McCain Defeats Obama!

On September 26, 2008 By

In true “Dewey Defeats Truman” fashion, the McCain campaign ran an ad touting John McCain’s defeat of Barack Obama in a debate he wanted to postpone. A debate that doesn’t happen until 9pm TONIGHT. A debate McCain’s campaign hadn’t even committed to attending until after this ad appeared. If that doesn’t tell you something about the games they are playing, nothing will.

ROFL. I’m telling you. These guys are looking more and more Blackwellian every day!

In short, they said: Suck It, America! i.e. We’d rather win a campaign than see Americans not lose their life savings.

Barney Frank sums it up nicely: “John McCain said he had to interrupt his campaign and couldn’t do a debate because he had to come here and help us. God save us from such help!”

So I’m sitting here watching CNN talk about the economy going to shit and the Republicans refusing to show up to help solve the problem. Depressing as all hell.

Then I glance up and see the words “RAY DAVIES” rolling by on the crawl.

If you don’t know Ray Davies, look him up. He’s the musical genius who brought the world The Kinks- and a whole lot more. You know his songs, even if you only know the covers by Van Halen, the Pretenders, etc.

Anyway- I grab the Tivo remote and rewind and discover that Davies is planning […]
