October surprise! Proof Obama is a Marxist!!!

October 28th, 2008 · 2 Comments

This photo, which proves once and for all that Barack Obama is a Marxist, was leaked to Fox News today by an unknown source: Shortly thereafter, exactly one-third of the cable news channels and ten percent of the political blogosphere was buzzing over this devastating development for the Obama campaign a mere seven days before the election: [...]

McCain campaign running on empty platitudes

October 28th, 2008 · No Comments

The McCain campaign’s final (official, non-race-baiting) pitch to America frames the choice in 2008, and there isn’t a concrete idea to be found: People are losing their homes and their life savings, and what is McCain offering? “Workin’ Joes.” What is that, a sandwich?

Conservative blogger blames McCain’s impending loss on the Obama cult

October 27th, 2008 · No Comments

Mark Levin at The Corner gets all his excuses lined up a week and a half early sounds a dire warning about America’s surrender to the “cult-like atmosphere around Barack Obama… The messiah complex.” I’ve been thinking this for a while so I might as well air it here. I honestly never thought we’d see such a [...]

Palin spent more on hair and makeup than on a college education

October 26th, 2008 · 1 Comment

From the Department of Qualifications and Priorities:  In the first two weeks of October, Sarah Palin spent more on hair and makeup– over $32,000– than she did on her entire college education (a four-school, six-year bachlor’s degree in communications-journalism).  The New York Times reports: Who was the highest paid individual in Senator John McCain’s presidential campaign during the first half [...]

Conservative FAIL: Joe Biden defends “Socialist/Marxist” Obama against right-wing reporter

October 26th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Yesterday, Joe Biden walked right into an ambush when a local reporter, Barbara West from W(T)FTV in Orlando, Florida, suddenly morphed into Sean Hannity.  In a brief five-minute interview, West took the opportunity to hammer Biden with the following fair and balanced questions: –Aren’t you embarrassed by the blatant attempts to register phony voters by ACORN, [...]

McCain campaign gets caught exploiting mentally ill volunteer

October 25th, 2008 · 3 Comments

That’s the headline.  That’s how badly this story has spiraled out of control for the McCain campaign. First, Greg Sargent at TPM broke the story yesterday that the McCain campaign was directly involved in fabricating details of Ashley Todd’s fake robbery and assault story:  John McCain’s Pennsylvania communications director told reporters in the state an incendiary version of the [...]

Will Ferrell and Tina Fey endorse the Bush-McCain-Palin ticket on SNL

October 24th, 2008 · 3 Comments

Will Ferrell never did the best Bush impression, but this skit from last night’s Saturday Night Live is hilarious. You get the feeling that if Bush really did do a nationally televised address to publicly and emphatically endorse John McCain, it would go something like this: “When you think of John McCain, think of me, [...]

Attack on McCain supporter could hurt Obama in Pennsylvania [OCTOBER SURPRISE UPDATE: She lied!!!]

October 24th, 2008 · 5 Comments

Yesterday, the blogosphere was buzzing over the latest story to give the race-baiting Matt Drudge a furious erection.  A black man in a sketchy neighborhood in Pittsburgh robbed Ashley Todd, 20, an out-of-town Southern white woman– who also happened to be a McCain volunteer– at knifepoint. According to Todd, the man then became enraged when he [...]

Muslim McCain supporters stay and fight Republican Party intolerance

October 23rd, 2008 · 1 Comment

(h/t warner) “All that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.” – Edmund Burke For whatever reason, John McCain refuses to openly denounce and distance himself from the bigotry at his rallies. When confronted about it by Bob Schieffer in the final debate, McCain stated: Let me just say [...]

McCain agrees to disagree agreeably with Pennsylvania voters

October 23rd, 2008 · 2 Comments

This video is outrageously entertaining– the feel good gaffe of the year. I love how McCain commits the initial gaffe, but then his attempted save makes the situation twice as bad. And then rather than stop, he just surrenders to a tornado of nonsensical Palinesque phrasing that eventually leads him back to the teleprompter. Classic.

Palin’s $150,000 wardrobe bill not really that much

October 23rd, 2008 · 3 Comments

A lot of people are furious over yesterday’s revelation that the McCain campaign spent $150,000 of RNC donor money to clothe and accessorize Sarah Palin and her family in just seven weeks on the campaign trail.  Small donors in particular were upset to learn that that $100 contribution they scraped together and sent to John McCain paid for less than one [...]

Michelle Obama proud she’s never stolen drugs from charity

October 22nd, 2008 · No Comments

I’m so sick and tired of Cindy McCain on the campaign trail saying– with a snarky smile on her face– “I’ve always been proud of my country.”  It’s fine to say you’re proud of your country, but when you emphasize “always” like that, we all know what you’re referring to, Cindy.  I know you insist that [...]

McCain campaign attacks similar to those that killed JFK

October 22nd, 2008 · No Comments

On November 22, 1963, the day President John F. Kennedy was shot and killed, these leaflets were being handed out on the streets of Dallas: Today, in 2008, these mailers are being sent to households across America by John McCain: Do we even need to discuss the plane imagery– a deliberate and visceral link to 9/11? I’ve already written in [...]

Begala and Carville hop on the Overconfidence Express

October 21st, 2008 · 2 Comments

It’s one thing for me and my nobody blog to declare “Mission Accomplished” a few weeks early.  It’s another thing when Team Clinton hops on board the Overconfidence Express.  Paul Begala and James Carville– easily the two most entertaining political strategists out there– took the opportunity today on Huffington Post to taunt the Republican Party on its impending loss: [...]
