Politics

Ouch...

John Sidney McCain III and George Walker Bush both represent the third generation of American dynasties. Both were born into positions of privilege against which they rebelled into mediocrity. Both developed an uncanny social intelligence that allowed them to skate by with a minimum of mental exertion. Both struggled with booze and loutish behavior. At each step, with the aid of their fathers' powerful friends, both failed upward.

In one vital respect, however, the comparison is deeply unfair to the current president: George W. Bush was a much better pilot.

Crappiest crap ever?

Sent to Woot...

Hi! My Bag of Crap package just arrived, containing a Curious George toiletry bag (COOL!) and a Vivitar box with a manual, CD, wriststrap, power cord, USB cable, video cable, and even a little Vivitar case. But no camera. If you happen to find a Vivitar ViviCam 8300s (as identified on the manual and CD) floating around the warehouse, please scold it for escaping and send it along! Thanks. :-)
