As a Conservative, I Must say I do Quite Like the Cut of of this Obama Fellow's Jib
When my late father T. Coddington Van Voorhees VI founded the iconoclastic conservative journal National Topsider in 1948, he famously declared that "Now is the time for all good conservative helmsmen to hoist the mizzen, pour the cocktails, and steer this damned schooner hard starboard." In the 60 years since he first uttered it after one-too-many Cosmopolitans at one of Pamela Harriman's notorious foreign policy black tie balls, father's pithy bon mot has served as a rallying cry for conservatives from Greenwich to Chevy Chase. Today, I say it's time for we conservatives to once again grab the rigging and set sail with the flotilla of the true conservative in this race: Barack Obama.

Its all White peoples fault. Hey! Barry! Your dear grandmother is white. Just sayin'
Which one shall it be? Our friendly Marxist must decide! BTW, this was in 2001. (h/t capitalist piglet).
Please pay special attention - Senator Obama states the Warren court wasn't that radical because it "didn't break down constraints of the Constitution as laid down by the Founding Fathers".
The political and economic philosophy of Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels in which the concept of class struggle plays a central role in understanding society's allegedly inevitable development from bourgeois oppression under capitalism to a socialist and ultimately classless society.
- Any of various theories or systems of social organization in which the means of producing and distributing goods is owned collectively or by a centralized government that often plans and controls the economy.
- The stage in Marxist-Leninist theory intermediate between capitalism and communism, in which collective ownership of the economy under the dictatorship of the proletariat has not yet been successfully achieved.

Zombie: Billy Ayers' Forgotten Communist Manifesto, 'Prairie Fire'Posted using ShareThisFor those that think Bill Ayers isn't important to this election, that he simply did some bad things a long time ago and now is no more than a respectable college professor that Barack Obama knows in passing, this is for you.
In this forgotten piece, Ayers declares he is a communist, and admits the Weather Underground fully intended to wage a violent revolution with the goal to overthrow the American government. This group was not made of up of hippies from back in the day, nor was Ayers "just a member" as Barack Obama declared in the last debate. Ayers FOUNDED this group and committed criminal acts, treasonous acts, against our Country. This isn't my opinion - Ayers readily admits and even lists the crimes he is proud he committed - acts of which he wishes he had done more.We are a guerrilla organization. We are communist women and men, underground in the United States for more than four years. We are deeply affected by the historic events of our time in the struggle against U.S. imperialism.
Our intention is to disrupt the empire, to incapacitate it, to put pressure on the cracks, to make it hard to carry out its bloody functioning against the people of the world, to join the world struggle, to attack from the inside. (emphasis mine)We need a revolutionary communist party in order to lead the struggle, give coherence and direction to the fight, seize the power and build a new society.Is Barack Obama a new chapter in Ayers' plan to seize power and control? Some of the words are chillingly similar to Senator Obama's like "join the world". How often do we hear we need to be a part of the World Community and worry about how the "world" views us, even campaigning in foreign nations? How often does Senator Obama invoke the war in Iraq as the US attacking the "world" unjustly?
Has Ayers decided to attack from the inside again? Has maturity taught him bombing won't achieve the ends he seeks, but getting a candidate that follows the plays outlined by Saul Alinksy IS? Ayers is evil, but he isn't stupid and is fully capable of orchestrating such a thing - taking advantage of the liberals disassociation with logic in the media, in Hollywood, in politics and on the street. Just in case, they begin shutting down dissent through legal intimidation and other tactics. The Biden choice was so odd, except he is really dumb and probably wouldn't notice what was really going on around him, plus he was a useful tool. He can go out there and lie through his teeth - just make stuff up, and no one would question as Biden's dissociation with reality happened years ago. I've been worried, I will grant that. I've avoided conspiracy theorists because they tend to be kooks - but now? I've crossed over to scared and want Senator Obama to come clean on his relationship with Ayers and Company and thoroughly disclose his background to include his numerous last names. I want full and complete sentences, not "hope and change". Real, hard facts this time. I want Obama to point out an association with anyone who can't be linked to some radical or criminal group, I want the media to do its damn job and go look into Michelle's past and the Obama trashcans just like the Palin's - before its too late.

By Lewis Diuguid, Kansas City Star Editorial Page columnist
The "socialist" label that Sen. John McCain and his GOP presidential running mate Sarah Palin are trying to attach to Sen. Barack Obama actually has long and very ugly historical roots.
J. Edgar Hoover, director of the FBI from 1924 to 1972, used the term liberally to describe African Americans who spent their lives fighting for equality...
McCain and Palin have simply reached back in history to use an old code word for black. It set whites apart from those deemed unAmerican and those who could not be trusted during the communism scare.
Shame on McCain and Palin.

