Saturday night links

On 1/17/2001 the Onion gave us this classic. Damn, was that prescient.

Today, we get this, every sentence of which is priceless. Reading it makes me as hopeful as the 2001 article made me despair.

On a related note, this WaPo article talking about various Bush decisions that Team Obama is already planning to overturn. The 1st 100 Days are going to be something to behold, it looks like. The article specifcally refers to the federal ban on embryonic stem cell research, the ban on family planning groups from mentioning abortion, and the asinine prevention of California from regulating C02 emissions from cars.

The next four years are going to be rough in some ways, but at least the ship of state is no longer being piloted by Mr. 20% any longer....

And, for the hell of it, here's a fantastic video of Tool ripping it the fuck up in a little bitty club in '92, in front of what sounds like a couple dozen people who are definitely getting their money's worth.

There's a whole bunch of these videos from the same set, and they're all amazing. For being taken on a VHS camcorder, the sound is pretty awesome.

Do not adjust your TV set. That really was on Fox.

There will be more of these bizarre Palin stories. We know there is footage from the Couric interviews that hasn't seen the light of day yet....

I am too fucking hungover to type. But let me just say FUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUUCK YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH....I mean, let me just say that I thought McCain's concession speech was possibly the classiest, most dignified thing he did all year. He was truly gracious, and I thank him for that.

And Obama's speech was absolute fucking dynamite. As soon as I get done absorbing the rest of what happened, I'm going to watch that shit on YouTube again, cause that was the damnedest speech I've ever seen.

We've got a D governor of Missouri now (bye bye baby Blunt!), and it seems that every MO ballot measure passed.

In fact, Amendment 1 (English as official language) passed 86-14, Nixon beat Hulshof 58-40, and the Presidential race is currently at McCain 49.4-Obama 49.2. I would like to know more about all those ticket splitters, but I'm sure we'll hear more about it in the next couple weeks.

By the way, we just elected the black guy. Never thought I'd live to see it. HOT DAMN.
