    It's easy to lose track of how long your shower's getting--especially when it's 10 degrees out and the only thing that roused you from bed was the vision of a steamy cascade of water. Well, Waterpebble is here to guilt you out of your wasteful ways. The little round device monitors water going down the drain. It records the length of your first Waterpebble shower and uses that as a benchmark, then indicating via a series of gently flashing "traffic lights" when you need to get out of the shower already! Green tells you to start showering, amber means you're...

    Amidst the innumerable excuses we're bound to hear for tonight's Massachusetts election results, credit Keith Olbermann with likely the most loathsome. The Countdown host would explain things away by accusing Brown supporters of . . . racism. [H/t reader Will H.] Olbermann floated his despicable theory to Howard Fineman: "the Republicans and the Tea Partiers will tell you what happens with Scott Brown tonight whether he wins or comes close is a repudiation of Obama policies. And surely one of Obama's policies from the viewpoint of his opponents is it's OK to have this sea-change in American history—to have an...

    Friends, What an amazing few days on the road this has been. Your spirits have been high, your faith strong and your spine unbendable. I ended my multiday book tour at The Villages with what had been billed as a rally but could be better described as a candid citizen-to-citizen chat. Today, I have stopped looking for a leader to show us the way out because I have come to realize that the only one who can truly save our country...is us. To change America's course we need to change ourselves, our expectations and our willingness to accept the...

    Watertown, N.Y. At the Northside Improvement League here in town a rally for Democratic congressional candidate Bill Owens has just gotten underway with remarks by local Democratic politicians. June O'Neill, executive chair of the New York Democratic party, just finished delivering a stemwinder about "right-wing extremists" bringing their "hatemongering" to the 23rd District. Biden is going to speak any minute, and there are maybe 250 people gathered (50 of them are with the media); Watertown has a population of 30,000. The event is open to the public--no one needed a ticket to get in--but the room is only about 65...
  • Obama legacy defense gets early start (Lame Duck already?)

    Politico ^ | 10/28/2009 | Carol E. Lee
    President Barack Obama has been in office just nine months and already he is defending his legacy, pushing back more aggressively against criticism of his record on health care, climate change, closing Guantanamo, reforming immigration laws and financial regulations and managing the war in Afghanistan. For the past two weeks, as he’s jetted across the country to fill Democrats’ 2010 coffers, Obama has been test driving a new speech that sounds a lot like one he’d be giving if he were on the ballot next year: A line-item defense of his record so far, and a sober reminder to supporters...

    President Obama's advisers acknowledged Tuesday that they were unprepared for the intraparty rift that occurred over the fate of a proposed public health insurance program, a firestorm that has left the White House searching for a way to reclaim the initiative on the president's top legislative priority. Administration officials insisted that they have not shied away from their support for a public option to compete with private insurance companies, an idea they said Obama still prefers to see in a final bill. But at a time when the president had hoped to be selling middle-class voters on how insurance reforms...

    There have been a number of seminal queries which our elders used to define game-changing moments in America’s cultural evolution. Where were you when JFK was shot? Where were you when Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon? For me, although it will likely wind up as a Trivial Pursuit bonus round question, one of the treasured turning points may well be: Where were you when Sarah Palin decided to commit political suicide? The odd thing is that I was up in the mountains, forcing myself into a period of decompression from the political theater. I likely wouldn’t have even...

    How did Obama manage to spend all his political capital so quickly? Did it all go on the stimulus bill? Wasn’t the whole point of bringing Rahm in as chief of staff that he could work constructively with Congress to pass an ambitious agenda? And isn’t Obama himself the first president since JFK to have entered the White House from the Senate? I’m not sure when everything went wrong here, but I fear that the damage is now irreparable — and that Obama’s agenda is going to be severely scaled back as a result. Our explanation is rather simple: Obama’s...

    BREAKING NEWS: Janeane Garofalo has showered By Hugh Ken Knott B. Sirius In a shocking turn of events, leftist comedienne/actress/activist Janeane Garofalo has showered and shampooed her hair. Sources tell us the diminutive Garofalo showered this morning, after friends grew tired of her strange body odor and perfume. “I told Janeane enough is enough. I said, girl, this is my shower. Shower, this is Janeane. I even let her use my baby’s body wash and shampoo because I thought that she might have a bad reaction after not showering for a while,” said 24 co-star and friend Mary Lynn Rajskub....

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska: Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will reimburse the state for a tenth trip taken by her children. The February 2007 trip to the start of the Iron Dog snowmachine race was mistakenly left out of an agreement announced this week to settle an ethics complaint with the Alaska Personnel Board. In that agreement, Palin will reimburse the state about $7,000 for nine trips taken by the children that were determined not to be in the state's best interest. For the tenth trip, Palin will reimburse the state for airfare from Juneau to Anchorage for her three daughters. The family...

    SOUTH LAKE TAHOE, Calif. — Federal agents raided a medical marijuana dispensary in South Lake Tahoe on Thursday. At about 11 a.m., five agents from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency — joined by members of the Bureau of Narcotic Enforcement, the South Lake Tahoe-El Dorado County Narcotics Enforcement Team and the South Lake Tahoe Police — served a federal search warrant on Patient to Patient Collective, located at 2314 Lake Tahoe Boulevard. Agents seized between five and 10 pounds of processed marijuana and a “small amount” of U.S. currency from the collective, said DEA Special Agent Gordon Taylor. Police made...

    She didn't charge as much as Ashley Dupre -- the call girl who cost Eliot Spitzer his job as New York governor. But authorities say Barbara Anderson Cohen did not come cheap. Cook County Sheriff's spokesman Steve Patterson said Cohen was busted on a prostitution charge Jan. 16 after she flew in from Las Vegas and agreed to have sex in a Loop hotel. Her price, $1,000 for two hours, was the highest rate of any of the 120 women arrested by the sheriff's office in stings over the last two years, Patterson said.
