Senator John McCain retracted Sarah Palin's stance on Pakistan Sunday morning after the Alaska governor appeared to back Barack Obama's support for unilateral strikes inside Pakistan against terrorists. "She would not ...she understands and has stated repeatedly that we're not going to do anything except in America's national security interest," McCain told ABC's George Stephanopoulos of Palin. " In all due respect, people going around and... sticking a microphone while conversations are being held, and then all of a sudden that's --that's a person's position... this is a free country, but I don't think most Americans think that's a definitive policy statement by Governor Palin."
Saturday night while on a stop for cheesesteaks in South Philadelphia, Palin was questioned by a Temple graduate student about whether the U.S. should cross the border from Afganistan into Pakistan.
"If that is what we have to do to stop the terrorists from coming any further in, absolutely, we should." Palin said.
During Friday's night presidential debate, Obama tood a similar stance, condemning the Bush administration for failing to act on the possibility terrorists are in Pakistan.
McCain emphasized Sunday, Palin "shares" his view on the manner.

Madder Dogs: Speaking of which, it seems even pit bulls have begun to rally against the world's most dangerous hockey mom. (Snuzzy)
Revisiting 'Laramie': In case you missed it last week, there was a great piece in The Times about the Tectonic Theater Company's return to Laramie, Wyo., 10 years after Matthew Shepard's murder: Their goal "is to use new interviews with real-life characters in 'The Laramie Project' not only to write an epilogue to this frequently performed play, but also to explore whether the past decade has brought any change in Laramie, its citizens and its attitudes toward gay people."

·If you grow up in Hawaii, raised by your grandparents, you're 'exotic, different.'
·Grow up in Alaska eating mooseburgers, a quintessential American story.
·If your name is Barack you're a radical, unpatriotic Muslim.
·Name your kids Willow, Trig and Track, you're a maverick.
·Graduate from Harvard law School and you are unstable.
·Attend 5 different small colleges before graduating, you're well grounded.
·If you spend 3 years as a brilliant community organizer, become the
first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter
registration drive that registers 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as
a Constitutional Law professor, spend 8 years as a State Senator
representing a district with over 750,000 people, become chairman of the
state Senate's Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years in the
United States Senate representing a state of 13 million people while
sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs,
Environment and Public Works and Veteran's Affairs committees, you don't
have any real leadership experience.
·If your total resume is: local weather girl, 4 years on the city
council and 6 years as the mayor of a town with less than 7,000 people,
20 months as the governor of a state with only 650,000 people, then
you're qualified to become the country's second highest ranking executive..
·If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising 2
beautiful daughters, all within protestant churches, you're not a real Christian.
·If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, and left your
disfigured wife and married the heiress the next month, you're a Christian.
·If you teach responsible, age appropriate sex education, including the
proper use of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of society.
·If , while governor, you staunchly advocate abstinence only, with no
other option in sex education in your state's school system while your
unwed teen daughter ends up pregnant , you're very responsible.
·If your wife is a Harvard graduate lawyer who gave up a position in a
prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner city
community, then gave that up to raise a family, your family's values
don't represent America's.
·If your husband is nicknamed 'First Dude', with at least one DWI
conviction and no college education, who didn't register to vote until
age 25 and once was a member of a group that advocated the secession
of Alaska from the USA, your family is extremely admirable.
OK, much clearer now.

Tina Fey & Amy Poehler as Gov. Palen & Sen. Clinton on Saturday Night Live
Now the Republicans say that the portrayal was "sexist". But of course, only sexist in respect to Palin...or as I prefer to say, the Antichrist!
Under the one-year pact, O'Loughlin will star in a new series project for CBS that will be developed by top TV producer Mark Gordon, whose ABC Studio-based company is behind such series as ABC's "Grey's Anatomy," Lifetime's "Army Wives" and CBS' "Criminal Minds."
O'Loughlin rose to prominence this past season as vampire PI Mick St. John on CBS' "Moonlight." He helped attract a passionate fan base to the ill-fated freshman drama, which was canceled in May. At the Television Critics Assn. press tour in July, CBS entertainment president Nina Tassler credited the show's intense fan appeal to the actor.
Under the new deal with CBS, he also will be able to pitch theatrical projects to CBS Films.
O'Loughlin, who next appears in the feature "Whiteout," is repped by ICM and June Cann Management

Another killing in Bon Temps finds Jason back in custody with officers Andy (Chris Bauer) and Bud (William Sanderson).

Later, Bill demonstrates his own considerable powers when an abusive patrolman stops the couple on their way home.
