• Nah, just a lifelong Democrat who's been wandering for 40 days in the wilderness.   So far I've seen a burning Bush and a false prophet.   Still waiting for "the one".  

  • So, Cinncinatus, you are the exception that proves the rule.  

    The reason your story is so compelling is that 999 men out of 1000 would not be able to give up absolute power but would instead be corrupted by it.  

  • Why would Daily Mail in the UK fake a photograph?   I mean, you can't make this stuff up.

  • Yes, clearly GWB gets a kick from adoration and from giving speeches to the "haves and the have-mores" (best line from Michael Moore's film Fahrenheit 911).  

    But ... erm ... I thought Democrats were lookin' out for the little guy.   How many hungry children might we be feeding with the money spent on tonight's fascistic extravaganza?

  • Ah but Cinncinatus, you are clearly biased, being already a member of the select Roman council.   Heil!  ... oops I mean Hail!

  • Yeah I know.   Actually though it's not satire.  It is a warning.

    How appropriate for a team that will be Bush-Cheney all over again.   Callow youth plus aged advisor.  

    Biden's had a chance to observe that partnership for 8 years now, and probably accepted VP because he relishes being the power behind the throne.  

    And, all in all, I'd 10 times rather have a Biden pulling the empty suit's strings than a Cheney.  

  • Good one!  I think someone already made the joke that he WILL notice.

  • I think they found, like 2?   Or maybe 3?     Hey that stuff is only moving if you believe that she and Barack have struggled mightily to transcend horrible adversity.   If that makes you cry it's for the same reason that seeing an amputee compete in the Olympics makes you cry.    Hey, her mom was able to stay home with her and her brother.    My wife and I can't stay home with our kids.  We both have to work.   So ... um ... basically if you could see Michelle with color blind eyes, you'd be saying "ho hum".    

  • "Simpering", that's the word I was groping for.    So unlike the Michelle who must've sat through 20 years of Jeremiah Wright's hate mongering.  So unlike the Michelle who said about Hillary "If she can't run control her husband, how can she control the government?"   Or how about the one who said, when asked if she would support Hillary as nominee, "I'd have to think long and hard about that."

    And how come she failed to mention the $300,000/year consulting job?

    What's with the little breathless fake crying sounds?   And why is everyone in the audience so bored?

  • comment on a post A Different Kind of Democratic Convention over 5 years ago

    Ha, McCain has already run at least one attack ad during this convention.   Wild.

  • Why in heaven's name would Obama pick Bill Clinton as VP?  He hates Bill Clinton, and he's so scared of having him around that's the main reason he'd never pick Hillary as VP.

    Or ... wait a minute ... did you mean McCain's VP?

  • ACORN = Obama = ACORN

    KYW in Philadelphia:
    "Philadelphia elections officials are accusing the nonprofit advocacy group "Acorn" of filing fraudulent voter registrations in advance of the April 22nd Pennsylvania primary.
    Acorn, which advocates on behalf of low-income residents in the city, has mounted a voter registration drive in the past few months. But city election commissioners are complaining that many of the submitted registrations appear to be faulty, and they have forwarded the matter to the district attorney's office for further investigation.
    Krista Holub, Acorn's political director in Pennsylvania, promised the elections officials that her group will cooperate:
    "We're very committed to helping low- to moderate-income people across the state get registered to vote. And we're here to work closely with the board of elections to make sure that everyone we're helping to apply gets on the rolls."
    The city officials say many of the addresses listed on the registrations are invalid, but Acorn blames the post office for not adequately servicing low-income communities.
    That's rich. It's all the post office's fault!
    Last October, three elections hoaxers who worked for the far Left group ACORN pleaded guilty in Seattle for their role in the biggest election fraud scheme in Washington state history. It's the same ACORN tied to massive voter fraud in Missouri. And Ohio. And 12 other states.
    --------
    The Seattle story:
    "Three of seven defendants in the biggest voter-registration fraud scheme in Washington history have pleaded guilty and one has been sentenced, prosecutors said Monday.
    The defendants were all temporary employees of ACORN, the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, when they allegedly filled out and submitted more than 1,800 fictitious voter-registration cards during a 2006 registration drive in King and Pierce counties.
    No votes were cast in the names of the phony voters. Prosecutors said the defendants committed fraud in order to keep their jobs without actually registering voters.
    King County election workers brought the fraud to the attention of prosecutors last October, after noticing that signatures on many registration forms looked like they had been written by the same person."

  • Wow, that paragraph made no sense at all.   Let me try that again:

    While it was understandable purely on the grounds of political expedience (i.e., "politics as usual") to use sex against the Clintons ... just take a page from Rove's playbook and voila you have a ready-made smear campaign ... it's somewhat surprising to see all the outrage about Edwards.
