Does BO want to go there?

In some universe, it's probably hilarious that Obama has to truncate Palin's record in order to set up a straw-man comparison on experience.

Sayeth The One:
"My understanding is that Gov. Palin’s town, Wassilla, has I think 50 employees. We've got 2500 in this campaign. I think their budget is maybe 12 million dollars a year – we have a budget of about three times that just for the month."

Indeed. But right now she's the Governor of a state with an $11.2 billion budget and 15 thousand employees.

Unrelated, but we've got Matt, Joe, Mike, and Samay regularly commenting on this blog. Did Veej miss the announcement or something?

I think Veej is aware, but I can't recall him commenting. Mike has been a reader for a while, and Samay just found out a little while ago.

Veej blogs too... (sometimes)

Yeah, I noticed Samay suddenly showed up a couple months back. But was Matt lurking for a while? I didn't see any comments from him until a week ago or thereabouts...

No, I spoke to Matt on the phone about it a few days ago and he promptly discovered the blog before I could even give him the url.
