Andrew Sullivan is still ripping on Sarah Palin:
“This deluded and delusional woman still doesn’t understand what happened to her; still has no self-awareness; and has never been forced to accept her obvious limitations. She cannot keep even the most trivial story straight; she repeats untruths with a ferocity and calm that is reserved only to the clinically unhinged; she has the educational level of a high school drop-out; and regards ignorance as some kind of achievement. It is excruciating to watch her – but more excruciating to watch those who feel obliged to defend her.”

I think he’s absolutely spot on. I kinda like the woman, but she lost the election. So enough with her already. She should go back to Alaska and study some basic history and current affairs.
The major highlight of election night was (sorry, not Obama’s victory) CNN’s Anderson Cooper talking with Black Eyed Peas’ singer Will.i.am via Hologram. It was hilarious and awesome. I laughed out loud, literally, until the thing was over. Anderson Cooper (along with Wolf Blitzer and CNN) has got to be one of the vainest TV personalities of this age!

On a serious note though, Obama’s victory was truly a great moment in history. I am glad to have witnessed it, and it truly was a happy ending to this long, seemingly neverending, reality show of a presidential campaign season.

One of my heroes, original funny man of Monty Python fame, John Cleese, was on Keith’s show on MSNBC tonight. It was a total laugh-fest. Keith’s sarcasm can be funny, but Cleese took it to a whole new level, and I laughed out loud, literally, for the entire segment he was on.
After watching Friday night’s debate and assimilating the verdicts of various analysts and pundits, I think it’s fair to say the debate was a draw, or a very slight Obama win. John McCain performed better than expected, and Obama proved, once again, that he is a very capable and knowledgeable person who can be trusted as President.
Obama landed some good punches, including a triple rendering of “You were wrong,” referring to John McCain’s Iraq war judgement. Obama also hit McCain, after McCain critisized Obama for openly endorsing an attack on Al-Queda forces in Pakistan, by dismissing McCain’s foreign policy credibility, especially after “singing songs about bombing Iran.”
McCain also scored some by trying to paint Obama as inexperienced, saying several times throughout the debate, that Obama “just does not understand.” However, he appeared dismissive and condescending toward Obama.
Next stop is the Vice-Presidential debate between Joe Biden and Sarah Palin. We will be there!
Andrew Sullivan, of The Atlantic, wrote a revealing piece today that summarized the falsehood-ridden candidacy of Republican Vice-Presidential nominee and Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. These paragraphs sum it all up:
“So for the record, let it be known that the candidate for
vice-president for the GOP is a compulsive, repetitive, demonstrable
You cannot trust a word she says. On anything.“

On Friday’s edition of “Real Time with Bill Maher,” which is one of my favourite TV shows, guests Andrew Sullivan and Will.i.am sparred with host Maher over his outspoken anti-religious views. It was an interesting segment of the show, and I was impressed with Sullivan’s open stance on his faith, and how it differs from the term “religion,” which Maher brands as the cause of all the problems in the world today.

I haven’t had the chance to blog for a bit now.
First, this whole Sarah Palin thing. While she’s very good looking, charismatic, and likeable; I’m convinced beyond any doubt that she is grossly unqualified to be anywhere near the White House.
John McCain, 73 years old, desperately picked her to win himself an election. It shows that he doesn’t care about the leadership of his country, in the event that he becomes incapacitated in office, especially with his health conditions. He has whored himself out on this one. Yes, whored.
“But I stand before you tonight because all across America something is stirring. What the nay-sayers don’t understand is that this election has never been about me… It’s been about you.”
– Barack Obama, as he accepted the Democratic Party nomination tonight, on the anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr’s “I have a dream” speech.
Jerome Corsi (author of the infamous Swift Boat campaign against John Kerry in the 2004) has come out with yet another series of falsehood-ridden attacks against a rival presidential candidate.
His latest novel, The Obama Nation, is already a New York Times best-seller, and has managed to stir up controversy about Corsi’s motives, and indeed, his credibility.
The liberal watchdog, Media Matters, has compiled a list of refutations to various claims Corsi makes in his book. Corsi tries to falsely depict Obama as a muslim, a drug-addict, and a radical left-wing black ideologist.
