Project Part One

So here's part one of a year-long project. Well, not really. I haven't exactly been working on it non-stop. It turned into a "project to do in my spare time" endeavor and there hasn't been a whole lot of spare time this past year.

I basically just went and downloaded all of the emails from the Todd/MSNBC email dump, the one where the media termed the First Dude the "shadow governor." Then I read all of them. Then I went back and separated them out into different categories and broke them down from there.

Here's the most boring category: "Flight Information." It's basically just emails detailing (you guessed it) flight information for Todd and others. Other emails had flight info in them, but these are pretty much just strictly flight info (heh, like I said only other dorks like me will care about this stuff). You can download it here. The folder includes the emails in the category and a document breaking them down.

BTW, Erika Fagerstrom was kind of like the house manager for the Governor's mansion in Juneau. You can see her here.

Time Machine - December 1, 2006

This is a cool press conference from before Palin was sworn in as Governor. She was announcing a round of cabinet appointments.

Chief of Staff – Mike Tibbles

Director of Legislative Affairs – John Bitney

Director of Communications – Meg Stapleton

Commissioner of Revenue – Pat Galvin

Commissioner of the Department of Military and Veterans Affairs – Major General Craig Campbell (reappointment)

I especially like what Craig Campbell had to say. Lots of laughs too. Wish I had video. Especially at the end where she's like, "Raise your hand if you're a Democrat." That Sarah Palin, she's a funny lady.

Fluffy Bunny Sweeps the Country

Now I wasn’t going to keep harping on this. At least not until crazy Ed goes away too. But when Glenn Beck began his show last night holding a fuzzy bunny and speaking fuzzy bunny thoughts, I wondered, “Could this be merely coincidence?”

I think not:

No! No, Glenn. Bad Glenn.

Okay, good Glenn. That's more like it.

Glenn's bunny isn't quite as fluffy as what I had in mind. That must be why his thoughts went awry toward the end. Not fluffy enough.

I was thinking more like...

Or, if you prefer (more in keeping with the theme), Barbaric Bunny:

Or Ninja Bunny:

Biiiiiig Bunny:

The Bunny Revolution continues to sweep the country. Think like the Bunny. Be the Bunny. Preferably a Fluffy Bunny.

(Don't worry, we shall resume our regularly scheduled programming shortly...)
