McCain stopped his campaign? Let's see...

A presidential campaign involves the following:

1. traveling to places to make speeches
2. achieving press exposure and media coverage
3. running advertising
4. operating campaign offices
5. engaging consultants
6. conducting polls

In the last 48 hours, McCain has been:

1. traveling to places to make speeches
2. achieving press exposure and media coverage
3. running advertising

5. engaging consultants
6. conducting polls

Halted campaign? Senator, we're still waiting.

Is Palin Qualified? Vote in this PBS poll

PBS has an online poll asking if you think Palin is qualified to be VP. To my horror, Palin is winning. Let's turn this around!

Not outraged? You're not paying attention!

According to an e-mail circulating the rounds, Lee Iacocca makes some provocative, angry, and on-point statements in his 2007 autobiography.

Whether or not he really says these things, I don't know. If anyone has read his book, please confirm. Regardless, they're worth repeating.

"Am I the only guy in this country who's fed up with what's happening? Where the hell is our outrage? We should be screaming bloody murder.

We've got a gang of clueless bozos steering our ship of state right over a cliff, we've got corporate gangsters stealing us blind, and we can't even clean up after a hurricane much less build a hybrid car. But instead of getting mad, everyone sits around and nods their heads when the politicians say, "Stay the course"

Stay the course? You've got to be kidding. This is  America , not the damned "Titanic".  I'll give you a sound bite: "Throw all the bums out!"

The Conservative Movement 1964-2008 R.I.P.

On the morning of Wednesday, November 5th -- when we celebrate an historic Democratic landslide -- we will know that the moment John McCain lost this race was the exact moment he embraced the conservative movement at the expense of his own hard-earned perception of being a maverick.

His latest attacks on Obama, which sadly rely on the tired, old smear and fear tactics of Bush/Cheney/Rove, only belie McCain's understanding of a deeper political reality:


The conservative movement is dead.

House Democrats win FISA fight

I didn't see this story covered here on MyDD, and someone ought to make note of it for those of us caught up in the Hillary-Barack race. So...

Today the House Democrats scored a victory over President Bush and telecom immunity when they adjourned the House for President's Day weekend without passing the Protect America Act, which expires Saturday. In doing so, they stood up to fear mongering. And as several Members of Congress noted, we're still very much protected, despite what Bush would have us otherwise believe.

Here's an excerpt from Former NSC official Richard Clarke's 2/1/08 op-editorial in the Philadelphia Inquirer making that point.

Let me be clear: Our ability to track and monitor terrorists overseas would not cease should the Protect America Act expire. If this were true, the president would not threaten to terminate any temporary extension with his veto pen. All surveillance currently occurring would continue even after legislative provisions lapsed because authorizations issued under the act are in effect up to a full year.

How Clinton Can Still Win

MEMO TO:    Hillary Clinton & campaign staff

SUBJECT:    How Clinton Can Still Win

The nominating process is far from over. While Clinton will be challenged to score primary victories and catch up in pledged delegates, she need not have the most of either to secure the nomination. So long as she wins without destroying credibility or good will in the process, she can win the nomination while enjoying the support of a strong and unified party.

So how does she do it? How does she rack up some convincing primary wins, roll up a few pledged delegates, while convincing the super delegates to back her?

And here's the real question: how does she convince the party as a whole -- including those who have already voted and even current Obama supporters -- that she really is the best candidate for us in November?

What we're up against: "God is on our side"

Here's what a NY Times reader wrote 2/7/08 in response to Romney dropping out. I couldn't make this up, it speaks for itself.

"As a conservative that supported the New Republicans, Reagan, both Bush presidents, and even got involved in elections, I am looking for a conservative that will take a stand for Pro-Life. I am not satisfied with a one-time voter for it, like McCain.The real problem with the left media is that they think the entire conservative right is demented and brainwashed with religion. Well, it is too bad a few million bad apples have ruined the country.

What they fail to understand is that many have actually made contact with God, and are hiding the fact. They are not deluded. They know and are in communication, and it is undetectable by those without the ability. Unfortunately, it cannot be proved without someone actually doing it. It exceeds any scientific device I know of. Once I didn't have a clue, and now I know. It is no longer faith or supposition, it is fact. That is why conservatives stand united, because they are bound by something beyond nature. I suppose if the liberals found out that many conservatives could communicate between each other anywhere in the whole world, or for that matter universe, in a microsecond, without technology, it would just scare them. Too bad, that is just one of a million benefits of having God on your side. Well, have a nice day-same to you my fellow believers tied to my thoughts and prayers. Remember, we don't need to win elections to win the final battle. That is a given already. We just need to keep working incognito. By the way, this email is not really for the public. It was for you reading it. You were the target. You are being called to know Jesus. Don't be afraid, seek Him, and He will show you how real He is."
