The Guv’nor by John McCain

On the convention eve on a bridge bound for nowhere
I met up with the Guvnor, we were both too wired to speak
So we took turns a starin out her window at the Russkies,
Ambition overtook her and she began to reek.

She said, John, I’ve made a life out of screwin people over,
And knowin all their weakness by the way they held their views,
So if you don’t mind my sayin, I can see you’re just a two-face.
For a taste of your power I’ll get you headlines in the news.

So I handed her some power and she became my veep,
Then she crushed out my opponents and moved me to the right.

Why I’m Voting for Barack Obama

by Maggie Van Ostrand

Asked by someone I used to be like (a Republican) why I’m voting for Barack Obama, my instinct was to shoot back, “I recommend researching both presidential candidates as thoroughly as I did.” But how would that come across? What if he really wants to know and isn’t baiting me into an unwinnable argument? What if I could actually change his mind? I answered him with my personal bottom line at the top.

If this were not serious

you would almost have to chuckle at the chuckleheads who sent out absentee ballots to over 300 voters in Rensselaer County, NY, each of which had a block to mark if you wanted to vote for Barack Osama (sic).

And you might want to chuckle some more because the two commissioners of elections said it was just a typographical error. “It’s human error, it’s very unfortunate, it’s an embarrassment to our office. We wish we could turn back the clock but we can’t.”

And I will believe it was not malicious when I am approached by Old Scratch himself offering a good deal on igloos.

What Is The Matter With You People?

Or what is the matter with me?

A few days ago, I was having a brainstorming session with a young neighbor of mine (from my perspective, 40s is young) about how to survive this coming economic depression and exit better off than we are as we enter it. He asked me if there was something terribly wrong with him, because despite the fact that he genuinely felt terrible for those people who were losing everything, he was actually enjoying himself.

Bush & the Economic Crisis

To all of us conspiracy advocates who believe that “Loose Change” was a documentary and not a work of supposition, I offer the following:

This emergency economic aid package is merely a smoke screen to accomplish another Bush objective.

As the fake war in Iraq was a method for Bush and Cheney to steal Billions and Billions of Dollars, so this new scheme involves nationalization of our banks, and some vague government oversight that is yet to be defined and explained.

October Surprise UPDATE: Confirmed, McCain pilots, Palin kills Osama bin Laden, Obama polls plummet

October 28, 2008 — BAGHRAM AIR BASE, AFGHANISTAN: A man closely fitting the description of Osama bin Laden has been shot and killed by Governor Sarah Palin from a light plane flown by Senator John McCain. A statement issued by US officials said that McCain and Palin acted without official sanction but had access to military intelligence from ground and satellite sources that bin Laden and a small group were thought to be traveling along a mountain trail in the rugged mountain region just across the Afghan border in Pakistan.

McCain tries one more comeback

Republican presidential nominee John McCain on Monday sought to assure supporters he can come from behind to defeat Democrat Barack Obama, who proposed new ways to address the economic turmoil.

"My friends, we’ve got them just where we want them," McCain told rallies in Virginia and North Carolina as he tried to breathe new life into his campaign after a two-week tailspin due largely to his reaction to the U.S. financial crisis.

Another Sarah Palin screwup

Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin mistook some of her own fans for hecklers Monday at a rally that drew thousands.

A massive crowd of at least 20,000 spread across the parking lot of Richmond International Raceway, and scores of people on the outer periphery more than 100 yards from the stage could not hear.

Can Obama win Indiana?

They don’t vote for Democratic presidential candidates very often in this state. The last time was 1964 and Lyndon Johnson had managed to scare the stuffing out of the electorate with allegations that if they voted for Republican Barry Goldwater the result would be an extended war in Southeast Asia, and rioting in the streets at home.

No more boomer Presidents

Whatever this national election’s outcome, one thing seems clear: it marks the end of the boomers’ presidential reign. As if applying a devastating coda to this era’s highly leveraged lifestyle, our current financial crisis indicates that we have reached the end of that political generation’s dysfunctional hyper-partisanship and lack of fiscal discipline.
