why the Daily Show rules
Monday, September 8, 2008
Last weekend, I went up to Chumash both Friday and Sunday night. Did pretty well, though Sunday night I was up a lot more than I finished with. I went back again Friday, and would have Saturday if I wasn’t at a wedding… I think I’m hooked again. My most recent trip I actually felt like I was starting to play pretty well, again, too. Only got my money in bad once, and that was with set under set. He turned the case king, so the last 7 on the river woulda given us a jackpot. Sadly, it didn’t happen. Later in the night, we were again a one-outer away from a jackpot (though I wasn’t in the hand). Someone had KJs, flopped AT3 of clubs. All in against AT. An ace on the turn. No queen of clubs on the river. Shame. I will very likely head up there again this weekend. I’m actually enjoying it again, and not getting bored so quickly.
The Mets lost two of three to the Phillies, but by winning the third game and not getting swept, managed to hold on to a 2 game lead in the division. The next three weeks are gonna be stressful. Wagner is now out for the season, too. Hopefully, the Mets bullpen can continue their solid stretch the last couple of weeks. Evan went to his first Mets game yesterday, the day game of the doubleheader. Brad’s comment on the game: Evan lasted longer than Pedro! There are pictures if you follow that link…
Rock Band 2 comes out on Sunday. I’ll probably be getting the game right away, and then dealing with new instruments (if I want them) later. The old ones are decent enough, anyway. I’ll wait to see what happens with accessories (cymbals) on the drum kit first, I guess. Gears of War 2 comes out next month. I’m looking forward to that one. I haven’t played much other than Rock Band or a Guitar Hero game in a while. Amazon has a GoW2 Lancer that I might have a hard time not buying. I have absolutely zero use for it, but… It’s a Gears lancer! A gun, with a chainsaw. Seriously. How can I not get it?
I guess that’s it. I’ll leave you with… McCain getting BarackRoll’d:

The Vice President’s message is clear: The Republicans and Bush administration are the enemy we face in the war on terror. The terrorists were not in Iraq before their war.

More on Voting Machines
This is just ridiculous. Regardless of who should win or lose, people should be able to vote without worrying about whether or not their vote will count, or even be recorded. These 18,000 votes were, I believe, on touchscreens, with no paper trail.
Also, crap like this should be grounds for prison time: http://www.tpmmuckraker.com/archives/001974.php.

When Squirrels Attack
Look who’s complaining about the voting machines now…
This one’s not a GOP complaint (yet), but another reason everyone should agree that the voting machines need to be fixed: No e-voting backup required in Virginia. Long story short, most of Virginia has no paper trail. For a “recount,” the machines will just spit out the same numbers they did the first time.
Seriously, this needs to stop. Ignoring all the security and hacking issues, the first things that need to be done are fix the user interface, and get paper trails. As that post says, everyone can use an ATM. It should be just as easy, if not easier to use a voting machine.
Of course, equally important, we need to take action against the rogue squirrels.
Montana will have to wait until tomorrow.
I’m confident Webb took Virginia, leading by almost 8000 votes with only 6 precincts left to report. There will, of course, be a recount.
Checks and balances have returned to the United States Government.
