More Meet the Press Fun with John McLame

I think they’re keeping the wrong damned candidate off the Sunday talk show circuit: Total meltdown for McSame on “Meet the Press” this morning. Watch how defensive he gets when Brokaw’s cites poll after poll that indicates people don’t think Palin is qualified to be Vice President. “Because?! Not qualified…because?!” he snaps. Then, after some …

Dead Heat

Darcy Burner has withstood a firestorm, including a hit-job by the Seattle Times, and managed a near-miracle: Research 2000 for Daily Kos. 10/21-23. Likely voters. MoE ±5% (10/5-7 results). Reichert (R) 46 (49)Burner (D) 46 (41) Now that’s a sight for sore eyes, huh? The Right, on the retreat nationwide, has decided that this will …

Holy Fucking Shit Batman! The AZ Reprise

Dos mas. DOS FUCKING MAS!! The two most recent polls show that Senator Obama has cut into John McCain’s once seemingly insurmountable lead in…. his home state of Arizona. Long considered a given for John McCain, Arizona’s ten electoral votes are an absolutely necessary component of his path to 270. Perhaps more important than those …

It’s Not Just the “Occasional Nut” Getting Violent

Congressman Frank Wolf (R-VA) really doesn’t like to answer questions, and is more than happy to let his thugs beat citizens asking about tax policy: On Friday, two Feder staffers approached Congressman Wolf in a public location to ask him some questions. Two different individuals who were accompanying Congressman Wolf (staffers? relatives? friends?) assaulted the …

Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. A while back, I mentioned that Bush likely wouldn’t leave office without starting more wars. Looks like he has indeed decided to go out with a bang: Seems the US attacked a village 10 miles inside Syria, two helicopters landed and disbursing commandos who then killed a bunch of, …

Sunday Sensational Science

Flies like us. We had a pet fly for a few weeks one summer in Page, AZ. Friendly little bugger – he liked to hang out with us in the kitchen, never caused trouble, and would sit contentedly on a knee cleaning himself while we chatted. We felt a kinship with him. Turns out there …

Yet Another Reason to Vote for Obama

Aside from his policy, leadership qualities, intelligence, caring, and other excellent things too numerous to list, he actually used Batman to hammer McCain in a political speech: “It’s like Robin getting mad at Batman,” he says of McCain’s recent efforts to distance himself from Bush. McCain as Bush’s sidekick. Masterful. I adore this man. On …

Mormon Mafia Getting Asses Kicked

The Mormon Church is in lust with Prop 08, which would amend California’s constitution to destroy same-sex couples their chance at wedded bliss. They’ve spent upwards of $10 million, deployed doorknockers, engaged in extortion, and made a general nuisance of themselves trying to legislate their morality. If you’re in California, you’ve likely gotten a phone …

Happy Hour Discurso

Today’s opining on the public discourse. I’m not psychic, don’t even believe in psychic powers – and yet, my spider-sense is tingling. I do believe we are about to witness a bloodbath: The Lord of the Flies climate at McCain campaign headquarters continues, with a pro-Palin faction reportedly at odds with the loyal Bushies McCain …
