    man, the first thing I think of when I see ‘Bob Barr’ is ‘Bob Barker’ of Price is Right fame.
    But cool–open comments? That’s not normal for a presidential candidate–I thought they were supposed to be not accessible to the people–how cool is that!

    “That’s not normal for a presidential candidate–I thought they were supposed to be not accessible to the people”

    Well, he’s the libertarian candidate, so it would be odd not to be open to the people that way. ‘Cause that’s what libertarianism is about (often very close to anarchism, even).

  4. BTW, I duuno what that logo to the left of my name is, but as a German I feel slightly uncomfortable to be labeled by it. It bears loose resemblance to a swastika (my guess is, that’s the Indian sign the swastika was based off).

    No offense, but Bob Barr is captain ploppy pants in my not so humble estimation. A hypocrite and would have the US up on the auction block before you could say, Bo Diddley. WP should hide from this association, I know I’d would.

  6. Sunny… he’s not running as a Republican or a Democrat so he is not “late for the game”… in fact he’s right on time as there isn’t really a Libertarian Primary schedule and both the major parties are just now entering the general election cycle.

    Mary… what gives you that idea?

  7. I duuno what that logo to the left of my name is, but as a German I feel slightly uncomfortable to be labeled by it.

    It’s programmatically generated from a hash of your e-mail address… so it’s effectively random. Go sign up for a Gravatar to specify the image you want (on this site, and others).

    WP should hide from this association

    Whatever your political principles or associations, I think it’s cool that so many candidates are embracing social media — especially when they use WordPress. And Barr’s site has open comments (i.e. no registration) which is more of a wholehearted embrace of the open spirit of the Internet that I’ve seen any other candidate take, so I think it’s noteworthy.

    Len, I wondered the same thing.

  8. howstrange says:

    re: shadaik and the unfortunate swastika looking thingie.

    This website is using a icon generator that builds a geometric avatar for people who don’t use gravatar based off of your email address. Hopefully it is random. I wonder if any other users with a german ISP/email addy have seen any thing unusual for their avatar?

    As for Bob Barr… The party already has my vote. I was hoping Paul would slide on over but looks like he wants on a republican ticket.

  9. maxwellpink says:

    Ah yes, Bob Barr of “Get Them Damn Witches Out of the Military,” and “Taxpayer-Funded Witchcraft Begone” fame.

    Dumba**.

  10. I just noticed that his blog used WP 2.3.3. I wonder if this will end as another famous site using WordPress that gets hacked.

  11. The question is whether he will take more votes off Obama or McCain. I’m guessing the latter, since Republicans are questioning his “conservative credentials” whatever the hell that means.

  12. I found this website I’m a soccer player and love good products and a very important info… check it out !!!

    Can I ask though – how did you get this picked up and into google news?

    Very impressive, is it something that is just up to Google or you actively created?

    Obviously this is a popular blog with great data so well done on your seo success..

  17. Hi mark

  20. It’s almost over, but last night Palin’s speech did a job. She showed the Nation, she could make a strong leader – great vice-president candidate, but how come they’re not focusing on McCain now? What about him? He didn’t lead by 20 points… so they better start focusing on him. She’s already set.

  21. Dear Sirs and Ms of the USA:
    I feel insulted about Mr.Ohama borken services recorder.I taked it as a insulted to all who serviced.He has ever been in the services and doesn’t understand it until you been there.The sevices people give their freedom up, so we may have it.I am a formal service man.That all I going to say and that is more than Mr. Ohama can say.The botton of my tv sceen as the new vice president make her speach.They was running about Mr.Mcain cancer,do they haved the right to do that?I am very pround of Mr. MCcain ,about the vice persident choice he make.We can do it.They young people not seasons ,and that’s how hitler got in.They just wanted to be one of the group.So they will go along with it.Sounds like Hitler to me.They want a changed,if you choice is Ohama,it may be for worest choce and wrong changed.

  22. Bob Barr is alive? Isn’t it amazing how the news cannot even mention some things?

    I remember a guy named Ron Paul, and he barely got a byline, even though he had some of the biggest fundraising days on record.

