In this as in all else, McCain is showing his age. "Reaching out to conservative Christians" is a tired strategy from last decade, not this one. The right-wing Christian alliance has crumbled into dust, with old firebrands like Pat Robertson and James Dobson mostly ignored. Evangelical groups are abandoning not only the Republican Party in droves, but the very social-conservative platforms they've been thumping. The new buzzwords in evangelical circles are "global warming" and "global poverty". They're not voting for McCain. Obama actually has a chance to garner a majority of evangelical christian votes in November, if McCain lives that long.

I think the mayors were fairly outspoken about the SCOTUS decision-- especially Richard Daley, who sort of flew off the handle in that endearing Daley-esque fashion.
Did you want them to start a riot or something?
I know there are tons of stories in this entry, but the story about Slavedriver Bitchlady (hat tip to friend for the name) is a must-read for her defense lawyer's quotes alone.
In far more tragic news, Matt Damon has gotten reeeaaaallllly fat:
And no, it's not prosthetics--he's all method.
And yes, those are his man bewbs.
I don't know. It looked like the standard "My client didn't do it, but if she did do it, it totally wasn't her fault."
it's not spring & half the vegetables in your recipe aren't even in season anymore.
