Here's what makes this really fun: Rick Sanchez is kinda dumb

A good friend worked with him a WSVN down in Miami about a million years ago. Not the smartest fork in the drawer. But here he is smacking down Mike Goldfarb from the McCain campaign.

What a weasley little weasel.


The SMART ones...?

Saxby Chambliss is NOT a drag queen's name (yet), no matter how fucking much it sounds like a drag queen's name.

He is a US Senator (R) from Georgia. For now. The race (oooh, "race") is close.

Apparently he's trying to use a little racism to fire up his "base."

The Republican is outwardly confident, but there's urgency in his voice as he tours North Georgia, trying to boost turnout in his predominately white base: "The other folks are voting," he bluntly tells supporters.

(PSSST, I *think* he's talking about the blacks.)


Why do YOU vote?

Allowing myself to hope.

I will be really really pissed off if Obama loses. He's got me all hopped up on hope.

Sweet that it uses Woody Guthrie's "This Land is Your Land"--I recently heard the full version of the song. We didn't learn the complete song in elementary school. But the lyrics are worthy of knowing.

As I was walkin' - I saw a sign there
And that sign said - no tress passin'
But on the other side .... it didn't say nothin!
Now that side was made for you and me!

In the squares of the city - In the shadow of the steeple
Near the relief office - I see my people
And some are grumblin' and some are wonderin'
If this land's still made for you and me.


Puppet theater!

I'm sooo enjoying this last week of the campaigns.

Sarah Palin, socialist.

Good for her!

We all need a little more cowbell.


Seriously people, vote by mail

How much fucking stupidity do you need to see before you change?


A note to John McCain

People who use air quotes, look like douches.

She got Maverick juice all over their campaign...


Early voting hours in Florida extended!!!

When you see Charlie Crist at the Parliament House in Orlando say "thanks" to him!

Even Joe Piscopo got to keep his job...

From Daily Kos:

In 1980, NBC's hit Saturday Night Live went through its worst season ever, which culminated in the sacking of every cast member with the exceptions of Eddie Murphy and Joe Piscopo.

Every Republican officeholder in the business today is scrambling to prove to the voters that he's Eddie Murphy.

Understanding the difference between candidates

Much love to Daily Kos diary of Eman for continuing this (which is where I'm picking it up). From here.

# If you grow up in Hawaii, raised by your single mother and grandparents, you're "exotic, different."

# If you grow up in Alaska eating moose burgers, you're a quintessential American story.

# If your name is Barack, you're a radical, unpatriotic Muslim.

# If you name your kids Willow, Trig and Track, you're a maverick.

# If you graduate from Harvard Law School, you are unstable.

# If you drop out of four different small colleges before graduating from the fifth, you're well grounded.

# If you spend three years as a community organizer, become the first black President of the Harvard Law Review, create a voter registration drive that registers 150,000 new voters, spend 12 years as a Constitutional Law professor, spend eight years as a State Senator representing a district with over 750,000 people, become chairman of the state Senate's Health and Human Services committee, spend 4 years in the United States Senate representing a state of 13 million people while sponsoring 131 bills and serving on the Foreign Affairs, Environment and Public Works and Veteran's Affairs committees, and then create and manage the most organized political campaign in history, you don't have any real leadership experience.

# If your total resume is: local weather girl, four years on the city council and six years as the mayor of a town with less than 7,000 people, 20 months as the governor of a state with only 650,000 people, accused of abuse of power as mayor, found guilty of abuse of power as governor, currently under further investigation for more abuse of power as governor, then you're qualified to become the country's second highest ranking executive.

# If you have been married to the same woman for 19 years while raising two beautiful daughters, all within mainstream Protestant churches, you're not a real Christian.

# If you cheated on your first wife with a rich heiress, dumped your disfigured wife and your children, then married the heiress the following month, you're a Christian.

# If your former pastor, an ex-Marine who helped save a President's life, from this country's oldest mainline Protestant denomination denounces past racism in America, you are guilty by association of being "unAmerican."

# If your pastor prays to secure you high government office and protect you from witchcraft, you are "born again."

# If you teach responsible, age appropriate sex education, including the proper use of birth control, you are eroding the fiber of society.

# If you staunchly advocate abstinence only, charge rape victims for the cost of testing their criminal rapists, provide no option in sex education in your state's school system, while your unwed teen daughter ends up pregnant, you're very responsible.

# If your spouse is a Harvard graduate lawyer who gave up a position in a prestigious law firm to work for the betterment of her inner city community, then gave that up to raise a family, your family's values don't represent America's.

# If your spouse is nicknamed "First Dude", with at least one DWI conviction, no college education, who didn't register to vote until age 25, once was a card-carrying member of a group that advocated the secession of Alaska from the USA, and used your elected office to orchestrate a continuing personal vendetta, your family is extremely admirable.

# If you live in the same city and served on a charity board with a leading education professor who did something bad when you were eight years old, you "pall around" with terrorists.

# If you not only supported but once managed a slush fund for a convicted felon, you are a reformer.

Happy Monday

CNN reporting:
A jury found U.S. Sen. Ted Stevens of Alaska guilty Monday of all seven counts in his federal corruption trial.
