In the VP debate last night I looked at my wife after Palin said nuclear and said, “Oh shit. Not another one!”. She, of course, said nookular! Apparently this is a recurring problem that the campaign has been dealing with:
I would think they’d want to prevent her from saying this given it is a direct link to Bush. I’m just disappointed she didn’t say new-clear! That’d would have been sweet.Full Story... →

It looks like the trendlines are about the same. If McCain doesn’t narrow the gap soon in PA he may have to shut it down as well. North Carolina might need the resources. Florida for sure does! Together they represent a pickup of 32 EVs over Kerry’s 2004 performance. Both have recently broken hard for Obama.Full Story... →

Those 17 EVs lost is going to tighten up their math quite a bit. Especially given the dynamics of the electoral race. Their campaign has even so much as admitted the only way they win is by the slimmest of margins.Full Story... →
So, don’t you love it when wingnuts make absolute asses out of themselves by overhyping something? Usually it is the terrsts, or wmd, or yellowcake, or other such nonsense.
In the hours and days leading up to the VP debate the entire right were breathing into paper bags over Gwen Ifill. She wrote some book. She can’t possibly be unbiased. More gotcha journalism coming.
How stupid do these people look this morning?Full Story... →
