Condolences to Senator Barack Obama and his family on the loss of his grandmother, Madelyn Dunham.

Okay, down to business. If you're an American citizen, get the frack out there and vote. Perhaps something you don't support will end up passing, but not voting isn't the way to make your voice heard.

If you don't vote, don't complain.

Apparently, Sarah Palin 'releasing her medical records' consists of a note from her doctor.

McCain's last-minute speechifying includes the line, "The Mac is Back!"

From where? And is "The Mac" different than "The Maverick"?

There's a car commercial that features a cover of David Bowie's 'Space Oddity' ("This is Ground Control to Major Tom ..."), showing how nifty and super-techie the car's interior is.

Unfortunately, the ad fails, because I don't remember the name of the car, just the horrible cover of the song.

And if you're really trying to sell a car? Pick a different song than one about a guy whose spacecraft malfunctions and ends with him dying far away from home.

my favorite train-wreck of a car commercial? Toyota's local no-interest sales extravaganza, scored by a nameless cover band's take on The Fixx's "Saved By Zero." sounds like that should have been Bush's theme for the past eight years.
