….Is it really the middle of October? Where the $#@!% has this year gone?

Rob and Dave are blogging about cooking for one. Don’t they know you can cook for four almost as cheaply? (Hat tip: Instapundit)

Want to know why Barack Obama is where he is in the polls right now? This is one of the best pieces of political analysis I’ve read this year. Here’s Dr. Melissa’s money quote:

For Boomers, electing Barack Obama is about them, not him. They feel so invested not in the candidate, but in themselves. These politics are personal and pathologically so. Should Obama lose, his supporters lose a chance to manifest their dreams for a generation. They act as though the opportunity would never come again, but that’s patently absurd. The fact is, the hippies want to drive the multi-culti, equal rights, liberal car while they’re still young enough to enjoy it. Barak Obama is just one more hippie-to-yuppie acquisition. It’s all about them.

I encourage you to read the whole thing – she nails this whole election on its very head.

…And it also might explain why the attacks on Sarah Palin by the Loony Left have been so visceral. It’s not that Baby Boomers love Obama so – hell, they know virtually nothing about him – they just want one last chance at feeling like they’re a part of something bigger than they are, one last time before they buy the farm. It’s kinda like “Berkeley Free Speech”, or the “Anti-War Movement”, or the “Women’s Movement” all over again, this time in Presidential politics. And the thought that this one final chance to have their lives mean something could be taken away from them by, of all things, another woman, drives them absolutely crazy with contempt. derision, and hatred.

Shouldn’t this story be getting more play in the mainstream dino-media? Gives me pause, that’s for sure. Oh, I forgot, they’d rather focus on truly important stuff like this.

Personally, I’m amazed the Democrats were unable to hide this story until after the election. The Pelosicrats must be losing their touch.

Sox woes: I’m sorry, but I can’t watch Jason Varitek at the plate any longer, it’s simply too painful. He may still be a great receiver, but the Sox have got to do something to upgrade their catching position this off-season. And perhaps outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury is not the Johnny Damon reincarnation Red Sox Nation thought he’d be this time last year?

I love the new look of Power Line Blog. Check it out!

While the world is fosing on Iran (and rightly so), I think the doings in Pakistan are gonna be equally important over the next several months as well. Not to be an alarmist, but I don’t think the world is as far away from global conflict as others might think or hope. Oh well, glad someone with Obama’s extensive foreign policy experience will be at the helm of the Ship of State…
