So… the McCain campaign prints a bunch of invalid absentee ballot forms for Ohio and the Secretary of State rejects the forms because, well, they are invalid.

The GOP gets pissed and wants to sue the Secretary of State for something that is their own damn fault. But where could they possibly find a lawyer who woul- oh, wait.

I forgot about Bill Todd.

Bill Todd is like the Johnny Knoxville of Ohio Politics.

You want someone to do the political equivalent of hammering a nail through their nutsack? Just call Bill Todd.

John Boccieri and Mary Jo Kilroy, Dems in Ohio’s 16th and 15th, need your help. You don’t have to phone bank or canvas. Hell, you don’t even have to put up a yard sign.

All you need to do is click here and vote for one of them in round two of the 21st Century Democrats’ Vote08 Contest.

Yard Signs are for Losers

On September 22, 2008 By

A great deal of commenting has been going on since this post was emailed around to a bunch of us. I agree completely with the take in the post.

Here’s my experience in this election. I go sit in the Delaware Obama office quite a bit. Most times just to get out of the house for a bit while working. The undisputed leader in requests coming through the front door is for yards signs. Almost always they are told there are none, but there are volunteer opportunities. They almost never sign up. They wouldn’t even if they scored […]

John McCain’s First Choice for VP

On September 22, 2008 By

Just watched John McCain speak in Scranton, PA – home of the fictional company Dunder Mifflin from the Office.

During his speech John McCain announced that he had originally wanted Dwight Schrute as his VP- not Sarah Palin. This makes a lot of sense, actually. Dwight and John see the world in very similiar ways, as evidenced by some of these classic Dwight Schrute quotes

Health Care

Dwight Schrute: In the wild, there is no health care. In the wild, health care is, ‘Ow, I hurt my leg. I can’t run. A lion eats me. I’m dead.’ Well, I’m […]

GYWO: Palin and Rape Kits

This is so painfully obvious, it’s astonishing to me that so many people who agitate for “smaller government” and “fiscal responsibility” continue to vote GOP. The Republican brand is dead.

Each day?s newspaper seems to bring word of a new Wall Street bailout more colossal than the last. Looking beyond the headlines, one question insistently presents itself: Why does the economy perform so badly under Republican Presidents?

The facts are hard to dispute; indeed, the historical record is now so stark that diehard Republicans are probably starting to wonder if there is a curse. As Slate?s Michael Kinsley has […]

You Want Details? We Got Details

The Obama plan (at a glance) on the Economy:

“I’m happy to have a debate about taxes with John McCain…”

Very glad to hear this, given most will not even realize McCain would raise their taxes or reduce less than Obama because the McCain campaign has been pushing the “evil librul will raise your taxes” talking point. Doesn’t sound like team Obama is gonna let this work this time around. The simple truth is if you make less than $250,000 annually you’ll get more tax cuts under Obama than under McCain (IF you even get one under McCain). I […]

John McCain Has 13 Cars

On September 22, 2008 By


Newsweek did the research and discovered that the McCain family owns 13 cars (in addition to 7 houses) including “three 2000 NEV Gem electric vehicles, which are bubble-shaped cars popular in retirement communities.”

The elitist Obama family has only one car.
