Obama shows intensity at the CBC dinner. But can he sustain it?

Last night the President spoke at the annual awards dinner of the Congressional Black Caucus in DC. And the speech was both witty and fiery at many points. Obama is good at this kind of thing, the speech ended with a intense oratory in which he urged the audience and members of the Congressional Black Caucus to continue in the tradition of the Civil Rights Movements and "press on" through trials and tribulation.

But one can only hope that the President can sustain the fire he has lit. The speech was delivered with the vim and vigor that was reminiscent of 2008 candidate Senator Obama. That was the Obama who captured the party's imagination and hopes and won the presidency by seeming to embody the essence of change and hope. We just knew Senator Obama was a fighter who would stand up against the bullshit of the old guard Washington ways.

Rick Santorum illustrates why we cannot have a republican least for now

Ok, its clear that Santorum and the republicans hate gays but his answer here and the wording is straight out of 1943. Why do they always keep saying we're going to "take it back"? Take what back to where?  Santorum called the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell a "social experiment". That term raised the hair on the back of my neck. Since Santorum and the rest of his ilk on that stage want to turn back the clock hows about we just take back desegregation in the military and hell while we're at it lets take back women's right to vote as well. Because both those things were called social experiments too.

Sarah Palin had jungle fever?!?!



New Biography Claims Sarah Palin Had A One-Night Stand With Glen Rice In 1987 

The National Enquirer grabbed some details from the upcoming Joe McGinniss Sarah Palin book, and this chunk is too delightful not to share with you immediately. Apparently Palin had a fling with former Heat/Hornet/Laker Glen Rice while he was in college and while she was a sports reporter in Alaska, all the way back in 1987. Rice confirms it in the book.
Here's the Enquirer:
In the book, which will be published on September 20th, McGinniss claims Sarah had a steamy interracial hookup with basketball stud Glen Rice less than a year before she eloped with her husband Todd.
Sarah hooked up with the NBA great, then a 6-foot-8 junior at the University of Michigan when he was playing in a college basketball tournament in Alaska in 1987, the book says. At the time, Sarah, just out of college, was working as a sports reporter for the Anchorage TV station KTUU.
A publishing source told The ENQUIRER that McGinniss claims Sarah had a "fetish" for black men at the time and he quotes a friend as saying Sarah had "hauled (Rice's) ass down."
In the book, McGinniss quotes Rice as confirming the one-night stand.

What September 11, 2001 felt like...

I remember I was on the bus going to work, even though I had a car, parking in town was an expensive bitch. There was a woman sitting next to me talking on her cell phone. I could overhear her part of the conversation and it sounded like she was talking about a movie but I couldn't remember if I saw the trailer for it. A plane crashed into the World Trade Center? Is that a new Bruce Willis flick? Then she said "You heard they got the Pentagon, right?" At this point I knew this had to be a movie. The only way the Pentagon could be attacked is if we're at war with another country. And as far as I knew no country in their right mind would do that, not even crazy ass North Korea.

Getting to my stop in Center City in Philadelphia, I stepped off  the bus and while walking to my job, I noticed everyone had an "oh shit" look on their face. It wasn't until I got to the office that I saw everyone crowded around a couple of TVs in the place. The World Trade Center Buildings were on fire. The lady on the bus wasn't talking about a movie but suddenly I felt like I was in one. Everyone stood stock still and watched as the buildings burned and the news reporters tried to make sense of what was happening. The word terrorist kept being repeated. And it was clear that it was a terror attack. The precision, the coordination all pointed to an unconventional enemy. But it was still surreal to me. That is until I picked up the phone to call home to see if my mother was watching and there was a busy signal.
