  • “The corruption of the best is the worst”. But in cognitive terms, when the smartest are stunned stuhpud, that’s a vy vy bad thing. #borg #
  • Neighbors pitch in to help a family whose house burned to the ground. A little girl gives her very favorite doll. So, what’s “human nature”? #
  • @12stepbuddhist “Indivisibility of samsara and nirvana” is part of my daily lineage supplication. :-) Prasangika? Madyamika? Shen.tong? #
  • @12stepbuddhist heh … I think. Perhaps I misunderstand. HeyHo, I’ll read that as ironic humour. #
  • @ChrisLaBossiere Wondered the same thing when @CPAC tweeted. Me thinks not. PBS for me. BTW: better lemon.tea+rum than the alternative. ;-) #
  • /me is tuned to Detroit PBS #debate08 #current #
  • Got a kick in the <s>chin</s>wallet today. Needed props. Found McLuhan > http://soup.groundplane.org < Thank you principled practitioners. #
  • Obama sounds like he’s working from Pierre E. Trudeau’s speech spring of ’75 … living too high off the hog. #
  • Nooooooooooo gas from food-stocks a**hat! #
  • @judell Now, can I disagree? ;) *Mental picture of single tree on tiny island near Carmel.* But ahh, those ancient hills, and the Atlantic! #
  • @chrislabossiere With a head cold? *tsk-ktsk& Sad use of fine liqueur … fine time to break out horse linament. Or homebrew. ;-P #
  • RT @al3x: “… if the candidates got pinched every time they employed a logical fallacy.” google my “participatory deliberation”. Discourse! #
  • Pretty nimble, Obama. Now, when the moment arises yet.again don’t shy from rhetorical flourish. “Dare to be great!” (a kid in Doonesbury) #
  • If someone does something more than, say, 90% … is it a “lie” to say 100%? Poor rhetoric, “all the time” is safer. But _lie_? #
  • McCain has announced: Americans don’t give a damn about truth. Word games trump logic and you know it. Eat shit, Obama. #
  • “Somebody yelled something at a rally” … yaa, McCain’s VP candidate. US citizens want that dog as PoTUS? #
  • Seems to me O’ has lead a sheltered life. He ain’t polite … he’s wet behind the ears. Not restrained; naive. #
  • !tip #1: don’t bring up the same ace and play it lamely time after time after time. Just shows you know the rules but not how to play. #
  • Rolling the Ayers trash into the Acorn issue: rhetorically inept. Putin would eat him as an after lunch snack. #
  • If he had played “Ayers” with gusto he could now segue to Acorn. Opportunity lost. *Obama, join a debate club!* #
  • Occam’s Razor: they’re both puppets to the #oligarchs so better than “brain damaged” is entirely surplus to requirement. #
  • Hey, education! College, even … wow, what a concept! Geez, I’m busting a gut to vote for him! *Not* #
  • @ChrisSaad @marshallk For sure @current is slick but methinks @cspan has the muscle for post-hoc analysis > http://debatehub.c-span.org < #
  • Geeebus. Duck “4 years”, answer 10 yrs, then say it’s the most important issue. Q: can Obama bunt? #
  • @ChrisSaad “Stream” versus after the fact … collation and trending. I don’t think @current will be doing anything like that. @cspan might #
  • If Uncle Sam truly cared about small business he would look / see / notice that small businesses cannot afford employee health plans. #
  • ReTw @alexdc: Factcheck thread on Summize debunks a lot of stuff in real-time http://tinyurl.com/3qxpbo < #
  • Do full life-cycle cost analysis: poverty / homelessness / no health insurance, all those hurt GDP. Appetite for punishment, is all. #
  • Is McCain a shit-head? or just dishonest? Yaaa right, every tradesman wants the headache of front office. Arrogant navy twit. #
  • A thot: McCain hasn’t clue 1 of entrepreneurship. Just a maverick. Nothing more. Loose cannon w/bales of money. #
  • Once in a while I see the John McCain I admire[d]. Kinda reminds me of that awful day Powell addressed UN Security. #borg #oligarchs #
  • There, you want a gauntlet? McCain and Palin will read their election as mandate to “change the culture of America”. #borg #fundamentalists #
  • Roe Wade displace Joe Plumber from #1 in TweetDeck trending topics. Let’s all tweet “electric banana”! #
  • Dewwwwwwd you’re talking about my cohort. They sold out the 60s. They drove the sub-prime market. You deluded? #borg #matrix #
  • “Let’s have competition as foundational to schools so kidz can thrive in the globalized Web2.0 world where collaboration is key.” #idiot #
  • O’ reminded me of bobble-head dolls. Never liked them. Something un-nerving / un-sober / in-sane about that continuous twitch. #
  • ReTw @TheFix: Flag pin count: Obama 1, McCain 0 [An eye for the obvious. +25] #
  • #cohort #yuppies If ever you want to see social pathology writ large, get someone from my age group out of their comfort zone. #freakout #
  • NB: Read Piaget on young children. By the time they’re 7 they’re pretty much assimilated. (Or not.) Autism? How’bout psychopaths?! #
  • “American needs a new direction.” Overturn RoeVWade / vouchers for charter schools … a new culture. *Gadzooks!* #
  • Head movement shows authenticity. O’ is still t.h.e man … #ThatOne. #
  • ReTw @dankeldsen: Which candidate is going to give me vouchers to take my education money and apply it where it seems best? #
