A Collection


View larger image

Here's a collection of Bush memorabilia. The Two Faces of Bush and Digby's commentary about it on Hullabaloo. Cameron Marlowe has put his expertise to work on a fascinating "noun phrase" analysis of the debate. And here's another technical take from linguist Mark Liberman of Language Log at the University of Pennsylvania. The video clips entitled "How Bush Did" also break it down for us. And finally some rhetoric from the GOP convention.

I am pleased to see that the New York Times, finally taking up its duties, won their lawsuit to have memos concerning the nuclear threat in Iraq released, and did quite a spread on Sunday on the way the administration used misinformation to their own ends.

Voter registrations are up. People are taking an active role in trying to preserve what's left of our democracy. Let's hope it's not too late.

And tonight, on national television, Luke Skywalker debates Darth Vader, to quote a dear and close personal friend. I hope everyone has their analysis kits handy.

Photo note: From my prop closet. A slightly gritty collection of archiac horseshoe crabs, which, to my dismay, have disappeared from the beaches in recent years. (These fellas were already shells when I found them) Let's hope that's what happens to this administration.
