    $3 Million Overhead Projector? McCain Lie Shows No Understanding of Science or Technology
    Did anyone else wonder what McCain was talking about last night when he slammed Obama over funding for a "$3 million overhead projector"? I did, and so did others. Here's a great response from someone who knows what they are talking about:

    I am an Associate Professor of Astronomy at the University of Chicago (the University that today has added yet another Nobel Prize winner in the sciences for the US). I would like to comment on Sen. McCain's statement during the today's debate that Sen. Obama has earmarked "$3 million for an overhead projector at a planetarium in Chicago, Ill. My friends, do we need to spend that kind of money?"

    The way Sen. McCain has phrased it suggests that Sen. Obama approved spending $3 million on an old-fashioned piece of office equipment (overhead projector).
    The 3 million is actually for an upgrade of the SkyTheater - a full dome projection system, which is probably the main attraction of the Adler Planetarium and is quite sophisticated and impressive piece of equipment.
    The Case Of The $3 Million Overhead Projector
    ""While we were working to eliminate these pork barrel earmarks he (Senator Obama) voted for nearly $1 billion in pork barrel earmark projects. Including $3 million for an overhead projector at a planetarium in Chicago, Illinois. My friends, do we need to spend that kind of money?""
    Surprise! That wasn't exactly the full story. What we're really talking about is the Adler Planetarium in Chicago, and that overhead projector is not something you place transparencies on in a classroom.
    Adler Planetarium Press Release: The Adler's Zeiss Mark VI projector - not an overhead projector - is the instrument that re-creates the night sky in a dome theater, the quintessential planetarium experience. The Adler's projector is nearly 40 years old and is no longer supported with parts or service by the manufacturer. It is only the second planetarium projector in the Adler's 78 years of operation.
    By the way, the earmark was not approved. My friends, Adler Planetarium did not receive that money.

    Thanks, Viggie,
    I know about the Planetarium's projection system, and really it is nearly the whole show there.

    When McSame started railing about it, I knew what he meant. I'm pleased to see that people came back and bit him for the comment.
    What a jerk - HE, who doesn't know how many houses he has!

    This is yet another example of McCain being so out of touch with technology that he doesn't understand the difference between an old-fashioned projector & an arena-sized projection system that has brought the wonders of our solar system to thousands and thousands of schoolchildren and their parents.

    But how could he know? He doesn't even have enough curiousity to learn very basic things about how computers and the internet have transformed the way people communicate. The problem isn't that his arms are too impaired from his POW days to send his own emails. It's that his mind is too impaired to understand what he doesn't know.

    Thumbsup Hoover vs. Roosevelt?

    Hoover vs. Roosevelt?
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...editorialpages

    "In recent days, Obama has painted himself as calm, pragmatic, open and hopeful. He seemed to be channeling FDR when he told a crowd in Indianapolis on Wednesday: "This isn't a time for fear or for panic. This is a time for resolve and steady leadership."

    As for McCain, his campaign is trying to sow fear and panic about Obama. That's exactly what Herbert Hoover tried to do with Roosevelt. Days before the 1932 election, Hoover attacked Roosevelt's "inchoate New Deal." He predicted it would "crack the timbers of the Constitution" and warned voters to beware of the "glitter of promise."
    <>
    It's too early to predict that the 2008 campaign will turn out like the one in 1932. But history suggests that in American elections, the candidate who underestimates his opponent often loses, and hope almost always beats fear. "

    Yeah, I couldn't believe how dumb it sounded to criticize spending money on a planetarium. It's an educational building. I love planetariums. More money to planetariums!!!

    Obama opens a double-digit lead in new NEWSWEEK poll

    "The global financial meltdown has caused a dramatic shift in the 2008 presidential race, according to the latest NEWSWEEK poll. With four weeks left in the presidential campaign, Barack Obama now leads John McCain by double digits, 52 percent to 41 percent among registered voters—a marked shift from the last NEWSWEEK poll, conducted one month ago, when the two candidates were tied at 46 percent.

    Underlying Obama's surge in support: An historic boiling over of dissatisfaction with the status quo. An astounding 86 percent of voters now say they are dissatisfied with the way things are going in the United States, while a mere 10 percent say they are satisfied. That's the highest wrong track/right track ratio ever recorded in the NEWSWEEK poll."

    Petraeus Talk Bolsters Obama

    http://washingtonindependent.com/11381/petraeus

    "Throughout Sen. John McCain’s presidential campaign, the Republican nominee has wrapped himself in the mantle of U.S. Army Gen. David H. Petraeus, proclaiming himself the leading advocate of the former commanding general in Iraq who devised last year’s controversial troop surge. Yet during a talk Wednesday about Iraq at the Heritage Foundation, a conservative Washington policy organization, Petraeus repeatedly made statements that bolstered the foreign-policy proposals of Sen. Barack Obama, McCain’s Democratic rival, or cut against McCain’s own lines."

    Shades A Buckley endorses Obama

    http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com...ndorses-obama/

    "No, hell has not frozen over, but a Buckley is backing a Democrat for president.

    Christopher Buckley, the son of the late conservative icon William F. Buckley, said Friday he's decided to back Barack Obama's White House bid, the first time in his life he will vote Democrat.

    “It’s a good thing my dear old mum and pup [sic] are no longer alive. They’d cut off my allowance," Buckley, a columnist for the conservative National Review, wrote on the Web site The Daily Beast Friday."

    Those were great links. I agree, I loved the second one. The bloopers at the end were hilarious.

    I wish some of the paranoid people would watch that and realize that Barack Obama is not the demon they're trying to make him out to be.

    It's just the color of his skin they can't stand, plus a few people who can't get over Hillary.
    BUTT, soon we will be calling him "Mr. President" and I am certain they will not suffer any more than I have looking at GWB for the past eight years.

    My power went out momentarily and my alarm system woke me up with the beeping...

    I was thinking earlier how good it was for Obama to come out with this small business proposal. Rather than proposing huge projects that we can't really afford, I think these smaller projects to help individuals are really going to speak to voters. I'm glad that he's staying on target with the issues.

    The next debate party is going to be at a local university following a state bus tour kickoff at headquarters. All the debates have been fun to watch as a group. You know, I've really enjoyed my first time becoming involved with a campaign. I should have done this sooner! I guess it just took the right candidate to get me involved. I'm taking off from work on election day to spend all day trying to get people out to vote.

    How are things going with the campaigns in your states? I think Mary Landrieu looks pretty good for re-election. She really has a history of fighting for our state that attracts the support of people from all party affiliations.

    The campaigns have been really active around there. This election I've had 2 people come to my door to talk about Obama. Incidentally I've had NONE come around for McCain.

    Yeah, Obama has had his ground game on the ... ground for more than a year, back when he was still "that black guy who did the nice speech at the 2004 DNC".

    I thought our man Joe and the Clintons were on fire in Scranton today!

    I volunteered this evening, made more calls, and attended the weekly strategy meeting. We're so close, yet so far away. It's going to be a busy 23 days.
