The "Obama in 30 Seconds" contest has narrowed down the contest finalists so anyone interested in that can go vote.

Here's an interesting little post about Wright's NAACP speech and how he confuses some of the (linguistic) facts when trying to get an otherwise fair point across

Tainen let's us know that Obama has secured the All Important Pink Floyd Endorsement.

Bill vs. Barack

Thanks, Llama of Destiny.


Charlie Booker, God bless him, is paying attention.

When you stand at a distance and survey this level of nitpicking idiocy, taking in the full landscape of stupidity and meaningless analysis, it's hard not to conclude that 24-hour rolling news is the worst thing to befall humankind since the Manhattan Project.

Thanks Unkempt

Howard Dean is a spineless pussy who is starting to sound like stealing the election is A-OK.

Or otherwise he's a smart tactician giving an appearance of impartiality!

Thanks be to CommanderApaul.


Oooo, look, Obama's campaign is a tight ship.

Obama has two new ads out today:

Train Ride

Obama takes a train ride through PA.

Mr. Obama seemed amused by his latest mode of transportation. As he descended the escalator at 30th Street Station in Philadelphia, he said: “Let’s get on this train. This is what I’m talking about.”

The conductor, waiting to greet Mr. Obama, told him that he could sound the train’s whistle. “Can I do that, right now?” Mr. Obama asked. “Am I allowed.”

With permission granted, he raised his hand and pulled the cable. “Woo, woo!” Next stop: Paoli, Pa.

Hillary Slams MoveOn

Hillary Slams MoveOn:

At a small closed-door fundraiser after Super Tuesday, Sen. Hillary Clinton blamed what she called the "activist base" of the Democratic Party -- and in particular -- for many of her electoral defeats, saying activists had "flooded" state caucuses and "intimidated" her supporters, according to an audio recording of the event obtained by The Huffington Post.

" endorsed [Sen. Barack Obama] -- which is like a gusher of money that never seems to slow down," Clinton said to a meeting of donors. "We have been less successful in caucuses because it brings out the activist base of the Democratic Party. MoveOn didn't even want us to go into Afghanistan. I mean, that's what we're dealing with. And you know they turn out in great numbers. And they are very driven by their view of our positions, and It's primarily national security and foreign policy that drives them. I don't agree with them. They know I don't agree with them. So they flood into these caucuses and dominate them and really intimidate people who actually show up to support me."

Endorsement by Lee Hamilton

PHILADELPHIA (Reuters) - Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama Wednesday won the endorsement of Lee Hamilton, a former Indiana congressman who is a leading U.S. authority on foreign relations and national security.

The support of Hamilton, who co-chaired two blue-ribbon commissions that investigated the Sept. 11 attacks and advised President Bush on the war in Iraq, could boost the Illinois senator in his May 6 Indiana primary contest against New York Sen. Hillary Clinton.

Update from Goon Treasurer "Pillowpants"

If Obama raised 30 million in March, we're responsible for .08% of that.

Just wanted to throw that out there.
