The Worst Candidate Websites

Cracked.com has a review of the candidates’ websites, including “awkward attempts at hipness” and “weirdest moments.” John McCain’s virtual outpost, for example, won this critique: “The main image from the pre-site landing page essentially says, ‘Welcome to the online obituary for the late Senator John McCain.’ ”

Not So Fast, Putin

For years the North Pole has been considered international territory, and that seemed to suit everyone just fine until global warming came along, making it theoretically easier to extract oil and gas from the region.

Gingrich and His Crazy Ideas

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich thinks the road to the White House is longer and stranger than ever—and he ought to be concerned, considering he’s rumored to be joining the other candidates on that road soon.  “These aren’t debates,” the Georgia Republican groused to CNN, comparing the recent debates to a cross between “The Bachelor,” “American Idol” and “Are You Smarter Than a Fifth-Grader.”
