Oh. My. God.

Okay then. I guess McCain’s whole “it was Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae greedy fucks and Barack Obama that caused the current economic meltdown” meme just bit the big one. Read it and weep, Mr. Senator McCain, sir (showing deference): To The Editor: Yesterday, Senator John McCain released a television commercial attacking Barack Obama for allegedly receiving advice on the […]

The Pathetic John McCain

Seems like Barack Obama has started to find the whole McPalin campaign a little pathetic. I love this passive-aggressive slam: This morning Senator McCain gave a speech in which his big solution to this worldwide economic crisis was to blame me for it. This is a guy who’s spent nearly three decades in Washington, and after spending the entire campaign […]

Washington Post: Not All Lies are Created Equal

Ask Republican John McCain about the nastiness of his campaign of late and the lies that he and his running mate continue to tell and his response involves some mixture of “Obama’s doing it, too”, “Obama will raise your taxes” and “This wouldn’t be happening if Obama would just do town hall meetings with me.” None of these, of course, […]

The Palin-McCain Administration? Ulp.

That’s right, lady, keep it up. The more people have a mental image of YOU as president, the better Obama’s chances get. Period. It’s that simple. President Palin? *shudder* I’m just sayin’…

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 […]

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 and Damn Lies, Part VI

This right here is how it is done: you call a fucking liar a fucking liar. To his face. On television. Make him defend his side’s fucking lies. Brilliant. I’m just sayin’…

Lies and Damn Lies, Part V

Whoa. Paul Krugman at the New York Times eviscerates the McPalin campaign for their LIES. Did you hear about how Barack Obama wants to have sex education in kindergarten, and called Sarah Palin a pig? Did you hear about how Ms. Palin told Congress, “Thanks, but no thanks” when it wanted to buy Alaska a Bridge to Nowhere? These stories […]

McPalin Pisses Off FactCheck.org

Oh, they shouldn’ta done THAT. A McCain-Palin ad has FactCheck.org calling Obama’s attacks on Palin “completely false” and “misleading.” That’s what we said, but it wasn’t about Obama. Our article criticized anonymous e-mail falsehoods and bogus claims about Palin posted around the Internet. We have no evidence that any of the claims we found to be false came from the […]
