Easy for you to say, BigChill, since to my recollection you’ve never volunteered to go back and fix it. You think I’ve got nothing better to do?

Republicans Vote For Clinton

Tuesday, March 18th, 2008

I’m continuously baffled by American politics… take this example:

Many Voting For Clinton to Boost GOP

Conservative radio giant Rush Limbaugh said on Fox News on Feb. 29 that he was urging conservatives to cross over and vote for Clinton, their bête noire nonpareil, “if they can stomach it.”

“I want our party to win. I want the Democrats to lose,” Limbaugh said. “They’re in the midst of tearing themselves apart right now. It is fascinating to watch. And it’s all going to stop if Hillary loses.”

He added, “I know it’s a difficult thing to do to vote for a Clinton, but it will sustain this soap opera, and it’s something I think we need.”

Limbaugh’s exhortations seemed to work. In Ohio and Texas on March 4, Republicans comprised 9 percent of the Democratic primary electorate, more than twice the average GOP share of the turnout in the earlier contests where exit polling was conducted. Clinton ran about even with Obama among Republicans in both states, a far more favorable showing among GOP voters than in the early races.

GAH! How is this even possible? What kind of system are they running over there?

Mission complete

As the primary witness and bag carrier, I can confirm that Sarah completed her charity run today. She started about here:

The starting line

and 29 minutes later she finished by Blackfriars bridge:

Somewhere quite close to the finish line...

Sarah’s charity run thing

Sunday, March 16th, 2008

Sarah is planning to run 3 miles for Sport Relief this afternoon.

If you have lots of spare money sitting around in shoe-boxes just waiting for something to spend it on, I’m sure she would be very grateful if you would sponsor her. (The donation page mentions “Paul Travers” by name, as he set up their team. Do not be alarmed, it still counts as sponsoring Sarah).
