Palin’s 17 year old daughter Bristol is pregnant!

McCain knew this before his decision to select Palin. And even James Dobson approves…well, at least of the way the family is handling the matter.

On the other hand, Obama must think the Palins are awful parents–punishing their daughter with a baby.

From our point of view, this is another “non-event” in this campaign…except for hardcore liberals.

Here’s an excerpt from FoxNews.com (read the rest at link)…

McCain’s campaign told FOX News that the presumptive Republican presidential candidate knew about Bristol Palin’s pregnancy before he chose Palin as his running mate last Friday, and that Bristol is planning to marry the father of her child. The baby is due in late December.

“We have been blessed with five wonderful children who we love with all our heart and mean everything to us,” the Palins said in the statement. “Our beautiful daughter Bristol came to us with news that as parents we knew would make her grow up faster than we had ever planned. We’re proud of Bristol’s decision to have her baby and even prouder to become grandparents. As Bristol faces the responsibilities of adulthood, she knows she has our unconditional love and support.”

Kristol: Colin Powell to Endorse Barack Obama (FoxNews.com)

WTF! I am speechless!

We all knew it was possible, but–this is insanity (it sure isn’t Sparta!)…

“This is not an absolute done deal, but these people are very confident that Powell will endorse Obama,” Kristol said, adding that he thinks Powell still has “a high respect” for John McCain, Obama’s Republican rival.

Scientists Say Invisibility Cloak Now Possible (Updated 8/13)

UPDATE 8/13/2008 at 7:58 AM: Here is a follow-up article at BBC that provides some additional information on this topic… Invisibility cloak ‘step closer’. And here is the original article by Xiang Zhang in NatureThree-dimensional optical metamaterial with a negative refractive index (there is a fee to access the entire article in Nature).

Original Posting on 8/11/2008

This is a huge step forward.

From FoxNews.com (excerpt and link)…

People can see objects because they scatter the light that strikes them, reflecting some of it back to the eye. Cloaking uses materials, known as metamaterials, to deflect radar, light or other waves around an object, like water flowing around a smooth rock in a stream.

Metamaterials are mixtures of metal and circuit board materials such as ceramic, Teflon or fiber composite. They are designed to bend visible light in a way that ordinary materials don’t. Scientists are trying to use them to bend light around objects so they don’t create reflections or shadows.

Edwards admits to affair with Rielle Hunter, denies fathering child

UPDATE at 8:37 pm 8/8/2008: Huffington Post points out that, per Edwards’ statement, Elizabeth Edwards knew about the affair before John declared for the Presidency. Strange complicity considering that, if the public ever found out about the affair, it could severely damage the Democratic Party had Edwards become the nominee.

UPDATE at 5:10 pm 8/8/2008: Per Wall Street Journal

David Bonior, Edwards’ campaign manager, told the Associated Press on Friday that he was disappointed and angry after hearing about Edwards’ confession.

“Thousands of friends of the senators and his supporters have put their faith and confidence in him and he’s let him down,” said Bonior. “They’ve been betrayed by his action.”

Asked whether the affair would damage Edwards’ future aspirations in public service, Bonior replied: “You can’t lie in politics and expect to have people’s confidence.”

Well, here’s the beginning of the end of this story (and of Edwards’ career)…

John Edwards admitted to an affair with his former videographer, Rielle Hunter, in an interview with ABC News, though he denies tabloid reports that he is the father of her child.

In the interview, scheduled to be broadcast Friday night on ABC’s Nightline, the former North Carolina senator said he repeatedly lied about the affair during his failed presidential campaign.

He told ABC News that he didn’t love Hunter, 42, and knew he wasn’t the father of her child because of the timing of the baby’s birth on Feb. 27.

The National Enquirer first reported the allegations in October and published a new report in July on an incident between the tabloid’s reporters and Edwards at a Beverly Hills hotel where Hunter and her child reportedly were staying.
