Start of the Week

Reader, what a great weekend. Loyal WA Reader was visiting for another friends' 50th birthday which had to be the most fun I've had in a long time. Lots of friends, cocktails and dancing. Made me realize, as I woke up the next morning with sore feet, I need to do that more often.

It was also a great weekend politically. As you've no doubt heard, Colin Powell publicly spanked the Republican party by endorsing Barack Obama. Ever since the White House delivered him to what he described as "the lowest point in my life," leading the country into war based on an inaccurate White House-provided document outlining Iraq's weapons of mass destruction, things have never been the same between Powell and the Republican party. Good on Colin Powell for saying enough's enough.

In an additional boost for Obama, his campaign pulled in a record-breaking $150 million for the month of September.

Then of course Sarah Palin was on SNL:

But the best part of SNL that night was Adele. Until then I had never heard of her but she's a Brit in the soulful-beyond-her-years vein of Amy Winehouse. Hopefully she won't go down in the flames of self-destruction because she was fantastic. Here's the video for Cold Shoulder:
