Obamosis

It’s been tickling at the edge of my mind – why are the McCain folks so focused on Bill Ayers? Besides the fact that the central allegation of Obama somehow secretly supporting Vietnam-era terrorism he couldn’t have understood at the time is patently ridiculous, it’s largely a case of guilt…

Ten things Amanda can do without

I promised Samhita I’d pick up this meme and run with it, hoping others would pick it up. Leave yours in comments, on your own blog, whatever. Ten things Amanda can do without 10) The pit in my stomach every time I consider that John McCain may still pull it…

Happy Muslim Day, Islams!

John McCain decided to join his Muslim brothers and sistes in celebrating the end of Ramadan. Unfortunately, he decided to celebrate the end of Ramadan 2005 (that year’s theme: Under The Sea) by ripping off George W. Bush’s short statement from that year. After the break, the messages – the…

‘Impotent’ Bush’s feeble speech on the economic meltdown and bailout

Dear Leader, who looked like he wishes January 20, 2009 was here and he could be helicoptered to safety out of DC, stepped before the podium from the Diplomatic Reception Room of the White House and spoke for a mere four minutes about the devastation going on in the markets…

John McCain: Broder’s Petraeus

If there’s one thing I expect my DC poltiical pundits to be intimately familiar with, it’s bullshit expressions of masculinity. So when David Broder declares John McCain an alpha male for not looking at Barack Obama during the debate. It was a small thing, but I counted six times that…

He Is The Future

Our man Blackazoid may understand the very ebon river of reality, the bass and the treble of creation, but John McCain controls time itself. Keep in mind that the campaign he suspended made plans to run an ad that he wasn’t supposed to be running claiming he won a debate…

A Thought

If John McCain had just said he was canceling events to go to D.C. for the bailout bill, it one, wouldn’t look any different than his still-ongoing (but really suspended!) campaign does now and two, wouldn’t have subjected him to days of ridicule. But what do I know? The last…

Missed It By That Much

So, it looks like the original plan was for John McCain to go to Washington, huddle with Republican leadership, figure out how to brand Democrats as obstructionists and then hold several highly-covered but ultimately pointless meetings about “ideas” he had for the bill long enough to disrupt the entire flow…
