And now, some bad Jewish Jokes . . .
These came to me over Shmini Atzeret/Simcaht Torah. They take too much explanation to be funny (although ask me in person if you don't get it.

Just how broken is the GOP?
Some of their consultants, at least, have entered levels of denial usually reserved for Democrats.

Take this article from Ad Age. You will find GOP advisers insisting that the basic tactics of negative ads are solid, but McCain is losing because he is running the wrong negative ads.

Yes, there is a strong underlying science/strategy to negative ads that makes certain kinds of negative attacks effective and difficult to counter. But it is also true that electorates adapt and change, as do opponents and media coverage.

Happily, these folks don't believe in evolution. And I find their current strategy does not boast much intelligent design. Going to be quite a challenge for the GOP to reconstruct itself, even if McCain does pull out a miracle.

Obama in tribute to Adlai Stevenson and Stevenson Hall
this picture is dark and hard to see, but it is definitely a hole in the shoe.

Whoo hoo!!! Go Stevenson Hall! Now only a beloved memory to its alumni.

Meanwhile, I have to say that I am very pleased that Obama is taking time off here at the end of the campaign to see his deathly-ill grandmother. Man has his priorities straight.
