Atlanta blogs today

Posted By on Fri, Sep 5, 2008 at 3:22 PM

— The Republican party is over, the elephants have left Minneapolis and Sarah Palin is the modern day Joan of Arc. What's left? The same old same old, says Amy Morton at Georgia Women Vote. She also slips in the line of the day, discussing Gov. Perdue's interest in having the power to take over a school system.

— The graphic of the day comes from Travis at Lucid Idiocy, who has posted a wordle that compares the acceptance speeches of Obama and McCain. What's a wordle? It shows which words they used the most, and the result is fascinating and in stark contrast.

— And the uppity idiot of the day award, of course, goes to Georgia Congressman Lynn Westmoreland, who is obviously still trying to learn every one of those 10 Commandments. Mel at Blog For Democracy goes off on Westmoreland for perpetuating all sorts of stereotypes.

DriftGrift's reaction is sadness because he thinks McCain is a good man, and that his acceptance speech will be his last hoorah.

— There's more to life than politics. And at My Urban Report has posted a video report on his road trip to Myrtle Beach to chase Hurricane Hannah, and how his wife is none too happy with the idea.

— And finally, leave it to the fine ladies at Pecanne Log to keep it real. Take a ride with them on the Bulldog Bounce. Go Dawgs!
