Elitimamism

How bad is it that even John McCain doesn’t know how many homes he owns? If we look at charges of elitism over the past couple of elections, they all tend to come from the sorts of behavior that aren’t particularly novel or elitist except for the fact that they…

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…

Iraq: Brought To You By McCain

This is why I’m scared to death that no matter how bad a campaign John McCain runs, he’s got a chance to win because the media is giving him a huge handicap. Like Lindsay says, the angle on the story is that McCain is a “straight talker” and a war…

Did You Say Something Stupid?

Let’s just continue saying it! Could it be any more obvious that McCain would have leapt on any conflict anywhere in the world to play make-believe George W. Bush circa September 2001? Shadow ambassadors, asinine and utterly contradictory assertions – John McCain is so hungry to appear presidential that he’s…

DOOOOOOOOM

After a few days of McCain’s gamble on negative ads, Barack Obama has been creeping steadily upwards in polling. The real question is, if McCain’s ads aren’t working, why isn’t Obama farther ahead? Ergo, the ads must be working and Obama is doomed to uncomfortably lead the polls for the…

It’s The McCain Room Game!

Speaking of McCain’s homes (of which there seem to be at least double digits, one of McCain’s old houses is for sale. If 13 bedrooms and 15 bathrooms is spacious enough for you. Incidentally, there are more bedrooms and bathrooms in that house than I’ve had in every place I’ve…

My Singular Friend

Between shoving Bush into speaking on Labor Day, Cheney not showing up, indicted Senators not showing up, and several sitting Senators not showing up, who exactly is going to be at the Republican National Convention to nominate McCain? It does strike me as a particularly useful way to separate McCain…

Once again, blame the media

Reading articles like this (hat tip) before my coffee has fully started me on my day of sunny optimism leads me to wail and moan my neighbors who don’t take their citizenship duties seriously. Which is unfair of me, I suppose, since it’s far from guaranteed that everyone is going…

John McCain Wants His Wife To Win A Fake Orgasm Contest

Seriously. In introducing his wife, McCain noted the ongoing beauty pageant at the event and said that he had “encouraged Cindy to compete. I told her, with a little luck, she could be the only person ever to serve as first lady and Miss Buffalo Chip.” All I’m saying is…
