Collin Powell, that left-wing socialist un-American loon has done it again. On Palin: I don’t believe she’s ready to be president of the United States, which is the job of the vice president On the rat-bastard Republicans: I’m also troubled by, not what Senator McCain says, but what members of the party say. And it [...]
McCain thinks he can scumbag his way into office. Norm Coleman apparently thinks the same thing. When will they learn? Those scary ads about how scary the other guy is with wolves howling and facts set aside for sensationalistic lies DO NOT WORK.
From The Political Animal: If you want the next four years looking just like the last eight, then I am not your candidate. But if you want real change – if you want an economy that rewards work, and that works for Main Street and Wall Street; if you want tax relief for the middle [...]
A friend sent me this. We’ve all seen that Palin clip by now. I think it is maybe the first time that SNL was able to use a quote word for word and have it be absolutely hilarious. Jack is mad and he should be. I would forgive Palin for having one bad moment. We [...]
Palin is a liability to McCain and the US of A. She is the intellectual equivalent of George W. Bush. She is not educated, not informed, not intellectually curious, not quick on her feet and completely inappropriate for the job of President. It has nothing to do with her being a woman. I’m glad that [...]
Let’s see, a high-level recap of the things that happened under the Republicans over the last 8 years: 1. 9/11 2. Katrina 3. The credit crisis 4. The closely related housing crisis 5. Iraq 6 Afghanistan 7. $4 gas Now the government just nationalized Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac — another example of deregulation at [...]
Let’s give him a break, he’s old after all. Really old. Like approaching the average life expectancy old (which is 77.8 years). But his speech last night was confusing as hell. I can’t sum it up better than this article from the Guardian: At the biggest moment of his political career, he delivered a flat, [...]
(That is an embed from CNN, we’ll see if it works.) It’s funny (but painful) to see CNN actually ask and demand answers to hard questions. The McCain campaign has no answer as to why they have a different standard for Sarah Palin than they do for Barak Obama when it comes to the necessary [...]
McCain’s nomination of Palin as his VP is very interesting. First of all, the Republicans don’t know what to think. They were not very happy about it at first, but they must have gotten their marching orders because they are coming around. Republicans are weird, though. Take, for example, this quote: Palin brings traditional political [...]
The Minnesota Independent has a fairly damning summary of Sarah Palin. The worst part is she seems to favor teaching creationism along side evolution: The volatile issue of teaching creation science in public schools popped up in the Alaska governor’s race this week when Republican Sarah Palin said she thinks creationism should be taught alongside [...]
From Political Radar: “What Senator McCain neglected to mention was that during those thirty years, he was in Washington for twenty-six of them. And in all that time, he did little to reduce our dependence on foreign oil,” Obama said. “So when Senator McCain talks about the failure of politicians in Washington to do anything [...]
Let’s ask 2 questions: 1. In retrospect, was it a good idea to invade Iraq? 2. Given that we are in Iraq, what is the best course of action? My answers: 1) Of course not. It represents a complete failure of foreign policy. This is universally agreed upon with the exception of the ultra-wacko-wing of [...]
We have 2 good presidential candidates in Barack Obama and John McCain. I like John McCain more than I ever liked Bush and I like Barack Obama better than either Al Gore or John Kerry. These are two good candidates and two good men. Now it’s inevitable that the extremists in either party will sling [...]
I really can’t add much to this article at the Minnesota Monitor: Rightwing blogs decry Obama’s meeting with imam Bush kissed except to try to point attention to it.
I have a challenge for conservatives and middle of the road Republicans — give Obama a chance. Just give the man a chance. John “Bush 3.0″ McCain represents nothing more than a minor tweaking to Bush’s policies on Iraq and the economy. When you find yourself in a hole, stop digging. I know the far right could never vote for Obama but many of you that voted for Bush and were disappointed owe it to yourselves to listen to Obama and give him a chance to earn your support. I don’t agree with Obama on every issue. It’s not required that you agree with a candidate on every issue. Separate the person from the political party and give each candidate a fair shot at your support.
