Obama Interviewed by Jon Stewart

Now, come on, Barack, I like Sean Hannity and I would love to have a beer with you.  You’re a very cute and charming guy.  I just don’t want that “fundamental change” you’re talking about – fundamental as in right down to the Constitution.

This is a funny clip.

Well, it was a funny clip.  It has been removed from YouTube. 

But you can see it Here:

Bill Clinton Campaigns for Obama in Florida

KISSIMMEE, FLORIDA — “Look at this crowd – it’s not only big, it is highly diverse,” former President Bill Clinton told a crowd of 35,000 outside Orlando last night. “You even have a few white haired guys like me – you haven’t cut my demographic out!”

Clinton’s explanations of why Obama is qualified were interesting, to say the least.

“You know what he did?” Clinton said, heralding Obama’s reaction to the financial crisis. “First he took a little heat for not saying much. I knew what he was doing. He talked to his advisers – he talked to my economic advisers, he called Hillary. He called me. He called Warren Buffet. He called all those people, you know why? Because he knew it was complicated and before he said anything he wanted to understand.”

“If we have not learned anything we have learned that we need a president that wants to understand and who can understand,” Clinton said.

“The second thing – and this meant more to me than anything else, and I haven’t cleared this with him and he may even be mad at me for saying this so close to the election – but I know what else he said to his economic advisers – he said, ‘Tell me what the right thing to do is. What’s the right thing for America? Don’t tell me what’s popular, you tell me what’s right, I’ll figure it out and sell it.’

“That’s what a president does in a crisis,” Clinton said, “what is right for America.”

Well, this is what Jeremiah Wright, Barack’s dearly beloved pastor, had to say about Bill:  [Some say]  “Hillary is married to Bill and Bill has been good to us.  No he ain’t.  He did us just like he did Monica Lewinsky.  He was ridin’ dirty.”

Huffington Post Writer Kills Ex-lover, Self, in Boynton Beach

Victim, Jessica Kalish, 56

Killer, Anne Burger, 57

Carol Anne Burger killed her former lover by stabbing her 222 times with a Phillips-head screwdriver and then took pains to hide her crime, police in Boynton Beach, Florida, said Wednesday.  Burger later walked into the back yard and shot herself.

Anne Burger was a journalist who had found purpose recently in covering the presidential election for The Huffington Post, a left-leaning Web site.

An editor described Burger as “very excited” about her job and not depressed in “any way.”

Hanna Ingber Win, the associate editor for The Huffington Post’s “Off the Bus” election coverage, said she exchanged e-mails with Burger last week and was happy with her contributions.

“We were joking that she was on fire. She was really pumping it out,” Win said. “I would never imagine this. She was excited about the election.”

Burger began writing for The Huffington Post earlier this month as one of a few Florida correspondents. The job was unpaid, but Win said Burger quickly earned a reputation for hard work and contributing much more than was expected.

The couple had married in Massachusetts in 2005, but Kalish had met someone else.  They continued to share the house they had bought in 2000 for financial reasons.

A Robot for Obama


Well, we’ve all heard Obama supporters called Obamabots, but this takes the cake!  🙂
ObamaBot, a nearly 6-foot-tall, student-made robot, drew a crowd of followers in its wake like a marching band conductor on wheels, waving its android arms with campaign posters from side to side in response to the remote control toggling of one of its creators.

Camilo Buscaron, a UF sophomore, and Andres Vargas, a mechanical engineering graduate student, worked with Hood during their machine intelligence lab behind closed doors.

The machine is the result of two weeks of construction and $250 of their own funds. After three all-nighters during the final stages of assembly, ObamaBot could blink its eyes, move its arms and roll and rotate 360 degrees at 4 mph.
