Someone Ripped Me Off!

Okay..well not really. As Ben Smith reports on Politico:
"An Iowa woman impersonating Sarah Palin apparently made her way on stage at Republican presidential candidate John McCain's rally in Cedar Falls on Sunday and stood right behind McCain as he gave his speech, reacting to the speech like she was the real Palin."
I am dressing as Tina Fey dressing as Sarah Palin for Halloween (will post pictures after Halloween feista) I have down the accent, the mannerisms, the hair, mauve lipstick AND of course the eye wear. However, this woman (The woman identified as Eva Andersen, a music major at the University of Northern Iowa) TOTALLY upstaged me! Im so jealous.

Entering the Age of the Tweet

For those of you who have been hiding under a rock or such and have not heard of, its time for a change. (though its hard not to notice Twitter with CNN's Rick Sanchez around & replacing CNN's news ticker with a Twitter ticker) After joining Twitter only about 2 months ago, I now find it hard to NOT update my Tweets every few hours.

Check out this blog post about Twitter by Nancy Scola and Allison Fine:

I myself just wrapped up a piece for Alabama Public Radio on exactly how the internet is changing political campaigning and the American public's role in news gathering. (I will post the link to listen once it is aired sometime next week)

The internet as a whole is changing the face of politics as we know it...prepare yourself world.

Oh How Fascinating

Possibly one of the imaginative and interesting takes ive seen on a space.... is Abelardo Morell's "Camera Obscura of Central Park Looking North, Summer 2008" I simply cannot get over this.

Its October 1st, so you know what that means....

Its almost Halloween!
I became so ecstatic when I saw this on Shenanigans on Politico.
I now begin my hunt for the perfect pumpkin and the oh so important perfect costume.
(Im REALLY thinking of channeling the sexy librarian vibe Palin has going on)