What is disappointing about it, however, is that it stabs in the back those serving in the armed forces. The person Powell has chosen to support has based the majority of his campaign on the war in Iraq being unjust. In fact, Obama and his supporters have yelled from the mountain tops that Bush lied to get us in this war, they misled us on pre-war intelligence and are all a bunch of war criminals. General Powell was the most visible supporter and architect of why we went into Iraq! Has General Powell done what he needed to do to avoid the Obama Iraq Inquisition Trials of 2009? Is this why General Powell chose to wait until now rather than 6, 8, 12 months ago? Does he think "Holy cow, this cat might actually get elected and go through with his war crimes trials! Quick, how much is my soul worth?"
The left, of course, is just beside themselves with excitement for this announcement. Why? How do they justify embracing this person who "lied to the American people to start a war" and is a "war criminal"? Supporting Barry wipes the slate clean much like erasing it from the official Obama website suddenly makes it disappear from reality? Barack is trumpeting this as acknowledgement of his foreign policy experience, but again it begs the question: Does Barack not think General Powell would have been present at all those meetings where Rove, Cheney and W dreamed up all that fake pre-war intelligence? If General Powell was so opposed to this invasion, why didn't he stand up and say so when it would have made a difference? Was he lying then? Now?
Right wing pundits are stating General Powell has done this for no other reason but race. Powell did say that wasn't the reason, but went on to state electing a black president would be “electrifying.” Despite serving under 3 Republicans (Reagan, Bush and W) who promoted him to Four Star General, then Secretary of State AND named his son head of the FCC, General Powell feels the party is "narrow" and racist. Though I don't believe its the sole reason, I can't help but feel it played a big part in the decision making process.
This too is disappointing. Supporting, or opposing, any candidate based on their color is wrong. I am unable to wrap my brain around how rabid people get when faced with the idea that some white guy won't vote for a black candidate just because of race, but then are completely OK with the idea of a black guy voting for a black guy purely because of his race. Isn't that really the same thing as the black guy not voting for the white guy because of his race?
Dr. Martin Luther King was pretty clear when his idea of racial equality was a day when his children would live in a nation where they would not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character. There wasn't an exception in that speech allowing for black people to support other black people out of racial solidarity without regard to the suitability for the position the supported black person is seeking.
So, leftists out there, enjoy your Colin Powell endorsement. You've saved us all the inevitable endless loops of the the good General on CNN reviewing the pre-war intelligence with EVIL WAR CRIMINAL and LIAR scrolling across the bottom had he chosen to endorse McCain

Our favorite undead Zombie, who is having to spend a lot of time running away from being recruited by ACORN, has turned up even more evidence that Obama and Ayers' relationship is a bit stronger than the Hope and Change Meister would have you believe.
I'm with he/she/it - there is just NO plausible way Barry didn't know who or what Bill Ayers was.
PS - go read the whole blog - lots of great stuff in there!
and possibly even a bit Alaskan.
Firstly, Joe NEVER said he earned this amount of money - what he said was he wanted to buy a business that would earn this amount of money. But why let facts get in the way of a good quashing free speech moment? Obama modus operendi is to ignore truth and begin an all hands on deck intimidation and smear campaign. In this case he wants to make it about Joe the Person to deflect from the fact BHO revealed his true communist thoughts with is redistribution of wealth comment! When Obama's support for infanticide was being discussed, he attacked Gianna Jesson. When his ties to terrorist Bill Ayers being slightly more than some guy down the street started to be revealed, he attacked Stanley Kurtz. And now its Joe's turn.
Speaking of Bill Ayers, there might be more to this than orginally thought. He just may have been the ghost author of Barry's memoirs -
During the debate, Obama claimed he worked with Ayers on education reform under the auspices of Annenberg being a friend of Ronald Reagan, therefore it couldn't have funded a "radical" education program. Press BS button now, and then read this.
Then there is the ACORN issue. As you may recall, Dear Leader stated he was not really associated with this group with the one SLIGHT exception of their Motor Voter campaign. Turns out this is *shock* a damn lie. Gateway Pundit has an interesting piece on Barry's involvement that shows it was a bit more than one small project, and shows Barry was, in fact, an organizer for this group. We've linked to video showing how involved b. Hussein Obama was in this campaign, and there is more on Obama's big lie here.
Hope and change.
I bet I get called racist for this in 3,2,1...

Economy is ill – market tanked. What say you?
McCain – Thanks to Barry’s incompetent and corrupt friends, the housing market crashed. We must reform this as I have been saying (and have the letter to prove it, where is your letter, Barry?). I don’t like having to use tax payer money to bail out losers, but I am left with no choice at this point, thank you Democrat Congress. Explains another socialist banking plan, but at least apologizes for it. Points out tax cuts must happen, really the only tried and true solution. By the way, Barry is going to tax the living snot out of you, Joe the Plumber!
Obama – As Dear Leader, I will cut taxes for 95% of Americans even though 40% of Americans don’t even PAY taxes. Free money for all! I am not going to tax you, Joe the Plumber! Unless you make over $250K, then all bets are off! Where did I get that number? Dunno, it just sounded good. But I am also going to tax EVIIILLLL corporations. I call it my EVILLLLLL Corporation Tax and the more evil I deem you, the more you pay. Exxon Mobile? Get out the “going out of business” signs! BWHAHAHAHAHA
McCain – Look, World Leader. The
Lots of bad stuff being said to each other. Can’t we all get along?
