Fil sent me this link today. It’s pretty neat, a short survey that basically tells you which candidate most accurately reflects your views. The survey isn’t too thorough, but it’s interesting nonetheless. These were my results:
1. Libertarian Candidate (100%)
2. Bush, George W. – US President (66%)
3. Sharpton, Reverend Al – Democrat (47%)
4. Dean, Gov. Howard, VT – Democrat (47%)
5. Kucinich, Cong. Dennis, OH – Democrat (43%)
6. Edwards, Senator John, NC – Democrat (40%)
7. Kerry, Senator John, MA – Democrat (39%)
8. Phillips, Howard – Constitution (39%)
9. Gephardt, Cong. Dick, MO – Democrat (39%)
10. Lieberman Senator Joe CT – Democrat (37%)
11. Graham, Senator Bob, FL – Democrat (32%)
12. Moseley-Braun, Former Senator Carol IL – Democrat (23%)
13. LaRouche, Lyndon H. Jr. – Democrat (-8%)
Thanks to the comment from Allison on Schulte’s log, I was able to read this article.
NIH says McSweegan is director of the US-Indo Vaccine Action Program, and has traveled to countries such as Russia representing the agency. He has also ”produced reports and other work products.”
But McSweegan said he has never been told he was director of the program and knew of no such title. Three other people ran the project, and his work for it — such as arranging coffee for lunches and forwarding messages — was ”the kind of work you would get an intern to do.”
Another $100K well spent by the government. As amazing as it is, it still doesn’t surprise me. And just think, how many people in this guys’ shoes do you think would really fess up to it and give an interview like this? Probably not many. Who knows how many more people are out there flying under the radar collecting our money? The government is huge and cannot account for itself.
And who wants to bet that the NIH is still getting plenty of federal dollars despite these inefficiencies that would leave it bankrupt if it were a private organization?
Well, the streak ended in full force today. I saw two movies and, thankfully, neither showed a man’s bare ass. One was Capturing the Friedmans which was quite good and didn’t show any naked behinds even though there was a lot of discussion about sodomy. The second was the 25th Hour which was decent, and although Edward Norton talked about getting raped in prison, thankfully no such scenes were present in the film.
So, since me and my 2 friends agreed we’d communicate solely through Web Logs… what’s the deal with Schulte’s bachelor party? I talked to the best man who pretty much said we should go at it. Have we done anything for it yet though? No. Do I have any free weekends between now and the wedding? Not really. Does it look like this thing will really get off the ground? It sure as hell doesn’t.
