Legacy? Don’t worry about a thing, W.

These people are so clueless.  This article in the WaPo cites Bush staffers grumbling that the boss has been “maligned” because of events like 9-11 and the financial collapse that were out of his control.  I don’t even thing the story mentions Iraq.

Powell’s Endorsement of Obama

What a great endorsement.  I read the advance stories before Meet the Press came on the air, but the real thing was much more powerful.  Powell’s comments about the grieving mother of a Muslim soldier’s grave at Arlington National Cemetery was really moving. (See the picture here that he was referring to.)

Palin=Fembot

I half expected bullets to fly from her breasts.  Always on the attack, not answering the questions, and words just flyin from her mouth without any rhyme or reason.  

The most telling moment of the debate is when she said she AGREED with Dick Cheney on the power of the VP — and I think said she try to expand the powers.  What?

Also, when Joe Biden showed the only genuine emotion in the debate — saying that he knew what it felt like to wonder if a kid would make it through the night — she completely ignored the moment.  Didn’t even acknowledge it.  I think she started talking about McCain being a maverick.

Maverick.  What, are we watching fucking Top Gun.  Let’s start calling Palin “Goose”.

Goose Palin and Maverick McCain — ridin to the danger zone.

Biden wins.

This is a great Maureen Dowd Aaron Sorkin column.
