Well, at least they'll say that in a time of immense and historical national crisis, he was consistent in his incompetence

The worst president ever.

And we all paid the price.

The Great Unwinding and Panic of 2008 will make many consider issues greater than money

It's too bad the current Republican Party pretended to be the Party of God to get the votes of the ignorant.

Because the party of money and greed probably is riding a camel at this point.

If John McCain and Sarah Palin (Idiot) somehow amazingly win this election,

AmericaPANIC Quote of the Day

"That's what happens when we have idiots running our country and idiots who vote for them."

- Anon HP poster, October 11, 2008

I'm not sure about Fox News anymore. Is it a discredited joke, or is it simply evil?

Free thinking aware people: It's a joke, and yes, in some ways, it's evil

Idiots: I believe everything they tell me to believe, because I'm a mindless, ignorant idiot.

And then another true Republican threw John McCain and Sarah Palin (Idiot) under the bus. And rolled over 'em a few times.

Here's Chris Buckley, from the National Review. And it's nice to see these true Republicans put country above politics, and admit what we all know is true:

McCain and Palin (Idiot) are unacceptable, disgusting, dangerous, and a national embarrassment.

Now if we can just get Frank to admit that too, I think we could all move on.

Sorry, Dad, I'm Voting for Obama

by Christopher Buckley

I am—drum roll, please, cue trumpets—making this announcement in the cyberpages of The Daily Beast (what joy to be writing for a publication so named!) rather than in the pages of National Review, where I write the back-page column. For a reason: My colleague, the superb and very dishy Kathleen Parker, recently wrote in National Review Online a column stating what John Cleese as Basil Fawlty would call “the bleeding obvious”: namely, that Sarah Palin is an embarrassment, and a dangerous one at that. She’s not exactly alone. New York Times columnist David Brooks, who began his career at NR, just called Governor Palin “a cancer on the Republican Party.”

John McCain has changed. He said, famously, apropos the Republican debacle post-1994, “We came to Washington to change it, and Washington changed us.” This campaign has changed John McCain. It has made him inauthentic. A once-first class temperament has become irascible and snarly; his positions change, and lack coherence; he makes unrealistic promises, such as balancing the federal budget “by the end of my first term.” Who, really, believes that? Then there was the self-dramatizing and feckless suspension of his campaign over the financial crisis. His ninth-inning attack ads are mean-spirited and pointless. And finally, not to belabor it, there was the Palin nomination. What on earth can he have been thinking?

Obama has in him—I think, despite his sometimes airy-fairy “We are the people we have been waiting for” silly rhetoric—the potential to be a good, perhaps even great leader. He is, it seems clear enough, what the historical moment seems to be calling for.

AmericaPANIC Serious Question of the Day

What's crashing faster:

A) The Dow
B) The McCain Campaign

And then the sheeple finally came to understand that George W. Bush was the Worst President in the History of the United States

"Bush has now tied Richard Nixon's worst rating ever, taken in a poll just before he resigned in 1975, and is only 2 points higher than the worst presidential approval rating in history, Harry Truman's 22 percent mark in February 1952"

- CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.

John McCain is a dark, mean, hot-headed, unstable man. But hey, you knew that anyway, didn't ya?

Oh, he's also a terrorist, a Muslim, he eats little puppies and he doesn't wash his hands after going to the loo.

If McCain wants to play dirty, then dirty we will play.

2009: The end of gridlock.

Well, let's see what the Democrats can do with the ship, after the Republicans wrecked America.

Be afraid. But have a bit of hope too. Because it'll be tough to f*ck it up as bad as the GOP did 2001 - 2006.

And then John McCain, a worthless piece of sh*t, sent his wife out to proclaim that Obama was running "the dirtiest campaign in American history"

Man, if that ain't the pot calling the kettle black, I don't know what is.

John McCain has just a few more weeks to embarrass himself, while destroying his party. However, the good news is that he will now go down to a thunderous defeat. You will see a rejection of John McCain and the Republican Party that will shock you and shock the world.

America is quickly coming to hate John McCain. And his wife. And his running mate. And everything he's ever pretended to be.

An epic and total failure. And a sad, sad man running the most depressing and cynical campaign in the history of America.

Cindy McCain claims Obama is waging dirty campaign

WASHINGTON (AP) - Cindy McCain has accused Democratic presidential nominee Barack Obama of running "the dirtiest campaign in American history."

In remarks reported Tuesday by The Tennessean, she said she initially did not want her husband John McCain to seek the Republican presidential nomination after a brutal primary struggle in 2000 against George W. Bush.

"The days of Ronald Reagan and Tip O'Neill are what we need to look to: a divided government but a government that needs to agree to disagree," Cindy McCain told reporters after visiting children at a Nashville hospital and prior to the presidential debate. "We're now seeing polarizing factions, people politicizing things that should be about what's best for America. Instead, they're doing what's best for themselves."

The Obama campaign declined to comment.

I'm John McCain. I'm a desperate, sleazy, un-American, mean-spirited, out-of-touch, erratic and dangerous piece of sh*t. And I approve this message.

Here's the latest from John McCain, a sad, sad man. Running easily the most disgusting and dirty campaign of the past 100 years.

I feel sorry for McCain. If he had died years ago, his reputation would have been an honorable one.

And now? He'll go down as a piece of trash, and the man who finally destroyed the Republican party once and for all.

And for that, I guess we can say, thank you John McCain.

HOLY CRAP!!! Ultra-Republican David Brooks says Sarah Palin (Idiot) "represents a fatal cancer to the Republican party". Wow.

