cranky_editors is deeply funny in a mildly NSFW way

Republican insiders caught by hot mic: Race is over — Oops, conservatives being honest with each other. Who’d a thunk it?

Absence of Bush and Cheney cheers Republican delegates — Hahahahahahahahahahaha.

The Edge of the American West on media coverage of black delegates at the GOP convention — Your Liberal Media focused on about 16 African-American delegates during the broadcast of Giuliani’s speech. That’s 16 out of a total of 36 African-American delegates to a convention of 1,790 delegates.

Peggy Noonan has explained why "it's over" was taken out of context and doesn't mean what you think it means.

Does anyone know exactly what Cheney did after canceling his appearance at the convention because of Hurricane Gustav. As far as I know, he did not go to Texas with Bush, nor anywhere in the Gulf region. I think he just went back home.
