The second billion-dollar quarterly loss, a stock price that has fallen from more than $44 a share less than a year ago to Tuesday's close of $10.66 a share, and a cut in the quarterly common-stock dividend from 56 cents a share to a penny, put many in the crowd in a foul mood.

I knew WaMu shouldn't have put this guy in charge. Free checks for life?! No ATM fees!? You can't run a business that way!!

I didn't realize that Mrs. Obama was so hot.

I'm excited about the debate tonight. I like what Barack does to my humours. And I'm feeling extra anti-Hillary today! I think I'll not vote for her because she's a woman!

Good morning, Slog.

Will there be a live-Slogging?

Yes, there will be live-Slogging. See you then.

The debate will be tape-delayed and airs at 8 p.m. Pacific.

I will be awake at 11pm and ready to be a-quipping. I'm like Fnarf only funny half the time and I never actually say anything useful!

Just out of curiosity, when did Colbert start breaking character?

In the past two months, the percentage of Democrats calling the contest "mostly negative" has increased 14 points, to 41 percent. While a quarter of Democrats who see the campaign as generally negative blame both sides, more than three times as many blame Clinton's team as Obama's.
When asked how superdelegates should decide which candidate to support, nearly half of Democrats said they should follow the overall popular vote, while just one in eight said the number of delegates won in primaries and caucuses should be the deciding factor. Nearly four in 10 said superdelegates should choose the candidate they think is the best.

Second paragraph of #9 should have been a blockquote.

#7 he has done it when he's had guests on that he actually wants to hear from.

I'm with atown, my understanding is that it's tape delayed to end up in primetime so we'll see it at 8pm on KOMO. TiVo has my back on this.

Looked like she had a stomach ache or had to pee the entire time.

Posted by raindrop | April 16, 2008 10:56 AM

She's a knockout. I vote for her for first lady regardless of who wins.

Posted by Gurldoggie | April 16, 2008 11:02 AM

Ohhh, she's on track to be the hottest first lady in the history of these fine United States.

#14: Not me. Cindy McCain is a stunning knockout and runs circles around Michelle. Beautifully poised and gracious, Cindy be a delightful First Lady to grace the Executive Mansion and continue the tradition of high decorum and dignity of by Pat, Betty, Nancy, Barbara, and Laura.

Why am I not surprised that you prefer first ladies who are demur and act like mannequins, well, except for when they're hitting the bottle or popping pills.

Posted by keshmeshi | April 16, 2008 1:29 PM

About time we had a hot first lady ... and no, Cindy isn't.
