Roundup for Monday 10/20/2008

It’s pretty screwed up that we don’t have good medical records for either of the presidential candidates. Especially since one of them is ancient and has repeated bouts with cancer. Even worse, neither VP candidate has released any medical records at all? What are Biden and Palin hiding? And Palin, where is your press conference?

Obama raised $150 million for his campaign in September. Jeeze. I guess that means the advertising industry should be doing well in these tough economic times.

Colin Powell endorsed Obama this weekend:

Unsurprisingly, rightwingers immediately said he did so because he’s black.

Obama, meanwhile, promised to use Powell as an advisor.

Despite all the momentum, the Boston Red Sox lost Game 7 of the ALCS to the Tampa Bay Rays last night. Ha!

By the way, can someone please tell me why everyone on Boston’s roster has an annoying nickname or annoying real name?

    not only that, there’s an annoyingly high # of names beginning with J:

    Jason Bay
    Jason Varitek
    Jacoby Ellsbury
    JD Drew
    Jed Lowrie
    Jon Lester
    Josh Beckett
    Jonathan Papelbon

    when Lowrie’s at SS and Beckett, Lester, or Papelbon are on the mound, it’s 55% of their lineup

    Glad to see you agree Ted 😉

    Ian is just bitter. First the Patriots, and now this.

    Luckily he has a Celtics championship to hang is hat on.
