What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Three Links for a Busy Tuesday

Hey, here's a fun chart showing the switch form mostly campaign driven spending on advertising to outside group spending. Also, in case it matters, I've heard that so far, spending on the off-year election is running higher than for the last Presidential Year election. Good times. Good times. So glad we didn't' have to worry about corporate spending skewing the political landscape.

And here's a story about IP issues that may ground Predator (and I'm betting, Global Hawk) from making missile strikes. I think that qualifies as a big, "Oops." Also, another argument to quit this crap of outsourcing government functions. Hi, welcome to business practices. Not everybody had to take the Business Ethics 101 class, so they missed a lot of the "Thou shall not screw over thy partner" lecture. (grokked from Vince)

And since I talked about it in the comments in a previous post, the AP/Knowledge Works poll article. At the bottom they give the percentages. I'd still like to see a lot more of the poll, but I'll just point to the fact that 76% of Obama supporters still support him, with only 8% saying they'll switch their vote this fall. Compare that with McCain who only is keeping 71% of voters Republican, with 9% saying they'll vote Democratic. But what do you hear on the news? "Obama in trouble, Democrats defecting, blah blah." Uh, yeah. Your "liberal" news media at work.
