Odds and ends

John McCain says he has a secret plan to capture Osama bin Laden. Shades of Richard Nixon...

The Oxford Research Group argues that the real national security threat related to global warming will be internal, as in anti-corporate and anti-government eco-terrorism.

Ted Kennedy endorses Obama. It doesn't bode well for change. On the other hand, seeing three Kennedys on the stump for Obama, so soon before the Massachusetts primary, leads me to wonder if this is an effort by one "dynasty" (Kennedy) to prevent the rise of another (Clinton). I can't fault them for that.

Venezuelans are taking advantage of foreign exchange controls (and the inevitable black market) to make money out of short trips abroad. Does anyone in that government understand basic economics?

Calls continue for the impeachment of Bush and Cheney. Sounds good to me. On the other hand, I think every president of the past 30 years has been deserving of impeachment. I won't hold my breath waiting for it.

As for the State of the Union address: Zzzzzzzzzz...

Clinton and Bush dynasties? We need to bring back the Adams dynasty. Or start the Paul dynasty.
