So let me get this straight. Iraq is sitting on nearly $80 billion in surplus while we spend $48 billion rebuilding their country.

Get a load of that middle America! Your tax dollars at work by the Bush administration. Wave your Americun flags high and proud while your government and President bend you over like a Buffalo Chip dancer!

Un. fucking. real.

In one comparison, the United States has spent $23.2 billion in the critical areas of security, oil, electricity and water since the 2003 invasion, the report said. But from 2005 through April 2008, Iraq has spent […]

So I’m sure you’ve seen the great video Tim (Blogger Interrupted) captured of John Gerard Quinn – the heckler at today’s Obama rally. If not, then go watch it.

Then, check out this segment from the CBS Evening News showing ‘the making of’ Tim’s video. You’ll need to jump ahead to about 1:35. (sorry about the ad in the embed- I’m working on fixing that)

Sure, it’s only the back of his head. But hey- it’s national news. AND it’s crap compared to Tim’s video.

Hilarity. McCain goes to Sturgis and goes on about rather having 50,000 inebriated bikers than 200,000 Germans cheer for him. Fair enough. Decent political shot. I’m still waiting for the wingnuts to jump up and down and whine about how he wouldn’t even have HAD that many if there wasn’t already a BIKE RALLY THERE! But I digress.

The real shocker of the event is when John McCain offered his wife up to the “Buffalo Chip Beauty Contest”. Now, I don’t think Mr. OR Mrs. McCain knew precisely of what John spoke. Check that. I KNOW they didn’t. Here’s […]

Update 2: Shock of all shocks he’s a registered Republican! Hi John Quinn of Parma, jquinn@sunartist.com. You’re famous!

Update: Openers has first mention of the guy’s name I’ve seen. John Quinn of Parma. LOL. He called himself John Q. Public and he was damned near right!

How Obama handled it (brilliantly):

Sure sounds like it:

As Barack Obama was about to begin his remarks, mentioning that the event is meant to be a “town hall,” a guy on the photography riser (with a camera and a press credential) shouted out that Obama should take questions from the floor … and then demanded that Obama recite the pledge of allegiance. Obama asked him if he is a member of the press, but then complied and invited the heckler to join him in leading the crowd in the pledge, which he did. And then Obama thanked him.

Bizarre.

I asked him to […]

Obama Ad: Pocket

On August 5, 2008 By

“Pocket” illustrates the clear choice in this election between an approach that keeps us sending billions to oil companies and foreign governments and one that gives middle class families a $1,000 rebate funded by a windfall profits tax on the oil companies.
