Following on the heels of The Daily Show's fantastic version of the Obama convention video profile (Barack Obama: He Completes Us), here is another brilliant contribution, this time for John McCain...n particular the part near the end that highlights the change from maverick reformer to reformed maverick:
John McCain: Reformed Maverick
I haven't noticed as many conservatives criticizing Obama's vacuous change mantra now that McCain has adopted it too.
I guess maybe what they're saying is, 'Watch out, George Bush. Except for economic policies, and tax policies, and energy policies, and healthcare policies, and education policies, and Karl Rove-style politics, except for all that, we're really going to bring change to Washington. We're going to shake things up.'
Near the house in Grand Haven is a nice park that we've gone to the last couple years. It has a nice fun zone as well as a field where we played football last year and this year played ultimate football. This year we also discovered a steep, sandy hill in the woods nearby that the boys enjoyed climbing. Here are some photos:
We spent last weekend with Lisa's family in Grand Haven. It was the third time that we've rented this house. One of its key features is the pool in the back yard. At some point in school Elliot had to identify his favorite place on earth, and this was it. He planned to get in the pool as soon as we arrived. Finn likes the pool too but was especially excited to sit in the Tiki Hut again, a bar area with a tv right next to the pool.
