Al Qaeda and WMD, More on Jupiter's Global Warming, Etc.

From CNN: McCain buying Michigan, Pennsylvania airtime

"The fact that he's expanding into these states is a clear signal that both the general election has begun and fundraising has fattened his campaign accounts," Tracey said.

And, in fact, Pennsylvania and Michigan are perfect places for McCain to start his big push. Hillary won both of these states (even though Obama wasn't on the Michigan ballot--don't think that will make Michigan like him more), which have had reasonably close general elections in both 2000 and 2004. There is a real opportunity for McCain, beloved by many a Democrat, to do well in some of these swing states that have been swinging the wrong way lately.

From the Washington Post: Clinton's Grim Scenario

A woman uniformly described by her close friends as genuine, principled and sane has been reduced to citing the timing of Robert F. Kennedy's assassination as a reason to stay in the race -- an argument that is ungenuine, unprincipled and insane. She vows to keep pushing, perhaps all the way to the convention in August. What manner of disintegration is yet to come?

That doesn't sound grim. That sounds delicious. Who titled this piece for the Washington Post? Hillary Clinton = Jesse Jackson on steroids. Get used to her. She'll be running for president every 4 years. That just makes me happy.

Back to CNN: Bill Clinton says wife is victim of a ‘cover up’

“'Oh, this is so terrible: The people they want her. Oh, this is so terrible: She is winning the general election, and he is not. Oh my goodness, we have to cover this up.'"

So says Bill Clinton as he imitates the folks of the vast left wing conspiracy against Hillary. How did someone once so politically savvy become so impotent? Well, being married to Hillary doesn't help your virility, but I think Bill somehow considers this his run for a third term.

To The Hill: McCain camp claims it has money lead over Obama

While McCain is raising far less money than Obama and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.), he is also not forced to spend as much money, because he has clinched the GOP nomination.

The ugly truth is that Obama is raising money at such a clip that he hardly cares that he's still in a battle with Hillary. If Obama briefly stops spending after the last primaries in early June, he'll have a significant money lead over McCain by the end of the month.

To Breitbart: Report: Billions in defense spending unchecked

"The continual degradation of audit resources that is occurring at a time when the (Defense Department) budget is growing larger leaves the department more vulnerable to fraud, waste, and, abuse and undermines the department's mission," the report states.

This is hardly surprising. And I suspect you can't hire outside accounting firms due to security concerns. Perhaps we need a surge not just in Fallujah but also in military auditors. Do the job but don't steel the money, please.

To ABC News: Al Qaeda Supporters' Tape to Call for Use of WMDs

"Supporter videos are made by fans or supporters who may not have ever had any contact with a real terrorist," Venzke said. "These videos almost always are comprised of old video footage that is edited together to make a new video."

Al Qaeda fans. These are the people so pathetic they can't actually be Al Qaeda; they can just admire Al Qaeda from afar. I become more misanthropic every day.

CNN: Obama uses Daschle to make blue-collar pitch in new SD spot

In the 30-second spot, former Sen. Tom Daschle says that Obama “is rooted in the same values as most South Dakotans. He has an understanding of America — rural and urban alike.”

I've stared at this for about 5 minutes and can't think of anything to say. Perhaps I need to go back and rewatch the videos from Obama's church. I'm sure there are some South Dakota values in there somewhere, and I just missed them.

From FoxNews: Jupiter Grows Third Red Spot

The idea that Jupiter is undergoing global climate change was proposed in 2004 by Phil Marcus, a mechanical engineer at the University of California, Berkeley. He predicted large changes in the southern hemisphere starting around 2006 that would destabilize jet streams and spawn new storms.

More crazy people from Berkeley talking about climate change. But wait! Does this mean that extreme climate change can occur without the intervention of humans? Of course, there's no correlation between Jupiter, a gas giant, and Earth, which only has free-range gas giants (think Al Gore and Ralph Nader), but still, can anyone really think that if we weren't all living on Jupiter (don't think about it too hard) that Al Gore wouldn't be going ballistic right now? We humans have an overly high opinion of ourselves and our reach.

CNN: McCain calls for slashing U.S. nuclear arsenal

"Today, we deploy thousands of nuclear warheads. It is my hope to move as rapidly as possible to a significantly smaller force," the presumptive Republican presidential nominee said at the University of Denver.

This came from a speech laying out his "nuclear security policy." This was followed by a back and forth between McCain and an Obama spokesperson as to who had the most liberal policy. I feel so secure now.

I'll be gone for a few days as I turn my pool into a bomb shelter.
