Excerpt: Sarah Palin has received the equivalent of $2,500
in clothes per
Saks Fifth Avenue (RNC spent $50,000) and Neiman
Marcus (a $75,000 spree).
Who wants to donate so Palin can have $2500 in clothes every day? If I was a rich Republican handjob, this would piss me off.
This story has the potential to dampen enthusiasm
among GOP activists and donors at a
critical point in the race. It also creates a
huge PR headache for the McCain ticket as it
seeks to make inroads among voters worried about
the current economic crisis.
I do believe you bastards have been caught.
Koresh knows your Barracuda needed some new clothes - but $2500 per
"Even Dan Quayle, with whom Palin is often
compared because of her age and inexperience on the national scene,

Excerpt: Voters using touch-screen voting machines for
early voting in two West Virginia counties have
complained that when they tried to vote for Democrats,
the machine registered Republican, instead.
When they tried to vote for Obama, the machine
recorded a check in the box for McCain.
Three other voters in Putnam County say they
had the same problem.
Excerpt: Three Putnam County voters say electronic voting
machines changed their votes from
Democrats to Republicans when they cast early
ballots last week.
This is the second West Virginia county where
voters have reported this problem.
Last week, three voters in Jackson County told
The Charleston Gazette their electronic
vote for "Barack Obama" kept flipping to "John
In both counties, Republicans are responsible
for overseeing elections.
Both county clerks said the problem is isolated.
They also blamed voters for not being more careful.
"People make mistakes more than machines," said
Jackson County Clerk Jeff Waybright.
Odd that we're finding this out now - two weeks
ahead of time.
Maybe everyone who can vote should vote now.
We should also make early voting available in
every state so
all those "mistakes" and "broken machines" can
be fixed in time..
Excerpt: In a classic example of confusing ballot design,
a "straight party" vote in North Carolina does not include the presidential contest. If you
want to vote for a president, you need to make an additional
mark in the presidential contest even if you've
chosen a straight party vote. (See detailed instructions in the first
This policy has been in place for over 40 years
(added by Dixiecrats in 1967), and historically has resulted
in at least a 1% "undervote" -- people not choosing
a presidential candidate. With huge numbers of new voters
this year, there's a lot of concerns that it
could be even higher. While there are signs up in polling places,
(most?) poll workers give instructions as they
give the ballots out, there are already many reports of people mis-voting.
says the 1st took an oath to protect the Constitution, blah, blah,
blah -- the problem is
no matter how "smartest and most professional"
they are, they are not allowed to question orders.
If Bush gives the order to attack Americans,
they aren't going to ask questions -- they will attack.
They aren't going to question whether their order
is superseded by their oath to protect the Constitution.
They aren't going to question whether, or not,
the folks they are attacking are "enemies of the Constitution"
or enemies of the President. They will
act a they have been trained to act and execute their orders.
The fact that Frank further characterizes them
as, "the meanest" gives pause for concern. Actually, several pauses.
When I was in college I saw a Billy Jack movie, maybe The
Trial of Billy Jack. In the movie,
the mean soldiers surrounded the school and giggled as their snipers
murdered the little children.
That make me so mad I felt like voting Republican - then I came to
You and I have a difference of opinion of what our soldiers will do.
If they are confronted by armed men, I believe they'll shoot back.
But if women and children march in the street with signs, do you think
our soldiers will giggle and murder them like a Billy Jack movie?
Do you think the generals will order their men to protect Der Fuhrer?
Do you think the Republicans will allow Bush to go "all in" on godhood?
I sure hope we never find out, but maybe it's time for "all good liberals"
to reassess their pathological (and illogical) hatred of any and all
I can't hold off the federal government by myself :)
What your retired Navy man overlooked is that
this brigade is being deployed to train larger groups,
both police and militias, to counter any civil
unrest. They're just the seed corn, the real harvest will come
from outfits like CACI and Blackwater.
Oaths to protect and defend the Constitution have
been notoriously gossamer among certain military types
(can you say Ollie North? John Poindexter?).
