Everything you need to know about and expect during
the most important election of our lifetimes

  • Remember that whole "John Edwards doesn't want to be VP, he just wants to be attorney general" meme? Because attorney generals get to screw around on their wives, obviously. But it is a slow news month, or it was until they arrested Batman, so sometimes they don't. [National Enquirer]
  • Wachovia is my bank ever since I joined this company that doesn't pay people in checks so I had to find an old bank account to dig out of overdraft Hades, and there is this beautiful woman named Emery who works there and is always in a really good mood. Probably because there is no one else ever there. (Also: free cookies.) Emery, if you are reading this, just know I gave wayyy more than my share of overdraft fees to keep your company afloat. [AP]
  • Everything else about the economy also sucks, except the stock market. [WSJ]
  • Did you know even a diet solely comprising pureed pears and breast milk can cause heartburn? Brought to you by the makers of Prilosec. [WSJ]
  • And what that means is that kids today: now even more worthless! [WSJ]
  • Um, ha. [Vanity Fair]
  • The McCain campaign may be kind of dirty and hacky with all the attacks on Obama's patriotism and shit but this video is seriously some next-level satire. [NY Mag]
  • Obama is actually kind of popular with the Jews. [Huff Post]
  • But that is not why Jesse Jackson wants to reenact Obama's circumcision! No, according to Shelby Steele that is just a matter of Jesse Jackson's heroism and principle and, you know, who am I to accuse Shelby Steele of being disingenuous when I am just another vapid interminably coolhunting principle-free twentysomething hipster who is totally ungrateful for all the suffering that happened back in the sixties so my generation could have these fabulous carefree lives.

It's really depressing about John Edwards. It seems like the reporting here is actually pretty solid, despite the source. It's just too detailed, and there's too much they can be asked to prove, to be tabloid BS.

My bet is they are holding out on the pictures to sell them to a major network. They would be worth some cash that way - much more than in the print edition of the paper or on their own website.

It will be interesting to see whether this gets picked up in the MSM or not. Either way...if it is true, thank god Edwards didn't get the nomination. I wanted him to. But Dems would be up the river if this came out while he was the presidential OR veep nominee.
