Google Labs has come out with a great new feature called "In Quotes"
Pick two people (say, Obama and MCain) and a topic (eg, Iraq or the economy); then read what each has to say on the issue. Build your own head-to-head debate! For extra fun, pick the same candidate, but two different years: see if/how his tune has changed...
P.S. Today's little bit of joy: spellchecking this post and getting to click "ignore all" on McCain
P.P.S. NaNoWriMo count: 3500 words
