Keep Talking

Whew, now that Dobson told us what his insider information was, wow, I'm really feeling better about it.

"So, Karl Rove shared some of that with me. He also made it clear that the President was looking for a certain kind of candidate, namely a woman to replace Justice OíConnor. And you can imagine what that did to the short list. That cut it..."

"Well, what Karl told me is that some of those individuals took themselves off that list and they would not allow their names to be considered, because the process has become so vicious and so vitriolic and so bitter, that they didnít want to subject themselves or the members of their families to it."

Yeah, that makes me feel tons better.

Intersection of Ideas

You may find Rosenberg's latest post interesting - especially if you have the same convergence of interstes as I do. He posts on a party James Carville threw for the release of Vince Flynn's new book. Politics, Great Fiction, 24, and yeah, Miers all mixed together.

Oh, and Dobson's little 'insider' view of the nomination - it pushes me further away from liking it.

Sure, Here's My Number

They're getting better or maybe it's worse, or just more pathetic:

Barclays Bank PLC. always looks forward for the high security of our clients. Some customers have been receiving an email claiming to be from Barclays advising them to follow a link to what appear to be a Barclays web site, where they are prompted to enter their personal Online Banking details. Barclays is in no way involved with this email and the web site does not belong to us.

Barclays is proud to announce about their new updated secure system. We updated our new SSL servers to give our customers a better, fast and secure online banking service.

Due to the recent update of the servers, you are requested to please update your account info at the following link.

I wonder how many people will bite on that one. "Hey, people that claim to be us are asking you to go to a web site and enter your acount info. Now go to a web site and enter your account info."

A Charade?

According to the Internet Archive, Charade (1963 movie with Cary Grant and Audrey Hepburn) is in the public domain.

This film is public domain due to the failure to put the then required copyright notice in the released print.

Dinner And A Story

The Kid should really blog about his FWT dinner tonight.

Sorta inspires an AO road tour.

Ah, next year.

Delay Rudy

If you're interested in future (or even current) politics - even if youre not part of the '08 basement - you should read Rosenberg's latest post, " DINNER WITH TOM DELAY AND RUDY GIULIANI -- THE GOP'S PAST, AND ITS FUTURE?".

Here's some quotes to get you interested:

As you would expect, Mayor Giuliani, RNC Chairman Ken Mehlman and GOP operative Ralph Reed were among those giving DeLay his standing O. But also standing were Sen. Joe Lieberman, the once and possibly future Democratic presidential candidate, and his lovely wife, Hadassah.
Giuliani got his first big laugh of the night by saying, "I never ever thought Tom DeLay would refer to me as a man to his right. I think I might be able to make use of that some day."

Which brings us back to Giuliani. Last night was my first opportunity to see him up close and personal, to shake his hand and take his measure and see him operate in front of such a conservative crowd. There was no question in my mind: he's running for president, and right now I believe he very well could win the GOP nomination in '08.

I'm not endorsing him, mind you. I have serious problems with his pro-abortion and pro-gay rights positions, to say nothing of his messy divorce in office after having an affair with a staffer. But I can't tell you how many conservatives I talked to last night that said, "Yeah, sure, except for those things he'd be a fantastic president!"

Them's my thoughts too.

Paint Shop Pro X

Been playing around with PSP X (also knows as 10). Seems pretty nice so far. They updated the look and feel - made it look a bit cleaner and smoother.

It's now a part of Corel, not sure if that's good or bad.

Just a Computer Mic

Wow, a studio condenser mic with a USB output.

So if you can have up to 256 USB devices...

I'd say it's pretty cool for any podcasters.
