Mostly about my amusement

Oh, come on, what next?

When Senator McCain was running in the primary against George W., Karl Rove ran a dirty whisper campaign and W. won the primary. It was your typical get elected at all cost move and sadly it worked.

Now this?

“Our opponent though, is someone who sees America, it seems, as being so imperfect that he’s palling around with terrorists who would target their own country.”

Governor Palin – ENGLEWOOD, Colorado

That’s some Maverick behavior alright.  The statement is nonsense and the McCain campaign knows it.

Next up Palin will be saying things about his religion (he’s Christian), and his upbringing (he did not attend a madrasah), and his patriotism (his wife does not hate America).

I like how this is orchestrated to have Governor Palin spout this nonsense.  You don’t want to have McCain dirty his dress whites after all.

Senator McCain knows this is his last shot for the brass ring. So scruples be damned, his campaign will do and say whatever it takes to get anyone to vote for him.

McCain really needs to fire his ad guys

First they released a “McCain Wins Debate” ad a day early and now this.

1. unduly or unrealistically magnified: to have an exaggerated opinion of oneself.
2. abnormally increased or enlarged.

I did not watch the debates but, you betcha, I’m dog gonnit, gonna read up on it.

The success criteria for each VP candidate was pretty low.  I mean, all Governor Palin had to do was form complete sentences and she exceeds expectations.  All Senator Biden had to do was not look across the room and shout “Are you kidding me?”

This is why I can’t really get into the debates.  It’s just an extended ad.
