does anyone need a speech writer?

The writers from the Colbert Report are offering, seeing as they do not have a job right now.

saturday crumbs

I don't know of many people who need bodyguards to protect them from Christian extremists.

Via Hot Air by way of LGF.

And I am a big fan of Laura Ingram by the way. She should get her own tv show.
Want to feel uncomfortable? Check out the five worst online dating videos. As a single woman, I almost can't watch. Well, at least they are kind of famous now. Money quote: "No one’s saying that some people don’t deserve love. But for some people you just get the feeling that given the opportunity they might squeeze love a little too tight and kill it."
The NYT endorses John McCain just as the Senator from my home state hires Juan Hernandez, an open-borders advocate. A few comments on statements from the NYT editorial:
We have shuddered at Mr. McCain’s occasional, tactical pander to the right because he has demonstrated that he has the character to stand on principle.
So the fact that someone stands on the ideals of the right means they have no principles? I guess only when they go against what the NYT editors think is the truth.
He was an early advocate for battling global warming and risked his presidential bid to uphold fundamental American values in the immigration debate.
Don't get me started on global warming (hey - I recycle and have a programmable thermostat), but when did we all decide on what we believed about the immigration debate? Amnesty did not work in 1986 and it will be even worse now. If we let anyone into the United States, then how can we prevent criminals or terrorists from crossing the border? Michelle Malkin follows the Hernandez story and makes my point.

i'm back

Sorry if anyone assumed the worst. Just got into a new job, slightly bored with surfing for stories, and grad school has been kicking my butt. I apologize. I hope everyone didn't leave me permanently. My mother complained also. I think she missed having some connection to me when I fail to call frequently (*zing*).

Here's what's been happening in my world recently:
Now I give student check rides, no longer just your run-of-the-mill instructor.
Had to deal with a tornado not too far away.
Yes, that's a school bus on the roof, and that was not the hardest hit area.

I guess that's it for now. Stay tuned for more.
