As fun as it is to pore over what URLs mean as it regards Obama’s veep pick, this massively in-depth analysis misses one thing – a new veep site will go up at Obama’s current page. The Obama[Veep]08.com URL will just forward to the Obama homepage. There’s not even necessarily a need, other than wanting the branding upfront, to have the URL tomorrow. It can easily be bought from any number of domain squatters, bastard fuckers that they are, and forwarded over the weekend just in time to launch the new website at the convention (say, Wednesday night after the VP choice speaks).
I will leave you with this, from that post’s comments:
I think Sebelius is a horrible choice. Frankly, this notion that “any woman will do” is the most ignorant, sexist and patronizing crap I’ve heard in a while. Kathleen Sebelius, while qualified, is not nearly as experienced or qualified as Hillary Clinton. To pick a woman who is clearly not as qualified as Hillary, nor as large an asset to the ticket as Hillary is political suicide for Obama.
Why do PUMAs hate women?
OH, WAIT UPDATE: It’s definitely Biden.
MAKE A GODDAMN CHOICE WHO YOU’RE GUESSING IT IS: It’s also definitely Kaine.
After many years and many server changes and finally landing here at Raw Story, which has taken very good care of us, it's time to say goodbye to Pandagon. I've been blogging under this banner for ten years, after Jesse Taylor asked me to join. He, in turn, had been running this joint since he was in college. A lot has changed since then. I became a journalist, moved from Austin to New York and learned to play Dungeons & Dragons. Jesse became a lawyer and, just this past weekend, a married man.
Carly Fiorina defends her lie with a whole bunch of lies
I do like it when Republican candidates sport a resume full of corporate executive work, because it really shows the public how many fools and idiots coast into that position not on merit but on their bullshitting abilities. Donald Trump, Herman Cain, and now we have Carly Fiorina, who just can't understand why her perceived underlings (voters, journalists) won't scurry away, pretending to accept her bullshit like former employees of hers had to do, lest they lost their jobs.
And so it goes that Fiorina, who could make this entire Planned Parenthood controversy go away by saying something like, "I may have misremembered the video, but I still think abortion is wrong," instead is doubling and tripling down. And every time she does, she lies more and more. She was on Meet the Press and, so enamored of the idea that she is perfect and could never do anything wrong, just went to town with the defensive posturing.
Marco Rubio has an astoundingly low opinion of women’s intelligence
At RH Reality Check, I covered this story that I wish was getting more press, about how Marco Rubio goes back and forth between suggesting that women who get abortions are greedy monsters who get pregnant for cash:
I just think you’ve created an industry now … a situation where very much, you’ve created an incentive for people not just to look forward to having more abortions, but being able to sell that fetal tissue for purposes—these centers—for purposes of making a profit off it, as you’ve seen in some of these Planned Parenthood affiliates.
