John McCain Is Calling Barack Obama A Terrorist

McCain’s new ad accuses Barack Obama of sending his wolves to Alaska to savage Sarah Palin: Now, I’m very much on the “associated uses of words and images” tip at this point, and the use of that imagery reminds me of nothing so much as George W. Bush’s famously effective…

Totally Sexist

I can’t believe Barack Obama said something this awful and sexist: How dare he call John McCain a pig! Oh, that wasn’t what you meant? It was aimed at Sarah Palin? After a list of criticisms that Obama’s been making against McCain since Palin was just a twinkle in the…

Barack Obama’s Penis Legislates It All

The new McCain ad: Apparently, John McCain is now going after the sexual predator vote, which, hey, Mark Foley joke! But no, really, to have to admire the chutzpah which lets you think it’s a good idea to attack someone who wants to prevent sexual abuse? That’s what a maverick…

Obama Should Flip His Shit

Barack Obama is cooler than the other side of the pillow…and this is a bad thing. Yglesias talks about how narratives are formed, but the problem is that the core narrative of presidential politics is still focused on two simple ideas: 1.) Republicans are successfully communicating with the American people.…

Why is this guy obsessed with sodomy?

That’s the question The Young Turks asked at the GOP convention, after awaiting for a batsh*t fundie to show up, and their wish was granted — when apparent Hartline-wannabe Ryan Sorba showed up. His lot in life is to “expose the dark secrets of the homosexual political community.” (Read past…

Mixed Metaphors Make The Head Hurt

You’ve got your New England snob, your West Coast hippie, your inner-city minority, your college kid, your college professor, your demented atheist, your welfare recipient –…

All Conservatives Are Racist Pedophiles

Look, no, there’s no possible way to interpret the title of this post as saying that each and every conservative is a bigoted child-lover. There’s just not. The standard for Republicans opening their mouths has generally been that they don’t mean the words that come out, but in fact some…

Day 5 Of The Republican Convention

After a convention wholeheartedly dedicated (by which I mean they gave out signs which none of the dozens in attendance read) to the idea of service to something greater than one’s self, the end result is a clear message to America’s struggling communities: organizing to improve your lot in life…

Paaaaaailin Away

Her backdrop is the endless void of the soul. This is a good start. Why do they keep using McCain’s middle initial? Did you know that McCain was in the military and supported the war in Iraq? Because I was confused. I thought he was a community organizer. Unlike Barack…

Chocolate Starfish And The Giuliani Water

Why did NOBODY on the fucking design crew not think that the lowest tenth of a moving image would be a bad background for TV? Giuliani looks like he’s giving a speech from a sewer. Guess what? John McCain is a hero. And his biography is compelling. And entirely unknown.…
