The man is a disgrace.

Take a look at a 360 degree interactive panorama of Mars taken by the Curiosity Rover. You can see Curiosity itself and the tracks it has made on the planet’s surface prior to shooting the photo. Go full screen.
This is amazing stuff. Hell, I remember Sputnik 1, the Russian satelite that kicked off the space race in 1957. We were dazzled by this “thing” that was circling the earth and not doing much more than transmitting “beeps” back to earth. Since that time, we’ve had men walk on the moon, numerous space shuttle flights, we find our way from place A to place B with the help of satelites, and now I am sitting at my computer looking at a color picture of the surface of the planet Mars as if I were there.
Don’t tell me the United States is not exceptional.
Thanks to da Chef of da Future for the link.

Yes, I did watch last night’s debate.
It was a pleasure to finally see someone look The One in the eye and confront him with the mess he and his administration have made of this country over the last four years. He has surrounded himself with third-rate flunkies who, I’m sure, would never even think to question his brilliance. The press sure as hell has never confronted him (with a couple rare exceptions). He hardly ever has press conferences, and when he does, it amounts to a softball throwing contest. Besides it is difficult to confront someone when your nose is planted firmly up someone’s ass.
Even better than witnessing The One finally being confronted with his screwups was watching the pathetic manchild stand there and take it, because his record is indefensible. Too bad for him it took him until last night to realize that.
I suspect it will get really ugly now.
Make damned sure you vote in November.

“The Day I’m Inaugurated Muslim Hostility Will Ease.”
He really said that. Listen.
Note: You may have to endure a short advertisement. It’s worth the thirty-second wait.
