“Apple is publicly opposing Proposition 8 and making a donation of $100,000 to the No on 8 campaign. Apple was among the first California companies to offer equal rights and benefits to our employees’ same-sex partners, and we strongly believe that a person’s fundamental rights — including the right to marry — should not be affected by their sexual orientation. Apple views this as a civil rights issue, rather than just a political issue, and is therefore speaking out publicly against Proposition 8.”—Apple Hot News (via John Gruber) (via marco)
“It may have seemed audacious for Obama to start his campaign in Springfield, invoking Lincoln. We think, given the opportunity to hold this nation’s most powerful office, he will prove it wasn’t so audacious after all. We are proud to add Barack Obama’s name to Lincoln’s in the list of people the Tribune has endorsed for president of the United States.”—From the Chicago Tribune’s editorial endorsing Barack Obama for President. They haven’t endorsed a Democrat since they were founded in 1847. Obama has endorsements from 51 newspapers to date, which is three times as many as McCain. (via election08)
“Here’s what I don’t get. McCain makes a virtue out of going against his party, and asks how many times Obama’s gone against his party, yes? Why didn’t Obama just say, “Well, I didn’t have to. I’m not in THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.”—Twitter / warrenellis (via pberry)
“John McCain has pulled out of Michigan, I guess the surge wasn’t working. Yep, this is stunning to me. John McCain blew off Michigan. Well, I know how they feel. I know how they feel. Maybe you noticed that all of John McCain’s problems began when he bailed out on this show, were you aware of that? The road to the White House runs right through here.”—My scoring is something like Letterman 5, McCain 0 at this point.
