Archaeologist says he found oldest Hebrew writing (AP)

In this photo taken on Sunday, Oct. 26, 2008, Archeologist Yossi Garfinkel displays a ceramic shard bearing Hebrew inscription at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem.  Garfinkel says the ceramic shard containing five lines of faded characters written 3,000 years ago at the time of the Old Testament's King David, was  found in the ruins of an ancient fortified town south of Jerusalem and is the oldest Hebrew inscription ever discovered, according to Garfinkel. (AP Photo/Sebastian Scheiner)AP - An Israeli archaeologist has discovered what he believes is the oldest known Hebrew inscription on a 3,000-year-old pottery shard — a find that suggests Biblical accounts of the ancient Israelite kingdom of David could have been based on written texts.

Robert Draper: McCain Campaign "Disdainful" Of Blogging, "Believes That's Not What Journalism Ought To Be"

Anxiety about access has underpinned campaign coverage this cycle, be it John McCain's recently less cozy relationship with the press, the rollout of Sarah Palin, or Barack Obama's reputed "indifference" to the press and his campaign's reliance on its own digital media operation. Last weekend, GQ correspondent Robert Draper broke through the campaign news din with a New York Times Magazine story on the McCain campaign's shifting narratives. Like his book on the presidency of George Bush, "Dead Certain," for which he had rare access to the president, Draper's story benefited from on- and off-the-record conversations with McCain's inner circle, if not the candidate himself. Draper is blogging the election this week on GQ's Web site.

Ashley Todd, McCain Attack Scammer, Reaches Deal With Police

PITTSBURGH — A volunteer for John McCain's presidential campaign agreed Thursday to enter a probation program for first-time offenders for falsely reporting that a Barack Obama supporter robbed and assaulted her and scratched a "B" on her cheek.

Ashley Todd, 20, of College Station, Texas, claimed the attack happened when a robber saw her McCain bumper sticker. Todd appeared before a city judge and waived her right to a hearing and was to be released from jail later Thursday.

Fukuyama, a founder of Neo-Cons in America ENDORSES OBAMA!!!!!!

I'm voting for Barack Obama this November for a very simple reason. It is hard to imagine a more disastrous presidency than that of George W. Bush. It was bad enough that he launched an unnecessary war and undermined the standing of the United States throughout the world in his first term. But in the waning days of his administration, he is presiding over a collapse of the American financial system and broader economy that will have consequences for years to come. As a general rule, democracies don't work well if voters do not hold political parties accountable for failure. While John McCain is trying desperately to pretend that he never had anything to do with the Republican Party, I think it would a travesty to reward the Republicans for failure on such a grand scale.

It turns out, the only thing that's actually working for the McCain campaign is the daily inciting of rage, fear and hatred among the easily-led gomers lined up outside of Sarah Palin's rallies.

TPM Election Central | Talking Points Memo | Dozens Of Call Center Workers Walk Off Job In Protest Rather Than Read McCain Script Attacking Obama

Some three dozen workers at a telemarketing call center in Indiana walked off the job rather than read an incendiary McCain campaign script attacking Barack Obama, according to two workers at the center and one of their parents.

Nina Williams, a stay-at-home mom in Lake County, Indiana, tells us that her daughter recently called her from her job at the center, upset that she had been asked to read a script attacking Obama for being "dangerously weak on crime," "coddling criminals," and for voting against "protecting children from danger."

Bush: Job Ratings


But by far the most notable result was the success of the far-right parties. Heinz-Christian Strache's Freedom Party won 18.2 percent of the vote, a gain of more than 7 percentage points. The Alliance for Austria's Future - led by Jörg Haider, the longtime head of the Freedom Party, who broke away and formed the new party in 2005 - more than doubled its result in the last vote two years ago to 9.8 percent.

http://www.iht.com/articles/2008/09/28/europe/austria.php


I would argue that these are essentially the same people.  That 25% of a modern western democratic state exists on the far right expressing views that don't fit in the 21st Century, views that can only lead to war and destruction.

Bush is now down to these nut cases and these nut cases alone.

Greenspan Should Have Stuck With the Clarinet by Froma Harrop on Creators.com - A Syndicate Of Talent

Long before he ever dreamed of becoming Federal Reserve chairman, Greenspan played the clarinet and soaked up Rand's philosophy of radical individualism and laissez-faire capitalism. Rand believed that one's own happiness is the highest value and rational self-interest a moral imperative.

Lots of young intellectuals read Rand's books and enjoyed her politically incorrect hymn to selfishness. But they moved on. Not, it would seem, Greenspan. He gave up on music as a profession, studied economics and joined Rand's Manhattan salon.

PORTLAND, Ore. -- Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Ubuntu Linux and one-time cosmonaut, delivered a rousing keynote oration to the OSCON conference here, detailing the ingredients needed for success in open source and on the Linux desktop in particular.

According to Shuttleworth, the key is to make the Linux desktop surpass Apple's desktop in terms of beauty. "The great task in front of us over the next two years is to lift the experience of the Linux desktop from something that is stable and robust and not so pretty into something that is art," Shuttleworth said. "Can we blow right past Apple in the user experience that we deliver to our end users?"

Rule 5: Beware TV hype about the race tightening. Who's going to watch 24/7 election coverage every day if they think the election is over? It's in the interest of TV networks to keep the contest alive. So you'll see partisan talking heads — and a few nonpartisan pundits — talking about the race getting closer. It always happens, whether it's true or not. Remember the October surges of Michael Dukakis, George H.W. Bush and Kerry? TV reported them, but they never happened.

Mr. McCain may still win the election. Still, anticipating that he will fall short, the pre-postmortems have already begun, both inside and outside his campaign headquarters. And without question, the biggest one is whether he would have been in a better position today had he not chosen Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska as his running-mate.The answer, in the view of many Republicans and Democrats, is almost certainly yes.

Palin's off-script comments irk McCain aides - CNN.com

McCain sources say Palin has gone off-message several times, and they privately wonder whether the incidents were deliberate. They cited an instance in which she labeled robocalls -- recorded messages often used to attack a candidate's opponent -- "irritating" even as the campaign defended their use. Also, they pointed to her telling reporters she disagreed with the campaign's decision to pull out of Michigan.A second McCain source says she appears to be looking out for herself more than the McCain campaign."She is a diva. She takes no advice from anyone," this McCain adviser said. "She does not have any relationships of trust with any of us, her family or anyone else."Also, she is playing for her own future and sees herself as the next leader of the party. Remember: Divas trust only unto themselves, as they see themselves as the beginning and end of all wisdom."
