This morning I checked BlueHampshire and was pleased to see this piece about the level of desperation in the McSame camp.
I groaned aloud last night when I heard Palin regurgitating that Bill Ayers story yet again. Despicable and empty ploy … but what I like about it is how it reflects the ongoing disarried and frantic quality of the mavericks’ campaign. There are no new ideas coming from that quarter. None. Nada. Just the rehash of the same tired shallowness. Come on Joe Six Pack – you’re smarter than that.
In fact, here’s a great piece from Salon about the dumbing down of the Republican Party. This campaign picks up on a tired GOP theme .. and one that is insulting to every constituency to which it purports to appeal.

SNL spoofed the VP debate last night with Queen Latifah as Gwen Ifill. Needless to say, they were spot-on, and Tina Fey continues to channel Palin perfectly. Keep it up folks – we’re counting on you! 😉 This hit all the right notes. And watch below, for the reason Mel Gibson un-friended Bill Maher on Facebook …
In other news, there was a great soccer game in Lewiston, ME yesterday. (Also, Bowdoin beat Middlebury and Amherst took Tufts out of the ranks of the undefeated.)

On the Women’s Professional Soccer (WPS) front, the General Draft takes place tomorrow. Here’s some information on how you can follow the draft tomorrow. There are lots of options for following it live (starting at 2PM ET) – or for viewing a recap on the Fox Soccer Channel (8PM ET). (Also on the WPS front, we’re waiting to hear from our friend ‘Ski about where our seats are for the Breakers’ inaugural season (she was slated to pick ’em yesterday down at Harvard stadium)! Thanks!
