Look closely. I damn near clicked this thinking it was FOR Obama. Until I saw “Paid for by McCain-Palin 2008”:

I figured what the hell and clicked it to see what they wanted people to speak out on. The link goes to a page that begs you not to connect McCain with Bush. LOL. That narrative ship has sailed, clearly. 12 days out it’s a little late to try to convince the electorate of something that has been pretty well established over 2 years now.

Here’s the page you’re taken to

I figured I’d let them know […]

A quick update on the “Fox Alert” text message I received yesterday.

It turns out a lot of people have gotten the same message. Sarah over at Wired’s blog has picked up on the story and has a few more insights into it. Specifically that “the phone number belongs to a voicemail company called SimpleVoiceBox that provides voicemail boxes to anyone who wants one.” Also, the McCain camp and the RNC have denied paying for the messages.

I’m a big believer in redemption. I never expected the numbers of GOP defections this cycle though. Seems like everybody and their brother is jumping ship and seeking to get on the O-train.

My personal, far-from-scientific take on the Kilroy v. Stivers TV ad battle is that Mary Jo Kilroy is totally kicking Steve Stivers’ ass.

I have been seeing Kilroy ads for months pretty much non-stop. And they are running at least 2-1 against Stivers’ ads.

I challenge you to find anyone in Ohio’s 15th district who doesn’t know that Steve Stivers is a former banking lobbyist.

And it looks like that isn’t going to change in the days leading up to the election. According to

The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has purchased an additional $100,000 of advertising time in […]

Listen to Tim at BI: DO NOT accept a provisional ballot on election day – DEMAND a real ballot.

If you live in a district that leans Democratic, then the GOP will have people at your polling place trying to challenge your voting status.

You defeat this by not leaving the sign-in table without voting a regular ballot. PERIOD. And you TELL EVERY VOTER around you on election day at the polling place to do the same.

I’d suggest you take this a step it a step further. Put these numbers on your cell phone and don’t hesitate […]
