Obama Confirms Debate in Ohio

On February 7, 2008 By

Heh. Take a quick trip to the hardware store and it all gets sorted out. As I predicted and despite ModernEsquire’s protestations, Obama himself confirms that he’ll debate Clinton at least two more times and one will be in Ohio. Get ready Columbus. You got a cowtown duel headed your way!

Naymik has the story:

It’s on!

Barack Obama said he will debate Hillary Clinton in Ohio before the March 4 primary.

“I think we said we will do two more debates, and at least one of them will be in Ohio,” he told Plain Dealer editors […]

This is a Plunderbund exclusive. A reader sent us the transcript of a short conference call with John McCain and top wingnut radio personalities ahead of his appearance at a Conservative Political Action Committee meeting:

McCain: Don’t hit me anymore…Oh God, I pray to God you don’t hit me anymore. I’ll do anything you say, but I can’t take anymore.
Limbaugh: You got your mind right, John?
McCain: Yeah. I got it right. I got it right, boss.
Hannity: Suppose you’s back-slide on us?
McCain: Oh no I won’t. I won’t, boss.
Limbaugh: Suppose […]

BOSTON – A 30-year-old man who worked as a press spokesman for John McCain has been arrested for allegedly punching his girlfriend, breaking one of her ribs.

The worst part about it was that Romney fired the same dude for beating on the same girl back in 2003:

According to court records, Flynn also was arrested in 2003 on charges of domestic violence against the same woman.

After that incident, Flynn was fired from his job working for Mitt Romney, who was then governor of Massachusetts and is now McCain’s rival for the Republican presidential nomination.

There’s some good […]

CNN is reporting and I’m watching him live now giving a speech. Banging on Islam and “jihadists” – apparently McCain folks talked to him and asked for some paving of the way.

Tim has a revealing post over at BSB: Obama raising $54 per second

He’s amazed. As am I and others. It’s just unprecedented. The crazy thing is that the money is coming from people like you and me. I’m not able to max out on anyone at $2,300 a pop. I was one of the ones to toss a Benjamin Barack’s way though. I’ll probably do so again.

I made this point just after Super Tuesday and it bears repeating now. Given that half of what Obama is taking in is in online donations of $200 or less, […]

Obama/Clinton to Debate in Columbus

On February 7, 2008 By

I figured this all along really despite the other insider info that was coming out. The Dems will debate in Columbus to battle over the Buckeye State. Today I got two good sources telling me the same thing: Expect an Obama/Clinton debate in Columbus. No other details. There have been others with sources close to CNN saying the same thing. My bet would be if you are in Cleveland, come on down! We’ll have a beer after. 😉

So I guess ME can be the one to “suck it“. LOL