Nice to see the adults in the GOP finally stand up for what is right, not for what is politically convenient.

GOP appeasers like Sean Hannity, Anne Coulter and Rush Limbaugh should now be pushed aside - by their peers. They are traitors to the nation, they are traitors to the real Republican party. And they wrecked America.

It's nice to see there are some honest, intellectual and mature voices in the now-dead GOP. I hope they can bury their hijacked disaster of a party, and start anew.

And for the few die-hard GOP spinmeisters who post here (uh, Frank comes to mind). Repent. Admit what we all know. Your party wrecked America. The McCain campaign has been a disaster. Sarah Palin is an unqualifed, ignorant and dangerous idiot. And your party, built by devious souls on the backs of the ignorant masses, is dead.

Just got done watching the 2nd debate. zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz......

Man, I wish these two would mix it up.

Economy is crashing. We're bogged down in a stupid war. Our leaders in DC have failed us in an epic fashion. And these two brought almost zero passion to the game. Might as well have been watching a European Union debate.


So, what'd you think?

We deserve better. Format, if not candidates.

Yup. This about sums it up.

TIME's Joe Klein on the disaster that is the McCain/Palin(Idiot) campaign

"I'm of two minds about how to deal with the McCain campaign's further descent into ugliness. Their strategy is simple: you throw crap against a wall and then giggle as the media try to analyze the putresence in a way that conveys a sense of balance:

"Well, it is bull-pucky, but the splatter pattern is interesting..." which, of course, only serves to get your perverse message out.

I really don't want to be a part of that. But...every so often, we journalists have a duty to remind readers just how dingy the McCain campaign, and its right-wing acolytes in the media (I'm looking at you, Sean Hannity) have become--especially in their efforts to divert public attention from the economic crisis we're facing. And so inept at it: other campaigns have decided that their only shot is going negative, but usually they don't announce it, as several McCain aides have in recent days--there's no way we can win on the economy, so we're going to go sludge-diving.

But since we are dealing with manure here, I'll put the rest of this post below the fold.

It is appropriate that the prime vessel for this assault is Sarah Palin, whose very presence on a national ticket is an insult to your intelligence. She now has "credibility," we are told, because she managed to read talking points off notecards in the debate last week with unwitting enthusiasm."

Olbermann Special Comment on Sarah Palin (Idiot) - "The sleaziest politician working the stage right now"

Newsweek's Howard Wolfson: "It's over"

It was all about housing and the economy stupid.

Just like we said it would be.

"Perpetually fretting Democrats will not want to accept it. The campaigns themselves can't afford to believe it. Many journalists know it but can't say it. And there will certainly be some twists and turns along the way. But take it to a well capitalized bank: Bill Ayers isn't going to save John McCain. The race is over.

"John McCain's candidacy is as much a casualty of Wall Street as Lehman or Merrill. Like those once vibrant institutions, McCain's collapse was stunning and quick. One minute you are a well-respected brand. The next you are yelling at the messengers of your demise as all around you the numbers start blinking red and stop adding up."

It's nice to see the women of America rejecting John McCain's negative and hopeless campaign, and his cynical and insulting pick of Sarah Palin Idiot

This race, John McCain, Sarah Palin, George Bush, Dick Cheney and the Republican Party are over.



Goodbye, good riddance and thanks for playing.

May we never see the likes of you again.

But now, thanks to them, what a mess we have on our hands.

thanks N.W.

Bill Maher has a few words about Sarah Palin

October 6, 2008

This video would have seemed sensationalist and tin-foil-hat for sure a few years ago. Well, not anymore. Here's Naomi Wolfe. Have at it.

George W. Bush - one of the most destructive human beings in world history, shares with you his deep thoughts on the economy he wrecked

And then the race got ugly, while the country fell apart. Obama pulls out the Keating Five gun and fires. Talk about kicking a guy when he's down.

Looks like they've both decided that personal destruction is what the voters wanted. Instead of rational discourse on the nation's problems and what they'd do to fix a broken country.

Bad move.

And more of why Americans hate their leaders, and both political parties.

At the same time, it is nice to see Obama not lay down to the GOP machine, like Dukakis, Gore and Kerry did before him.

The debate Tuesday night is gonna be hot.

AmericaPANIC has a special message for Sarah Palin: Go **** yourself. Can I be any more clear than that?

Sarah Palin represents all that is wrong with America today.

Ignorant. Incompetent. Cynical. And willing to say and do anything to get elected. Even if that's calling your opponent an unpatriotic terrorist who hates America. You know, like Bush and Cheney did to opponents of the Iraq Debacle.

Sarah Palin, and John McCain, and Karl Rove, go **** yourselves. The majority of Americans thankfully aren't buying your party's crap and gutter politics anymore.

Sarah Palin insinuating that Obama is a terrorist who thinks America is a force of evil should outrage all free-thinking patriotic Americans. She should be voraciously and loudly protested anywhere she rears her head in the final days of her and McCain's dying campaign.

Palin showed her true character by not categorically rejecting this Rick Davis crap. She was either too stupid or too immoral to do the right thing. And she should be ashamed.

Springsteen in Philly on Bush and Obama and the need for an "American Reclamation Project"

And Thunder Road for the fans

I debated posting this. But then I decided, what the heck. If you can't talk about politics and religion, what else is there to talk about?

Especially since politics and religion in America have become one and the same.

Have at it.

Wrong man. Wrong party. Wrong time. Just wrong.

Here's the SNL Biden/Palin debate youtube video. Enjoy.

I'll miss Palin. Sure was good for a few weeks of entertainment and comedy.
