Fox gets jiggy with Colin Powell

It doesn’t stop, huh? As Jesus’ General says, “The Confederacy lives on at Fox News.” Here’s a screen cap of its web site: And in similar news as Jesse mentioned, unregistered-to-vote Joe the Plumber compared Barack Obama to…Sammy Davis, Jr (no lie, it’s about 3:00 into this CBS interview w/Katie…

Joe The Plumber

Is an idiot. To clarify: Joe uncritically accepts everything McCain tells him, but finds Barack Obama shifty and dancing and just generally Sammy Davis Jr.-like, because black people dance or somesuch thing. It’s like watching a pundit from six months ago tell you about Barack Obama’s challenges with the electorate.…

That debate wasn’t about Joe the Plumber

(BTW, Joe the Plumber isn’t registered to vote.) Despite being mentioned 27 times during Wednesday’s debate, Joe The Plumber Wurzelbacher wasn’t the big news of the head-to-head between Barack Obama and John McCain. IMHO, it was the final, no-mistakes-about-it repudiation of the presidency of George W. Bush by the man…

And Boom Goes The McCainimite

Sacramento County Republicans call for torturing Barack Obama. Some random people at an anti-McCain rally wore mean t-shirts. According to Marty Peretz, these two things are probably roughly equivalent. There is a reason that people think that McCain supporters are getting crazy as all hell. It is because they are,…

Mike Signorile listens to the The Hate Out There

Holy smoke, the downward spiral of anti-Obama sentiment fomented by McCain/Palin is spilling out into one-on-one harassment. Mike Signorile has had callers dial in to share hair-raising stories about being lashed out at by members of the “McCain mob.” The short video clip here depicts one of several eerily similar…

Christopher Buckley loses National Review column after Obama endorsement

The son of National Review founder William F. Buckley, Christopher, endorsed Barack Obama in a blog at the Daily Beast, not the NR, but the bible of conservative scribes has yanked his NR column. (WaPo): Christopher Buckley knew he was venturing into treacherous territory when he endorsed Barack Obama: “It’s…

McCain’s Final Three Weeks

The mores of honor demand that John McCain slur Barack Obama to his face: Speaking on St. Louis radio, the candidate says Obama’s recent comments have “probably ensured” the former Weather Underground leader will come up in Wednesday’s debate. “I was astonished to hear him say that he was surprised…

Wingnut meme of the day: Bill Ayers, homosexualist

This is so predictable it's like an episode of Three's Company (what?! Jack Tripper isn't gay?) — Bill Ayers Endorsed Radical Pro-Homosexual Education Book. Bill Ayers gave a thumbs up to a tome called "Queering Elementary Education: Advancing the Dialogue about Sexualities and Schooling" by William J. Letts IV and…

Ain’t No Valley Low Enough

Okay, there’s low. Like, say, Death Valley is pretty low. Then there’s lower – the Marianas Trench, let’s say. And then there’s this, which to sum it up in as non-sketchy a way as possible, is conservative bloggers gleefully spreading the rumor that Barack Obama was molested by one of…

McCain’s boast about upcoming debate w/Obama: he will ‘whip his you know what’

Ah, the class of John McCain. Will Gramps chase Barack Obama off of his lawn as well? The mixed messages coming out of this failing campaign are maddening. After doing some debate prep and satellite interviews at his campaign headquarters for most of the afternoon, McCain headed downstairs to his…
