Paul Newman dead

Really sad news about a good liberal who surely wanted to know what will happen this November.

Well, this news just sucks. Paul Newman, dead at 83.

What a great actor and super liberal. Shame that Cool Hand Luke will not be around to see what happens this November. He would have loved to see Obama win, I'm sure.
