    The terrorist watchlist keeping us safe from people who are no danger to anyone. Excellence in government.

    So the bigfoot thing last week was a hoax? Bigfoot still lives!

    Sara: you are right. The terrorist list is a very funny and strange list. Obviously they just pull names out of a hat and put everyone with that name on the list, disregarding jobs, age, and everything else.

    On McCain in the Control Room
    I would have said something like,
    This doesn't look anything like PONG.

    That picture of McCain in the Control Room now explaines the high cost of fuels. LOL

    Funny and strange list...where from they have the names to put on the list? From some tweens like in SF movies -minority report? total recal??:)

    So...would the Abominable Snowman just be an albino bigfoot? Couldn't they just be the same animal...?

    I'm so glad I have a uncommon name!

    @MaryBeth, wow. now thats really bad. i had no idea. someone needs to fix this faulty system.

    They really need to clean up their act on the no fly list. It is getting out of control. Can you imagine how many Smith's there must be?

  15. Vicki

    I am horrified that you will be telling us that the BIGFOOT found was NOT the REAL one. Just think IT is still out there! YIKES! ha ha ha!!!

    How nice to know how easy it is for those who should be on the watch list to avoid it.

    I think Drew should of asked the parents if their kid was a terrorist–only the parents would know for sure. Let's see his report card with teacher's comments first.

  18. MaryBeth

    OMG! You really are a James Robinson? It MUST be a common name...how bizarre...is like...Joe Smith a common name? Do they just pick common names?

    August 19, 2008 at 10:48 pm |
  19. Sara

    Poor kid - gotta love this government!

    August 19, 2008 at 10:48 pm |
  20. MaryBeth

    So, is James Robinson a common terrorist name?

    August 19, 2008 at 10:46 pm |
  21. James Robinson

    Just for fun ... I am another James Robinson who must bew cleared before flying. I can't do web check-in or use a kiosk, even when I'm flying business on the airline I work for. I (like your pilot) have a badge that gives me access to all areas of the Airport Operations Area ... yet the TSA can't clear me.

    More irony – less than a 1/2 mile away lives another James Robinson with the same issues. The father of one of my daughter's friends.

    I feel safer. How about you?

    Any time I hear about the TSA and airport security, I can't help but recall the SNL episode where they were discussing TSA protocols with new recruits.

    Bigfoot's not true? Bummer.

    Biden would just make Obama look even more inexperienced. Like Biden should be running the show.

    @MaryBeth...I believed the big foot story. Then I took a closer look and realized it was Gary Tuchman stuck in an airport without a razor, between flights.

    Chris: children on the terrorist list aren't new. There's a 10 month old on the list.

    Very much enjoyed the two previews of the Revealed report

    Bigfoot isn't true? Nessie will be very disappointed.

    August 19, 2008 at 10:44 pm |
  29. James Dylan

    The eight year old terrorist? He looks like a Russian mole, "Uri" if you will. Watch out the pre-adolescents are taking over.

    August 19, 2008 at 10:44 pm |
  30. MaryBeth

    Did anyone seriously believe the bigfoot story? Honestly?

    August 19, 2008 at 10:43 pm |
  31. chris, Baltimore, md

    now they're putting children on the no fly list? whats going on in this country?

    August 19, 2008 at 10:43 pm |
  32. Jake

    @Shannon,
    Those are the only things I can find him supporting as well. The other thing he likes to run is Obama's "lack of experience". That is getting dull as well. His shorter time has brought a fresh perspective and new solutions to 25 year old problems.

    August 19, 2008 at 10:42 pm |
  33. Elaine

    McCain is running those ads so no one asks him the questions that matter. His policies. Everyone just keeps talking about his ads.

    August 19, 2008 at 10:41 pm |
  34. Mike, Syracuse, NY

    You can't go through what McCain went through and love war. Such characterizations are grossly unfair.

    Well, wouldn't it be a hoot if Al Gore were the guy for Barack?

    It seems from reading the blog, most folks think Biden would not be good. I think he would be a distinct help in the campaign. He's a tough fighter and Barack needs that. I thought for a long time that Hillary would be the pick, but that seems to be very unlikely now.

    McCain is making a good move right now, but Obama will come back especially when he reveals his VP.
