Time For a New Definition

Maverick – mav·er·ick /ˈmævərɪk, ˈmævrɪk/ Pronunciation – [mav-er-ik, mav-rik] noun – A person who lurches from idea to idea with no rational or logical explanation or progression in order to appear to be challenging the status quo. Thanks to John McCain for this new definition. I’m just sayin’…

He Comes To Save the Daaaaaay!!!

Hilzoy over at Obsidian Wings blog sums up McCain’s blatant and cynical politicization of the financial crisis perfectly: David Kurtz notes that McCain had spoken to the House Republicans before they staged their revolt, and that a number of them reported that he seemed sympathetic to their ideas. McCain’s campaign, however, issued a statement saying that he “did not attack […]

“Suspending My Campaign” My Ass

John McCain said this week he was suspending his campaign to help solve the nation’s financial crisis. Like hell he did: In Ohio, Brenda Lewis of the Greene County Victory Office seemed surprised there was any doubt that the office would be open. “Suspension of the campaign?” she asked out loud, before saying that her colleagues would be phone banking, […]

Oh, This is Rich

From Politico’s fine reporting: President Bush’s lame duck status, and his heavy hand in dealing with lawmakers in his own party for the last seven-plus years, is also coming back to haunt the White House, as House Republicans grumble that Bush is “trying to tear up the Constitution” by committing the federal government to such a massive intervention in the […]

AIG CEO Already Cashing In

I’d feel a WHOLE lot more comfortable with the government bailouts if fat cats like the CEO at AIG weren’t selling their shares a few days after the bailout to the tune of $1 BILLION. Seriously, this kind of thing couldn’t have been prohibited as part of the buyout deal? What the hell? Nicked from AMERICAblog. I’m just sayin’…

This is So Embarassing

This is So Embarassing

Wanna know what I think is one of the worst aspects of John McCain’s grandstanding and policizing of attempts to resolve our national financial “hiccup”? The fact that the rest of the world is watching our politicians act like complete douchebags in an effort to win an election. The Republicans should be ashamed of how they are behaving. And the […]

Who Knew?

Wow. This is a total news flash. Turns out, according to Sarah Palin, that in order to have tax reductions, you need to reduce taxes. From her interview with Katy Couric: So health care reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions. There you have it. I’m just sayin’…

A Whole Lotta Words

And absolutely no meaning or substance whatsoever. No wonder they’re trying to cancel the debates, eh? Watch CBS Videos Online(Sorry ’bout the commericial.) Absolutely pathetic that she is McCain’s choice. Pathetic and so not “Country First” as to be completely laughable. He ought to be ashamed. Like one of Andrew Sullivan’s readers said: The Couric interview reminded me of an […]

Rick Davis: Big Fat Liar

Despite the McPalin campaign’s contention otherwise, Rick Davis still is quite involved with the company he started that received at least $15,000 a month until last month from Freddie Mac for doing nothing (yet). Lindsay Beyerstein at The Campaign Silo over at Firedog Lake unearthed proof. < whispers >Someone needs to tell the McPalin campaign about the internets. < /whispers […]

Oo, oo, that smell…

I knew that the McCain campaign was getting desperate but, holy shit, I had no idea he’d go this far off the deep end. There’s no question that he had a bad day last week with the whole “fundamentals are strong/the financial world is ending” flip-flop. And the whole “no fucking way we’re bailing out AIG/we totally need to bail […]
