Palin’s Hacker Indicted

The scumbag that hacked Governor Palin’s personal email account turned himself in yesterday. I hope he gets the book thrown at him. His little stunt does nothing to further the cause of Democrats. Sure, she shouldn’t have been using a private account to avoid records-retention rules. Fine. I agree. Throw the book at her on that. But illegally hacking into […]

McCain’s Rage

This is a great piece, filled with Republicans talking about McCain’s temperament. This guy in charge? Not if I can help it. Thanks to my friend, Jana, for this. I’m just sayin’…

Rant-O-Copia

A bunch of stuff on my list this this morning. 1. Negative Campaigning: Obama vs. McCainI’ve said recently to my conservative friend, Aielman, that comparing Obama’s lies and McCain’s lies on the campaign trail is like comparing a guy with a blister on his finger to a guy with a broken arm because they’re both “injured”. It’s a matter of […]

Bruce Springsteen in Ypsilanti, Michigan

Bruce Springsteen in Ypsilanti, Michigan

Ypsilanti? Yes, Ypsilanti. Bruce Springsteen in Ypsilanti, Michigan. It’s possible that only Barack Obama could make that possible. “Hello, Ypsilanti!” Springsteen shouted to the audience of around 11,000. “Glad to be here! I don’t know how to spell it, though.” Even so, the rock legend seemed very comfortable in this odd-named town that’s an eclectic blend of college students from […]

Solving the Federal Deficit

Solving the Federal Deficit

Here’s how John McCain is going to close the budget gap that’s creating the gigantic federal deficit. He’s going to eliminate earmarks. Earmarks, as part of our overall budget, are that little sliver of red in the pie chart below: Via ForeignPolicy.com. Oh, yeah, he’s also going to cut taxes for the uber-wealthy. Good luck with all of that. Straight […]

Desperation’s Crocodile

Desperation’s Crocodile

As Sarah Palin scans her morning coffee cup for words of inspiration and wisdom, one wonders if, in light of their campaign’s recent turn toward the Dark Side, this quote appeared to her: “In life you need either inspiration or desperation.”– Anthony Robbins And THIS is enough to make anyone desperate: Pollster data from 10/6/2008 This is Desperation’s Crocodile. At […]

Spinning Obama’s Victory Already?

Rich Lowry at the National Review is already spinning Obama’s victory over McCain. While I agree that the economic crisis has impacted McCain’s campaign harder, there’s a good reason for that: his party’s approach for the past eight years (and his actions in Congress) have done NOTHING to mitigate the financial meltdown we’re seeing. The fact that Obama has been […]

Well, Day-um

Joe Klein at Time’s Swampland blog bars no holds: Referring to the McPalin attempts to cast aspersions on Barack Obama’s character As I said, I’m of two minds about this. I don’t want to give currency to this sewage, so it will remain below the fold. And I’ll try to devote the lion’s share of my time to the issues–the […]

McCain: Republican “Placeholder”

McCain: Republican “Placeholder”

Perhaps the biggest problem for John McCain, self-proclaimed “maverick” (retch), is that he has bucked his own party for so long that he has incurred the enmity of many in his party. However, in an election year where “change” is so essential, something (perhaps the only thing) that Democrats and Republicans agree on, putting McCain at the top of the […]

Freedom-Hating Pakistanis

Freedom-Hating Pakistanis

As I understand it, according to our Dear Leader and his minions, it’s our freedoms they hate… I tend to agree more with Bill Maher, actually: “They don’t hate us for our freedom,” said Maher with a laugh. “They hate us for our airstrikes. In Afghanistan, that seems to be the problem. It’s that, we keep killing people with our […]
