From The Atlanta Journal-Constitution:
Watching CNN’s Cafferty File, we learn that the collision of the Bush family and the Obama famly at the White House today was something like “the Flintstones meet the Jetsons.”
Close, but no cigar! You see, kids, I have photographic proof that Grumpy Jack was only half right. Here’s are Chimpy and Pickles greeting Michelle and Barack Obama in front of the White House.

There is a reason the McCain campaign keeps Governor Sarah Palin away from the press.
This is a direct excerpt from Katie Couric’s One-On-One interview with Sarah Palin, which aired Wednesday on CBS.
COURIC: Why isn’t it better, Governor Palin, to spend $700 billion helping middle-class families struggling with health care, housing, gas and groceries? … Instead of helping these big financial institutions that played a role in creating this mess?
PALIN: Ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the health care reform that is needed to help shore up the economy– Oh, it’s got to be about job creation too. So health care reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions.
If McCain wins, this woman will be a 72-year-old heartbeat away from being president of the United States.
I had no internets connection last night (thank you, Tropical Storm or Hurricane Fay) , so, in order to have a poster for you kids tonight, I had to rely on what I had on my computer. I found a comic book cover that I didn’t even remember I had and thought I would go with that. Of course, that means I had to find a story to match it, and I came across this from Jack Cafferty at CNN :
Commentary: Is McCain another George W. Bush?
NEW YORK (CNN) — Russia invades Georgia and President Bush goes on vacation. Our president has spent one-third of his entire two terms in office either at Camp David, Maryland, or at Crawford, Texas, on vacation.
His time away from the Oval Office included the month leading up to 9/11, when there were signs Osama bin Laden was planning to attack America, and the time Hurricane Katrina destroyed the city of New Orleans.
Sen. John McCain takes weekends off and limits his campaign events to one a day. He made an exception for the religious forum on Saturday at Saddleback Church in Southern California.
Hillary Clinton’s New Hampshire primary victory over Barack Obama seemed to stun no one more than reporters and pundits who covered it, raising questions about an overreliance on polls in setting a campaign narrative.
Obama’s victory — and a big one at that — was such a presumption that there was a CNN discussion before the polls closed about how much a relatively narrow win would hurt him.
Instead, Clinton led from the time first results came in until the end. She had 39 percent of the vote to Obama’s 36 percent.
“Over the last 20 years overall the media has fallen into poll myopia,” said David Bohrman, executive producer of CNN’s political coverage. “Sometimes we as a profession lose track of, no matter what the polls say a month ahead or a year ahead, the American citizen has to go out and actually vote. I like that part of the process.”
