"Republicans might want to restrain themselves just a bit, here."
Indeed. From what little I know about her, I really like Sarah Palin. But it pays to remember that McCain is still the sponsor of McCain-Feingold and he's still the guy who got an F- from Gun Owners of America for his 2nd Amendment stance. He's still the guy who sticks his thumb in the eye of the Republican base at every opportunity, although he's been understandably circumspect of late.
I'm for sure not voting for Teh One, but if I manage to bring myself to vote for McCain/Palin it will definitely be with held nose. Doesn't matter really, as Wyoming will go solidly for McCain with or without my vote.

They can't be serious!
According to the Washington Post: "MSNBC is removing Keith Olbermann and Chris Matthews as the anchors of live political events, bowing to growing criticism that they are too opinionated to be seen as neutral in the heat of the presidential campaign."Keith Olbermann "too opinionated to be seen as neutral"? I guess what amazes me is that anyone at MSNBC could have possibly thought they could pass off Olbermann as neutral or objective. That's like trying to tell people that Al Franken is funny.
Curiouser and curiouser..
Where's the outrage over the manhandling and arrest of ABC producer Asa Eslocker, who was arrested while trying to interview Democratic senators and donors leaving a private event at the Brown Palace Hotel during the DNC? Ten days later, when I search Google News for Asa Eslocker arrest I get a whopping 255 hits, including duplicates. Most of these stories just lay out the very sparse facts of his arrest, leaving a lot of questions. Like 'How could this guy and his camera crew block a 20-foot-wide sidewalk?' and 'Who put such a big bug up these cops butts that they arrested a journalist in full view of his cameras, when they had to know that would bring an internal investigation at best?' I find it exceedingly odd that his fellow journalists aren't on this like white on rice, at the very least filling in all the Who, What, Where, Why, When, & How questions the initial reports left out.
The same search for Amy Goodman arrest (anchor of the daily television and radio news program, “Democracy Now!”, who was arrested during the RNC in St. Paul) yields only 994 hits, including duplicates.
From all reports it appears that these folks were just doing their jobs, covering the news. That ought to hit pretty close to home for most journalists and I'd think they would be hollering their heads off. But instead they're curiously silent. Go figure..
