Ayers and Wright occupy the same room at the same time, conservative space-time continuum collapses

November 10th, 2008 · 1 Comment

The conservative movement was destroyed today in a spectacular implosion of anti-matter particles and right-wing talking points, as former domestic terrorist Bill Ayers walked into an auditorium at Northwestern University at the exact same time that Reverend Jeremiah Wright was giving a keynote address to the university’s black student union: The diverse crowd featured a large number of students, [...]

Known [...]

SNL: McCain-Palin infomercial airs on QVC

November 2nd, 2008 · No Comments

In case you missed it, John McCain and Tina Fey were hilarious last night on Saturday Night Live. It’s amazing how well McCain can control his facial expressions whenever Barack Obama isn’t in the room. SNL does qualify as free media, but I’m not sure if it’s the best use of McCain’s time three days [...]

Barack Obama and Sarah Palin blow stuff up in new video game

November 1st, 2008 · 2 Comments

(via Kotaku) If for some reason you are standing up while surfing the Internet, you should go ahead and sit down right now.  Because this is probably the coolest thing you’ll ever see. Cashing in on election fever, EA today announced that, as part of an upcoming update for Mercenaries 2, both Sarah Palin and [...]

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 [...]

McCain-Palin tough on terror, except against American doctors

October 25th, 2008 · No Comments

This is one of the more remarkable pieces of video I’ve seen this campaign cycle.  Earlier this week, Brian Williams asked Sarah Palin if an abortion clinic bomber qualifies as a terrorist, under her definition of the word.  First, she filibustered with some nonsense about Bill Ayers, then gave her actual, astonishing answer: “I don’t [...]

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, [...]

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 [...]

Muslims: pro-American Americans, real Americans

October 20th, 2008 · 10 Comments

In the midst of his endorsement of Barack Obama yesterday, Colin Powell made some remarks about the religious bigotry of some McCain/Palin supporters– including GOP officials– that I would like to strongly associate myself with: Is there something wrong with being a Muslim in this country? The answer is no. That’s not America. Is there something [...]

Sarah Palin (sort of) rocks SNL’s world

October 19th, 2008 · No Comments

Nothing to write home about, but Sarah Palin’s appearance last night on Saturday Night Live definitely passed the funny test. To be honest, the first skit seemed a little uncomfortable, watching the SNL cast making some pretty hard-hitting jokes at her expense while she basically stood around and nodded. You kind of wondered what Palin [...]

Biden and Palin: So many feet, so few mouths

October 17th, 2008 · No Comments

VP candidates Joe Biden and Sarah Palin continue their wildly entertaining gaffe-a-thon on the stump this week. First, Palin is apparently one of those U.S. Americans that can’t locate the New Hampshire on a map. She tells a New Hampshire crowd that she likes visiting there and ”other parts around this great Northwest” and promptly gets booed. [...]

Troopergate report vindicates Palin, say voices in her head

October 14th, 2008 · 1 Comment

I thought Bush was bad.  He is bad.  He’s God awful.  But Sarah Palin is straight out of 1984.  Apparently, her response to the Troopergate report this weekend was to say that it vindicated her and found no unethical or unlawful behavior on her part.  This is despite the report plainly and explicity saying that her behavior was both unethical and unlawful, and despite every [...]

Sarah Palin not greeted as liberator at hockey game in Philly

October 13th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Whichever McCain staffer thought up the idea of sending Sarah Palin to a hockey game in Philly to drop the puck should be fired. No questions asked, no excuses. This might have been the easiest call in sports/politics history. I mean, in the middle of a heated campaign, you’re sending a Republican with sky-high negatives, [...]

When vetting your VP over the phone goes wrong

October 11th, 2008 · 1 Comment

For future reference, the next time McCain runs a presidential campaign and needs to distance himself from Bush and Cheney, he might not want to pick a folksy, incurious, oil maven, who’s being investigated by an ethics committee for abusing her power. In honor of yesterday’s long-anticipated Troopergate report, and Sarah Palin officially taking her place as the worst vice [...]