McCain – He started it. Every time I turn around, he is saying something negative about me – making shiz up even. Today! a George Wallace comparison and very ugly things said. Are you going to repudiate that, Senator Obama?
Obama – no
McCain – see?
Obama – You said I pal around with terrorists and am a liar!
McCain – Only because you do and you are.
Obama – (seething):
On Ayers: I was 8 when Ayers did bad things. Blah blah. We were on a board about school reform – headed by Reagan’s great friend, Annenberg. He is not on my campaign for the last time!
McCain - The “I was only 8” has lost its sparkle. You weren’t 8 when you served on the Annenberg Challenge, and you weren’t 8 when you had your political coming out party at the Ayer’s abode. You weren’t 8 when he was published standing on the American flag 9/11/2001, where he also announced he felt he hadn’t done enough during his Weatherman years. (What should have been added - Oh by the way, it wasn’t some group he joined – it was a domestic terrorist group he FOUNDED. Simply shaking your head saying it isn’t true and deleting references from your website doesn’t cut it – there are documents proving all of the above happened. Tells us, Barry. How’d that school reform thing actually work out? One more thing, did anyone let you know Annenberg was somewhat dead while you served on that board so although eligible to vote under ACORN rules, he was not endorsing your Marxist indoctrination plan. When did anyone accuse you of having Ayers on your campaign staff? The issue isn’t Ayers advising you, it’s the past association we want to know about. I’ll wait why you explain that.
Obama – Stop with the ACORN. I only worked on Motor Voter.
McCain - just motor voter? Seriously? Barry, have you heard of this little thing on the internet called “Youtube”?
The My Running Mate can beat up Your Running Mate question –
Obama on Biden – He has the best foreign quality experience. For example, that brilliant strategy to divide up
Obama on Palin – (invoking Hillary Clinton) She is quite capable.
McCain on Palin –( I think he said she was a “breast of fresh air” and then corrected it – its not running all over the news, so maybe I misheard. If he did say it, that is pretty close to a Biden scale gaffe!) Lots of examples as to how “Senator” Palin took on the Alaskan Good Ole Boys network. (He returned to her correct title of Governor the rest of the evening) knows about energy reform which we need, so yep, she is top notch.
McCain on Biden – well if by qualified you mean he is over 35 and a native born citizen, I suppose he is. (not really, but close enough and that is what he was thinking)
Free Trade! Or Not!
McCain – important for our economy, need to keep going with
Obama – After studying history with Joe Biden, I need to say that NAFTA is Bush’s fault. He used the Rovian Mind Meld which forced
McCain then Hoovered Obama, then McCain drew attention to O’s “eloquence” which is a buzzword for lie.
Health Care -
Obama tells us a little story about 2 laid off ladies with no health insurance, and then rambles on, and on about socialized health care that isn’t really, it’s only socialized if you don’t get it through work.
McCain – the give and take health care plan, free choice, lowered taxes
Obama – companies will stop covering if they find out people can use their own money to buy a plan (but they won’t if they know the government will pick up the tab totally under the Obama plan?)
McCain – if you want socialized medicine, go stand in line for care in
Obama – “Y’all heard my plan”
Obama – I have this little program I like to call the “Whitney Houston Education Reform Act”. I believe our children are our future…
McCain – ok then – I think parents should be able to do what we do, Barry and send them to good schools. Bad teachers, outta there. Use vouchers, they work.
Obama – I don’t like bad teachers either! Ummm..I mean, re-train them 53 times, THEN fire them (sorry teacher’s union, please still send me your cash). Can we sing again? I BELIEVE CHILDREN ARE THE FUTURE, AND I HATE PLUMBERS NAMED JOE….
McCain – after dancing, “I will put in judges who follow the Constitution as it is written and not legislate from the bench” This dingbat over here blocked a great judge and voted against others for ideological reasons.
O – I will put in judges who will think about the Constitution, but then rule for the greater good of the people. I voted against those judges because they don’t believe the Constitution is nuanced.
McCain – Roe v. Wade is a bad decision. Up to states, federalists, but if it was up to me? Nope. Adopt. Better for the child.
O – Roe v. Wade is right on the money in the right to privacy clause written in invisible ink in the constitution. Must have abortion – at all costs. Health of mother.
McCain – eloquence again. Health is stretched to anything. But if you care about health so much, what about those babies born alive that you wouldn’t give care too?
O – no, doctors must do to some oath or something like that. Didn’t matter if I voted no to appease! Plus, babies are burdens.
McCain – we do not need any more taxes. The democrat congress for the last 2 years have screwed us all. Do you REALLY want to put this guy in for the grand finale?
O – I will have the federal gov’t more involved in schools, healthcare, unicorn trade, business and pay for everyone’s house all the while lowering taxes for 95% of the American population. Then some other line of crap - in all honesty I have no idea what he said.
