The beginning of the decline of McCain

One thing I always think of when I think of David Foster Wallace is his coverage of the flaming out of McCain’s campaign against Bush in the 2000 primaries. You can hear a segment on the South Carolina primaries here, and read more here. I remember listening to that “This…

Infantilizing John McCain

Jonah Goldberg had an a-ha! moment yesterday, which, as most of Jonah’s a-ha! moments go, involved taking something that someone else thought of and putting it on the National Review’s website. In this case, he figures out that John McCain doesn’t use e-mail because he was POWatized way back when.…

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…

Video break: the BarackRolling of John McCain

OMG. The tears were streaming down my face. That green and blue screens of death behind McCain at the convention have provided video editing wizards with choice material to work with.…

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,…

The McCains’ Turn To Bore Me

He might be in jail, but tonight’s really Abramoff’s night

John McCain is going to dodder on stage and give a repeat of Sarah Palin’s speech from last night (Summary: Kids, get off my lawn! My lawn called….America.), and so it will be easy to miss the real news about he who knows how to keep it real, Republican-style. Jack…

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…

McCain Is McCain Is McCain

The major theme I got last night from watching the GOP convention is that John McCain has fought a lot with Republicans during his career, and should therefore be elected President. The other major theme I got was that Barack Obama has fought a lot with Republicans during his career,…

Other than the crab-bear fights

It’s a little early for a callback, but damn: Carney and Scherer noted to McCain that the Iraqi government is calling for a deadline for U.S. troops to withdraw from Iraq even though McCain’s previously stated definition of “victory” – “a peaceful, stable, prosperous democratic state” – has not been…
