Let's Never Find Out

This is funniest bit of pleading and begging I have ever seen.

Colbert ain't got nothing on these people.

DOW Drops Some Stuff

I still say it's no big deal. And if I had any money I would be bottom feeding choice stocks right now.

And I still say Barack Obama will be president during a golden time of reconstruction. Just in undoing the damage of the 8 years. He will the reputation of miracle worker.

If some McCain some how wins. Let the cities fall into decay and burn. I moving to Canada, eh.

The Last Debate -- Applause

So here is what I saw. McCain talked to his base directly. It made Chris Matthews very happy but he wondered why McCain didn't do this all along.

Which brings us to why McCain lost the debate. The base are those rabid wingnuts who don't have the ability to bring people to their side anymore. If you actually look around sometime, you'll see a world which following the wingnut rhetoric made a bit less safer for us all.

I love the way nobody seems to think that telling people Democrats want to tax and spend, and that they are soft on terror will make them forget all about. Being spied on, no shoes at the airport, their sons and daughters in combat without body armor. Or the fact that Bin Laden is a free, living man still. And that your local governments have to make up for federal tax shortfalls with higher local taxes.

It's the 21st century the year is 2008. They are going to try and win it on, really you'd elect a black guy president, platform. Starting with more stories about how people are ignoring Obama's qualifications and are saying to pollsters that they would vote for a black guy. Because they don't want to offend anyones dilcate sensablilities.

Which is better than trying to McCain Palin seem like they are qualified.

Sorry I was Asleep

Like I said they will follow us with their crappy shows that we have no interest in.

Users will be able to watch full-length episodes of "Star Trek," the original "Beverly Hills 90210," and soap opera, "The Young And The Restless."

Before this deal with CBS, YouTube primarily displayed shorter clips of 10 minutes or less of television shows, although YouTube had been airing some few full-length shows from HBO and ShowTime in recent months.

To recap, the reason your on the internet more and watching TV less is because you want to freely get what on TV illegally. Rather than waiting for reruns since TV shows have short "seasons" and reruns start immediately. It's the only way they think they can make money so I knew it was just a matter of time before it happened.

John McCain Gets Stood Up for the Dance

I could have sworn I blogged about this when it happened. Obama didn't go to the lobbying reform dance with McCain. And he sent this really snippy letter to Obama. And later say it ain't so Joe Lieberman backed McCain up saying Obama promised to go with him.

I thought then this would come up some time in the future if somebody felt Obama needed taking down by showing he is willing to work with the other side. But as it came up some place else. It shows the creaky old hinges done been done come off.

The Honorable Barack Obama
United States Senate
Washington, DC 20510

Dear Senator Obama:

I would like to apologize to you for assuming that your private assurances to me regarding your desire to cooperate in our efforts to negotiate bipartisan lobbying reform legislation were sincere. When you approached me and insisted that despite your leadership's preference to use the issue to gain a political advantage in the 2006 elections, you were personally committed to achieving a result that would reflect credit on the entire Senate and offer the country a better example of political leadership, I concluded your professed concern for the institution and the public interest was genuine and admirable. Thank you for disabusing me of such notions with your letter to me dated February 2, 2006, which explained your decision to withdraw from our bipartisan discussions. I'm embarrassed to admit that after all these years in politics I failed to interpret your previous assurances as typical rhetorical gloss routinely used in politics to make self-interested partisan posturing appear more noble. Again, sorry for the confusion, but please be assured I won't make the same mistake again.

As you know, the Majority Leader has asked Chairman Collins to hold hearings and mark up a bill for floor consideration in early March. I fully support such timely action and I am confident that, together with Senator Lieberman, the Committee on Governmental Affairs will report out a meaningful, bipartisan bill.

You commented in your letter about my "interest in creating a task force to further study" this issue, as if to suggest I support delaying the consideration of much-needed reforms rather than allowing the committees of jurisdiction to hold hearings on the matter. Nothing could be further from the truth. The timely findings of a bipartisan working group could be very helpful to the committee in formulating legislation that will be reported to the full Senate. Since you are new to the Senate, you may not be aware of the fact that I have always supported fully the regular committee and legislative process in the Senate, and routinely urge Committee Chairmen to hold hearings on important issues. In fact, I urged Senator Collins to schedule a hearing upon the Senate's return in January.

Furthermore, I have consistently maintained that any lobbying reform proposal be bipartisan. The bill Senators Joe Lieberman and Bill Nelson and I have introduced is evidence of that commitment as is my insistence that members of both parties be included in meetings to develop the legislation that will ultimately be considered on the Senate floor. As I explained in a recent letter to Senator Reid, and have publicly said many times, the American people do not see this as just a Republican problem or just a Democratic problem. They see it as yet another run-of-the-mill Washington scandal, and they expect it will generate just another round of partisan gamesmanship and posturing. Senator Lieberman and I, and many other members of this body, hope to exceed the public's low expectations. We view this as an opportunity to bring transparency and accountability to the Congress, and, most importantly, to show the public that both parties will work together to address our failings.

As I noted, I initially believed you shared that goal. But I understand how important the opportunity to lead your party's effort to exploit this issue must seem to a freshman Senator, and I hold no hard feelings over your earlier disingenuousness. Again, I have been around long enough to appreciate that in politics the public interest isn't always a priority for every one of us. Good luck to you, Senator.

Palin & McCain American Exceptionalism

refers to the belief that the United States differs qualitatively from other developed nations, because of its national credo, historical evolution, or distinctive political and religious institutions.

That is really bad stuff. And it means he is McSame.

Sarah Debate

First Joe Biden's support for the Iraq resolution. What Bush said up front was not this was a green light for invading Iraq. And later Bush and Cheney said it also gave them broad sweeping powers to other things like taping our phones and torture,

Olbermann had a clip of Palin clearly speaking a rehearsed speech. I believe that was what the McCain camp saw and chose her for. And to be fair it was about getting more money.

Alan Keys, Hilary Clinton And John McCain

Seriously, what does Obama do to make all the people who go up against him go a little loopy?