Observation – if Obama answers second, he does great. Why? He repeats the question and then repeats McCain’s answer! If he goes first, he stumbles. Interesting.

By BETH FOUHY, Associated Press Writer 1 hour, 3 minutes ago
HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. - Barack Obama's direction Wednesday night in the third and final presidential debate.With less than three weeks until the Nov. 4 election, the 90-minute debate focusing on the economic crisis offered the Republican senator from Arizona what could be one of his last big chances to persuade voters to give the race another look.sought to change the course of a campaign moving decidedly in
Polls show Obama, the senator from Illinois, with a clear lead nationally and in several key.McCain was keenly aware of the stakes he faced after two debates in which supporters suggested he was insufficiently forceful against Obama...

The trooper in "troopergate" tasered his 10 year old stepson, was caught drinking on duty, threatened to kill his father-in-law and managed to earn the following quote from Col. Grimes, who was at the helm of the Police department:
"The record clearly indicates a serious and concentrated pattern of unacceptable and at times, illegal activity occurring over a lengthy period, which establishes a course of conduct totally at odds with the ethics of our profession” and "This discipline is meant to be a last chance to take corrective action. You are hereby given notice that any further occurrences of these types of behaviors or incidents will not be tolerated and will result in your termination".
My review board says any self respecting Public Safety Officer would have hauled this guy up, taken his badge, gun and uniform and sent him out the front gate so quickly it would have left tire marks.
If Monegram was unable to decipher that this trooper was a more than a few bricks short of a load and a danger to himself and others, he is clearly too stupid to be a Public Safety Officer.
A friend found some consolation in this finding and wrote: "So, this means more Dems will vote Palin now, right?"
Update - True to my very obsessive form, I read the report. This paragraph appears to be missing from all the news articles - wonder why? Its a great big mystery. So, without further ado - the final paragrah:
"I find that, although Walt Monegan's refusal to fire Trooper Michael Wooten was not the sole reason he was fired by Governor Sarah Palin, it was likely a contributing factor to his termination as Commissioner of Public Safety. In spite of that, Governor Palin's firing of Commissioner Monegan was a proper and lawful exercise of her constitutional and statutory authority to hire and fire executive branch department heads." - emphasis mine.

Obama - Good thing you asked that. So, I have a plan. Its big. Blah blah, big big plan full of hope. Not a bad plan like Bush and McCain, their plan is bad. My plan? numbers, figures, numbers, blah blah. Government will save you and do everything. Big, costly plan.
McCain - The government is stinkeroo at stuff, so why the heck should they have health care? I say take this tax credit and go forth and get yourself the plan you want, its a free country so long as Obama doesn't get elected! And forget these stupid don't get health care from that state because you don't live there laws! No! Free market = lower costs! Just say no to socialism!
Obama - Wait! You can't do that! If you do that they will go to lawless states like Delaware! Health Care is a right! Joe Biden Version Constitution says so! We replaced that stupid free speech clause with "Health care for all"! Health care for small business, too! Except the screw 'em sector, not them. Oh, and my mom died of cancer fighting for coverage because it was a pre-existing issue. She was on the phone! She had to call! I couldn't call for her because I was too busy shunning my white family! But I will call for you! By the way, what is a commodity?
Question 7 - How will you lead with peace?
McCain - PEACE THROUGH SUPERIOR FIRE POWER. Because we can kick ass, we keep peace here, there, everywhere. I know, I 've done it. Wait for the right moment, and then BLAMMO, kick some commie butt, result? Peace. Obama? Shoot, he said the surge wouldn't work. Still says that. Because he is dumber than Biden when it comes to such things.
Obama - McCain is right again. I don't understand. I don't like this war, and I want a do over so I can stop it by waving this white flag here. McCain is right that America is great. But we should not be braggarts. We should not point out we are great, we should let other countries have a chance to feel superior, even if that means they might try to shoot us or something. We deserve it. But we should stop genocide in Darfur, because that is just plain evil, killing people because of their race. But putting people in wood chippers is ok. And we shouldn't stop genocide if it will take longer than 10 minutes, or if someone gets hurt or its hard. But from the air - that is ok, because then no one gets dead or anything. Maybe if we stop being so pushy other countries will help and do this. If we give them a puppy and say pretty please they will.
McCain - Obama decoder ring needed again - this time it says you are a Lilly livered cowering coward that wants to surrender instead of fighting like a man. I know how to fight like a man, need experience, not rhetoric. Cool, even experience.
Question 8 - So, you say you want to invade Pakistan?
Obama - BUSH! ROVE! McCAIN! Bush sucks! We are in Iraq and need to get out!
McCain - I love me some Teddy Roosevelt. Speak softly, carry big stick. That guy? Speaks loud and long, little tiny stick if you know what I mean.
Obama - Ok, so we shouldn't invade Pakistan unless we do. McCain says I am inexperienced. Well so what, he sang "Bomb Iran!"
