I now believe that John McCain doesn't even know who John McCain is anymore. 10 years ago he was a straight talking maverick. Two years ago he was still a little strange but much more party line. Today he is borderline tea party. The latest wacky fun? He's suggesting that illegal aliens are looking to […]
While it does seem a bit odd that Barack Obama would choose Pastor Rick Warren (best known for allegedly favoring John McCain in a debate at Warren's church, and, for those who enjoy such things, a certain lunatic conspiracy theory) to officiate at Obama's inauguration, it's probably a better choice than Jeremiah Wright. That's about […]
. . . it is to have a thankless plumber.
Both Obama and McCain will be interviewed (recorded earlier) on Monday Night Football. Does anyone think this is a good idea? Has anyone been thinking "man, I wonder what sort of insights Chris Berman has on the presidential election?" Just imagine the forced banter.. John "MCCLOUD!" McCain. Or, "Barack Obama. From?" "Harvard." This can really […]
Yesterday my five-year-old daughter announced that she wants John McCain to win because he has white hair and she loves him. My seven-year-old son said he wants Barack Obama to win because he "totally rocks." The nearly two-year-old is the swing voter. Judging from her polling results at a party last night, she'll vote for […]
In the past 24 hours, since news emerged that Obama is leading in a couple of polls in normally Republican North Carolina, I've gotten six calls from what are probably 527 proxies for one or another of Obama or McCain. I guess I'll have to vote for Bob Barr to show them.
Remember those glory days when the Republican National Convention was a huge drinking game called find the one black guy? Well, those days are over. Not because of a dramatic influx of people of color, but because Fox has a new marching order. Show lots of shots of women. Especially young women. It's a little […]
Specifically, they insist on it. Yesterday CNN's Campbell Brown interviewed McCain spokesman Tucker Bounds. After commiserating over having ridiculous names, Brown did something nearly unheard of in modern political reporting — she actually tried to get Brown to answer the fucking question put to him — which in this case was about Sarah Palin's foreign […]
With apologies to Jeff Foxworthy (although, really, shouldn't he be apologizing to us?) If you aren't exactly sure how many houses you own, you might be rich.
Say you're an office manager married to an Amtrak foreman and drive a 1993 car and live in an apartment in Queens, and somebody notices that (1) you've recently given $61,600 to McCain's campaign and the RNC, most of it days after McCain endorsed offshore drilling, and (2) the business you are an office manager […]