Not to mention that this brigade 'pacified' Falloujah by making it
a reeking ruin. I'm the farthest thing from a
conspiracy theorist you can get, but I'm getting nervous.
When you add to that Obama's being so damned comfortable
with FISA, faith-based initiatives, and has
taken no stand against the use of contractors
like Blackwater-well, let's just say it took Nixon to go to China,
a Democrat to end welfare, and I'm increasingly
afraid it's going to be Obama who brings about the full-blown,
no-shit, balls-to-the-wall police state.
I hope I'm wrong.
Oh, boy, do I hope I'm wrong.
Scott Peterson (no, not that one)
Scott, there are over 200 million guns in the states.
They would need an army of millions to keep troops in the streets.
As Chris Rock once said, "If Bush thinks it was tough taking Baghdad,
I'd like to see him take Baltimore."
Excerpt: George Will, Limbaugh, Buchanan - they are bigots.
They believe that America means conservativism
and conservatism stands for the preservation
of an Ameirca perpetually dominated by wealthy white males...
The GOP is a sanctuary for racists. It is
a side-effect of political correctness that we never discuss why
they don't attract minorities or better educated
constituencies, and are stuck with bed-wetting nutbags...
As long as people like Limbaugh, Hannity, O'Reilly
and Michael Savage pollute the airwaves, answerable
to no one and accountable only to their bankers,
we really won't see the end of this stuff."
Excerpt: Sarah Palin describes herself as a "hard-core
pro-lifer" and expresses confidence
that in spite of disheartening polls, "putting
this in God's hands, that the right thing
for America will be done at the end of the day
on Nov. 4."
Watching McCain reminds me of a "This Modern World"
comic I saw on your site 3 years ago.
It is my theory that McCain has secretly been
trying to get a democrat in the WH for the last couple of years.
I know he's never been fully on our side, but
more than many and with the number of mistakes he makes
every time his poll numbers go up, it's hard
to argue that he isn't trying to intentionally lose.
Once I saw him pick Palin, I knew that had to
be the case.
I think he's going to put his full support behind
Obama on Nov 1.

Russ, if McCain's trying to lose he needs to try harder :)
Excerpt: He's bordering on arrogance. The dictionary
defines the word as an "offensive display of superiority
or self-importance; overbearing pride." Obama
may not be offensive or overbearing, but he can be a
bit too cocky for his own good.
He told reporters in July that he would overcome
Hillary's lead because "to know me is to love me."
A few months later, he said, "Every place is
Obama country once Obama's been there."
True, there's a certain amount of tongue-in-cheekiness
to such remarks - (Yeah, like 100%) almost as if Obama doesn't want to take his adoring
crowds and political ascent too seriously.
He was surely kidding when he told supporters
in January that by the time he was done speaking
"a light will shine down from somewhere."
So if you know he was kidding, why bring it up?
Maybe Obama's mistake was letting a prick like
you get close.
"It will light upon you," he continued. "You will
experience an epiphany. And you will say to yourself,
I have to vote for Barack. I have to do it."
But both Obama and his wife, Michelle, ooze a sense of entitlement.
Every word out of Obama's mouth the last two years has been discussed
That claim that they "ooze entitlement" can be made against anybody
- so why do it here?
Clearly, this Fourner prick doesn't like Obama so the Whore AP gives
him the green light
to put his hate into words - and they call that journalism?
Dude, you totally glassed over that Biden "Obama
will be tested" comment.
What exactly does Joe know that we don't?
Oh yeah, and Joe Lieberman
said the same thing, oh yeah Colin Powell agrees,
and so does Madeline Albright.
What are we being psycholigally prepared for,
and why ain't they gonna try and stop it?
Dude, if McCain wins the people ill hate him,
and we might have a chance to get a real American in office in 2012.
Obama is coming, Jack, and it's false flag time.
Democrats will love the new war, the draft and
the Trilateral currency.
I can't believe you still run a Democrat site.
Rex, I don't know what to say - but please don't vote for McCain.
