Clinton's Lead Erodes, Obama Pulls More Edwards... →
On the Democratic side, Clinton leads Obama 43 percent to 34 percent, with John Edwards - who is expected to drop out today – at 14 percent. Clinton’s lead is down 17 points since Jan. 24. Again, if past history provides any clue, polling during the campaign in some states indicated that Obama was the second choice of many Edwards supporters.

Michael Weiner-Savage Losing Advertisers Over Hate... →
The Weiner Man is just one in a huge gaggle of right wing nut jobs on the radio, but his brand of hate stands alone. The poor guy was canned last year by his management agency for attacking Melissa Etheridge and lesbians and now the schmuck is finally being dumped by some of his biggest sponsors.

Widespread Cheating & Vote Suppression by Clinton... →
There is widespread cheating and voter suppression going on all over Clark County—and it’s obviously coming in from the top down. Whether it made enough of a difference to swing the election is another question—but there is no question that Hillary was running a campaign in which all of her surrogates were to cheat in every way possible.

DIY Cartoon Strips Made Social →
Toonlet is a new site where you can create your own cartoon strips with customized characters and leave cartoons as comments in response to other peoples’ strips. It’s fun, fast and easy. Kids will like it and I do too. Few sites on the web where you can create your own comic strips but few of them let you build your own characters. Way cool.
@mconnor: yeah, he’s a chick magnet, that’s certainly a plus
