He was kinda cute!

Alfred, Lord Sotosyn (Alfred Soto), Wednesday, 8 November 2006 23:18 (fifteen years ago) link

He had so much going for him then, didn't he?

Gerard (Gerard), Wednesday, 8 November 2006 23:21 (fifteen years ago) link

maybe cheney's just had a crush on him all these years.

Ah, so that's what Lileks' desktop wallpaper looks like.

Ford looks like he wants to tie a turd around Cheney's neck.

I just checked my email and thought the wording of this was funny:

Gov. Howard Dean How did this happen? - The Democratic Party ... This year will be remembered as another moment when Americans … 4:37 pm

Remarkable how noone has commented on (presumably) the daughter, to the right of mom. She's not just looking sad, but more so looking very "Why is my bastard dad such a prick?! And why was I dragged on stage to back him up?!"
Now there's an image of the impact of shocking teen realisation for ya...

You guys oversold the speech a little bit -- he's always been a subpar public speaker, though he was more inflection-happy than usual.

The answers to the press questions, though: mortifying. It was like watching a man shrink before your eyes. Embarrassed. Irritated. Bewildered. Annoyed! (Also hoarse.)

Eddie fucking Deezen would've been more authortative.

GOP to call for Allen concession?

gabbneb (gabbneb), Thursday, 9 November 2006 00:42 (fifteen years ago) link

I really don't ever want to look at Santorum in any context, especially Aphex Santorum.

gabbneb (gabbneb), Thursday, 9 November 2006 00:42 (fifteen years ago) link

Fitzgerald concedes to Murphy in PA-8

still outstanding...

auto-recount in CT-2
absentee ballots in OH-2
counting continues in NM-1

gabbneb (gabbneb), Thursday, 9 November 2006 00:49 (fifteen years ago) link

but we lost PA-6, and while recount is possible in WY-AL, it doesn't look promising

gabbneb (gabbneb), Thursday, 9 November 2006 00:55 (fifteen years ago) link
