A couple of years ago, Syd Barret died, and now another original Floyd member died earlier today from cancer. Wright was the keyboardist, and Waters pretty much kicked him out of the band after The Wall album, which subsequently caused them to break up after The Final Cut. Naturally, Wright was reluctant to rejoin when Gilmour tried to put the band back together ten years later with Momentary Lapse of Reason.

Via the Great Orange Satan:

The [Alaska] state Senate Judiciary Committee voted 3-2 today to subpoena 13 people -- including the husband of Gov. Sarah Palin -- in an investigation of whether Palin abused her power in trying to get her former brother-in-law fired.

Now here's the interesting thing about that Committee: 3 are Repubs, and 2 are Dems. The Dems voted to go forward with the subpoena, meaning one of the Repubs defected from the party line. And that Republican, folks, is Charlie Huggins who represents Wasilla.

No, not that Palin.

BONUS: Obama rickrolls McCain at the RNC.

Some lunatic conservatives are already praying that McCain wins, then promptly kicks the bucket:
So here is my three point plan:
1. Vote Constitution Party. (I vote my conscience and cannot support McCain even with Palin.)
2. Pray for Sarah Palin to win. (I am an idealist, but also a realist!)
3. Pray for John McCain's salvation and speedy death.

This one minute clip has been floating around the political blogs this morning, showing one of the few moments of rare honesty in our media. Toobin basically says that McCain's speech bombed, while Palin's speech was energetic and riveting. If someone came down from Mars, and didn't know anything about both candidates' policies or what they were saying, they would easily assume that Palin was the more powerful leader/speaker.

Ever since last week, this ticket has become all about Palin. And not only is she perfect material for soap operas, talk shows and tabloids, but technically she's not the one running for office... and that is a huge problem for this GOP ticket. While in some ways it has been obvious that Cheney was sort of running the show for the past several years, at least he didn't overpower Bush when it came to face time with the public.

Looks like the rumors this morning have been confirmed:

That was Hillary's words last night during her speech. Would it be enough to shut up the ratfucking PUMAs and three quarters of the media pundits? Probably not.

Obama went out of his way to insult Hillary by sending the text message [of selecting Biden] at 3 am…..

El oh el

* PUMA meaning "party unity my ass". Basically, people who threaten to vote for McCain because Hillary didn't get the nomination. IMHO, I smell a ratfuck.

This sort of came up in my political drinking group on Wed. night, but I forgot to mention it yesterday. Consider this: Obama has a slight lead in Michigan and Colorado, and polls from Nevada show that it could easily go either way. Romney still has ties to Michigan, and Colorado and Nevada have significant populations of Mormons. Even with his cheesy used car salesman luster and political baggage, the Romney family/Mormon loyalists might just be enough to push two or three states to McCain's favor.

Unfortunately, I thought of this after head58 closed his bets. :-/
