Gore FTW - #1 Feels Better than #3

So, old Al's not looking so crazy anymore, huh? Daily Kos noticed that I had beaten out the heel nippers handily in a poll out of Detroit.

Never have I said so much so loudly as I have by saying nothing at all. I love it when a plan comes together.

You other candidates feel free to keep knocking yourselves out on the campaign trail. It's certainly fun to watch. With that, I'll reference the post that started this whole thing.

Time's almost up. Stay tuned.

Videoblogs? Not Anymore - Thanks, iMovie '08

So I was all set to start a new Inconvenient Truth series of video podcasts. Been telling everyone I know how awesome it would be. Imagine my surprise when I go to edit the first episode in the new iMovie and I am presented with what appears to be Windows Movie Maker's pretty but dumb third cousin.

Although I sit on the board at Apple, they don't often listen to me about anything (see: lack of solar-powered iPhone). If they had showed iMovie '08 to me prior to its release I would have had some friends from the DEA raid Infinite Loop looking for psychotropic drugs. Multiple clicks in areas that used to require a single click? Dialog boxes? I can't import my '06 projects? WTF? Did we hire J. Allard as a "coolness" consultant or something? How is this an Apple product?

Oh well, at least my stock will go up. You guys would have like the podcast though. Now you'll never be able to experience its greatness. You wouldn't have believed the surprise guest I had who said they would only "come out" as a greenie if they could do it on my show. Such is the iLife I suppose.

Third Place Feels Just Fine

So some poll shows that I am in third place support-wise on the Democrat side. By simply doing nothing I have pulled ahead of Edwards. Seems my strategy is paying off. I haven't been in the limelight to make any stupid mistakes, I haven't spent any money, and I didn't have to participate in that ridiculous YouTube debate.

I think I like Politics 2.0.

My Sendoff to Karl

So, the big man steps down. I cannot think of a happier time in recent memory. It inspires the creative side of me that can only be expressed in haiku. Here's to you, evil genius:

Heard the news today
Even evil needs some rest
The sun shines again

Don't let the door hit you on the way out, or do. I don't care. As long as you actually leave.

On the other hand, you looking for work? An evil genius might be good to have on staff I suppose.

I'm So Cancelling My Subscription

Apparently the bloggers over at New York Magazine's Daily Intelligencer are taking a break from their usual snobbery to weigh in on the outing of my former friend. Not content to simply cover that story, their downward gaze lands on yours truly as well. I think someone needs to turn off the Vermouth tap over there so these guys can get back to kissing Don Imus' ass. That's what they do over there now right?

Here's the money quote:

"In a disturbing development, fakealgore.blogspot.com is already active."

Anyway, welcome, you gin-soaked New York Magazine readers. Everyone is welcome.
