How appropriate.

Ned Raggett (Ned), Wednesday, 8 November 2006 22:53 (sixteen years ago) link

He was kinda cute!

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

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

Gerard (Gerard), Wednesday, 8 November 2006 23:21 (sixteen 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...

Gerard (Gerard), Wednesday, 8 November 2006 23:36 (sixteen years ago) link

it was only the crooked mouth that tipped me off

jhoshea megafauna (scoopsnoodle), Wednesday, 8 November 2006 23:37 (sixteen years ago) link

"I don't know, Dick. I think Lynne's stuff here is a bit too steamy for my tastes."

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.

I wonder which one of us will turn into the evil mastermind one day.

Dan.

My money's on Esteban. He's already got a Visa.

that picture from the Santorum press conference is not getting old. at all.

don weiner (don weiner), Thursday, 9 November 2006 00:41 (sixteen years ago) link

GOP to call for Allen concession?

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

webb wins VA

gear (gear), Thursday, 9 November 2006 01:50 (sixteen years ago) link

So much for "this could carry on for two months."

horseshoe (horseshoe), Thursday, 9 November 2006 01:54 (sixteen years ago) link

Jena (JenaP), Thursday, 9 November 2006 02:03 (sixteen years ago) link

That picture of Santorum and family looks like a still shot out of Arrested Development. It cracked me up.

Earl Nash (earlnash), Thursday, 9 November 2006 02:17 (sixteen years ago) link

That Santorum shot ought to win a Pulitzer.

Super Cub (Debito), Thursday, 9 November 2006 02:20 (sixteen years ago) link

Oh my, this has been a fine day indeed.

The wife, though: look at that little Cheneyesque snarl.

Michael Daddino (epicharmus), Thursday, 9 November 2006 02:39 (sixteen years ago) link

i couldn't think of anything for her to say :(

gbx (skowly), Thursday, 9 November 2006 02:40 (sixteen years ago) link

A "GRRRRRRR" would suffice.

Michael Daddino (epicharmus), Thursday, 9 November 2006 02:42 (sixteen years ago) link

I'm not seeing any Webb updates anywhere.

Alfred, Lord Sotosyn (Alfred Soto), Thursday, 9 November 2006 02:43 (sixteen years ago) link

He won. The AP called it 40 mins ago.
