So much is great about this:

“Washington is broken. No kidding! It’s taken him 26 years to figure it out.”

“That’s why Washington is broken. Because we offer gimmicks instead of solutions.”

“You can’t be a maverick when it’s politically working for you, and then not a maverick when it doesn’t work for you and you’re seeking your party’s nomination”

“In the coming days it’s gonna be interesting to watch this debate between John McCain…and John McCain”

McCain: Dazed and Confused

On August 7, 2008 By

Full Story...

As you’ve probably noticed, John McCain reads most of his speeches directly from a printed page or some kind of hand-written cards. Not sure which- but I am pretty sure the words are in REALLY BIG LETTERS because he never wears glasses.

You can tell he’s reading because he pauses every few words and looks down at the podium or, in the case of the recent biker rally speech, the music stand, so he can remember the 8 or 9 words that make up the cute little Obama-attacking one-liner that his handlers are making him say.

He seems to reference […]

ModernEsquire (my good friend and fellow Obama supporter) does the heavy lifting on this story and has it all covered at BSB. You should read it.

Either Kurt Schuring has bad sources or he, his campaign, and his surrogates are just pathological liars.

Either way, I’m convinced that Schuring isn’t fit to serve if this is how he runs his campaign. For the second day in the row, the Schuring campaign and its surrogates have attacked John Boccieri for doing something he didn’t do.

While you’re at it, give Boccieri some money.

Tim is looking more and more right as this thing goes on. Somebody is going to get hurt.

MIAMI (AP) — A man who authorities said was keeping weapons and military-style gear in his hotel room and car appeared in court Thursday on charges he threatened to assassinate Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.

Raymond Hunter Geisel, 22, was arrested by the Secret Service on Saturday in Miami and was ordered held at Miami’s downtown detention center without bail Thursday by a federal magistrate.

While the wingnut blogosphere is abuzz with the House Republicans staging an energy revolt and John McCain’s cries of “tell Congress to get back to work!”, house minority leader and GOPer hypocrite extroardinaire is…

wait for it….

wait for it……..


Yes. Golfing.

So to all wingnut bloggers: Tell John McCain to tell John Boehner to GET BACK TO WORK!

ROFL. This is too easy. Please don’t talk to me anymore about offshore drilling and the Democrats being on vacation. It’s obviously not a serious argument and like many suspected just a political game.

John McCain on the DHL Express

Good one from ODP:

You want straight talk? I’ll give you straight talk. We fucked you. My campaign manager Rick Davis and I fucked you lady. And we’ll fuck you again if we get the chance. There’s some goddamned straight talk!

You know what? Earlier in the week it did strike me awful funny that John McCain was berating Congress for taking vacation while there was important work on energy to be done. He kept ranting “tell Congress to come back and get to work”. He was saying this to a group of inebriated bikers who most likely drove cross country to watch half naked ladies simulate sex acts with bananas. You know. WORK!

Something about that made me smile. Looks like MoveOn noticed too:
