If you grow up in Hawaii, raised by your grandparents, you're "exotic, different."
Grow up in Alaska eating moose burgers, you're a quintessential American story.
If your name is Barack you're a radical, unpatriotic Muslim.
Name your kids Willow, Trig and Track, you're a maverick.
Graduate from Harvard law School and you are unstable.
Attend 5 different small colleges before graduating, you're well grounded.
If you spend 3 years as a brilliant community organizer, become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor, spend 8 years as a State Senator representing a district with over 750,000 people, become chairman ofthe state Senate's Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of 13 million people while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran's Affairs committees, you don't have any real leadership experience.
If your total resume is: local weather girl, 4 years on the city council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with less than 7,000 people, 20 months as the governor of a state with only 650,000 people, then you're qualified to become the country's second highest ranking executive.
If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising 2 beautiful daughters, all within Protestant churches, you're not a real Christian.
If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, then left your disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month, you're a Christian.
If you teach responsible, age appropriate sex education, including the proper use of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of society.
If, while governor, you staunchly advocate abstinence only, with no other option in sex education in your state's school system while your unwed teen daughter ends up pregnant, you're very responsible.
If your wife is a Harvard graduate lawyer who gave up a position in a prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner city community, then gave that up to raise a family, your family's values don't represent America's.
If you're husband is nicknamed "First Dude", with at least one DWI conviction and no college education, who didn't register to vote until age 25 and once was a member of a group that advocated the secession of Alaska from the USA, your family is extremely admirable.
OK? Much clearer now?

The Volt will be driven by electricity stored in a large T-shaped lithium-ion battery pack running the length of the car. After charging for several hours, the Volt will be able to run for up to about 40 miles without using gasoline.

We were number 11, but I have a few extra gray hairs this year and points are obviously deducted for that type of ugliness.
Evidently Philadelphia is the ugliest place in the U.S.

Hard to believe, right? Get used to it because President McCain is a LIKELY possibly.

So weird! This woman was in my second period Photo Class. Man am I gullible? I have never seen such a young looking high school student before. And look how happy she is too.

I am not kidding. Today they asked John McCain the toughest questions he's received all campaign season and every other journalist in the country should take note. Go ladies!
Watch the clips here.

I agree with most on this list, but I think adding Physical Graffitti by Led Zeppelin, The Steve Miller Bands Greatest Hits, and Pearl Jam 10 is a must. Also, you need to have something from R.E. M. Most would argue for Murmurs, but I would say Automatic For the People, which was the 2nd best record of 90's after OK Computer.
By the way, you HAVE to take And Justice For All by Metallica over their Black Album. And where the hell is Appetite For Destruction by Guns-N-Roses?
I am sure you will think of some other albums that are missing...
The question I have for you is this: what are the new modern classics that will be High School and college essentials? What albums that have come out in the last 10-12 years that everyone will own and know all the words or air guitar moves to?
I have a few ideas which I will add shortly, but I am interested in what you think? Go ahead and list the modern classics in the comments section and forward this post along to any music fans. Greatest Hits albums are OK as are EP collections like the Beta Bands Three Ep's and Fugazi's 13 Songs.

Peggy Noonan, Mike Murphy Caught On Tape Disparaging Palin Choice: "It's Over," "Political Bullshit," "Gimmicky"
If you are into Politics at all, especially if you are an avid MSNBC watcher, this video is pretty shocking

How does a woman with a pregnant 17 year-old daughter, a five month-old son with Downs Syndrome, and three other children think she'll have time to be Vice-President? How will her husband take care of the family on his own? Why would I trust the judgment of someone who doesn't put family first?
