Obama reforms for seniors and middle class. Ryan dismantles for the rich.

John Sununu is a wonderful surrogate for Mitt. Inarticulate, Excitable, Vocally alienating. I am waiting to hear him sing.

Rachel performs a good service by tagging Ryan as anything but a fiscal conservative.

Paul Ryan rejecting Ayn Rand will chill the hearts of libertarians who may have considered the man honest.

Ryan says he and apparent new subordinate Mr. Mitt will discuss loopholes they will close after they are elected. Dream on, Koch sludge.

The new RNC ad will get people thinking. They will conclude that it was amazing that Obama got O-Care done, given the traitor Congress.

Mitt may be humiliated by his compromises and Ryan represents his death wish. A tacky replay of Macbeth.

Ryan helped add Five Trillion to the deficit with pro-Bush credit card votes.

RT : In voter ID Lawsuit, Pa admits they've NEVER prosecuted or investigated voter fraud. 

Romney-Ryan would cut 700 billion from Medicare at the expense of patients. O Care achieves this at the expense of insurance cos.

The capital gains tax, dividends tax, estate tax and corporate tax will be on the Romney chopping block.

The remarkable video at the link above is of a performance of "Sto perigiali" Mario Frangoulis and Mikis Theodorakis in 2001.

Frangoulis and Theodorakis are joined by musicians, including two bouzouki players, and a very large audience that is completely familiar with the words. The audience joins in at Frangoulis' prompt.

This is my very favorite Theodorakis melody. Those who know Theodorakis only for his "Zorba" music are in for a treat. When I was in Athens in 1966, for a short period of study with Constantinos Doxiadis, I knew nothing of Theodorakis. But about five years later, my friend Irene Vassos sang "Sto perigiali" to us. I have never gotten the tune out of my mind.

Later, when Irene joined our group to form a travelling company performing "New Rain", I learned to pick out a …
