Poisoning the Well

Althouse: Stirring up rumors that Obama may replace Biden with Hillary Clinton..

It would be a great “game change” — to use the term applied 4 years ago to Sarah Palin.

And — amusingly — it would be Obama taking advice from Sarah Palin, who just a couple days ago said:

[T]he strategists there in the Obama campaign have got to look at a diplomatic way of replacing Joe Biden on the ticket with Hillary. And I don’t want to throw out that suggestion and have them actually accept the suggestion because then an Obama-Hillary Clinton ticket would have a darn good chance of winning.

Don’t you love the role of Sarah Palin in American politics? On the sidelines… looming…

Funniest thing I’ve read today.


UPDATE: from the comments-

The only person who despises The Comrade more than Hillary Clinton is Bill Clinton. I’ve had a pet theory for some time that Bill Clinton will bury the fatal dagger when the time comes.

This is great theatre.

Genetically engineering ‘ethical’ babies is a moral obligation, says Oxford professor

Genetically engineering ‘ethical’ babies is a moral obligation, says Oxford professor – Telegraph.

Good intentions? Road to hell? This is Eugenics masquerading as ethics. Who decides what is ‘ethical’?

Ah, it’s an Oxford Professor- my mind boggles thinking of what this aristocrat thinks makes a ‘better’ person. Better soldiers? We can build ’em! Obedient citizens? Coming right up!

Pardon me if the idea of the Saul Alinskys of this world getting ‘hold of this technology is frightening as hell.

Now on WordPress

Changed from Movable Type to WordPress- and it was the easiest port I have ever done. WP was a breeze to install, configure, and get running. That is so different than my experience over the years with MT that I kept waiting for something to fail, go wrong, screw up- and it did not happen. W00t!

…and Curiosity’s shadow. On Mars. My mind reels.

Watched the Curiosity landing last night. Magnificent. I was disappointed by the first few snapshots. I mean, after the brilliance and multi-fold  technological pirouette of a landing (supersonic parachutes, descent stages, heat shield jettison, retro rockets, skycrane), all we get is Apollo 11 grainy black and white photos akin to cave dwelling scratchings? Honestly, I expected an Instagram.
