Todd Palin shows up in a GOP mailer sent to rural Maine...making Al Diamon's October 22 column even more relevant.
Jeff Inglis adds:
While the flier suggests that the next
president will have control over whether snowmobiling is allowed in
national parks, it's certainly difficult to argue that snowmobile
access is the most important decision the next president will make.
Portland Phoenix managing editor Jeff Inglis will be on National Public Radio's Talk of the Nation program this afternoon from 2:40 to 3 pm, talking about the importance of voting and taking calls from listeners.
Inspired by a piece I wrote about "RickeyPAC" (see "Who's Your Rickey?", October 17), and based on the effort of a group of friends of mine to convince another friend to vote, NPR is including our effort in their coverage of the run-up to the presidential election.
Republican vice-presidential nominee has blamed the Alaska state troopers on her gubernatorial protection detail for her family's continued persecution of her ex-brother-in-law, Alaska state trooper Mike Wooten, which has turned into "Troopergate." She did so last week, in a segment of an interview with a reporter from WMUR, the ABC affiliate in Manchester, New Hampshire.
It's been done before by others, but nowhere yet (that I can find) for tonight's debate. So here you go - employing the efforts of Wordle on the debate transcript (using CNN's near-real-time one)

Yes, it's true - the very show in which WCSH 6 denied the existence of global warming and allowed a man to claim that Earth's gravity has cycles that affect the climate also included an interview by Rob Caldwell with Senator John McCain.

The McCain campaign can hardly say they didn't ask for it, by selecting someone who two years ago was the mayor of a town smaller than Cape Elizabeth - and who couldn't vote on town council business unless there was a tie. But it's actually kind of surprising how much material there is now becoming available on Alaska governor Sarah Palin.
