What are YOU doing in Canada?

1. Why is John Edwards’s best excuse for cheating on his wife, “but her cancer was in remission!”? Since when is it OK to cheat on your wife as long as she’s healthy? Is it more heinous to cheat when she’s sick? As Maureen Dowd said in her recent column, “his infidelity was oncologically correct”. Wait, did I really just link to Maureen Dowd? AND AGREE WITH HER? Oy. John Edwards, what strange bedfellows your adultery creates.

2. Russia invading the South Ossetia region of Georgia to reclaim part of Russia’s territory in the interest of Russians abroad sounds an awful lot like Germans invading the Sudetenland region of Austria to reclaim part of Germany’s territory in the interest of Germans abroad. The difference is that Russia is weak, underfed, over-liquored and poor, while Germany was strong, fed, sober and rich in their military. Putin and his ilk are attempting to resuscitate the Soviet corpse, to bring back the ‘good old days’. Poor choice, Putin. It is bound to fail.

3. I had to spend 45 minutes on the bus going home yesterday listening to a Pittsburgh Democrat pontificate on the election. He declared that McCain will destroy the economy. He is pissed that McCain betrayed his fiscal conservative beliefs by hopping on board with Bush and supporting the Bush tax cuts.

I promptly had an aneurysm. Supporting the Bush tax cuts is part of being a fiscal conservative. McCain was opposed to them originally. By switching, he is actually becoming a fiscal conservative. Bush is not truly fiscally conservative, as evidenced by the huge amount of spending, but he did enact the tax cuts which created the prosperity of the past 5 years. What does this guy define ‘fiscal conservative’ as?
