Good Old Boys Helping Each Other

What the hell is wrong with California? Or rather, her biggest names in her signature industry? No, I'm not surprised, and I suppose the Democratic candidate could be a putz (I've not followed the race at all), but still- has Der Gropinator been so good for the state?

Goodnight, moon

Gee, I guess I better lock in my fuel prices for the winter real soon, before Israel heaves a nuke or two at Iran and brings on the End Times.

Probably that won't happen until October, though. Bush wouldn't want to peak too early. Read below the fold...