  • ReTw @ChrisLaBossiere: interestingly, there has been almost no discussion on economic regulation reform #
  • @acarvin “autism is on the rise” … what I read “back when” is that “latch key kids” syndrome is optimal situation for psychopathy. #
  • 3 Gig RAM and Firefox bogs down. Hardly better than w/128Meg on a 300MHz Win98SE box. #Vista sucks the big one. #
  • @ChrisSaad http://debatehub.c-span.org/ 473,634 tweets in their archive. (No follow; cannot DM. So sad.) #
  • I totally forgot about @plodt … http://www.plodt.com/TwitterUserName #
  • New from @NYTimes? “Election 2008: Check Point Series” > http://snurl.com/4ek1y < #
  • Q: [short snapper; bonus points for clehvur] We know “slash-dotted”, yes? What about http://JoeThePlumber.com? Twitter-pated? #
  • @deborah909 Joe’s site shows nothing of spoof, so I’d guess that yaa, buddy just became a national star. (Hope his host sympathizes!!) #
  • FriendFeed/realtime … why am I seeing people who I have not a) friended there or b) followed in Twitter. *Switches back to FF ignore* #
  • Yet again #Vista fails me. 3Gig RAM, dual core Dell. 2 FFs w/multiple instances. TWhirl and TWDeck => no audio Seesmic. M$ crap. #
  • Rebooted #Vista … now have audio with Seesmic. (Discussion w/Chris Cilliza @the fix > http://snurl.com/4el4p <) #
  • @unorder In my experience Semantic Web and Concept Mapping have been the 2 biggies. I’m waiting for cog-psych to get on. Oh, PLoS … alt. #
  • @/thefix Hi – I think you would have done Seesmic and yourself a service by making your video post substantial. Just sayin’. ^5 #
  • Mark Halperin agrees with me that McCain was at his best. ;-P #
  • @pkedrosky Am I wrong in remembering “Honesty is the last refuge of the villain”? Sadly, the “dystopic” view is ironic but lucid. ^5 #
  • ReTw @pkedrosky: Playing By the Rules is For Saps: A dystopic comment from my friend > http://tinyurl.com/4xvye3 < #
  • Bottom line: will good hard-working folk choke in the moment when it comes to vote for a man of color to be in the Oval Office? #
  • @ChrisLaBossiere I worked “then you’ll like living in Canada or England” into my Seesmic slab. FWIW #
  • @markdavidson Not _anyone_?! Shirley, you jest. There’s no racism? C’mon … you gotta be kidding. #
  • @ChrisLaBossiere Seesmic i.e. @TheFix (WashingtonPost) > http://snurl.com/453on < and “slab” = my blurt. #
  • @mcwflint google might pay off big-time. I have vague memory of GirlScouts twitter group. #
  • @ChrisLaBossiere Sorry, booted that. Seesmic.com / @TheFix WashingtonPost > http://snurl.com/4el4p < #
  • @baratunde Wow … that was live … but we didn’t know. I’d say they punted there. #
  • @baratunde See http://therecord.barackobama.com/?p=2760 … someone there should learn HTML for links. *head/desk* #
  • @markdavidson Well, what can I make of that? *Your cue; aaand scene!* I hope you’re right. But there must be some. And majority that … #
  • Jon Stewart … good to the last drop. And with that, _a demain_. #
  • Go to imedix.com … you have 1 message waiting! Yaaaa, right. *pfffft!* #
  • @Julian101 Sorry, “eh?” doesn’t give me much to respond to. #
  • #Vista M$ is sooo rude! With update loading background, I started a longish reply to email *WhamBamSlam!* Vista closes all apps & reboots. #
  • Disappointing … 5 minutes into my first Muffin session “Play” stops working. Who to blame, FF? Muffin? or (yet again) #Vista? 0_o #
  • @Stammy A nice thing about formal design docs and requirement specs is you can sit down and present wish-list w/items checked off. #
  • @Documentally I pik a qik video at random and get movie + sound. I click yours I get a still picture with a Pause button. But no play. #
  • @Documentally Ok, this one worked. I think #Vista is f’n with my head. #
  • *poof* One less VC git on my Following list. #
  • @adamostrow Betcha doughnut it’s a loose connector. (Occam’s Razor at work.) #
  • @Mickeleh Last Colombian rep I talked to said civic leaders were being literally decimated. Mind, that was a while ago. *sigh* #
  • RT @Mickeleh: Video: Obama mentions union organizers targeted for murder in Colombia, McCain rolls his eyes. http://snurl.com/4f8ar #

  • #BradleyEffect One guy (crypto-racist?) sez no prob voting for a black man, then cites biblical injunciton against mixed race. #cracker #

  • “Candidates must make tough decisions: McCain, walking around the desk to shake hands, mixed up which way to go” > http://snurl.com/4fcha < #
  • @nazgul OMG I totally didn’t realize that was the untouched original! Poor bugger … the mind-melt musta warped some circuit boards. #
  • p.s. guys, c’mon, you can’t reply to hours old tweets with such as “eh?” and “don’t think so”. All together now, let’s spell asynchronous. #

  • @mkapor [No follow => no DM. So sad.] Didn’t you intend to include http:// so we could just click? #
  • Not agile: I’ve just logged into Ning for what seems the 18,000th time. Sloppy-dumb and contemptuous iz whott. #
  • @hubertmichaux When world events moved me to trash-can my military career I read into ideology. Came to believe politics <=> religion. #
