Quick bytes - Out the door edition

By Libby

If you need fresh reading material while I'm out today, here's a few posts worth your time.

Atrios with his usual brevity, gives you Shorter candidates. My man Cernig, picks up the theme and expands the field.

Depressing but right on, Digby explains how things work.

And Avedon takes us on a rollercoaster from from despair to hope. As always, if that's not enough of our favorite American living in the UK for you, start at the top and just keep scrolling through the linky goodness of her Sideshow.

Oh, and before I forget, there's a new blog on the sidebar with hours worth of fun if you've never read Jon Swift, the master of satire. I've been meaning to get him on the blogroll for a long time and he should be on any well rounded regular read list. He's so good, the first time you read him, you're not sure he's really on your side.

One more campaign theme song, but I am conflicted about this one. You choose:

1. Beatles "You'e a real nowhere man ... "
2. The jingle from an Enzyte ad complete with smiles

What's enzyte? I don't watch TV.

It is a male enhancement advert on the telly that is about the tackiest, most tasteless thing in media. It features a Mitt Romney look alike sporting a Joker smile, flashing white teeth, and the backbground track is a melody of whistling, something from the 1940s.

One more score to settle. Here is John McCain's campaign theme:

Barbara Ann (Beachboys)
