SpaceSquid's Intertubes Awards #1

The winner of today's "Bitchy Political Snark" award goes to Attaturk of Rising Hegemon.
The Republican presidential nominee from Arizona landed at the Columbia Regional Airport around 12:30 p.m. As McCain disembarked from the plane, a man yelled, "Go get 'em, John."...

A crowd of about 15 people assembled outside the airport's fence to see him descend from the plane.
First of all, you don't report a crowd of "about 15", when there are 15 people there, you've got time to count.
Well deserved, I think you'll agree.

Honorable mention: Dave Noon of Lawyers, Guns and Money.
On the tarmac, Palin also referred to robocalls as “inside baseball,” suggesting it was not her call for the campaign to randomly call voters with negative attacks on Obama. “If I called all the shots, and if I could wave a magic wand, I would be sitting at a kitchen table with more and more Americans … and not having to rely on the old conventional ways of campaigning that includes those robocalls and includes spending so much money on the television ads that I think is kinda draining out there in terms of Americans' attention span,” she said.
Speaking merely for myself, I've never heard a stronger rationale for eliminating the very idea of a kitchen.
Next week, an award for the most imaginative use of the word "fuck" whilst describing the credit-crunch.
