Temper, Temper, John-Boy

St. John was mighty testy when two Time reporters were invited to visit with him in the front of his Straight Talk Express plane recently. Geez, his post-menopausal crabby POW mood swings are so annoying. Joey and Ms. Lindsey say so all the time.

If McBush could answer a question without lying, his tongue would fall out!

Will you get an Obama Tax Cut?

Barack Obama promises to cut taxes for 95% of Americans, but 53% of Americans actually think Obama will raise their taxes. This site uses data from the non-partisan Tax Policy Center to determine whether or not you will receive an Obama Tax Cut.

Barack Obama is our nominee! In an obvious but nevertheless historic and tear-jerky moment, Hillary moved the convention to suspend the roll call and name Barack Obama the nominee of the Democratic Party!

Catharsis - New Parfum by Hillary

Breaking the cord with the Clintons - The Boston Globe

I SAW an ad that offered a "free Obama button," and I thought - now there's a slogan: "Free Obama." This week, what Barack Obama must be freed from are the Clintons.

This needs to be on a t-shirt

Joe Biden remarried, as a widower. John McCain remarried, as an adulterer.

McCan't is Still a Dick

Remember a couple of years ago when McOld challenged a group of union workers in DC to pick Yuma lettuce? Remember how he offered 'em $50/hr and then told them they couldn't do it? Wonder if his offer is still good....

Do you know how many homes you own?

Right the fuck on, DNC! Keep 'em coming.

Obama: Seven

Obama's newest ad is going viral.

Rachel Maddow's Show

Good news yesterday that MSNBC paid attention to its viewers and is giving Rachel her own show! Yessssssss!!! Too bad they didn't dump Gregory and put her in that timeslot, but the second best choice was in the Verdict timeslot and that's where she'll be in a couple of weeks. Tonight is the very last Verdict show and it's probably the best one I've ever seen.

When Did We Become A Nation of Idiots? or Who The Hell Are They Polling?

I don't get it. There's 2 guys running for president - one guy doesn't believe in women's rights, admits to not knowing much about economics, lies when asked how many houses he owns, and wants to reinstitute the draft in order to chase bin Laden to the gates of hell. Oh yeah, and his being a POW is both an excuse and the ultimate qualifier for being president.

He can't string two sentences together without cue cards or cheating and hearing the questions in advance, he says whatever he wants to whenever he wants to and waves it off as just that ole maverick thing. He calls his wife vile names and offers to put her up in a biker babe topless contest.

He doesn't even vote for the programs to support the veterans he loves to talk about! He didn't support Jim Webb's recent GI bill even though he lied and said he had supported it. For a list as long as my arm of veteran's programs that he voted against, see here.

Despite all this crap, week after week, the polls indicate this old fool is closing the gap between himself and the best goddam candidate we've had in most of our lifetimes. How do people NOT see that electing McCain is just extending the devastating Bush presidency? How can any woman vote for the man who won't hesitate to take away her reproductive rights as quickly as he can? How can anybody anywhere vote for the man who's willing to wage war after war after war and draft our children and grandchildren to fight even more wars?

Haven't the past 8 years been horrendous enough? Haven't your paychecks shrunk enough? Haven't we been lied to enough? It's time to vote for the candidate best qualified to lead this country out of the quagmire Bush led us into. It's time to vote for the candidate that won't send our children off to war in order to prove something to himself. The candidate that won't thumb his nose at the world. It's time to vote for the guy who's not wearing the VFW or the Navy baseball cap.

I don't get it. There's 2 sandwiches - one has been out in the sun and is spoiled and fetid the other has been in a cooler and is crisp and fresh. Which one will you choose . . .

McCain Can't Count That High!

McCain's Mansions

The REAL John McCain is a multi-millionaire who owns ten luxurious homes. The REAL John McCain backs President Bush's tax cuts for big corporations. The REAL John McCain empathizes only with the interests of our nation's wealthy minority, not its money-strapped majority. But far too many are buying into McCain's deceit because the corporate press won't present the whole picture, so we created this video to educate the public about the REAL McCain. ... read more digg story

Looks like that CITD story wasn't from Solzhenitsyn after all. Hmmm, didn't I write a couple of days ago that I thought it was even though I couldn't specifically remember reading it in the Gulag? At least I was being truthful. Apparently, Andrew Sullivan has the scoop on the origins of this story. It's a myth.

McSAME Voted For Earmark He Rails Against In Ad

John McCain cites three absurd-sounding examples of pork-barrel spending in a recent ad: a "bridge to nowhere," a study of the DNA of bears and a Woodstock museum. He went after the "bridge to nowhere," and he was absent for key votes on its funding. he never proposed cutting the bear study and voted for the final bill containing it.

McPOW is a Fucking Liar - Part 2

I just spotted this concise, lucid, cogent, in other words nothing McOld or his supporters understands, post by RealDCC over at

According to the transcript, Warren said: "Now, what I decided is to allow for proper comparison, I’m going to ask identical questions to each of these candidates. So you can compare apples to apples. Now, Senator Obama is going to go first. We flipped a coin, and we have safely placed Senator McCain in a cone of silence."

