First she was just cute

... but now I'm scared. What an idiot.

'Tis sad. And I think McCain's negative comment about Obama's $9 million planetarium projector earmark also quite uninformed. (Although I am curious as to why any projector would cost that much money.)

Still voting Republican though. ;-)

Thanks for the comment Mike. I understand voting along party lines, and think McCain is a godsend compared to Bush, but I think Palin would be worse than Bush, and really set us back in science, technology, education, foreign affairs, economics, security, and all those policy things we should be more demanding of out of our president.

That's pretty funny! I think the impersonation could have been better though.

It was $3 million, not $9 million, was co-sponsored by three Chicago area Republican congressmen, and was to replace the existing 40 year-old planetarium projecter, a Zeiss. See here.

As it happens, unlike Palin's $223 million federal dollars originally earmarked for the bridge to nowhere which was kept by Alaska and spent on other things, the earmark for the planetarium projector was not funded.

Thanks for the comment, RBH. I like hearing from you.

Holy Moses, Tom, you make it sound like we're electing a god. And here I didn't think you believed in those.

I can't speak competently about all the areas you mention, but in the realm of economics I have some expertise. Electing/unelecting a president on the basis of the economy is the modern version of sacrificing virgins to ensure a good crop. Plot quarterly GDP growth across time, color coding for the party of the president. You'll see what I mean.

p.s. I won't vote for either candidate, but I have a mild preference for Obama over McCain. And for the life of me I can't see why Palin was tapped to run.
