The computer upgrade went surprisingly well over the weekend. With so much happening, there’s not a moment to lose…

Former Polipundit contributors Alexander K. McClure and Lorie Byrd have started up their own political blog at Wizbang!. AKM is a student of politics and polls, and Lorie’s no slouch, either. Given how quickly the political scene is bound to heat up once Labor Day rolls around, you’ll want to bookmark their page to keep up with how things are trending before then.

The recovery signs remain good for Barbaro. Here’s a nice article with a picture of Barbaro reuniting with his rider Edgar Prado for the first time since the Preakness.

A couple of notes on the Sox:
1) While it’s tough to watch just how much the Blue Jays give the Sox fits, at least we’re done with the Tampa Bay Devil Rays for awhile. If I’m tired of watching them, I can only imagine how sick the Red Sox are of playing them….

2) Given all the recent health issues surrounding their pitching staff, I think this upcoming 10-game road trip (which started with a 7-6 loss last night) will be an important one, not just for this trip but the remainder of the season as well. I’m as concerned as Red is. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: Rudy Seanez and Julian Tavarez are NOT the answers when the 6th and 7th innings come around, and my guess is that Terry’s feeling the same way. By this time of the season, managers pretty much know who they can – and can’t – count on. My guess is Francona knows Seanez falls into the latter group and Tavarez is well on his way to punching his ticket there. If they don’t turn around by the end of this trip, look for Theo Epstein to start considering replacements from Pawtucket and elsewhere.

Finally, as venerable an institution as the Washington Post is starting to get it re: New Orleans and the Katrina tragedy. Those who frequent this space know how much I’ve been pushing the corruption/incompetence angle and the mainstream media’s shoddy reporting on this, so it’s good to see at least one of them finally waking up to the truth. One can only hope others will now follow. Hell, it’s only been near ten months, better late than never, I guess…

Looks like we’re gonna be hearing alot about financial improprieties at Fannie Mae in the next few weeks. The always-ahead-of-the-curve TKS has a primer with some helpful links. Between this, the FBI raid on Rep. William Jefferson’s office, and now Harry Reid’s potential troubles, I’m wondering how much longer we’ll be hearing “San Fran Nan” Pelosi whine about the Republican Party’s “culture of corruption”. My guess is, not much longer.
