Blame the messenger…

In an attempt to defend Collins’ comments, his spokesman, Michael McAdams, tried to blame The Buffalo News.

“Once again The Buffalo News is twisting a Republican’s words to fit its out-of-touch, liberal narrative,” McAdams said, according to the publication. “Congressman Collins has been intimately involved in the creation of this legislation from its inception… He understands the impact it would have on Western New Yorkers. To infer Congressman Collins doesn’t understand the disastrous impact Obamacare has had on our region and our nation is absolutely shameful.”

Did Little Bobby Tables migrate to Sweden?

As you may have heard, we’ve had a very close election here in Sweden. Today the Swedish Election Authority published the hand written votes. While scanning through them I happened to notice

R;13;Hallands län;80;Halmstad;01;Halmstads västra valkrets;0904;Söndrum 4;pwn DROP TABLE VALJ;1

The second to last field1 is the actual text on the ballot2. Could it be that Little Bobby Tables is all grown up and has migrated to Sweden? Well, it’s probably just a joke but even so it brings questions since an SQL-injection on election data would be very serious.

Someone even tried to get some JavaScript in there:

R;14;Västra Götalands län;80;Göteborg;03;Göteborg, Centrum;0722;Centrum, Övre Johanneberg;(Script src=http://hittepa.webs.com/x.txt);1

I’m pleased to see that they published the list as text and not HTML

  1. Easy enough to add left right facing marks though.

Every Republican who voted for this abomination must be held accountable

I won’t mince words. The health-care bill that the House of Representatives passed this afternoon, in an incredibly narrow 217-to-213 vote, is not just wrong, or misguided, or problematic or foolish. It is an abomination. If there has been a piece of legislation in our lifetimes that boiled over with as much malice and indifference to human suffering, I can’t recall what it might have been. And every member of the House who voted for it must be held accountable.

Video: Cassini’s first Grand Finale dive over Saturn

Cassini’s series of ‘Grand Finale’ dives by Saturn continues to mesmerize us. In the above video, you’ll first see a ‘Cassini-eye-view’ of the surface of Saturn whizzing by, starting with the swirling north pole of Saturn. But it doesn’t stop there, as NASA/JPL-Caltech also shows you a three dimensional simulation of exactly where the probe is as it’s capturing the images.

  1. That’s so Canadian 🙂

All of the Netherlands was silent for 2 minutes today to remember victims of war. This dominoes delivery boy stopped in the middle of the streets

  1. That’s very touching.

    BTW, if anyone has any cash to spare, there’s an appeal for South Sudan.
