New Yorker insulted Muslim Americans

Did the New Yorker Magazine insult Muslims, or just piss off Senator Obama?

CHICAGO -- Democrat Barack Obama said Tuesday that the New Yorker magazine's satirical cover depicting him and his wife as flag-burning, fist-bumping radicals doesn't bother him but that it was an insult to Muslim Americans.

I think the latter.

If the guy wants to be President, he better get used to it.

National Popular Vote : NPV

This is a new one on me folks. Maybe I should get out more often.

What really boggles my mind is to what end is it suppose to accomplish?

Our present system offers stability which has proven to work well.
Give me another reason to abandon our Constitution.

I don't know about you, but I want my vote to count!

Don't Mess With the Electoral College

Backers of the popular vote do not seek to amend the Constitution; they know this is a nonstarter. Instead, a growing "National Popular Vote" (NPV) movement wants state legislatures to instruct their electors to vote for the winner of the greatest number of popular votes in the national election -- regardless of the ballots cast by voters in their own states.

I have to wonder what brain-trust came up with that.

They are going to photoshop us to death?

Iran missile photo 'doctored'

The image was posted on Wednesday on a website run by Iran's Revolutionary Guards and was quickly circulated by news agencies, appearing on front pages of hundreds of newspapers and websites – including this one –around the world.
