One more blogathon post and I’m taking a break for a couple hours to run errands. Use this thread to recommend music from musicians from Pennsylvania, Florida, Ohio, North Carolina, and maybe Indiana and Missouri. Indiana will be fun (Jackson family), but I’m less than convinced that they’re going to be close enough to break for Obama. And I want to celebrate states that could vote in the hope and awesome direction.

Jezebel decided to ask the ladies of the internets what they’d do if Palin miraculously ended up in the White House. Highly recommended. Here’s my comment:

Well, I suppose after a proper period of mourning, I would resign myself to having my hair done in a bouffant on occasion to make parody videos mocking Palin. But I’d have to learn to do it myself, because the novelty will wear off for my hairdresser in short order. I suspect, though, there won’t be much occasion to make fun of her, because she will disappear from sight after her usefulness to McCain has ended. She’ll spend more time in an undisclosed location than Dick Cheney, except that location will be disclosed and called “‘Wasilla.’”

Many of them are laugh-out-loud funny, so highly recommended.
