North Texas Congressmen Against the Bailout

I just spoke with our Congressman, Sam Johnson's office. He was on his way to the floor to vote AGAINST the bailout.

Good decision, sir!

And according to WBAP news, Mike Burgess (26th, Denton) will vote against it as well.

Sarah Palin's "Unreadiness"

Several commentators have said that Sarah Palin is not ready to be the Vice President based on her interview on ABCNews with Charles Gibson.

Personally, I'm wondering how much of that is because she's bringing her own, natural positions in-line with Senator McCain's so that they can present a united front, rather than have one part of the ticket say one thing, and another part say another.

Name That Party

OK, so I can't post a link in my shared items. Oops.

Name that party is a game where you try and guess the party affiliation of someone in a news story. Here's the story. And here's the answer.

Who's NOT supporting the Sheriff?

Nobody TOO important--just fourteen law enforcement groups.

Palin for VP!

And out of nowhere comes a 44 year old half-term governor who's the mother of a soldier, a pregnant 17 year old, and a Downs Syndrome child--plus two other daughters. She also likes mooseburgers.

From what I've seen so far, I'm cautiously optimistic. She was certainly throwing the red meat out there tonight. I'm reduced to reading a transcript because I went to church. But I like what I've heard, and what I've read. Time will tell, but I don't think we're in for another Eagleton moment.

OK, it's been a while.

Sometimes life gets in the way. My wife's grandmother came || this close to passing away, and school started, and.. and.. and.... You know how it goes. Real life gets in the way of things.

A quick way to keep up with what I'm reading and finding interesting is the "Shared Items" feed. I use Google Reader to try and keep up with the news. It allows me to share items I find interesting. You can use any feed reader to keep up with this feed. I'll still post, but there will be far more activity on the shared items side of things.
