Monday Morning Linkfest

Here are a bunch of links with limited commentary. Obviously, with the election winding down the articles are mostly related to tomorrow's election.

Stanley Kurtz, who did more investigative reporting on Sen. Obama than anyone, has an article titled: What We Know About Obama. A good review.

Obama’s No Kennedy is an article by Deroy Murdock discussing former Robert Kennedy aide Bartle Bull speaking for Sen. McCain at a rally this past weekend. On that note, I wonder how many of Obama's supporters in the Kennedy clan are aware that Obama pal Bill Ayers dedicated his first book to Sirhan Sirhan. For anyone unaware, Sirhan is the nut who shot and killed Bobby Kennedy in 1968.

Burt Prelutsky pens America's Last Will and Testament. Read the whole thing, but here is a snippet I really liked:
It occurs to me that politicians continue, as a matter of P.R., to refer themselves as public servants. They are the only servants in the history of mankind to not only make more money than their masters, but are the ones who insist on giving all the orders.

What's the secret behind Palin's appeal? I think it is simpler than the article indicates. She is popular because she is authentic.

The "No Kidding, Sherlock" headline of the day: Ohio Coal Association Says Obama Remarks Make It Clear: Obama Ticket Not Supportive of Coal. So, you don't buy Obama's claim that he was taken out of context when he pledged to use cap and trade emissions fines to bankrupt coal plant?

Howie Carr gives us Five reasons to vote against Obama. Just five Howie? Come on I know you can do better than that.

Early voting is a big mistake. I realize it existed in some states prior to this cycle, but it seems to have gotten worse (or maybe just gotten more attention) this election. I was going to do a lengthy post pertaining to this problem, however Tom Blumer at BizzyBlog saved me the trouble with his post titled: Early Voting Is a Travesty!

Endorsement posts coming later today.
