Sunday Posts of Interest

Our blogrolls have grown by leaps and bounds in the past month since the 2008 election has started full bore. This pleases me to no end. We’re a bit weaker on the conservative time but I’m sure it will grow in due time as well.

That being said, here’s a couple posts from around the local blogsphere.

Intent Dissent, our newest blogroll member, has a piece on the three most interesting Democratic candidates as he sees them:

Small excerpt:

These are the three candidates I’m most interested in for 2008. Biden, for his foreign policy experience and straight talk (something McCain has lost in recent months). Obama, because he has the potential to repair the Presidency, restore the dignity of the United States, and like a good Democrat, listen to people who know what they’re talking about. Richardson, because he’s extremely qualified, experienced, and knows what he’s talking about.

The Right’s Field has some analysis on the McCain Facebook debacle. It’s pretty funny actually. Here’s a part:

Well, they say imitation is the highest form of flattery, so you know John McCain’s supporters must really dig how committed Barack Obama’s supporters are. The obligatory John McCain for President – One Million for McCain Facebook Group has been created.

John McCain strikes me as the guy at the party who is always trying to be cool but can never quite manage it to the end. He might say something cool, but then he follows it up with something moronic. In this case, Obama, who is the coolest candidate ever (according to the mainstream media) has a hefty Facebook page full of college age voters. McCain is desperately trying to capture the same thing.

To dream the impossible dream.
