This is what America looks like now

I thought that the Dems were going to have to get Zhang Yimou to get any decent buzz for the convention. Well, he can save his plane ticket.

From Palestine to Soweto to Sadr City, there are people who will now have faith that this is not a man who will bust down their door and destroy their lives. Once again, people will be able to say, "Thank God! The Americans are here!"

To say nothing of what could happen from Neah Bay, Washington to Key West, Florida; and Imperial Beach, California to Van Buren, Maine.

Who's dismayed more? The Borg Queen or John McCain?

Teachers with guns? That'll liven up those faculty meetings!*

And I betcha that the art and music departments will get all their funding, now, too... or else!

*The Texas state legislature votes to let teachers bear arms. Who's next? Hotel maids and garment workers? Yee haw!

Not a nice (or smart) thing to do

Gov. Schwarzenegger, as threatened, signed an executive order to reduce the salaries of 200,000 employees to the Federal minimum wage as a result of the ongoing state budgest stalemate. Arnold is personally worth more than $100,000,000.

The ripple effect of his stunt could end up costing the state more money. Not to mention make him very unpopular around state employees.
