I think this is idiotic father should have his sanity called into question.  This is right up there with tattooing a profanity on this young girl’s forehead.  This act as a “sign of support for the McCain campaign” is beyond moronic.

I just hope that as the girl grows up and realized how awkward the name is, that she is allowed to rip off his eyebrows with Duct Tape on her birthday.



The Schlep is Working

It looks like the Sarah Silverman inspired Obama ad is working as intended. Even if you don’t like her humor, the concept is a  good one.  It encourages a dialog between families, who may have generational differences in opinions.

In a brilliant move, the Obama campaign has purchased advertising space in online games.   I remembered seeing this talked about regarding such advertisers as Dominos and Pepsi, but this is a truly bold move by a very progressive political team.

So how far can this influence go?  A Pew study highlighted that 97% of kids 12 to 17 play video games.  They aren’t just solo gamers but play socially.  So the presence may not just be for vanity as the kids may strike up a conversation with each other about politics, or heaven forbid, their parents.  Even if this was an XBox Live only feature, there are well over 6,000,000 members across the world.

I just want to see Obama roll a Pally in Warcraft and run around spamming:

Wow, it’s amazing what Fox News has to talk about when their Republican spoon-fed media insiders are just sobbing uncontrollably or screaming like the Angry German CS kid.

It’s funny to think about this as an analogy.  The public should only see the edited version of a candidate.  We shouldn’t be able to see them without the veil of the spin doctors.

So “who is the real Sarah Palin?”  (Pores not included.)

Part 2

This is why the rest of the world snickers at us.

Even more, caution the language might be offensive to some.



McCain and Palin sit down with Sean Hannity

Now I could really go off on Sean Hannity and his inability to even remotely pretend that he was a real journalist, but I think this extremely pathetic attempt at an interview speaks volumes for FoxNews and demographic McCain/Palin want to reach.

My first reaction was at amazing revalation, that many of us suspected, in which John McCain admits in so many words that he and Sarah Palin aren’t very good at communicating.  When asked if they critique each other, he says no.  His strategy is “two words–have fun.”  To that I say, I hope they are having their fun now, because while they polish their one liners and time those winks for more effective wpm (winks per minute) the American people are cringing in fear for their futures.  Strapped citizens are trying to kill themselves because they aren’t finding an answer from their representatives, and McCain/Palin just want to have fun.

The next point was even more amazing to me.  John McCain brings up a point that many special needs children, many of who are autistic, come to the debates and speeches.  McCain wants to give Sarah Palin the task of “finding the cause and cure” for autism, to which he states she is “uniquely qualified.”  Excuse me!?! How is Sarah Palin qualified to find the cure for autism?  Is her expertise in neurological science now?  I thought it was energy?  I guess if you think you can tackle all the worlds problems at once, why can’t your VP with a journalism degree be one of the experts in finding a cure for autism?  There has been much research to suggest a connection between stem cell mutation and autism, so since Sarah Palin objects to stem cell research, does that mean we are back to looking for a cure that she approves of?

Next point energy.  To explain their past differences, Palin states that we need an “all of the above” solution to our energy future.  The funny thing is that Palin and the GOP have often resisted the need for alternative fuels.  What I love is how they can easily cherry pick international examples for societies that have made great strives in energy efficiency.  But didn’t their answer still seem rather vague and more about “drilling” for buzz words and not providing a strategy.

Ugh.  Moose hunting is fun.

Part 2, nothing new here.  McCain continues making the same slips on Obama and foreign policy.  Remember Kosovo?  McCain criticized the air raids ordered by the Bush regime for bombing from high altitudes and hitting non-combat targets.  Palin then adds that Obama has a “gross misunderstanding” of Afghanistan.  I have the feeling Palin still doesn’t know they aren’t our neighbors.  McCain then twists his no vote against funding to be against withdrawal and not against the troops, but that logic is flawed.  A vote against is a vote against.  I don’t want to talk about their broken record of economic policies and their critique of Obama.  Palin goes off on not understanding where Obama plans to get the money for his new spending plans.  I hate to tell them but you can find it on the “Internets.”  McCain then lies again about Obama’s record.

Part 3, almost Ayers.

Once again the lap dog asks the attack dog what more they need to know about the Ayers/Obama relationship.  The truth is that their relationship is no more influential than many of the more atrocious relationships of McCain and Palin.  If this is about judgment and being candid, aren’t the GOP guilty of their own sins?

Palin needed to look McCain in the eye, but since he hasn’t been in Alaska in years, how did she do that in accepting his choice for VP?  More stories from the north.  I wonder what letters she saw in his eyes?  FTL?

Hannity spews some poll numbers that are horribly underrepresented.  By Hannity’s count they are only down by 2 or 3 points.  The fact is that they were down by nearly double digits in most of the polls.  I guess math isn’t their strong suit either. Of course Hannity has an honorary degree given to him by Jerry Fallwell, seeing as how Hannity has always been described as an “indifferent student.”  Learning makes my brain parts hurt!

All I can say that for Hannity to stage this “infomercial” for the McCain campaign is a show of a lack of professionalism and just how inauthentic Hannity truly is.  There were no real questions asked.  Hannity set the questions up on a silver platter for McCain/Palin to hit out of the park like a coach prepping the Tee-ball team.  Granted most of the people who watch this “show” are already sold on the GOP and will buy any line that comes out of the conservative right’s mouth.  If you haven’t seen Hannity get his lies thrown back at him, You Tube it.  How many days left until Nov. 4?



Cindy McCain missed something

CNN reported that Cindy McCain went on the offensive calling Obama’s support for the troops into question.  Cindy cites Obama’s 2007 vote against a bill for support for the troops in Iraq.  It is true that Obama didn’t support that particular bill but John McCain wasn’t even present for that vote.  Obama and many others wanted a timetable for an exit plan.

When another bill came forth with a timetable and similar funding, McCain voted against it.

So let’s see if the argument holds any water from Cindy.

Obama/Biden don’t think or care about the troops.  Well Biden’s son is there and Obama has been trying to find a solution for better funding and a realistic strategy for withdrawal from the start of this illegal war.

Obama/Biden are running the “dirtiest” campaign in American history.  Well some would say that honor should be given to the 2000 Bush campaign, who skewered John McCain with lies and smear tactics.  But this more recent “soft” attack on Obama’s patriotism and race-baiting is perhaps a bit dirtier.  When someone comes right out and throws mud in your face, you can wipe it off and fight back.  When a campaign twists facts and incites an angry public into near violence, by writing “hate me” on the backs of the Obama campaign; something is afoul.  Where did McCain’s honor go?  The same place that his hopes to pull this one out went.
