Folks up in Park Slope, Brooklyn, New York, really have a sense of humor when it comes to Governor Palin. Check out this entry from City Daily Photo blogger, Kitty, Smile, It's Happy Hour.
Meanwhile, over in Kenya, smear author Jerome Corsi gets deported. Too bad he can't be designated a "person without portfolio" and set adrift to circumvent the world looking for a home until after the elections. Still, it tickles my funny bone. Here is Kenya to Deport U.S. Author of Critical Obama Book.
As for last night's debate, I don't have a round-up because I didn't watch it. The truth is, I've already decided who I'm voting for and a debate between the candidates isn't going to change that. If you watched, though, and you want to share your thoughts on how each of the candidates performed, please feel free to leave a comment.
That said, here are a couple of columns from the Washington Post that provide some pointed perspectives. First, E.J. Dionne asked Who is John McCain? He's followed by David Ignatius, who writes The Town Hall Debate: In Praise of Complete Sentences. I like this last one especially, because after eight years of the wholesale slaughter of grammar by George Bush, Ignatius surmises that Americans are tired of fractured phrases, incomplete sentences, and witticisms as weapons. Adding a little levity to today's round-up, here is Ann Telnaes' take on the Bush Presidency in its final months. (I actually laughed at the end of this.)
Finally, a reminder: today is Volunteer for Obama Day at Tewkesbury Place. If you have a couple of hours, please visit your local Obama office and lend a hand. There are less than four weeks until the election, but it ain't over yet! Every bit of effort counts.
