Obama is leaving the trail, as I’m sure you’ve all read by now, to be with his seriously ill grandmother in Hawaii. His sense of proportion is admirable, and I wish him and his family well.
On a more upbeat note – my e-mail brought me this great piece from the NY Times this morning – A Pundit in the Country – all about Rachel Maddow at home. (Thanks, mld! Are you catching her show? 9PM – MSNBC!)
And from Alison, this brief but important message from our kids …
And this rather surprising plug for Obama. (Who knew The Gipper was still out there stumping!?)
Then on The Huffington Post we have Jon Stewart saying F- You to Sarah Palin after her comments about small town America being the Pro-America America. (Yikes, that’s an awful lot of America!) The video’s sound quality isn’t very good – but you’ll quickly get the gist!
As you can see, I’m not overburdened with writing ideas this morning. Enjoy the day!
