Humility And Politeness Will Not Keep Us Safe: King of the Crusty Cranks Pat Buchanan chides President Obama for his international genuflecting. Being nice won't defeat evil evilness, pal. [unionleader.com]
From Kabul, With Existential Ennui: Foreign correspondent and blogger Phil Zabriskie reports from the modern paradise that is Afghanistan's besieged capitol. It seems the city is a surreal clusterhump of paranoia, distrust, and simmering violence. So, there's that. [trueslant.com]
Global Economy Might Catch The Pig Sniffles: The good news, claims this editorial from Market Watch, is that global health care institutions are reacting flawlessly to the maybe overblown, probably apocalyptic swine flu outbreak. The bad news is it might screw the economy even more. [marketwatch.com]
Going Ga-Ga For Gridiron Girls: What started as a cheeky advertisement is blowing up into something that columnist Jim Moore likes, very much. A little too much? Naw. Cross your fingers, and pray that a lingerie football team comes to your city very soon. [seattlepi.com]

Another election, another Florida result that is too close to call. At least at this point. The state seems to be setting the stage for another recount, just in case anyone's up for one. They've already arranged for…
* An incredibly tight vote count.
* A scare campaign targetted at elderly Jews.
* A dirty tricks campaign targetted at first-time voters.
* A suicidal squirrel impeding early voting.
But wouldn't you know it, the rest of the country isn't playing along. Pennsylvania has already gone for Barack Obama and voting is proceding in an orderly fashion from Maine to Kentucky to Missouri.
And Pat Buchanan's name isn't on the ballot.

You know what? When all is said and done, no matter who wins this election tonight, I still have to be me in the morning.
That's not change I can believe in.
