McCain must have money on Obama

That’s the only thing that makes sense. The hare-brained scheme to duck the debates by pretending to be above it all isn’t fooling anyone—even the grumpy trolls defending it on the blogs see it as a political ploy, but just applaud McCain for appealing to their anti-social, “fuck the voters”…

Place your bets

On how long it is before the McCain campaign starts claiming it’s sexist to make Sarah Palin answer her own questions during the debate with Biden, and insists that McCain be on hand to talk for her? Or perhaps that the answers be given in charades?…

More rapist-coddling from McCain/Palin

Melissa has a fascinating look into the aspects of Palin’s Troopergate problem pertaining to the fight against sexual assault. By now, I’m sure you’re all aware of the story of how Palin fired Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan because he refused to dog Palin’s sister’s ex-husband with legal troubles. But…

Liars

Earlier, I denounced the mainstream media for complicity in McCain’s blatant lying during this campaign. My terror might have been premature—David Brooks and Richard Cohen, perhaps shamed by being bested by the ladies of “The View” in the journalism department, have denounced the McCain campaign for their unprecedented rip-roaring commitment…

Quis custodiet ipsos custodes*

Apologies for the sexism of the term “cunts”. Really, the British need to hop to using a more gender-neutral word for the concept. Americans have a leg up in this department with the word “assholes”, which doesn’t, unfortunately, fit in the meter of this song. The fact that the McCain…

I bet Rollins would put politics aside in this one case

Given all the trouble the McCain campaign is having finding a theme song the author doesn’t object to, and some of the other…ahem…challenges the campaign is facing, Dreggas in John Cole’s comments makes a suggestion: Dreggas thinks that Rollins might object, but as the post title says, I have the…

From GOPs To Gents

Long story short, it looks like McCain and Palin are going to be using stolen American flags at their Colorado Springs rally. Fox News reported that “a vendor” found bags and bags of discarded American flags near trash cans, took them, and handed them over to the McCain campaign. Which,…

Bludgeoning The Refs To Within An Inch Of Their Lives

What happens when whining like a baby doesn’t work? You whine even more, motherfucker. I can’t particularly blame the media here, the simple pack animals that they tend to act as. What McCain did was issue a challenge – he threw out someone virtually untouched by any investigative reporting whatsoever…

Wingnuts will fall in line behind Lieberman

I’m in full agreement with Ezra—McCain is going to go with Lieberman as the VP pick. I largely agree with his reasoning—McCain’s only chance at winning is distinguishing himself from the crazy wingnuts (of which he’s a member of good standing) that have dominated the Bush administration, and for the…

Roll Up A New Character

John McCain’s campaign blogger issues an apology to Dungeons & Dragons players. Now for the McCain campaign to issue free black t-shirts adorned with airbrushed fantasy art to the next 1,000 donors. ROLLED A DOUBLE 20: The above is an apology for the original D&D reference by McCain’s blogger, what…
