Weekend Odds and Ends

Holy shit. They moved the fucking island. Wow. Is is next season yet? Here's some news...

Rejecting McCain's pleas for a high-profile campaign stop in Iraq, Sen. Obama insists that he does intend to visit Iraq this year, except alone. "I think that if I’m going to Iraq, then I’m there to talk to troops and talk to commanders, I’m not there to try to score political points or perform," he stated.

And McCain discusses how quiet and successful things in Iraq are... except, not so much.

Sen. Obama also reitered a pledge to look at the steps taken by President Bush upon election, stating "I would call my attorney general in and review every single executive order issued by George Bush and overturn those laws or executive decisions that I feel violate the constitution."

Meanwhile, as expected, people are spending their tax rebates on necessities, rather than extravagant items...

...and sweet, delicious spam?

And the buyout of Bear Sterns is finally complete this week.

Amnesty International confirms the obvious... human rights is just not a concern for the world right now.

More great news on the climate change front: "Global warming will likely drain more water from the Great Lakes and pose added pollution threats to the region's vulnerable ecosystem, environmental groups said in a report issued on Wednesday. Climate change could further reduce scant ice cover observed in recent winters, increasing evaporation rates and dropping water levels in the five lakes that collectively make up 20 percent of the world's surface fresh water."

Contaminated Katrina trailers continue to give people illnesses in the Gulf Coast.

Right-wing xenophobe extraordinare Michelle Malkin launches her latest crusade and takes down two of the world's most dangerous terrorist groups... Rachel Ray and Dunkin Donuts.

Finally, NY Governor Paterson tells gay couples... you are welcome here.
