"Senator McCain and his operatives are gambling
that he can distract you with smears rather than talk to you about substance.
They'd rather try to tear our campaign down... It's what you do when you're out of
touch, out of ideas and running out of time..."
-- Obama, landing a strong uppercut to the Old Man's chin,Link
Keep hitting him, Barack, harder with every punch.
Hit him until your arms feel like they're going to fall off,
then continue hitting him long after that - he deserves it.

Investors took a bleak view of the future, seeing
no end to the crisis in the near term.
If this happened under a Democrat, the GOP would be out in force saying,
"This is what happens when you trust a Democrat
with power," but we're
too nice and we're too worried about 'playing fair' to score some points
off of this.
Not only is America losing their savings and their future, we have to

Excerpt: Sarah palins post-Couric/Fey comeback at last
week's VP debate was a turning point in the campaign.
But if she "won," as her indulgent partisans
and press claque would have it, the loser was not Joe Biden.
It was McCain. With a month to go, the election
is now an Obama-Palin race - about "the future,"
as Palin kept saying Thursday night - and the
only person who doesn't seem to know it is Mr. Past,
poor old John McCain.
McCain is looking increasingly shaky, whether
he's repeating his "Miss Congeniality" joke twice in
the same debate or speaking from notecards even
when reciting a line for (literally) the 17th time
McCain's "dismaying temperament," as George Will
labeled it, only thickens the concerns.
We didn't know it at the time, but it would seem that picking Palin
really killed his chances.
But the religio-wacko right loves that she's unqualified, so we might
see her again in 2012.
"Faced with unprecedented financial crisis,
McCain's standard response is to talk about wiping out earmarks and eliminating
waste, fraud and abuse. Memo to Mr. McCain: Waste, fraud and abuse are the only
things holding the system together at this point." -- Jonah Goldberg,

Subject: Election Prediction
- Martial Law declared by W
I've said since Bush signed the Military Commissions
Act of 2006 that he was going to stage
some kind of attack on us, or maybe it's the
financial crisis going on now, and declare martial law
and cancel the elections.
This is the second time I am sending in this prediction
and I hope you print it,
although I also hope I am totally wrong.
I wonder if "the martials" would take orders from that failure of a
Excerpt: Biden and Palin were talking to two different
Americas Thursday night. Actually, that's unfair to Biden;
he was trying to talk to everyone. I can say
for certain, though, that Sarah Palin was talking to -- and
winking at -- her own private Idaho, and for
long stretches of the debate, it was an unnerving experience.
But the pit bull in lipstick was back. After her
disarming "Hey, can I call you Joe?"
Palin was vicious, with a winning smile. After
a passionate Biden plea to "walk with me in my neighborhood,"
in Delaware and Scranton, where "the middle class
has gotten the short end," she ridiculed him:
"Say it ain't so, Joe, there you go again! Pointing
Have we ever seen her be nice? Ever?
She was a buzz saw the night America met her and she hasn't let up.
She reminds me of Ann Coulter - without the Adam's apple.
Excerpt: With the party already struggling to generate
enthusiasm for its brand, Republican strategists fear that
an outpouring of public anger generated by Congress's
struggle to pass a rescue package for Wall Street
may contribute to a disaster at the polls for
the GOP in November.
"The crisis has affected the entire ticket," said
Jan van Lohuizen, a Republican consultant who handled
the polling for Bush's reelection campaign. "The
worse the state's economy, the greater the impact."
In the Senate, Fascist Dogs are teetering in North
Carolina, Kentucky and Georgia because of
the economic crisis, according to several GOP
strategists closely tracking the contests.
"Two and a half weeks, we were losing three to
four Senate races," said one Republican strategist.
"Now we will lose six to eight."
If we can get 61 in the senate, we can kick that backstabber Joe Kissyface
out on his ass.
Excellent work - wish I knew who to thank.

