The Nossiter Net is cast  to snare some of  the riper rascalities of the day.  Comments?  Send a letter to the editor.
The McCain campaign has a new program:  Just spread favorable McCain comments around the web, and you earn points leading to exciting prizes. Prizes such as a ride on the Dire Straits Express! It doesn't get any better than that. There's just one problem. The suggested favorable comments, or "talking points" to use the term of art, are extremely lame. One sample: John McCain has a comprehensive economic program. Yawn. The McCain camp needs much more exciting material to ignite the kind of grass roots fire they're aiming for. If the following items don't get me a ride with the McCain campaign, I'll be truly shocked:

The oily bird gets the worm. Oily to bed, oily to rise, makes a nation maybe unhealthy but wealthy if not wise. Drill everywhere, drill now, drill deep. Get your drills with John McCain.

That John McCain is a real pistol. He barbecues, addresses biker rallies, offers Cindy up in topless beauty contests, banters with babes like Paris Hilton, spends more on a pair of shoes than you make in a week. A real man, a he man, a man's man, a mano a mano kind of man, a true man-iac.

Some politicians talk out of both sides of their mouth. When McCain speaks, you know he's only using one side -- the other one doesn't work so well.

Sure he confuses Sunni with Shia. Yes he talks about a central European country that hasn't existed for fifteen years. Maybe he does mix up international borders and which heads of state represent what country. But can he ever cuss! Whoa, doggy. Just ask his Senate colleagues. You want a little salty language with your next president? Vote McCain.

John McCain, what a jokester. Have you heard his latest? "How many Iranians does it take to change a light bulb? None. After we bomb Iran, they won't have any electricity!"

Some high achievers put plaques on their wall. John McCain has plaque clogging his brain! So fight brain drain and vote McCain.

Why is John McCain a true patriot? Because what's good for Exxon and Lockheed, Chevron and General Dynamics, is good for America.

Just loved the willful ignorance, imbecile arrogance, murderous ineptitude, and relentless braggadocio of the Bush administration? Get four more years. Vote for John Sidney McCain, III.

John McCain – he's still breathing! And he's white.

A NOTE TO READERS ***Update***
Another three week plus hiatus, from April 30th until May 23rd, again due to Yahoo Geocities dismal service.

There was nothing new at The Nossiter Net between March 3rd and April 26th, 2007, nearly eight weeks.  The reason:  tech sabotage. Yahoo Geocities, the host for this site, denied access for the entire period.  At one point, they even managed to lose all the files.  In many discussions with Yahoo staff, no clear explanation was forthcoming.  No one seemed able to fix the problem.  Ruling out the possibility of Dubbya’s revenge, I finally wrote to Mr. Terry Semel, Chairman and CEO of Yahoo! Inc and described the ordeal the page had undergone since the beginning of March.  A week later, a helpful Yahooo engineer named Jason called.  He had my letter before him.  Though he couldn’t do the repairs on on the spot, he promised a fix by the next day.  That was April 26th, nearly two months after shutting me down in the first place.

The Nossiter Net apologizes, which is more than I can say for Yahoo Geocities.