    The power of the central authority…

  23. Dear:Sirs and Ms,
    The only way Mr.Ohama can come up to the new vice president is to cut her down.
    He said the American people are stupid if they do not think the way he does.That is false,He can not come up to her level,so he throw mud anyway he can.He is (Jealous) of the good Job she done. and the record she has.May be if he would do something they could find some mud on him.

  25. Thanks to the article, Now there is more reason to comment than ever before! Everyone should participate. I am incorporating what your wrote to our project!

  26. Fighting breast cancer is so important, and funding for more cancer research is vitalf for this. I hope Bob Barr supports Breast Cancer research!

  27. As of late I came across something that really helped me online with my internet marketing and I thought I might share the information. I found this website called http://www.InternetMillionaireProducer.com and the system that was set up is quite different. I finally learnt how to set up my own websites, incorporate compelling and persuasive copy, build banners, pop ups, web forms, email databases, obtain targeted traffic to my websites and so much more. I recommend this website to anyone who has been struggling or just starting out…he’s got it going on. Good luck.

  28. I agree with cancers comment – Fighting breast cancer is so important, and funding for more cancer research is vitalf for this. I hope Bob Barr supports Breast Cancer research!

    As my sister is currently fighting it.

  29. Robert L. Barr has entered the 08 Presidential on the libertarian party ticket, and CNN is giving his campaign some great free publicity. He hasn’t actually announced a run yet, he announced an exploratory committee.It is a known fact that “Turbo” button in the upper-right corner of WordPress 2.6 (and WordPress.com)? That button uses Google Gears to store static WordPress admin files locally, speeding up your WordPress admin experience.

  30. Eventually, this party will make a major mark in United States politics. The only thing that we, as US citizens, need to understand that everything comes with change. The Dems and Republicans have to continuously push thorough their agenda to the point that the people will be forced to look for another outlook to represent them in all 3 areas of government. As far as Mr. Barr, I think that despite his ultra-conservative approach to conducting policy (including tightening the grip on the war on drugs and yearning to abolish the religious practice of wicca in The Pentagon), he has a clear plan about shaking up the government and slowly turning out country towards a state of neutralism. If the US were a neutral country, our debt would probably be half of what it is today.

  31. Dears Sirs And Ms
    I am writing in regards of the family tree on the Presidents.I like to study’s the presidents even as a child.I am not a young person nor am I rich.The passed study’s on the presidents has all came from good family’s and some was from the arms forces of both party’s.Mr. Ohama.He came from a black father and white mother.The father took off and left the family very young.Mr. Ohama mother was very pretty young.(That not much information on Mr.Ohama family tree.)fore the highs offices of the U.S.A.Please think on this when you vote.
    Thanking you for your time Jack

  32. Hmm interesting blog and watching the two contenders trying to get the top job…its amazing what they will say ..really.

    All people care about at the end of the day is bascially “is he the man for the job” and “will he be able to fix this fiscal crisis”.

    They cannot see that though, their ego is too big.

  33. Fighting breast cancer is so important, and funding for more cancer research is vitalf for this. I hope Bob Barr supports Breast Cancer research!

  34. Dear: Sirs or Ms (only in American)
    Mr. Ohama father was a negro bum and his mothe, a very good looking white woman.
    To the black people of American,You did see how he stood by his Pastor.He will not back the black people neither.He didn’t get there that way.(What a family tree for the president of the USA.)(ONLY IN AMERICAN)
    From Jack.Have a good night.

  35. Dear:Ms and Sirs.
    Mr.Clinton is backing Mr.Ohama in the race for president and back up advice.The way I recalled it when Mr.Clinton was in offices he got the free trade passed.I was not for it then and I am not for it now.I know Mr.McCain is for it.and that is my party.I will ever be for it.I have seen plants shut down in my state becaused of it.It is hard for the people working to make a living in my state.Do you want an other Jimmy Carter in offices when your’s moeny wouldn’t buy anything.I repect Mr.Carter,but not as a president.You couldn’t tell the people about Jimmy Cater and you can’t tell the people about Mr.Ohama. Have a good night Jack

    Админчег🙂 У меня к тебе небольшое предложение, хоть и не по теме блога😉 Напиши пожалуйста свой обзор передачи Гордон Кихот. Особенно прошлый выпуск, про Шансон.

