Unless you're planning to go back in time and edit out the attacks on Obama, too fucking late.

What's grimly fascinating is watching the mechanics of this. The national media simply doesn't have any mechanism for sounding the alarm if things start to go seriously off the rails. Their whole existence is predicated on a stable idea of "business as usual", so they literally can't ever say "WTF?", because in a sense they would be calling out themselves. The show must go on.

McCain could have nominated a mildly retarded child, and the national press would have dutifully "interviewed" it, with perhaps a tone of slightly paternal reproach for being "fuzzy on the details."

"Now, Skeeter, you say that the international banking system is "Nugga nugga boom boom", but I have to tell, even some members of your own party think this is a little simplistic. Your response?"

The best comedy/horror show ever.

 

Your = the possessive of you, as in, "Your name is Tom, right?" or "What is your name?"

 

You're = a contraction of YOU + ARE as in, "You are right" --> "You're right."

Ultimate irony: Palin calls Kissenger "beyond naïve".

In a sane universe, this would be the last straw.

Seriously. Is this the fucking 'X Factor'? 'American President'?

SHE IS ASKING TO BE VOTED THE SECOND MOST POWERFUL PERSON IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.[/i]

This, alone, should cause a minor crisis in the stock market.

Is the Republican Party really trying to fuck it up for everyone? The rest of us have to live with the consequences of your choices and your crises. FOR FUCK'S SAKE.

In Alaska, we have small-town values where a gift is a gift.

Quote:
Records show that 23 of the gifts were offered during Palin's early months in office, when she was pushing the legislature to address a state corruption scandal by passing a package of ethics reforms. She accepted 18 gifts after the law passed in July 2007. Among other provisions, the law forbade executive branch officials from taking gifts from lobbyists or from interests with pending state business.

I just want to make sure everyone understands what this means. She was unfamiliar with her 'own' legislation.

Much like the president they don't seem to care. Remember what I said when Bush was elected again : " If you think the first term was bad just wait. The gloves will be off this time because he has nothing to lose. "

And now the republicans want us to vote for another set of bad guys.

Bush has done so much to screw up this country and now this plus the economy is like one last kiss off.

From our Sarah Palin supporters: did you see the second part of the Couric interview, where she's talking about the bail-out?

Could you please tell us why she wasn't incomprehensibly incoherent? Did she not speak total gibberish -- shockingly, toe-curlingly, gobsmackingly inept?

I'd like to hear what you have to say in support, and how after this performance you can *consider* taking any action that could land her in the White House?

COURIC: Why isn’t it better, Governor Palin, to spend $700 billion helping middle-class families struggling with health care, housing, gas and groceries? Allow them to spend more and put more money into the economy? Instead of helping these big financial institutions that played a role in creating this mess?

PALIN: That’s why I say, I like every American I’m speaking with were ill about this position that we have been put in where it is the tax payers looking to bailout.

But ultimately, what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the health care reform that is needed to help shore up the economy– Helping the — Oh, it’s got to be about job creation too. Shoring up our economy and putting it back on the right track. So health care reform and reducing taxes and reining in spending has got to accompany tax reductions and tax relief for Americas.

And trade we’ve got to see trade as opportunity, not as a competitive scary thing. But 1 in 5 jobs being created in the trade sector today. We’ve got to look at that as more opportunity. ALL those things under the umbrella of job creation.

This bailout is a part of that.

Is this code for the head wound demographic? Are there actually people who can watch that and yell "You tell 'em, Sarah!"

Any Palin fans want to take this?

I think Republican's only hope is that this is some sort of devious strategy. She lowers expectations so far that simply stringing together a series of words that actually form an intelligible thought/meaning will be declared a "win"

Honestly? I think we've entered a period where the usual right wing narratives have simply broken down. Beyond continuing to reflexively snarl about liberals and elites, they literally don't know what to think. The usual house organs are offering conflicting ideas that are changing rapidly, and most of that is inside baseball, fine grain stuff. Big picture? No clue.

McCain's a genius, McCain's an idiot, Palin's the savior, she's a boat anchor, free markets rule, we must Do Something, Immigration is the Most Important Thing Ever, The Surge Is Working, WHY AREN'T WE TALKING ABOUT TERROR???!!!

I've been saying this for a while, but it appears to me that the Republican Party has completed its transformation into an entirely hollow engine of theatrics. If they can't find the wedge issue talking point, they have nothing coherent to say.

Small government, big government, spend more, spend less, attack, retreat, kiss up to minorities, kick 'em in the ass, celebrate Main Street, rob them blind, fight the final fight for freedom, Iraq is what now?

Who's in charge? Is the Republican Party the party of grim realists? Prudent bankers? Guns 'n God culture warriors? Tight fisted fiscal hawks? America First über patriots? Ditto heads?

Can ditto heads be counted on to say three things in a row that hang together and sound like an actual world view, any more, beyond "liberals suck, liberals suck, liberals suck?"

Worked for Bush in 2000. Remember how the media and all the Republican pundits went on and on and on about Gore's supposedly SUPERIOR debating skills and how if Bush just kept himself from falling over he'd win.

And that exactly what happened.

God I love this country.

McCain Suspends Campagin, Wins Election (with BO's help)

Mark it down. Press it is a book. Record it in permanent ink. McCain just won the election today, and he did it by suspending his campaign and watching his opponent react in an incomprehensibly stupid way.

I was hesitant to reverse my position on McCain's campaign, mind you. Up until the Palin selection, his campaign was slow, unresponsive, out of touch with its own message, and generally not "good." Since that selection, it's been positively brilliant. But today puts it over the top. Whether his decision to suspend is politically motivated or not, it's a good one, both for the country and his political future.

I'm watching Obama's reaction live now. It is an unmitigated disaster. His themes have been:

1. The debate should go on (Friday night).

2. <veiled attack on McCain> "The President will have to do more than one thing at a time." Cheap trick, Mr. Obama. Cheap trick. </attack>

3. " I'm here to be helpful if anyone needs me." This contrasts with McCain's leadership or perceived leadership on issue. This was a major theme of his speech today and it cannot be denied. It reinforces the perception that he's a speech giver, not a leader.

4. The best and 'most important' thing we can do is candidates is come out with a joint, bi-partisan statement. Oh my friggin' lord.

5. Repeat veiled attack on McCain (see #2). Follow up with surrogates. I'm watching one now. Harry Reid said that "we need leadership, not a campaign photo op." Wow.

6. Repeat #2


I never dreamed McCain had it in him to be this good. Nor did I think Obama's campaign could be this stupid. What is he going to do if McCain doesn't show up Friday night? What if Congress is in session and Obama's not there?

And he actually has followers there. Good for him. Stay there. This topic would have been skinned faster than a dead moose in Alaska.

Man, the last time I went to MacNN's political forums was 2001. After an influx of n00bs, I left and never looked back. Now I wish I didn't.

That said, I was rushing to get out of here, no excuse, but he still, as some like to say, "bitch slapped him".

Obviously meant Palin was pathetic, but still.
