Blogger sucks.

For starters, some laughs:

Cheney is stirring up trouble! Publicly acknowledging that one of his daughters is a lesbian and stating that marriage laws ought to be left to the states! I'm fascinated by Cheney's daughter Mary; she has a fairly high profile role in the campaign (director of VP operations) - a campaign that holds as a central issue the idea that discrimination against gays and lesbians should be written into the Constitution.

I can't fathom it. How can Mary Cheney stand to be associated with such a complete bigot and homophobe like Bush? How can her father promote the idea that his own kid should be treated, at best, as a second-class citizen? Or work for a group that views his own kid as a hellbound moral degenerate?

As a parent, it makes me sad for her, and I feel a special kind of contempt for Papa Cheney. Lucas will know the difference between saying the right thing, and actually doing the right thing.

It's official! Moderates have no place in the GOP! It amazes me that there are still groups like the Log Cabin Republicans kowtowing to a party that wants absolutely nothing to do with them. I can't think of a more misguided sense of loyalty; it's on a par with Christopher's worship of Tony Soprano.

Benjamin Ginsberg, Bush campaign lawyer, has resigned. Apparently he gave "advice" to the Swift Boat Gang. "Advice" in this case is defined as "what to put in the ads, when and where to run the ads, oh, and here's a bunch of money".

Finally, Rulon Gardner announced his retirement after his final Olympic match. Smart money says we'll see him in the WWF this fall.
