- Today's comic is Super-Fun-Pak Comix, featuring Percival Dunwoody vs. Hitler, and more! by Ruben Bolling:
- Sen. Still Bitter has some deep thoughts on last night's debate:
Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) was surprised with the performances of Mitt Romney and President Obama in the first presidential debate. [...]Yes, everyone's very surprised because usually, Mitt is such a dick that his not quite-as-dickish-dickishness was practically refreshing. Winning!
"Well, I was surprised at how well Mitt did. And I think it was very important, because he came across as the person he really is as opposed to how he has been portrayed by hundreds of millions of dollars of attack ads.," McCain said.
Given all the unfettered candidate talking points and potpourri of disconnected issues, you’d think someone would have uttered the word “women.” But, alas, it went unsaid. In an election cycle where women’s hearts and votes are being fiercely battled over while our rights and needs are getting hammered by Republican vote after Republican vote, you’d think we might come up once. Nope.
- Log Cabin Republicans are still on the fence about whether to endorse the guy who wants to take their rights away from them. Tough call, guys, tough call.
- Don't you just hate when this happens?
Republican Senate candidate Todd Akin on Thursday released a decade's worth of federal financial reports he has updated with nearly $130,000 in state pension income that he received, but failed to disclose, over that time.
"This was an unintentional oversight and I regret any inconvenience this may cause," the Missouri congressman wrote in a letter dated Tuesday to the chairman of the House Ethics Committee.
Women in the U.S. military have been flying warplanes for years, and recently began serving in artillery and tank units. But they're still barred from direct ground combat.
Now, for the first time in the course's 35-year history, the Marine Corps is putting the first women through its grueling Infantry Officer Course: 86 days crawling through obstacle courses, lugging heavy machine guns, navigating the woods at night. [...]
Eventually, the Marines hope to have 100 female volunteers to see how many — if any — can pass this tough test that's required of all Marine infantry officers.
- Heckuva schmuck:
The former Bush administration official who headed Hurricane Katrina disaster relief said Wednesday that President Barack Obama played “the race card” with his 2007 speech about the Bush administration’s response. [...]
“I call total BS on the President’s comments about Katrina,” Brown told POLITICO in an email. “He needs to get his facts straight and stop playing the race card with Katrina.”
Brown added, “The men and women of FEMA work tirelessly for disaster victims regardless of race, political affiliation or any other category he wants to lump people into.”
Business was brisk inside Orleans Parish magistrate court Monday afternoon as criminal defendants filled up the back rows while cops sat waiting to testify. That's when a joint fell out of attorney Jason Cantrell 's pocket and onto the floor in front of NOPD officers. [...]Good things cops were there to catch this dangerous criminal, right? It's a good time to remind ourselves just how dangerous pot is:
Sources painted a comical picture of the incident, saying a pair of cops glanced at the joint on the ground, then at each other before making arguably the easiest collar in the annals of policework.
Officers were seen chuckling as their colleagues led Cantrell out of the courtroom about 4:15 p.m. to write him up.
- Today's Kagro in the Morning (-after-the-debate) show featured an extended discussion of reactions, snap polling, and historical trends with Greg Dworkin. But it wasn't all debate, all the time. We dove into the tax-exempt status of political churches, revisited the below-the-radar problem of "cost-benefit analysis" of agency rules & regulations, and the coming fiasco of their application to regs that stand in the way of the financial services industry bilking you for even more.
