LAT In 90 Seconds

The Take-Home Message of this Todd Martens Post: Thank G-d for bad beer. Otherwise, we might never hear good music.

Obama’s newsroom visit [to the Conway, N.H. Daily Sun] was marked by another oddity — the candidate was asked to autograph a refrigerator. Producing a magic marker, he complied, adding his name to those of Democrats Hillary Clinton, Bill Richardson and Chris Dodd and Republican Tom Tancredo.

The Sun intends to collect as many signatures from presidential aspirants on the appliance as possible during the buildup to the state’s primary. After the vote, the fridge will be auctioned on EBay, with proceeds donated to charity.”
