Moose-lovers against Palin

No, I don't like Republican presidential nominee John McCain's new running mate, Alaska governor (and proud moose-hunting mama of five) Sarah Palin. Icky poo. More about which in due course.

But in the meantime, lots of people are writing really good stuff. I offer some links for your perusal:

Good Lord, since when is skinning a mousse a critical skill for politics. We're regressed to the 50s. The 1650s.
