Here's an example of the seedy underbelly lying beneath George Allen's "good ol' boy" exterior -- an example of the kind of "common sense leadership" he inspires in his campaign workers: Webb Campaign Steals Marvel Comics "How-To" Art For Flyer. I suppose we'll be seeing quite a bit more of this kind of rhetoric in the near future.

Virtucon, apparently the unofficial insult comic blog for the Allen campaign, informed us that Virginians Like Their U.S. Senators -- Both of Them. Looks pretty grim. For some bizarre reason, Virginia seems to like having a sock puppet for a Senator. Maybe Virginia is really populated with sock puppets. (Some of the people driving on 95 sure act that way.)

Last night, I watched some of the History Channel's series The Revolution. It was interesting to me because, much to my chagrin, I had previously not known much about the American Revolution. I noticed something odd though, when viewed through modern eyes: America was basically founded by liberals. That's a fairly counter-intuitive concept. The popular meme today is that liberals are "destroying America," "anti-American," etc. while conservatives are "protecting American values," etc. etc. Now I'm sure that liberalism was different in the 1700s than it is today, but the Patriots were definitely liberals in the sense that they were fighting for expanded civil liberties (for white male land-owners, at least), which is also one of the talking points of modern liberals. Even more surprising is that the Patriots were militant liberals. That's a concept you don't see much from today's left. Well, except from the angry liberal bloggers, of course. :)

It's started. I guess this will be the story of the day: Let the gloating begin: Rove cleared in Plame case. This exemplifies why I think Malkin and Kos are two sides of the same coin: Childishness. And this wingnut blogger celebration is over... not being indicted. Kind of a strange thing to gloat about.
