Bits and Pieces for the Week of February 3 - 9

Wow. The conservative wingnuts of the Republican party really, REALLY hate John McCain! Imagine... some ultra-conservatives are planning to vote for the Democratic nominee just to spite him. (Mike)

Apparently Romney's kids were tired of watching their father throw away their inheritance by funding his own campaign. (Mike)

The Pacific Ocean is "the world's rubbish dump." "A 'plastic soup' of waste floating in the Pacific Ocean is growing at an alarming rate and now covers an area twice the size of the continental United States, scientists have said." (7 of 6)

Poor Ted Haggard! "New Life Church said Tuesday that former pastor Ted Haggard has prematurely ended a 'spiritual restoration' process begun when he was fired for sexual misconduct." (7 of 6)

Why you shouldn't be using cosmetics on your kids. (Mike)

Heather Wokusch is offering, for two weeks, free downloading of her best-selling two-volume book, The Progressives' Handbook: Get the Facts and Make a Difference Now (Mike)

The chief complaint that most Progressives have against Hillary Clinton (and repeated incessantly by the Obama campaign) is her AUMF vote in 2002. If you feel the same, then this analysis by Eriposte might change your mind. (Mike)

Perfection stopped! Of course I'd rather talk about the effect Pau Gasol going to the L.A. Lakers will have on the Phoenix Suns. Does the NBA need the great TV ratings a Celtics vs Lakers Championship will provide? (7 of 6)
