Who are the REAL North Americans?

BBC News – Old American theory is ‘speared’ http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science-environment-15391388

In truth, the “Clovis first” model, which holds to the idea that America’s original human population swept across a land-bridge from Siberia some 13,000 years ago, has looked untenable for some time. A succession of archaeological finds right across the United States and northern Mexico have indicated there was human activity much earlier than this -perhaps as early as 15-16,000 years ago. The mastodon rib, however, really leaves the once cherished model with nowhere to go.

Turns out we aren’t quite sure.

Why Romney will get the Republican nomination and lose handily to Obama

Video version here…

Suffice it to say…the Republican primary pool is exceedingly shallow, and the President (who killed Osama bin Laden mind you) has a long track record of *at least trying*.   While many partisan Republicans give him no credit for this, and blame Obama for Bush’s economic catastrophe, most people do not, and like the hyperbolic attacks on Bush that failed to land in 2004, they will fail to land on Obama in 2012, as the Republicans nominate their very own John Kerry, who will lose handily to Obama in about a year’s time.

UPDATE: D’oh, accidentally left the video as private.  Fixed that.
