No original material? No problem!

Here are two handy links from Bitch Ph.D.'s latest post (and she herself got the links elsewhere, and her post was called "Links to share," so I'm covered):

I don't agree with people being swayed by politicians' promises of tax cuts because yo, tax revenues pay for a lot of important stuff. Schools, parks, highways, medical research? I'm for 'em. But it's not fair for one candidate to rouse the rabble with claims that the Dems are all about "tax-and-spend." This site will calculate your tax cut under Obama's plan. Do you make less than a half mil a year? Then you will probably save on your tax bill.

Are you registered to vote where you live now? If you're not, or you don't know for sure, get cracking before it's too late. This link runs down the voter registration deadline for each state. In many, you need to register no later than a month before the election, so time's a-wasting!

Remember, the next president is likely to be appointing two to four Supreme Court justices. If McCain is elected, he seems keen on overturning Roe v. Wade, and appointing just two anti-choice justices will make that a reality. His running mate Sarah Palin is perhaps even more hardcore in her anti-choice stance. Maverick, my ass. Don't forget that McCain has voted with Bush 90% or more of the time—in the past year, I think I read that McCain's Senate votes have toed the party line 100% of the time. Where's the rebellion? Where's the reform? And don't get me started on the crock of steaming poo that the RNC was. Romney arguing that we need to get rid of the liberals who are running Washington? You mean...Bush and Cheney? Ri-i-i-ight. The height of ridiculosity, the Republicans running as change agents who will overthrow the liberal power structure when the Constitution-gutting GOP administration has been in charge for eight years. And Palin? Her police chief in Wasilla thought it was a fine idea to charge rape victims for the cost of collecting the "rape kit" evidence. You know what taxes ought to cover? Having the police investigate crime without billing the crime victims for it.

Yes, yes, yes, and did I mention yes?

My personal boggled-by-the-Right moment from the RNC came when Mitt Romney fumed, at the conclusion of a series of Things That Are Wrong with the World, that China "is like Adam Smith on steroids!" Wait--don't conservatives worship Adam Smith? Isn't he right up there in the pantheon with Ayn Rand?

You go girl. I was wondering when I was going to see you go politics.

Charging for rape kits? OMG....
