by Cockney Robin | cross-posted at BN-Politics | Apparently two men from Georgia (USA) have recovered
the frozen 7'7, 500 pound body of a creature they believe is
Sasquatch---or rather a sasquatch (NYT; click to see photo), since they claim they saw other similar creatures in the same area. (CNN) One of the finders is a former police officer and another is an ex-corrections officer. (CNN)
They won't say where they found it so as to protect those other
creatures. I call that very wise of them---and no, I'm not being sarky
by Damozel | These should have gone up before now. It was a response to one in which various Dems praise him for his "maverick" views. In my opinion, this nails the reason that I've turned against McCain (who I used to think made a decent sort of Republican, for a Republican).
Posted by Teh Nutroots | What do you know. In an interview with a Bay area talk show host, she actually said something worthy of not of a raspberry, but a tip of the hat. The sting's in the tail.
Joe Lieberman has said things that are totally irresponsible when it
comes to Barack Obama. Here we have a leader for the future, really a
great leader for the future and one that comes along only every now and
then, and they know it so they have to undermine him. And one of their
best weapons, of course, is someone who is considered by some to be a
Democrat." (emphasis added)
She explains here why Democrats have dealt warily with Lieberman and what Senate Democrats might do about it if he carries on the way he's been doing.
I loved that site. MoJo discusses the genesis of the site with its creator, Mathew Honan (who now has a book deal).
My wife Harper and I are both avid cyclists. Harper is absolutely
consumed with cycling; it's what she talks about all the time. Just
before Super Tuesday she just went full-bore Obama. It was all she
could focus on. She was canvassing, making phone calls, spent all Super
Tuesday standing outside with Obama signs around town. So I said to
her, "Barack Obama is your new bicycle." She thought it was funny; I
thought it was funny. And then on February 13, I was going home from
the library on the bus and I started thinking how Barack Obama is kind
of like the whole country's new bicycle. I had the idea for the site
around 5 p.m., and it was live by around 9 p.m....
I think to some extent it is kind of an empty vessel.
I've had people convinced it's an anti-Obama site. I've had people
convinced it's a pro-Obama site. And I didn't intend it as either of
those things. I was just trying to comment on the fervor there is for
Obama and the excitement that he has generated in his supporters. I
think it was popular because people who didn't necessarily support
Obama found it funny. (Mother Jones)
