The McCain and Obama campaigns are busy beating the bushes in battleground states in a mad rush to convince undecided voters to select them at the ballot box.
My question is: Who the hell are these people? Seriously, you’re undecided in what is probably the most polarized election ever in America? The lines have never been clearer. The Democrats and Republicans have never been further apart. And you’re “undecided.” Oh, I just don’t know who to vote for… Seriously?
Allow me to cut through the BS for you: If you think the last eight years have been just peachy, vote for McCain; If you think the last eight years have been a spiral into insanity, vote for Obama.
Here’s a hint to help you make up your mind about the last eight years: Read a freaking newspaper.
Normally, I think it’s great to evaluate the candidates individually instead of just voting the party line. Good for you. But this election is different. This election has to be a rolled-up newspaper smacking the Republicans on their butts saying, “NO! Bad fundie! Baaaad fundie! No government for you! Look what you did to the country!”
Anything less is too profoundly depressing to even contemplate.

Another book roundup, including some stellar athletes and soldiers, what might be the most jaded, soul-weary protagonist ever, and some grimdark fantasy.
The Internet is getting creepy, and Nic is breaking out his tinfoil hat after newspaper paywalls push him over the edge.
Nic is tired of tech sites obsessing over Apple’s financials and business strategy. So very tired.
Nic reads a book about the processed food industry and is incensed.
Computers are complicated. This brings out the irrational in people.
Nic proposes the loan word Rechthaberei be incorporated into American English.
The Core Dump is back! Books were read during the hiatus. Includes The Coldest Winter, Oh, Myyy!, Tough Sh*t, The Revolution Was Televised, The Rook, Mr. Penumbra’s 24 Hour Bookstore, Gun Machine, Fortress Frontier, Standing in Another Man’s Grave, and The Memory of Light.
This site will return in February.
From a true patriot to a world-weary detective, a dead god, and a civilization about to sublime from the galaxy, this book roundup spans the gamut. Includes Where Men Win Glory, Wild, Inside the Box, The Black Box, Three Parts Dead, Red Country, and The Hydrogen Sonata.
Springsteen gives a concert in Phoenix. It’s fantastic.
