NYT: ‘For South, a Waning Hold on National Politics’

There’s an interesting piece in the NYT by Adam Nossiter that makes some apt observations about what the results of the election mean for Republicans and the South. By voting so emphatically for Senator John McCain over Mr. Obama – supporting him in some areas in even greater numbers than…

Early Voting Is An Objective Good

The National Review opines today that early voting is bad for democracy, for two key reasons. The first is that early voting deprives us of potential last-minute information that could sway our votes. This would be a better point coming from an organ that wasn’t a diehard partisan magazine which…

Election day open thread

For those of you who are voting today, share your experience. (I voted last Friday, and shot video at the polls). * How were the lines? * What’s the weather like? It is rainy here, so I’m concerned turnout will be lower, though 66% of NC citizens have early voted.…

What the fringe clown car believes about Obama

Actually it’s a clown bus, not a clown car. The remaining staunch support of John McCain lies in the Base — the hard case bible beaters, the Freeper set, the low, low, low info voter, and those simply scared of change. Jonathan Stein over at Mother Jones attended a stop…

McCain’s Most Successful Campaign

John McCain isn’t really closing in this race. Over the past three weeks, Obama’s lead has oscillated wildly (massively!) between between 5.5 and 8 points. His current average RCP lead is 6.2%, which is right in the middle of that range and about as high as he ever was at…

The ultimate humiliation for McCain: Faux News labels him (D)

My, how the mighty have fallen. Over at the fabulous Jed Report, he screen captured a Fox News chyron: You might recall the last time the network made this “mistake,” it was when they labeled GOPerv Mark Foley “(D)”. I guess this is Fox’s way of tossing McCain under the…

Daddy D sucks up to Palin in radio interview

Right Wing Watch‘s Kyle Mantyla put himself through the torture of listening to Daddy D slobber all over Sarah Palin so you don’t have to. She not only reiterated that she and John McCain are staunch womb control advocates, she in turn slobbered over the fossilized professional “protector of the…

McCain Seeking Way To Win Without Winning

McCain is giving up on Colorado, and is instead focusing on Pennsylvania. Barack Obama is up an average of 11 in Pennsylvania. This means one of two things: either John McCain plans to go full-out Reverend Wright for the next two weeks (in which case it’ll actually be for about…

Stupidity Will Suffice

I don’t think John McCain is running the sleaziest campaign in recent memory. I think he’s just running one of the most prominently stupid. Today, Rick Davis, McCain’s campaign manager, is publicly reconsidering using the Wright issue. This is after publicly ruminating over using it before, then graduallly and publicly…

Grow My Pie!

McCain is on TV proposing some sort of national pie-growing contest or something. Anyway, he’s railing to his audience of people whose taxes he wants to cut that Obama is a bad socialist liberal because he wants to cut their taxes. The trick, you see, is to say that Obama…
