"It's a time warp thing" hahhahaha, That's fantastic. Well, um, fantastiv in some ways but not others... I used to have this reaction to stupid things GWB said before he stole the Presidency.

I feel like the GOP is throwing out this comedic characters (old ole' boy President, crazy dying hunter VP, and older than dirt Mc-nominee) to distract from the fact that no one wants a Repub in office again.

If McCain wins this election I will never laugh again.

Great minds think alike, Mike - I put a little write-up about Jonatham Alter said to Olbermann, in my New New Media book, a few minutes after Olbermann said it...

One slight thing Alter had wrong - not just the election of 2000, but the election of 2004 was pre-YouTube effect.

I can't wait to read your book. My thesis is coming along, and I'll run it by you before too long. I think some of it will be interesting to you.