McCain - Its a vet thing, you wouldn't understand.
Obama - Should have killed Osama Bin Laden and there would be instant world wide peace. I will kill him. Just you wait. I am making a transmorgifier in my basement and then I will kill him without really killing him. But there will be peace.
McCain - yeah, you do that. Meanwhile, I am going to go ahead and listen to my friend here, Gen. Patraus.
Question 9 - Oh NOES! RUSSIA! COLD WAR!
McCain - Putin can KMA. I told him before, I'll tell him again.
Obama - ME TOO! He can...what McCain said! Only I said it more! And better! But I must add this - give money to the world - yes, lots of your money to foreigners. Its the only way! That and we must predict when other countries don't like us and situations that might happen - because we need to get the white flag factories all revved up so we can surrender before anything actually starts!
Brokaw - Russia = evil empire?
Obama - ummmm.....uh.....well....uh....do they get this channel in Russia? hmmmm....they sort of act kinda bad, sometimes.....
McCain - Once again, we need to drill here. Drill and drill some more. Energy needs to come from America brought to you by Americans. The Ruskies? They know I will send their fur hat wearin' fannies right back to the 18th century if they look at me funny.
Question 10 - Support Israel? Even if we have to take on Iran?
McCain - Let me shake your hand, you are a retired Navy Chief and a hero. I bow down to you, and your great service to this country. It is because of you that I am putting up with Pinocchio over there. You give me strength. Israel is the bomb, no pun intended, and messing with her is messing with me. The UN is craptastic. Need a new organization that has cojones. See above Russia comments - same goes for you Ahmadinejad!
Obama - Don't touch me, Navy Boy. Oh yes - those mullahs are not very nice. Nope, they aren't for hope and change. Won't ever take military option off the table, but we might be in another room discussing the weather and such. But it will be there. If I can find it under this pile of mail...
Question 11 - The Zen End. What the heck don't you know?
Obama - can I phone a friend? Michelle? I really know just about everything, so this is hard to answer. ummm...well....can I ask McCain because if he says something I like, I can just say "McCain is right, but I thought of it first so its really my idea"....ummm...I don't know what it means to be American, but that's pretty much ok because, you know, I am for hope and change, and I'll make sure that everyone knows that being an Obama American means the government, well specifically me, your dear leader, will show you the way.
McCain - Wowzers. Well, to start, I don't know what that yahoo is going to do the first time a crazazy Middle Eastern leader yells BOO! Or what he will do when Putin looks at him with his big hairy eyeballs. Some of the options he has suggested lead me to believe the outcome won't be good at all for us Americans. I know what I would do, and it would be steady as she goes...with a swift kick when necessary. I know what "when necessary" means because I have experience. And my friends aren't terrorists.
Wednesday, October 8, 2008
Question 1 - So, the economy is all screwed up and no one knows what to do. What do you do and what’s in it for me?
Obama - We shouldn’t be afraid, but LOOK OUT HERE COMES THE NEXT GREAT DEPRESSION!!! Bush, blah, blah, firing squad for CEOS, Bush, McCain, blah blah, and for you, the little people, more policies.
McCain – I have a plan that does not include anywhere the word “Bush”. Energy from here, money stays here and doesn’t buy Ahmadinejad’s wife new burkas, your money stays under your mattress, oh! And I almost forgot! Treasury Sec will buy up mortgages and renegotiate the terms to make them more favorable for you. Sound good?
Brokaw (who was an interesting shade of orange) – Who is the new SecTreas, pray tell?
McCain – anyone but you, because you are orange. Oh, I don’t know…lemme think. Warren Buffet? Nahhhh….Meg Whitman? Yeah, she would be pretty good, and since she isn’t working for ebay any longer, she probably has the time. You know about ebay, right? You have listed all your worldly belongings on there recently to pay your mortgage that the damn dems screwed up. (oh wait, that is what he was SUPPOSED to say, but didn’t).
Obama – Me? I have to pick someone? Hey! I know Warren, too! We had watercress sandwiches just the other day at the club. Oh, did you ask a question? Bush! I mean its his fault, ummmm…yeah.
Question 2 – Déjà vu, so this bailout, WTF?
McCain – Fannie and Freddie are all f’d up, thanks to Obama’s socialist demoncrat friends. Oh, and guess who is second place in receiving blood money from the idiots running Freddie and Fannie? Not me! Oh no, that would be BARACK OBAMA. What’d you do with the money, Barry? Enquiring minds want to know.
Obama – Wow. McCain is really, really dumb. I don’t know anyone named Fannie or Freddie. I wrote a letter, I tried to fix it, but it didn’t work! No one listened, I am not all that effective! Ummmm…but people staying in their houses, that is a great idea – but uhh..not how McCain said they should. Bloviate, blah blah…have to take care of really important financial stuff. REALLY important. And big. Big big financial doings. Yep.
McCain – letter? Obama, I wrote a letter saying do something dammit because the yahoos controlling this congress are running it right in the ground and your name so was not on that letter… sheesh. Americans are wonderful and really smart.
