Quick thoughts -
I don't think I would vote for Gravel (he's implicitly told Libertarians the government is the answer a few times); Phillies voice will turn off voters; Jingozian speaks better, but amazingly looks dissheveled - seriously the man needs a haircut.
So I think the nominee will come from the pool of Ruwart, Kubby, Root and Barr.
I think I prefer Root.
10:29 - Gravel asserting positive liberties as critical (if you're hungry, you're not free). Another example of why I can't vote for him.
10:40 - DOMA is just a wee bit uncomfortable for Barr

Update on the Darth Mauling
Also of note from the article:
Question: How many Flying Spaghetti Monster adherents in the US do you think there are? I've at least seen FSM "fish" on cars, but never any Jedi paraphenalia.
In the 2001 United Kingdom census, 390,000 people - 0.7 per cent of the
population - listed Jedi as their religion.
They are not alone - 20,000 Canadians also listed their religion as
Jedi in 2001.

Payday Loans for Businesses
I instantly thought of the payday loan analogy (though said nothing along those lines) and found it interesting how successful products have a tendency of trying to seek out new markets.
1. Unannounced visits are always somewhat embarrassing as I'm not much of one for appearances when I'm working at my office. (think ratty t-shirt, even rattier jeans, and a 2-3 day beard) It saves me a little time every day, and I can get away with it because all of my customers are out-of-town.

Obama's secret imperialistic plans
More than likely, he was just tired and meant to say 47 states. But I think this is the funniest campaign moment since the Huck-Chuck facts.
1) I just found out that Chuck is in town tomorrow. (Liberty commencement speaker)
2) The jokes write themselves:
See, Obama, this is why you wear the flag on your lapel. If you're on the stump and forget how many states there are, just look down and count the stars.
No, there's not a unique flavor of ketchup for every state.
It turns out that it's not dead people voting that explains Cook county.
That's ok, Texas is really big. We can count it a few times.
After his most recent gaffe, Obama announced the newest member of his campaign - the Count.
Well Obama did say he was the candidate of change.

Free Comic Book Day
I missed out on cone day (there's not a B&J in Lynchburg and even the Blacksburg store wasn't participating this year).
