Here’s an open question to anyone on the right who cares to answer it. Will the same WorldNet Wingnuts who demanded John Kerry open up his records also demand that John McCain sign Standard Form-180 and open up his military records as well? Full scrutiny is, aftterall, very important for the public to get a true sense for the man they may elect President in November. Right?

There are indeed very many questions to be answered. What does John “The Maverick War Hero” McCain have to hide???

…and where are the other 617 pages Senator?

The faux outrage over public financing is laughable when you remember the deal John McCain too with the devil back when he was an also-ran. Finally the Obama camp (normally timely with this type of thing), thumps Senator McCain over the head with it:

David Plouffe brought a prop to his briefing with reporter: a copy of John McCain’s signature on a state election document in which he attested that he’d be taking public financing.

“John McCain is spending tens of millions of dollars, we believe, unlawfully,’ he said, waving the document.

This from a guy who considers himself a McCain fan:

“But I can confirm to you that we never tortured him. We never tortured any prisoners.”

Mr Duyet reminisces instead about how he often summoned the future US presidential candidate to his private office for informal chats.

“We used to argue about the war – about whether it was right or wrong,” he says.

“He is a very frank man – very conservative, and very loyal to his country and the American ideal.

“He had a very interesting accent and sometimes he taught me words in English and corrected […]

Very good decision. Why would you limit yourself to less than 100 million when you’ve already taken 250? In a primary? You don’t. Especially since there will likely be more as the movement of $25-$100 donations continues. We are not even close to tapped out, those of us who gave up to $100.

$50 your way Senator. Anyone serious about change should signal their support of this decision to be financed by us and donate today!

McCain is toast from a fundraising standpoint. It’s the main reason – despite all the reformer straight talk BS – that […]

Apparently, having a Republican heap praise on a Democrat running for President is not so good for another Republican who happens to be running for the same job. Back during the primary, Illinois State Senator Kirk Dillard (R-Hinsdale) was featured in an Obama ad talking about how the Senator did great work in Illinois getting both sides to work together (ie: get shit done).

John McCain has but the kibosh on any of that kind of talk. The Chicago Tribune is reporting that Dillard has sent a letter to Obama strategist David Axelrod asking him not […]

In case there were any feminist outliers who wanted to think about voting for John McCain over Barack Obama due to perceived treatment of Hillary Clinton:

Clayton Williams is a prominent person in Texas politics. Prominent enough to secure the GOP gubernatorial election in 1990. During this election campaign he said various things that decent people find abhorrent, such as joking about rape that “As long as it’s inevitable, you might as well lie back and enjoy it.” These remarks were publicized in Texas and perhaps played a role in Williams’ 1990 loss. But this is a big country, and […]

Obama camp sees possible win without Ohio, Fla.

FLINT, Mich. (AP) — Barack Obama’s campaign envisions a path to the presidency that could include Virginia, Georgia and several Rocky Mountain states, but not necessarily the pair of battlegrounds that decided the last two elections — Florida and Ohio.

In a private pitch late last week to donors and former supporters of Hillary Rodham Clinton, Obama campaign manager David Plouffe outlined several alternatives to reaching the 270 electoral votes needed to win the White House that runs counter to the conventional wisdom of recent elections.

Overheard here:

The McCain surrogate campaign is boiling down to: “SO I CALLED YOU A NIGGER, HOW IS THAT RACIST, YOU MONKEY?”

Seemed good for YouTube Tuesday. More coming. Ouch. Pay particular attention to the end. A bit of Swiftboat comes around goes around, maybe? Hehe.

Today is the day. After some tough talk from some trusted friends, Hillary has finally decided to read the handwriting that has been on the wall for months. She will suspend her campaign and throw her support behind the presumptive nominee Barack Obama.

About time. I’m an Obama supporter and have been for a long time now, but I say the following as someone who wants real change from the Republican nightmare that got me blogging in the first place. Here is what I want to hear from Hillary:

She should rally her supporters and thank them for their […]

Watching History

On June 3, 2008 By

We’re watching history being made tonight and it will happen again in November. Simply awesome. This will be the moment that I will forever remember as having flown 9 hours home from Germany to see a family I’ve longed missed over the past week and had the chance to watch Barack Obama become the Democratic nominee for President of the United States of America.

I feel completely at home…
