It was said that Enzo Ferrari cried when one of his cars beat an Alfa Romeo in a race. One of the finest auto makers in the world, A.L.F.A has been making cars since 1910, but in 1915 Nicola Romeo took over the company. Romeo started stopped making cars to produce munitions, aircraft engines, military hardware compressors and other components for the Italian and Allied forces. It wasn't until 1920 that the name of the company was changed to Alfa Romeo and put out their first successful vehicle the Torpedo 20-30 HP,
, after beating Enzo Ferrari on the Mugello Circuit.
Below is a new concept car for 2009
This week the struggling McCain campaign tried to liken Barack Obamas popularity to Britany Spears and Paris Hilton in a cheap add. Faux News continues in propaganda offensive, calling out Brack at any given opportunity, it does not seem to matter though, the Democrats are still leading in all polls. Nasty Nas and Colorofchange.org collected 620,000 signatures protesting Faux News racist coverage of the election. Heres good reason.
P.S Barack is still ahead in the latest polls, this time by more than ever, peep it.
Thanks to Dichotomous Mediocrity for the picture, good blog too.

Next month's cover of The New Yorker will feature a cartoon of Senator Barack Obama. Isn't that great! Only, Barack is dressed in traditional Muslim garb, giving a "terrorist fist" jab to Michelle who has an AK 47 slung around her shoulder, sporting an afro, with a picture of Osama Bin Laden on the wall and a flag burning the in fire in the oval office.
I think this is very offensive. Its a failed attempt at satire, that in turn contributes to the misconceptions a segment of public already has of Barack. We wont see a cartoon of Bush, Cheeny, Kissinger, McCain and other Illuminatists flipping through bill folds of cash, laughing while standing on a huge pile of dead bodies.

Mr Metaphor, Pumpkinhead, and Block McCloud make up the Park Slope Brooklyn crew, better known as Brooklyn Academy.
Peep the single feat. Jean Grae 'Raise Your Hands" from their forthcoming album "Bored of Education" out September 2.
In a small world story, the day I moved to New York, early January 2001, I stayed up all day on pure energy exploring and looking for a job. By 6 o'clock I was walking down 6th ave. when I see Pumpkinhead getting let out of a car. I catch up to him, telling him I had just seen he and the crew perform at the Comfort Zone in Toronto a few weeks earlier. He remembered the show and asked me what I was doing that night, "nothing" I responded, then he asked me if I wanted to go to the Lime light, which I didn't realize we were standing in front of. I said ya and we rolled passed the door man and the cover, Pumpkinhead cooling him out by saying I was with him. As soon as we got in he went his own way, but it was a cool thing to do for a fan.
(Good thing I still had half a fifth of Silent Sam in my knapsack, drinks were a mint, word.)

F*x News just wont lay up on the propaganda, check out Neil Cavuto asking Senator Obama to dumb it down, if its not persistent Muslim reference, its the newest home loan shit. Where Fox leaves off, the always reliable Wall St Journal picks up, saying that Obama is more likely to continue Bush's third term, than MCcain.
Either way Barack is still ahead in the polls.
