— As the big debate approaches, is Sarah Palin a sign the apocalypse is upon us? Over at Politits, Dcup wonders how Johnny Mac feels when his running mate is more popular than he is.

— Seeing the latest Katie Couric interview is disturbing. And the lovely Sara at Going Through The Motions makes the case that she's the more qualified "Sara" to be vice-president because she can actually name some rather well-known Supreme Court cases. Maybe the other Sarah should click through to the list, just to bone up on our country's history.

— And who wants to bet that the magazines she wouldn't admit to reading include the National Enquirer and US Weekly? Based on Palin's lack of reading material, ATLmalcontent hopes that it all turns out to be a bad dream come January.

— Ms. Palin professes to have a gay friend, although his/her identity remains a mystery. But J-Mac did agree to give an interview to a gay magazine, although he dictated that the questions and answers be written out. Can't ever be too careful, right Mr. "Straight Talk" Express? At Reporter-Cub, there's links and some analysis.

— As Driftgrift notes, Cynthia McKinney is running for president. No, I'm not kidding. Really and truly. For the Green Party. And based on the video Driftgrift dug up, either it's the end of the world as we know it or else Cynthia has turned completely psychotic. Dig those bugged-out eyes.

– Going local, Righteous Jackass ponders Karen Handel, who used op-ed space in the AJC to make a vow to protect the integrity of the November elections and yet fights to limit the number of people who actually can vote. It's the idea of the elite democracy, he says, where only a few are smart enough to lead the rest of us.

— And, finally, going even more local, the fine ladies at Pecanne Log discuss CL's bankruptcy and stake out their vision for what the paper should be in the future.
