Credible? Incredible!

There are two astonishing liars out there. One of them lasted for 24 hours. The other remains America’s Sweetheart™. And one wonders: what has happened to the old concept of “truthfulness.” (And of “Truth” itself among the self-proclaimed moral mavens of the bloviating class.) “special” wardrobe needs Greg Mitchell, editor of Editor & Publisher (the newspaper industry’s trade magazine) writes on the Huffington Post: (slightly reformatted) by moi):

Republicans In Civil War?

There are many signs of a Republican revolt. It ranges from wide spread dissatisfaction or outright conversion to the Democratic nominee Barack Obama. Yesterday the was the defection of CC Goldwater and her siblings. Even Neo-Con Ken Adelmann has switched reportedly switched to Obama along with Susan Eisenhower , a former constitutional legal counsel to two Republican presidents Doug Kmiec ,former Congressman Jim Leach, former Senator Lincoln Chafee, Congressman Wayne Gilchrist and the list goes on. Now we find a comprehensive story about the apparent Republican civil war at the Politico. According to a dishy piece in the Politico, “One well-connected Republican in the private sector was shocked to get calls and resumes in the past few days from what … Continue reading

Bloodbath in the House?

The Republicans themselves seem to think it’s possible: An internal document circulating among House Republicans warns of an impending congressional bloodbath, listing 58 Republican-held House seats being at risk, and 11 already considered as good as gone. As many as 34 GOP-held seats are in serious jeopardy of swinging to Democrats, the assessment shows. What with the Senate also looking good for the Dems, and with Obama well ahead in the polls, I’m really, really, really trying to keep my quite rational exuberance under control.

Another Endorsement From An Unlikely Source

From the Huffington Post column written by the person who endorsed Barack Obama today. Nothing about the Republican ticket offers the hope America needs to regain it’s standing in the world, that’s why we’re going to support Barack Obama. I think that Obama has shown his ability and integrity. After the last eight years, there’s a lot of clean up do. Roll up your sleeves, Senators Obama and Biden, and we Goldwaters will roll ours up with you. A Goldwater.  C.C. Goldwater the filmmaker and Barry Goldwater’s granddaughter to be exact. Her endorsement also announced that her siblings as well as some cousins will vote for Obama. It’s a great column from someone who wants to protect the Constitution and … Continue reading

Barbiegate™ Pushes GOP Collapse

It isn’t often that you see Pat Buchanan and Rush Limbaugh flailing wildly, flecks of foam forming around their political pottymouths. But in the last 24 hours, that’s exactly what I’ve witnessed. The Party of Lincoln™ bears about as much resemblance TO Lincoln as a grubworm does to a supernova. It is all topsy-turvy: voter suppression, outrageous lies, character assassination, crimes against the Constitution and the vocal aiding and abetting those same crimes.

Former Bush Press Secretary Endorses Obama

Embedded video from <a href=”http://www.cnn.com/video” mce_href=”http://www.cnn.com/video”>CNN Video</a> CNN gets the scoop. Scott McClellan isn’t the only former Bush staffer to endorse Barack Obama. Matthew Dowd said in 2007 that Obama was the only candidate that appealed to him. Is the Republican Party falling apart?

Craziest Republican of the Day: Sarah Palin

Well, it could be wacko Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann, who recently called Obama anti-American (and his views “against America“) and said there was anti-American sentiment in Congress, and who has been abandoned by her own party, so crazy is she, but let’s go with Palin, the predictable choice, once again. In an interview with chief theocrat James Dobson, posted yesterday, Palin said this: I know at the end of the day putting this in God’s hands, the right thing for America will be done, at the end of the day on Nov. 4. Um… right. I suspect the best thing for America would be for Palin to go back to Wasilla right after the election — hopefully a disastrous loss … Continue reading
