      Everyone remember the Panama papers? A leak of bank records showing that the ultra-rich are hiding massive wealth, tax-free and often breaking the law to do so? A rather weak set of laws designed to allow tax avoidance by rich people, at that. Found out the other day that the reporter who broke the Panama Papers story was killed by a car bomb. Coincidence, n […]

Saturday: The Battle for First Seven Year Old

Piper “Snow Princess” Palin redistributes her candy wealth:

Sasha Obama not quite so crowd friendly (H/T BreitBart):

AP: Democrat Barack Obama got annoyed with the media Friday as he tried to walk down a Chicago street with his 7-year-old daughter, Sasha, who was dressed up in a shiny costume for Halloween. A pool of national photographers, reporters and a video crew traveling with Obama quickly covered the spontaneous moment. “All right guys, that’s enough,” said Obama, wearing a casual outfit and sunglasses in the early evening. He and his daughter were walking right toward the media on a public street. “You got a shot,” he told the photographers. “Leave us alone. Come on, guys.”

Hmmm, this one is close.  They’re both cute as buttons.  But I’m going to give the edge to Piper.  The camera loves her.

I am waiting for the last kid to go home so I can get out of here and get on the road to Scranton, PA where I hope to meet up with Harriet Christian and her posse from Manhattan.  Someone needs to document the event.  Moi!

In the meantime, here is a wrap of interesting stuff from around the web:

  • Anglachel (we need to forgive) has an ominous post about discrimination of women in the workplace based on pregnancy in Reproduction of Culture.  We really don’t want to go down this road but I don’t see Obama’s present slash and burn campaign tactics as being conducive to a more female friendly work environment.  The misogyny genie has been released.  Not good.  Not good at all.
  • Zogby reports that in the latest 3-day tracking poll, McCain outpolled Obama by 48% to 47%.  It’s Zogby, so take it with a grain of salt.  Still, veddy interesting…
  • Joseph Cannon explores Obama’s murky past, his friendships with wealthy Pakistanis and his possible ties with the CIA.  Where *did* all that money come from when he was in college?  Was he working for the CIA?  Of course, that is probably not what happened.  I mean, the only people I knew who hung around with Pakistanis back then were selling hash, not hanging with the spooks. (Spooks in this case meaning CIA operatives.  Jeez, you have to clarify *everything* these days.)  But when it comes to conspiracies about the CIA or conspiracies about selling hash, both are just entertaining thought experiments.  Probably neither of them true.  Probably.

“We’re not ones to go around spreading rumors.  No, really we’re just not the gossiping kind.  You’ll never hear one of us repeating gossip.  So, you’d better be sure to listen close the first time.”

One more thing: I lifted this from PUMAPac, but I don’t think murphy minds.  I love the shot of Toulouse, France.  I went there last year on business and it’s beautiful.  The buildings are made of rose colored brick so they call it the pink city.