Question 3 – You guys both suck. Tell me, which one of you sucks less?
Obama – Did you just say I suck? Let me tell you who sucks around here. BUSH. Bush is the king of suck. You know why? Because he is BUSH. McCain sucks too. Why? Because he is Bush. And…um…Washington lobbyists suck too. We need more policies. I have decided that I like the Biden version of the Constitution, so I am going to spend your money on key issues, congress rules be damned! Did I mention Bush sucks? Ok.
McCain – That was interesting. You know what really sucks? Obama’s ability to spend money like we print it up down the street. Billions, he spends and when he finally gets a coherent sentence out, we learn he wants to spend billions more. On a damn projector, people, your messiah spent 3 million dollars! Do you not get that he is going to take all of your money and for what? A multimillion dollar projector that you, middle class American, could go to staples and buy for like $50? We need to focus on energy independence which will create lots and lots of jobs. And if I am President, you get to actually keep the paycheck that you earn! Now that is novel reform right there. Oh, and guess what kind of energy? We need to drill, baby, drill. We shouldn’t be giving hard earned American cash to those terrorists just so they can use it on more weapons to kill our Soldiers! That is damn crazy talk, sending our money there. You know what else? Nuclear. Yep. Nuclear. And guess what? We have the technology to do that and do it well. And there will be jobs. GO AMERICA!
Obama - grimace.
Brokaw – And how will you prioritize these issues? What first?
McCain – prioritize? This is America! We will do them all, and do them all well because we can! When you have a brain, you can use it! A foreign concept to some, I realize, but I am able to reach across the aisle and work some deals. Like McCain/Feingold, and when I worked with Kennedy. (and right at this moment, thousands of Republicans threw up – ed)
Obama – we must prioritize. Yes. We should. We can’t do things all at one time, oh no. We can’t do them all at once, either. We can go to the moon, Alice! And then get health care all shored up, and the bills won’t have tons of extras because I will just pick the parts I like!
McCain – Obama, you cannot be this stupid, can you? There is NO line item veto and you know why? YOUR PARTY WON’T LET IT HAPPEN, asshat. (Ok, McCain didn’t say this, but he really should have).
Question 4 - Brokaw – amazingly, an Internet question from someone who was alive in the REAL great depression. What or who will you sacrifice?
McCain – I’m down with sacrificing. Everything stops. Slash and burn, baby. Except the Military, because that’s down right un-American to not support them. Everything else? No mas.
Obama – Let me tell you about a little story I’ve dubbed 9-11. On that day, as you may remember, that idiot Bush, who is also John McCain in drag, said go shopping. But…umm…really we should have civilians acting like the military so that umm…peace corp radicals can give the homicidal maniacs in the Army a break, and…ummm….public service, and…energy savings, wow, that’s tough at home, and I’m going to cut spending too! Yessiree! So long as I don’t cut one of my very important hope and change initiatives.
McCain – Good lord, man, what the hell did you just say? In using my handy, dandy Obama decoder ring, I understand you to say you are going to tax those “rich” people who earn $250K and more? Don’t you get that would be lots of small business owners and if you do this, they won’t be able to employ people? I won’t do that because its just a dumb idea. I say keep your money! Employ those people! Why? Because it makes sense, such a simple concept, isn’t it? (the throwing up republicans from earlier feel better now)
Obama – Hey! He was mean so I get to break the rules!
Brokaw – shut up, barry.
Question 5 – tell the world about Social Security
Obama – obviously, McCain will screw it up. Medicare will be toast too. But let me talk about that tax thing, even though you told me to shut up. I am NOT going to tax many small business owners. The ones that will get taxed? Screw ‘em (from KOS!!).
McCain – Are you able to focus at all, Senator? Ever? Shheesh. Let me answer the question for reals. I will fix it – its not so hard. Can the ear marks, get to work like Reagan did. Since Obama brought it up, though, he is going to tax and spend like a drunken sailor!
Question 6 – How are YOU planning to save all the butterflies in this big polluted world?
McCain – See, I am not George Bush. You know why? Because he doesn’t believe in Green. He is just so not with it. I feel we must take all sorts of steps to be green. Yes, we should. And you know what is green? Nukes, and I support nukes. But I don’t like George Bush all that much, because he doesn’t care about the environment, and I am greener than any San Fran loony out there.. (Republicans throwing up again)
Obama – I like Nukes and drilling too! Maybe. Or maybe I don’t. I’m not really sure. But I agree with McCain! Or maybe I don’t, do I? Hey! Shiny thing! Oh, how about if we give some stuff to China? Would that be green? If they are dollars, its green.
Stay tuned for part 2 -

Obama employed the "if you can't dazzle them with brilliance, baffle them with bull" method. He did this quite well. He blathered on (and on and on) with out much in the way of the uh and ahs we normally see. But what exactly did he say? Got me, but it sounded smooth.
