First Outage of the New Year

Just in time to avoid the inauguration, TalkLeft is down. It's not intentional though, and I hope it's back up shortly.

TalkLeft Server is Down

It got overloaded. You can comment here until we are back up.

Update: Actually, the site was moved to new server hardware and they are having issues with the move. Hopefully it will be back up soon.

Server is Down

TalkLeft's server is down. Hopefully it will be back up tomorrow. If you'd like to comment, here's a place.

I was going to respond to a comment about Rick Perry giving up cowboy boots in tonight's open thread.

Ronald Reagan wore cowboy boots to a debate with Jimmy Carter in 1980.

Other presidential contenders who wore cowboy boots during debates or on the campaign trail:

Barack Obama, Rudy Giuliani, and Fred Thompson, have already shown a willingness to identify with the cowboy by donning cowboy hats and/or boots on the campaign trail

Al Gore wore cowboy boots to a debate with Bill Bradley in 1999.

Perry's bootmaker also made boots for Bill Clinton and Bush I.

If Perry thinks cowboy boots cost him the debate or nomination, he has a very unbecoming personality trait -- failure to accept personal responsibility.
