I've gotta hand it to McCain. When a candidate has nothing to run on, and everything to run away from, distractions are indeed the way to go.

Bravo John McCain. The smarmiest and slickest huckster to run for President since Nixon.



Make sure nobody attacks Palin. It's sexist!

Sickening

the GOP's 'war on change' said...

McCain has no debating skills.

By turning the campaign into a name-calling contest, the GOP is trying to take the discussion of relevant issues "off the table"

The less McCain has to respond to real issues/real change, the less chance he'll get caught in the act of telling lies to cover his complicity in the Bush administration's long list of failures.

I am sick of the republican claiming to represent real America, because all they present is an idealized version from the 1950s. I live in real America, and that is what they constantly are putting down.

Using the tactics of their masters who created the "Anti-Defamation League" so jews can't be attacked without the pathetic "anti-semite" label.

KEITH

Nixon won twice, once against a Democrat more liberal than obama.

You should remember than Nixon is the one who went to China and helped bring them in from the cold - who says McCain will not do likewise.

The problem with McCain is that aging seniors (aka baby boomers) will want an old white guy (and what better way to dress up an old guy that with some sexy arm candy) to protect their theft of my future. I declare generational warfare! These selfish and aging baby boomers did nothing to prepare, spent all their money and want me to pay for it! F#$K YOU! I will shed no tears for aging seniors when they can’t get their operations since there will not be anyone around to pay for their health care. You planned POORLY and your greed shows by the fact that we are in a crisis beyond anything you can imagine. We have a perfect storm about to hit our coasts (you would only wish it was IKE).

1. In debt to our enemies (oh wait China isn’t the bad guy anymore…but aren’t they communist? I guess freedom is only a selective right for people and counties)
2. Bank fraud up the wasso and a collapse of our housing market. How can billions of dollars disappearing not cause problems? It is so absurd to think otherwise.
3. The march of the Baby Boomers to retirement and their “entitlement” programs which are underfunded. Why should I vote for a system you cannot promise to me?
4. Bank collapses on a WEEKLY basis!?!?! I mean this should be a HUGE wake up call. It seems the new sport to watch on the weekend is “Which major institution will fail next?”

American failed….when we should have been building infrastructure like cheap public transportation (light rail, etc), we were buying up houses and Hummers. I am soo glad I am young enough to be able to weather this out for thirty years. Baby Boomers heed this warning; I will vote against you, I will do everything in my power to make sure you suffer in age since you have no consideration for my future. You have stolen from me…your leaders, your policies, your entitlements, your future lies on the shoulders of my generation…it is a weight too heavy and you should not have expected me to bare it in the first place.

Keith, thanks for starting this site. It might be the only thing that keeps me sane.

I know I shouldn't be heartbroken. I shouldn't care. Both sides are corrupt, right? But to see Rovian politics work in real time hurts me deeply. Just when I was about to believe that Americans weren't just a bunch of asswipes. But who was I kidding? The same jerks who believed the ponzi scheme, who disavowed any reality with the housing market, from house laddering exurban nightmare families, to their shyster brokers, to the bankers lending China's money and selling them shit back in return, they all have a vested interest in propping up the facade... everyone just sticks their fingers in their ears and sngs "la-la-la" as the hurricanes wipe out the Home Depots and the Mozillos wipe out the 401k's.

I live abroad and I'll be alright. Our currency and government here are strong and smart. We'll handle the global downturn fine. But I'm so sad for my friends and family who will have to deal with the ramifications of modern American Idiocracy. But other than them, I actually want to see a devine clusterfuck happen. I want vengence on the Cinnabun gas guzzeling ignorant assholes. Maybe thet'll get reality based when they are turned away from Salvation Army cause the soup's run out.

The Rove Doctrine in full bloom said...

The Rove tactics in full display.

Next weeks financial unwinding just MIGHT enable asshole Joe Six Pack to understand he is doomed without a new regime in charge...

8 years of Sarah Palin?

I think not.

It's always darkest before the dawn

Bring on the debates. This is going to be Fuuun.

"Make sure nobody attacks Palin. It's sexist!"

But St. Barry is okay to say anybody who attacks his lack of position other than 'change' is racist!

Sir, you are no Centrist, and you should just admit it. To call yourself a Centrist is to say Keith Olberman is a serious investigative journalist. Oh wait-- in your "centrist" view, he is.

Frank@Scottsdale-Sucks.com said...

Hey, since day one the liberal media has been suggesting that anything against Obama is racist, and Obama himself has played that race card over and over again.

So fair is fair. It's payback time for him with the sexist Palin stuff. He asked for it and he deserves it.

The debates will be fun to watch. In case no one else has noticed, Obama stutters and stammers worse then Dubya without a pre-scripted teleprompter in his face. Maybe he'll slip up and reveal that he's really a Muslim again ... lol

I thought I was the only person annoyed by obama's constant uh, um, repeating himself and falling back on quirky little sayings when he is required to speak impromptu.

yea, its difficult to find any reference in the liberal MSM of obama talking about his muslim faith. Let Palin slip up once , just once and we will hear about it all week long.

I don't think the debates aren't going to be the slam dunk the liberals think they will be. especially the palin/biden debate. She is going to make biden look old, out of date, out of touch, and total establishment.

Not only that, but the Palin-Biden debate will probably get more viewers than the McCain-Obama debates. Not a good sign for the dems, but it's their own fault as their very own liberal media won't stop talking about her.

Never mind the first black president or first female vice-president ... we're looking at the first presidential election in history where the VP pick will decide the election.

That ad is pretty lame. Obvious and dumb. Like, seems to me like it appeals to 12 year old emotions or a chic who gets pissed/feels victimized easily.

Love the use of a woman's voice to make a 'disrespectful' claim. Guess the intent is women are supposed to relate and join the outrage.

Yawn.

McCain is a LIAR. Every one of the quotes in that commercial weren't just taken out of context, they were completely twisted to edit a story that never happened. Here's the truth:

http://www.factcheck.org/elections-2008/belittling_palin.html

Most Americans are so fucking stupid!

My idiot neo-con in-laws just sent me an email (shouldn't have even read it) describing how people who support Obama see him a "savior" because he's black, and white people are ashamed of being white. Wow! How out of touch are these morons?

I support Obama because his highly intelligent, articulate and his policies will help bring some balance back to this country. Eight long years of GWB have made me hate the USA, and I'm tired of feeling ashamed that I have to share the same citizenship with people like Frank.

You won't - because as we know, although Keith claims to hate Democrats and Republicans alike, actions speak louder than words.

Don't try to cover it up with a few posts, Keith - the archives are there for everyone to see.
