Veep Links

Hopefully you don't mind me getting a bit political, but here are links to some stories that greeted me this morning in my Yahoo News:

Cindy McCain parts with Palin on abortion, sex ed

Few minorities on GOP podium

Palin has never ordered Alaska National Guard to do anything

Analysis: GOP contradicts self on Palin family
: If they're "off limits" why are you parading them in front of the cameras?

Attacks, praise stretch truth at GOP convention: Some of these are just "stretched truths" and some are outright lies, like what Huckabee said:

FORMER ARKANSAS GOV. MIKE HUCKABEE: Palin "got more votes running for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska than Joe Biden got running for president of the United States."

THE FACTS: A whopper. Palin got 616 votes in the 1996 mayor's election, and got 909 in her 1999 re-election race, for a total of 1,525. Biden dropped out of the race after the Iowa caucuses, but he still got 76,165 votes in 23 states and the District of Columbia where he was on the ballot during the 2008 presidential primaries.

In 1789, the governor of Australia granted land and some animals to James Ruse in an experiment to see how long it would take him to support himself. Within 15 months he had become self sufficient. The area is still known as Experiment Farm. This is my Experiment Farm to see how long it will take me to support myself by writing.
