So ...

... y'all know about last night's debate: Romney was prepared, upbeat, and confident. In short, all the things that Obama was not. 

The most important point, IMHO, is that Romney finally got to be himself without government or media (but I repeat myself) editing what viewers get to see. It was also rather astounding to hear a candidate refer to the 10th Amendment ... I loved that bit.

Romney has swerved to the right - and it will be up to conservatives to watch him like a hawk, to make sure he stays there.

Alaska's congressional delegation has weighed in on the upcoming election, for whatever that's worth. Congressman Young (R-AK - we only have the one, you know) and Senator Murkowski (Rino-AK) endorsing Romney, and Senator Begich (D-AK) sounding only "lukewarm" in support of the incumbent.

It's hard for me to imagine how any thinking person could support the current president ... but then, as I read on-line the other day, you can't sway someone with facts and reason if their position wasn't based on facts and reason in the first place.

When all they have is "feels good" and "gimme gimme", there's nowhere left to go ... for them. It's a shame, really.

The local newspaper-cum-fishwrapper has made radical changes to its website, and it's actually an improvement. But they still pound the far-left drumbeat.  The paper's readership has dropped dramatically in the last few years (like every other newsprint product in the U.S.), and their advertising rates are the highest, among all printed media in town. Yet they continue to ride that liberal/enviro-nazi/anti-Palin/big government horse ... right into the ground.

What? It's not working?  Then do it again ... harder!

The weather has moderated here, with highs in the upper 40s to around 50 for the next few days ... or so AccuHunch guesses. It's raining this morning, but was already 47 when I left home.

Enough. Time for another cuppa & another spreadsheet. Cheers!

It was great to see someone like Romney prepared, confident, and standing his ground. Unlike Mr. Dreamy, lol......

Change is truly needed, we don't need another 4 years at a trillion dollars a year.

Life is to short and our children along with their children don't need this debt and B.S.

The news media just loves to beat a dead horse into the ground. I feel sorry for the Palin family/name.

Enjoy your coffee and don't work to hard on those spreadsheets.

Thanks, Sandy. The Palins are doing just fine, but continue to be vilified for breathing. The local paper can't even go 24 hours without printing something negative about them.
