Some things you just can't make up

I'm glad some volunteer thought that Hillary would look like a "woman of the people" if she had her own customized apron, but the slogans certainly make for a target rich environment,

Hillary the other white meat
and the Freepers couldn't pass it up:

Hillary the pig
(Click on either to supersize Her Heinous.)

Dang, that's scary!

Hillary close up
The bad news for Hillary is that the camera doesn't love her. The good news is that she doesn't need a mask for Halloween.

Remember Al Gore before you buy any product from Apple

Apple brown noses Al Gore

Al Gore's primary job on Apple's board of directors (besides picking up his paycheck) seems to be to provide an aura of authenticity to the dubious report absolving Steve Jobs in the stock options backdating scandal. I guess that must have been a valuable service since Steve Jobs is boosting Big Weird Al for president and after the Goron was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize last week under other dubious circumstances, Apple decided to devote their home page for a couple of days to a little brown nosing (see above).

I know some folks that were interested in the Apple iPhone before it launched, but dropped it like a hot potato when they found out about Al's involvement in Apple. It may be hard to do the same if you are a longtime Macintosh user, but there's no excuse for buying any of Apple's consumer electronics gadgets like the iPod or iPhone because there are plenty of alternatives. Do some of the other manufacturers do silly stuff on behalf of Mother Gaia? Sure, but you have to pick off the fattest targets which are certainly Big Weird Al and Apple.
