Sure enough, a quick search brought up a Diebold AccuVote-TSX Motherboard.

Just an Odd Coincidence

I'm glad some of my memory-related braincells still work, as this has been bugging me for a while. I don't know if it means anything at all, but isn't it interesting, in the wake of Joe's loss and the need to wipe Lamont off the front pages, that we get new rules about liquids and air travel, when one of the guys to make a last minute primary donation to Joe is the guy who runs the "duty free" shops that basically can't operate in airports anymore?

From Wikipedia, re The City of Ten Thousand Buddhas:

Master Hsuan Hua set up six principles that he expected for all monastics and lay practitioners to follow. These six principles were not to fight, not to be greedy, not to seek, not to be selfish, not to pursue personal advantage, and not to lie.

Paying One Half the Poor to Kill the Other Half

This makes me want to cry.

My question: Why is John Bolton sitting down with this person for an hour-long interview [DCOW]?

Because he wants to be Civil, like Ho Lieberman?

Ask Joe Lieberman

How many stones must a man hurl down
Before you bleed from your hands?
Yes, 'n how many votes must a candidate get
Before you strike up the band?
Yes, 'n how many crimes must the White House commit

Goodnight, moon

Ack, my back hurts and my neck is stiff. Too much typing!

Of course, unlike the 101st Fighting Keyboarders, I don't equate a little back pain with war wounds...

Meet The Press: David Gregory Gets Serious On Terror

Terror alerts, terror threats, terror among us, terror without us, terror around us, terror, terror, terror.

Well, that's what you'd expect from authoritarians, isn't it?

In fact, I'd nominate Chertoff for the QOTD:

"It's not like the 20th century, where you had time to get warrants."

I'd yawn, except it's hard to yawn when I'm screaming. Read below the fold...
