic businesses would boom.

Proof that even police states can't prevent crime

Beijing Olympics have their first casualties (one dead, one seriously injured). In any reasonable place, these people could have been armed and fought back. This didn't have to happen.

Hell? Probably a bit brisk right now.

Because I agree with George McGovern. Secret ballots matter, especially when unionization holds the implied threat of taking away your job if you won't join.

Best part of the Paris Hilton Energy Plan?

Hearing Obamatards claim simultaneously that (a) it's low for the republicans still protesting in the House to bring it up for debate and (b) that it's identical to Obama's plan (which is why it's awesome, of course).

That or CNN's ticker blog is run by a bad leftist blog-comment parody generator.

P.S. For the record, McCain's spokesman was being truthful when he said Paris's plan matched John's.  The Obamatards here are lying sacks, or delusional.  If they are real, of course.  I'm hopeful for the parody generator.

Barack Obama? No longer the biggest celebrity running

The Paris Plan
Writing in Paris? Hot. If she made Christopher Walken her veep, she'd have my vote for sure.

Best upside of McCain attending the sturgis rally?

Helmet Decals

I might have to get one. I promised myself an Autobot symbol first, though, so Johnny's gonna have to hope I find one.

Let me know if you know anywhere I can get one of these as a decal:

A good use of Ben Franklin's truism

The temptress of socialism is constantly luring us with the offer: "give up a little of your freedom and I will give you a little more security." As the experience of this century has demonstrated, the bargain is tempting but never pays off. We end up losing both our freedom and our security.

Mark J. Perry, 1995

Freedom is freedom, whether it's your wallet, your voice, or your body.
