"Daisy" II

Following up on a related post below, check out this video from a right wing crackhouse site that is listed on John McCain's campaign site as a blog that "you may be interested in reading and responding to."

"Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, John Edwards. They're all too weak, too inexperienced, and too politically correct to prevent a nuclear 9/11 from occurring in America. In your heart you know it's true."

A month or so ago, two of John Edwards' bloggers were bludgeoned into submission by the right. And McCain is putting links on his campaign site to this bullshit?

Geeks: Don't Vote McCain

I can't get enough of RSS feeds. In particular, I can't get enough of Google Reader.

(Still reading?)

Briefly: Google Reader allows you to (i) get the most news in the least time, (ii) bypass a significant number of advertisements, and (iii) keep up with sites that you wouldn't otherwise take the time to check (Hello Drunk Athletes!). Plus, the sharing feature is a pretty fantastic way of imposing your shitty tastes on others without also imposing your insipid world view.

In doing research for a separate project on the absurdity of the ongoing presidential campaigns, I decided to grab the RSS feeds from the major candidates' sites. One problem: John McCain ain't got one. (Yes, Obama, Clinton (x3), Edwards, Giuliani, and Romney all have feeds.) In fact, the "blog"* on McCain's site is... an invitation to start your own blog! The page's words:

"Blogs are unquestionably an important part of today's political landscape and we are excited about hearing from you! Here are three ways you can get involved today as we build our official campaign blog."

The site then has the audacity to require you to register (with e-mail and postal address being "required" fields) in order to even post a question or a video that could possibly be posted on the forthcoming McCain blog.

[Two not-quite-unrelated facts: (1) McCain is 70 years old, and (2) McCain's campaign has raised $12 million.]

I'm sure this is all for the best; I'd probably get irritated every time I saw a new item from a McCain blog posting. I'm getting irritated just thinking about it.