But that wasn't true: McCain wasn't in the building when they started.

A stunt like that by Obama would have the McCainiacs howling "cheater!".

Then, consider the education questions:

WARREN: OK. Let’s go to education. America right now ranks 19th in high school graduations. We’re first in incarcerations.

OBAMA: Not good.

WARREN: Not good. 80 percent of Americans recently polled said they
believe in merit pay. Now, for teachers, do you - I’m not asking do you think all teachers should get a raise. Do you think better teachers should be paid better? They should be paid more than poor teachers?

OBAMA: I think that we should - and I’ve said this publicly, that we
should set up a system of performance pay for teachers, negotiated with teachers, worked with the teachers to figure out the assessments, so that they feel like they’re being judged fairly, it’s not at the whim of the principal. That it’s not simply based on a single high stakes standardized test but the basic notion that teaching is a profession, that teachers are underpaid, so we need to pay them all more, but - and create a higher baseline, but then we should also reward excellence.

WARREN: Reward excellence.

OBAMA: I think that is a concept that all of us should embrace. [ applause ]

Now, supposedly, Warren was going to ask the same questions to both.

However, consider the exchange on education with McCain:

WARREN: Let’s talk about education. America ranks 19th in high school graduations, but we’re first in incarcerations. Everybody says they want more accountability in schools.

MCCAIN: Um-hum.

WARREN: About 80 percent of America says they support merit pay for the best teachers. Now, I don’t want to hear your stump speech on education.

MCCAIN: Yes, yes, and find bad teachers another line of

WARREN: You know, we’re going to end this, you’re answering so quickly. You want to play a game of poker?

Warren was surprised - had hadn't even asked the education questions and here McCain was answering them!

McCain clearly answered the two "expected" questions and then launched into his stump speech, something Warren asked Obama to avoid.

These are the facts, folks. McCain did well, and part of the reason he did was that he cheated.

What he said!

McPOW is a Fucking Liar!

And a confused old fool!

Anybody who watched 20 or so minutes of his sitdown with Rick Warren and who's got more than 2 brain cells to rub together knows that McOLD is a jumbled mess of incoherence.

He lied about being in a cone of silence. Link to the proof.

He plagiarized the hell outta the cross in the sand story. Out and out PLAGIARISM McCain Campaign! Lying wasn't bad enough for your candidate. I guess you guys figured since Solzhenitsyn is dead, nobody'd know if he lifted one little story right from him. The GOP is nothing but a gang of thieves, scared thieves at that. Make up shit as you go along. Link to the proof. Oh yeah, I've read Solzhenitsyn, too. I didn't remember this particular story, but thanks to lots of others out there whose mental cobwebs aren't as thick as mine.

And then there's the utter incoherence of his response to the what's your definition of rich question. It's a long excerpt, but worth reading unless you actually caught him blathering this nonsense on the tube over the weekend.

“Some of the richest people I’ve ever known in my life are the most unhappy. I think that rich is — should be defined by a home, a good job and education and the ability to hand to our children a more prosperous and safer world than the one that we inherited. I don’t want to take any money from the rich. I want everybody to get rich. I don’t believe in class warfare or redistribution of the wealth. But I can tell you for example there are small businessmen and women who are working 16 hours a day, seven days a week that some people would classify as, quote, ‘rich,’ my friends, who want to raise their taxes and raise their payroll taxes. Let’s have — keep taxes low. Let’s give every family in America a $7,000 tax credit for every child they have. Let’s give them a $5,000 refundable tax credit to go out and get the health insurance of their choice. Let’s not have the government take over the health care system in America.

“So I think if you’re just talking about income, how about $5 million. But seriously, I don’t think you can — I don’t think, seriously that — the point is that I’m trying to make here seriously — and I’m sure that comment will be distorted, but the point is — the point is — the point is that we want to keep people’s taxes low and increase revenues. And my friend, it was not taxes that mattered in America in the last several years. It was spending. Spending got completely out of control. We spent money in a way that mortgaged our kids futures. My friends, we spent $3 million of your money to study the DNA of bears in Montana. Now I don’t know if that was a paternity issue or a criminal issue, but the point is — but the point is it was $3 million of your money. It was your money. “And you know, we laugh about it, but we cry and we should cry because the Congress is supposed to be careful stewards of your tax dollars. so what did they just do in the middle of an energy crisis when in California we are paying $4 a gallon for gas, went on vacation for five weeks. I guarantee you, two things they never miss, a pay raise and a vacation. And we should stop that and call them back and not raise your taxes. We should not and cannot raise taxes in tough economic times. So it doesn’t matter really what my definition of rich is because I don’t want to raise anybody’s taxes.”

Say whaaaa???

I'm seeing some stirrings in the blogosphere about McBush's performance over the weekend and I'm guess it's not complimentary stirrings. Although nobody in the media ever really criticizes the old man - since he's a POW and all. God forbid anybody criticizes McInsane 'cuz he's a POW. McPOW can't handle the truth. Guess McPOW can't handle being told he fucked up. Guess McPOW is just a pussy with a purple heart.

He'll get away with lying yet again, but it won't win him or his party the election this time.
