LIBS LECTURE LOSERS
The New York Times reported that Barack Obama won.
That's a step up from not reporting news, ala John Edwards scandal. From GOP Vote Declines Less Than NYT Profit:
For the first time in 32 years, Democrats got more than 50 percent of the country to vote for their candidate in a national election, and now they want to lecture the Republican Party on how to win elections. Liberal Republicans have joined them, both groups hoping no one will notice that we just lost this election by running the candidate they chose for us.
In January this year, [David Brooks of the NY Times] boasted of McCain's ability to attract "independents."
And then Election Day arrived, and all the liberals who had spent years praising McCain all voted for Obama. Independents voted for Palin or voted against Obama. No one outside of McCain's immediate family was specifically voting for McCain.
We'd label this a "good trade": libs get a majority of the presidential popular vote every 32 years and in return, the Times gets to deliver a lecture.
The Times can now return to its status of a conservative chew-toy.
MORE CHANGES at CHANGE.gov
Remember when the 'Office of The President Elect was created? You don't? Well, don't feel bad: nobody else remembers either.
That's because there is no such office--outside the imaginative seal/sign wizards in the Obama campaign. The Obama campaign continues its run for the 2012 presidency before taking office in 2009, by using "Change.gov" to announce "change".
More web scrubbing from the industrious Internet-savvy Obama Bunch.
From Change.gov Removes Immigration Agenda - I Have A Screenshot [Pic]:
In an effort to hide their agenda, the website for Barack Obama - Change.gov which touts itself ridiculously as being part of the "Office of the President-Elect" which doesn't actually exist - has apparently removed a whole host of agenda items. Included in this was their agenda on immigration, which I was planning on posting an article about, but when I went back today it was mysteriously deleted. It seems that the website has lived up to the name of "Change".
I have managed to grab a screenshot of the immigration page prior to it's deletion and you can click the image at right to see a full version of the page.
DBKP had previously written about the 'America Serves' page at Change.gov: which detailed "required" volunteering of middle school, high school and college students--parts of which were quickly changed and/or deleted at Change.gov.

MICROSOFT WINDOWS 7 and VISTA: EVIL TWINS
PC World gets a sneak peek at Windows 7--the "upgrade" to the "upgrade" of Windows Vista. Randall Kennedy writes in "Under the Hood, Windows 7 Is Vista's Twin":
Bottom line: So far, Windows 7 looks, behaves, and performs almost exactly like Windows Vista. And it breaks all sorts of things that used to work just fine under Vista. In other words, Microsoft's follow-up to its most unpopular OS release since Windows Me threatens to deliver zero measurable performance benefits while introducing new and potentially crippling compatibility issues.
Windows Vista has permanently eroded the company's reputation among IT decision makers, and from what we've seen of Windows 7 so far, Microsoft still doesn't get it.
Microsoft may have been better off making those unfortunate enough to use Vista sign a marriage vows-like certificate purchase agreement promising to stay with the operating system through "better or worse".
