Welcome Back Modern, Wither BI?

While it would appear that Modern has returned to BSB , it seems that Tim Russo's Blogger Interrupted has been offline since this morning. The Google cache version of BI doesn't show any farewell message or anything. Hmm. Interesting...

Seriously, Does Arlen Specter WANT A Primary Opponent?

Because saying shit like this will get him one, pronto. From Political Wire:
In an interview with the New York Times Magazine, Sen. Arlen Specter (D-PA) said he hopes Norm Coleman (R) prevails in his Senate recount court fight against Al Franken (D) in Minnesota.

Said Specter: "There's still time for the Minnesota courts to do justice and declare Norm Coleman the winner."

Carrie Prejean: First a Boob Job, Now Naked Pics Too.

The controversy surrounding the Religious Right's newest poster child against gay marriage just continues to mount. First, Miss California Carrie Prejean was asked about her views on gay marriage by openly gay judge Perez Hilton. Her answer:
“I think it’s great that Americans are able to choose one or the other. We live in a land where you can choose same-sex marriage or opposite marriage,” Prejean said. “And you know what? I think in my country, in my family, I think that I believe that a marriage should be between a man and a woman. No offense to anybody out there, but that’s how I was raised.”
Prejean ended up finishing 2nd to Miss North Carolina. On his blog the next day, Hilton used a vulgarity to describe Prejean and suggested her repsonse may have cost her the crown. This was enough to make Prejean the religious right's new champion against the so-called "gay agenda."

But that's when the problems started. First of all, we found out that she had breast implants paid for by the paegent. That was the first chink in the armor. Now, we're finding out that there are nearly nude photos of her floating around on the Internet.
Hey Religious Right, once again, you've demonstrated why that old adage suggesting that he who is without sin should cast the first stone, means that you all should make yourselves a nice, steaming cup of STFU, and allow others to live their lives as they wish.

Akron Recall Heating Up

I dunno what Pho has been up to, but a story in today's Beacon Journal points to increasing evidence of the raging fire that the potential recall of Akron Mayor Don Plusquellic has become. 

Warner Mendenhall, the leader of the recall effort, has a $169,000 IRS lien for unpaid taxes against him, and in the past had a $1,500 lien for unpaid child support against him, which was satisfied in 2006. When the anti-recall Citizens for Akron decided to point that out to Akron residents in a mail piece by calling him a "tax cheat" and a "deadbeat dad" , Mendenhall took offense and filed a complaint with the OEC.

Rather than filing against Citizens for Akron with the OEC, Mendenhall would do better to explain why this recall effort is not the personal vendetta that it is rumored to be.
