Mediaite has found one person who isn’t worried about the debt ceiling crisis: Sarah Palin! The former governor seems to believe the problem is overblown, calling it “more Obama drama” in an interview with Greta van Susteren. Uh, interesting take? To watch the clip of the interview clickhere.
Geekosystem has a video of a dog chasing another dog over a hedge — well, almost over a hedge. The clip is a little over-edited, what with the slow motion and “REPLAY” flashing in the bottom right corner of the screen, but it’s hard to stay mad at it. It’s a dog crashing into a hedge. Watch ithere.

This showcase will be temperature- and humidity- controlled. It’ll be a mini-Fort Knox, impossible to open.” Sounds reasonable. Get the full post here.
