Furries In The Media

Mutiny.in » Shaheed Bhagat Singh - The Atheist Revolutionary
I genuinely believe that in two hundred years from now, this period will be considered
the strangest time in human history. In the days when people and the clergy believed
that the sun moved round the earth, they were ignorant but not crazy. They really
believed it. But a man who might work in NASA or walk on the moon and then go to
church on a Sunday is schizophrenic. For an educated person living in the twentieth
century, faith and scientific reality are contradictory.

No Carville apology for Judas remark
Richardson told "Fox News Sunday" that he wouldn't
respond by getting "in the gutter like that."

"That's typical of many of the people around Senator Clinton," Richardson said.
"They think they have a sense of entitlement to the presidency."

PlayStation.Blog » Warhawk 1.4 Patch Hints
So while I can’t say too much, I can say that the team
is hard at work on developing some new game modes.

We have a lot of new designs at various phases of development
so I can’t say which ones will make the cut for the v 1.4 patch
just yet…but rest assure that the next patch *will* have new modes,
and of course, they will be free.

Carville Equates Richardson With Judas

Politics | McCarthyism comment rebuked by Obama, Clinton camps
After the governor's endorsement of Obama, Clinton adviser James Carville compared
Richardson to Judas. On Sunday, Richardson said: "I'm not going to get in the gutter
like that. And you know, that's typical of many of the people around Senator Clinton.
They think they have a sense of entitlement to the presidency."

Hillary self-destructs
The Hillary and Bill Clinton scorched-earth strategy of laying waste to Obama,
or his supporters like Bill Richardson, is going to backfire among those in the
only constituency who can put Hillary in the saddle. The super delegates.

"What I don't like about the ad is it's fear-mongering. I think it's a cheap

on Monday—an average of 23 points, which is more than double what she received in Ohio.

Obama regains ground in Texas caucuses
Clinton has the support of 241 superdelegates, and Obama 202. But more than 350 remain
uncommitted, a large enough bloc to swing the nomination should they band together.

Deadline for Clinton
Her only hope is that a solid majority of the nearly 800 superdelegates
support her over Obama. Party rules allow them to act independently,
but it's almost unfathomable that these political animals would not
ratify the results from primaries and caucuses.
