Warren Buffett quotes Wayne Gretzky & other stuff

Warren Buffett quotes Wayne Gretzky to explain why he’s buying lots U.S. stocks right now.

And Buffett, an Obama supporter, might be one of the few people left in America still in a strong enough financial position to afford to shell out $15 million for copies Sarah Palin’s official emails.


Meanwhile, here are video links to McCain and Obama roasting themselves and each other at a dinner in NYC last night. A sampling:

Obama: “Contrary to the rumors you may have heard, i was not actually born in a manger, i was actually born on Krypton and sent here by my father Jor-El to save the Earth.”

McCain: “I can’t shake the feeling that some people here are voting for me,” McCain said. “Nice to see you, Hillary.”


Today the Washington Post editorial board (the one that supported the Iraq war) today endorsed Obama for president and the conservative (“conservative”?) columnist David Brooks at the NYT gave him a long wet-kiss.

Despite Matt Drudge’s fondest hopes, the polls are still looking good for Obama, who has McCain on the defense spending time and money in such formerly safe red states as Virginia and North Carolina (which last voted for a Democratic president when Southerner Jimmy Carter ran.)


The Globe and Mail notes that if the Democrats sweep the Congress they will do so by electing more “Blue Dog” (conservative-ish) Democrats from red states. Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal looks at the same scenario and sees a coming left-wing apocalypse.

And a reader on Andrew Sullivan’s blog notes some legit reasons for John McCain to be mad at Obama.