Obama said McCain was not telling the truth about his invasion of Pakistan. He corrected this statement by saying "I did not say I would invade Pakistan. I SAID if Pakistan will not go after Osama Bin Laden, we should invade Pakistan". Which is different. Somehow.
Obama on health care - its a right. Really? Under what article? We did learn that after parting the seas, Obama will rid the universe of pre-existing conditions and that he doesn't want children with curable illnesses to go to emergency rooms. Huh.
McCain did not slam O like he should have. When Obama whined about North Korea and Nukes? McCain should have responded "yep, that is an issue and I am glad you brought it up. Now just how did they get nuclear technology....why, it was in 1984 and the Dems delivered it complete with personal training. Then there was this little agreement between Bill Clinton, who was - oh my! - a member of your party!
When O brought up his 95% tax decrease John should have responded "how do you cut taxes for people who don't pay them?" Furthermore, why didn't McCain jump all over Obama for specifics on spending cuts? How? How will you do this?
When O said I don't know much about history, McCain should have siad "you are right, and you don't know much about economics or domestic security either. But carry on. " That would have been GREAT.
Why didn't McCain point out how O's stance on Darfur matches why we went to Iraq? Oh so many missed opportunities.
McCain should win on points, nonetheless. He had real answers though some were just pure crapola like the green jobs and climate change shiz along with the bailout fiasco.
Without reading the transcripts, the Obama Scary Statement Du jour is the government should create and maintain the economy. This reminds me of a type of government...hang tight...it will come to me.... (sheesh, why can't McCain just say Barry! you are a damn socialist, what the hell is wrong with you?)
More tomorrow. I will, of course, read and dissect the transcripts. Why? So you don't have too!

My husband is so smitten with this woman and I think this one will send him right over the edge to all out crush!
“Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”–George Santayana
What would Santayana (1863-1952) say were he with us today? Although born in Madrid, Santayana lived and taught in the United States for decades, an amused, slightly detached observer of the human panoply and its addiction to folly. Recalling the disater of the Carter years–the economic dégringolade (remember the “misery index“?), the foreign policy disasters (remember the Iran hostage crisis?), recalling above all the hang-dog, defeatist attitude of the Carter years (remember the “malaise” speech?)–Santayana would doubtless have shaken his head as so many Americans (and even more, so many Europeans) are loosing their heads over Barack Obama.
Here, after all, is a man who is a distillation of Jimmy Carter, George McGovern, and Bill “the bomber” Ayres. On taxes. On foreign policy. On free speech. On government entitlements. On all this and more Obama is the most left-wing candidate in the history of the Republic. And yet he is greeted with open arms not only by self-confessed revolutionaries like Bill Ayres but by Mom and Pop Democrat in a taxing district near you.
How do you explain it? Bush Derangement Syndrome (exacerbated by Palin Hysteria Syndrome)? In part. There is also a large quantum of liberal guilt operating, an emotion that Team Obama has been quick to capitalize on.
Ask yourself this: What is the thing a good liberals feel most guilty about? Racism. Yes, they feel guilty being American, especially if they are well to do; the men among them feel guilty about being men, just as the heterosexuals feel guilty about their sexual orientation. But in the great sweepstakes of guilt, race trumps everything. Obama comes wielding all the usual left-wing nostrums about “fairness” (i.e., what’s yours is his, or at least the government’s) and “sharing” and getting along with and talking to our enemies. But what he offers above all is expiation for the imagined taint of racism.
The liberal says: “We have sinned. We are guilty. Please absolve us of our wrong.”
Team Obama says, “Sure, but it’s going to cost you.”
Part of the cost seems to be a simple recognition of historical truth. Thomas Sowell touched on this yesterday when he wondered, not without exasperation, whether facts still mattered in our political life. The current economic crisis seems to have benefitted Obama in the polls. But how could that be? Sowell reminds us of some forgotten facts:
Fact Number One: It was liberal Democrats, led by Senator Christopher Dodd and Congressman Barney Frank, who for years– including the present year– denied that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were taking big risks that could lead to a financial crisis. It was Senator Dodd, Congressman Frank and other liberal Democrats who for years refused requests from the Bush administration to set up an agency to regulate Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. It was liberal Democrats, again led by Dodd and Frank, who for years pushed for Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to go even further in promoting subprime mortgage loans, which are at the heart of today’s financial crisis. Alan Greenspan warned them four years ago. So did the Chairman of the Council of Economic Advisers to the President. So did Bush’s Secretary of the Treasury, five years ago.
Yet, today, what are we hearing? That it was the Bush administration “right-wing ideology” of “de-regulation” that set the stage for the financial crisis. Do facts matter?
Read the whole thing.

The media's willful disregard for this information is by far the most egregious act of journalistic malpractice yet.
The RNC is alleging that the Obama campaign was so hungry for donations it "looked the other way" as contributions piled up from suspicious, and possibly even illegal foreign donors.
"We believe that the American people should know first and foremost if foreign money is pouring into a presidential election," said RNC Chief Counsel Sean Cairncross.Cairncross alleged there was mounting evidence of this, and cited a report in the current issue of Newsweek magazine that documents a handful of instances where donors made repeated small donations using fake names, such as "Good Will" and "Doodad Pro."
