“I realize that passing this budget won?t be easy. Because it represents real and dramatic change, it also represents a threat to the status quo in Washington. I know that the insurance industry won?t like the idea that they?ll have to bid competitively to continue offering Medicare coverage, but that?s how we?ll help preserve and protect Medicare and lower health care costs for American families. I know that banks and big student lenders won?t like the idea that we?re ending their huge taxpayer subsidies, but that?s how we?ll save taxpayers nearly $50 billion and make […]Full Story... →
As a child I was always extremely intrigued and slightly jealous of those who grew up in the 60s. Those who got to say they were there when the struggle for civil rights was being fought for. Those who witnessed the immense changes that were happening in our country. I always wished I could have said I was there. I daydreamed about what I would do in those times.
I always wondered what it was like to be in any watershed moment of our country.
Today, we are witness to one of those events.

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... →
I’m really not sure why this is unfair:
It seems like a perfectly legitimate question to me and is easily diffused. Release the records. I mean release them without the KGB type rules for viewing them. O’Reilly and the wingnuts are up in arms over it. They are willing to spend MONTHS on conspiracy theories over birth certificates, but are unwilling to take a full look at a candidate’s medical records? That’s one version of “fair and balanced”.
This would not be as big an issue if we weren’t staring down a Sarah Palin Presidency.

Details are coming out on the events of the day and it is crystal clear what is going on here. Barack Obama reached out to John McCain to try to work together to calm fears and settle the current economic crisis. John McCain and his Rovian pals tried to play this for political advantage.
It’s going to backfire.
Did you catch the details? Obama called McCain at 8:30am to work on a joint statement. McCain calls back at 2:30pm and agrees…then shortly after suspends his campaign, calls on he and Obama to go back to Washington, […]Full Story... →
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???

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 […]Full Story... →
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 […]Full Story... →
