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.
I figured I’d let them know […]Full Story... →
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.Full Story... →
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. You know what? I welcome them all. It will take coalition of the willing to fix this nasty Bush mess. Scott McClellan, Welcome aboard:
Scott McClellan, the former White House press secretary who sharply criticized President Bush in his memoir last spring, told CNN Thursday he’s voting for Barack Obama.
“From the very beginning I have said I am going to support the candidate that has […]Full Story... →
Maybe it’s wrong to say conservatism is dead, but what we knew conservatism to be – this neo-conservative trainwreck – is most certainly dead. It never was all that conservative to begin with. The Republican Party is going to have some soul searching to do in the coming months and years.

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 politickeroh.com:
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has purchased an additional $100,000 of advertising time in […]Full Story... →
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 […]Full Story... →
