This is how you know Becky and I are both huge dorks. We had the following exchange in bed last night, as we were each starting to drift off to sleep:
Brendan: "You know what would be awesome?"
Brendan: "If there was a superdelegate with superpowers. He could be called Super-Superdelegate."
Becky: [pause] "That would be awesome."
Heaven help poor Loyette. ;)
You need a tech support article for this.
P.S. Older but funnier:
The handle on my Starbucks tumbler randomly broke off this morning. Alas, I didn't spill hot coffee on myself, so I guess I won't be able to sue for millions… :)
Looks like some are going to extremes to match the new MacBook Air’s uber-thin profile.

Glenn Reynolds wants a robot.
Don’t do it, Glenn! Remember: when they grab you with those metal claws, you can’t break free, because they’re made of metal, and robots are strong.
P.S. There are Old Glory Robot Insurance t-shirts. Heh.
Casey worries that, by electing Barack Obama president, we would be setting ourselves up for a catastrophic comet impact: “Black presidents are not good at destroying massive asteroids or comets. ThereÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a one-to-one correlation between black presidents and comet impacts.” Heh.

It’s Thanksgiving, which means it’s time for the annual presidential turkey pardoning:
You know, when President Clinton was in office, a turkey had to donate $5,000 to his presidential library to get a pardon.
P.S. The Washington Post has an article on the history of the turkey-pardoning tradition, which apparently doesn’t go back nearly as far as is annually reported. (Hint: 1989, not 1947. Bush, not Truman.)
UPDATE: Welcome, InstaPundit readers! I hope you all had a great Thanksgiving.
Oregon’s loss is all Ryan Leaf’s fault. Heh.
Also: "Remember the implications of this: because of the injury to Dennis
DixonÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s knee, we might see literally dozens of football players suffer
career-ending injuries in their attempt to carry a victorious Mark
Mangino off the field in New Orleans this January."
UPDATE: Dennis Dixon is out for the season. DAMN YOU, RYAN LEAF!!!
“Hey, I want you to know something. My dad fought in the war so you could have the privilege to say dumb things.” –Lou Holtz to Mark May on ESPN’s College Football Final, after an argument over whether Kansas (10-0) is the best team in the country.
