Baby, if you've ever wondered

On Sunday John McCain announced his “new thing” is to always wear a band-aid, "like Les Nessman did in WKRP in Cincinatti." On Monday the elderly Senator chose to wear the band-aid on top of his head. Stay tuned for more on this disturbing development.

Fruitcake interpretations

A new low for B. H. Obama: now he’s distorting the Bible!

Theology aside, his remarks are curious. In every college dorm room debate on religion the atheist side will, at some point, bring up Leviticus on slavery and shellfish. It’s odd hearing a Christian do so.

During the Jeremiah Wright ‘crisis’, the Obama apologists excused his attending a radical church claiming Obama was there for the Jesus talk, which Obama loves, not the hate whitey ranting, which Obama grudgingly tolerated. Barry’s facile interpretation of the Scriptures suggest it was the other way around.

Lark over

Is there anything Karl Rove isn’t a fathead about? Referring to Barry Hussein Obama Rove said, "Even if you never met him, you know this guy. He's the guy at the country club with the beautiful date, holding a martini and a cigarette that stands against the wall and makes snide comments about everyone who passes by."

But Obama isn’t that guy at all. He’s the guy in the center of the room, schmoozing and trying to impress the ‘important’ people with his cleanliness and his articulate earnest idealism. Also the guys who make the snide remarks prefer brown liquor, and we don’t stand against the wall, we stand by the bar.

He's what?

Barry Obama is ‘transcending race’ again:
It is going to be very difficult for Republicans to run on their stewardship of the economy or their outstanding foreign policy," Obama told a fundraiser in Jacksonville, Florida. "We know what kind of campaign they're going to run. They're going to try to make you afraid.
"They're going to try to make you afraid of me. He's young and inexperienced and he's got a funny name. And did I mention he's black?"
"Ultimately I think the American people recognize that old stuff hasn't moved us forward. That old stuff just divides us," he said.
The Obama is, of course, young and inexperienced. He has perhaps the thinnest résumé of any major party presidential nominee ever. His name is funny. And even the stupidest voters don’t need to be told he is black.

All of which The Obama well knows, but he can’t resist using the divisive tactic of suggesting his critics are racist fear mongerers. What a turd.

Today's highlights from the McCain campaign trail

John McCain has no publicly scheduled events.”

Same as it ever was

The latest clown to dance through the hall is Senator John McCain of Arizona, who entertained the nation and quite befuddled much of its political class with his antics during the presidential primaries last winter. Prior to his victory in New Hampshire over Texas Governor George W. Bush, most observers predicted he would indeed win there but nowhere else, though no one anticipated a McCain victory as smashing as the one he actually pulled off. But no sooner had the Arizona solon won in New Hampshire than an entire regiment of journalists and commentators fell into a swoon. Mr. McCain beat Mr. Bush by an impressive 18 percentage points in New Hampshire, and by the following day, some pundits -- namely neo-conservative chatterbox Bill Kristol -- had glimpsed nothing less than the bright dawn of political revolution.

Writing in The Washington Post the very day after the New Hampshire primary, Mr. Kristol announced that "It is John McCain and Bill Bradley who each now have a chance that occurs only once a generation -- to articulate a new governing agenda for a potential new majority." So much for the prophetic insights of Mr. Kristol, but while he was almost unique in thinking Bill Bradley could shatter the Clinton-Gore juggernaut, he was by no means alone in trumpeting what Mr. McCain was about to accomplish. A few days later his fellow neo-conservative Charles Krauthammer also started booming Mr. McCain, assuring us that although Mr. Bush was "more reliably conservative," it was Mr. McCain who was the sure winner. To the neo-con mind, of course, that pretty much clinched it. Why the hell would anyone support a candidate he actually agrees with on principles when he can go with an alternative who's sure to grab the power? "The question for Republicans," the intrepid Krauthammer assured us, "is not who will make the better president but who is more likely to be president." The sentence perfectly reveals the immense gulf that gapes between the different mentalities of conservatives and neo-conservatives. I, of course, cannot speak for Republicans, but for most serious people on the political right, (and indeed most who are serious on the left) the real question is how to turn the man who would make the better president into the man most likely to be president.

June Campaign Roundup

"Gore Endorses Obama as a Solver of Problems", doesn’t mention single problem Obama ever solved.

“I won't wait until the sixth year of my presidency to sit down with the automakers. I'll meet with them during my campaign, and I'll meet with them as president to talk about how we're going to build the cars of the future right here in Michigan.” - Barack Obama, explaining how years spent as a Community Activist on the streets of the inner city gave him vast expertise in automotive engineering.

The Communist Chinese report Michelle Obama and Cindy McCain are having a bakeoff. Why do aspiring First Ladies compete in contests to demonstrate they are qualified, but all aspiring Presidents do is talk?

Communists closer to home complain neither candidate shares the Communist/Libertarian position on open borders.

Who said it?

I assure you, with confidence, at the end of my first term you will see a dramatic increase of women in every part of the government, in my administration.”