What the heck is wrong with you, RNC?!? Are you a bunch of racists?
UPDATE: Powerline has a great rundown on this.
In re Acorn - on Fight The Smears, Camp Obama says he never worked for the thugish and voter fraud laden group.
Except, he did.
and there is this: Obama Ran ACORN Power Training Classes.
Both just a bit different than the "facts" as laid out by Camp Obama.
Then there is the Bill Ayers connection:
Oh wait, you say! Barry was only 8 when Ayers was in full blown terrorist mode! Seeing how I wasn't even born when Charlie Manson was murdering people, it would be no big thing to have him over to dinner now, right?
Despite the MSM's attempt to whitewash this relationship, the truth (the real truth, not Barry's truth) is Barry served on The Woods Foundation board WITH Ayers when he said:
“I don’t regret setting bombs. I feel we didn’t do enough.” (published Sept. 11, 2001 in this article). Please take note of the lovely picture of Professor Ayers standing on the American Flag.
Further more, in the Chicago Annenburg Challenge, Ayers and Obama worked closely on pushing radicalism in public schools.
One unsettled question is how Mr. Obama, a former community organizer fresh out of law school, could vault to the top of a new foundation? In response to my questions, the Obama campaign issued a statement saying that Mr. Ayers had nothing to do with Obama's "recruitment" to the board. The statement says Deborah Leff and Patricia Albjerg Graham (presidents of other foundations) recruited him. Yet the archives show that, along with Ms. Leff and Ms. Graham, Mr. Ayers was one of a working group of five who assembled the initial board in 1994. Mr. Ayers founded CAC and was its guiding spirit. No one would have been appointed the CAC chairman without his approval.
Stanley Kurtz further investigates this relationship here and Obama's other choice of friends here.
SarahCuda has begun to point out these unsavory relationships in her stump speeches. The jaw dropping response from the MSM? Criticizing Obama's relationship with white radical terrorists is racist.
WASHINGTON (AP) - By claiming that Democrat Barack Obama is "palling around with terrorists" and doesn't see the U.S. like other Americans, vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin targeted key goals for a faltering campaign.
And though she may have scored a political hit each time, her attack was unsubstantiated and carried a racially tinged subtext that John McCain himself may come to regret.
UPDATE - The AP has changed the title of the above story from “Analysis: Palin’s words carry racial tinge” to: Analysis: Palin’s words may backfire on McCain.
UPDATE Again - it seems Team McCain has put the kibosh on pointing out the failed Frannie and Freddie belongs to the Dems for fear of being labeled racist. Too late, John! They are already doing so and will continue no matter what you say and despite the fact there is absolutely no merit to it whatsoever. As Patterico points out, simply questioning The One is racist by definition, so throw caution to the wind and start hammering Camp Obama on this! Do you want win or what? If so, nothing and I mean nothing is off limits - all his unsavory aquaintences to include Reverend Right!

Speaking of Biden, those on gaffe watch must have been stunned. Senator Biden made a grand leap from gaffe to outright lie. Repeatedly.
Biden said "We", along with France, got Hezbollah out of Lebanon after Bush let them in. Really? Hezbollah has been there steadily since the 1980s, so when did this happen? Who is "we" that sent them packing? What universe did this take place? There isn't even a "sort of" story to attach to this bizarre claim.
Mr. Foreign policy went on to exclaim Hamas is in control of the West Bank. That may come as a surprise to many in Israel as well as Hamas itself. It was pretty surprising to me! Speaking of those rascally Hamas types, Biden said Obama did not support the elections that put Hamas in control of Gaza (It's Gaza,Joe. Home of the Gazniaks). Except Obama DID at the time.
Biden's theme of "BS or BS" rolled along with his adamant statement Barry O never said he would meet with Ahmadinejad without preconditions. Someone should email this to him:
While we are watching video, here is Biden v. Biden on his "always supporting clean coal" statement
"Always" must be relative in Biden's world.
Biden also felt it necessary to give a constitutional lecture on the role of VP - but quoted the wrong article to bolster his point. This is something we would hope a person who has been a Senator longer than I have been alive would know.
More lies? Go here. Or you could tune in to CNN and watch them play these lies on continual loop along with journalists disgustedly pointing out how incredibly dumb Biden is, and if you vote for Obama/Biden you must be eqally dumb. No? That isn't happening? Shocking.

So - the house votes no and the dow drops a ton. The senate votes yes and the dow drops a ton. Congresscritters -please do NOT be strong armed into voting for this pork laden pile. President Bush stated the American's are worried the government won't do anything. No, no, no. We are worried the government WILL do something - there is a reason President Reagan said the most terrifying statement is "I am with the government and I am here to help."
Tonight is the night for Sarah Palin. Let's hope the duct tape has been removed by Team McCain, we really need her to be Sarah. As I will be on LGF for the debate itself, I will do a round up here.
