Okay, I know it's not especially productive to actually explain things to GOP diehards, but this is something we have to get straight before somebody gets hurt. According to a press release sent out by the much maligned ACORN, at least two of their offices nationwide have been vandalized and several staffers threatened following McCain's exaggerated accusations that this long-standing community-services organization was undermining democracy by registering unqualified or imaginary voters.
A couple weeks ago, our girl Erin had a flask of Bacon-infused vodka from Jake's that
Vice-presidential trivia quiz: Where did Sarah Palin eat Thanksgiving dinner in 1986?
Trivial (though unexpected) answer: Worcester!
Yes, the central-Mass city that time keeps forgetting at last has bragging rights that should put it on the map for good. That floundering bastion of journalistic excellence, the Worcester Telegram & Gazette, has uncovered the fact that longtime Palin best-bud Marie Carter once took the would-be Second Lady (then known as Sarah Heath) to her boyfriend's family home, on Oneida Avenue in the Heart of the Commonwealth, for holiday turkey and ham prepared by one Mrs.
This graffiti on the seat in front of me on this morning's commuter rail pretty much says it all:

18-year-old William Moore, a high school student in Kentucky wrote a story about zombies overtaking a high school. It's the sort of thing that likely happens in high schools across the country - our unscientific research concludes that people think zombie stories are cool.
But in Kentucky where it would seem zombie attacks are an all-too-likely occurrence, the kid's grandparents saw this and considered it a credible threat, and police concurred: Moore has been arrested and faces felony charges
Barack Obama attended the Alfred E. Smith dinner earlier this evening, and was given the opportunity to speak loosely and freely.
And he was fucking hilarious. Like, legitimately - not even by "funny for a politician" standards.
Seriously, watch the video:
McCain appears to be enjoying himself, even.
Hey guys, what's a fun and proactive way to show support for your
respective political party AND completely usurp parental rights from
your unconscious, post-natal spouse?
Well, technically, my name is "Sara."
I applaud Boston’s young conservatives.
Thanks to a gentlemanly invitation from Rich Wheeler at the Massachusetts
Federation of Young Republicans, I watched this past night’s debate with a herd
of Alex P. Keatons at The Place outside Faneuil Hall. And while I expected to
find a rowdy bunch of politically intolerant yuppies, they weren’t rowdy
Two years ago, we came up with the 20 Best Bosses in Video Game History. And we stand by it.
Although "Bark at the Moon" seems quaint compared to what they've come up with in subsequent games.
The Big Moves dance troupe has long struck me as a fantastic thing. In a world where the fairly husky actor who plays Matt Parkman on Heroes is considered to be one of the better representatives in the theatrical community of a fat person, it is immensely satisfying that there are people out there who are encouraging rather than discouraging heavy people to act, dance, and sing in front of the public.
I just noticed that my own application to re-register is sitting on my desk. Registrations must be postmarked by TODAY.
If you need an application, click here. (I wouldn't RickRoll a fellow voter, promise.)
UPDATE: Now with more video! I managed to grab a few shots of the artists hard at work on Friday night, with the Phoenix's old faithful flipcam, and one of our in-house video whizzes (hint:OTD) edited it all together. See the final footage, above.
Don't try to say the name of the show three times fast, just go see it.
Tonight’s debate between Barack
Obama and John McCain is at Hofstra University in my old Long Island
backyard. I’ve noticed that when earlier debates were held in other corners of
some questions were formulated to fit the needs and interests of the local electorate.
Since I know suburban New York
well, I decided to pen some questions that Long Islanders could relate to.
