The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

None of the Above

Per Nate Silver, of The New York Times, suggests it might still be too early to tell who will be the Republican Nominee for President in 2012.  His piece is here.
Two of my favorite analysts, Rhodes Cook and Josh Putnam, have a good debate going about just how plausible it is that a Republican who is not currently running for president could enter the race later and potentially win it (probably necessitating a brokered convention).  Those of you who follow my Twitter feed will know that I think Mr. Cook has the stronger side of the argument; I think there is a small but nontrivial chance that the Republican nominee could be someone like Jeb Bush, Paul Ryan, Mitch Daniels, Tim Pawlenty or Chris Christie.  (In fact, I was speculating about these scenarios as long as a month ago.)
As they say, it ain't over 'til the fat lady sings.

it is my belief that were Paul Ryan to declare himself a candidate....he'd win both the primary and the Nov 2012 election...hands down running.

But he won't because in spite of all the public rhetoric, America is not serious about the needed change in order to survive. Things haven't gotten bad enough yet.....
