Technorati is indexing me again! They had to make a code change to fix the problem with my blog getting stuck in their queue. Kudos to Eric M. and the guys at GetSatisfaction.com where they have "community powered support for Technorati".
Well, they're "sorta, kinda" indexing me anyway. It's on a 24 hour tape delay or something. So I never get picked up by Memeorandum because they pull from Technorati and Technorati has stuff I posted yesterday listed as my latest blog entry. And that's old news to Memeorandum.

POLITICO: Class Warfare "journalism" for the 99%…
At Mitt Romney's proposed California beach house, the cars will have their own separate elevator.
There's also a planned outdoor shower and a 3,600-square foot basement — a room with more floor space than the existing home's entire living quarters.
Those are just some of the amenities planned for the massive renovation of the Romneys' home in the tony La Jolla neighborhood of San Diego, according to plans on file with the city.
A project this ambitious comes with another feature you don't always find with the typical fixer-upper: its own lobbyist, hired by Romney to push the plan through the approval process.
Work on the project has not yet begun.
But it may not help Romney — whose wealth has caused him trouble connecting with average folks — to be seen building a split-level, four-vehicle garage that comes with a "car lift" to transport automobiles between floors, according to 2008 schematic plans for the renovation obtained by POLITICO that are on file with the city of San Diego.
Breaking news from 2008! Mitt Romney wants to build a big house! And four years later he still hasn't started construction, so he hired a "lobbyist" to navigate California's byzantine zoning, environment, and construction laws.
If there ever was a non-story, this is it. Except…
The documents were provided to POLITICO by a rival campaign, but authenticated independently by POLITICO with San Diego officials.
Maybe if Romney had hired Tony Rezko to "lobby" on his behalf it wouldn't have given POLITICO the vapors?
You know who else has a really nice California house?
Yup, Gore's oceanfront mansion dwarfs Romney's proposed renovation. Probably uses a whole lot more energy and emits CO2 by the barrel-full too.
Not that there's anything wrong with that. Folks have a right to spend their money as they see fit. Even preachy apocalyptic doomsayer hypocrites.
And presidential candidates. Being rich isn't against the law in this country.
