Et tu New York City?
Unofficial Tallies in City Understated Obama Vote
Black voters are heavily represented in the 94th Election District in Harlem’s 70th Assembly District. Yet according to the unofficial results from the New York Democratic primary last week, not a single vote in the district was cast for Senator Barack Obama.

That anomaly was not unique. In fact, a review by The New York Times of the unofficial results reported on primary night found about 80 election districts among the city’s 6,106 where Mr. Obama supposedly did not receive even one vote, including cases where he ran a respectable race in a nearby district. continued

What is it about Obama? Is he the "messiah?"
Oh good lord no, but after 7 years of bush, I can see why people are rallying behind someone different. See the NY Times on The Charisma Mandate.
While the cult of Obama seems unsettling, God help me, the thought of McCain in the oval office and a million more years of wars and occupations is terrifying no matter how supposedly "liberal" he is.

Old JFK documents may stir controversy
DALLAS (Reuters) - A batch of old documents linked to the slaying of President John F. Kennedy has reportedly been unearthed, including a highly suspect transcript of a conversation between assassin Lee Harvey Oswald and Oswald's killer Jack Ruby, the Dallas Morning News said on Sunday.
...
But one potentially controversial item is a transcript of an exchange between Oswald and Ruby in which they discuss killing Kennedy to halt the mafia-busting agenda of his brother, Attorney General Robert Kennedy.

The Morning News said one theory about the transcript was that it was part of a movie script Wade was working on with producers, for a film that was never made.

The transcript resembles one published by the Warren Commission, which investigated Kennedy's assassination and concluded Oswald acted alone. The FBI had determined the conversation between Oswald and Ruby -- this time about killing Texas Gov. John Connally -- was definitely fake, the newspaper said.

Connally was riding in the car with Kennedy and was wounded in the attack.
Hmm. Try reconciling that with this.

Hey, let's get back to impeaching the Veep.
AfterDowningStreet.Org has instructions for a fast impeachment. 54% of Americans want him impeached. Perhaps more would if they even had a slight clue as to the crimes attributed to him. You can start by signing Wexler's petition. I like the honkathon too.
Or maybe you are chickenshit like me to get involved because of this. I certainly hope that they don't mean a sweet little old artist like me.

An obvious conspiracy theory: The Dumbing Down of Americans. That states are even contemplating teaching intelligent design rather than actual science is quite telling.
From Patricia Cohen in the NY Times: Dumb and Dumber: Are Americans Hostile to Knowledge? What is scary that many Americans don't really think that having knowledge even matters. But it all makes sense because you cannot run a dictatorship with a well educated population, can you?

Ack. Ack. Aaaaaack. The story that won't go away keeps adding TMI.
JFK's 'secret love child' had affair with President Bush's sister-in-law ... and she backs up his claims to the Kennedy bloodline
