What can I say about the first full week of October 2008? Interesting? Memorable? Historic? Unsettling?
Yes, yes, yes, and yes.
On the blog front, we’ve even had another of those Red Letter Days in Nukedom. And, although it can’t really compare with having a pickle named after us by The Speed Shop Deli (in the Free State of Jefferson, natch), being called a “Religious Right Wingnut” by the dailyKos is certainly a badge of honor, and one not soon forgotten.
On to more interesting moments, and a true study in contrasts: First, a post from Chris Buckley offering his endorsement of “The One.” This is a disappointment, but frankly, only because of his last name.
So Chris…You don’t like the ticket, fine. I understand. There is nothing at all wrong with observing the time honored Southern tradition of going fishing on Election Day. Instead, you have decided to make it all about you, thus prodding those of us who respect your family name to question not your sincerity, but your motives.
Next, a truly inspiring article from blogger who describes seeing Sarah Palin in person. Here is an excerpt, but you really need to read it all.
As we were all starting to get a little anxious waiting for Sarah to appear, a speaker came on stage to let us know that when Sarah did finally arrive it would be something special, that she would be making a grand entrance.
AND SHE DID!
Suddenly the video screens showed the Straight Talk Express turning into the complex. The crowd went wild. And then something happened that totally blew me away. The bus actually drove into the Roberts Centre and suddenly with dry ice clouds and a great light show Sarah stepped out of the bus and onto the stage. It was better than any rock show I have ever attended.
As the economic de-leveraging and electoral madness approach a twin crescendo of epic proportions, I leave you with these words of encouragement:
Have Faith, my friends.
