Here we go again with GOP tricks

Here we go again.

According to the Lundberg Survey of 5,000 gas stations, prices have fallen nearly 53 cents a gallon over the last two weeks.

The average price of a gallon of regular gasoline at self-serve stations was $2.78 Friday. Mid-grade was at $2.93 and premium was at $3.05.

Isn’t it fascinating that gas is becoming more affordable just as Republicans are trying to avoid massive losses in next week’s election?

Isn’t it fascinating that this seems to happen again and again and again, as long as there are seats in Congress and the presidency at risk?

Diva whack job Palin, McCain’s pig in a poke and his buyer’s remorse

Chris Mathews on the Palin is a “whack job” comment: He said that “a McCain senior top adviser” narrows it down to two or three people in the campaign. He said the person who reported this, Mike Allen, “is a serious reporter, Mike Allen is serious business”.

Palin was called a diva by people in the McCain campaign, advisers that the American Spectator reports are former Romney aides. It appears that John McCain is regretting selecting Sarah Palin as his running mate because she turned out to be a liability who thinks she’s the biggest baddest barracuda in the ocean and because intellectually while he’s listening to Wagner’s ‘Ride of the Valkyries’ on the “Apocalypse Now” soundtrack she’s humming the Miss America theme song.
