What a summer!!  A dramatic, historic presidential primary, followed by the the biggest olympics blitz ever.  

Perhaps the most pageantry-filled Democratic convention in a century (or EVER). All kinds of anniversaries (women’s suffrage, MLK’s march on Washington, Hurricane Katrina, Lincoln turns 200, LBJ turns 100. . .  many others noted by the media (you know how they love “significance”  — I once heard one guy exclaim in September “it’s the coldest it’s been since MAY!!!”  — never mind that it’s been summer since May).

But this latest takes the cake!  The arch-conservative, “family values” VP candidate Sarah Palin’s teenage daughter is pregnant.


I’m sorry, I know I’m not supposed to find that funny.
