Just. Doesn’t. Get. It.

Seriously, this guy is running on his NEW! and IMPROVED! banner of CHANGE!??? This old man is so out of touch and entrenched in Warshington politics that I wouldn’t trust him to have anything at all to do with “fixing” our economy. The Dems nail it in their new ad I’m just sayin’…

McCain Sexism

I was raised by a single mother and an ardent feminist. She dragged my brother and I to Equal Rights Amendment rallies and to hear prominent feminist women speak. Our house was papered with posters which said things like “Women are Not Chicks” and “Men of Quality are Not Threatened by Women for Equality”. I even sported a button that […]

Lies and Damn Lies, XI

Jesus, these people will lie about anything, won’t they? Senator John McCain has drawn some of the biggest crowds of his presidential campaign since adding Alaska Governor Sarah Palin to his ticket on Aug. 29. Now officials say they can’t substantiate the figures McCain’s aides are claiming. McCain aide Kimmie Lipscomb told reporters on Sept. 10 that an outdoor rally […]

Lies and Damn Lies, Part X

Whoa. Somebody borrowed “a pair” from Hillary. Crazy part is, she’s from Fox News! Of course, Tucker Bounds is a total douchebag. But the fact that he’s been reduced to admitting that they are telling lies about Obama raising everyone’s taxes is because they don’t believe him. Get that? They say he’s going to raise the estate tax, the payroll […]

Lies and Damn Lies, Part IX

Governor Palin today spelled out what her role will be in the White House, should they get elected. Here it is: Vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin said Monday she would concentrate on energy, government reform and helping families with special needs children if Republicans win the White House… I’m guessin’ that “special needs” families all over Alaska aren’t too thrilled […]

Theenks, But New Theenks

Governor Palin took a break from using her “Theenks, But New Theenks” line in her stump speeches last week. You know, when she was actually in Alaska. Where they know more than they probably care to about bridges to nowhere and stuff. This week she’s back in the lower 48 and guess what? Yup. She’s back to theenking but new […]

I Know You Are But What Am I???

Senator McCain finally admitted today that Senator Obama did not call Sarah Palin a pig. Then when he was asked about his LIE that Governor Palin had never asked for any earmarks as governor (she asked for $200 million worth, actually), his response? That Senator Obama had asked for more. Notice that diversion? Doesn’t address the fact that he lied. […]

Lies Exposed

Now we’re talkin’. More like this please. The McCain campaign’s response? We’re running a campaign to win. And we’re not too concerned about what the media filter tries to say about it. In other words, they’ll just keep lying ’cause that’s how they think they’re going to win. And fuck you and the media if you don’t like it. That’s […]

David Foster Wallace (R.I.P.) on McCain

We lost one of the good ones this past Friday when David Foster Wallace, author of the legendary Infinite Jest, was found dead from suicide. DFW’s insight into society and American life, in particular, made him a standout in the literary world. His death is a tragic loss. In 2000, DFW spent two weeks on the campaign trail with John […]
