PUMAs, swiftboated and not

So, that PUMA thing blew up. Naturally, people are casting around looking for any reason to suggest that the stereotype—hysterical women too dumb to know what’s good for them voting for McCain out of spite because Clinton lost, thereby inadvertently proving that women are probably too stupid to vote, much…

You Take The Good, You Take The Bad

David Brooks is full of revelation today: As in other recent campaigns, lawyers account for the biggest chunk of Democratic donations. They have donated about $18 million to Obama, compared with about $5 million to John McCain, according to data released on June 2 and available at OpenSecrets.org. People who…

Manhug McMaverick Rides Again

Not one, but two articles in which Obama is targeted, and McCain is given a pass despite his gross inconsistency on the exact matter at hand. First, Obama…

Do You Believe In Magic?

Lieberman as McCain’s Veep? You don’t say! The problem with McCain’s veep search is the same problem the GOP had in the primary – choosing from among a group of clowns will ultimately net you the least clownish clown. I think that there’s a 50/50 chance that Lieberman is the…

I Got Tubes!

Internet campaigning has a ton of misconceptions behind it, especially as we enter into the third major cycle (2004 and 2006 being the first two) of it. Ben Adler in the Politico (complete with really stupid composite image of McCain and Obama) writes about whether or not McCain’s online operation…

Just why would we get the idea that he’s McSame?

This is brilliant. The Jed Report has a mashup of the obliteration of John McCain…by John McCain on whether he’s hand-in-glove with Dear Leader. And here is today’s WTF moment by McCain, via The Carpetbagger Report: “I will look you in the eye and promise you that I will get…

Straight talk – McCain this and that

Let’s start off with comedy… Gingrich compares McCain to Abe Lincoln. Now that’s balls. Five dollar bills around the country are igniting as we speak. In an interview with GQ magazine yesterday, former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich compared Sen. John McCain’s (R-AZ) effort to rally support around his…

This Is So Us

Jonathan Martin, showing why the biggest thing McCain has to fear from the press is paper cuts from all the mash notes he’s going to get. I’ve written about this before and I think it gets to what makes McCain so appealing — he’s really not a typical, wind-up politician.…

The Internet Has Been Won

The McCain campaign sends out “The McCain Update” every Friday night, a source of bemusement to me for no other reason than that in politics, Friday nights are when you do things you don’t want anybody to see. This week’s update is headed by a “strategy briefing” from their campaign…

What To Look Forward To

McCain is using Obama’s website. McCain is looking to put Fauxbama on his ticket. Word’s coming down that he’s trying to pay off his minister to put up a YouTube video of him saying “Fuck Jesus” to the beat of the Notorioius B.I.G.’s “Get Money”. We’ll let you know how…