    Спасибо🙂 Удачи дружище

  37. Dear: Sirs and MS.
    Today I saw an ad on television about Mr.McCain.It is about looking back with brush.A good leader always looks head ,not back.However it was talk about,if the young people of American,black or what ever,could see back when he was in office,and he is one of the advises for Mr.Ohama.I could say maybe he will teach him on how to get a blow job.When we lost the trade we had and the free trade came about.Shuting so many plants down in my state and others.He looks like he is on medication by his eyes.Maybe it stress or just tired.Maybe he is on drugs again.The young people could back fifteen years.They may choiced Mr.McCain in stead of Mr.Ohama.Have a good night Jack

  38. McCain has not done anything special in his life. He was one of the many prisioners, but one a the few with the right contacts. He has used this to present himsel as a hero, but he is very far from that.
    To top that, he chooses pallin to be his right hand. Just check out her history and then you’ll know about thier idea of democracy.

    Come on guys, you have a chance to make history, don’t let it pass and go for Obama.

  39. There are hundreds of them, indeed. If you spend a lot of time searching, you might come across a perfect design precisely meeting your requirements. But in my opinion, better and maybe faster option is to make yourself one or ask some template designer. I’m trying to do mine on my own, few minutes ago I read a very good tutorial on how to proceed and it’s on a very good way. Keep on blogging.

  40. Dear: Ms and Sirs,
    I would like to set the recorder straight,If he is voted in by notseasoned voters.He will not be the first African black President.He will be the first white and black man or half Afican man and half white.His father was a black man and his mother a white woman.I felt he is more white than black by not standing up for his black pastor.I felt that I am not smart in wording letters,but could had come up with words that the black and whites both could kept their pride.That is seasoned not smart.I can not tell you or he may used words in a matter that would be the same.They tried to vote Mr. Clinton out of offices if you would read your history.Have a good night,Jack

  41. Dear: Sirs and Ms
    The timme is up and from eighteem to twenty seven years of age.It wills be the main vote that makes the next president.Lets not go back to the forty by giving it in wages and taking it away in taxes.
    I felt sorry for a weak man losing his grandmother and didn’t know what state he was in.I feel even more sorry for the men and women dieing every day so we can have our freedom.Get out and vote.I feel your’s mind is already make up.Have a good night and signing off .Jack

  42. I don’t mean to be too in your face, but I’m not sure I agree with this. Anyhow, thanks for sharing and I think I’ll come to this blog more often.

  43. We are entering a new age and it is clear that the internet will play an ever increasing role in future elections. It’s a far cry from GW Bush referring to the “internets”

  44. Politicians always portray themselves as open and honest until they are elected.After they are in office however, they just become the same dishonest power hungry scumbags their predecessors were.

    The cycle continues…

  45. I enjoyed reading your work! GREAT post! I looked around for this… but I found you!🙂 Anyway, would you mind if I threw up a backlink from my site at whiterabbitcult.com to your site?

  46. Thanks for this reassuring post, Chris. Although I’d like Microsoft to give you more time to invest in this extremely important task you now have, I think it’s very good that it is a Microsoft employee (like you) that has taken the position as chairman of the HTML WG. I believe you will do an excellent job and even more importantly, I think you will do a good job of bringing the HTML WG’s work inside Microsoft and “evangalizing” about it there so future versions of Internet Explorer will comply better with the specification.

  47. The Government of MS announces a new rail line will be built between two cities. There is a large mountain between but MS has a few alternatives. They build a road around/over it instead. People and goods wanting to use the rail line must be transferred to road to the other side before continuing their rail journey.

  50. Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the net the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get irked while people consider worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people can take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks

  51. Finally, got what I was looking for!! I definitely enjoying every little bit of it. Glad I stumbled into this blog post! smile I have you saved to check out new stuff you blog post.

  52. I just wanted to leave a simple thoughts to talk about that your site was wonderful. I discovered it on the search engines search after going through a great deal of other information which had been not likely related. I thought I’d find this much earlier considering how great the content is.
