Go Away for the Weekend and All Hell Breaks Loose

I was off the grid, in the Sierras this weekend (including being evacuated because of a growing forest fire in the Hope Valley) and come home to find:

1. That the national media is now catching up to where bloggers were on Friday night with regard to the "Bridge to Nowhere" lies from Sarah Palin (she was before it before she was against, and was against it for purely political purposes).

2. All hell is breaking loose on this nomination.
