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.

In a little over 4 hours I'll be surrounded by Obamabots at the Caldwells Patch.com debate-watch party. The editor's a friend, and she asked nicely if I'd come, so I said "yes." I'm pretty sure I'm gonna be the only Romney supporter there, so if you're in the neighborhood come on down to the Cloverleaf and cheer Mitt (and me) on.
We're gonna need the help. Candy Crowley's got delusions of grandeur, on top of her blatant anti-Romney bias. So Mitt's outnumbered, 2 - 1. The liberal media (a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Democratic Party) considers that "fair."
"We're surrounded. That simplifies the problem!"

My Facebook friend Barbara Espinosa set her Wayback Machine for Hofstra 2008, where then-Senator Obama met up with John McCain in a similar presidential debate. Mr. Obama made some pretty impressive promises that day. Called 'em guarantees, he did. So imagine Barbara's surprise when she realized that none of those promises actually came true.
Obama 2008: Promised that those making less than $250,000 would not see "One Dime" of tax increases. Yeah, America fell for it. Too bad Congress had to pass Obamacare for us to find out there were 21 separate middle class tax increases buried inside it. And that the Obama tax 'em 'til they bleed machine was just getting warmed up.
Obama 2008: Pass Obamacare and it'll lower health care premiums by $2,500 per year. Dude, where's my savings? Average health insurance premiums have increased by over $3,000 per year. And that's before the rationing kicks in.
Obama 2008: Investments in Green Energy will create 5 million new jobs. Reality didn't even come close, and Obama's "investments" seem to be destined to fail. He's really great at picking losers. Creating jobs? Not so much.
Obama 2008: Promised to cut the deficit in half in 4 years. Instead he presided over the largest deficit increase in history, but conveniently "forgot" how much when joking about it with David Letterman. Besides, it's all Bush's fault anyway. Obama's just a spectator on the rollercoaster to fiscal oblivion.
Now if I were one of the "random" voters selected to question the candidates tonight, I might ask about those broken promises. But since Candy Crowley and CNN are doing the selecting we can be certain they'll weed out anyone who isn't star-struck by Dear Leader and thus leave us with the usual assortment of Democratic Party plants masquerading as "concerned, undecided" citizens. That's called journalism. Or something.
Thankfully my blog bud Kim came up with
a debate drinking game. I hope it eases the pain.
