gusasleep1There is a lot going on out there and we seem to have no leadership. Perhaps with all of the damage that the Bushies have done over the past eight years it is just as well that we are leaderless. 21, count ’em – 21 days to go. Did you ever think it would happen?

–  According to Politico.com these are the Top 10 political upsets of 2008.
Mike Huckabee (Iowa Republican caucus).
Hillary Clinton (New Hampshire Democratic primary)
John McCain (South Carolina Republican primary)
Bill Foster vs. Jim Oberweis (Illinois 14th District)
Tom Perriello vs. Rep. Virgil Goode (Virginia 5th District)
Rep. Don Young vs. Ethan Berkowitz (Alaska at Large) who met with defeat.
Kay Hagan vs. Sen. Elizabeth Dole (North Carolina Senate)

Gov. Ed Rendell (D-Pa.)
Carly Fiorina
Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean
Sen. Ted Stevens (R-Alaska)
When Sen. Robert C. Byrd (D-W.Va.)
Vice President-elect Joe Biden
Vice President Dick Cheney
Alan Colmes
Sen. Chuck Hagel (R-Neb.)
Rep. William Jefferson (D-La.)
Rep. Christopher Shays (R-Conn.)

–  For those that want more about the Middle East, here is Richard Engel explaining more with Rachel:

–  I am sure you have seen this teary commercial. Sarah McLachlan’s SPCA Commercial (this is the newer version) helped raise over $30 million. “Sarah made it possible to do in two minutes what took 30 minutes before,” said Jo Sullivan, a communications vice-president with the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) How about sending this video over to the Obama household.