I wish I had written that comment because it is
but normally when I get calls soliciting money...whether
campaign donations or a charity ....I just tell
them to ask Bush
for the money.....he apparently has billions
In the debates Sarah Palin talked about Bush as
he were history saying "there's just too much,
too much finger-pointing and looking backward."
Unfortunately Bush isn't history yet.
Someone should remind Mrs. Palin that Bush is
still president today and we will continue
to be stuck with him as president for the next
3 months. McCain and Palin would like to
run away from Republicans and pretend they aren't
Republicans. But they are Republicans
and McCain is one of those Republicans who created
the mess we are in today.
Excerpt: Gov. Sarah Palin delivered a debate-night wakeup
call to all those elite, East Coast liberal, pro-Obama,
anti-Main Street, mainstream media critics who
say a Joe Six Pack hockey mom can't be president.
She's the spunky, lunch-bucket, maverick, moose-carvin',
Putin-huntin', pitbull America never knew it was waiting for.
Palin erased all doubt about her ability to awkwardly
infuse McCain-Bush talking points with a brisk
Alaska breeze. Cleverly adopting the disarming
verbal strategy of an eager student trying to stretch two
pages of material into a 10-page report, she
peppered her homespun spin with W-esque presidential folksiness.
Excerpt: When Sarah Palin winks, the world blinks.
Her winks have become as much a part of her repertoire
as her folksy Alaskanisms. It's just her
style, like a coke hooker trying to get her nose candied.
But it's Sarah's flirting that has caught the
attention of the world. Photos of Sarah doing the wink-a-wink
routinely appear in the print newspapers in Japan,
Taiwan, France, Poland, Russia and Israel. Her wink
has gone global. It's the Palin trademark.
But what kind of wink it is? And should it be
"Sarah Palin's wink is kind of like waving a red
cloth in front of a bull, said one observer.
"She winked," said a male blogger on the NYWTimes
web site. "I can just see LBJ saying:
"I ask for your help, and God's." [WINK]. Or
Ronald Reagan saying: "They slipped the
surly bonds of Earth to touch the face of God."
Said another blogger about Winky Dink: "If you
don't give a hoot about substance, and if jaw-dropping
contradictions impress you, and a folksy-phony
style turns you on, and you don't mind twisted English
and flawed logic - and you thrill to the sight
of a candidate for the second highest office of the land
brazenly flirting with her audience - then 'Winky
Dink' might just be your gal."
"She came off as too folksy to me," says a 23-year-old
engineer of Palin's performance.
"I could have done without the winks."
Who told Palin to wink?
Who decided this election could be won by an actual harlot,
instead of the usual I'll-do-anything-to-win, GOP-style harlot?
Etymology: Middle French, from Old Italian
from Latin creditum something entrusted to another,
loan, from neuter of creditus, past participle

The granting of credit means "I trust you to

Nobody trusts Wall Street right now.
They've been exposed as lying whores and thieves.
The teacher was away (the Democrat) and the substitute
teacher (the no-regulations GOP) let the class
run wild and now they've destroyed the entire
school and somebody has to pay to rebuild it it.
Wouldn't it be nice if the Democrats stood up and said,
"This is what happens when the government gets out of the way, which is what the GOP
stands for. If you've lost everything, or maybe just a lot, remember it was the Republicans who said that
'Government is the problem,' remember?"
You know they'd be doing it to us, but we're
not doing it to them because
we're too nice and some people might not think it was fair to blame
the guilty - so we don't.
...and we wonder why the voters only elect us when the Republican is
Excerpt: Hundreds of thousands of new cars and trucks
that would have quickly made their way to people's
driveways a year ago are now stacking up on dealer
lots across the country, with potential buyers
worried about whether they'll keep their jobs,
be able to pay for gas, or qualify for a car loan.
For auto dealers already suffering under the worst
U.S. sales downturn in 15 years, the increasing cost
of the credit they use to keep inventory in their
showrooms means every Ford Focus and Grand Cherokee
with a sale sticker in the window is chipping
away at dealers' razor-thin profit margins every day and
threatening to send more of them out of business.
"McCain has become the kind of politician he
ran against in 2000. He has embraced those he once denounced as "agents of intolerance",
promised more drilling and deeper tax cuts, even compromised his vaunted opposition to
torture. Intent on winning the presidency at all costs, he has reassembled the very team that so viciously
smeared him and his family eight years ago, selecting as his running mate a born-again
moose hunter whose only qualification for office is her ability to electrify Rove's base. And he has
engaged in a "practice of politics" so deceptive that even Rove himself has denounced it, saying
that the outright lies in McCain's campaign ads go "too far" and fail the 'truth test'."
-- Tim Dickenson in Rolling Stone, Link
Excerpt: Karl Rove projects that Obama would get at least
273 electoral votes - three more than are needed
to win - if the presidential election were held
today. But Rove says this race is "susceptible to rapid changes,"
so no definite prediction is possible.
The remarkable forecast from the architect of
Bush's failures underscores the straits that have rapidly
enveloped McCain and that stewardess he picked
as the banking and credit crisis spread.
