When did willing to compromise become flipping?

I thought that was just the political process.

The McCain campaign is accusing Obama of changing his position on off-shore drilling simply because he stated that he was willing to compromise in order to achieve his primary energy goals.
"If we've got a plan on the table that I think meets the goals that America has to set and there are some things in there that I don't like then obviously that's something that you know I would consider because that's the nature of how we govern in a democracy."
Sen. Barack Obama

The 44 pound cat, found and adopted in South Jersey, is just two pounds away from the Guiness World Record for fat cats. If this is the 44 pound cat, I can't even imagine what the 46 pound cat looked like.

Daily Show: Dick move of the week

And we don't mean Cheney.
"John McCain thanks the Hilton family for their support. Now if you'll excuse him, he's got to take a nationally televised dump on their daughter."
Beyond that, John McCain and the media are calling Obama arrogant... for thinking he can run the most powerful country on Earth.

Ted "Tubes" Stevens swerves into the left lane of the justice system

Earlier today, Sen. Stevens (R-AK) got the go-ahead for a September trial date. With any luck he'll get some bad press, make kielbasa on his illegally gifted grill and settle for involuntary retirement before Christmas.

XKCD: Frustration

Some can solve this particular puzzle with a simple flick of the thumb and forefinger in no time at all, but for others, it involves many hours of twisting and turning in Frustration.

A Toast

While it seems we certainly drink as much as any other generation, we can't hold a candle to the toasts of the good old days.

O Lord God divine
Who turned the water into wine
Please forgive we foolish men
We are going to turn it back again.
