The cause of gridlock in Washington

Conservative folks will tell you that the Republicans in Congress have no choice but to “obstruct and delay” overreaching Democrats. Government must be ground to a halt you see. If it’s not, Democrats will certainly turn the United States into a country only a communist like Trotsky could love. Well, that’s an entertaining story but […]

Voter suppression vs. fraud

ACORN and the topic of vote fraud – actually voter registration fraud – have been in the news a lot lately. This is because of John McCain and other Republicans want you to crumple into the fetal position whenever you hear “ACORN.” McCain said this during his 3rd debate with Barack Obama: [ACORN] is now […]

Roundup for Monday 10/20/2008

It’s pretty screwed up that we don’t have good medical records for either of the presidential candidates. Especially since one of them is ancient and has repeated bouts with cancer. Even worse, neither VP candidate has released any medical records at all? What are Biden and Palin hiding? And Palin, where is your press conference?  […]

Death throes of the McCain campaign

Pretend you’re John McCain. Since Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were effectively nationalized in early September, the economy – not your strongsuit – has been in the spotlight. Combine that with your fanatical support for an unpopular war and our failed president, a dangerous healthcare plan, proposed cuts to Medicare and Medicaid, an unqualified and […]

Dü-ba-dü-ba-debate! » Skip down to my conclusion « 8:15pm I’m eating pizza and cooling some beer (Big Boss Bad Penny) in the fridge in preparation for liveblogging the debate. Luckily, I won’t have to work too hard on my analysis tonight. According to an ad leaked this morning, McCain has already won. 8:45pm If Nader […]

McCain unfit to be president – Roundup

The latest fake ass outrage from the McCain camp coupled with a new deeply dishonest ad has set off a firestorm in the blogosphere (I still hate that word). It is no longer disputable that McCain is running a dishonorable campaign based principally on outright lies and character assassination. Pretty much the same tactics that […]

McCain's Tiny-'gate'

McCain has a new advertisement, titled “Tiny,” that attempts to set a new low in the political game of taking your opponent out of context. Here’s the ad: For those without sound, the narrator in McCain’s ad states the following: “Obama says Iran is a ‘tiny’ country. ‘Doesn’t pose a serious threat.’ Terrorism? Destroying Israel? […]
