Bits and Pieces for the Week of October 26 - November 1

Sarah Palin gets the First Amendment backwards. (Mike)

Barack Obama's family tree in photos (h/t Ellen C.) (Mike)

I wonder if 7 of 6 has received any of these new McCain robocalls. (Mike)

The McIdiot Campaign demanded the L.A. Times to release a video of Obama attending a party with Professor Rashid Khalidi. Turns out a McCain-led group donated almost 450K to Khalidi's Center for Palestine Research and Studies for work in the West Bank. The McLiar Campaign seems to know no bounds. (7 of 6)

"About one out of seven female veterans of Afghanistan or Iraq who visit a Veterans Affairs center for medical care report being a victim of sexual assault or harassment during military duty..." That is only the ones that report it, so probably 25%... sickening. (7 of 6)

We have destroyed Iraq's infrastructure, up to 1 million dead civilians, 4 million refugees and bombed what little resistence there is left. Now one last act of submission or blackmail is required... "Army Gen. Ray Odierno, the top U.S. military commander in Iraq, informed Iraqi officials last week that if their country doesn't agree to a new agreement governing American forces in Iraq, it would lose $6.3 billion in aid for construction, security forces and economic activity and another $10 billion a year in foreign military sales." (7 of 6)

Wow! Huge endorsement for Barack, NASCAR's Junior Johnson endorses Obama! (7 of 6)

Many right wing political animals are changing their tune on McRage, none worse than Joe Lieberman. He could be off all his Senate committees after this election. No one to blame but yourself, Loserman. (7 of 6)
