Don’t believe the ads. You can calculate your election year tax implications by going to a site that has take both tax plans and put them into a cool interactive tool that will tell you how it will affect you. I did mine and Obama will give me quite a big tax CUT! I plugged in some different numbers and there are scenarios in which you’d get a cut under Obama, but a tax INCREASE under McCain.

Republicans will raise your taxes. Obama will cut them. He’s lying to you if you believe Obama will raise taxes. Flat […]

Hey Focus Action and Stuart Shephard, Fuck off!

Rich Cordray – currently running for Ohio AG – is out in Denver at the convention this week, and Eric asked him a question about the significance of the Clintons participation in the convention. Hear Rich’s response right here on Plunderbund:


Got your own question for Rich? Ask it here!

The McCain campaign just released this ridiculous video…

“Congratulations,” says Mr. McCain. “How perfect that your nomination would come on this historic day.”

By “historic day” we assume McCain is talking about the 45th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech.

The whole thing seems forced, contrived and insincere – especially knowing that John McCain voted against MLK day.

More than anything else, this ad just seems like another attempt by McCain to remind voters that Obama is – gasp! – black.

McCain’s Largest Crowd 3,000?

On August 28, 2008 By

Um, wow:

The McCain campaign is hoping to have 15,000 people at the Ohio event, roughly five times the size of his largest crowd to date.

Shit. We might have that many at the speech after party tonight. 😉

Headed there now. Drop by later.

So the WSJ is pointing out that not only did McCain figure out how to get on the Interweb, but he figured out how to use Google AdSense to buy up keyword searches. He has “Biden“:

and “Joe Biden“:

We on the left know a little about AdSense too. Psst: It’s pay-per-click! So I say to us all who want to donate money to Barack Obama, click the ads! Every time you do it’s like donating $5 to the Obama campaign. Technically you are taking away $5 from John McCain, but you know. […]

THIS is what really worries me about November 4th. More than anything else, including voter fraud and electronic voting machines:

Nearly 2 million employees, remember. You’d think this would merit a front page story or maybe even a blog post:

According to a digital recording of a Wal-Mart meeting made by a Wal-Mart employee and reviewed by the WSJ, the meeting leader told employees that their wages may be reduced to minimum wage for up to three months before a contract is negotiated, that union authorization cards violate workers’ right to privacy by including their Social Security numbers on them and that if a small unit within a store votes to unionize, the entire store will be unionized.

Tim is all over The PeeDee and Bizzy Boy Blogger Tom Blumer this morning. It seems the two are up in arms over ACORN. The problem? 5 fraudulent voter registrations. Out of 75,000 submitted.


Of 75,000 submitted.

They find 5.

What’s that? Like .006%? Bizzy himself ought to know that this is a pretty damn good error rate. You might even describe this as “near zero”. General Motors would. Hell, even Honda would.

Yet the cries are loud from Wingnuttia today. You’d think the Plain Dealer would be objective, but apparently they’ve been […]

Good get in Denver, Rich!

??(Denver)–While Ohio’s delegates to the Democratic National Convention will return home with campaign buttons, tee-shirts, and lots of energy, their party’s nominee for Attorney General is bringing with him a real prize: a personal endorsement of his candidacy by Barack Obama.
