In Maddow’s second part of the interview she has solid questions and Barack Obama has complete answers. It’s not a softball ‘Larry King’ interview. [No offense to Mr. King.] These are specific answers to questions that needed to be asked. It was unusual for a candidate in the last days of a campaign to make time for this interview. It is a testament to his desire for the nation to know who he is and what he truly believes.
I didn’t know until today that Rachel Maddow is, in addition to being a very good radio host and funny as hell, also a Standford University graduate with a degree in Public Policy. Thereafter she was awarded a Rhodes scholarship where she received her Doctorate of Political Science degree. No wonder she’s smarter than I am. She now has her own television show on MSNBC in addition to her two hour show on Air America. Here’s the first part of her interview with Barack Obama yesterday in Sarasota, Florida Barack Obama’s references to the necessary rebuilding of key elements of our national structure, using the electrical grid as a reference point, is important. According to a study some years ago … Continue reading
Barack Obama has two key messages for everyone that supports his effort to become the President. First, don’t take the polls at face value. Second, work, work, work! As he keeps saying at every stop and in every interview, turnout of his voters is crucial to his victory. He tells his crowds and newspeople to take nothing for granted. The polls mean nothing to him in these last days. Democrats, especially the one’s that were centrally involved in Al Gore’s campaign, are flinchy and concerned about the ‘October Surprise’ or the ‘November 2nd Surprise’. They, like me, don’t trust the strategic minds of the Republican Right Wing to stay silent and uninvolved in this campaign. We’ve made that mistake too … Continue reading
Good morning you ghouls and goblins and you imps of progressive political mischief (you know who you are). Pull up your candy corn and morning cuppa for a special Halloween edition of today’s Ten Post Round-Up. There are only 4 days left before we experience some kind of change in the political, national, and international landscape. If that doesn’t scare you, then nothing will! But, honestly, you haven’t seen scary until you have checked out this YouTube. It’s positively eerie: “Thriller”… with Legos
Rolling Stone has published a cover story on John McCain that has the most damning, well documented biography of his life I’ve seen. I thought I knew the deceptions of John McCain. I didn’t know one-tenth of the real story. I won’t try to summarize this lengthy article. There is simply too much data, too much collaboration and too much much shocking evidence of this mans total disqualification from the highest office in the land. While this article is lengthy it must be read and spread as far as our readers can spread it. Trying to summarize the evidence in the article is impossible. As any well written piece, the narrative builds on itself to an inescapable conclusion. John McCain, … Continue reading
(See yesterday’s post,”Gee. Where’s Michael Goldfarb?“) Goldfarb located on Google radar (@ 11:28 AM, 30Oct2008) … McCain, Palin demand L.A. Times release Obama video Los Angeles Times, CA – 18 minutes ago Asked to comment on McCain’s involvement with the Khalidi institute, campaign spokesman Michael Goldfarb replied, “You all can get a response as soon as you hand over the videotape.” Gosh.

I don’t have anything really snarky to say, today. I’m plotting my post for tomorrow (specially Halloween edition) and so all the really cool stuff I could say about today’s post pretty much ended up on the cutting room floor. So, take today’s Ten Post Round-Up with a grain of salt and your morning cuppa and remember that in less than one week, we WILL have a new president, whether you like him or not (Mwahhahahahaha!)…no, seriously. As if you haven’t heard about enough polls, this election, take some time to check out this poll of the World of Warcraft online community: Election Duel! Obama V. McCain – Who Get’s Pwned?
