Well not really huge but a significant election coverage widget from MSNBC. I plan to have 3 tv sets in my living room with three different stations. I might even have Fox News as one of them just to see how cheerful those guys are tonight.
The McCain Dungeons & Dragons gang fails its saving throw:
Group to spend $2.8 million on anti-Obama ad
By JIM KUHNHENN – 32 minutes ago
WASHINGTON (AP) — A conservative nonprofit group with a past link to Sen. John McCain’s presidential campaign wants to spend $2.8 million on an ad questioning Democrat Barack Obama’s relationship to a founder of the 1960s radical group Weather Underground.
The ad, which is expected to begin airing Thursday in Michigan and Friday in Ohio, focuses on William Ayers, whose Weatherman organization took credit for a series of bombings, including nonfatal explosions at the Pentagon and U.S. Capitol four decades ago.
The ad was supposed to be the response to McCain getting his ass whipped over weaseling out of answering questions about his
four seven eight twelve houses by pretending not to know how many he had. (A-duh. That’s so much less elitist!)
But, uh… didn’t work.
Organizers sought to air the ad on Fox News Channel, but a Fox spokesman said the network declined to run it.
Too sleazy for Fox. Hilarious!
How dare they suggest, ummm… something, something, P.O.W., blah-blah! Grr!
America, welcome to “P.O.W. Fatigue.”

So I’m on a Fox News rampage over here but leave it to the next work to tell its viewers that “soldiers” and “monkey” are very difficult words to spell. The lady in the center first didn’t know there was a ‘d’ in soldiers followed by stating the following:
“This [viewer suggestion] was ‘Teach children how to use a dictionary. That is how they will learn to spell.’ But here’s the problem… Do they even sell hardcore dictionaries anymore? Like all on the computer…” — Gretchen Carlson
Courtesy of The Guardian, here are the 100 most difficult of the commonly used words to spell: (go figure how that makes any sense.)

Edit on 6/10/08: Maybe Fox News isn’t that bad at all… Ha, who am I kidding. But in a surprising move, they did cancel the show of the woman who I talk about below… (link)
I know I say this everytime I link something from them but are the people at Fox News really this racist? Are they really this ignorant and gonna continue to spit out lie after lie and one racist comment after another?
Terrorist Fist Bump? Is there even such a thing? Of course there is… at Fox News!
